Just when you thought you’d seen every strobing technique out there, along comes highlighter for your vulva. The product does exactly what it sounds like; instead of buffing luminizers onto your cheekbones, eyelids, or shoulders, this product is meant to be applied down there. The niche highlighter comes from The Perfect V and is named Shades of V Very V Luminizer, Refinery29 reports. According to the brand’s site, the formula is meant to “highlight,” “soften,” and “illuminate.” Shades of V instructs customers to “apply small drops” of the highlighter on their vulvas. “Iridescent color to add some extra prettiness to the V,” the description reads. It goes on to explain that the highlighter will improve skin, “making it appear more youthful and fresh,” brightening and minimizing “the appearance of skin imperfections.” And yes, this really is a thing that exists, although it’s currently only available in Scandinavia.
While we’re always down to explore new ways to highlight, we do want to stress that your vagina and vulva don’t need to be “improved.” Having a vulva free of iridescent color won’t make yours any less perfect than it is. As for “skin imperfections,” if you have a pimple down there, there are ways to treat it instead of covering it up — and you can always visit your gynecologist as well. For now, when it comes to luminizing our lower bodies, we’ll probably stick with glitter butt.
