Here is Illamasqua- Rare! I'm not sure when this color came out, but it's at least a few years old. I just could find no information on that. If you know, please share!
This is going to be a super quick swatch. I didn't actually intend to swatch/ photograph this one, so didn't properly allocate time in which to do so. But, I wore it, saw how awesome it was, and knew I needed to take at least a few photos!
Rare is an almost-neon, highlighter yellow creme. I will say that the camera had some trouble with this one. The truth is just that it can look very changeable depending on the lighting. It can appear as a screaming highlighter neon, or it can look like a bright, creamy banana yellow.

I had fun wearing this one!
Formula: For a yellow, it's good! It does need four coats for a decent level of opacity, which is a bummer, and your first couple of coats will be streaky. However, it has no issues with cuticle drag or anything else weird, which is a huge boon. I also experienced no bubbling even though the formula was on the thicker side.
So, not my favorite Illamasqua formula ever, but pretty damn OK for a yellow!
