Hi hi hi!
I’m not sure if you were excited as I was when I first caught a glimpse of Too Faced’s Spring collection – I immediately knew I wanted to get my hands on the highlighters, I wanted all THREE of them. However, I decided to just buy one to see how I liked it. Let’s jump right into the review!
What It Is: “Go from subtly lit to dramatically strobed. Using unique Prisma Shine patented technology, Love Light combines the best of powder, liquid, baked and cream formulas for an unparalleled radiance. Universal shades light you up all day and night. You GLOW girl!” – toofaced.com
There are three different colors in this Prismatic Highlighter collection – Ray of Light (Rose Gold), You Light Up My Life (Gold), and Blinded by the Light (silver/pink). I picked up Ray of LIght because I felt like it would give me some warmth with hints of a pinky sheen to it. First off, when I opened the box, I was pretty bummed out because it looked like straight gold (compared to the marketing/pr images), but I thought, it’s fine, as long as the product inside had a rose gold look to it. As soon as I opened it, I felt a tinge of disappointment because the actual product looked like straight gold. So of course I double check the back of the product, box, and my receipt to make sure I received the correct color and everything said that I got the correct shade.
Then I thought, maybe if I swatched it, I would see more of the rose gold coming through. A little more disappointment came creeping back up, because what I saw in my swatch was more gold. No hints of pink in there whatsoever. So finally I thought that maybe once I apply it, I will see more hints of the rosey sheen coming through. Nope, it looked like every other gold highlighter I had. I have to say that I was disappointed due to the fact that this isn’t exactly what I was hoping to get. I was expecting a rosey-gold glow, but instead it was just straight gold.
If you are expecting this to be a “blinding” highlighter, then you are definitely in the wrong place, because this will not give you that result. Like the product description claims it does provide a glow – it’s not extremely natural, because the finish is more metallic/pearlescent than other natural highlighters. I feel like companies need to start having some type of differentiation between highlighters and “glowers.” For a product that provides additional glow, I would highly suggest this because it’s so easy to use and lasts almost all day. If you do have textured skin, you will want to be careful about how much you apply, because much like a highlighter if you apply too much, you will draw unnecessary attention to those areas and it can catch on some of your dry areas as well.
As much as I love Too Faced and a lot of the products that they have come out with, I wish I could have fallen in love with this highlighter, I really wanted to love it, but there is nothing about it that makes it special. Unfortunately, this is a product that I would not recommend getting, especially because of the price point. I would say if you are a collector and love to collect makeup products that have unique packaging or the product itself has a unique shape, then I would say this would be something you would want to add to your collection.
