This doesnt show at all no matter how much u put…i m nc 30 skin tone and it doesnt work no matter how i try…save ur money and skip this one if u looking for a highlighter…
Not very much of anything. Had to apply a ton for it to show up.
I bought this product today and disliked it so much, I couldn't wait to give it a less than favorable review here on Makeupalley. I thought I wanted a 'subtle' highlight, which is why I chose this rather than the Candlelight Glow compact, but this is just ridiculous. Too Faced have really stayed true to their word as this compact truly is invisible in most lights- what a waste of money!!
I wanted a nice fresh glow, but on the very rare occasion you can see the shimmer on my face it just makes me look jaundice. I don't really know what I was expecting, but this certainly wasn't it. I have medium-light skin which is warm toned, but this highlighter was definitely more yellow toned than I wanted, I don't understand how some girls with more neutral/cooler/paler tones got along with this product..
How on earth this has got such rave reviews is beyond me.
I don't find it flattering in the slightest. Awful product. I am going to try my damndest to get a refund on this.
Meh. I really wanted to like this. I thought it would give me a subtle shimmer/glow whether tan or pale that I could wear for day. The product is pressed so tightly, it's difficult to pick up any on a brush and it's really quite invisible...as the name states. I wanted subtle, but this is just TOO subtle for my liking. I find the sponge applicator quite useless and tried dabbing it on with that, to no great effect. I tried using my ring finger to pat it on, but still barely detectable. Unless you want a very very subtle 'candlelight glow' all over your face (using a big powder brush) but are NOT looking to use this as a highlight for cheeks or browbone, don't bother with this one.
This is definitely my go to setting powder, especially during the summer. It works just as well at maintaining my makeup as any other powder, but the finish is lovely and subtle. It adds a nice glowiness and sparkle that does not emphasize pores or make you look like a disco ball. My only complaint is that the product is too tightly pressed to use with a finishing brush (I have to use a super fat kabuki if I hope to pick up any product) yet the included sponge applied the powder way too densely and wastes product. That aside though, I get so many compliments on my skin when I wear this! I would, and have, repurchase.
Nice product, cute packaging with mirror. The shimmer in this is warm, a bright, radiant gold, the shimmer is not too noticeable and therfeore suitable for everyday wear if not applied too geneously. Real nice!
I loved this when I first got it, but after having used it for a few weeks, I started thinking disliking it. The reason for this is really just the fact that it is so tightly pressed, I have to really work the brush into it to get powder out. I just can't be bothered with it. It looks nice on my skin, that's not the problem. I just wish it would be easier to use. Have considered crushing it, but I haven't. This would be excellent as a loose powder. If I get around to buying a new container for it, and actually manage to mill it finely enough, I might start using it again. For now, it is in the bag for stuff I don't want to give away, but don't really use. I find the new powder from clarins is much better. It gives you that look, like your face is glowing naturally and is not at all wearing make up.
This product is ok, not more, not less.
I really like this powder, It seems to be the perfect color for me with just enough shimmer. It is good for a daytime look. The compact is really cute and I like the mirror inside. The price is on the more expensive side, but just like with all Too FAced products, you get what you pay for. I would def. buy this again.
I like this product a lot and would buy it again. I had a hard time deciding to buy this one or the other Too Faced Candle Light powder that is split with a pink shade. I am glad I chose this one. If you try them at Ulta, you will see the difference. This is truly subtle!
This, to me, is not a traditional highlight which it does not claim to be, but if you are looking for that, this is not the product for you. It is very subtle and as it says, invisible. You are not going to truly see it when you apply it but it does change the way your face and makeup look. It does create a soft focus/candle light type of look. I use it at the end of my makeup with a fluffy brush all over. I can even go over my nose and it does not make it shiny, which I LOVE! It does not make me shiny over time, either, which is important to me and can happen with other powders.
Too Faced has great packaging so no complaints on that. I do think it is priced high but that is to be expected from Too Faced. The only drug store comparison I can make is Physicians Formula Happy Booster Powder in translucent, but it is not quite the same.
I love that you can't really see it. To me, that is perfect and what I am looking for. No sparkles, no glitter, no shimmer, no shine, and it does not change the color of your face.
Overall I think it is a great product and does what it claims!
I found this product a little bit confusing at first, because on the front it says 'softly illuminating translucent powder' which I would commonly associate with a setting powder rather than a highlighter, but it is way too shimmery to ever use all over my face so I have only ever used it as a highlight. I do like it alot, it is a very soft highlight, looks very nice and natural when applied to the right areas. I deduct a point based on the fact that for me, it takes a bit of bulding up for me to actually notice anything happening. It looks like it will be very shimmery and seemed very shimmery when swatched but when it came to my face it looked like I hadn't done anything at all, even in the light. So I have to have a slightly heavier hand when applying it. Only slightly though, I would never want to look too glittery! It has really nice packaging too, as per normal, as all Too Faced products are always packaged rather beautifully. I know it can be pretty expensive to buy, luckily I managed to get mine mid price from ebay so I was pretty happy about that. I would recommend and most likely buy again.
