Absolutely beautiful product! I needed a new highlighter cause my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick was all gone and as much as I love it, it's almost 40 dollars which is pretty expensive for a highlighter. I'd splash out that much for a foundation or moisturizer but a highlighter? Felt a little guilty about that. I figured I'd try something different and cheaper. Hard Candy is a very popular brand at my Walmart. They have a huge selection of products. I saw this and was really interested in it. First of all the actual color is beautiful. It's a beautiful pinky pearly color. At first on my hand I thought it came off a bit purple? But on my face it doesn't at all so don't get thrown off too much. The texture is very creamy and very easy to blend out! DOES NOT feel greasy or oily though which I was thinking it would but the finish is glowy but not over the top! The only thing I don't really like is the packaging. I like the fact it's in a squeeze tube but the tube is HUGE. It's 2.7 oz, that's more than my foundation! It's so big that it takes up a lot of room in my makeup bag and kinda makes me wanna leave it out? I know that sounds a bit nit picky and ridiculous but for a highlighter I don't need nearly that much. It's great that Hard Candy isn't stingy with their packaging though! Haha. That's the only con I have. Everything else about it is great. Not to mention you can get it at Walmart for 8 dollars which is pretty good. Definitely worth a try if you're looking for a nice highlighter!

This product is very similar to Benefit's Highbeam and Nyx's Liquid Illuminator! All have a pink-ish tint to them and blend out with a sheen on the face. This product is great - it's very blendable, soft, and somewhat sheer so you can build it up for more/less shine. The tube also carries an insane amount of product - I will probably never use up this entire tube in my lifetime, so it's great value for money. I put this on after foundation and it blends seemlessly into the skin on my cheekbones, nose, and chin - it really does give an illuminated, porcelain, effect. A definite recommend!

I like this product! I bought this at Walmart for only $8 and you get a ton of product which is definitely worth the money and you don't need that much to begin with either. I use half a pea size to full pea size, daily, so this thing is going to last for a long time!
I only use this on my bridge of my nose, right above my cheek bone, on my cupid's bow, and sometimes my chin. I don't put the product directly on my face, but I blend a bit first on my back of my hand first then work it in on my face. I do this because this product has a pinkish tone and it contains a lot of shimmer. So I blend it a bit on my hand before on my face so I won't rub my foundation out and I won't want too much shimmer. It blends really well though.
It gives me a very nice glow and highlights the areas I want. However, the only one downside is it doesn't last the whole day. It does disappear and the only want to make it last longer is don't touch your face even with primer and translucent powder.
Could this product be better? Yes. But nonetheless, I will buy this product again! And you should too!

I bought this since I am running out of my Carmindy highlighter. It was $8 at Wal-Mart. I like the fact that it's in a squeezy tube, but I'm not crazy about the size of it- I guess you get a lot of product, but it's really big, which makes it hard to store. The product itself feels smooth and is a nice pinkish colour, but is a bit too shimmery for me, and doesn't blend as easily as the Carmindy one.

I love this product.It's an awesome highlighter especially since it comes with 76 grams of product.This goes on so flawlessly it never wipes off the products underneath probably because there is no greasiness to this product.It's a pink toned high lighter but not frosty like some highlighters.I really find with a light hand can really give you have lit from within look. This also looks great when added to matte foundations so that your face will have some dimension without being glittery or overly sparkly.
For 8 dollars if you're into the pink toned highlights I would check out this one.On my next trip to Walmart I will be buying the golden one.

Really really love most things about this product..
-Beautiful, luminous, slightly-pink shimmery sheen (I use it on my cheeks and highlight area underneath my eye)
-Doesn't accentuate my pores!!
-TONS of product for $8 (one of the two reasons I wouldn't repurchase, lol)
-It does sort of remind me of Benefit's High Beam, in terms of color
-Has not broken me out
-Does not seem to set or last...looks great when first applied, but one accidental wipe/dab of the area, no matter how long after application (even over a primer, foundation, etc.), and it's gone :-(
I still really like this product though, and am contemplating getting one of the gold ones.
FYI: For ladies who want a great highlighter and are willing to dole out the cash for it, the best long-lasting highlighter I've ever found is Dalton's H2Glo (it's a white highlight)! My mom gave me hers, and I love it!

Let me begin by saying that I absolutely ADORE this product!
I bought this on a whim while browsing the Hard Candy section in the makeup aisle of Walmart (yeah, crazy). I don't use blush because I have a prominent pink undertone (as is typical with redheads) and it tends to make me look clownish even when used sparingly. I decided to go ahead and purchase this in place of a blush because it has a slight pink hue with a ton of luminosity. A dab of this, distributed between the first two fingers of each hand, and swept lightly on the cheek bones and brow arch (sometimes on the inner corners of the eyes) creates THE PERFECT dewy glow with a hint of color.
The packaging is pink, shimmery, and pretty. <3
The value is amazing! Talk about bang for your buck! You get a gigantic tube for under $10 (and you can actually buy it at your local Walmart).
This is absolutely a staple for me.

I'm very pleased with this purchase. You get a ton of product for very little price. I've tried more expensive, high end products but this is just as good and at a more reasonable price. For me on my NC25 skin, it leaves a slight shimmer that blends into my skin tone. I use a pea-sized amount on the top of both cheekbones and over my eyebrows and it makes my skin glow without being overly shimmery. For me, it really is a glow. It does look pink out of the tube but like the other reviewer stated, it melds into my more yellow but fair skin. I'm going to try the bronze glow to mix into my body lotions for an all-over glow.

After years of searching I have finally found my Holy Grail highlighter, I'm SO pleased with this $8 USD purchase!
I'm quite hard to please when it comes to highlighters, liquid, cream, or powder. I have very finicky clog-prone, oily, fair skin, with very large/visible pores. So the majority of highlighters I've tried either enhance the look of my large pores, enhance my oily skin, break me out, or don't work with ultra pale skin like mine (I'd be just a hair lighter than NC15 in MAC for reference) But I've struggled with NONE of the above issues with this Glow All The Way Doll Face Highlighter, it's perfect!
It does appear a bit pink when it's first squeezed from the tube, but once it's blended into the skin it leaves behind nothing but glowing goodness. It's slightly shimmery, slightly sparkly, slightly sheen-y - It has a little bit of everything I could need or want in a highlighter, but not to the point where it's overbearing (which I am thankful for because my 30yr old skin can't handle TOO MUCH shimmer or sparkle in a highlighter these days!)
I got a Hard Candy gift set last Christmas (2011) and a sample size tube of this product was included. I never even tried it or gave it a second look until several months ago because I'd became so frustrated with highlighters enhancing and causing flaws rather than flattering skin like they should. So I was going through my makeup and found the sample of Doll Face, gave it a try and was instantly wowed. Needless to say I completely finished the sample, and repurchased the full size. I can not believe the mega size of this squeeze tube for only $8! &Since purchasing the full size almost 2 months ago I've used it daily and barely made a dent in it - lots of product here! I personally apply this with my finger, I do it in "dots" - a dot in the mid.forehead, a dot on both of my eyebrows, a dot right above each cheekbone, a dot on each side of my lips, and a dot on my cupid's bow - Perfection! :-)
Every review I do, whether I love or hate the product, I try to leave some constructive criticism regarding it, because not many things are really perfect in every way for me. But I honestly can't think of anything wrong with this. The packaging is a squeeze tube so I'm not sticking my fingers in any tubs or anything unsanitary, I can apply this just as easily with my fingers as I can a brush so no special brushes are needed for precise application, the price is amazing, and best of all it has given my goofy skin zero issues with flakies, enhancing large pores, clogging pores, or acne. Truly a 5 star / 5 lippie worthy product! I highly recommend this and do plan to repurchase!

This is a nice highlighted. leaves a soft glowly look with a hint of pink in it. Packaging is attractive a metallic pink that catches your eye. Price isn't that considering you get a whole lot of product for $8 2.7 oz. But I wouldn't buy it again because it fades quickly and I feel like my skin I oily enough to where I don't need highlighters for a dewy look

I personally think this is super glittery. I cant fibd a way to my it work on my face. I do use it on my eyelids as a cream eyeshadow with my pink and purple looks. It works fine for that. But not on my face

Hard Candy's Glow All The Way Skin Lumiziner is a liquid highlighter for face and body. Available in two shades; Doll Face which I have, and Glamazon Bronze. Hard Candy says that these pearly highlighters compliment all skin tones. Hard Candy is a former high end brand previously sold in Sephora and department stores, it's not exclusively available in Walmart. Awkz. Hard Candy claims that this highlighter is "infused with 24 Karat gold for a million dollar look". I don't believe that. I received this product in a swap with my friend Mariah. It retails for $8. My tube contains 9.9g (.35oz), for some reason I don't think this is a full size tube but I might be wrong. This product was made in the USA. Hard Candy does not test on animals.
Packaging for Doll Face is cute. A pink squeeze tube with a twist on cap. The front of the tube features the Hard Candy logo, the name of the product, and a short description in English and French, written in white lettering. A slightly longer description along with some company info can be found on the back of the tube. I prefer liquid highlighters in tubes, they seem more sanitary than those in palette form or with a brush, plus I feel like it's easier to get the exact amount I want. Good job Hard Candy, they always have cute packaging.
Glow All the Way has a nice texture. It's on the thicker side for a liquid highlight. Not greasy or sticky, very easy to blend out with fingers or a brush. This liquid luminizer sets quickly and doesn't transfer after that. A little goes a long way, you only need a small dab to highlight both cheekbones.
Doll Face is claimed by some to be a dupe of Benefit's High Beam. I recently acquired High Beam, and I can safely say that they're not even similar. Doll Face is a light shimmery pink that's best suited for those with cool skin tones. High Beam, on the other hand, is more of neutral champagne shade with only hints of pink. Doll Face's pink tint may seem threatening at first, but it mostly blends away, leaving behind a moderate amount of shimmer. Because it's a shimmery highlight some may feel like its too strong, or may be better for evening, but I don't think it's too much but maybe that's just me, highlighters suit me.
I like Hard Candy's Glow All the Way Lumiziner. It's a good quality highlighter, something that's hard to find in the drugstore level. It may be too pink for those with neutral or warm skin, or too shimmery for some tastes, but it's not overly intense to the point that it isn't wearable, it's really a matter of preference. Doll Face is not the High Beam dupe some may say it is, so don't disappoint yourself if that's what it looks like. I probably wouldn't repurchase it because I love trying new highlighters or luminizers. If you're cool toned and enjoy somewhat shimmery highlights for a fair price consider Hard Candy's Doll Face. Special thanks to Mariah for sending this product my way.

I love this product, it highlights my face really well! I apply it to my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. Also, i use an eyeshadow brush and put a bit of bronzer on the sides of my nose. this mixed with the Glow all the way makes my nose look wonderful!
The only trouble I had with it is that I need to reapply it a couple times during the day, but it's worth it.
To people having troubles with this product- if its too pink for you, just take a tiny dot of it at once and go from there to avoid using too much.

Overall, I really like this highlighter. I'm not a huge fan of the Benefit High Beam as it is way too white for my liking so this was a great alternative. It gives me a little more colour with the pink. I also like that this doesn't deposit a bunch of glitter on my face. I apply a little bit to my cheekbones and browbones and it gives such a nice shimmer without looking like a hot mess. Plus, for the price (I paid around $8 CDN) you get a ton of product. This will honestly last me forever. If I ever do run out, I will repurchase!

This is a great drugstore highlighter! It's a pinky glow color. Beautiful. It does tend fade but you can easily fix that by putting Hard Candy's Baked Blush in Honeymoon. Looks gorgeous put together. Recommend! :)

This product is just okay. It works well, just not sure if I like how it looks on my skin since it gets oily. I will not repurchase.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I tried and returned this product so for now I'll say that I won't repurchase. I thought this would be like Benefit High Beam but it comes out a tiny little bit too pink. I swatched them side by side on my hand and actually when sheered out the Hard Candy came out a little like the High Beam. My thought was that I wouldn't be able to get through this huge tube of product as a highlight in my lifetime. I didn't think it was terrible but I just didn't think I'd be able to use it since I already have so many other things.

Am I the only one thinking..Ughh I hate this?
My highlighter I GOT was totally NON-PIGMENTED...I applied it and it just made my skin all oily and didn't deposit any color. I have a light skin tone and it didn't show up at all!! I was so disappointed.

After emptying my wallet over and over again for Benefit's High Beam, I began a desperate search for a new highlighter/illuminator. Let me start off my saying; I still absolutely ADORE High Beam and would happily buy it all the time if I were Bill Gates. But sadly, Bill Gates, I am not. So, in order to give my poor little wallet a break, I began researching for "comparable" highlighters. I stumbled across some good ones most were almost just as expensive as High Beam, if not more. I came across Hard Candy's Glow All The Way in Doll Face. I read some pretty positive reviews and decided to give it a try. For almost four months since first hearing about it, it was always sold out at Walmart... Always! Finally, after essentially giving up,the heaven's opened up while I was wasting time in the beauty aisle and little rays of light practically beamed down at it. I grabbed it, excitedly squeaked about it to my fiance (who didn't understand what all the fuss was about but was supportive none the less), and ran home to give it a try. Let me start off by saying that this bottle is HUGE. It will last a VERY long time. It's quite a steal for $8 and 2.7oz worth of product (see picture I added with it in my hand for size comparison). Also, the packaging is pretty cute. And I haven't had any problems with my lid not shutting tightly likes others have mentioned, so I guess I just got a good tube. Now, for the product itself, when you first squeeze it out, it's VERY pink and golden. It claims it's "infused" with 24 karat gold but I think they're fibbing there. I was seriously doubting my purchase initially BUT it blends incredibly well and melts into your skin like butter. So make sure you blend, blend, blend, ladies! It is more pink-y and golden than High Beam, which is a little more creamy and cool, but if you blend it well it still works very well and appears subtle and not over the top. For those that say it looks too much like "clubbing" make up, I find that with some great blending and light powder on top, it really isn't garish at all. If you'd like to see the difference between High Beam and this, see the picture I added. (High beam is swatched on the top of my hand and Glow All The Way is one the bottom.) I also like this packaging better than High Beam's. High Beam is quite small and I'm not a fan of "brush" applicator and it's nearly impossible to get all of it out of the jar. Glow All The Way is nice because you can squeeze it directly on your fingers. Overall, I found this product to be a worthwhile purchase. I will say that I do not think it's a dupe of High Beam but it's a pretty darn good substitute. So if you're like me and you're looking for a cheaper alternative, this is your ticket.
Good luck, ladies!

This product does what it intends! It creates a beautiful glow on the face with a nice pink tone. It blends very well with the skin and has a nice shimmer. The only bad part I can say is that it doesn't stay on the skin for a very long time. Since the bottle is quite large it is not something that you can just casually carry around making is inconvenient to re-apply.
Also since my cheeks are a little rosy to begin with, this product does bring that out but with the right foundation it looks very nice!
