I've seen some negative things about this product but I'm in love with it. The packaging is adorable like most of the Too Faced products are. This truly gives the illusion of candlelight! You can make this very sheer or bold, it blends out so easily and a little bit goes a long way. So far I've used a little bit of it over BB for my everyday look and it gave off a nice dewy look. I also used it over heavy foundation and got a lovely shimmery night out look. It is very versatile!
It doesn't have any scent to it that I've noticed which to me is just fine. I really love that natural, light feel when wearing it. Some other powders are very uncomfortable for me, and almost feel itchy. I don't think a lot of ppl understand that it is not meant to conceal, rather than just give a nice glow. Normally I don't like shimmery things on my face, but this is very fine and doesn't make my imperfections worse like a lot of powders do without heavy foundation. To me, the fact that it's made with real gold is awesome lol I will 100% buy this again when it runs out. It is slightly pricey when compared to others but you get what you pay for!
P.S. I first tried this with no other makeup on just to see what it was like. When I came out, my boyfriend said "that new cream made your face look so much brighter" hehe he couldn't tell I had makeup on! He thought I just used my new masque, which I didn't.

Thought it would be a great setting powder, but now all I use it for is an eyeshadow.

I mean to grab the pink/white highlighter but accidentally got this instead. At first I was annoyed and came pretty close to returning it.

Back story, I really wanted the Guerlain balls, but couldn't swallow the price. I love me some dewy skin, some thing to airbrush out the acne scars. I'd been using PP Pearls, which were great for the price but had the slightest silvery cast. This is fine if that's what you're going for, but Candle light has a bit more of a golden tone that looks more natural on me.

It probably won't do a lot if you want oil control, but looks really pretty over a lot of NARS blushes. I love this on my cheeks and forehead.

Now, for what it is this stuff costs a fortune. I don't blame anyone for not getting this due to the price as it's not earth shattering, but I like this better than others I've found.

I ran out of this a little while ago and haven't been able to find it since- they stopped carrying it at my Sephora and the Ulta near me is really hit-and-miss on what it has, but I just found it on Amazon, and repurchased it.

This isn't really a highlighter, whoever set this up here made a mistake. It might work as a highlighter on some people, but on my ghost-like complexion it works perfectly as a finishing powder. It sets my foundation or BB cream perfectly, gives a little bit of lovely shimmer (but not so much that I look like I'm trying to cosplay Edward Cullen). It's a bit of a splurge, but it's great for those days when you want something a bit fancier than plain old pressed powder.

Love this powder. In my opinion, this would not do well using this product as just a highlighter. So if that is what you're looking for, this would not work for you. This is meant to be a finishing powder. Much like the famous Hourglass Ambient Light Powders. I love the beautiful glow this product gives to my finished look. Does not look shimmery or oily. Just a healthy looking complexion. I'm oily and acne prone and this product has not caused any problems. Love it!

I think some of you may be misunderstood about what this product is, it's not a highlighter. It's a translucent face powder with sparkle to give you that dewy, healthy, soft glowing skin.

Personally I love the dewy look. When opening the compact the spects of gold in the press powder seemed intimidating but it's very subtle, doesn't make you look overly (Twilight Edward) sparkly. It sets my concealer very nice, no crease, no cake. I don't really have an oily T zone, my oil zones are just pretty much my nose and a little around it. But a light dust doesn't give me the MATTE look, it just makes my skin look fresh.

This product is light on my skin, i wish I can tell you the smell but my allergies are pretty much here to stay. Hehe - I hoped this helped

Same concept as the Hourglass powders except Too Faced Candlelight has been around longer and just isn't as celebrated or as raved over. This is a really finely milled powder, I would consider it a translucent powder with a very discreet gold shimmer.

I have Normal/Combination skin and use this all over as a finishing powder after foundation and loose/pressed powder has been applied, I find any face powder brush does the trick though my favourite method at the moment is to use a small powder brush to apply loose powder and finishing powder. Candlelight can even be used over under- eye concealer to set as it is so fine. It doesn't upset or affect other products applied previously - just glides over the top.

On my NC15 skin I find I cant really see the powder once it has been applied but it definately gives me a softly lit from within healthy glow. At 9g you get a fairly decent amount of product and I just have to say Too Faced really know how to do cute and girly packaging.

This is a really nice pressed highlighting powder. The packaging is beautiful as always with Too Faced. The first day I used it as the sales person recommended, as a translucent setting powder, and left the house with an almighty glow... not a good look!! Since then I have been using it as a subtle highlight high on my cheekbones, and just a very light dusting on my forehead and chin. I use the Jane Iredale Handi brush for application. A little bit more for evening is also nice. It's lovely in conjunction with a bronzer for a glamorous finish.

I went to Sephora asking for a highlighter for the cheeks, etc. The SA that helped me showed me this, and in the bright lights they have there I thought it was really pretty, so I bought it. When I got home and tried it on, I couldn't even see where I put it. I love highlighters, and I own quite a few, but every single one I own..I can see. I've done some more research on this product, and read it is best for an all over powder. I can see how this would be good to dust over your skin for a subtle brightening effect, but that's not what I was looking for. This is not a highlighter, I returned it for something else. I recommend testing stuff like this first in different lights, because you can't always count on the opinion of someone else.

I just bought this yesterday and wore it to work this morning. so far, I love it. At 42 with some fine lines and somewhat dry skin, this helps blur and mask imperfections as well as make me glowy but not shiney or glittery. This IMO wouldn't make a good highlighter since it's so subtle but as an all over dusting to set my foundation I think it's perfect. The older I get the more I realize that the matte terra-cotta dry skin I craved as an oily faced teen isn't flattering. Older skin needs a bit of glow to appear youthful. :)
