Too Faced Cosmetics Candlelight Glow Highlighter | Review & Swatch

I have a couple of highlighters in my collection now (reviews here and here) both of different consistencies, but recently i’ve found myself wanting more of a powder product to liven up my makeup. So i trawled through every beauty website i knew and read hundreds of blog reviews until i came across this – Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo!As soon as saw it i realised it was exactly what i’ve been looking for. The packaging is gorgeous with it’s luxurious vintage style and sturdy palette which opens up to reveal a mirror as large as the lid and a stunning two toned highlighter embossed with a candlelight chandelier. One side a sheer golden colour to warm your skin tone, the other a gorgeous rose pink to brighten and illuminate. Both big enough to use alone which i sometimes do, but also just right for swirling together for a beautiful warming and brightening effect on the skin.

Using my Real Techniques Contour Brush i tend to mix both sides and apply to the cheek bones, brow bone and down the centre of my nose pretty much every day and i love the effect it gives. It applies so nicely and blends very easily for an illuminated but not shiny glow to the face. I’m so pleased i brought this highlighter and it truly is a great addition to my makeup case.

I got my Too faced Candlelight Glow palette from lookfantastic HERE for £25 and free delivery!
