Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighters

Blinded by the Light

Too Faced Blinded By the Light Love Light Prismatic Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a very light beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, pearly finish. I could just barely detect a subtle sheen on the skin when I applied this, as it was quite sheer and did not build as I tried to layer it–it just seemed to add bits of sparkle that did not stay well on the skin (lots of migration over time). The texture was smooth, firm but did not seem like it was going to be problematic, and it definitely didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture! What I could see of the highlighter seemed to last for seven hours no me.

The formula was described as having “gorgeous color payoff” that will yield a “mesmerizing metallic shine.” The powder was smooth, firmer (you’ll want to use a denser brush for picking up color), and it was quite blendable on the skin, but a lot of the product didn’t seem to actually adhere that well to the skin, because despite seeing product on my brush, the formula translated to something much sheerer and more subdued. The powder did seem to get softer and easier to use (with more traditional highlighting brushes) after a few uses. In reality, the formula was less “metallic shine” and more moderate sheen. This is the type of texture that can often be used with a dampened brush, which helps with improving coverage and increasing the reflectiveness of the finish–though I did not see Too Faced mention it specifically about theirs.

I think this product is going to work best for someone who wants a subtle to moderate sheen, doesn’t mind fine sparkle, and likes sheerer products.

Ray of Light

Too Faced Ray of Light Love Light Prismatic Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a soft, sparkling sheen. This shade had medium, somewhat buildable coverage, but the shimmer did not bind as well with the base powder, so I felt like the more I blended out the product on my cheeks, the less apparent the sheen was. The powder felt smooth across the surface, but it was firmer and denser overall; I preferred using a blush brush (greater density, on average) compared to a tapered highlighting brush for application. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

You Light Up My Life

Too Faced You Light Up My Life Love Light Prismatic Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. This shade was the most pigmented and had the strongest sheen out of three released. The texture seemed softer and while still dense, more forgiving and easier to get product onto my brush. It was easy to blend out on the skin, though it seemed to have more shimmer than sheen, and more shimmer than real color to it, so it ended up being less intense in practice than it appeared in the pan. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.
