I'm so glad I finally got a chance to sit down and properly write a blog post. It's been a while that I've gotten the opportunity to take some good quality makeup photos. I've been in a bit of a rut lately with the blog, and with work, I haven't had the chance to photograph anything. Photographing makeup has always been one of my favourite things to do. I've been branching out to taking photos of other things lately (like cars), and I've really been enjoying that. Because of Easter long weekend, I decided to take the time to finally take pictures and review the Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighters that I purchased.
I purchased these a while ago when they first released, and haven't even used them until now.
Blinded by the Light is has a gorgeous white gold packaging. The packaging of the products is what sold me. I instantly knew I needed to have these highlighters in my life based on the packaging haha.
UGH. It's just so pretty. The pretty cuts into the highlighter, like a diamond, makes it that more pretty.
I couldn't resist. I swatched it before I took photos, so that's why it's not as pristine as it should be. This is probably the first time I used a product before photographing it first haha.
This one is probably my favourite, just because it's pink. It's like a nostalgic product because I have major Sailor Moon vibes when I look at it. It reminds me so much of the compact she has to transform.
As pretty as these highlighters are, they were a bit underwhelming for me. The colour payoff is there, but it doesn't shine like a thousand suns. It's a very densely pressed powder, so maybe that's why it doesn't meet my standards like the Becca shimmering skin perfectors do. You really need a deep swatch to show the pretty glimmer of this highlighter. It's very subtle, so it's not the worst highlighter I've used. Blinded by the light is my favourite of the two. It's a really pretty white gold, and with a heavy hand, it looks absolutely amazing. Ray of light may just be too dark to look good on me. If anything, it would be a good shimmer bronzer, or even a blush. It goes to show that just because the packaging is amazing, doesn't mean the product will be!
