The Too faced Prismatic Highlightersare recently new out in the UK, and I have had my eye on these for a quite a while, as soon as I saw pictures of these at the end of last year I knew I needed them In my life, I mean we all know I am a massive highlighter junkie, I have quite the collection so I like to think I know a fair bit about all the different brands and formulas etc.
These highlighters seem to be getting a lot of mixed reviews at the moment and a few people I know have either sold theirs or absolutely love it, so I know there is a bit of a divide when it comes to these but I was excited to personally try them myself as everyone is different and looks for different things when it comes to makeup, I like a subtle, buildable highlight that soaks into the skin and doesn’t just sit on top of the skin and show all your texture, as I really dont think that’s a good look on me.
So keep on reading to see my thoughts on these and If I would recommend…
The shade I have is blinded by the lightwhich is the lightest out of the 3 available, personally its more suitable for my skin tone because I’m more on the pale side, and lately I’m really loving pearl and pink toned highlighters over the usual bright golds!
Blinded by the light is a creamy off white pearl almost like a really light white Champaign gold, does that make sense?! I hope it does ha ha I think it’s because it has a pearlescent tone to it and reflects all different colours, one minute it looks white and then the next it looks more white gold, but what I love about it is the fact it’s not a full on white colour as sometimes white highlighters can look really intimidating to use, but this shade is really beautiful and I think would look amazing on a lot of skin tones. Even If you’re more medium to dark skin tone then this will look gorgeous as a brow and inner eye highlighter also.
I’ve tried taking these close-ups so you can really see that light reflecting pigments
The texture is described as a liquid to powder finish, and claims to make the skin feel and look more luminous and radiant. It has a new formula that uses pearls in their orignal shape rather than crushing them, which enables the light reflecting pigments to float in the powder and be visible from any angle. Urm yesss!! I love the sound of this, and I would definitely agree with the light reflecting claim, I think this highlighter is super pigmented and really does give off that pearlescent finish to the skin which I love. The texture is super silky and smooth and doesn’t feel like a powder at all when applied, it is really subtle and buildable but blends and soaks into the skin nicely, it really does look gorgeous. I think that’s why these are getting so many mixed reviews in the makeup community at the moment as I know a lot of people love the intense powder highlighters that you can see from “outer space” as they say, but with these I think it gives off more of that “glow from within” look which I personally love but others maybe aren’t wowed by. But I know I was and I went on my insta stories to show it off as it looked incredible.
You can see here I was wearing it on the tops of my cheek bones and above my brow, I love how natural and radiant it looks on the skin and makes the skin look so glowy but not to over the top which I prefer, but if you are one of these people who love an intense glow I definitely think you can achieve it with these.
Can we just also appreciate the packaging on these, how gorgeous is it?? I am a sucker for pretty packaging, I love the metallic heart shape and the design and texture of the pan is so unusual. It really stands out especially on my vanity, I mean who doesn’t want pretty makeup to admire?! It’s almost to pretty to use.
I definitely give these Prismatic highlighters a big thumbs up and I’m really impressed, I really want to check out the other 2 shades now as I feel like I need the whole set ha ha, I am a massive lover of Too Faced and their collections are always so eye catching. I really need to get my hands on the natural love eyeshadow palette next that came out around the same time as these, it looks so gorgeous. Too Faced never seem to disappoint. If you’re a fellow highlighter addict like me then I definitely think you need these and will love them just as much as I do.
