HELLO! It’s been a damn while, hasn’t it? Exams are finally over and I’m all unpacked at my parent’s house to visit them for the summer. I really think being home and getting settled back in has really been helping with my mental health and I’m finally in a good head space to start writing again. I have VERY exciting post featuring a really cool and unique lip brand coming in the next few weeks (and I’ve collaborated with a local distributor for all of my SSM readers!) so make sure you check it out!
Speaking of being home… my boyfriend Peter and I are officially long distance for the 4 months of summer. He lives in Toronto, and I live in Sault Ste. Marie, an 8 hour drive away. So how do you remind your girlfriend how much you love her from 8 hours away? In Peter’s mind, sending her a Sephora order. Yes – he’s that wonderful.
One of the things he sent me was the Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter (what a damn mouthful) in Blinded By The Light and y’all… Too Faced is on a ROLL.
If you haven’t seen my previous Too Faced first impression, you can check it out here.
I have to admit, I’m a bit of a Too Faced fiend. I’ve used the Chocolate Bar Palette every. Single. Day. since I got it for my 17th birthday… for reference, I’m turning 19 next month. That’s almost 2 years with my original palette, and I’ts still kickin’
My friend also recently got the Natural Love eye shadow collection and I must say, I think it’s going to be my next investment (s/o to Madi for letting me use it every time we go out!)
I already had high hopes for this highlighter, and it definitely delivered.
First of all, the packaging is precious – It’s in Too Faced’s classic heart shape, and it’s a mirrored champagne colour – because of the mirroring of the package I could nooooottttt get a picture that looked half decent. That’s my bad.
BUT in the pan….
oh. my. god. I was worried to use this because I didn’t wanna fuck it up.
I put it alllll over my face because ya girl loves a strong glow… It absolutely SNATCHED my nose contour, made my cupids bow pop, and gave my cheekbones a gorgeous glow – not quite a Nikkie blind, but it’s DEFINITELY there and its definitely poppin’
(ps – my bedroom in my parent’s house is in the basement and that’s why this is so warm toned – its artificial light. blah. I’m working on finding a lighting set up that works for me here!)
Anyways – long story short – 5 stars for this highlighter. Pigmented, gorgeous colour, easy to use. Obsessed. Pick it up here!
