Today I’ve got a review for you of one of my favorite products: Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo. It’s my favorite highlighter!
The Website Claims:
Inspired by our original Candlelight powder, our newest formula offers a more ethereal glow by using PHOTOLITE technology which diffuses harsh light, giving your skin a diffused, youthful luminosity. The powder formula is easy to apply to cheeks, brow bones, and décolleté for a quick all-over glow.
Talc, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Ultramarines (CI 77007). Candlelight Glow (Pink) Talc, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Carmine (CI 75470).
$29.00 for .35 Oz. (Metric: 10 g)
Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! It’s a fantabulous highlighter! It gives a gorgeous glow to the skin without a disco ball effect. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes a disco ball can be fun, but this is perfect to give me a glow everyday. I’ve also used it all over my face to give it a pearly luminescence, too.
I just run my ecotools duofiber brush across the entire pan of product, mixing both colors and apply in a C shape to highlight across my cheekbones. You can use each color individually with no issue though, because the pan is about the size of a foundation.
Would I purchase again?
Yes! I’ve been using this for a solid three months and barely made a dent in it. It’s a ton of product for the price, but I will definitely repurchase when I run out. I love the fine glow it gives my skin. I think it’s a perfect highlighter!
What’s your favorite highlighter for that perfect glow?
Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

I’m a highlighter junkie! This looks awesome so I’ll have to check it out. My favorite powder highlight is NARS albatross and my favorite non-powder is Benefit Watt’s Up. -Olive
Oooh. I was seriously tempted by the original Candlelight powder, but I hadn’t seen any reviews. This looks even better! I am a face color junkie and this totally needs to go in my collection! And I need to get a full sized Pink Leopard since mine is finally almost out (it was a mini in one of the Bronzed and the Beautiful palettes and it’s lasted me at least a year with near daily use!)
Too Faced products are always amazing. There are very few I don’t love. Right now, I love my Becca Shimmering liquid for highlighter. (I forget what it’s called, exactly.)
I want it from the first time I saw it…
This looks like a big winner. I love highlighters, but I don’t like dry, cakey, or glittery ones. This looks really fine and glossy.
Oooh, I want!

I just picked this up based on your recommendation I’m kind of a highlighter noob, so hopefully I can figure this out.
I’ve been wanting this. The highlighters I have are TheBalm Mary Lou-manizer and Jemma Kidd all over radiance cream in iced gold. I love them both, but I’d love to try more! I really love highlighters!
