Too Faced Warm Glow Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo

Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow
Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow

Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new addition to the Candlelight Glow range (the other is Rosy Glow) in a warmer tone; Too Faced also indicates that they’ve changed the formula (“We’ve revamped our bestselling highlighter by popular demand”)–I didn’t notice that bit until writing up this review, so I’ll be looking to purchase Rosy Glow in the future as well. The formula is supposed to have sheer coverage that highlights the skin. The duo is nice; they coordinate together and both have a similar warmth, and the wear is good, while the formula is consistent with how it is described. I wish there was a little more contrast between the two, because it would make the product more versatile overall (because you could always mix to lighten the darker one); on my skin tone, they look similar on, though fairer skin tones and cooler skin tones should see a stronger difference applied.

Warm Glow (Left) is a light, golden champagne with warm undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer. The finish reads more shimmery than just a glowing, luminous one, but it isn’t frosty or metallic. It adds glow and shimmer without emphasizing pores. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to apply, while the coverage is sheer. It is buildable to semi-sheer with a few layers. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight hours. Smashbox Glow (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $22.00)(95% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). NARS Albatross (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). The Estee Edit Snowlit (LE) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Flexitarian (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Lunch Money (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Flush (LE) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Perilune (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Tarte Sunlight (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Double-Gleam (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Rosy Glow (Left) (P) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Warm Glow (Right) is a light-medium, golden peach with warm, orange-y undertones and a frosted finish. The texture on this shade was a little drier compared to the left side, though not so dry that it read that way on the skin. Once blended and buffed into the skin, it also produces a strong sheen that just slightly emphasizes pores for me. This shade also lasted for eight hours before fading. Too Faced Flush (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Moonlight (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Tribulation (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE) is darker (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Jubilant (21) (P, $14.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). NYX Narcissistic (P, $9.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is darker (85% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Show Gold (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Cle de Peau Sand Beige (13) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar).

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Palette

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe
Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe ($36.00 for 0.42 oz.) includes six, miniature-sized blushes–all six that exist in the Love Flush range. The palette contains $52 worth of blush, and it is a nice way to try six for less than the price of two full-sized ones. I love the concept, and I think the quality is on-par with or better than the permanent, individual pans that came out. The big takeaway is that I think the formula is better than it rates, as it primarily gets dinged for not lasting the 16-hours promised (wear is between eight and ten hours), so if getting half the stated wear-time isn’t a deal-breaker, the formula is well-worth a look, whether an individual shade or the palette. The shades were extremely consistent with the individual compacts I tested previously; I specifically tested the shades in the palette for quality and wear, but for the photos of the blushes on my face, those were taken from original reviews.

I know the most frequently asked question/made comment was with respect to the physical width/size of the pans, and they’re large enough for an average-sized blush brush to fit (I tried a Wayne Goss Blush Brush and MAC 159 Blush Brush), but even still, the reason why it works is there is enough space between each pan, so you do not have to worry about colors mixing. Also worth noting, the packaging is very long, so it is harder to store in an average-sized makeup bag.

Love Hangover is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation (more pigmented than the individual I have!) with a soft, blendable texture that was easy to apply and diffuse on the skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Charlotte Tilbury Love Glow (P, $40.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty (Cheek Pop) (LE, $40.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (95% similar).

Justify My Love is a brightened, light-medium bubblegum pink with cool, blue undertones and a dusting of gold sparkle over a semi-matte finish.

It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable consistency that applied well and wore for nine and a half hours on me.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe ($26.00 for 0.21 oz.) is supposed to be an exceptionally long-wearing (16 hours), pigmented, and “buttery soft” blush. It’s a nice blush, but unsurprisingly, it doesn’t last 16 hours. Some shades last eight hours, others last a little closer to ten hours–it is nice wear for powder blush generally, but you’ll find that many shades’ ratings took a hit because of the 16-hour wear claim. The blush has a soft texture that’s just firm enough not to kick up a lot of excess powder, but it’s not too firm where you can’t get good color payoff when you use it. Pigmentation varied from shade to shade and ranged from semi-opaque to totally opaque, while the blush tended to blend well on the skin with a satin to luminous finish. The compacts may be a little hard to open if you have larger fingers/hands (like me), and sometimes I felt like the pattern made it harder to get good pigmentation out of the blush if I used a more feathery brush.

Too Faced Wham & Ursula La Creme Lipsticks

Too Faced Wham La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Wham La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Wham La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with warm undertones and multi-colored glitter. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and the consistency was thick enough to fill up lip lines without emphasizing them. It glided on without tugging, but it didn’t slide around too much either. It was more similar to the La Creme formula than several of the other glittery shades in the spring launch, but it did lack the opacity of the average La Creme shade. On me, it wore for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing. This was also a more unique shade, due to the shimmer and warmer tones. NARS Christina (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Milani Chilled Brandy (P, $5.49) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Glitterati (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alasdhair (LE, $35.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC O (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Didier (LE, $35.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $26.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Ursula La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.)is a dark, berry purple with subtle, cool undertones and multi-colored glitter (mostly pink and fuchsia). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly but had a tendency to sit in lip lines, darkening them, and this became more noticeable after two hours of wear. The consistency was comfortable to wear with a lot of balminess, so it slides around quite a bit. I had slight feathering after three hours, and it lasted for four and a half hours. It was lightly hydrating. MAC Musky Amethyst (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Mercy (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop 3-Way (LE, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar).

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.42 oz.) contains sixteen eyeshadows; fourteen in heart-shaped pans and two in oversized, rectangular-shaped pans. It is a primarily neutral palette that leans medium-to-dark with a few more neutral shades in it. There are four “pops” of color I would say, and there is a fair amount of pink in it (very light pink, light pink, light-medium pink, fuchsia). I liked it overall, and I found it one of the easiest Too Faced palettes to apply without primer as less shades sheered out in this palette.

Almond Truffle is a muted, medium-dark mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a really soft, smooth texture that kicked up a smidgen of excess powder, but it blended out well and applied with most of the color intact. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

It could have been more pigmented and applied more evenly on the skin. The color lasted for seven hours. Anastasia Treasure (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Exquisite Ego #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Champagne Rose (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Stila Nude Shimmer (LE, $18.00) is brighter (90% similar).

Chanel Jardin Zen #2 (LE) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sprinkles is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a soft gold sheen. It is a much darker, less shimmery take on Satin Sheets. It had decent pigmentation with a slightly powdery texture, but it was finely-milled and easy to blend out on the skin. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Sephora Kimber (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Kindness is Free (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Cheryl Chic (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Cashew Chew is a muted, light peachy-pink with warm undertones and a satin shimmer. It was slightly powdery, and it tended to look drier on my skin, so it is one that looks better over a primer (especially one with some slip). It had so-so color payoff but was prone to sheering out.

Bordeaux is a muted, dark burgundy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a silky, smooth texture that was blendable and didn’t turn patchy on me (which was a real surprise!) as it is thinner in overall feel. This shade wore well for eight hours. Tarte BFF (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Turandot #3 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Mocha is a muted, medium brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a lightly dusty but smooth consistency that blended out well and wasn’t fussy to work with. The coverage seemed better built-up than a one-and-done kind of shade. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Natasha Denona Arizona (88V) (P, $29.00) is warmer (95% similar). Inglot #357 (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar).

Black Currant is a dark, purple-plum with warm, copper undertones and a sparkling, frosted finish. It had the driest texture in the palette, and it was fussier on the lid as it tended to turn a little patchy. It is better to use Almond Truffle to blend it out than to blend it on its own, I think. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours. MAC Universal Appeal (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Aubergine (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Dark Truffle is a deep, dark chocolate brown with warm undertones and a reddish undertone paired with a pearly sheen. It had intense color payoff with a really smooth, dense texture that applied well to bare skin. It blended out nicely, but it’s a shade that is dense enough that getting sheerer coverage out of it isn’t as feasible. It wore well for eight hours on me. Giorgio Armani Senso (10) (P, $39.00) is lighter (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Fumé (Right) (P) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Precious Embroidery #4 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Pecan Praline is a light-medium taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had so-so pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture, even though it was very silky and smooth to the touch. It tended to lose intensity as it was blended out, so it would need a primer to be a real lid shade but would work fine as a transition/blending shade. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #7 (LE, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Clove (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Totally Fetch is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and fine iridescent shimmer. It had good color payoff, but it was drier and less intense compared to the first iteration of this (in the Pretty Rebel palette), unfortunately! This shade lasted for seven and a half hours.

Earl Grey is a blackened teal with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin shimmer. The teal comes through more strongly when it is diffused and blended out, but if applied more heavily, it tends to look like a charcoal black instead. The texture is somewhat dusty and dry, so it doesn’t adhere as well tob are skin–would definitely recommend a primer with this one. It wore well for seven and a half hours.

Divinity is a light beige with warm undertones and a fine, barely-there micro-sparkle.

Too Faced Clueless & Unicorn Tears La Creme Lipsticks

Too Faced Clueless La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Clueless La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Clueless La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, cotton candy pink with a ton of gold glitter and finer lavender pearl. It really doesn’t feel or look much like the La Creme formula has; it is sheerer in its base, but it is still emollient, slippery, and thick enough that for all the glitter there is, it doesn’t feel particularly gritty. It doesn’t apply evenly, unfortunately, but it had a lot of dimension and reflectiveness that I didn’t feel it looked quite as splotchy in person as it does appear in swatches. The glitter tends to bunch up a bit, which gives the lips a more textured look. It wore for three hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. It does tint the lips pink as well. Though it is going to rate abysmally, I quite enjoyed it as a total glitter-packed product, but it falls short of the La Creme promises of pigmentation, application, and hydration. It takes several removals to get all of the glitter off, even though the majority of the color/effect is removed the first time you remove it–the glitter just clings. I had a few stray glitters after wearing it. NYX Castle (P, $4.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Love Long Distance (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Pink Popcorn (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Malik (DC, $35.00) is less shimmery, warmer (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lovecraft (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Ametista (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced Unicorn Tears La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, cool-toned lavender with iridescent blue shimmer and glitter. It does tint the lips pink within five minutes of wear, and it leaves behind a soft stain after a few hours overall. It glides on without feeling gritty, but it doesn’t apply particularly evenly and the sheerer, very slippery base color gathers in lip lines. I think the shade is cool in theory if it was marketed as a sheer, layering product (but it is lumped into the La Creme formula with no distinctions made on their website), though it would still be a fussier product. Again, I think it holds up and looks better in-person than in a close-up, as it reflects more light, which helps to camouflage some of those imperfections. We actually see this hue in eyeshadow form more often, so if you happen to own one of those iterations, you might try patting that over your favorite lipstick to see if you like the effect enough to buy a tube of it in lipstick form. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating. There were a few glitter particles that were outside of the lips after wear. A lot of the sparkle remains even after removal of the color; it is hard to fully remove all the glittery bits. MAC Pick Me, Pick Me (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Opal (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Revlon Cupcake (P, $7.49) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). Surratt Beauty Cultive (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (85% similar). NYX Castle (P, $4.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). Revlon Strawberry Shortcake (P, $7.49) is less shimmery, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I really think Too Faced did a major disservice to the launch of the new spring shades, both to themselves to sell their own product but to make sure customers’ expectations were met. These are over-the-top glittery and really feel like “Sparkle La Creme” rather than “La Creme,” and I think differentiating or at least describing their new shades (of which many are quite glittery) would have gone a long way. There are some who will love the addition of glitter to the La Creme family, but I imagine others will be quite surprised at the amount of glitter in some of the shades as well. (Photos on Too Faced’s website indicate pearl but certainly not glitter!) They did a great job when they launched the Metallic versions of the Melted formula, and I feel like they could have done the same with several of the new La Creme shades.
