If it shows up at Sephora, I’ll probably pick it up, but being it’s a TF exclusive *at the moment* + shipping costs (and I know that I won’t have time to test it for the next two weeks), I’m trying to wait to see if Sephora will have it!

Allison Avatar

I’ve heard these have been popping up in Sephoras in JCPenney so I think it will be released in the formal store, too, when the release date comes. We shall see! I saw someone do a mini-review of it today but she didn’t test on camera, I am just not so sure about it.

I don’t know about this one. Hopefully they make a video on how to use this. Because I can’t picture anyone wanting to look their cool ethereal light filters lol. Perhaps a bit too gimmicky. :/

Autumn Avatar

I’m not sure how I feel about it? I can honestly say that this is the first product to leave me slightly speechless. In theory, cool idea.. But useful? Doesn’t seem so.

Evie Avatar

This is so unbelievably gimmicky but I WANT IT. That purple powder is really doing it for me and I can’t figure out how to get my hands on the Besame violet brightening powder (#canadaproblems).

sophia Avatar

Can you get nyx in canada? They just came out with a loose purple finishing powder thats $10 us. Or maybe you have a friend in the us that can send you besame violet?

Carrie Avatar

Seriously?! I mean, nice of them to put out some finishing powders and what not, but I find this packaging to just be all of my no. Not everyone is freaking selfie obsessed!

Mahatma Avatar

I’m kind of on the fence about them :/ they look really shimmery and too pigmented (the packaging isn’t even showing a photo of someone who used it, unless they applied this powder on to the dog’s face and Parises skyline XD)

Katherine Avatar

These seem a bit gimmicky to me. Besides, people look so unnatural when they apply IG filters. Do you really want to look like that in real life? But at the same time, if done right, they could have the potential to make you look flawless and glowing. Maybe I’ll have to give them a try, just to test it 😉

Neetz Avatar

I’m guessing this is in a similar vein as the Hourglass Ambient Powders? But these look too intensely colored to be of much help…like that yellow and purple look very intimidating.

Mariella Avatar

I also wondered if this was hopping on the concept band-wagon of the Hourglass powders. But you’d think they’d give us a better visual than a dog in beret looking yellow, muddy and slightly blue with the cold as an idea of how these might look on actual HUMAN people who don’t have furry faces!

Jasmine Avatar

These sound totally gimmicky! I think it would have come across better if they didn’t market them as “selfie powders” and just marketed them as finishing powders or complexion perfecting powders.

kohimiruku Avatar

My first thought was–is this some kind of weird, EXTREMELY late response to Hourglass’s Ambient Powders?
And my second thought was, if the bronze shade was replaced with something more interesting, like a rose (similar to that effect people used to get by using pink lighting), then I would actually be interested in it.

Sarah Avatar

Clever marketing and totally Too Faced! Finishing powders are usually not my deal, they melt away way too quickly on my oily skin, but drool! From the few swatches I’ve seen I like that the bronze one lacks any huge glitter particles, one of the reasons I felt Radiant Light didn’t work for me. Hopefully these look fab on darker skin tones.

PS The filters in the little shots with the dog look way ugly, or is it just me??? Lol.

Nicole Avatar

Seems like Too Faced’s version of the Hourglass Ambient lighting powders. Much more affordable though. I get the concept and I could really see these being a hit if they perform well since the Hourglass ambient powders are out of many people’s budget. I am really interested to see how these perform. It’s going to be hard to match the way the ambients are so finely textured. But, on younger skin which I believe is who Too Faced generally markets to, I think that may not matter as much. I’m crossing my fingers for this one. I’m pro Too faced in general. Love the packaging!

Jennifer Avatar

Has anyone with sensitive acne skin tried Too Faced face products? I want to try this but was wondering if that brand is okay for acne skin. I have had problems with other brands breaking me out.

Susan Dowman Nevling Avatar

I have sensitive skin but rarely have pimples as I’m 65. My mainm experience with Too Faced is the primer. I.use the regular one in the pink tube but they have a sensitive one in a white tubes. Shop some where with a 30 day return policy and also request samples, even from the manufacturer. I bet they would help. Try away then with one thing at a time for a week each.

Sarah Avatar

I think a lot of people are not getting that this is purposefully tongue in cheek and kitschy. Lighten up, girls! It’s all in good fun. These are basically Ambient Lighting Powders little teenage sister.

I do wish there were a pink powder like Hourglass has, I always look the best under pink light!

Rachel R. Avatar

I get that, but it still rubs me the wrong way. Not for me, but I won’t judge someone else if they like the packaging. I just hate the “selfie culture.” It’s the product itself that counts in the end, anyway.

stephanie Avatar

and what is wrong with the selfie culture? a bunch of teenagers or young adults who actually like the way they look and like to take photos of themselves and share them with the world when i was a teenager i hated looking or taking photos of myself and i think there is nothing wrong with people who appreciate and love themselves enough to take photos of themselves

Rachel R. Avatar

Sorry, Stephanie, I didn’t mean to offend anyone. Your question is a valid one. I didn’t single out teens and young adults, and I’m sorry if that’s the message I put across. I got bullied as a kid like you wouldn’t believe, and I never want to hurt anyone. Maybe it is a generation gap, as I did not grow up taking selfies.

Thank you for reminding me that not everyone’s motives are the same. I see a lot of narcissism, need to have others validate oneself, low self-esteem, shallowness, selfishness and bullying out there. I might not be noticing enough of the good, and I’ll try to rectify that.

That said, I still dislike the packaging and marketing concept of this. I hope the girls and women (and boys and men) out there don’t think they need a bunch of photoshop, filters, powders, or anything to make themselves appear completely perfect so others will love them. If they just want to enhance what mom & dad gave them, or cover their zits, before sharing with their friends: I don’t blame them. That’s why I wear makeup, after all.

Tigerlily Avatar

I find this exchange and your answer very inspiring, Rachel R. Food for thought about the selfie culture!

This is one of the many reasons I love Temptalia and its community: respectful dialogues, fun comments and caring advice. So refreshing in what often feels like a harsh world.

Nancy T Avatar

Hmmmm…..I do not know what to make of this. Nope, not at all. And yet, I am still eagerly awaiting your swatches and review if or when you get it.

fuji Avatar

It’s a weird concept to me, like those tinted primer for complexion correction use. I know from my personal experience that when i wear purple or green based primer, it showed when I took pictures using flashes. So if these powder will do the same trick as tinted primer, I would definitely pass.

Or, if they just added a layer of translucent powder which diffuse the light like Guerlain’s Meteor, I would love to check it out as an affordable dupe for Guerlain.

Otherwise, I don’t want to look yellow/bronzed/purple in the daylight, no matter how subtle they would be.

April Avatar

Wow at all the comments on here not seeming into this! I like TooFaced products. Saw on Instagram this am. Think she got hers at Sephora in a JC Penny. Tara I think. Haven’t seen her talk about them but they look nice to me! Can’t wait to try!

Rachel R. Avatar

They look like nice color-correcting illuminating powders. But the whole “selfie” thing turns me off. I think the whole narcissistic, atttention-wh*ring, bragging, fishing-for-compliments atmosphere of the constant selfie culture is just sad. People need a better way to build their self esteem. Sorry to rant, I usually just ignore stuff like this and don’t take it seriously. This really got under my skin, for some reason.

Katherine T. Avatar

Uh, I’m not liking the looks of this. $ 36 for 3 really weird-looking powders? Is this suppose to be color correcting? That gold one looks like it could be a glitter bomb or make you look like you’re starring in Gold Finger. Just bizarre….

Dia Avatar

This just looks like the banana/bronze/lavender powders that have been around forever, just with gimmicky marketing. (I am totally smitten with the dog in the beret though.)

breyerchic04 Avatar

They look like a tween version of hourglass powders, a little too glittery, too extreme, and in cheaper packaging.

I’ve been using Benefit Dandelion for years as a brightening powder, and like it’s subtlety. This doesn’t look subtle.

Emily Avatar

These seem like ambient lighting powder dupes. Even the description is similar. I think it’s so funny how everyone’s saying it’s gimmicky when they seem to be a similar product to the hourglass ones.
