Blinded by the Light

Too Faced Blinded By the Light Love Light Prismatic Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a very light beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, pearly finish. I could just barely detect a subtle sheen on the skin when I applied this, as it was quite sheer and did not build as I tried to layer it–it just seemed to add bits of sparkle that did not stay well on the skin (lots of migration over time). The texture was smooth, firm but did not seem like it was going to be problematic, and it definitely didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture! What I could see of the highlighter seemed to last for seven hours no me.

The formula was described as having “gorgeous color payoff” that will yield a “mesmerizing metallic shine.” The powder was smooth, firmer (you’ll want to use a denser brush for picking up color), and it was quite blendable on the skin, but a lot of the product didn’t seem to actually adhere that well to the skin, because despite seeing product on my brush, the formula translated to something much sheerer and more subdued. The powder did seem to get softer and easier to use (with more traditional highlighting brushes) after a few uses. In reality, the formula was less “metallic shine” and more moderate sheen. This is the type of texture that can often be used with a dampened brush, which helps with improving coverage and increasing the reflectiveness of the finish–though I did not see Too Faced mention it specifically about theirs.

I think this product is going to work best for someone who wants a subtle to moderate sheen, doesn’t mind fine sparkle, and likes sheerer products.

Ray of Light

Too Faced Ray of Light Love Light Prismatic Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a soft, sparkling sheen. This shade had medium, somewhat buildable coverage, but the shimmer did not bind as well with the base powder, so I felt like the more I blended out the product on my cheeks, the less apparent the sheen was. The powder felt smooth across the surface, but it was firmer and denser overall; I preferred using a blush brush (greater density, on average) compared to a tapered highlighting brush for application. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

You Light Up My Life

Too Faced You Light Up My Life Love Light Prismatic Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. This shade was the most pigmented and had the strongest sheen out of three released. The texture seemed softer and while still dense, more forgiving and easier to get product onto my brush. It was easy to blend out on the skin, though it seemed to have more shimmer than sheen, and more shimmer than real color to it, so it ended up being less intense in practice than it appeared in the pan. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

Hahahhahahaha! I called to try to cancel my order but got their voice mail and left a message cancelling it. Then, I messaged them also cancelling my order. When I logged in, my order wasn’t cancelled. so again, I called to cancel my order since it had not even processed. The Rep refused to cancel my order. I asked for a supervisor who ended up being rude, refused to cancel my order, and told me I could PAY to return it “whenever it shipped”. so I called my Mastercard (Ulta) and they verified that TF hadn’t even placed a hold (tried to charge) my card yet. They closed my credit card and re-issued a new one so TF couldn’t bill me! As of this morning, almost a week later, my order is still not showing as cancelled (or processed)!

You know you’ve REALLY angered a customer when they’ll call their CC company, have them reissue a card (with a new number), just so they can move on.

Makes me glad I just went with my instinct and canceled right away, lol!

Hahahaha and it was my favorite and most used card too! I almost think the worst part of the whole story is that they STILL haven’t realized it yet since they still haven’t done anything with my order! Honestly I don’t know how anyone can run a business like that.

I figured after Sweet Peach, they’d have their ecomm sorted, but apparently not… For some reason, I tend to equate Tarte and Too Faced in my brain, and my Tarte order (during their recent sale) shipped the next day – I didn’t expedite that order, just regular ground. Tatcha shipped same day of my order. Such a contrast!

So bizarre when there are so many retailers that run their own ecomm to screw it up so royally like Too Faced has.

Wow! I’m sorry for your difficult and probably time consuming experience.

I just wanted to say that it’s great to see consumers who will stand up for them self and not allow major companies walk all over them. I am like that too but I really don’t see many people who will be a strong self advocate and not give companies power.

One of my favorite lines is when I ask for a manager/supervisor on the phone, or in the store. Then they say they are the supervisor, I ask to talk to their supervisor, and they seem to not have one and say there is no one higher to talk to or something along those lines. This happened to me once in Verizon, so I reached out and gently grabbed her hand and shook it, and in an exaggerated shocked look/gesture said, wow I didn’t realize I was on the presence of the CEO of Verizon wireless, wow. Please tell me what brings a successful woman such as yourself to our town, and wow this town?

Of course they get a tad mad and say they don’t own the company, in which I say oh you don’t. Well if you are not the CEO then you have a boss, I want to talk to that person.

Customer service has just gotten worse and worse it seems over the years. The makeup and beauty industry though is not one you want to slip up on. It’s a huge market, with huge brand loyalty potential, customers who will buy your product even when they don’t have the money too, huge competition that will take your business in a heart beat, and more importanantly it’s a group of consumers who have communicate with each other extensively. One bad review by the right youtuber and your new product you just released is going to flip, hearing about the customer service issues with this brand and a couple others this year…I won’t buy from them and risk the frustration. Nothing happened to me, to my family, my ‘real life’ friends, yet I have heard multiple stories similar to yours! This is an industry where word of mouth will make or break you, and competition won’t wait for you to get your crap together.

They spend so much time in marketing and advertising, in this industry…customer service is marketing and advertising, and their actions reflect whether that marketing message is positive or negative.

Good for you for standing your ground and showing them how you expect to be treated and not giving them the power to make you the victim of their bad actions.

Man, I was kind of excited about that rose gold one, but these ultimately seem lackluster at best. That’s disappointing.

There are a lot of other highlighters on the market that I think are better (even if you prefer a subtle highlight!).

Yes I was drooling over that one too! I was kind of bummed it sold out so fast (ditto with my decision skills), but I’m somehow comforted. The packaging makes me want to compromise.

I’m glad that You Light Up My Life is the best performing one out of the bunch because I am looking for a darker gold highlighter that would pair well with Exhibit A and the packaging of this one is so cute! If only Too Faced’s quality control team were as good as their packaging design team, they would have truly amazing products. I think I’ll still have to swatch this in store because some of the drawbacks to this formula brought up in the review are ones that I’m not down with.

I wanted the white one, but I was waiting for your review because the ones on youtube were mixed. I’m so glad I did, these look like a total waste of money. Hard pass.

I was considering getting Blinded by the Light or Ray of Light (look at that packaging!!!) and I’m glad I waited, Blinded by the Light especially looks pretty disappointing

I don’t think that the Cheek Pops have that type of formula, personally, but these are similar to MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes.

Thanks, Christine! I was tempted to get these after seeing the super cute packaging and hearing good things about them. But I’m gonna pass and save up for the gorgeous Diorskin Luminizer powders.

I expected these to be so much more pigmented and almost metallic. I’ll swatch these, but I’m so sure I’ll skip them.

Toofaced well known for some of the most creative fun packaging, but as of late I feel that more is going into the packaging and less on the product so I’m becoming hesitant to spend the money . Glad I can come here and check reviews.

What’s up with Too Faced? The quality of these is comparable to children’s makeup. I’m myself a fan of subtle highlighters, but there’s indeed a difference between subtle and undetectable. These (except for the gold one) don’t add any glow whatsoever! Like, plain powder :\ and for $30…. bah

The first one was the most subtle on my skin tone but definitely saw something in person – none of them were undetectable to my eye.

That review for Blinded By The Light is so disappointing!!I really liked the look of it but there are too many great highlighters being released to waste money on this one.I had heard these were on the sheer side of the highlighter spectrum on Utube.Too Faced saying they produce a mesmerizing metallic shine is really not ok.Especially with a name like Blinded By The Light!

Oh man, I don’t know why I like seeing products bomb so much, but I really do love it when a bad one shows up.
πŸ˜€
But what’s most interesting is that the two other shades seemed to perform pretty well! That baffles me, because it means they can create a good product…and Blinded by the Light is not a unique shade…every other company can do it well!

Wow, Too Faced is really bumming me out. At this point they seem to be banking on the cuteness factor to sell products rather than quality. I wonder if the EstΓ©e Lauder acquisition has anything to do with their lackluster releases.

Too Faced disappoints me yet again. These look so pretty in the packaging, but only the darkest one (that I can’t wear) looks like what I was expecting.

*I ordered the gold one directly from Too Faced right after their launch, and as of today, my order is still in processing, still hasn’t shipped. In the meantime, Sephora customers already have it both online and in-store. I called Too Faced, the CSR said it was too late to cancel my order, as it was already “at the warehouse” but didn’t know when they would ship. Another reader also had issues cancelling her order. This will be the last time I ever order directly from Too Faced!!
*I swatched these in store, and my swatches look very different, so could be batch differences. The gold one swatched the best in terms of pigment and shimmer, but it looked very peachy orange, although it did apply more gold on my yellow toned skin, the rose gold was pretty but very subtle in both pigment and barely any shimmer, and the white one was meh, kind of a frosty white with slight pink undertone

Well, it looks like Too Faced is too busy shipping all their product to Sephora, because Sephora has it both in store and online, so anybody who ordered directly from Too Faced is completely screwed !!! The order is placed “on hold” (meaning we are out of stock) or in processing (we’ll get to you maybe later, hopefully before we run out of stock). A very shoddy way to treat customers. And they are absolutely refusing to cancel orders. They said I can’t cancel my order, because they will ship it out eventually (but don’t know when), and if I don’t like the highlighter, I can return it to them, but I will have to pay for return shipping. WTF???? I will be cancelling my credit card so they can’t charge it.

Haven’t seen the palette yet in stores or online by me. Bummer that you weren’t able to cancel through Too Faced, though πŸ™ I’m hoping to get it from Ulta since I think they’re supposed to launch it before Sephora.

You Light Up My Life is nice looking. But when I spotted these in JCP’s Sephora, I thought for sure that they would swatch ultra metallic, but looking at them in action? N Bope. I did have high hopes for these, especially with how beautiful the pans look. I mean, diamond cut hearts! Oh well, such is Too Faced of late, eh?

Wow, those are something… I will not be buying! There are HEAPS of really good highlighters out there and to put out 3 fairly unimaginative, standard colours with that sort of payoff and performance is not very impressive πŸ™

I thought these would be quite good, well B and B+ isn’t bad, I guess it’s the hype, I think I’ve seen these for months and what little I have read stated they were good. I’m actually quite over Too Faced right now, I still quite like their lipsticks but all of the hearts are getting to me, so cutesy.

To be honest Christine, they all pretty much look the same on you, so I guess it would be what shade a buyer would prefer.
But what is stunning is your beautiful eye look – those shades are gorgeous on you.

I received “Ray of Light” knowing I’ll probably never wear it. It’s pretty but I am quickly becoming disgusted with my buying habits.

You light up my life was my pick even before your review, but after YEOUCH! I’m very glad I didn’t order any of these!!!

Pretty darn disappointing imo!

I have You Light Up My Life and I love it! I was thinking about ordering the other two, but I’m so glad I saw your review, Christine! You saved my wallet! Glad I picked the winner out of the lot, it has been my go-to highlighter at the moment.

I use to love Too Faced but the past couple of years they seem to be more focused on gimmicky cute packaging (which I love) than on creating good products. I love their aesthetics and packaging but it needs to come along with high quality products.

How disappointing… but I can see a lot of people buying them because of the cute design. This is so typical Too Faced right now: Cute packaging and mediocre products.

Will you be doing a review of their new Summer 2017 Natural Love palette as well? It’s so gorgeous, I hope it doesn’t fall as flat as these, I don’t want to get it until you grade it!

I wanted to love these. It’s a shame the performance is so poor, because the packaging is calling to my inner sailor scout. Thank you so much for your review–although I adore the packaging, these will unfortunately be a pass for me.

Oh my god I literally commented the same thing just now without looking through the comments. It honestly reminds me of salior moon hahaha!!

i heard that the rose gold shade Ray of Light is an exact formula repackaging of the Too Faced Sweet Pach Glow Kit highlight shade. could anyone swatch test them/ingredient match them and confirm my suspicions?

It’s listed already on the Dupe List – we only show the top 10, but there are often 20+ dupes listed: http://www.temptalia.com/makeup-dupe-list/too-faced-love-light-prismatic-highlighter/ray-of-light/

You can compare ingredient lists on Too Faced’s website – the Sweet Peach Glow palette is very hard to read as it was metallic, and I don’t keep boxes, so I can’t manipulate it in person to try and read it myself.

I’m curious about whether these were formulated to perform better as “hand swatches” in store, after all the oils of people’s fingers have absorbed (ew?). Because I swatched them in Sephora before seeing your review and they swatched nicely. I haven’t bought any of them but they seemed a lot like the NARS dual intensity highlighter formula to me. So maybe they’re pandering to the impulse in-store buy, instead of formulating for actual wear? It’s weird how deceptive in-store swatches can be. πŸ™

This type of formula (like the NARS Dual Intensity) is a bit firmer and denser, and in a way, typically “drier” to the touch, that finding the right brush is often an important part of using them (compared to swatching with fingers – the pressure used with fingers is often much greater than brushes!).

That is very true!
I know there’s only one brush in my collection I use for my NARS dual intensity duo, and it’s a natural hair brush I happened to have from a long time ago. A lot of people don’t have brushes like that since synthetics are much more prevalent these days and natural haired brushes tend to be expensive (and not CF, if that’s important to the buyer)

The entire compact (including the product engraving inside) remind me of SAILORRRR MOOOONNNNN.

And that’s about the only positive thing I can say right now! haha

Everyone’s jumping on the highlighter train, and while I love the imprint on the powder, TF’s version looks startlingly bad. Way overhyped in my opinion!

I almost wonder if you got a different batch than me. The Blinded by Light that I have is crazy pigmented and is really easy to go overboard with rather quickly. I don’t detect any micro glitter in mine at all either. So so weird!
