Unicorn Dreams

Too Faced Unicorn Dreams Unicorn Highlighting Stick ($28.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a light pink with subtle, warm undertones and much warmer, peachy gold pearl. It had a soft, natural sheen on my skin and a bit of color. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was somewhat buildable to medium coverage.

The texture was thin with light slip and would start to lift up base products if I attempted to build it up with more than two layers. With just one layer, it blended out fairly well but wasn’t the best cream highlighter I’ve used when I patted it onto my cheek bones with my fingertip. The texture was lightly tacky initially but seemed to dry down and stay in place for a good seven and a half hours on me.

Yes, it did have to be said. And I am glad I am not the one to say it for once.

One thing I appreciate about this (and a few select other beauty blogs) is that honesty is always accepted— and published. Recently, when I offered critical comments on two different products on two different sites, neither of the two sites would publish the comment, even though both comments were well articulated and in no way mean-spirited. On this site, and a few others, people are entitled to their opinions and it’s not a matter of characterizing folks as “haters” because they critique a product or its packaging. One phrase typically used is, “haters gonna hate.” Just because someone has a different opinion on a beauty product or its packaging does not make them a “hater.”

Wish I could give this 18 thumbs up: “haters,” as far as I’ve been able to tell, are apparently people who don’t immediately think that everything and everyone, everywhere, are exactly perfect just the way they are. I genuinely don’t understand the subculture that believes all criticism is unwarranted, unhelpful, or even hostile (no matter how it’s phrased). I’ve decided that it’s on the same level as trolling, just on the opposite side of the spectrum (yea, balance?). Would love to kick the trolls and “haters gonna hate” people into an alternate reality and let them battle for idealogical domination while the rest of us go on having normal, reasonable conversations.

That’s an interesting insight. The other thing about it is that the attitude you describe just eliminates any interest in sorting things out. I’ve noticed that often people in the beauty world are very interested in thinking things through and discussing the nuances. That’s an admirable trait applicable in so many life areas. And when you just dismiss things outright, you miss an opportunity to learn something. I learn a ton from hearing people’s different responses and I love it.

Suppressing criticism or negative reviews makes seems childish. Excluding criticism: many things might cause discomfort, it’s not feasible or advisable to avoid every single possible offender. If confronting difficult matters helps us grow as people, avoiding them is only holding us back.

The product looks silly to me and I’m not in the target demographic for the collection (or the brand), but I keep coming back to stare at the swatches. So pretty. I think it’s closer to Jouer Rose Gold than Rose Quartz, dupe-wise.

In the tube it reminds me strongly of Yacht Lyfe, but it swatches a whole heck of a lot more highlighter-y.
