I'm a sucker for highlighters. No, not the kind you write with in neon yellow, but the kind you carefully place on areas of your face that you want to... well, highlight! After finding Dior's Amber Diamond, I'm not sure what compelled me to purchase this one from Too Faced. I walked by a display of them at Macy's, and they immediately caught my attention.





I think the reason why I love this Candlelight Glow is because it has that same silky texture of Amber Diamond. It provides just enough of a sheen to highlight the tops of my cheekbones ever so softly. When the light catches its tiny shimmer particles (not glitter), it really smooths the appearance of your skin. I wish I had swatches for you, but I just couldn't capture its beauty no matter what lighting or camera setting I tried. One side of the powder is a white gold, the other a golden pink that picks up different colors, almost like an aurora borealis crystal. When swirled together, the two sides blend beautifully into a warm golden sheen. It's very, very flattering and pretty. I think it would work quite well on most skin tones.

If you happen upon Candlelight Glow, I highly suggest swatching it for yourself! Dior is still my number one, but this comes in a close second.


Reminder: My Stella & Dot online trunk show is still happening here

  1. I absolutely love the packaging. So girly girly! I love highlighters myself. I never tried amber diamond, but I have heard great things about it. I will be checking out the two faced highlighter next time I'm in Macy's. Great blog by the way. Thank you for the kind comment you left on my blog in regards to my new beauty consulting business. I appreciate it.

  5. Benefit High Beam is my favorite!! I use it on my eyebrow bone, top of my cheeks, and inner corner of my eyes. It works exceptionally well in photos. Check it out on me I'm wearing it in all of my blog pictures.

  13. I don't know how I haven't checked this out yet! I have the Too Faced Candlelight and I'm obsessed with it. I use it for a broader highlight than I would a cream or something as pigmented as NARS Albatross and it's better for every day highlighting. Definitely adding this to my makeup shopping list.
