I consider highlighter to be one of my ‘basic’ products, as I’ve mentioned a million times. As in, I’ll do a coat of mascara, some concealer, and highlighter if I’m just running to the shops for some emergency jaffa cakes (yes, that is a real thing).
However, being super pale means that I find it really difficult to find a highlighter that…well, highlights. Besides which, I’m a sucker for sparkle, so I tend to go for the most obnoxious glittery ones I can find.
I’d been umm-ing and ahh-ing over the Too Faced Candlelight Glow Rosey Glow online for about 2 weeks when I finally came across it in a Sephora a few months ago, and was instantly captivated as I swatched it on my hand.
As you can (hopefully!) see in the above pictures, the Candlelight palette is a duo, and comes with a frosted champagne shade, as well as a rosy pink shade. I always opt to swirl my brush around the palette to get a bit of a warmer glow, but the champagne shade works really well as an eyebrow highlighter on its own, too.
The formula is creamy, so easily blendable, but also has some serious staying power – I never reapply, and stay sparkly all day. A word to the wise, though: it’s not a subtle option, in the slightest, so if understated contouring is your kind of thing, Candlelight Glow might not be for you.
If you are a glitter-fiend/wannabe mermaid, however, go grab it, now! I’ve had my palette in my every day make up bag for nearly a year and it’s only just hit pan, so you won’t be sorry, despite the price tag.
Too Faced Candle Light Glow Rosey Glow has an RRP of £25, and is available from Selfridges, here.
