Review: Too Faced Diamond Highlighter

Dear readers,

if you follow me on Instagram you have probably already seen my post about buying this gorgeous highlighter. When I first saw this product I knew I had to have it. It looks so gorgeous and the packaging is sooo on point.
After almost a month of using this product I'm ready to give it a review. So keep on reading if you want to know more about the Too Faced Diamond Highlighter.

Too Faced about this highlighter:
' This one-of-a kind highlighter is infused with real crushed diamond powder and light reflecting pearls to create a rainbow diamond fire glow like you've never seen. Light up your complexion for a pure radiance that works on any skin tone. Swirl the pink, blue, and gold shades to create your custom highlighter that can be used anywhere. The liquid to powder formula is hand poured ensuring that no two highlighters will ever look the same--just like a real diamond.

  • Prismatic highlighter infused with real crushed diamond powder and light-reflecting pearls for extra luxe sparkle
  • Artisan-made and hand poured so every highlighter is one-of-a-kind
  • Highlighter mimics the diamond fire glow of a real diamond in its purest form
  • Buildable payoff for a customized highlight
  • Multi-use for eyes, face, and body'

The packaging is one of the reasons I got this highlighter. It's pink and looks like a ring box with the right kind of quote on the inside. The quote says: "It's your time to shine!"
It does look bigger in the pictures than it is in real life. I expected a HUGE highlighter and it was average sized, which was fine.

I have mixed feeling about the highlighter itself. For starters the highlighter on the website looks like a unicorn puked in a container. It's full of bright colour with a lot of shine to it. The picture above is a bit dark but that was the only way I could capture any colour because otherwise it would have looked white. So no swirling pink, blue and gold together to create my own unique highlighter for me. I also don't believe the claim that it's hand poured because of the lack of colours. Also with the amount of colours in the highlighter it would be really hard not to create two similar highlighters.
Besides all this I do like the highlighter. It's bright and shiny and with the right kind of brush it's perfect. I don't feel like this highlighter is buildable by itself, it is when you top it of with other highlighters. Which to me is fine because I don't like buildable highlighters.
The highlighter itself stays on point and bright all day. Only after a 6 hour wear it starts to wear off a bit but that's normal, if you ask me.
I did find it hard to swatch the highlighter with my finger because it wasn't that pigmented but with a brush it's really pigmented. I heard that people also like to use the highlighter wet but I have never tried this. All my photo's are taken with the highlighter dry on only bare skin or foundation and nothing more.

Would I repurchase this highlighter for €37.99? I wanted to say definitely not because it's a LOT of money to me but the packaging is so CUTE! And I'm always on a hunt for a new highlighter. So my answer would be I don't need two of them but if I knew all of this before buying the product I would have gone out on a hunt to find it on sale.

(I did this with the Kat von D Highlighters and it was definitely worth it.)
