Too Faced Diamond Fire Highlighter (Review & Swatches)

Too Faced Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter in Diamond Fire

Crashing the Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette launch was this beauty of a highlighter – the Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter!

With a cute, old-timey box and the name Diamond Fire, it’s hard not to be super into this beauty of a product!

The product itself boasts shades of blue, pink and yellow (as described by the brand), but I personally see a lot of green in my own product. I believe each compact will have different swirls of colour, so you may get one with more pink or more blue. Fundamentally, you can’t really be too precise with your brush if you want more blue or pink since those streaks of colour just aren’t big enough.

It also comes with a whopping 12 grams of product, so I assuree you you’re not going to be running out of this one any time soon!

All swatched together, my Diamond Fire comes out with a very strong green tinge. The reflection is jawdropping, and you may find you need to lay off on a heavy application until you’re used to the kind of payoff it delivers! No complaints here though – I like my highlighters to be cause almost mirrorball reflections!

On me, the green-tinge is there, but it’s transformed a bit more into a yellow-green hue. I love unique highlighter shades, so for me this is a glorious addition to my highlighter collection.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for something not only gorgeous in the pan, but also something a little bit more unique (because let’s face it – there’s plenty of gold or champagne coloured highlighters on the market), the Too Faced Diamond Fire highlighter is for you. Aside from excellent longevity (my highlighter is still beaming after an eight hour work day), there is something to be said for the beauty of this product. Seeing a gorgeously swirled marble product that delivers a unique sheen to my cheekbones? I’m alllll in!

The Too Faced Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter in Diamond Fire can be purchased on sephora.ca for $42 CAD and on sephora.com for $34 USD.

Too Faced Melted Gold Liquified Lip Gloss (Review & Swatches)

Too Faced Melted Gold Liquified Lip Gloss

Alongside the amazing release of the Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette, we saw a single item come out that I hadn’t been expecting: a Melted Gold Lip Gloss!

I had been so amped for the release of the Chocolate Gold palette (see my collection try on video here) that I hadn’t stopped to consider they’d make it a whole collection! So when I saw this product previewed shortly before the collection launch I was astonished – it was one of those items that kinda takes your breath away just because it was so unexpected.

Following along in their Melted Matte and Melted Latex packaging, the Melted Gold Lip Gloss is more similar to the Melted Latex in terms of application. The product, however, does not have that latex-like glossy sheen, but more of a pigmented gloss shot through with glitter shimmer.

I know when I say “gloss”, I tend to think of something a bit more translucent. And while there is that transparent edge to the product, you can definitely see from the swatch above that this is an *incredibly* pigmented product. More than I would ever expect any gloss to be! Also, don’t let my comment about glitter in the product scare you – it’s neither chunky nor going to fall off your lips. It’s more a fine particle shimmer… except there’s a ton of it suspended within the base of the gloss.

Over top of my naked lips I feel like the colour is STUNNING. I had no concept that a gold lip gloss would be something that I was missing in my collection as a standalone product. I had thought that I would only wear this on top of a red lipstick to give it some oomph – not wear it by itself! But now that I’ve seen what I look like with gold gloss on… well… I’m enamoured!

The close up shot above should give you an idea as to the texture of the product. It’s not extremely sticky, although – let’s face it – glosses are inherently sticky, and to say otherwise is just flat out wrong as they have to have some tack to them in order to stay on your lips. The gold glitter particles are quite tiny, but you can see them everywhere!

Lasting power is as you would expect for a gloss: 2-3 hours before you’ll need to reapply it provided you’re not eating or drinking, which will, of course, cause product transfer.

Final Thoughts

I had no idea I needed a gold lip gloss in my life aside from extremely temporary use, but now that I’ve got one I’m in love! This might be the sort of thing you pick up for special occasions, or for a unique makeup look, but you may also want to give it a shot just to see how it looks of yourself. As I said above, I wasn’t expecting this to look so nice and, frankly, almost natural on me. I think it’s one of the more fun products I’ve tried of late!

The Too Faced Melted Gold Liquified Lip Gloss can be purchased on sephora.ca for $25 CAD and on sephora.com for $21 USD.

Swatch Sunday: Too Faced Clover

Too Faced - Clover

I was soooo excited for the Too Faced Clover palette launch! And then suddenly less excited when I thought it was only a TooFaced.com exclusive item (shipping to Canada, including customs, is kinda pricey on their web site), but I was able to ship it to my in-laws in Wisconsin and picked it up over the holidays!

Of course, I’ve since discovered that the Clover palette is now also available at Ulta, which should make it a little more accessible to people (for us Canadians, it’s worth repeating – Ulta ships to Canada now too!).

To celebrate the launch of the Clover palette, the company donated $250,000 to the Best Friends Animal Society which is a national (USA, I presume) no-kill sanctuary for animals.
