I’ve always been a fan of blush and it’s ability to add a nice healthy glow to your skin as well as accentuate your best features. However, I never really contoured. The whole process of contouring always seemed too time consuming and complex for someone who is always on a run. Finally, I decided to give contouring a chance and invested into the Let It Glow Highlight & Blush Kit. This little package turned out to be one of my favourite recent purchases.
Included in the Kit are a number of deluxe sized Too Faced blush favourites. More specifically, the adorable package includes the Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder in Rosy Glow, Love Flush 16-Hour Blush in Love Hangover, the Snow Bunny Luminous Bronzer and finally the heart-shaped brush.
I’ve heard quite a few complaints about the deluxe sizes of the products. However, I think they are the perfect size especially if you are curious about the colours & the brand and wish to do some testing prior to investing into the full size items. Additionally, the colours are pigmented enough that even one to two sweeps are enough to achieve the desired look. One sweep and people were already noticing the fact that I was wearing the highlighter due to it’s subtle shimmery nature.
In trying out the products included in the kit, I noticed that the colours of the products compliment each other extremely well, layering on the skin pretty seamlessly. The brush is extremely soft and has a very comfortable handle shaped like a heart that makes it one of my favourite additions to my brushes set. Most importantly, the blush is smudge proof which makes it perfect for all day wear. However I do wish that the compacts included mirrors. In contouring, having a mirror on hand is essential and it was unfortunate that neither of the compacts actually had one.
Overall, the best way to use the kit is by taking the following steps:
- Apply the Snow Bunny Luminous Bronzer under the cheekbones
- Sweep the Love Flush 16-Hour Blush onto cheekbones
- Apply the Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder around the brow and cheekbones as well as along the bridge of the nose
After completing all of these steps you should have a nice all day long fresh and flustered look as well as warmer and more well-defined complexion.
In conclusion, I think this package is a perfect way to test out a couple of the Too Faced products you may have been curious about and is also a perfect size to be a stocking stuffer for a starting make up junkie. With its travel size adorable products, this kit is a huge success for me.
