The Genius of the TooFaced Diamond Light Highlighter.

I thought I was doing fine in my highlighting stash, already possessing every tone of pink, green, white, and "my color of" golden highlighters. I felt that my highlighting force field would keep me from purchasing too many duplicate colored highlighters this year....although I did want to take a look at the TooFaced Dimond Light Highlighter, ($34 / .42oz), out of curiosity.   I heard it was predominantly green and I couldn't imagine a diamond in a pink box being green.   I knew Jerrod had something special in store for us and couldn't wait to discover the magic.

It took a couple days to find a store that even had a tester out.  I admired the beautiful presentation of the product.  It's in a ring box inside the type of box they put the special ring box in.   Cute and kistchy and it pulls on our inner princesses to want to feel it and gives that special moment of anticipation as you open it and pull out the special ring box.


When I opened the tester that the store had, I could see some pink and some green toned yellow.  And I told the sephora girl it looked like you're not limited to just green or just pink but you can mix combinations of the colors to come up with even more variations of tones.  And then my finger found a blue patch around the back side.  That's when the Diamond Light FIRE took off in my heart.  You can highlight with blue, or pink, or the green/yellow, or violet, or a silvery pink.  It's very interesting the colors you can play with in this one shimmering highlighter.

The one I have is mainly pink.  It has a big blob of pink on top which I was thrilled by.

It has much green/gold as well and some smaller spots of blue mainly around the corners.  I'm going to have to work to pull the blue out.

It's so interesting.  I can swatch it on any given day and depending where my finger placement is, I'll get a different variation of colors.   Here is my basic pink, blue, greenish gold, and the top mixed.

I can mix the pink with more of the gold/green and I get a lightly pink nearly white color.

I just think it's really cool that you can use it for different specific colors.  Or swirl it all together; it's up to you.  When I saw all the colors, it was like a window of highlighting opportunity opened for me and my imagination took me to a new highlighting plane I had never been to before.

On the left in the picture about are two attempts at duo-colored highlights.  The first is blue to pink, and the second is the yellow green to pink.  It's totally FUN WITH COLORS!

This highlighter can be found on the TooFaced website, Sephora and also at Ulta, which is where I found one to purchase.   You can follow TooFaced on TwitterPinterest, FacebookInstagram, and YouTube. 

Keep in mind that your highlighter will vary in percentages of the color mix from mine but it will still be brilliant.  Explore it and have fun with it.  I believe the next picture is what TooFaced wants to tell each of us in this new year.

What do you think?  Does the idea of using different mixes appeal to you?

  1. I saw this in your YouTube video and became fascinating by it! While 34 dollars seems like a steep price, it's like you're getting multiple different highlighters. Can't wait to see what it looks like applied!

    1. Right? I didn't either until I saw it in person and saw all the potential. Plus it is uber smooth, not chalky or lumpy at all.

  13. I have several indie branded highlighters that are mottled colours like this, and I love them! I've been wanting to play with this one but haven't found a tester here and I'm not sure if I want to commit to a purchase.

    1. It's not right to tease like this - start naming names!!!! I'm often hesitant to buy indie until I can actually see it in person.
