Setting with a Glow: Too Faced Candlelight Reviewed

When it comes to setting powders I don't always like the way they look on the skin. I have a few
that I really like and I have tried some that I feel do little other than make my skin look cakey. This little compact caught my eye. At first I thought it was a highlighter, but upon further examination I realized it's a finishing powder.
Too Faced Candlelight Illuminating Powder is a finely milled powder that looks to be a soft champagne color with golden micro shimmer, but when used, is translucent and the shimmer becomes a sort of non glitter glow. I worried when I picked this out that it would be too glittery or shimmery, but no, it just looks so nice and it makes skin look very smooth. I am super pleased with this powder and I'm adding it to my freelance makeup kit. 
I took this picture with a really white/blue light and my skin still looks soft and glowing. I've used this powder for about a week and it makes my makeup last longer and doesn't get cakey when you reapply in the middle of the day. I'm not a fan of sponges with powder, but it works in a pinch.

I hope you liked this little review and that you found it helpful. Tell me, have you ever tried this
powder or would you want to? I love hearing from you guys! Have a nice Wednesday!
