Sweetheart Beads are clearly adorable to look at, but as you can tell from the swatch not much happens (you really need to focus to see the swatch to the left and you can’t even see the one on the right because it’s blended out). I think because of the beads that were darker I expected a bit more color… but this didn’t show up at all on my skin tone (MAC NW20-25, neutral). On the plus side, I didn’t find it to be overly glittery.
Color is said to be buildable, but I do disagree with that. I layered like crazy and it just emphasized my pores. As a “setting powder” it just didn’t work at all. As a highlighter it gave a very, very faint glow but not enough to warrant the price tag.
I think if you’re very, very fair that you will love this. I’m sad because the heart beads are too cute and I can’t stop staring at them. Hopefully Too Faced will release a similar product geared towards bronzing, or perhaps a blush for those with darker tones.
