Worth the Hype Wednesday – about-face beauty Light Lock Highlight Fluid in Fight or Flight

September 7, 2022

So many celebrities have started beauty brands as of late, but, as you may know, they’re not all created equally. One of the brands that has gotten the most positive praise from makeup artists, influencers, and consumers alike is @aboutfacebeauty, so I wanted to test it out for myself! I had a very positive experience with the first product of theirs that I tested out (, so I had high hopes for the @aboutfacebeauty Light Lock Highlight Fluid in Fight or Flight ($18 for .5 ounces –!

What it claims:
🔘 A powerhouse liquid highlighter that serves a high pigment load and out-of-this-world glow
🔘 This molten, crystalline highlighting fluid delivers an intense amount of pearls for max illumination
🔘 Lightweight buildable, long-wearing and water-resistant
🔘 Vegan
🔘 Cleanly-formulated without gluten, phthalates, parabens or synthetic fragrances

My verdict?
In all honesty, when I first tried this, I was unimpressed – which confused me since the reviews were glowing (pun intended)! My first attempts were applying the product directly onto the high points of my cheeks and blending it out with a brush. The problem was, the product dried down so quickly that I wasn’t able to blend it out. Then, I tried applying it the same way, but using a damp sponge to blend it out instead. While that was more successful, it wasn’t the blown out blend I had hoped for. Finally, I tried applying it directly to the sponge and then blending it onto my face and voilà! That worked like a charm! The reflectivity is stunning and it lasts all day! I have also played around with mixing it into my foundation and that makes my skin look glowy and gorgeous! For how little you need to make a massive impact, I would say this is definitely worth the price. I can’t see ever running out of it, but, if I do, I will absolutely repurchase!
