When I saw that Essence was releasing a brand new highlighter I just had to have it. I have really been in love with Essence products and found that their products rarely disappoint.
I got the shade 10 Look on the bright side which looks like a cream or off white shade.
What Essence says “glamour glow! The highlighter gives your complexion a beautiful shimmer. its creamy texture turns into a velvety, powdery formula upon application. easy to apply with your fingers, it sets gorgeous accents on your cheekbones, underneath the brows or in the inner corners of your eyes.”
Now to share what I think.. The packaging is super cute, I love how compact it is and it’s so easy to pop in to my makeup bag, I am also a bit bumped out with the small pan but then again it’s just so darn cute. I love how creamy the texture is and application us just such a breeze, it’s so easy to go over board and apply too much so be careful if you have a heavy hand.
What really gets me going is the bright glow it gives your skin and it has this gorgeous gold lights which isn’t over powering at all. This is my first time using a highlighter so I can’t really compare it to other products on the market. This does retail for R55 at any Dischem , Spree and Clicks stores.
The only problem I have with this highlighter is that there’s only two shades to choose from the 10 Look on the bright side (which I have ) and 20 Bright up your life also I find that it doesn’t last all day but maybe that’s just me expecting too much it does last a solid 5 or more hours which is great.
Have you tried the Essence Soo Glow Cream highlighter? If so, I would love to hear your thoughts.
