{Review} Essence Cosmetics Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette


Essence Cosmetics launched some really awesome looking products for their Spring / Summer 2016 beauty releases and one of these products are their brand new “Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette”  which is a highlighter trio palette.

What girl doesn’t love that luminous glow,  I can’t help myself when it comes to highlighters and naturally this one really caught my eye.  Thankfully Essence Cosmetics South Africa sent this over in their latest pr package and yes I have already dipped my face in this glowing palette.

The three shades are simply gorgeous the first is more of a matte highlighter which I had no idea was a thing.  The second shade is a pinkish highlighter and the third a golden, brown highlighter. I have to say ever since I got this palette I have been making use of it! The shades are gorgeous and versatile you could definitely use the matte brown shade as a bronzer.  These are so pigmented and they wear quite well, I have used Essence highlighters before and have loved them especially my now damaged Merry Berry highlighter which formed part of their Christmas collection last year and it’s still going strong besides the packaging which is my fault it fell out of my hands so many times but I refuse to part with it.

This palette is definitely worth picking up if you are looking for a great budget friendly palette retailing at R76. 95 you will be able to get your hands on these at Dischem, Clicks, Takealot and selected Pick ‘n Pay stores.

    This looks like such a gorgoeus palette. Nothing beats adding in that healthy glow, stunning!


  • This looks like a great product for such a cheap price, I have a love/hate relationship with Essence as I love them because their products are very affordable and great but at the same time some can be a bit deceiving… this one looks fab though! x

    Essence is a brand that I don’t think has yet launched in the UK but I can get it back at home in Swizterland, so I think I’m going to have to try and pick up a couple of their bits! this looks beautiful, very glowy and the pigmentation is amazing! xx


  • I definitely love highlighters too!! I haven’t tried anything from Essence, but have heard good things! Definitely need to try out this palette 🙂
