Each one of us loves a healthy glowing skin but not all of us are bestowed with one unfortunately. This is where highlighter comes in and saves the day.. Godsend!
So, Today we’re going to be talking about an Essence highlighter which is a part of their “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” collection. Here’s what it looks like;
First of all, The packaging. I really like the beautiful, sleek and transparent packaging. It looks girly and doesn’t feel cheap or low quality.
The amount of product you get in here is 0.21 oz (6 grams). And the shade is called “Lady’s Night”. The color of this highlight is icy pink.
Now on to the highlight. I don’t wanna say this people but honestly, it is very disappointing. I’ve been trying to make it work for over a month now but I’ve given up.
Why am I saying this? Because there’s hardly any pigmentation in this product. It just doesn’t wanna show up. It’s not even subtle after literally digging my brush (a denser one) in the pan. And if you try to build it up the only thing that shows up is tiny glitter specs. And who wants that? (At least I don’t). A highlight should make you glow and not look like you sprayed shimmer on your cheek bones. Here is a swatch;
And please bear in mind that this is a finger swatch.
Also, the texture of this is not smooth. The powder feels soft but doesn’t translate smoothly on the skin.
Seriously, I hate saying bad things about a product that is extremely affordable. It costed me around 13 Dirhams in U.A.E.
Would I recommend this to a friend? I’m sure you can tell that my answer is NO.
This is it for this post guys.
See you in the next one.
Till then, Take care. Xx
