Essence Soo Glow Cream To Powder Highlighter: Review +Swatches


Hi lovelies

After such a long delay I am here to review essence soo glow cream to powder highlighter. As highlighters are the product every girl talks about now a days and essence is one of the drugstore brand which has highly affordable yet quality products.

This highlighter comes in two shades one is 10 ( look on the bright side) and other is 20 ( bright up your life). I will review shade 20 ( bright up your life). The shade 10 is a dull gold undertone and the shade 20 is a pearly pink undertone.

Company Claims

Cream to powder highlighter with shimmering effects for a beautiful glowing complexion.Easy to apply and blend it with fingers for a nice powdery finish on the cheekbones.

This highlighter comes in a clear round compact little pan which can be smoothly open and shut with a click. Font is in greyish black sort of color mentioning brand name and highlighter details.

What I Experience

This highlighter is a cream to powder which means it is creamy when you touch in a pan and becomes powder when you apply it. I have an oily skin so I do not appreciate cream products usually but this is something different. The highlighter glides on skin smoothly but you have to blend it immediately as it dries out fast. I apply this with my ring finger as it gives the best result. The pigmentation is not so good but it can be build-able. It gives the very sheer natural glow to your skin immediately. It gives the pearly glow to the skin. This is amazing for a natural everyday look. I use it at day time which describes that it gives you the very natural settle glow without giving you the disco ball look hahahaha. If you have an oily skin like mine so do not apply it on all highlighting areas of face because it will give you more oily sweaty look. I just apply highlighter on high points of cheeks, bridge of nose and very little on cupid bow. I do not find any highlighter yet with such an affordable price tag. It stays on skin for almost 4 to 5 hours in summers.
