Hello Everyone! I am back with yet another budget friendly highlighter for you guys. It is the essence soo glow cream to powder highlighter in the shade ‘look on the bright side’.Essence is an amazing drugstore brand, which is known for its good quality yet extremely affordable products. It was also my first ever highlighter, as it was the only affordable highlighter that I could find at that time.
The packaging is very compact and cute. It has a round plastic transparent body with a click-on lid. The lid closely perfectly and there is no issue of closing it.
It has a very unique type of formula i.e. “cream to powder” which means that when you touch it in the pan it feels like a cream product but when you swatch it on your hand it turns into a powder which is pretty interesting. When swatched on the back of your hand you can clearly see it has glitter in it, which mostly people do not like but when applied on the cheekbones the glitter does not really show through.
It gives a really nice glow to your cheek. You really can build it up according to your preferences.You do have to blend it out immediately as you apply it because the powder quickly settles into the skin.
It is a really good, budget friendly cream to powder highlight. If you are looking for an affordable highlighter from the drugstore, do give it a try. It is not the most amazing quality but for the price it is pretty darn good.
