Highlighters are a big love of mine. And when the opportunity came for me to try the new Essence highlighter palette, I accepted it with both hands! And here it is,
Essence Go for the glow highlighter palette 02 THE WARMS
The packaging is a sturdy carton with a magnet – a big plus. I don’t have a feeling it would be breakable. There is a mini mirror on the inside for a quick retouch on the way. And the colour of the palette, coopery and if you look under a right angle, there is a rainbow there too. WON-DER-FUL!
There are three highlighters in the palette. All three are more cremy, easy to apply, but a bit harder to blend. They leave quite a shine on your skin and they do transfer. But staying power is good, they all last all day on me. During the day they do fade a bit but are still visible in the evening.
And even though the palette is called The warms, I feel the tones are more suitable for cooler skins. From left to right:
golden brown highlighter, the most pigmented of the three and also the most wearable of the bunch. I actually adore using it and ever since I’ve started using it, I use it constantly.
purple pinkish highlighter with blue shine. Unfortunatelly there is too much of blue in there for it to be wearable, ti just doesn’t look good and natural on me.
pale pink highlighter, the least pigmented of them. It is wearable, since it is very gentle.
If you like noticeable, interesting a bit different highlighters, I totally recommend you this palette.
There is also another palette, 01 The Cools, that also looks interesting and I will try it for sure some day.
And you, do you love highlighters or do you avoid them?
