I think I have reached the peak of my highlighting game when I bought my Laura Mercier Matt highlighter. It was everything I wanted in a highlighter minus the price tag. So when I found out from a facebook beauty page that the local Essence Cosmetics counter stocked up on the Essence Pure Nude Highlighter, I ran and prayed to the makeup gods. Mind you, it was out of stock for 6 freaking months!
About the product: reflection of light! the spotlight is on the highlighter in the popular NUDE family. The soft, baked powder texture with a slightly marbled effect brings a subtle shimmer to the face. Ideal for a healthy look with a glow!
I think Essence’s website is high lol.
Many people over the internet have mentioned that looks underwhelming on the pan BUT I really think even on the pan it is stunning.
I am sorry my swatch is blurred. I just hope that you can see the color very well. From the arm swatch, the pure nude highlighter shows off as a deeper peachy golden tone with fine shimmer. while it is too early to say whether this will replace my Laura Mercier as my favorite highlighter, I love love love the price tag on this one!
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter is available at SM department store and Watson’s drugstore. It retails for P379.00.
