I can understand why some of you would be disappointed with the Essence Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette ($5.99). I was in the same boat glamour babes, but after giving it a couple of tries, this palette grew on me.For those of you who absolutely love to shine and sparkle bright like a diamond. I do not recommend this palette. You will end up returning it. These trio of highlighters have subdued light reflecting pigments, which create a very, very soft glow, that gives skin a natural, radiant appearance. I don’t mind having this look at all. I have been favoring it more lately because of the Light Up Your Face Palette ($5.99). I guess you can call it Spring fever, lol.
The finely milled, buttery smooth formula is lightweight, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, has sheer pigmentation, and is somewhat buildable, but not by much. As sheer as the shades (nude, rose, golden beige) are, I think they’re quite beautiful and it truly shows on the complexion. I prefer to use these individually to accentuate features. I didn’t really see much natural dimension when blending all three together. It still gave off an individual effect since these are so sheer. You can however, use other highlighters (liquid, powder, or stick) on top of this one to create better depth. The finish of these highlighters are in no way, shape or form chunky or glittery. So don’t listen to the review rumors. Obviously, they don’t know highlighters. Yep, I went there. Big whoop, you wanna fight about it? (Family Guy humor) lol.
I was actually impressed by the color payoff. Usually highlighters this faint (from my experience) don’t stick around for long, they fade quickly. It’s as if I never put on highlighter. Not this one though. I got six hours of gorgeous glow and tons of compliments. Thanks boys and girls! It’s all thanks to Essence.
