We all know that the drugstore has a lot of hidden gems. And today I wanna share my favorite hidden gem, the Essence Pure Nude Highlighter.
This product is not new. Everyone just recently started raving about it but it’s been out for years. I’ve been using it for the past two years and I have no idea why I’ve never featured it before. But I will today because this product deserves to be featured on every beauty blog around the world.
This is one of my top 3 highlighters because of its unique formula. It’s baked so the powder is very buttery and smooth to the touch. It blends flawlessly into the skin, making it look like a cream highlight but without the slip ‘n slide that creamy highlighters are known for. Even though this is a powder product it isn’t very powdery and when I go in with my brush I get no kickback.
This is not a super intense and blinding highlighter. It’s a lot more subtle but it’s not a natural looking highlighter either. It’s the perfect in-between. It is really easy to build up and it never looks like I overdid it. This is truly the perfect highlighter!
The one thing I don’t love about this product is the shade range. I’ve heard people mention that there are a few shades of it but from what I’ve seen online and in stores this is the only shade there is (be my highlight). It’s a pale gold color which will work best for light/medium skin tones. So, if you’re super fair or of a darker complexion, I don’t think this will work for you.
My favorite part about this product is the fact that it’s only $4.99! A total bang for your buck. Essence is known for affordable makeup and I love that. The packaging is very ‘cheap’ looking but I think that for the price you pay, it’s pretty good and it’s also quite small so you can take it anywhere with you.
If you’re looking for a bomb highlighter but you’re ballin’ on a budget, look no further than the Essence Pure Nude Highlighter.
Have you tried it yet?
Thank you so much for tuning in!
Lots of love,
