Essence Pure Nude Highlighter Review:
Packaging: Essence Pure Nude Highlighter comes in a round pan with a see through plastic lid. The packaging is not out of the world by any means. It can break easily if not taken care of and is not ideal for traveling purpose. But at this price point, I was not expecting much. This reminds me of the filmsy packaging of the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder.
Fragrance: The highlighter has a synthetic cosmetic scent which is not overpowering but it’s there. It goes away after sometime so it’s safe to say that sensitive skin tpes can use this without hesitation.
Shades: It comes in 4 Shades which is awesome. I personally feel like highlighting shades doesn’t have a lot of spectrum in our beautiful community, but this range has a good mix of shades. The four shades are named
- Be My Cosmolight,
- Be My Highlight,
- Be My Spacelight and
- Be My Sunlight.
I have the most popular shade from this range which is the Be My Highlight shade. It has a peachy golden hue with a slightly cool tone to it. This will suit a majority of skin tones except for very pale skin as it can look a bit dark on them. This shade is best suited for light to medium and medium skin tones.
The Essence Pure Nude Highlighter is a pure goddess. It is everything I thought it would be with only one con. Let’s start with the con. It has a slight amount of glitters. The glitters are ultra-fine and smooth and you have to be very close to see the particles in them. You may think that I am being extra paranoid though.
Moving onto why you need this. The highlighter glides onto the skin like butter. I just use my fingers to apply and it takes less than a minute to blend into the skin. As per its claim, it gives the subtlest glow which looks so good. It enhances the overall look with its subtle sheen.
- Benefit High Beam Highlighter
- Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter
- Colorpop Flexitarian Highlighter
- Wet n Wild MegaGlow Highlighter
This product is absolutely the best for beginners as you cannot go overboard with this. I meant to say that no matter how much you put on you never going to look like a disco ball. It does not look powdery on the skin and doesn’t accentuate pores or textures of the skin. The highlighter also holds well for a good amount of time.

- Blends easily even without applicator.
- Does not accentuate skin textures.
