Affordable Glow

I first bought this product as soon as it was live on Takealot.com! I was so excited that Essence brought out a cream highlighter, I was over the moon! Do you know what the best thing is about this product and of course every other product from Essence? THE PRICE!!! Of course!

This highlighter is the perfect drugstore highlight, simply because you can wear it by itself, you can wear it on top of your foundation, and you can still apply powder on top of it and it won't lose the glow! Win Win, right?

So the consistency is creamy, and it almost looks like liquid pearls, it's so beautiful!

I love the fact that it's a pure glow you will get out of this product and not so much shimmer, if that makes sense!

You can use this as a cream highlight and then top it off with your favorite powder highlight such as MAC Soft and Gentle, the 2 paired together work amazingly well!

Essence is absolutely thriving!

The highlight of my day!

I use this product every single day to highlight my face with, and even if I don't do full face glam makeup I still apply it, since it give your skin such a natural healthy glow to it which I absolutely love.

I've also bought the Catrice High Glow product which is maybe a rand or two more expensive but other than that its as if it was made by exactly the same beauty house.

Its got the same creamy touch to it and apply like a charm. Same coloration, same look and feel to it and lasts the same. You will never catch me without one of the two and I cant see that I will change them for anything else soon.

This a a great combination of price, quality and availability!
Go Essence!

Essence Soo Glow - Cream to Powder Highlighter

I am not a huge fan of this one. It just doesn't show up on my skin as much as I would like it to. It also doesn't last very long. I think it would work better on dry skin, but for my oily skin I much rather prefer my MAC beauty powders.

A must have.

I had to get my hands on this after reading all the great reviews about it. Luckily I managed to find one in stock, it sold out super fast.. I mostly use to this on my cheek bones to accentuate it. I love how velvety textured this highlighter is. It also gives my skin that silly velvety feel and look.

Coming back to the texture of this highlighter, it's ultra silky and blends Very well. Because it is very pigmented, you will only need to use a little. That glow that it brings to my face is just amazing ,completes my look. There's a bit of shimmer in it but can be still worn during the day, to work as well as at night ,out on the town. Nobody will miss that glow on your face if you are using this baby..

The price is so good and the quality is even better. I think every girl should own one of these.

New fave

I am developing somewhat of an obsession for highlighters. I love the way it can complete an entire look. I've been wanting to try something other than a powder highlighter, and thought that the cream to powder formula of this one might make the transition into cream highlighters a little more gradual and easy to manage.

The Soo Glow is perfectly pigmented for me, with a finish that makes your skin look like it is glowing from within. It comes in two shades: look on the bright side (10) with yellow undertones, and bright up your life (20) with pink/salmon undertones. Given that my skin is warm with yellow undertones, I went for look on the bright side.

What I love most about this product is the ease with which you can blend it, even with your fingers. It is slightly on the shimmery side, so there is no need to apply too much, which I love. So perfect! Naturally, it's become a daily staple.

Affordable Highlighter

I love Essence products because they are so affordable, and when I saw they had highlighters I had to buy one.
I love using this highlighter as a base for a powder highlighter, i like the texture of it, its not to heavy and you can use your ring finger to easily apply it and it blends very nicely

Essence Highlighter

I really love Essence products. They're so affordable. This is the first highlighter that I've bought. I love the cream to powder formulation. It makes application oh so easy. I apply this product with my fingers and it blends well. My skin does get oily as the day goes by so when I use this product I pop it in my handbag for touch ups.
If you want to try your hand at highlighting this is a great product to try. It won't break the bank and being able to apply it without a brush means its great for beginners. The cream to powder formulation means it can work for most skin types.

Essence Soo Glow! Highlighter

Cream to powder products have always amazed me, but I’ve never been brave enough to try it out. When Essence launched this product in the beginning of the year, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. I circled the local Ballito Dis-Chem for a few weeks until I got my hands on this beauty.
For weeks after purchasing this highlighter, I just stared at the product, wondering when I’d be willing to test it out. …Three months later, I decided to play around with my new highlighter and gently swirl my fingers in this gorgeously perfect highlighter. Since I’m not really a fan of cream based highlighters, I was amazed to find this highlighter to be absolutely light and silky, rather than how I’d imagine it to be thick and heavy.
As you can see in the swatch, the Soo Glow! highlighter is highly pigmented, while the highlighter has a gorgeous pink tint to it, it leaves a faint glow with refined shimmer for a perfect night time look. After swatching the Soo Glow!, I applied the highlighter to my cheekbones, using a light hand while blending with a beauty blender. Soft natural looking highlight? YES!!! with a stunning pink glow. This cream highlighter got me mesmerised by how it the light caught the pigments and gave skin a natural glow.
Since I have a medium skin tone, I thought the Essence Soo Glow! was a little too much “shimmer princess” for a day time look, but I’m sure if you have a lighter skin tone, it would blend perfectly for a day time look. If you’re an everyday highlighter kind of girl and don’t want to break the bank over a highlighter, I’d definitely recommend this highlighter.
It is simple to use, lasts long on skin, and isn’t thick or oily so skin can breathe perfectly and if all else fails, it feels like magic applying a cream highlighter which fades into a gorgeous powder finish, if that main point doesn’t impress you even a little… I don’t know what will. Make sure you get your hands on the Essence Soo Glow!
