I have always loved a lil bit of shine! And when highlighters came in vogue I was excited to try one on. But highlighters are expensive, the best one can easily set you back by 3K! So when I saw this baby from essence cosmetics for 325 INR it was love at first light! The Essence so glow highlighter shines like crazy, if done right.
While this highlighter is a steal at 325 INR but the application also is tricky to get your shine on!
So here is our review of the Essence so glow highlighter:
Price: While the Essence So Glow cream to powder highlighter is available at various prices online, we got it from the only cosmetic store in Delhi that stocks Essence. Saj Sajja is a huge store in Malviya Nagar Market, bang next to Moti Sweets. I got it for a mere 325 INR.
Packaging of the Essence So Glow cream to powder highlighter: Since Essence is a budget brand in Europe, their packaging kind of shows that. The plastic casing is thin and breakage prone. The flip open case requires some precision to keep it from cracking.
Texture of Essence So Glow cream to powder highlighter: The Essence So Glow cream to powder highlighter is supposed to be of a cream like texture before it settles to become powder form. However the cream form is a bit sticky much like Vaseline.
How to apply the Essence So Glow cream to powder highlighter perfectly: Since the texture is such pick some product on a blush brush and immediately apply in quick strokes. The quicker you work the better it blends. Apply some face primer and compact beforehand.
Pros of using Essence So Glow cream to powder highlighter:
The best budget highlighter.
Looks decent as a highlighter.
Is perfect for the night outs.

You have to work quickly to get it perfect before it sets into powder.
