Most Helpful Positive Review So pretty!!!
This highlighter is so pretty. Looks natural but not in the sense that it is dull, but in the sense that it isn't glittery and is more of a sheen than glitter. Beautiful and glowy!!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review So Beautiful But Broke Me Out :(
I LOVED this product initially. The glimmer it gives on your cheeks is stunning and I was so happy with the purchase, but the next day I noticed these terrible bumps starting to form on my temples and checks where I placed the product. I continued to use the highlight thinking maybe it was something else or my skin would get use to it but it did not. The bumps turned into full on acne JUST in the area where I used the highlighter. So sad that this happened. I will use it from time to time but never every day. The break outs are terrible. I'm selecting that I would recommend to a friend only because it so beautiful and I think you need to try it out for yourself since everyone's skin reacts differently.

Got this as a birthday gift. I used to be into blinding, in-your-face highlighters. But I've been into natural and subtle ones lately. This powder is really smooth. Unlike the typical drugstore highlighters that feel "chalky". You can build it up to make it "blinding".

I have had an obsession with highlighter for the last couple years! My 17yo has had to tell me to tone it down, lol. This highlighter is really nice. Not super shiny (like some of the liquids that give the Super Shine, which I still love) but still enough shine that gives a more natural and healthy look. I do have to reapply it at the end of the work day, if I still want to glow after hours, but that could just be my addiction to highlighter, HA. For the price, I wouldn't mind if I had to reapply 10 times a day. I will buy this again. I have light skin and bought "be my highlight 01"

I really light this highlighter I have light to medium skin. This is great for a subtle glow but you can also build it up. This is a staple for me and the price is amazing!
Not a fan

Take a lot of product to be visible.

This product is amazing. It gives you the most natural glow. It doesn't look too glittery to which I find nice.
I don't understand the hype around this
Piper from Canada
I originally purchased this highlighter because a lot of reviews said it gave you a very subtle, soft-focus glow that wasn't overly shiny. But it's very chalky and it's quite a peachy tone compared to what's advertised. It also has a lot of glittery particles that are very texture-enhancing. If you have a lot of texture this probably isn't the product for you. Even if you try to apply the highlighter with a brush or a finger the glitter shows through and is pretty noticeable. It doesn't really look like a glowy sheen on the skin it just looks like chalky shimmer. I'm glad this was cheap so I didn't feel like I wasted money, but I wouldn't repurchase this again.

A bit overhyped. Not bad, just overhyped 🤷🏽♀️
amazing, but too pigmented if you're very pale
CHS Hunny from Charleston, sc
Love this highlighter, but I'm very pale so under close scrutiny you can see it. Just a warning!

In usual ULTA fashion, the photo looks NOTHING like the product. The product is much warmer and has NO marbling as shown in the photo. I was also sent one that was open, and had been swatched. What's going on over there ULTA? How exactly does a customer receive a swatched customer return?
Perfect Formula, Imperfect Shade Range
Rhianna from Norman, OK
This is in my top two absolute FAVORITE highlighters of all time (drugstore AND high-end). It's beautiful! It gives a subtle yet ethereal glow to the face. It doesn't emphasize texture. It's not over powering. It's just fantastic. I wear it all the time in summer and fall (when I still have my summer tan). However, I can't wear it in winter and spring bc it's two dark. I wish they would come out with one that was the same exact time but just a shade lighter. I know they have a darker one (Sunlighter, I think). The limited shades is the only reason for the 4 vs 5 stars. Stellar product and the price is amazing! Although I'd be willing to pay more for better packaging bc my lid always breaks off and I have to by a new one.
beautiful natural highlight
krista from boston
love this!! and yes like the comments say, it definitely does NOT accentuate the texture on your face... it's very lit-from-within type of glow but not too subtle that you barely notice!! can't beat the price
perfect youthful glow
TJ from San Diego
can be applied as subtle as you want. hard to overdo.
Shiny and natural
Mary from MA
One of my favorite natural highlighters. The price also helps it be one of my favorites. It lasts all day as well.
A Little To Gray-Silver
VNobes from Florida
First, the finish of this is STUNNING. I have super oily skin with enlarged pores and texture. Suffice to say, finding a nice highlight that doesn't draw attention to texture is quite the task. This does NOT accentuate texture in the slightest. It almost melts into the skin. My only issue is it's more of a gray-silver shade; which makes that shadow-cast look on my face when I look straight ahead. I wish Essence had a more gold or peach toned shade in this formula to better suit my skin tone. Otherwise, it is BEAUTIFUL.
Beautiful natural looking highlight
Megan from IN
I really like this highlighter it looks very natural. Its a lot darker than i was expecting it to be so i would not recommend this for someone with fair skin, but i can make it work for my light skin tone.
So natural and pretty!
ThePolishedPinkieBeauty from IL
I LOVE that this has no glitter and just makes me look fresh with a natural glow to my skin. Such a great buy!
lex from New York
This was the first highlighter I ever bought when I first got into makeup, and since then I have tried so many others just because i like to try out new makeup. But I always come back to this one!! I love it so much, I would recommend to anyone. The color is perfect, and it's a glow, not sparkles.
Kelly D from MA
So I was super excited to try this highlighter after reading all of the really good reviews. Based off of the picture online I thought the shade would be perfect for my fair skin. I received my highlighter in my order and I thought it was a mistake. The highlighter was much darker than the picture on the website. The shade reminded me a lot of champagne pop from BECCA but this had more of an orange tone too it. When I apply it on my skin, this highlighter leaves a weird cast on my
Skin. It does give off a barely there highlight as well without the use of chunky sparkles which I like. I'm just disappointed this shade isn't for me.
Mimi from Kentucky
Truly is a beautiful, natural looking highlighter. I was worried at first, because at first I thought it was very powdery, but once you put it on your cheek bone, it looks like you're glowing from within

this is a good value - I would not buy again only because it is very light. I read the reviews and thought why not try. For first timers or If you want a barely glow then it is a great find! I want more and I don't like packing on color - but it was not expensive so no fowl. I do use it daily - so not to go to waste. Do not think you are getting more than what you paid for. I am glad it did not break me out :)
PERFECT Highlighter for Natural/Light Make-up days
ReillyJLC from Covington,GA
I heard this described on YouTube as "the perfect highlighter for those who don't really like highlighter" and that really is the perfect way to describe it. It gives such a natural subtle looking glow. If a blinding/glittery highlight is your what you are looking for, this one is not for you, but I LOVE this for lighter/more natural makeup days.
Best natural glow
Up all night from Slc
I'm not into the bright in your face highlighters. I like the more natural glow from with in This reminds me of an hour glass highlighter. Wore on my wedding day. Always gets compliments that my skin looks fresh. If you like those then get this. And it's less the 5 bucks. Can't beat it
