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.

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.

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
Best Natural Highlight
Ava from Maryland
This is amazing. It is so beautiful on the skin and gives that glow from within, which I love. And I didn't think this when I saw it online but the pan is so big for the price!!!
Amy from Ohio, USA
This highlighter is my go-to for my natural looks. It gives such a nice glow to your face without being too glittery or flashy.
I would buy this again
Alex from Woodbridge,Va
This product is so good definitely would recommend.
jefschr from Wisconsin
This was the very first highlight I ever purchased a few years ago - I repurchased to use on someone for senior pictures and a friend for her wedding- it gives the most beautiful glow from within look but can also be layered for a beaming highlight!
Beautiful sheen, not glittery
LL from NC
I have been using this for years, it is perfect. It gives a nice glowy sheen rather than a sparkly look. It is long lasting and the price is great. On me it definitely shows up nicely but still looks natural. I don't like silvery white highlighters; I have fair skin, this is more of a candlelight color on me, it is a lovely color. Never had a problem with a breakout from this. Amazing product.
beautiful but too dark!!
vivian from skokie
i love this highlighter so much—it gives a glossy look with a powder and i feel like it gets better the further you get into the product. my only gripe is that unless i'm tanned, it's slightly too dark for me so i have to be really light handed.
Too dark for fair skin
Rachel from Houston TX
The Be My Highlight shade was too dark for my fair skin. I put it on and saw a brown streak where I placed it. The glow is perfect but the tone it too dark for highlight areas
Nayonce from Riverside CA
I have fair to medium skin tone and yellow undertone and this is okay, it's a little powdery but it goes on fine and smooth.
Perfect natural highlight
shelbs from Saint Paul
I have fair/light skin with neutral undertones. This is the perfect natural highlight. Your skin, but better. Glow from within. Does not emphasize texture. Jessica Braun recommended this and I'm so glad I tried this!
Raylee from Tennessee
I put this on around 7:30 am and when I looked in the mirror at 6:30 pm it looked like I was glowing! This is so buttery and not glittery or shimmery at all! It is the best highlighter ever!
I would buy this product again
Donna from Oklahoma
This will give you a slight sheen it's very subtle, and adds a little color as well
Better than high end
Dayna from Atlanta
Bought this because one of my favorite beauty YouTubers recommends it. Wonderful highlighter! This is a great every day highlighter that gives a "lit from within" look. I have tons of high end highlighters and this can stand up to all of them.
will repurchase from Murrieta, Ca
If you want a subtle glow after baking with translucent powder, look no further! this is it! its perfect!! it brings life back into your face after all that baking. I would 1000% recommend. Perfect dupe for hourglass. Tati recommended this a while back and im so glad she did!
Lit From Within
Glo from Asheboro, NC
I have always had this highlighter on my radar for as long as I can remember. I never picked it up because I typically prefer "blinding" highlighters, but recently I just said why not and purchased it and let me tell you, I do NOT regret it! Yes it is more subtle than I'm used to but it is so stunning, it truly gives you the "lit from within" kind of look and I am here for it. I wore it for 12+ hours yesterday and I got so many compliments! it seemed to just sink into my skin the longer I wore it. If you want more of a BAM look, I recommend layering colurpop's flexatarian, or just another highlighter over it.
I definitely recommend this product to anyone and everyone! and for such a cheap price, why not?
I like this better than the expensive highlighters
Deb from Upstate from NY
I will buy again!
Christina from Utica, NY
This was way too subtle for my liking. Could barely tell it was on. Luckily I didn't pay much.
