Most Helpful Positive Review I will buy this as long as it's on the market.
Kathleen Lights (of YouTube) recommended this. Knowing that she uses high end as well as drug store products, I decided to try it. I'd never been too impressed with Essence Cosmetics but this highlighter is amazeballs! It's soft and so smooth as well as highly pigmented. There's no glitter (thank goodness). You end up with the nicest glow on your cheeks. This is the cheapest highlighter (price wise) I own and it's also the best. I'm the color of Haley Berry and this color is perfect on my skin. The color looks kind of dark in the picture but it applies bright (in a good way). A little goes a long way. You honestly have nothing to lose by trying this highlighter. Will be stocking up.
Most Helpful Critical Review Lighter Shades!!!
I give huge props to Essence for releasing darker shades, but MA'MA where are our fair champagnes at!!!! I'm as white as a ghost and I can't use any of these lovely highlights, that I just adore the formula of! I really wish you would look at the whole spectrum and release some shades for us ghost out here! Have a blessed day!

Shockingly this product is very bold and has a strong highlight glow to it. With just one swipe I was shook! Definitely a great buy for the price.
pure NUDE Highlighter

If you're considering getting this highlighter don't think about it just get it! The packaging and color doesn't look like much but this is one of the most beautiful and natural looking highlighters that I've ever used.

I really love using this highlighter. It doesn't look like much when you see it but it gives you a gorgeous natural looking glow. I've been using this for years and I love it.

Perfect for Deep Skin Too!
Mariahmochanae from Houston, arc
This highlighter is the perfect everyday highlighter for deep skin. At work, you don't want a blinding highlight, so this is perfect. It is buttery and melts into the skin. It doesn't have any chunky glitter and you can layer it for more pop!
Andrea from Texas
I was afraid this was gonna be too dark for me but it's perfect! I got the other highlighter so I wanted to try this too. It's a very subtle highlight but I think it's more realistic for everyday life.

I first used this highlighter a couple years ago and I remember I loved it. I repurchase it recently and I still like that it gives a subtle "inner" glow, but I don't remember it being as dark as it is. Besides that, I'd repurchase it. I also really want to try the purple highlighter.
Too dark for my skin tone
Olivia from OH
I am an East Asian with light skin tone. I was looking for a highlight with a golden tone. I loved the texture of this product however it was too dark for me - almost looked like a bronzer. I'll be returning this for a lighter shade.
Daphne from Cleveland, OH
I use this as a highlighter and it's really pretty
Good for the price!

It has a subtle buildable glow, very little kickback in the compact.
Patricia from San Pablo
Love this highlighter for medium to dark skin.. I wear gold all the time and this highlighter is awesome not too beaming.
Adri from California
This is a very nice highlighter for tan to deeper skin tone. It gives a nice glow. Once you scrape off the top layer, since it is baked. It becomes way more intense. I love it because it doesn't have glitter. It's perfect for light/natural makeup days. Or you can build it up to be more intense.
Great golden natural highlight for tan skin
Nova92 from Los Angeles
It is a soft glow with no sparkle, it just looks very smooth and it gives such a beautiful look for more natural days. Beautiful.
Amber from Mansfield
If you like gold colors it's a love but honestly I'd use it more as a bronzer than a highlighter. But that's just me. Still cute though!
The Highlight is amazing
Kharb from AL
This is a gorgeous highlighter/bronzer. I use this over my dark bronzer to give an additional glow. Love it for the price!
Chibear386 from Florida
This highlighter is a naturally radiant glow for olive med skin tones!! ❤️
Amazing lit from within natural glow ❤️
Reshma from Los Angeles
Love it! Natural glow that looks great for everyday wear ( can also be build up for more intensity)
elle from Illinois
it's very pretty, but it's not as soft and easy to pick up product as the original pure nude highlight. If you have a medium to dark skin tone this would look amazing on you
Rose from Chicago, IL
Saw this product had good reviews, and the price was so low, so I figured why not try it? I have several high end pallets and products, and think this is definitely on par, if not better then 95% of them. I've had a lot of compliments about how my skin has such a "nice summer glow," (mind you it's winter in Chicago, and I'm fair and don't tan), and always tell them it's this, and to try it it. Great pay off in color and super smooth. Get it. You can't lose.
Jenna from Maryland
My fav!!! Hard to find a highlighter that gives a wet look instead of chunky glitter. Love love love this
Mindy from TX
This gives your skin the healthiest glow. I read that people say it makes you like you glow from within and it certainly does. I've been wearing this in the summer heat and it looks good all day. I've gotten compliments and it's become my favorite highlighter.
me_me marie from Western Washington
I'm a medium-tan to tan with neutral skin tone. I use this as a highlighter. It's a nice drugstore highlighter. It can be a subtle highlight but can build it if you want a bit more glow. There amount of product you get for the price is great. I have dry, sensitive skin & doesn't break me out. I would repurchase.
Decent for an inexpensive bronzer.

Make sure to blend really well.
love it < 3

This product is so underrated. This essence highlighter is so good and so affordable. Plus it's great for a more natural but still amazing highlight.
Wouldn't buy again
Katen from Chicago IL
I hoped it would be a little more suntan but this is pretty light. It also doesn't last very long.
