Rated 4.55 out of 5 stars
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!!!!
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.

If you want a highlighter that looks like a natural glow, this is it!! I have tried lots of high end and pharmacy highlighters, and since I discovered this one, I dont use any other. Best of the best!!!

I have a pink baked highlighter from this brand and love it. Got this one for a different tone and was disappointed with the lack of luster. It looks more luminous in the online photos but barely adds anything to my face when I apply it. Looks way more matte in person.

Uts quite lierally the only powder highlight i use on a daily basis, it gives off the "glow from within" sheen

My favorite highlighter ever! I love how it's not glittery or chunky! It's so smooth and pretty. Gives such a natural glow, and I'm in love! It's pressed perfectly- not too soft or hard

I love this stuff. The feel and effect it gives on the skin reminds me a lot of the ambient lighting powders from Hourglass. I willl always have this as a part of my collection.

I don't really get into that overly glowy or glittery look. This one is neither. Just gives that suddle glow. Perfect for me. Easy to work with and buildable. I'm a former Estee Lauder user and this is just as good as the high end product.

I have semi-textured combination skin with visible pores on my cheeks and nose, and this highlight sits perfectly on my skin. It isn't blinding or sparkly but gives a very natural lit-from-within glow. It does not emphasize texture, which is huge!

I didn't see any difference when I put the product on.

So I saw an influencer use this online; and it looked like she got a very nice glow from it even though she has fair skin like me. I did try this twice so far; and although the areas I applied this were technically lighter in tone, there was no glow to speak of. So maybe this just doesn't work with my skin type...

Love this for my medium skin tone. Makes you look like a goddess

I'm an extreme makeup minimalist and this is my go to eyeshadow. it blends well, leaving a nice sheen. For reference, my skin tone matches Juvia's Place Oslo, so this would be a bit too dark to use as a highlight imo.

Subtle, flattering, easy to use. A little goes a long way. Great value!

Wow, I did not expect to like this product so much! It was recommended to me on a YouTube video I watched and I decided to give it a try even though I'm not really familiar with this brand. I've tried a lot of highlighters that just look so wrong on your face, but this one is completely natural and beautiful, just like other reviewers have said. It's kind of creamy but a powder. It doesn't make my face look shiny or amplify my aging, drier skin either. Sometimes I'm nervous with powders because I am in my later 50s and think it will look bad on my skin but this looks perfect. It makes you look radiant and healthy. So happy I tried this product!

I first heard about Essence from a makeup artist who recommended the mascara. Each product I and my daughters have tried since has been great, especially for the price. This highlighter is just right - not too shiny, not to shimmery and wears well.

I use it early day and I've had for a year now and I still have so much product left! So good for the price :)

I love this highlighter. Was a little worried it'd be too dark for my skin, but turned out perfect!
Rose from Orlando, FL
I have never been a fan of highlighter, but after seeing this product all over social media I decided to give it a try since it is so affordable. This is GORGEOUS. There is no glitter, it goes on so smoothly, and it lasts all day. 10/10

I'm going to get back ups!
This doesn't look like much but when you put it on & blend it 😍 wow!
It is the most beautiful natural highlight!
My skin looked so stunning. Not metallic, glittery & obvious. Definitely a glow
Performs better than ABH & Jaclyn highlighters
gia from California
This is the most beautiful, lit from within highlighter. I literally have not used another highlighter since buying this a few months ago, absolutely gorgeous!!!
Aly from Dallas ,Texas
So usually I don't feel the need to write a review but I kinda feel like I was scammed? the highlighter is darker than the photo online and if it shows up on my skin it kinda looks like my natural highlight. I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem for others but I was looking for a lighter highlighter so it would pop more. After looking at reviews I see that others also have the same problem. it also doesn't have the same ounces or grams which I thought was kind of odd.

I love this highlighter. I'm very fair skinned and getting a highlighter that doesn't leave a glittery finish but give me that "inner lot-from-within-glow" or "It looks like I just gotten back from vacation" luminosity for a fraction of the price. It's a great steal and a makeup staple for me.

Essence Pure Nude in "Be My Highlight" is special to me, and this is a repurchase. Why do I love it? First is the color. It fits my skin tone and does not leave unnatural icy white stripes along my cheekbones, like some highlighters do. Second is the glow it gives. The glow is so natural that when I look closely in a mirror at any time during the day, I cannot detect any particles of powder or glitter – the highlighter looks like my own skin, only prettier!
Crown from NYS
This is a nice highlighter for everyday if u don't want a very glowy highlighter. This is a good one and would recommend and subtle highlight
Deanna from Louisiana
This highlighter gives a beautiful natural looking shimmer and doesn't look very glittery. It does look a tad bit powdery on my dry skin, but the product is a powder so that is expected. It looks best when set with a setting spray.
