Essence Lights of Orient - Highlighter Stick Swatches & Review

One of the things that I can't live without when it comes to makeup is a good highlighter. Applying it on the higher points of my face makes my dull & pale skin glowing & fresh. Luckily for me when I stopped by at the beauty counter of Essence cosmetics in one of my favorite malls one time, the sales lady said that later that evening it will be replaced be a new collection *gasp* Without any second thoughts I grabbed it & bought it which I have been eyeing for quite some time.

Essence Lights of Orient Highlighter Stick - Golden Gate to Orient

Packaging : It comes in a sleek plastic black chubby stick with a twisted bottom to get the product. 

Upon seeing this first, Essence got the concept from the Arabian Nights particularly Aladdin inspired design.

Net Weight : 0.22 oz / 6.38 g

As you can see the picture above, I have twisted the chubby stick until I can't twist it anymore for you to see the quantity of the product, So, you can't a lot of product here. Just so you know.

The shade is a golden champagne-y beige with shimmer which reminds me of a golden colored like dessert.

It has a subtle finish upon swiping at least once to twice for those people who just loves an inner, natural glow but to those who wants a more deeper glow or highlight sheen, I suggest you need to swipe three or more to get that effect.

Overall, I love this product. It is buildable whichever effects you prefer & the finish is a beautiful sheen fit for all skin tones. 

So, do you have this Essence highlighter?
