Essence Go for the glow highlighter palette review/recenzija

IMG_5813

I’m sure that this is one of the products from new Essence fall/winter 2018 collection that everyone is curious about because it looks stunning. This palette was definitely one of the products that I wanted to try as soon as possible, because I’m still looking for perfect highlighter from Essence. The super popular Pure Nude highlighter is not available in Bosnia, it never was unfortunately. So I’m still looking for perfect highlighter to try from them.

Sigurna sam da je ovo jedan od hit proizvoda iz nove jesen/zima 2018 Essence kolekcije. Pakiranje je vrlo lijepo, a naravno i trend hajlajtera još uvijek traje. Ovo je paleta koju sam ja odmah htjela probati, jer još uvijek nisam našla idealan hajlajter iz Essence-a. Njihov popularni Pure Nude hajlajter nikada nije bio dostupan u Bosni nažalost. Tako da i dalje čekam na perfektan hajlajter u Essence kolekciji.

Packing is just stunning, this is definitely why most people were excited about this palette. Pictures don’t do it’s justice, it’s golden but holographic as well. It’s truly stunning, you have to see it in person. I have this palette in 02 – the warms, they have cool toned version as well. I don’t know why they called this one warm tones because inside you have only one warm toned shade. You get 12 g of product in this palette or 0.42 oz. They say that this is perfect to highlight your face with a warm, metallic glow. You get three exciting shades that offer a unique and exotic holographic effect. You can apply them with fingers or a brush, whenever you want to glow. You get a decent size mirror in this palette as well.

Pakiranje je izuzetno lijepo, sigurno je većina djevojaka kupila ovu paletu upravo zbog pakiranja. Na slikama ne izgleda kako izgleda u stvarnosti, jer zavisi od toga kako svjetlost pada na nju. Moja paleta je u toplim pod tonovima, iako se ja na slažem sa tom tvrdnjom. Imaju još jednu paletu u kojoj se nalaze plave i ledene nijanse hajlajtera. Dobijete 12 g proizvoda, što znači da svaki hajlajter ima 4 g. Essence tvrdi da je ovo idealan proizvod da svom licu date lijepi, topli sjaj. Tri nijanse koje dobijate u ovoj paleti daju egzotičan holografski efekat. Može se nanositi sa prstima ili četkicom kada vam treba sjaj na licu ili tijelu.

As I already said I don’t know why the called this palette warm toned palette, because it definitely isn’t true warm toned palette. Shades look quite dark in person, you definitely wonder can you use them as highlighters. My favorite shade is obviously 1st shade in palette. It looks really dark, but the good thing is that these are not super pigmented so you can get away with using this one as a highlighter. If you are on pale side I think this one wouldn’t work for you because it definitely has bronzed base. If you like to wear a lot of bronzer then this one would be a great highlighter. Second shade is my least favorite, it’s purple with blue shift. Now I’m really not a fan of holographic highlighters so this one is not for me. I thought I could wear it as a blush topper, but I can’t because I don’t want my blush to have blue shift. If you build it up it looks lilac, definitely something for brave girls. Third shade is strong pink, it would look super pretty on cooler complexions. I have really yellow skin so this one doesn’t work for me at all. I do like to use it as a blush topper, or I mix 2nd and 3rd shade to use as a blush topper. That way the effect of 2nd shade is less lilac, it’s more wearable if that makes sense.

Nisam sigurna zašto su rekli da je ova paleta sa toplim tonovima, jer samo jedna nijansa u paleti je toplog tona. Nijanse izgledaju prilično tamne kada ih gledate, ja sam se zabrinula da li će odgovarati kao hajlajteri. Moja omiljena nijansa u paleti je naravno prva nijansa jer je to jedina nijansa koja ima topli podton. Prilično je tamna tako da za većinu ljudi svijetlije puti neće odgovarati. Pošto ja nosim dosta bronzera ova nijansa je dobar hajlajter za moju kožu. Druga nijansa u paleti mi se ne sviđa. Prvo sam mislila da će ovo biti lijepo rumenilo, ali ova nijansa ima dosta plavo-ljubičastih šljokica u sebi, pa na licu daje prilično hladan ton, što mojoj toploj koži ne odgovara. Naravno razumijem da je ovo holografski hajlajter, ali ja iskreno nisam ljubitelj njih. Posljednja nijansa je roza koja se može koristiti i kao hajlajter i preko rumenila da mu date malo sjaja. Ja je koristim preko rumenila obično i vrlo lijepo izgleda. Ako želim koristiti drugu nijansu u paleti onda je pomješam sa trećom nijansom i to koristim kao rumenilo, jer tada efekat plavog odsjaja druge nijanse nije intenzivan i izgleda ljepše na licu.

Texture is smooth, tiny bit powdery, but they look smooth and good on skin. As I said I mainly use first shade, so for me this palette is not every day palette. I mainly use it for night time and honestly it’s not something I reach for a lot. That’s mainly due to holographic effect in these shades that I’m not a fan of as I already said. That’s all from me today. I hope you enjoyed this review. Let me know did you try this palette already? Would you buy it? Thank you for reading. Have a nice day! xx

Tekstura je glatka, lako se blenda, postoji vrlo malo puderastog ostatka. Izgledaju vrlo lijepo na koži, posebno prva nijansa koja se lijepo stapa sa ostatkom makeup-a. Kao što sam već rekla ja koristim najviše prvu nijansu, jer ona odgovara najbolje mojem tonu kože. Ovo nije paleta koju koristim svaki dan u rutini šminkanja, većinom je koristim za noć, a i to nije često. Ova paleta nije za mene zbog holografskog efekta u posljednje dvije nijanse, to ja ne volim i iskreno i ne stoji mi najbolje. To je sve od mene za danas. Nadam se da vam se svidjela ova recenzija. Recite mi da li ste probali ovu paletu već? Da li je namjeravate kupiti? Hvala vam na čitanju. Želim vam lijep dan! xx

  1. Essence has been killing it lately with products launches and the packaging. I loved the look at first but after reading your review, I realise that the colours aren’t for me. The first one will be too dark, the second one has a blue shift and I’m not fond of that anymore, and the final shade will look wrong with my undertone like you said it did with yours. Too bad because the packaging is really pretty and the formula sounds pretty nice. Great review! xx

  2. The packaging looks absolutely gorgeous, I am not really tempted to try it though because I think the shade will look too dark on me, but I don’t know, I’ll swatch in the store to see! I am impressed with Essence though, they are doing so good!! Great review as always xx

  3. Yes, I was like that also when I just looked at the shades. I thought second shade will be beautiful blush, but I can only pull it off in night time. Third shade I only use as a blush topper. First one is nice highlighter for me, but again I mainly use it in night time. I thought this will be my every day palette, but unfortunately it’s not. Such a shame, because formula is really great quality. xx

  4. Such beautiful packaging! It’s just annoying that they’ve mislabelled it as warm tones when there’s only really one warm tone. The colours are super pretty but like you said i don’t if they’d be that practical for highlighters if you have fair skin like I do xx

  5. They imagines it as a fun palette, but honestly I don’t think I would buy something that I won’t be using a lot. They should make really nice warm toned highlighter palette with nice gold and peachy highlighters, I feel like everyone would buy those. These are trendy but not something most girls would wear on daily occasions. xx
