Essence The Highlighter (Heroic) review/recenzija

IMG_8638

In my previous blog post I reviewed new Essence “The blush” blushes, check it out here. I said that the next review will be all about Essence “The highlighter” new single highlighters and here it is. Essence had some highlighters in their main offer before but we never got Essence Pure Nude highlighter in Bosnia, so I never tried it. They also had some palettes, but I only tried Essence limited edition highlighters that I have few different ones from. I never really tried any in their main line of makeup so I was really excited to test this one out. I did try Essence #insta perfect liquid highlighter, check out review here. Shade of that #insta perfect highlighter reminds me of this “Heroic” shade that I’m going to review today.

U prethodnom blog postu sam recenzirala Essence „The blush“ nova rumenila, provjerite recenziju ovdje. Rekla sam da ću u slijedećoj recenziji da govorim o Essence „The highlighter“ hajlajterima i to vrijeme je došlo. Essence je prije imao nekoliko različitih hajlajtera u svojoj ponudi, ali mi nikada nismo dobili popularni Pure Nude hajlajter u Bosni. Iako je Essence imao različite hajlajtere u ponudi ja sam kupovala samo njihove limitirane hajlajtere jer su mi se oni najviše sviđali. Nikada nisam kupila hajlajter koji je u njihovoj osnovnoj ponudi do ovih novih „The highlighter“ hajlajtera. Probala sam Essence #insta perfect hajlajter (recenzija), koji bojom podsjeća na nijansu “Heroic” o kojoj ću danas nešto više govoriti.

Packing is the same as with Essence “The blush” blushes. It’s the same literally. You get the same amount of product that is 5 g or net wt. 0. 17 oz. Pattern on this highlighter is the same as with Essence “The blush” blushes. This product is suitable for vegans. Essence claims that this is silky smooth powder highlighter that will give you illuminated complexion. It is buildable texture that lasts all day. Shade Heroic is a nice, very light champagne shade that would work for a lighter skin tones really nicely. I wish it was more gold as golden highlighters suit me the best, but it’s still pretty nice wearable shade.

Pakiranje je isto kao kod Essence „The blush“ rumenila. Dobijete istu količinu proizvoda koja iznosi 5 grama. Print na hajlajteru je isti kao i kod Essence „The blush“ rumenila. Ovaj hajlajter je pogodan i za vegane. Essence tvrdi da je ovo svilenkasto mekan puderasti hajlajter koji će vam dati zdrav sjaj na koži. Radi se o teksturi koja se može intenzivirati i koja traje čitav dan. Nijansa Heroic je veoma svijetla šampanjac nijansa koja će pristajati mnogim svijetlim tonovima kože. Ja bih voljela da ima više zlatan odsjaj jer meni takvi hajlajteri najbolje pristaju, ali i ova nijansa je veoma lijepa i volim ju nositi.

Texture of this highlighter is pretty much the same as with Essence “The blush” blushes. It’s very soft and smooth so it does give a little bit of powder kick back. As I said before to me that is not a big issue as long as product blends well on skin. This highlighter is easy to blend on skin, it looks very soft and smooth. Pigmentation is not super intense, so with one layer you will get subtle, natural glow. If you decide to build it up you’ll get pretty intense glow. I usually wear two to three layers depending on my mood. I do like visible glow rather than natural one. I usually wear golden highlighters, so this one is a bit different for me. It’s much more neutral, rather than warm glow if you get what I’m saying. I do really like the formula of this one. I think that a lot of people would like this one. It’s not one of those super intense highlighters that you literally can’t blend on skin. You can achieve natural and more intense glow depending on how many layers you choose to apply. I think that these sort of highlighters are the best and easiest to use. This highlighter doesn’t emphasize texture too much, so it looks pretty smooth on skin.

Tekstura ovog hajlajtera je bukvalno ista kao tekstura Essence „The blush“ rumenila. Ovaj hajlajter je veoma mekan i glatak pa ostavlja malo puderastog ostatka. Kao što sam rekla prije to meni ne smeta sve dok se puder na koži lijepo blenda. Ovaj hajlajter se stvarno lijepo blenda na koži, ne naglašava pretjerano teksturu kože. Pigmentacija nije pretjerano jaka, radi se o prirodnijem hajlajteru ako nanesete jedan sloj. Međutim ako odlučite nanijeti više slojeva onda je pigmentacija jača i dobijete intenzivan sjaj na koži. Ja inače nosim dva do tri sloja, jer volim malo jači sjaj. Ja inače na svakodnevnoj bazi nosim zlatne hajlajtere jer se bolje stapaju sa mojom prirodno dosta žutom kožom, tako da izgledaju prirodnije. Ova nijansa hajlajtera je neutralna tako da će pristajati mnogim svijetlijim bojama kože, bez obzira kakav podton da imate. Radi se o neutralnoj šampanjac nijansi koja ima blago srebreni odsjaj koji pristaje dobro mnogim tonovima kože. Meni se mnogo sviđa formulacija ovog hajlajtera, mislim da bi mnogo ljudi bilo zadovoljno njime. Nije pretjerano pigmentovan tako da ga je teško blendati na koži, vrlo lijepo ga možete nanijeti bez obzira koji intenzitet sjaja da preferirate. Mislim da su hajlajteri koji se nanose tako da postepeno pojača intenzitet sjaja najbolji, jer su pogodni i za početnike i ljude koji su već naviknuti na makeup. Ovaj hajlajter ne naglašava mnogo teksturu kože, tako da ako teško nalazite hajlajtere koji vam odgovaraju, možda bi trebali probati ovaj.

If you are looking for a new highlighter I would recommend this one.

This is perfect highlighter for daily use that it’s very easy to use but looks pretty on skin. That’s all from me today. I hope you enjoyed this review.

Ako vam treba novi hajlajter ja bih preporučila ovaj. Mislim da izgleda vro lijepo na licu, lagan je za korištenje i vrlo jeftin. Ja ovaj hajlajter koristim u kombinaciji sa Essence „The blush“ rumenilom u nijansi Befitting (recenzija) svaki dan i baš mi se sviđa kombinacija. To je sve od mene za danas.

  1. I really like the sound of this, even though it’s not what you’re used to the natural, lighter champagne sounds quite nice and better perhaps for my ghostly white skin tone 😂 Love the ‘heroic’ shade name!
    Fab review lovely xx

  2. It will definitely work for a lot of lighter skin tones. It works on my skin also, it’s just that I’m used to golden tones. But still I wore it every day for two weeks now and I’m obsessed. It’s so pretty and definitely I recommend it. Thank you for reading. xx
