I have been on a complete highlighter obsession for the past couple of months, and as someone who has combination skin it's rare to hear those words come from me. However, I feel like the more blowy your skin is, the healthier it looks! I must admit though, there is a clear distinction between looking glowy and looking sweaty and greasy.

When searching for highlighters I always felt that the best ones were available in the US only, and we were left with the glitter on your cheek drugstore versions, or the overly priced high end ones - neither of these options I was desperately wanting to part with money for.

That's when I came across this amazing highlighter by Essence. Whilst browsing the Wilko website for Essence makeup, there this little beauty was. This is the Essence Soo Glow Cream To Powder Highlighter.

As the name suggests, this product is more of a cream product that I find best to apply with my fingers, I love to place it on the top of my cheeks, on my brow bone and above my brows, occasionally I will place some of this on the tip of my nose and on my chin when I'm after that extra glow. You can definitely see this immediately, it isn't a subtle highlight but if you worked with it and blended it completely you could definitely make it subtle.

My favourite way to wear this product is to pair a powder highlighter over the top, as this really makes it intense and sets it in place. When you do this, it will. not. budge. 

This highlighter costs £2.80 which is an absolute bargain, and you can find it here I have the shade No. 10 and can't recommend it highly enough.

What's your favourite highlighter? And your favourite Essence product?
