Serious #goldfinger vibes
New in: Essence Moonlighter Cushion Highlighter in Glinting Buff (there are three shades).
First: the minimalistic packaging and design in general is on point, which would be completely wasted when the content isn't fine. Luckily, my first impression is really good
It's a cushion highlighter with caring ingredients like niacinamide and squalane, the shade Glinting Buff is a beautiful shimmering gold. I first tried to apply it with my fingers (I always try to apply everything with my fingers, sometimes it's 🏻 and sometimes 🏻). In this case the cushion pad is there for a good reason- it's so much better to apply it this way. You can perfectly dab it on the places you want to be highlighted and it comes out more natural than with the fingers or brush.
I used it both under my foundation which works perfectly so far (still in the testing phase) and on top which you can see in the following pictures.
IMO the skin has to be always well prepared when using a cream highlighter, no matter which one (except the Champagne Rosé Luminizer because this one is so caring). You can see the colour best in the 3. & 4. picture with daylight and no filter. Wearing it in the 5 & 6 picture - last one with the brutal #sharperthanreality front camera. Now I'm highly interested in the other @clecosmetics products, especially the CCC cream with a SPF 50.
