Be My Sunlight

Essence Be My Sunlight Pure Nude Highlighter ($4.99 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft, golden peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a soft, slightly dusty consistency that had a bit of excess powder that kicked up in the pan, but it ended up applying quite well to bare skin. I worried the powder was going to be drier or go on unevenly on my cheeks, but the highlighter applied evenly, blended out easily along the edges, and did not appear dry/dusty on. It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before it started to show signs of fading.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I love this Highlighter. I have been using this daily for a few months and it is my new favorite! It can be applied for a subtle glow or you can build it to be blinding. It is a great color for deeper skin tones. The original shade from this brand is too light for my skin but this one is perfection!
