essense – glazed donut – highlighter


Hi my Readers πŸ™‚

This is not the glazed donut you were all thinking about (hint: Nikkie Tutorials) but it is still a very nice highlighter.

I have bought several essence highlighters and I don’t really know if I like them or not πŸ˜€

Lets start with this one.

What it claims and ingredient list:

My impressions:

This is white highlighter with white specks of glitter that are not particularly intense. It is really brightening and if you use it like me – with heavy hand – can look little white-ish on the face. So the part where it claims that this is from white to dark skin tones – not the case. If you have medium or slightly darker skin, you can still use it as an eyeshadow or eye corner highlight but not as much like face highlight. So it is probably you pick up some other shade.

I use this highlighter as base since it is not enough for me (I like reeealy intense highlight). I place it as base on the highest points of the back of the cheeks, continue it applying it in C shape and motion towards the brow bone and that’s it. After I continue with another shade of highlighter that I apply only on the upper back portion of the highest part of the cheek (come to think of it, a diagram would’ve been better πŸ˜€ ).


If your skin is really pale, this can be used as brightening highlight (not powder since it has the specks of glitter) or if your skin is little less pale (is that even a thing) you can use it as base and mix it up with other highlighters, like I do.
As you can see, it is little banged up since it traveled through states and cities and it is still in good form.

On these pictures, the light is in the other room and this is a reflection (also a blurred one for comparison):

Have you tried some of the essence highlighters and what are your impressions?

Have a nice one,

Wet N Wild, RosΓ© In The Air E758 eyeshadow palette


Hi my Readers πŸ™‚

If this isn’t old palette, I don’t know what isn’t. I decided to make this post anyway because I’m sure many people have it in their collection. I wanted to bring it up just to remind many of you that we already have too much makeup in our collection. πŸ™‚

At first, I couldn’t decide which one to but. I didn’t wanted to buy them both because I already had too much neutrals and this was going to be my travel palette, since I want to travel with as less as possible.

I opted for the RosΓ© In The Air.Β  This palette is hyped so much so I had to give it a go. It is compared with the Anastasia Beverly Hills – Modern Renaissance palette.

This eyeshadows blend really nice and they are really good for an everyday look. If you like something bolder (like me) you’d probably want to mix it with another palette or just bring a black with you (like I do) and there you go. Although there is darker brown so that would work just as well.

On the back on the packaging, there is pictorial and example of how you would use the shadows.

Another thing to note is that it is really easy to hold and handle. It is tiny but it definitely better for me this way. I have a longer MUR palette that I can put a brush inside for my sort travels but this is way better for me.

Since There are many bloggers that did swatches, I’m going to include some of theirs just because I want to promote some blogs. If anyone wants to be here, just write me. In the meantime:


Or if you want swatches specifically on my pale skin, you can write me too. πŸ™‚

I definitely recommend this palette since their shadows are really easy do blend and create a look with.

If you have made a post about this palette, I would for sure want to check it out, so make sure you link them in the comments.
Other readers, make sure you check the comments if hopefully someone left a comment with their post about this palette πŸ™‚

Have a nice one πŸ˜‰
