Good morning sweeties, today I want to talk about a product that Instagram made me buy it. As a true lover of highlighters, I have been attracted to this sweet rainbow one. It is from Essence and you can find it online (unfortunately Essence does not have an online store but here in Italy it is easily available on other sites, such as Maquillalia) or OVS.
Prismatic Rainbow Glow Highlighter 10 be a unicorn
🦄 “Wherever you go, be a unicorn over the rainbow.” 🦄

List of ingredients:

It has four different colours of highlighters: blue, yellow, pink and red. I was really curious about the final result obtained by blending the four colours, but let’s go to the swatches!
The texture is very soft, but compact and the glow is really bright since the first application. As for the individual colors, the most striking are blue and red, and I must say that I like them very much. Maybe the blue is the least portable, but it can be very useful in more particular make-ups. The mid colours, yellow and pink, are lighter, so the difference is less noticeable.
I have to be honest, I did not expect at all the final result obtained by mixing the four colours. I expected something more colorful, but actually it create this glowing golden and silver (?), Definitely portable. The only thing I’m sorry about is that blending them you loose the colored reflexes!. In short, if I use a rainbow highlighter, I would like the rainbow on my face! 😂🌈 So I tried to add the single colours over and some very light colored reflexes appeared!
If you like an effect like this, I suggest you to try it! It is an economic product, very particular and very nice. I would love to try it on a dark skin.
Have you ever tried it? Do you like the rainbow effect in highlighters?
