Review and Swatches: Essence Love Letters Love Poem Highlighter

Hello, everyone! Last week I was at DM, where I found untouched Essence Love Letters collection. I actually wasn't interested in anything from this collection, until I didn't saw a highlighter Love Poem in person. It has a quote engraved in it and it looks amazing. Because I have very little highlighters (I think 4 with this one), I decided to get it.


The packaging of highlighter isn't anything special, it's in a plastick rounded packaging with a transparent lid, that has the name of a collection written on it. Highlighter is huge, you get 9 g for 3,59 € and it will last you forever (well, not really forever, because makeup has an expiration date). But in the packaging highglighter looks amazing, it has a quote in it and I would probably never touch it, but I wanted to review it for my blog. The quote is: "Love ... bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things ... Love never fails."


Love Poem is in a vanilla shade with golden glitter, that is visible on face. Its pigmentation is very nice and it's easy to apply. I apply it with my Body&Soul blush brush, which is an angled brush and it's perfect for applying highlighter. It's a perfect highlighter to wear it on a top of cheeks, but I do not like to wear it on other parts of my face (nose, chin ...), because golden glitter is very visible and I personally do not like it on other parts of my face. It also last quite long on cheeks. I wore it a whole day on Wednesday, when I was in Ljubljana arranging some things, and when I came at home after 14 hours, the golden glitter was still there.


And this is how it looks on me. In person it's more noticeable. I find it very nice, if you want to add extra shine to your cheeks.


Another very nice product from Essence. I really like it, although my favourite highlighter is still Essence Gold Digger from Metal Glam collection. But I'll use this one a lot as well, specially when I'll want an extra shine on my cheeks. As I said, it costs 3,59 € and it's available in DM.

Have you tried anything from Essence Love Letters collection? What do you think about this highlighter? Thank you for reading!

    3. Se mi zdi, da Essence v večino stvari daje bleščice ali šimer, npr. za blush is Kalinke sem pričakovala, da bo mat, ampak vsebuje šimer, ki na srečo ni prevladujoč na licih. :D

  7. Jaz sem ga tudi kupila pa mi ni neki. Preveč so mi velike bleščice. Metal glam je bil ful boljši.

    1. Ja, saj bleščice znajo biti za marsikoga moteče. Meni je Metal Glam tudi ljubši. :D

  9. The design of this highlighter is really incredibly pretty <3 And the golden glitter particles are really visible, both on your hand swatch and face. However it's a bit disapointing for me, since I prefer highlighters with more visible shimmer and without glitters, so I probably won't buy it, if we get this TE, but I imagine this one will look amazing in summer, on tanned face, for some great party! :D

    1. Yes, glitter is pretty visible, this highlighter definitely isn't for everyone. One of girls commented, that it's a great on eyes as well. ;)

  10. Tudi meni je super, pa tudi kot senčko ga včasih uporabim :) Se mi pa zdi, da je količina bleščic, ki se prenese na obraz odvisna od uporabljenega čopiča :)

  12. I love the packaging and the quote, but I see it might be a bit too sparkly. But...I couldn't resist, it's so cheap... ;)
