Essence for Justin Bieber • Beauty Beats Shimmer Powder in 01 Swaaag!: Swatches & Review

Essence Beauty Beats Shimmer Powder in 01 Swaaag!
I have to say upfront I'm not and never been a Belieber but I'm just a fan of the essence face powders that get manufactured from Poland. I could not resist this one! This Shimmer Powder retail for $3.99 each at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Product: Shimmer Powder is a fine miller shimmer particle highlighter. The texture is smooth to apply with slightly larger shimmer particles in it.

Colour: 01 Swaaag! is a pale beige shimmer that appears lighter on the skin.

Wear: 12 hours with no issue left on it's own before noticing any sort of fading.

Packaging: Standard plastic compact with a clear lid. The pan in embossed with the word SWAG repeated. The blush in this collection has Boyfriend embossed in a similar manner.

Compare: Reminds me of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade and the Physicians Formula Happy Booster™ in Translucent but this one is slightly beigier tone compared to those two and the it Cosmetics Vitality Face Disc Highlighter is similar as well.

Daylight swatches: Beauty Beats Shimmer Powder heavy and buffed out. 
Flash swatches: Beauty Beats Shimmer Powder heavy and buffed out.

Verdict: 
I have no problem with recommending this one. Although I like a finer milling (less noticeable shimmer) this is still subtle enough to work on fair to medium skin tones.

  1. I have the Essence Twilight Breaking Dawn Highlighter in "Bella's Secret". I loved the color, and when I went to pay for it I was immediately asked if I liked Twilight. Um, no, but I like the product. You can like the product and not the inspiration, you know? Looks like a nice products, Belieber or not ;)
