Essence Winter Dreamin' TE Highlighter & Blush Duo and Catrice Dazzle Bomb LE Sparkle Fluid

Essence Winter Dreamin' TE Highlighter & Blush Duo and Catrice Dazzle Bomb LE Sparkle Fluid

I got these two products a while ago, but I completely forgot to do a review of them, even though I have been using the blush a lot lately, and the sparkle fluid has been sitting on my dressing table ever since I got it. I guess I just don't like the products as much as I thought I would. The Sparkle Fluid is from Dazzle Bomb LE from Catrice and the 2in1 Highlighter & Blush is from the Winter Dreamin' TE from Essence. I did still see both of the collections in Müller last week, so you can still get some products if you want. If you're interested, I made a preview of the whole Winter Dreamin' TE.

The sparkle fluid comes in a heavy glass bottle. It seems like a good quality, I don't think it would break if you drop it. You get 21ml of products for 7,29€, which seems quite expensive for Catrice, but it does hold a lot of product, especially for the amount you actually need. It comes with a dropper. The formula is very liquidy and shimmery, so the dropper was a good idea. Also, it smells nice, like baby powder and it is quite strong. The finish is very shiny and mostly there is just a lot of shimmer, but if you apply more, then you also get like a rose-toned sheen.

I normally put some drops on the back of my hand and then apply it where ever I want it. I did try it on my face as a highlighter, but I didn't like it, in the shadow or inside it looks okay, but when it's really sunny or at a strong artificial light, it can look too much. I do like it for my body, to highlight specific areas. Actually, it seems great for New Years or some other parties. It will probably be great for summer too, to give a bit of shimmer to your body.

The highlihgter and blush duo comes in a white plastic packaging, that looks and feels cheap. I have a feeling the lid will quickly break. It is small, but a bit bulky, but you do get two products in it. You get 11g of product for around 4,50€

You have two products in the packaging, the highlighter and a blush. Essence says that using this compo should give you a look like you've just taken a walk in the cool morning air.

The highlighter it's not very pigmented and it's not really visible on my skin. I apply it with a small and precise highlighter brush and it looks nice. If you apply too much it can look patchy and dry. It contains shimmer and looks like a natural shine, I normally don't like shimmer on my face, but it looks very natural. It doesn't last long on my cheeks, maybe a few hours. I'm not sure what else to say about it, it's not bad and I also wouldn't say it's particularly good.

The blush is really pretty. It's such a nice red shade, that looks gorgeous on the cheeks, like a flush of colour, like Essence says; like I have just taken a walk in the cool morning air. It's poorly pigmented, less than the highlighter, so I normally use a more dense brush, to pick up more of the product. It lasts for about half a day, then it starts to disappear.

I have to say that none of these products really impressed me. The sparkle fluid is nice, but it's not something for me, maybe I will use it more in the summer. I guess I just prefer powdery products for my face or body. The highlighter and blush duo wasn't bad, but the highlighter was not the best, especially for my skin tone. The blush was the only good part, I love the shade, but it is badly pigmented.

Thank you for reading!
