It’s no secret that I love Essence as a brand. So naturally I’ve reviewed products from the brand in the past and a lot of my favourite products come from the brand.
Today I review the Essence Mosaic Blush in the shade 30 kissed by the sun.

I have a pic below where the product was used.
I didn’t actually use it for it’s intended purpose. I used it as a highlight. And that is typically how I use it anyway.
Lovely shade and gorgeous effect.
Blends out well.
Not too shiny to be used all over the cheek.
Good price for amount of product.
A tiny bit powdery.
It does fade off pretty easily which starts at about 3 to 4 hour wear.
This particular shade isn’t really pigmented because the colour doesn’t really show up, even on swatches (unless you are really light skinned).
I love this product. I can get away with a tiny amount of this as highlighter during day time.
