My thoughts on Etude House Secret beam highlighter

I will start by saying that I don’t use highlighters in my daily routine at all. I do love the way highlighters make my skin look, but I do feel that it is a little too much for me during the day time.

Etude House Secret beam highlighter on the other hand is a highlighter I wouldn’t have a problem with using during day time, since it is subtle and creates a nice shimmer on my skin.

Swatch Gold and Beige mix Etude House secret beam highlighter

I decided to go for the version that is yellow toned. My skin is also yellow toned, and when I apply pinkish highlighters they look super weird on my skin. If you are on the paler side the pink version might be a better option. It is all about taste really😊.

The packaging is quite simple and nothing fancy. And for the price you pay I wouldn’t expect more.

I love the shade of this highlighter. It is not super shimmery which is perfect for that daytime look, but it is buildable.

I find the Etude House Secret beam highlighter to be a little chalky but it blends easy and doesn’t look patchy on my skin. If you are like me, super dry and prefer not to use powders on top of foundation. Be sure that your foundation or BB cream has set before applying a powder on top or you will have problems with patchiness.

The highlighter contains of 6 different shades, but I do just to mix them all up and apply where I see fit.

I give this product 5/7
