Estee Lauder Double Wear Brush-On Glow BB Highlighter Review, Swatches and Photos

This spring, Estee Lauder introduces a new member to its already popular Double Wear line, Brush-On Glow BB Highlighter.

Packaged in a gold pen design with a brush applicator, the Double Wear Brush-On Glow BB highlighter looks and works a lot like YSL Touche Eclat. There are 8 shades available in both cool and warm undertones and 2W Light Medium, a light color with yellow undertones, turned out to be a good match for my NC30 skin.

The highlighter utilizes a Photo Optic Technology that claims to brighten shadows, erase the look of fatigue and highlight facial features. While I did not get why this was labled a BB product, the formula did feel very creamy and moisturizing on my dry undereye area. The coverage was medium and better than Touche Eclat. With just one stroke, it managed to instantly brighten up my eye area and cover up at least half of my circles. It also worked great as a highlighter down the nose and on top of the cheekbones.
