Review: Etude House Play 101 Stick in No.10

Ever since strobing became popular online, highlighters have suddenly become the "it" product for most beauty lovers. I, for a fact, generally do not love highlighters because they tend to make my face look rough and my pores more prominent. However, over the last year, I found exceptions to this. Last year,  I discovered highlighting products that made my dry skin look glowing and healthy. Thanks to youtube, I found HG products that are worth the hype. On my last trip to Etude House, I saw the newest Etude House Play 101 Sticks. These came in a variety of shades - blush and bronzer shades. This also came in a foundation stick form that can double as a concealer. These sticks are multi function products that works for the eyes, face and cheeks. Out of all the ETude House PLay 101 Stick, one shade stood out from the rest. That is the shade #10. This is a highlighter. There is also a contour duo which I am thinking of  buying after watch Pony's video. Here is the video I am referring to. Pony is one of my fave asian youtuber.

 Shade No.10 is a light champagne highlighter. The color looks good on my yellow skin tone and gives off that pop of radiance on my skin. Here is the product when swatched at the back of my hand. It has very tiny almost unnoticeable shimmers. What I love about this product is that it applies easily with the use of fingers. This blends well with my liquid foundation and even concealer for a more subdued sheen. This can be used underneath foundation or on top of foundation or blush. Just make sure that your base products are not too heavy because this product has a tendency to cake on thick and not well blended bases. Application with the use of fingers makes blending easier and reduces the tendency of the product to cake. 
 The staying power is surprisingly good especially when worn in cold weather or inside an air conditioned room. I do normally set this with a powder highlighter. It gives off a glowing and dewy finish when applied. Look how pretty it looks on my cheeks!!! I love it super!!!
I really really love this product because it makes my dull skin look healthy. This product is very handy and easy to use with mere finger blending/application. It works well as an overall highlighter - cheeks, nose bridge, cupid's bow and brow bone. This also works well when mixed with foundation or concealer for a more natural overall glow. 

I seriously want to try the Stick Blushes, Foundation and the blush/bronzer duo. This costs around 848 pesos.

What do you think of this product? Is it a Yay or a Nay?
