Highlighters are my favorite part about doing my whole makeup. There’s just something about that glow on your cheeks that makes you feel like a million bucks! I pretty much have an addiction with highlighters and I can’t get enough of them! Below I will mention my favorite highlighters that I own that I absolutely love and I think are worth adding to your makeup kit.
1. Mary-Lou Manizer By The Balm
My first ever highlighter that I bought was Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm. This retails on their website for $24 and they occasionally have sales so that’s when I bought mine. This highlighter has a champagne undertone and is very pigmented. It is my everyday highlighter and I also wear it as an eyeshadow when I’m going for a more natural look. I will most definitely be buying it again in the future!
2. Opal By Becca
I saw so many videos on YouTube raving about this highlighter. I wanted it so bad, but I just contemplated spending $38 on it even though I knew it was totally worth it. My best friend ended up actually giving it to me as a Christmas gift and I love it! The longevity is amazing and it is more on the intense side, which I’m all for. The texture of the power is very soft and pigmented so a little goes a long way. Compared to the Mary-Lou Manzier this is more of a gold highlighter.
3. Highly Waisted By ColourPop
ColourPop is a brand that I first discovered through Instagram then through reviews on YouTube. This brand is very affordable and the quality of the products are amazing! They have a total of 16 shades of highlighters and they all cost $8! Plus if you sign up for their newsletters you get $5 off your order! I got my highlighter in the shade highly waisted which is a soft golden peach with pink and gold duo chrome finishes. Would recommend this shade for my girls who are medium skin tones and darker. If you are very fair this might look more on the orange side. The texture of this is very soft and bouncy, I have nothing else like it in my collection, which makes it unique!
4. Gilded Honey by Laura Geller
This is my latest highlighter purchase and actually my favorite out of all the highlighters that I own. I LOVE this highlighter! This is a true gold highlighter that I have been craving for ever since I wanted Estee Lauder’s Heat Wave, but unfortunately did not get my hands on since it was limited edition. Then I heard that this gem was a dupe for that highlighter so I purchased it since I heard good reviews on it. It gives your cheeks an amazing glow! This retails for $26 and I highly recommend it!
