Hello again beautiful people!
Hope you are all enjoying your Friday so far!
ANYWAY, I love highlighters that are pigmented enough to blind my enemies as well those highlighters that look fairly natural and subtle. This post will be a mix of both, as these are my top 5 favorites.
Let’s start right away! 🙂
#5: NYX Cosmetics
Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Lavender Lust
This one is the only cool-toned highlighter that I own. I love this one so much because it’s different than the ones I have, it’s creamy, pigmented, and it’s perfect for the cold season. I usually get a lot of use out of this during winter! 🙂
#4: Essence Cosmetics
Pure Nude Highlighter in Be My Highlight
This one looks a bit dark in the pan, but it’s actually very subtle. I think the name is perfect because it truly is a nude highlight. It has very little shimmer, but just enough to make your skin glow. I love wearing this highlighter when I want a no makeup look and sometimes I’ll layer it on top of liquid highlighters for a more intense highlight.
#3: NYX Cosmetics
Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sun Beam
This one is best described as a pale pink pearl, but it’s also VERY pigmented. It’s such a gorgeous shade and when it catches the light it’s even more beautiful! I love using this alone, on top of my foundation, and even mixed with my liquid foundation for radiant looking skin.
#2: Urban Decay
Afterglow 8-hour Highlighter in Sin
I received this little sample in my Ipsy bag and I fell in love. It’s so finely milled and gorgeous! I already have a few other champagne shades but this one is by far my favorite! It’s definitely very pigmented and I love how buildable it is.
#1: Smashbox x Casey Holmes
Spotlight Palette in Pearl
This one I received in a giveaway from the lovely Janice from My Life in Medicine Blog. It is stunning and the shades are SOOOOOOOOO buttery smooth! I also love that this palette has three different shades to choose from. I’ve used all three and I think my favorite one is Crank It Up (middle shade) because it’s a nice shimmery neutral pink. I still have yet to layer them but I don’t doubt that they would still look just as gorgeous!
And now onto what everyone wants to see:
