One of my favorite things to do is to organize my makeup collection! Last year, I went through my highlighter collection to declutter and today I want to share with you a list of the best highlighters! I’ve included high end and drugstore options as you should glow no matter what your budget is!
NYX Away We Glow Highlighter
Best For: A duo chrome finish, portability, drug store price
The only liquid highlighter on my list is the NYX Away We Glow Highlighter. This is an unassuming little product that really packs a punch! There is a duochrome cast to this that gives kind of an ethereal glow. The shade Liquid Prism has a pearly pink sheen and I find this format really portable for travel and touch up.
Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Rose Gold
Best For: A solid powder highlight option from the drugstore
I find rose gold highlighters to be very flattering on the skin and this Maybelline highlighter is a great pick from the drugstore! The formula is super soft and picks up easily on a makeup brush. There’s a bit of pink and the gold will peek through when your cheeks hit the light.
Guerlain Meteorites Pearl Dust Palette
Best For: A lit from within glow
I just received this highlighter a few months ago so it didn’t even make it to my highlighter collection post. At a hefty $80, this is a piece of art to look at and use. The Guerlain Meterorites pearls are a cult classic and this is a powder version of that product. I’m pretty sure I gasped the first time I used this product as the glow was so angelic and natural. All 3 shades are flattering on my skin tone and I find it looks beautiful in person and on camera.
Clinique Flower Pop
Best For: Looking pretty on your vanity and a subtle glow
Another new addition for me is the Clinique Flower Pop highlighter. Clinique packaging is usually pretty simple but I”m obsessed with the pretty embossed detail of this highlighter. The flower pop range of Clinique blushes is very popular and I like that they expanded into highlighters. The formula is silky smooth and provides a soft luminous glow.
Lancome Dual Finish Highlighter
Best For: In your face glow
I clearly love rose gold highlighters as here is another one! The Lancome Dual Finish Highlighter has been one of my favorite highlighters for years! I even hit pan on this! This one is more bold and metallic and a great pick if you want a stronger highlight that will bring out your cheekbones.
