I have a lot of highlighters… like A LOT of them. So I thought I’d share the ones I have, and which are my favourite!
Anastasia Beverly Hills X Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit
I love this kit! I think I could survive just on this glow kit if I HAD to bin the rest of my highlighters. Each highlight is BLINDING AF and I love the colour range. The last highlighter (143) is a bit dark for me, but works as a really nice bronze eyeshadow. Each highlighter is super smooth like buttah.
Swatches are shown under natural light. From top to bottom: Kitty Kat, Forever Young, Daydream, Forever Lit, Glo Getter and 143.
Colourpop Super Shock Cheek and Pressed Powder Duo
The Colourpop Super Shock Cheek highlighters are very unusual as they aren’t powdery. They kinda feel spongey and are best used with a finger or a beauty sponge. I use the shades Wisp and Churro for a more natural glow. The shade Whipped is a bit too pink and shiny for me. The Knockout Pressed Powder Duo is something I use almost everyday. The blush is nice and the highlighter is super golden, and makes your cheek look almost wet.
Swatches from top to bottom: Like to Watch, Churro, Whipped, Wisp
Becca highlighters are more on the pricey side, but they are really soft, blinding and blendable. Since I’m a fan of Jaclyn Hill, I bought the shade Champagne Pop, and got the shade Opal in a Sephora Favourites set. I really like how they just melt into the skin for a “lit-from-within” kind of intense glow.
Top to Bottom: Opal, Champagne Pop
Miscellaneous Liquid/Stick Highlighters
I dont use liquid or stick highlighters very often as I find them a bit tedious to blend out. Two of the ones I have from Benefit came in sets, and hence aren’t full size. I really dislike the High Beam one, as it gives a white cast and just doesnt blend very well. I like the Watts Up highlighter, but only when I put it on my cupid’s bow, as it doesn’t blend very well on the cheeks. I also have a mini version of the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight. I LOVE IT. I only have a small version as it came in a Sephora Favourites set, but you only need 3 drops to make your cheek bone POP. They’ve only just FINALLY released full sized versions in Sephora Malaysia, but they are soooo expensive (RM199). I really want to get more of them though!
Swatches from top to bottom: High Beam, Watts Up and Moonlight
So I didn’t do a good job of saying which are the best (because I love them all) but I would definitely say the Anastasia BH X Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit is essential, and definitely lives up to the hype!
