The Top 10 Highlighters

Now that you know where to apply highlighter to achieve the desired effect, it’s time to choose the best highlighter that meets all your preferences.

Nyx Highlighter Palette


Nyx Highlighter Palette #nyxhighlighter


The Nyx Highlighter Palette with its color solution reminds of almost the whole Colourpop highlighter range. So, if you’re in doubt what shade to go for, it’s a wise decision to grab the palette. Besides, you’ll be really pleased with its quality, as the highlighter allows for easy and smooth application thanks to its buttery and soft formula. Moreso, as the shades have different hues and levels of intensity, you can play around with the various effects and finishes.

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter


Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter #fentybeauty


Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter has caused just as much of a stir in the industry as the Jeffree Star highlighter. The formula is amazing – buttery and rich while staying power largely exceeds what you’d expect for highlighter. Though, the hue can be rather controversial, as this vivid gold will flatter not everybody. However, if you apply it lightly and blend well, you’ll get a beautiful warm honey glow that looks quite natural.

If you haven’t tried the Becca highlighter, we can say with confidence that you haven’t tried the highlighter at all. It’s gained world popularity for good reason. The formula is creamy and buttery yet the finish is velvety. What’s the best thing about it is the glossy radiance it gives. But, be careful with it. Apply it lightly so that not to blind everybody.

Huda Beauty 3D Palette


Huda Beauty 3D Palette #hudahighlighter


Usually, we don’t find highlighter palettes particularly handy, as they often contain one or two shades that you hardly if ever use. However, we can’t say the same about the Huda Beauty Palette. The formula is wonderful with a nice subtle sheen. All of the four shades are equally useful and flattering, so you may not worry that any of them will be gathering dust.

MAC Strobe Cream In Pinklite

If you prefer liquid highlighter formula, then the best option for you is MAC Strobe Cream. It doesn’t make your complexion oily while giving it a flawless subtle sheen. It’s invisible on your skin, as it melts in it seamlessly. This MAC highlighter is a go-to product of many makeup artists and models, and we surely know why.

CYO Cool As A Coconut Cooling Bronzing Stick


CYO Cool As A Coconut Cooling Bronzing Stick #bronzingstick


With CYO highlighter makeup looks natural and sheen. It has a weightless gel formula with a dewy finish, which is not particularly long lasting but allows for effortless re-application. The golden shade, however, won’t probably suit very pale skin tones. Though, girls with deep complexion will find it extremely flattering.

Sleek Distorted Dreams Palette


Sleek Distorted Dreams Palette #highlighterpalette


Another highlighter palette that contains everything you need and nothing extra. The formula is very much like the Wet n Wild highlighter – powdery and creamy with a glossy finish. You might think that the colors aren’t wearable. But, as the formula is quite sheer, none of them gets off the rails. On top of that, the Sleek highlighters are very easy to apply and blend, which also adds up to the benefits of this palette.

Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter In Kitten


Stila Heaven's Hue Highlighter In Kitten #stilahighlighter


If you like the Ofra highlighter, then you’ll definitely love the Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter. In addition to attractive packaging, it provides you with a dewy and glossy touch. This highlighter is all about glow, not color. So, take care when applying the product, as it’s very easy to overdo it. However, the end result is so amazing that it’s worth the effort. Bloggers certainly choose it not for nothing.
