My Top 5 Highlighters

Hello my pumpkins and welcome back!

I hope you all had a great week-end. Today, I am sharing with you my top 5 highlighters, so the 5 highlighters that I really love and that I recommend you to buy. All of them have the same gold undertone because that’s how I like my highlighters to be, I just think gold complements my skin better.

Don’t forget to check my previous post. It is my review on the new drama film ‘Wonder’. [Click here]

#5 Born To Glow Illuminator by NYX – Gleam 8$


I really love this highlighter because unlike all the other liquid highlighters I own, this one doesn’t look streaky or patchy on me. It blends in perfectly well with the rest of my makeup and gives this natural, subtle dewy look that I love. I usually wear this highlighter when I don’t wear any makeup or for an everyday no-makeup makeup look.

[the one in the photo is my sister’s cause I actually finished mine and got rid of it :p]

#4 Strobe Of Genius Illuminating palette by NYX 19$


From this palette, I really love the golden shade on the left. Even though it is a light shade, it looks amazing on my skin tone and blends very well with the rest of my makeup without looking patchy. It is subtle but you can build it up to make it look blinding. This powder gives a more shimmery glow rather than a dewy glow.

#3 Skin Frost by Jeffree Star – King Tut 29$


This highlighter might not be everyone’s cup of tea because it’s actually a skin frost hence it’s super pigmented and is super blinding. I use this highlighter [which is actually my sister’s not mine but I’ve used it a couple of times on me and on her] for a night out or a party. I love how it looks, it doesn’t look too rough on the skin yet is still super blinding and glowy.

#2 Super Shock Highlighter by ColourPop – Wisp 8$ 


I am sure most of you already know that ColourPop is my favorite makeup brand because of how cheap and amazing their products are and this highlighter is no exception. I really love the formula of this highlighter, it’s a cream but sets as a powder, it has an amazing pigmentation, it gives you a blinding natural dewy glow [it is not shimmery] and you can wear it on a daily basis cause it can also look super subtle.

By the way, I ordered a new highlighter from Colourpop and I am so excited to receive it!!!!

#1 MegaGlow Highlighter Powder by Wet N Wild – Precious Petals 5$ 


I got this highlighter from Turkey and I absolutely adore it. It’s pink with gold shimmers which makes it wearable on my skin. This highlighter is super pigmented and the finish is amazing, it is neither dewy nor shimmery, it’s like in between and I love it. Also, with this highlighter you can either go with a blinding glow or a super blinding glow, if you see what I mean!

Here are swatches of the 5 highlighters

    I definitely agree with you on the whole gold highlighter front; my skin is olive toned so i need that warmth 🙂 These all look brilliant; I may have to try some out xx

    I love a good highlighter! I don’t have many, but I see that I prefer a creme formula as I can work these to look a bit more natural. Great post!

    I’d really like to try Jeffree Star skin frosts but I’m unsure if I will like the super glowy look or not.. x

      If you like blinding highlighters then you will adore his skin frost!!! Plus the highlighter is HUGE! Like it’s def worth the price!

    I’m with you on Wet’n’Wild Megaglo being the best highlighter! The colour is so pigmented and stunning. Plus even though they’re a drugstore brand, they’re also cruelty free which is just icing on top 😀

    I see you have a few affordable/drugstore favorites…you should DEFFF try the Maybelline master chrome if you’re into drugstore highlights! I did a review of it and it’s AMAZING…I haven’t touched a single high end highlighter since buying it. So good!

      Thanks so much!! I wish i could but i am trying to buy only from Cruelty-free brands and maybelline is not :(( sad but true
