No shock here, I LOVE highlighter. it’s the last thing I need to buy but the first thing I look for! Here are 3 new ones I’ve tried that are perfect for that summer, sun kissed glow!
Makeup Revolution Highlight in Golden Goddess. This is a drugstore priced brand – around $7 and I got it at Ulta. I was so excited to see it in the store because it says online only on the Ulta website and it’s not in drugstores. This definitely rivals some of my higher end highlighters. I’m really happy with it and super obsessed at the moment! It’s has an almost light yellow / gold duo chrome to it. It’s super flattering on the skin and blends out really nice. It literally looks like a ray of sunshine on your face!
Jeffree Star skin frost in Siberian Gold. My best friend/ roommate sent this too me and it’s one of the nicest things someone has done for me!! I love it!! This highlighter is massive and it feels substantial in your hand. Jeffree Star is big on substantial packaging and hardy products so it’s no surprise there. I agree completely and love that! It’s a rose gold color which is my favorite and perfect for summer and tan skin. It has a creamy texture and dries like a powder so there is very little fall out. I like to apply it with a synthetic brush or with my fingers. This would work great as eyeshadow because it’s super pigmented.
Maybelline Master Chrome highlight in Molten Gold. I’m gonna go out there and say this is the best drug store highlighter at the moment. It’s a buttery, powder like consistency so you will experience some fall out. But tap off your brush and go for it because it’s $7 and SO worth it! It’s super pigmented and gives some serious glow!! I have yet to find a drugstore powder highlight that is this intense. (maybe wet and wild but I haven’t tried those!) This is a gold color, hence the name and it’s super flattering on the skin. Again perfect for a summer skin to add some highlight to a tan! It reminds me of a Becca highlighter and it doesn’t get much better than those. I think they will continue to come out with some new colors but for now I think this is best for (maybe) light / tan / medium skin. Not pale, sorry!
