Top 5 | Blinding Highlighters

I love a bold highlighter.  It might not look natural, but I LOVE IT and I want to look totally glowy.  Today I am showing you my top five blindingly bright highlighters.  These highlighters might start out subtle, but I like to pack them on for maximum effect!  


I like to apply my highlighter to the tops of my cheekbones, the tip of my nose, and a tiiiiny bit just above my top lip.  Like I said, I like to pack them on, but you can apply them subtly if you don’t want to look like a sparkly disco ball.

Here they are!

MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle


This is a cult-favorite golden pale peach powder highlighter that is chock full of shimmer and tiny microglitter.  The glitter doesn’t show up on my face, it just shows up as a sheen.  This is buildable and blends really nicely.  I actually put this in a Products I Regret Buying post a while back, but I tried it again and I have really grown to love it!

Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops in Morning Light


This product is a liquid highlighter that is pure shimmer pigment.  You can actually mix this with your foundation for a beautiful glow, or you can just dab some on your face for an instant glow effect.  The color of this is a gold champagne, and it doesn’t come off glittery, but gives that wet shimmer glow look.  It is beautiful, and a little bit goes a long way!

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl in Gilded Honey


This powder highlighter is my favorite highlight of all time.  First off, the little swirl pattern is so cute, but the product inside is such a soft creamy powder, and blends so nicely.  The color is a shimmery golden honey color that is so glowy and so pretty. 

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Quartz

This color is an icy silvery pink that is so so pretty and fresh.  Becca’s highlighting powders never disappoint.  The packaging is just beautiful on this too.  It was limited edition, but here is a very similar alternative if you are into pink highlight.

Colourpop Pearlized Highlighter in Lunch Money


This is a soft cream highlight that dries down to a powder finish quickly.  The color is a very pale light gold, but with tons of shimmer and adds such a pretty sheen to the skin.  I like to just use my fingers to apply this one.

I noticed that the swatches above didn’t do them justice, so I went outside and snapped a few pics in the sunlight.

Gahhh.  So pretty.
