Highlighter Heaven

In my life time I have collected what I can only deem an unnecessary amount of highlighters. There is something about their sparkle which attracts me like a moth to flame. This has hit my bank balance hard, but on the plus side I think I’m well placed to share my favourites 🙂

Victoria Beckham Estee Lauder Modern Mercury

This is without a doubt my favorite highlighter. It is not cheap. I think I originally bought this for £50 before it went up to £55. The packaging is so luxurious and worth buying it for alone. It has a beautiful silver sheen to it which give you a glow from within look. It also lasts forever ! Big bonus as I think Estee Lauder have now discontinued it.

Ofra Blissful

This has joined the ranks as a trusty silver toned highlight. I loved that this comes in a mini format which not only makes it super affordable, but also convenient for travel. I’m dying to try the shade Rodeo Drive.

Mac Mineralise Skin Finish Highlighter in Soft and Gentle

I actually got this in duty free after my sister recommended it. This is more on the subtle side but can definitely be built up. I think I tend to gravitate towards silvery highlights. But this would suit most skin tones.

Mac Extra Dimension Skin Finish Highlighter in Show Gold

This is different from any of the other highlighters I own. This actually gives a pink gleam to those cheekbones. While not my usual look, this looks beautiful when paired with a pinky blush or if your going for more of a vibrant look. I think this would be hard to pull of day to day though.

Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife

I was dying to own this. Literally dying. Then my boyfriend got me it and I was over the moon. What I learnt unfortunaty is that gold highlights do not suit me. Maybe because I have a yellow undertone. I don’t know. This does make for a beautiful gold eyeshadow though.

ABH Amrezy 

Although this looks gold in the pan. It’s not. I feel like it’s a hybrid between gold and silver. It’s pressed in the pan in a wave and looks beautiful. Overall I love this highlight and think the two tone combination would suit a lot of skin tones.

So there you have it, a snippet of my highlighter collection. Which ones do you own?
