Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

As some of you may already know, I'm a bit of a highlighter hoarder. Companies love to shell out pretty-looking highlighters, and I get suckered in every time without fail. That said, if all of my highlighters were to one day disappear, these are the ones I'd be repurchasing in a heartbeat!

 


(Clockwise starting with the Chantecaille)

-Chantecaille Rose Petals highlighter: This is a very subtle highlighter, and I can see it working beautifully on paler to lighter skintones. I like to pair this with my cooler toned pink blushes. This was so popular it sold out last holidays, but thankfully, Chantecaille has repromoted it this holidays Smiley Happy

-Jill Stuart Charming Feline: I strictly use this as a powdered undereye highlighter/setting powder, and it does an amazing job in ensuring that my concealers do not crease.

-Laura Mercier Spellbound: Laura Mercier does highlighters extremely well, and this beauty of a highlighter is no exception. It pulls slightly on the beige side, so I like pairing this with neutral and bronzey blushes.

-Becca Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal: This highlighter is not for the faint of heart! It's the secret to perfecting the JLo glow, and it's best achieved with a large fluffy brush. One caveat: use a light hand!

-Chanel Poudre Signee Illuminating Powder: The disappearing CC logo is a good indicator of how much I love this illuminator! I like to think of this as Albatross' less dramatic, more finely-milled younger sister. I love wearing this with blushes with running gold shimmer.

 

Enable me away, BTers! Smiley Wink

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

Is it?  Now I wish I hadn't bought the microsmooth luminizer in star dust.  Or maybe I wish I hadn't bought Albatross because that is pricier.  Maybe I will return Albatross.  I always feel bad for returning in situations other than defective/disliked products.  Decisions decisions.

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

I even find the texture of Sephora's Star Dust to be softer than Albatross, if that helps! Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

Ooooh, I need to add the Becca one back to my loves list I think. Spoiledbrat has been convincing me on the mew Marc Jacobs one.

 

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

The Marc Jacobs highlighter is pretty subtle but stunning nonetheless! I hope my swatches have convinced you that you need it! Smiley Wink

 

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

Oh yum.  Please come quickly UPS!

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

I probably will lol! I like that there's different shades. Kinda been waiting for the bronzer to come back in stock to buy together Smiley Wink They should make a little palette!

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

OMG yes, please! Why not throw a mini lippie of the Marc Jacobs Showstopper lipstick while he's at it, right? Smiley Happy Apparently, people have been stealing that Showstopper lipstick tester at my local Sephora, so the store has been out of stock.

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

YAY! thank you thank you for the swatches. I was actually considering taking it off my love list but now it's definitely staying. I have a shiny face, so I like subtle better since I can also use it for highlighter under the brow.

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

You're very welcome! It's truly a beauty, and hopefully it makes its way to your cart soon Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Highlighters!

I looooooove highlighters!  My favorite so far is the Lorac one that came with bronzer in the Unzipped palette.  I also have Becca liquid in Opal, Benefit Watts Up, three different Smashbox soft lights, and a Stila liquid highlighter in pink. 

 

I have started using the Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre 4-piece set for eyes, it says you can use on cheeks too but it's pretty sparklie, I haven't tried it.
