Best Highlighter for under $30?

What is the best, blinding highlighter for under $30? (If you know of a pressed/loose pigment or shadow that works, I'm open to that as well!)




RE: Best Highlighter for under $30?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy $28, Flower beauty highlighter trio $14 at Ulta, and Ofra Rodeo Drive (or any of their shades you’re drawn to) $24.50 after discount code on or $29 at Ulta. Hope this helps! 🙂

A pretty blinding highlighter that I recently tried is the FENTY BEAUTY by RihannaDiamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil. I also like to wear it on top of a clear gloss for added shine.

Unfortunately, that one is out of my price range. Do you know of any others?


Thank you!

Hi, @allieclarkk


Becca's pressed shimmering skin perfectors are my favorite highlighters. Although the full-size ones are over your budget, the brand does offer mini versions for $19. 


Here are all of the shades that are available as minis: Rose Gold, Vanilla Quartz, Moonstone, Opal, and my absolute favorite, Champagne Pop.

I hope this helps!

@allieclarkk Check out a palette from the Sephora Collection. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Illuminate Paletteis on sale for just $14. I’m planning to pick it up, and I have another highlight/blush palette and it’s soooo pigmented and impressive. 

Re: Best Highlighter for under $30?

If you're looking for a BLINDING highlight and don't mind a small quantity, I recommend the Makeup Forever Star Lit Powder in the shade Ivory (if you've got a light to fair completion) I also find that the Tarte highlighter in Stunner is quite good as well, but maybe not as blinding.
