Best Highlighter?

Can anyone tell me what the best highlighter they have ever used is. I'm trying to find one for a good price and one that is actually worth its price. 

Re: Best Highlighter?

I am loving the charlotte tilbury highlighter for a more luxury feel but I also love the rare beauty highlighter for the Same luxury feel but half the price 

Re: Best Highlighter?

@aawan , just realized this post is a bit old... But, in case anyone is interested:


do you prefer a certain kind of highlight?  Because I like mine fairly sparkly, while others go with a natural glow.  You can also highlight with concealer for a natural, brightening effect or bake with a setting powder to the same effect.

Re: Best Highlighter?

Thank you!!! I got the fenty beauty one and itโ€™s stunning

Re: Best Highlighter?

My favorite so far is AF (Halsey brand) one. Thereโ€™s many different shades. Iโ€™d say brightest/shiniest is the liquid ones but the stick and powder both pack a punch with a less extreme look.

Haus Labs! Literally the best one Iโ€™ve stumbled across, itโ€™s a gel powder and it melts in your skin 

Re: Best Highlighter?

Re: Best Highlighter?

Hello! I loveee the rare beauty highlighter!

Re: Best Highlighter?

Hi! My all-time favorite highlighter is the Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter Starglow. A little goes a long way, so it lasts a while. It also can be used as a glowy primer underneath face or eye makeup. Happy Thanksgiving๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿ˜„!

Re: Best Highlighter?

@aawan  It depends on what you're looking for. Are you looking for holographic? Natural glow> Both? 

For holographic I vote Kat Von D ALchemist palette. Lots of different colors in it so you get a lot of bang for your buck!

If you want a natural, subtle 'born this way' kind of glow, then the TOo Faced Love lIght highlighters are THE BEST! I have those in rose gold and gold and they are both just stunning! 

If you are looking for a little bit of both, then check out Anastasia Beverly Hills Aura GLow sets. 


Hope that helps!!!
