HIGHLIGHTER COLLECTION & SWATCHES

Wednesday, 10 August 2016



Highlighters are one of my favorite makeup products. They have the ability to make your complexion glow and make dull skin appear brighter. As a makeup collector i have not got a big collection of highlighters (surprisingly) but i find that it is big enough for me to get good use out of each product.

If you read my blog post on my most recent Mac Haul then you know Soft & Gentle is a recent addition to my collection. It is a soft pink champagne shade with gold and silver shimmer and you can sweep it across your cheekbones for a light sheen or build it up for a more obvious highlight.


Becca highlighters are raved about for good reason, they are highly pigmented but also blend so easily into the skin and give a beautiful glow to your complexion. Moonstone is a pale gold shade and as it is highly shimmery a little will go a long way with this product.


This Kevyn Aucion celestial powder is one of my most loved highlighters as it is a finely milled powder with very smooth shimmer. It is a champagne nude shade and is flattering on all age groups and all skin tones as it wont settle into any fine lines and adds a subtle luminosity to your complexion giving you that lit-from-within look.


I am not a huge fan of liquid highlighters as they have never appealed to me. As with liquid highlighters you can apply under or mix with your foundation but i find if i apply on top of my base it removes my foundation. Bare light is a champagne gold shimmer shade and it is a very runny lotion like sheer illuminator.


This is only a sample of the No7 Skin illuminator as i got it out of my beauty advent calendar and i have no idea of the shade name. This sample has not been used except to swatch for this post but the boots website tells me you can wear it as an illuminating primer or mix with your foundation.


The Collection Highlighter is a champagne shade that can be worn under or over foundation.I like that it is a in a stick formula so you can draw where you would want to highlight and blend it in with either your fingertips or a brush. It is a very subtle highlight that can be worn sheer or be built up and would compliment many skintones.

  2. I don't have Moonstone because it's too pale for me, but I love BECCA highlighters and have Champagne Pop, Opal and the highlighters in the BECCA palette! I've heard great things about Soft & Gentle as well
