Favourite 5 Highlighters

Part 3 of my favourites series is here! I feel like highlighter is always a go to with every makeup look. You can never say no to a bright ass cheekbone!

Makeup Revolution Vivid Light – Peach Lights


This is my usual go to on an everyday. As you can see, its been battered and bruised, and doesn’t even have a lid anymore. Poor mistreated highlighter. How I did you wrong.

Kylie Cosmetics Loose Pigment Highlighters – Fiji, Tahiti, Santorini


My absolute favourite is Santorini, but I couldn’t leave the others out could I?! They’re all so stunning, and I’d head for these if I were going out. Trust me, they are BLINDING.

Jeffree Star Skin Frost – King Tut


I honestly was never expecting this to be so pigmented (see below), but DAMN JEFFREE. I’ve actually ended up using this more as an eyeshadow than as a highlighter, but girl I ain’t complaining.

MUA Undress Your Skin – Iridescent Gold


The first time I swatched this I HATED it. There was literally zero pigment which confused me since all the photos I had seen were so pigmented?! Turns out, these are similar to some ELF products, and you have to get though that ‘top layer’ before they start performing. The more of that layer I’m removing, the more I’m falling in love.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish – Lightscapade


I honestly think this was the first highlighter I ever brought. It’s not as ‘in your face’ as I like to go now, but I do grab this if I’m looking for something subtle.


What’s your favourite highlighter?

    I have Jeffree Star’s Peach Goddess and I also use it as an eyeshadow as well as highlighter!

    I’m not sure if you got to see the email I sent you last week about the collab!

      It’s incredible right?! And I don’t think I got it 😔 Could you send it over again please sweet? x

        Yes, I love his highlighters and am a huge fan of his lip velours! Okay, I’ll resend!

    Every single one of these shades are insanely gorgeous! Love how sparkly the kylie ones are! & love the colour of peach lights

      I always want to wear the Kylie ones, but they’re so blinding that I think they’re not really okay for going to get the food shopping haha! I love them so much though! Think they’re definitely my favourite!

    I love Makeup Revolution. I recently started using their setting spray and it works very well for the price. Have you tried Colourpop? Their highlighters are insanely good. I even use them on my eyes as well. I’m older and the highlighter doesn’t accentuate wrinkles. Love it.

      I really want to try out colour pop, but since I live in the UK, its a bit of a nightmare with the custom charges though! Think I’m going to have to bite the bullet and go all out soon!

        OH! Bummer! It really is such a great brand and super affordable. I know they are working to make international shipping more accessible. Hoping soon for you!

    All these look stunning! I really want to try those Kylie Cosmetics ones, but the shipping here is SO expensive 😫 xx

      My best friend brought me the vacation collection for my birthday, but since it was over a certain amount, shipping was free! It was the custom charge that caught me out! An extra £50 on top wasn’t a nice surprise! xx

    I’ve been on the hunt for a good highlighter so I’m very thankful for your great post!

    GLOW UP! Where did you get the Jefree Star from!?xxxx

    Non of my Revolution highlighters have a lid anymore either! And you’ve just sold me on the kylie and Jeffrey ones… not that I need anymore 🙈 I recently wrote a post on highlighters too!

      I’m glad it’s not just me haha! I swear I’m always breaking/losing lids to things! Let me know how you get on with the Kylie and Jeffree ones, and I’ll check out your post now!
