Glowing My Way Through 2018 // My Highlighter Collection

I seem to go through stages of being completely obsessed with highlighters, to being completely disinterested in them. I'm either all about the glow or all about a super matte look, there's no in-between. For this reason, my highlighter collection is relatively small, I have a nice mixture of shades which suit my skin tone and a variety of high end and high street products. 

JEFFREE STAR SKIN FROST // ICE COLD
I bought this quite a while ago on a bit of a whim, and this is the most expensive highlighter I own. I decided to go with one of the more popular shades, 'ice cold', mainly because I thought it would suit my complexion the best. A little goes a long way with this product, and I feel that it looks the best on your nose or cupids bow. I use a fan brush to blend it out and it produces a really lovely glow. I like it because it's not overly glittery and when using a fan brush it's not too extreme.

 COLOURPOP SUPER SHOCK SHADOW // LUNCH MONEY
This is one of my more recent purchases and as you can see, it's got a lot of use out of it. I've never tried a formula like this one, it's really creamy and buttery and looks so gorgeous on. It blends really well and this shade is so pretty, it's like a light champagne colour. It's not overly glittery it just has this gorgeous sheen to it. I love building this one up because it just looks like you have a really healthy, dewy glow. It's so affordable too which is a bonus!


TANYA BURR LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER 
Sadly I bought this from one of the Tanya Burr Christmas sets, so it's no longer available. I'll leave a link below to where you can purchase something similar though. I think this highlighter is a really great all-rounder, as it's perfect for applying on your body as well as your face. This one is quite glittery so I only really use this on special occasions, and it's this really pretty golden shade. The only problem with this is that I find it quite hard to blend, so I find the best way to apply it is by gently dabbing it over your face, or using a dense brush or beauty blender if you want to apply it on your body. 

 TOPSHOP HIGHLIGHTER // HORIZON
I wasn't too sure about this product when I first picked it up, but it is a really gorgeous bronze shade. On swatches and in the packaging it does look really dark, however when applied with a fan brush it just creates the most beautiful golden highlight which is so pretty if you're going for a deeper, more bronzed look. This is really shimmery and not too glittery, but the only issue I have with it is that it doesn't last all day which is quite sad.


There are so many other highlighters that I would love to try, I absolutely love the look of the Natasha Denona Diamond & Blush highlighter set as it looks so gorgeous, but it's very pricey. I also love the look of the Hourglass highlighters and the Jouer Powder highlighters, which are a bit more affordable. 


I don't really have a favourite out of my highlighters as I love them all for different reasons, and each one goes with different looks. The one I find myself reaching for everyday is the Colourpop Lunch Money highlighter, just because I love the natural, dewy glow it leaves you with. I'd love to know what your favourite highlighters are, do you prefer a more subtle look or something a bit more extreme?
