Highlight Delight – The Must Haves

What is summer without highlight, I ask you 😛 I know, I know – I have been all about the highlighter lately but I just find that it is one of my must have products before I walk out the door. If my skin is looking a little bleh or I am feeling less than awesome, a little highlight peps me up. Here are my top 4 highlighters, I don’t know why I picked 4 but someone recently pointed out that I buy items in groups of 3 and now I am worried that I have some obsessive trait. More on this later, to the highlight:

Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm: This stuff is very cool, the balm texture makes it easy to work with and it has decent staying power. A few smudges will do you but it can definitely be layered on for an extreme highlight. I apply with my finger tips to any place that needs brightening and it works like a charm.

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in fireball: I love all of these highlighters and I transition between favourites on a daily basis. They are buttery, easy to blend out, last all day and aren’t total glitter bombs. I am loving fireball right now due to the colour being enough that I can use it in place of a blusher and still get glowy, highlighted skin.

FlowerBeauty Chubby in pearl shimmer: All of these chubby sticks are awesome – there are blushers and bronzers as well. The formula is very creamy and the stick form makes it effortless to apply. Of all my highlighters, this one imparts the best dew-like finish. Definitely recommend, they are very affordable and simply lovely.

theBalm Mary – Lou Manizer: This one makes a few fav lists and no wonder, the glow is one of the best I have seen from a powder highlighter. It doesn’t get cakey and again is not a glitter bomb. The champagne shade is very versatile and can be used as a little shimmer for your peepers too. Out of all the Manizer sisters, she is my fav!

There you have them, 4 (not 3) of my favourite highlighters – all are pretty versatile and worth a pick up if you are looking for a little more summer glow.

  1. I am far too obsessed with highlighter for someone with an already oily type skin haha. I keep seeing the Flower chubbies in a lot of posts with positive reviews. Where do you buy them? I’ve heard they were at Walmart?

    • Haha! Me too 😁 Yes – they are exclusively at Wal-Mart and retail is roughly 9$ or so. Definitely a fair amount of product for the cost and good quality!
