Highlighters Collection

Since highlighters became a thing, I’ve been in the hunt for the perfect one for me. I have tried several, but with my skin tone (medium/dark olive) it is not easy to find one that will really stand out.

I am presenting you here the ones that I have tried and at the end I will tell you which ones are my favorites and why.


  1. Sculpting trio contour – Younique
  2. Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle – MAC
  3. Star Powder #946 – Make Up Forever
  4. Naked Flushed in Strip – Urban Decay
  5. Tawny Shimmer Brick and Lip Kit – Bobby Brown
  6. High Beam – Benefit
  7. Gold Bronzing Powder – Bourjois
  8. Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra’s Kiss – Sleek Make UP
  9. Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette – NYX

Now, if I have to choose a top 3, it will be like this:

  • Soft and Gentle by MAC because it really stands out beautifully and works will almost all skin tones
  • Bobby Brown’s shimmer brick because it blends so well and looks very natural, still you can see the glow
  • And the NYX strobe palette, because of the great selection of colors

The other ones are good products, but there is nothing really special about them.

I hope you find this useful and please, let me know which ones are your favorite highlighters, I am willing to try some new ones!
