Highlighter Collection

dsc04043

Okay,it’s not much of a collection since I only have 3. I’m limiting myself from purchasing more because I know I wouldn’t be able to  go through highlighters fast enough to need more. But I do love ’em! Just the act of putting on a highlight lifts my mood and makes me feel all light and sparkly!

Essence Pure Nude Highlighter

Definitely a YouTube-made-me-buy-it product! Bought this because KathleenLights raved about it, of course.  Although not wow-ed about it, I like it for days when I don’t feel like beaming too much. It doesn’t look like it would do much on the pan. But when swatched, it’s a smooth and natural highlight. The texture is like a matte sheen without being too metallic. It’s for days when you want a natural healthy glow. It’s not glittery in any way which is a plus. Another big plus is the price! I got this for only C$4.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart. It stays on pretty well but found that it didn’t last the entire day. One thing I also noticed about this highlighter is that it doesn’t accentuate all the texture and pores on my face. I found that highlighters that are very metallic could potentially do that. This particular highlighter didn’t highlight things that I didn’t want to be highlighted. (if that makes sense. lol)

PROS:

  • Natural highlight
  • Doesn’t highlight the bumpy things on mi face
  • Very affordable
  • Not glittery

CONS:

  • Not as strong of a highlight
  • Not as metallic

ColourPop Super Shock Highlighter in Wisp

dsc04052

The Super Shock highlighters are more creamy and buttery to touch. It is geared towards the more metallic type of shine. It could be intense but it seems to go on lightly when blended out. I don’t reach for it too often because of the fact that I have to use my fingers to apply it. This colour, Wisp, is a bit too dark for my skin tone that it could be used as a peachy blush. This is probably the most intense highlight out of the three and it lasts all day. I’m the kind of person who touches my face all the time. I always see a transfer of glitter on my fingers and/or my clothes but the highlight is still on and beaming!

PRICE: US$8 (C$10 – C$11)

PROS:

  • Smooth, buttery, creamy
  • Intense highlight
  • Lasts all day

CONS:

  • Too dark for my skin
  • Application method

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop

dsc04047

Champagne Pop one is by far my favourite of all three. The consistency so buttery to touch and applies smoothly. It’s like a hybrid of a cream and a powder highlight. As you can probably tell, the pan has been wildly pressed on. I already noticed it cracking so I’m trying to prevent “accidents” by pressing it all back to the pan. I have already seen a lot of posts about this highlighter breaking easily because of the formula. I would never want that to happen to me! With that being said, I always store mine facing up and I never travel with it. Any method of application works great. The formula is good and provides a high shine that lasts throughout the day!

PROS:

  • Smooth and buttery
  • Super reflective and metallic
  • Lasts all day

CONS:

  • Price: C$46 ugh why is too expensive!
  • Breaks easily
  • Not travel friendly
