My Most Reached-For | Highlighters


This is going to be the first in a series showing you my most-used products in various categories. We're starting with highlighters; one of the products I personally get the most happiness out of! And before we start: yes, I do have type...

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop | £32 | Becca highlighters are just on another level in terms of formulation. I feel like I kind of take it for granted but every time I don't use one of their products for a couple of weeks then go back to them, I remember just how incredible they really are. There's no glitter at all in their highlighters, they just have the most incredible, pigmented, dewy finish. The formula itself is just so smooth and blends out effortlessly, giving you something that sits naturally on the skin but is incredibly high-impact. Champagne Pop is actually slightly different to most of my highlighters in terms of colour, however perhaps that's why it's my favourite. It's a golden-champagne colour with a peachy undertone that seems to suit so many people. (Though they occasionally restock it, the Jaclyn Hill palette isn't available as of the time of writing, but I've linked it as an individual shade.)

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Proscecco Pop | £32 | This is from the same range and still has that amazing formula and incredible finish, however Prosecco Pop is a true gold colour that looks incredible on medium to darker skin tones. I can't recommend Becca highlighters enough because there's a shade for everyone; a lot of very fair girls love the almost-white tone of Pearl and the deep bronze of Topaz looks incredible on deep  skin and there's just about everything in-between! (Ditto on the palette, however you can still get your hands on the split pan containing this shade, which I've linked.)

The Balm Mary Loumanizer | £17.49 | You may be thinking that this looks a bit under-used for a favourite product, however this is actually a repurchase (not because I used it all up, because that'd take a lifetime with how pigmented the formula is!) as I dropped and smashed my original. Yes, there's rubbing alcohol but I didn't feel the texture was *quite* the same so, given how much I was using it, thought it was worth buying again. The formula is very soft so you do have to be careful with it, however that means it blends out with no effort. Again, it's one of those shades that seems to suit a lot of skin tones. For me it's a very intense, almost icy-toned gold shade that I reach for when I'm going on a night out, however it also works during the day with a fan brush.

Laura Geller Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey | £21 | This is actually pretty similar in colour to the next product we'll be discussing, and I do think I prefer the other formula, however this is an old favourite and the compact size makes it really handy for travelling. It's a little less finely-milled than some of the other products in this post but still looks nice and natural on the skin and doesn't contain flecks of glitter. The colour is a very warm gold shade that's perfect for everyday wear as it's nothing too over-the-top.

Make Up For Ever Pro Light Fusion in 02 Gold* | £28 | Although it's a fairly recent discovery, I've been obsessed with this enough lately to put it in this post. In terms of its texture on the skin, it's incredibly traceless, however still has the pigmentation to give you an intense highlight. The formula is just beautiful and applies with no effort; I never worry about going overboard or it looking 'stripy'. It has a similar warm gold tone to the Laura Geller highlighter and also comes in a more pink version, however the shade I have is so perfect for medium and dark skin tones. I can't rave about this enough because the formula really is special, and if Make Up For Ever decide to bring out additional shades I will definitely be getting my hands on more of these!

ColourPop Cheek Shock Highlighter in Churro | $8 | This was so hard to get when it first came out! However ColourPop are restocking this tie-dye highlighter pretty regularly these days. Although you can't tell because of how much I've used it, this once had a marbled effect and contains a mixture of their permanent shades Stole the Show (a light white-gold), Wisp (a slightly cooler-toned gold shade) and Avalon (a bronze with peachy-copper undertones). The result is a slightly peachy-copper golden-bronze shade. This is a cream formulation but there's no glitter, just a gorgeous dewy finish. It blends out beautifully and I just use my fingers for this.

No7 Instant Radiance Bronzing Highlighter | £9.95 | This is another of our cream formulas and an incredibly underrated product I want to spread the word about. This also comes in a light pearly-pink shade that would look good on cooler and fairer skin but to me this golden-bronze tone is perfection. I don't think pictures even do the understated beauty of this justice! So many cream formulas are just thin, greasy and do not look good, however this gives a natural, metallic sheen with the right amount of dewiness. It's such a natural option; I love it for summer days when I just want that sun kissed glow.

  9. You seriously made me want to get that MUFE highlighter! This round-up is really helpful, Jasmine, prosecco pop is really beautiful for our skin tone but since it's limited edition, I think we can even go with the MUFE one since they're similar ;)

  12. Churro is absolutely gorgeous but it is a little too dark on me which is really sad because it's such a stunning highlighter! I think I need to purchase a Becca highlighter next year, both of them are stunning! xx

  18. Weirdly enough I'd never seen Prosecco Pop before, and I think this shade would actually suit me better than the famous Champagne Pop! It's such a beautiful gold colour. The MUFE shade is also gorgeous!

  22. My Mary Loumanizer is definitely my all time favourite, even though I dropped it and it shattered into a million pieces. I'm dying to try the Becca formulas. I'm so pale though so not sure which shade to try.
