Best Drugstore Highlighters


Who doesn’t want to glow? I know I do. For me, that’s the best part of in the makeup process. I like to accentuate my features, but who ever said you have to break the bank to glow like a Goddess?!

I have several high end highlighters that I love, but most recently I’ve picked up more drugstore that are just as good, if not better. I realized it once I noticed that I have been reaching out for these more often than not. So, I had to share my excitement!! One is a more recent purchase, but instantly I was amazed and in love with the formula. It is the Wet N’ Wild Coloricon Rainbow Highlighter in the shade Bronze Over the Rainbow. Now, that one is a Limited Edition, I suggest you get your hands on it before it’s gone. It’s amazing!!! It is currently on sale on Wet N’ Wilds website and on Ulta’s website for $5.99. The other highlighters are the Makeup Revolution Strobe Highlighter in the shade Moon Glow Lights, $6; Wet N’ Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals, $4.99; J.Cat Beauty You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in White Goddess, $9; Elf Cosmetics Baked Highlighter in Apricot Glow, $4 and Milani Cosmetics Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Daylight, $10. (Swatches below)They all have a different formula which makes their finish different and unique.  Some kick off a bit of powder, but once you dust it off the end results are great. Most, have a creamy soft formula. Milani and Wet N’ Wild have the soft buttery formula with intense highlight pay off, while the Elf Cosmetics and J.Cat have a more powdery texture, they are both buildable to the intensity you want. Again, as previously mentioned, the Wet N’ Wild Limited Edition one surprised me with how intense it is. It looks as though my cheeks are wet, but it does have fine specs of glitter, in case you don’t like that, I don’t mind it at all.

So there you have it, an array of options, all at really good prices. Get your summer glow with one of these options!!
