Liquid And Cream Highlighters

Liquid And Cream Highlighters

I am a highlighter junkie. I love all different kinds and colors, it is one of the most fun parts of doing my make up. That being said, I lean more towards powder highlighters because they are just much easier to use. I have a few liquid and cream highlighters, so I though I would give a quick review for each! Let’s get started…

Benefit’s Watts Up! $30.00

I have a few of these mini sample sized Watt’s Up, and they come with so much product that I haven’t needed to buy the full size yet! I really love this because once it dries, it becomes almost like a powder on your face, so it doesn’t look like you have a random wet streak on your face. The color is really beautiful and can be subtle or built up to be very intense.

Benefit’s High Beam $26.00

I got a mini sample of this stuff from Sephora once, and immediately bought the full size. I’m not crazy about the packaging as it looks like a nail polish bottle (with an applicator to match) but it is a substantial amount of product so I can look past it. I love adding a drop of this to my foundation to add some luminosity and dewiness. It is a very intense highlight if applied directly to the cheekbones, but it dries quickly and blends really nicely.

Loreal True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator $12.99


When Loreal came out with these, I bought all three colors, but only kept this one in Golden. I don’t have anything else in my collection quite like this, it is such a warm gold sheen. I like to use this in the summer over my bronzer for that extra glowy pop.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured $38.00


Becca knows what they are doing when it comes to highlighters. While everyone was busy fawning over the pressed powder highlights, my mom picked up this for me on a whim and I’m so happy she did. This is the poured version of the ever popular shade ‘Opal.’ It is a stunning white gold cream that blends so beautifully into the skin. The best part about this is that while it is thick, it doesn’t drag on the skin and pull away the foundation underneath it.

Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer $22.95


Jelly Pong Pong is the best name ever, hands down. This highlight on the other hand, is not. I got this in an ipsy bag a while ago, and have barely touched it since. The color right out of the tube is so stunning and unique. It appears to be a beautiful bronzy, coppery rose gold. The fairytale ends as soon as you attempt to blend it though. As you can see in the swatch, it gets really patchy almost immediately. I am going to try to add a tiny drop to my primer or foundation and see if it fairs any better.

Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow $15.95

While the Gossamer was a disappointment, this product is a home run. I got this in a Boxycharm a few months ago and have been loving it. It is such an ethereal bright white gold, and it can look not intense or subtle if really blended out. It doesn’t strip away the foundation underneath at all and dries down quickly.

So that’s it for liquid highlighters. Let me know your favorites in the comments. Thanks for reading!

Glowingly yours,
