Best of 2018
Best Highlighters (over $ 15)
As I mentioned in the previous article, the highlighters had another good year with a multitude of options, from the most affordable to the most luxurious. My initial list of “favorites” had more than 40 shades in the middle / upscale category, list that I had cut into a simple list of 20 favorites.
Make Up For Ever Star diamond powders may not have been well evaluated, but I absolutely loved them as cheek highlighters (that’s where they got the best results) without supplements). I manage to search again and again when I assemble combinations of cheeks for photos (which I then remove to test something else after taking these pictures, haha). It’s the perfect mix of shimmer and spark, so they’re intense, but they’re not sparkling like earth either.
In the same order of ideas, I have a tendency to prefer highlighters moved or endowed with a kind of multicolored bead. The following people belong to this group: Tom Ford Liquid Sun, Becca Berlin Glow, Marc Jacobs Beauty Gilty, OFRA Space Baby and Pretty Vulgar Lilac Lust.
This year, I’ve specifically researched and tested more liquid and cream highlighters, and I’ve found two new favorites: the Marc Jacobs Beauty Spotlight and the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Light Wand Lightning. The new Super Glow highlighters from Natasha Denona are a new favorite (they were placed in my vanity drawer).
Plus, I’ve kept my favorites list here for stand-alone products (not the nuances in a wider palette), but I’d like to implore Fenty Beauty to publish Stone Cold (from the palette holiday) as a single for 2019 – please and thank you! Some of you may be wondering why Amrezy d’Anastasia did not make my list … because I have dozens, and I personally have not found the very different finish or color of the many gel powder formulations available on the market.
Which high / medium highlighters did you reach this year?
P.S. – You can see samples of my favorites here.
