Budget Highlighters + swatches


Highlighters are one of my favourite makeup items. I just love putting highlighter on. I only own drugstore highlighters, two of which are powders, one is cream and other is liquid. Today I thought I'd share my 4 budget highlighters, all of which are under £9! There are so many high end highlighters that I want to try, but at the moment I buy drugstore ones as they're really good.


Makeup Revolution Highlight Palette: This highlight palette is amazing. I love Makeup Revolution, their eyeshadows are my favourite and they're so inexpensive. Their products are all very pigmented and such good quality. Their highlight palette is one that I use all the time, well almost every time I wear makeup. There are three highlighters in this palette, all of which are their Vivid Baked highlighters in one palette. The shades (from left to right) are Golden LightsPeach Lights and Pink Lights. My all time favourite shade and most used it Golden Lights. This palette only costs £8 and the individual Vivid Baked highlighters are £3 each, so you save £1 if you wanted all the highlighters separately. This palette comes with a good sized mirror, which I use a lot as their mirrors seem to be very clear and good. For £8 this is amazing! (my review here).


NYX Liquid Illuminator: This is my newest highlighter and I loveeee it. This is the first time that I had tried a liquid illuminator, so at first I was a little worried that this was going to look awful because I didn't know how it was going to look on me. It actually looks so nice and I mostly use a beauty blender to blend it in. You can use this as a base, which I've not done yet and probably wont. This is very pigmented and it blends so easily. I'll be uploading a post on it next week! This was £7, which I think is so good.

 
Barry M Radiant Rod Highlighter: I really love this highlighter. This was the first highlighter that I bought last year. It's pigmented and it's a cream highlighter. I don't use this as often as my others because it's snapped and it makes it difficult to apply, but it hasn't stopped me from using it. This looks so nice on the brow bone, bridge of my nose and cheekbones. I've never actually wrote a blogpost about this, so I'm considering doing so. This was £3.99!


Makeup Revolution Peach Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter: I know this highlighter is pretty much the same as the palette, but single. I bought this before the palette and I use this a lot. It's the perfect size for your bag and travelling with. This is also so pigmented and only cost £3! (my review here).

  7. I've been looking for a nice highlighter, but at a cheaper price since I wouldn't use it everyday. Your post was very helpful, i'm going to try the NYX highlighter!
