Well hello there!
If you know me then you'll know that I am one for that blinding highlight and I put highlighter on every single day! In this post I am going to talk you through some of my favourite highlighters that I simply cannot live without!
Now I am all about going to Superdrug and picking up highlighters that aren't that expensive. However, sometimes you do have to invest in more expensive makeup to get the best quality. Highlighters that are cheaper can be just as good as the expensive ones, but I like to have that highlight popping all day. Hence why there are a couple in here that are more on the expensive side. Just to let you know that 3 out of 4 of these are palettes with multiple shades and not just a single shade.
Anastasia Beverley Hills x Nicole Guerriero
This is a highlighter palette and is high end. I don't tend to buy a lot of high end products purely because I cannot afford to keep purchasing them. However, when I saw this hyped up on YouTube early this year, I just had to buy it. I can tell you that it was worth every penny. The quality of these highlighters is incredible and they look beautiful the cheekbones, my favourite shade in this palette is 'Forever Lit' as it is the palest and looks best with my skin tone. They are insanely pigmented and don't emphasise my texture. I have looked everywhere and I can't find this on the internet? I did not think this was limited edition. Well if you look on the Anastasia Beverley Hills website, there are other highlighter palettes on their that are just as amazing! This is a high end brand so their highlighter palettes are £41.
Sleek Solstice
This is a drugstore palette, and I think this was the first highlighter product I ever bought and what made me so obsessed with them as I am today. For the price of 
£9.99, I think everyone if you have not already - give it a go! My favourite shade in this palette is the top right shade which is a light purple colour and this has a blinding icy tone. I don't really use the cream shade because I have other products I like better. This palette is cheaper, it retails for £9.99 and you can buy this here.
Jeffree Star Skin Frost - Ice Cold
This is another high end brand because it retails for £25, I know that is a lot but this is a massive pan of product - it will last you forever! The packaging is a hot pink colour which I love and it also has a mirror. This is probably my number 1 highlighter because the shade is perfect for my skin tone and it is super blinding!! This is a high end product so these highlighters cost £25 which I don't think is that bad considering how big the pan is. You can buy this from here.
Soph X Makeup Revolution
This is a recent discovery of mine, I bought this a couple of months ago when it come out. What I love most about this palette is that it is for every skin tone, which is something that not all highlighter palettes do. As you could guess my favourite shade is the top left which is the lightest one. Not only are the colours beautiful and extremely pigmented but you have a choice of 8 different shades and it only retails for £8! It is very cheap for how good the quality is. I think Sophie did such a good job with this highlighter palette and I hope she comes out with more products in the future. As I said this palette is only £8 and you can buy this here.
So those are my favourite highlighters! If you have any favourites, be sure to let me know in the comments.
