Five Most Used: Highlighters

Five Most Used Highlighters
The third installment of my Five Most Used series will be about my favourite highlighters; I never actually used a highlighter until well after I started blogging, I simply wasn't aware of their existence and didn't really realise how much they can do to help brighten and sculpt your face. Now, I wear a highlighter almost every day, unless I'm wearing a blusher which has enough of a shimmer to go without. These are my go-to choices!
Favourite Highlighters
Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter in 'Rose Illumination' | I think this is the first highlighter I ever owned and it's still up there as one of my favourites! Not only is the luxurious rose-gold packaging just beautiful, but the powder highlighter is so flattering and easy to wear, a beautiful pinky shade with gold shimmer to it. This is probably more of a spring/summer daytime highlight.
Makeup Revolution Goddess of Love Triple Baked Highlighter | Not only is this beautifully packaged in a gorgeous heart-shaped box, it's also a simply stunning product. A very recent addition to my arsenal, I think this is the only highlight I've used since getting it! This is a cool-toned silvery-pink shade which I find sculpts my face nicely and leaves my skin looking fresh and bright.
MUA Mosaic Blush in 'English Rose' | This is technically a blush but I find that it only really shows up on the skin as a cool-toned shimmer so it's much more suited for use as a highlight, even on my fair skin - I can't imagine anyone with a deeper skin-tone being able to use this as a blusher either to be honest! Cheap and cheerful, MUA are definitely one of my favourite budget brands and this is no exception, a lovely silvery-pink shade which looks almost frosted on the skin.
Benefit Sun Beam | This is probably my least-used of these most-used products (does that even make sense!?) but that's purely because I'm in the habit of applying highlighter after my powder, which obviously doesn't work so well with cream and liquid products... Nonetheless, when I do remember to use this, it's a beautiful golden-bronze shade which, again, is perfect for summer days. This was actually a magazine freebie but you need so little that I don't see myself ever having to purchase a full-sized version!
Wet N Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in 'Rosé Champagne Glow' | I feel a bit bad including this as it's really not readily available in the UK, but I have been wearing it an awful lot since receiving it as part of a package of US beauty goodies in a giveaway win. The marbled pattern of the product is beautiful and it gives a really subtle brightening effect to the skin, without being over-the-top.

    I find that more champagne/golden highlighters work best with my skin tone and my favorites are the new one from the Kiko Daring Game collection and a Mac msf that I don't remember the name of :p

  2. I've got the English Rose one by MUA too and it's a highlight on me, glad it's not just me! I really like the look of the Wet n Wild one though, I may have to invest.

  5. Highlighters are a product which I have actually very little experience with. At the moment I use my old favourite Topshop highlight which is still going strong although I have since picked up the Charlotte Tilbury one which isn't as shimmery. I've always wanted to try Benefit High Beam/ Sun Beam and have regretted not picking up those samples.
