Favourite Highlighter 2010
It's a tie (I couldn't help it!)
Lorac Perfectly Lit in Spotlight
I love this product and am so happy to have found it. I wrote a full blog post you can read here, that will give you a more detailed review. Suffice it to say...this gives you a gorgeous glow & is not too sparkly or over the top for use during the day. Love all around. The only one downside is the price, this retails for about $32CAD..but a little truly does go a long way.
Hard Candy Bronzer in Tiki
Again any regular reader will also know my love for this product. This is not a bronzer but gives a beautiful gold highlight that I think would suit most any skin tone. I did a full review on this as well, which you can read here. Hard Candy is available at Wal-Mart & this retails for less than $10CAD...pretty hard to beat, you have to try it!
NARS Illuminator in Orgasm & ELF Shimmering Facial
Whip in Toasted
These are surprisingly similar, although I will admit that the NARS has a better golden/bronze colour & is easier to blend than the ELF. Given the price difference however ($30 vs $1) you will have to judge what will do the job for you. I daub a little on my cheekbones, etc. with my finger & then just lightly rub in circular motions to blend. If I am using powder foundation I apply these first & the result is really pretty. These are also great on hot summer days, when I don't wear as much make-up but still want a little glow.
Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure Sparkle Powder
This came in my Glitz & Glam kit that I bought in Florida. Can anyone guess why I don't prefer this product? I am a little beyond the age where this would be cute, the picture pretty much says it all for me. I am thinking my 13 year old niece might like to wear this for her dance/cheer competitions. Otherwise, it's just not for me..way too much sparklicity for this girl.
Any highlighters you swear by? I would love to hear about them! I thought this was going to be my last 'Best Of' post, but I have o.n.e. more coming...stay tuned.
