Hey all! Today I want to do things a bit different. Let’s talk about highlighters! I never talk about highlighters because I never really fell into the whole trend. I would very rarely apply highlighters during my makeup routine… until now. When I first dabbled into highlighters, I bought NYX’s liquid illuminator because I wasn’t about to splurge on something I didn’t know how I was gonna feel about. So Becca’s highlighters, Bobbi Brown’s shimmer bricks, etc were out of the question! I ended up enjoying it so I decided to dabble in the highlighter trend.
Colourpop came out with highlighters a few months back and they’re super affordable so I picked a few up. Here the shades…
Sorry if the swatches aren’t picking up very well but that’s the best I could do for now. So let’s discuss the shades from left to right.
Highly Waisted – soft golden peach with pink and gold duo chrome finishes.
Teasecake – pale pink with a gold and pink duo chrome finish
Butterfly Beach – soft peach with highlights of gold and silver
Wisp – golden champagne with highly reflective hues of gold duo chrome finishes
As far as quality goes, I AM IN LOVE! The texture is like butter. They’re so creamy and pigmented. My personal faves are Highly Waisted and Butterfly Beach. Highly Waisted is a gorgeous rose gold color on my skin. Butterfly Beach is comes off like a golden coral on my cheeks. Teasecake is pretty pink so I would probably use that the least since I don’t do many pink looks. Wisp gives me that bronzy J.Lo vibe so I know I’ll be using that one often.
The price point is $8 each! Yes, only $8. To me that’s incredibly reasonable compared to a lot of other highlighters on the market. So if you’re just trying highlighters for the first time or want to add some new affordable ones to your collection, I’d definitely check out Colourpop!
