7 Hyped Up Highlighters Worth the Hype

For me, highlighting tends to be the most difficult part of putting makeup on. Not because highlighting the skin is hard in terms of technique, but because I have so many shades that it’s hard to choose just 1 (or 2 or 3). In reality I just want to douse myself with all of them, but obviously I can’t. Well, I could– hello full face highlighter challenge!

7 Hyped Up Highlighters Worth the Hype

BECCA Champagne Pop and Opal Pressed. If you haven’t heard of these highlighters then you must be living under a rock because they are probably the most talked about and hyped up. Champagne Pop is a peachy toned white gold highlight and Opal is a golden pearl. Both shades are absolutely amazing and definitely worth the hype because a little goes a long way and you get so much product.

MUFE Pro Sculpting Duo #2When I heard this shade was a dupe for the LE and highly lusted after MAC Whisper of Gilt and Estée Lauder Heatwave, I had to have this. It’s such a gorgeous warm gold that is perfect for medium to deep skin. The consistency is a gel powder so it’s untraceable on the skin, which may sound too good to be true, but it’s true and just too good to pass up!

Anastasia Beverly Hills So HollywoodWhen these highlighters first launched, it was all I saw on Instagram, beauty blogs, and YouTube. So, of course I finally gave in ;). This is a beautiful yellowy golden shade that looks almost metallic and frosty on the skin. The texture of this is very velvety so it blends seamlessly on to the skin

MAC Soft & GentleTalk about an OG highlighter.. This beige-y peach highlighter gives a shockingly soft & gentle glow to the skin, and it just makes the skin glisten so beautifully. There’s a reason why it’s still so popular today!

Kevyn Aucoin CandlelightI have the cream version, but boy is it beautiful. The formula is so smooth and it blends like a dream making your skin look as though it naturally glows like that– girl, I wish. This is worth the hype for anyone who likes a more natural highlight. If you want something very metallic and intense then this won’t be for you.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting PowdersNow these powders aren’t your typical “highlighters” since they’re not extremely pigmented or obvious. Instead, these give the skin a subtle lit from within glow and makes the skin look so flawless. Definitely worth the hefty price tag!

  • When there are so many new releases and gorgeous highlighters, it is really hard not to want them all! I will probably give up and end up purchasing Hourglass, however I want to test it first to see how it feels on the skin! x

  • Dang that MUFE highlighter looks amazing! Gorgeous picks though, my highlighter collection is slowly growing – I need to do a roundup. Champagne Pop and Soft and Gentle are some of my faves too. I wish I got my hands on one of the ABH highlighters when they were out!

    Tasha // shiwashiful.

    • Yes girl, do a roundup! I have so many more highlighters than these, it’s embarrassing haha. I believe the ABH highlighters are going to be back in stock in the future so definitely pick one up when they are!

  • Opal is definitely one of mine! The texture is amazing! I actually use the Hourglass ones as setting powders, they work great on my dehydrated skin. I recently got my hands on the ABH Glow kit with i’m really loving xx

    • The texture of Opal is a dream. It’s so soft and velvety. I love using the HG powders as a setting powder under the eyes because it makes the under eyes look radiant and not matte :). I need to get a Glow Kit. They look amazing!

  • Becca’s Opal is a favourite! I love how intense it is. On a similar scale theBalm’s Mary Lou is great as well!

    Advaita | Blush Canvas

    • I used to have Mary Loumanizer, but for some reason just never fell in love with it even though it was really pretty. But, Opal is definitely a fave and I will forever love it!

  • I have all but two of these highlighters and you’re right, they’re worth the hype. Thees are all such beautiful highlights. xx

  • These look beautiful! Highlighters are my fave beauty item and I’m always on the look out for something new! I have champagne pop on my wish list at the moment and I love the look of the ABH too!! Great post :) xxx

    • Highlighters are definitely my favorite as well haha. What’s your most favorite highlighter? Definitely give both of those a try!

  • I have dim light and regret not getting the highlight palette instead. At least, I can play with 3 different highlights instead of one. Still, I love my dim light powder to death! I am eyeing champagne pop next!

    • At least the trio is permanent so you can pick it up anytime :) Champagne Pop is so gorgeous!

  • Dom

  • From the swatches so hollywood has really caught my eye, I’ve heard they’re rereleasing it this summer and I hope its not just a rumour! I LOVE champagne pop but I have to use it on a thin fan brush because a thicker or more natural hair brush just is a little too much :P I really wanna try the MUFE one and I have two glow kits from ABH in the mail, so excited for those ^_^

    • I’ve heard that as well! It’s so popular so I’m sure they’re working on a restock. Ooh I want to try the Glow Kits! I can’t wait to hear what you think :)

  • P.S gilded honey by laura geller is STUNNNNNNING!

  • Bernadette

    The becca highlighters are definitely amaze balls! I definitely need to try that Anastasia one, i wasn’t sure it would be intense enough for my liking but it sounds good!
