Pink Toned Highlighters

Fish love the water, birds love the sky, and I love pink. Some things just come naturally. Everybody who knows me knows that this is an undeniable fact. I liked millennial pink back when it was just called “pink,” and once I sported a fuchsia […]

Wet n Wild Highlighters Review and Swatches

The Wet n Wild highlighters are probably the most sought-after drugstore highlighters. These highlighters, particularly the Precious Petals highlight, put Wet n Wild back on the map for me. A brand that formally represented the super-cheap makeup of my childhood suddenly became one of the the […]

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost Highlighters: Ice Cold and Princess Cut (Review & Swatches)

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost Highlighters: Ice Cold and Princess Cut (Review & Swatches)

The Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frost Highlighters are incredible. There’s no way about it: they are the best highlighters for that super metallic glow, at least of the highlighters I have tried (and let me tell you, I’ve tried a lot). These highlighters are so richly pigmented, the pans are enormous, and the colors are diverse. I bought the two lightest shades, Ice Cold (an ultra-white highlighter) and Princess Cut (an icy pink) but I’ve got my eye on Peach Goddess.

The Jeffree Star Skin Frost highlighters are a soft powder formula. If you want a natural looking glow, you might be able to achieve it with this product if you use just a tiny bit. But in all honesty, these highlighters are really intended for more ambitious glow-seekers. Apply a little of the highlighter and you are glowing, but if you apply a lot you will basically be visible from an airplane. I’m a highlighter fiend, so I love the intense glow.

Ice Cold is very light; it is one of the most intense white highlighters I’ve ever come across. It’s bold and beautiful, but I’m not sure I would recommend it for deeper skin tones. On my fair skin, it gives me the frosted look I like.

Princess Cut is a little more subdued, but if you layer it on it still packs a punch. I love that this highlight can look soft or bold, depending on how much you wear. I also love the color; it’s the perfect soft pink.

The Jeffree Star Skin Frost highlighters can also be used as eyeshadows. Sometimes I mix both Ice Cold and Skin Frost on my face. Overall, these highlighters are high quality, a great value (you get so much product), and just flat out fun to wear. What are your favorite highlighters?

e.l.f. Baked Highlighters Review + Swatches

The e.l.f. highlighters are the best drugstore highlighters I have tried to date- I’ve had mixed experiences with NYX, and I like the Wet n Wild “I’ll Have a Cosmo” highlighter well enough, but I definitely prefer the e.l.f. baked highlighters. First of all the […]
