Golden toned highlighters get lots of love and raves from many beauty gurus. Sadly, on my fair skin, they hardly ever turn out looking great. So I was on the hunt for the perfect golden toned highlighter for fair skin. Preferably a good one, that is not too expensive and that lasts well on the skin. And you know what?! I think I found it!

In the summer, I tend to change up my makeup routine quite a bit. Last year around this time, I became obsessed with trying liquid highlighters. And so I acquired a few which I have been rotating in and out of my routine for a while now to test them out. One of those liquid highlighters that I was itching to try were the Maybelline Master Strobing Liquids. I bought the lightest shade of course and these are my thoughts.

Cream products are never really of interest to me, unless it is summer. For the warmer weather I love trying out liquid and cream cheek products that I usually stay away from for the rest of the year. Since we’re nearing summer once again, I have slowly been busting out those products again. The first product I started trying more was this holographic highlight stick by Essence.

Look who finally jumped on the bandwagon? Yep, that would be me. I finally caved and decided to try an Ofra highlighter. These are much raved about and now also come in some additional shades. I went with the OG Rodeo Drive shade. I initially wanted to get Blissful, but after doing some research I decided that it may be too dark for me. As if fate decided to settle the matter for me, that one was also out of stock when I decided to buy one. So, Rodeo Drive ended up being my choice. How did I get on?

Kiko Milano is an Italian brand that I love trying items from. They make one of my all time favorite blushes and their eyeshadow sticks are great too. When I spotted they now also do highlighters when I visited one of their stores, I was curious to try it. I was umming and arring between this one for their standard collection and a limited edition one. Thinking I would get more wear out of this one, I figured I would go with the lightest of the three in their permanent collection.

My experience with Essence palette, be it eyeshadow be it face palettes, is a bit hit or miss. The products are affordable and sadly that means that the quality isn’t always there. However, since the products never truly break the bank, I love trying them out when a new launch rolls around. For their S/S 2018 collection, Essence has released a new highlighter palette and I was curious to try it.

In the new Catrice line up, it is all about that glow. Now many of the products are dubbed ‘holographic’, but so far none of the products I have tried come even close to being truly holographic. That said, however, that doesn’t mean these products aren’t pretty or don’t work well. Case in point: the new Galactic liquid highlighter.
