Inventory: Highlighters

I can’t believe I have to give highlighters their own stash category. I thought I could lump it with blushes and bronzers, but there would just be too many in one post.

I don't use highlighters on a regular basis. I'd be lucky to use one once a week, so these will probably never make it to an Empties post unless they go green or start to smell.
  1. Guerlain Meteorites Miniatures Trio Collection - While the brush it came with is scratchy and the cardboard packaging feels cheap, the product itself feels and smells divine. I must get these back into rotation.
    • 01 Mythic - I don't recall the green pearl being really effective at countering redness, still I must use this up.
    • 02 Pink Fresh - I haven't used this much, but I will start using this a blush.
    • 03 Beige Chic - Of the three Meteorites, this is the most often used. As an all-over powder, it's shimmery but subtle enough for daytime.
  2. Models Prefer Highlighter Quad in Glitz & Glamour - My first impression of this was it was way too sparkly for daytime. I'll try it with a light hand and see what I come up with.
  3. MAC High-Light Powder in Spectacle! - I don't know what came over or why I even bought this. It had a nice shimmery patina, but once that's gone it's just a matte baby pink powder which I doubt will work with my skin tone.
  4. Benefit Watt's Up! Soft Focus Highlighter - Very pretty champagne highlighter with a very fine powdery shimmer. I love this. Need to use it more.
  5. Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Illuminator in Angel Blush - The shimmer is not very fine, but the liquid formula makes it easier to blend, and can be toned down when my choice of setting powder.
  6. Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Illuminator in Angel Flame - ditto.
  7. Nude by Nature Soft Focus Illuminator - I haven't opened this baby yet. I'm saving it until I have fully trialled the other products in this category.
  8. Essence Vampire's Love Shimmer Powder - Very subtle. Works well on its own, but can amp up a cream or liquid highlighter underneath it.
