One of my FAVORITE make up products is highlighters! I have a bit of an addiction to collecting them! I took two high end highlighters and two drug store ones here for review between the two worlds. I have MAC "Lightscapade", Sephora Micro Smooth in "Star Dust", E.L.F. in "Pinktastic", and Physicians Formula in "Translucent Pearl". I have many more but, these ones are my favorites at the moment. The Mac values at $32.00, the Sephora values at $14.00, the ELF values at $3.00, and the Physicians Formula values at $13.95.
Here are the swatches of these highlighters! Starting at the bottom is the Mac, then Sephora, then ELF and finally Physicians Formula at the top. The high end highlighters seem to have a yellowish tint to them, while the drug store highlighters have a pink tint. I have to say I gravitate more towards the pink tint ones and MOSTLY the physicians formula! The MAC is beautiful but, when you smear it, it tends to disappear. The Physicians Formula goes on bright and when smeared, stays pigmented and moves nicely over the area. The Sephora and ELF ones are equally great but they have sparkles in them that are a little too much for everyday wear.
Out of all of these the Physicians Formula Highlighter is my favorite! Even though it is an expensive drug store product, it is worth its weight in gold (or pearls!)! It is about $.05 less than Sephora's and TEN TIMES better! It is the MOST pigmented and transfers amazingly! Plus, you can't beat the packaging them comes with ANY Physicians Formula product!
What are you favorite highlighters? Leave me a comment and let me know! I am always on the hunt for them and want to know everyones favorites and least favorites! Let me know what you think of these highlighters I have mentioned! Do you stick to high end highlighters or is there a favorite drug store one that you can't live without?
