Highlighters are some of my favorite makeup items and I always lust over the new releases. Last couple of years there has been highlighter frenzy – the more the better. I am still a huge fan of some of the oldies like MAC soft and gentle and long discontinued but never forgotten Dior shimmer amber diamond. Lately, I decided to add more Charlotte Tilbury to my collection and Bar of gold seemed like a good idea with three different shades. These are pretty shimmery but they work really well on the eyes too. My second pick was Marc Jacob Guilty – dear God! Marc Beauty hit it out of the park with this one – texture is unreal it is so smooth and pigmented and soft like silk. It is definitely too dark for my complexion to be used as a typical highlighter but I like to pair it with Marc Beauty coconut bronzer as a bit of cheek color and shine. Last but not the least another Hourglass palette – there is one thing about Hourglass – it NEVER disappoints. They simply mastered the art of powders and their latest Unlocked palette is worth getting. Scroll down for some photos and swatches. Enjoy!
