So today I decided to write about highlighters. I love using them in my every day routine and I have quite a few of them, so I thought I would try a comparison! I am going to be comparing the Tarte Pro Glow-To-Go and Vintage Cosmetic’s Highlighter which I received in a monthly Boxycharm.
Let’s start with the Tarte Pro Glow To Go palette. This palette has two lovely highlighters, one is a pinky-purple and the other being a light golden and the third pan is filled with a warm bronzer, intended for a contour. The two highlighter are meant for strobing but I tend to use them to create a shimmer on my cheeks.
They take a bit of work to get on the brush, personally I like using a stippling brush instead of a fan brush in order to pick up the product and dust it across my face. Since it is meant to be buildable, you do need to apply it a couple of times before you will get a good solid highlight. The palette is for US$23, so it is a really good price for two highlighters and a contour pan.
(Picture from Sephora, my palette is a little bit of a mess right now).
Moving onto the Vintage Highlighter. This is my go-to highlighter. The fan brush will pick up just the right amount of product. You really do not need much product with the vintage palette because just a little will do the job if you want a blinding highlighter. I really love this product, though it is expensive at US$35 for two highlighters and nothing else.
I haven’t really used any liquid highlighter, I am really curious about the CoverFx ones so if you’ve used it before, please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments! (Comments can be about anything haha).
