Anastasia Beverly Hills changed the highlighter game with their coveted Glow Kits. Influensters love the warm, golden tones of "That Glow" and how effortlessly this buttery formula blends onto the skin.
Despite how amazing these palettes are, there are plenty of budget-friendly dupes out there to get you that angelic look-at-me highlight of your dreams.
ColourPop's Highlighters are ranked #3 in Highlighters for a good reason– they're a unique creamy powder formula, come in a wide range of shades, and are only $8 each. Yep, you read that right. Feel free to go crazy and build your own palette because even after adding four of these to your cart, you'll still be saving money!
If I could give ten stars I would!! Colourpop has taken so much of my money (in a good way) that it's not even funny. It's heartbreakingly glorious!! These highlighters are only $8 and the actual pans are quite large. Not to mention the cream consistency gives the highest possible amount of pigmentation you can get in a highlighter without being a liquid and does it all with zero fallout. You can easily layer to build intensity. They recommend applying with your fingertip as you will be able to pick up as much pigment as you wish and help the formula warm a little to basically melt onto your face for a satisfying wet look that will stay (and slay) until you want it to come off. I've never been more impressed with a highlighter and add to my collection almost weekly. That's not a joke... did you see their newest launch?? Yeah. Bye bye $$, hello more Colourpop highlighters.
Wet 'n Wild's Illuminating Palette is a super affordable option ($5!) that combines four That-Glow-esk pigments into one travel-friendly compact. The color portions are smaller, but Influensters love the ability to blend all four shades together in one stroke! It's also impressively pigmented for a drugstore highlighter.
Wet N Wild is one of the best drugstore brands when it comes to highlighters. This one in particular is very good, especially if you are one you likes a more natural glow. It can be built up to a more intense look, especially if you spray your face with a setting spray beforehand, or wet your brush. I stick to the two lighter shades to highlight my face, I use the dark pink over my blush sometimes, and the golden shade for my eyes. Good pigment, a little powdery but that's never bothered me, soft to the touch. I paid a little under $5 for mine and you can't beat it. You get a great glow for a cheap price, and you get a lot of product as well. Does last a long time and I believe it'll work for all skin tones.
e.l.f. Cosmetics is known for their high-performing makeup products at amazing low prices. Their Illuminating Palette is a near-spot-on dupe for ABH's Glow Kit, not to mention it's a whole $34 cheaper! We'll cheers to that.
Honestly, for the price of $6, I was skeptical that I would like it, but this palette is honestly so good. The pigmentation is amazing and the powders are so versatile. You can use them to highlight or even as eyeshadow. One of my favorite thing about this palette is that the colors are nice complements of each other if you wanted to mixed them all together before applying. Another thing that I like is that you can build the glow, so if you have a light hand, the highlight is more subtle. However, if you build it, you can get a nice, noticeable highlight.
For $20, NYX's Strobe of Genius gives you ABH's Glow Kit shades plus three more. They're buttery, pigmented, long-lasting, and work well when mixed together!
This palette is awesome, and not just for drugstore! It's one of my favorite highlight palettes, it's up there with my Anastasia glow kit. They're not as smooth or blend as nicely as Anastasia, but the pigmentation is just as good. The yellow highlight is the only one I have a problem with. It's a little difficult to get good payoff. I still think $20 is a little steep, but if you can get it on sale you better get your hands on it!
Drew Barrymore's Walmart-exclusive brand FLOWER has been pumping out some seriously amazing new products as of late. This highlighting palette offers three versatile shades of champagne, rose gold, and copper to perfect your strobing dreams.
I've seen this product in a couple of editors new beauty products posts and found it at my local Walmart. It's pretty affordable (under $20 for 3 shades) they have 3 shades that cover all the tone variations (cool, warm, and neutral) and even if you only like 1 or 2 shades as an actual highlighter you can use them all on the eyes. The pigment is really nice and they blend out really well for drugstore. They aren't shades I didn't already have so that was slightly disappointing but I loved trying it out and will be using it regularly in my travels for sure.
Pixi's Glow to Go palette makes touching up on-the-go an effortless task. Their cream-to-powder formula is infused with jojoba oil to hydrate and protect skin while giving it that beautiful barely-there glow.
I love this little cream highlight . A little goes a long way and I love that there are four different shades. I personally use the brown and purple the most. It's inexpensive and very worth the price.
