The Best Liquid Highlighters

Based on 381,346 Influenster Reviews

Liquid highlighters have the benefit of being workable from a very natural dewy finish to a full-blown wet gleaming highlighted look. They make for a versatile and skin-hugging product that melds better on your skin than certain chunky powdery highlights.

Because we know how difficult it can be to choose the perfect product, we rounded the top-rated liquid highlighters Influensters can't stop raving about!

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal is a Holy Grail item for me. I use it as a base for my makeup everyday or if I'm not wearing "full" makeup this is what I use mixed with a bit of primer. It makes my skin glow from within without looking as though I rolled in the glitter wheel. It is so smooth and does not cause breakouts as many other products have caused. I am a trusted Becca fan! ...read more

Glow like a goddess with this creamy highlighter that builds from sheer to intense. Ultra-concentrated pigments & pearls are suspended in the hybrid gel-cream, oil free formula that you can mix with your liquid foundation or wear alone for naturally lit luminosity. Infused with rose water, it slips softly onto skin & keeps moisture in with tapered, squeezable packaging to put the highlight exactly where you want it. You can also layer the superpigmented shades with their matching . ...read more

I've never used a liquid highlighter until now and I am OBSESSED. I absolutely love this product. I usually wear the lightest on on top of my powder highlight and it reflects beautifully. ...read more

Honestly, I absolutely adore this illuminator with all my heart. I bought a tube of this in the shade sunbeam a few months ago because I really like NYX products and I've only ever had good experiences with the brand. Despite using this highlighter a couple times a week since I've bought it I've barely even made a dent in the amount because a little amount of this product will go a very long way.

Coupled with or without a good foundation, this product will last a very long time; I'm talking all-day coverage and having to use makeup remover at the end of the day. You definitely don't have to worry about accidentally rubbing this off your face.

On an even brighter note, it is an extremely cheap highlighter, especially for its quality. I highly recommend, especially if you're on a budget, but even if you're not, do yourself a favor and save some money by buying this. ...read more

This is probably my favourite benefit product of all time! I have been using this product since I first started using makeup and it never does me wrong!! I usually ably it onto a beauty blender and dab it on to my cheekbones rather than directly apply it on top of your makeup as it can take away some of your foundation and concealer. I have and still will recommend this product to others! ...read more

For $4, this "natural glow" option is a steal!

The price is right! I learnt the hard way that it's very important to give this product a good shake prior to applying as the highlighter does separate. This is the first liquid highlighter I've used and I'm pleasantly surprised due to the cheap price point! Definitely a product I would purchase again! ...read more
