Battle Of The Highlighters

Saturday, 22 February 2014

Hey Dolls.
Today I thought I'd talk to you about two amazing highlighters. There is a massive price difference between them but they both do such a great job at highlighting the face. So if you would like to know more about the highlighters & see which one I adore more just keep on reading.

Ysl Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Highlighter
This is a pen style highlighter, you click the bottom a few times to dispense the product into the brush. The highlighter itself is a peachy pink, when blended it becomes clear & adds a beautiful glow to the skin. I apply this after my foundation, on to the corners of my eyes, cheekbones, bridge of the nose & brow bone - I then use my fingers or beauty sponge to blend it. The product blends easily & makes the skin look much more radiant & awake.

Mua Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter
This is a powder highlighter that has a beautiful intricate design engraved on the product. The Highlighter itself is a pale pink, you only need a small amount to give the skin a subtle radiant glow. I apply this after I have powdered, on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose & occasionally on my brow bone. It contains fine shimmer but when applied it brightens the skin, achieving a perfect natural-as-possible glow.

Overall, I adore both highlighters & occasionally find myself using both to highlight different places. I think the Ysl highlighter will be better for warmer weather as I try not to put to many powder products on my face but I definitely think the Mua highlighter is still my favourite. Even though they both give a natural glow, I think the Mua one stands out that little bit more.

Are you a fan of highlighters? What is your go to highlighting product?


  1. I don't actually own a highlighter, but I love using shade 1 from my MUA's Undressed palette, I think it's really similar to the MUA highlighter actuall!
