Affordable highlighters

Hey everyone and welcome back to the blog :)

So I just wanted to do a post on my favourite highlighters!! Anyone who knows me personally or through the blog will know that I love affordable beauty products and I own a lot of highlighters that cost me so little! So I like both liquid and powder highlighters and I find they both work well for me :) 

MeMeMe Beat the Blues

So first up is the MeMeMe Beat the blues highlighter in Moonbeam , a dupe for Benefit High beam and only €6.99. It does the exact same thing as the high Beam, the only difference I find is that the Benefit has a little bit more of  a thicker consistency. This gives you such a lovely glow and I highly recommend it. It can be purchased at any of the MeMeMe  stands, one being in the Medical Hall in Edenderry :) 

Essence Cinderella Highlight powder 

Next up is Essence. Earlier this summer Essence had the Cinderella brand out. I just fell in love with the display! I love Cinderella!! One of my fave Disney movies so I was very excited about this limited edition. So I got my hands on the Cinderella highlighter and I LOVE  it, I think this was only like €4.99 and I swear it gives such a nice glow, I  love to put it on my cheek bones after I have finished my make up for a final glow finish. 

Essence soo Glow! cream to powder highlighter 

Another Essence fave!! This cream to powder highlighter is so good and was only like €4 !! It's a relay nice light pink shade and it goes on so nicely and isn't sticky like most creams. Essence are such a great make up brand and do not get enough credit for their products. I lurve them  :) 

Seventeen WOW Skin

Next is the Seventeen Wow skin 3 way liquid highlighter. This highlighter is AMAZING!!! It comes in a bottle wit a pump and is so easy to apply. I like to apply it to my cheek bones, brows, cupids bow and my nose. It gives such an amazing glow and again it was cheap as chips. at the moment boots has some amazing offers on including selected 2 products for just €11 on the Seventeen stand. This highlighter is included. 

Catrice Pure Shimmer Highlighter 

This highlighter is so beautiful!!! I won this in a competition from A Judge Less Life (check out her blog she's amazing!!!) but I absolutely love it and it gives such a nice goldy pinky shimmer!! Again perfect for highlighting the cheek bones!!! :D 

Sleek Contour blush and highlighter kit

 Last but not least is the Sleek highlighter from the highlight, contour and blush kit. I swear by this palette for contour and highlight and its only like €10. The highlight is a powder and is so nice and sparkly. it gives an amazing glow!! This is def one of my most favourite ones!!! :) 

Most of these products can be purchased from most pharmacies nationwide. 
Have you used any of the highlighters mentioned above? If so which ones are your favourite??

Until next time 
Lots of love
