Highlighting has become a recent obsession of… well pretty much everyone. Don’t get us wrong, we are living for “that glow.” We have partnered again with the lovely ladies over at Beauty Entourage to provide you some affordable options to achieve that blinding glow or the radiant glow from within. Drugstores have some amazing underrated highlighters that won’t break the bank! Check below for swatches of each!
The first highlighting product that I’m sure you all have already heard a ton about is Wet n Wild’s Boozy Brunch ($5.99). This highlighter is a blinding beautiful gold sheen. Don’t be fooled by the brown, pink, or yellow in the pan because when mixed together it’s a beautiful gold. If you have light to medium to deep skin tone, this will be perfect for you for spring and summer. However, if you have a more fair skin tone, you may not be able to be used as a highlighter but would be a perfect eyeshadow! The packaging is rather bulky but you do receive a ton of product! I’m not going to lie, this highlighter is difficult to track down in drugstores. I had to continually check for months so if you want this, stick to ordering it online! You can also receive 10% off your first order on their website!
The next three products are from the wonderful company, Makeup Revolution. I’ve yet to be disappointed by any of their products. While you cannot purchase these at CVS or Walgreens, you can at purchase their products at Ulta Beauty! You can also use ebates to get money back!

The first highlighter is more of a glow from within. It is their Vivid Baked Highlighter ($6.00) in Radiant Lights. This is a beautiful pearl highlight that would be absolutely perfect on fair to even medium skin tones. It is exactly how it’s named, radiant light from within.
The next highlight was sent from the Peach Gods. I’m talking about the Skin Kiss ($9.00) in Peach Kiss. In my opinion, this shade would look beautiful on everyone! It may be a little dark for my fair skinned ladies but if you use a light hand you can make it work. Keep in mind, they do have two other shades. This highlighter is the most ‘chunky’ glitter, but it doesn’t appear too much on the skin. This is going to be my absolute perfect summer highlight. I love putting it on my shoulders and collarbone as well.
Let me just mention the pan size on both of these products are HUGE! They also have beautiful designs in the pan. When the products arrived on my doorstep, I was shocked at the amount of product and the quality for the price!
The last product is The Vivid Shimmer Brick ($7.00) in the shade Radiant. This product is absolutely beautiful. I originally purchased it because I believed it looked like a dupe for the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks (check back for a later post on if it is or not!). I love this highlight because of how you can customize it! There is a pearl, pink, and golden shade. Wow, mixed together is the perfect mixture of the three. It is also slightly chunky, but also creamy at the same time. It is BLINDING on the cheeks. Makeup Revolution also has four different shimmer brick options so there should be a shade for everyone!
I hope this helps to provide you with some amazing cheaper options for highlighters that will help you glow, glow, glow. Although these products are cheaper in price, they are not lacking in quality.
