Primark Makeup: Testing Liquid Highlighters


The final of three posts from my Primark Makeup haul this month is all about the liquid highlighters! I adore highlighters and they really are one of the prettiest makeup products to pick up. I have a variety of seven different liquid highlighters here and not one of them cost over £3.50, so read on to hear my thoughts…
First up we have the PS Strobe Face & Body Highlighting Cream £3, which came in three different shades but I opted for Oyster Pink as I thought it would suit my skin tone best, although the bronzier tone would be perfect to add to a tan come Summer. There’s 40mls of product here which is super impressive for the price and once applied to the skin, it blends in beautifully and gives the prettiest shimmer to the skin without being glittery. This would also work really well mixed in with your foundation for a super glowy, dewy look.
We then have the K-Pop After Glow Liquid Highlighters £2.50 each, which come in glass tubes with a sponge tipped applicator. There doesn’t appear to be any shade names on these, but I have the purple-lidded one and the gold-lidded highlighter. The packaging is super cute and Kawaii-themed, and is a pink/purple toned highlighter with tiny flecks of iridescent pink glitter running throughout it. The Gold-lidded version is slightly similar to the purple-lidded one once applied to the skin, but more champagne and pink-toned rather than a purpley-blue hue. The thing I love most about these are their staying power - once applied they don’t budge and I actually quite like using these as eyeshadows too!
Next up are the Custom Glow Liquid Highlighters £3.50 each, which again came in other shades but I chose Silver and Rose Gold. There are lots of versions of these on the market, and at £3.50 they are excellent value. They come in little glass bottles with a pipette applicator so you can control the amount of product you are using. The consistency isn’t the best but once blended into the skin they look really pretty, with the Silver giving a pretty silver sheen to the skin and Rose Gold giving a stunning pinky peach finish, which is definitely my favourite as peach is my current favourite makeup shade. 
Last but not least I chose the Insta Girl Glow Up Liquid Highlighters £2.50 each in the shades Obsessed and Like. They come in a lip gloss type tube and again with a sponge applicator tip and consistency wise I would say these are a favourite of mine. It feels high quality when applying and they blend in perfectly, to give a stunning glow without being overly sparkly or glittery. Obsessed is a beautiful peach shimmer and Like is a pearlescent finish with a pink tint to it, which would suit a lighter skin tone. I really am super impressed with all of these products and simply cannot get over the prices, compared to higher end products at ten times the price!
You can find all these fabulous liquid highlighters and more instore at Primark.

All the Loves,
