The Throwdown - High-end Highlighters from Sephora

by - January 25, 2018

Just got home from appliance and furniture hunting.  It was stressful AF but I also felt excited somehow knowing that I'm almost halfway through this mentally-challenging move-in process.  There's still a long list of things to work on not mentioning, the money involved but I'm pretty confident that it would be manageable.  It's tough and could get very overwhelming, but still doable with tiny baby steps at a time. 😚

Anyway, this post might seem a bit redundant because I've already done a first impression video about these 4 highlighters from Sephora and I have even released individual reviews.  However, I thought it's better to put all of them in one post again for a more complete comparison.

Each has a hefty price tag and yes, I'd agree if you say that there are drugstore dupes for these or even other better and cheaper options, but for makeup junkies and for those who would like to gratify themselves with a high-end highlighter, this bunch is worth checking out.

So when shopping for a highlighter, what are you looking for - formula or intensity?  I bet it's the latter.  😃

Here are the swatches in natural lighting (same order as the next photo).

The below swatches are in natural lighting as well, but dimmer.

Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter in Blinded by Light

So it's finally time to reveal my top pick! 

Actually, it's hard for me to say one favorite out of all four or wait, make that three because the Blinded by Light is at the bottom of the list.  But if you insist, I'd say it's Becca Opal and Benefit Watt's Up is the runner up.  

They're equally intense and both blinding.  Whenever I have them on, it's like I'm on "slay" mode.  Haha! 😉

I also realized that I grab Becca Opal more often than I do with my other highlighters.  But yea, I would still be okay with any.  

How about you?
