  1. OMG Shelley, your list is amazing! Just the fact that you’ve tried so many highlighters is Incredible. I’ve been wondering about the highlighter drops from CoverFX so glad to see them at the top of your list

  2. Glad to see some great drugstore picks make the cut!

  3. I'm a HUGE fan of Hourglass, but am looking into MILK for a new Cruelty-Free highlighter. Also happy to see CF Wet'n'Wild "Lilac to Reality" made the cut!

  4. Yes to hourglass ambient strobe metallic, it also made it to my list

  5. I see some of my own wishlist items on there!

  6. My favourite for the year was Lancome's Glow Subtil. It was actually a cream highlighter, but I adore how it looks on me.

  7. I've been a big fan of highlighter this year, with some of my favorites being Melt Cosmetic Stargazer, Ittse Goal Digger, and Wet n Wild Precious Petals. I've got a few more to play with yet that I think I'm going to love as well!

  8. LOL, most people try to narrow down their list but with your love of highlighters it's obvious that you can't! I've been using the POP Beauty ones and the new Milani ones a lot lately.

  9. From your list, I actually only have tried one of them (the Fenty Beauty highlighter). You might like the Makeup Geek Highlighters!

  10. Great list! Always enjoy seeing others faves!

  11. I love to see what others are enjoying in the makeup world each year!

  12. I always love seeing round ups! Highlighters are one of those tricky products for me, weird skin tone thing, so having a hand list for my trip to Ulta or Sephora is super handy!!!

  13. I still haven't tried Natasha Denona! I think I'll splurge on one of her palettes in 2018 :)

  14. My highlighter selection is severely lacking. I Need to get some of these stat!!
