Top 5 Highlighters For Under 5 Pounds

By  | 

Highlighting has literally become one of the biggest crazes of 2015/2016. I wasn’t really in to it at first but then i discovered the power of a good highlight and now i’m 100% all for it.

However, highlighters can be so expensive literally because every single company has jumped on to the highlighting train and realized they can charge a lot of money and people will pay.

Who can blame them really?

That being said, you don’t need to pay a fortune for a good highlight. Of course the quality isn’t going to be as amazing as 30 pound highlight but, a cheap highlighter will still do the job and there are times when they can be even better so, let’s get on to my top 5 highlighters for under a fiver!



Top 5 Highlighters For Under 5 Pounds


If you have stumbled across this page and are waiting for some sort of pen or pencil to appear, I have to let you know now that you won’t see one…

A highlighter (if you don’t know!) is a makeup product that you apply to your face to highlight things like cheekbones, jawlines and eyebrows. It’s not for everyone but, it does look pretty cool if done right.

If highlighting is done along with contouring it can make your new skinny cheekbones protrude even more, it also looks so nice in the summer when the sun is shining but, anyway hopefully you get the point now!


#1  ‘Highlighting Shimmering Powder’

I love highlighters with a subtle golden glow, i feel like it just adds something to my finished look. Of course this isn’t for everyone but, if you’re in to gold/natural shimmers like me, this cheap highlighter is a wonderful addition.

Just like the highlighter above it has a ton of good reviews and for the price you can’t really go wrong.

#3 NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator

I personally feel like NYX have boomed over the past few months and undoubtedly so have their highlighters. I’ve swatched this highlighter on my hand beforehand and although I don’t own it, it’s probably one of the very few liquid highlighters i can actually get along with.

The shade ‘sunbeam’ is a shimmery, natural pink. I would apply this highlighter on the top of my cupids bow as it will just make your lips really pout. Of course you can apply it anywhere but that’s where I would head for!

This highlighter is another golden shimmery one. I had never heard of this particular brand but after scowering the internet for reviews and thoughts on this particular highlighter stick I really wanted to include it in my top 5 highlighter list.

It’s cheap (just over two pounds!!), it does its job and it’s easy to apply as it is in a handy stick form. So if you struggle with the application this shimmery gem has you covered.

#5 Technic Highlights Stick Cream Highlighter


Technic Highlights Stick Cream Highlighter in Bronzer

The reason I included this highlighter stick is because I feel like it was an underdog. Just like all of the other highlighters I researched it before including it and this one kept coming up.

Not everyone seems to really know about this particular highlighter despite a ton of people having fabulous things to say about it. It’s easy to use, it has a bronzed shimmery glow and is extremely inexpensive.
