Test Fac­tor

We tried these beau­ties so you can high­light your best bits. Oh, and they’re all less than a fiver. You. Are. Wel­come


MUA Luxe High­light Shim­mer in Light Gold

Lookʼs Ly­dia: This high­lighter is so af­ford­able, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the pig­men­ta­tion and sheen it gives when you blend it in. It makes skin look re­ally ex­pen­sive. Carly: Ap­par­ently Khloé Kar­dashian is a mas­sive fan of this high­lighter, so I was su­perex­cited to use it be­fore a night out. It worked well against my base and looked cool in self­ies.

Barry M Ra­di­ant Rod High­lighter

Lookʼs Ly­dia: This takes a lit­tle more buff­ing but gives amaz­ing results. You don’t need that Snapchat fil­ter if you team it with the rest of your make-up. It also cre­ated a sheeny SS16 lid when I used it in­stead of an eye­shadow. Carly: I liked this be­cause it felt light on the skin. I had to ap­ply a few lay­ers to see the shim­mery­ness, but it was worth it.

Col­lec­tion Speedy High­lighter in Pearl Sheen

Lookʼs Ly­dia: This was the light­est in colour but still very pretty. It worked re­ally well when I lay­ered a pow­der high­lighter over the top, giv­ing a more de­fined fin­ish. Carly: This was nice, but I like my high­lighters to be more sheeny. I’ll be rec­om­mend­ing it to friends who wear very nat­u­ral make-up, though – it’d be per­fect for them.

LA Girl Vel­vet Hi-lite Con­tour Stick in Cash­mere

Lookʼs Ly­dia: The prod­uct glided over my cheeks like a dream , leav­ing a sheen that caught the light when­ever I moved my head. I wore it on a date with my boy and even he com­mented on my com­plex­ion! Carly: Loved this. I pat­ted the shim­mer in a lit­tle with my fin­gers to make sure it was blended and en­joyed the com­pli­ments I got when wear­ing it.
