Holiday Gift Guide: Luxury Highlighters

As promised, here is a new “Holiday Gift Guide” feature, and this time it is all about those luxuriuos highlighters. Because we have to glow for the festive season, am I right?

Probably the most desired highligher palette this season will be Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Powder – Surreal Light, and there are also some gorgeous variants other Christmas collections, especially Lancome. But what other highlighters are worth your attention?

Burberry Gold Glow Pressed Powder, $68 from Saks

How beautiful is this gem with a LE, golden packaging. Gold Glow, a radiance-boosting pressed powder delicately scented with My Burberry.  Use the brush to highlight cheekbones, nose, shoulders and décolletage for a natural, radiant glow.

Trish McEvoy Light & Lift Face Color Duo, $68 from Nordstrom

I had to include Trish, as her face products are some of the best, I am a huge fan. Here is how this new release is described: “The soft, weightless powders glide on evenly and invisibly for a naturally lit-from-within look. Apply the champagne tone to areas you wish to highlight, and the bronze where sun naturally kisses your face for a warm, lifted effect. Blend the two shades for an all-over glow.”

Now, this last product is not exactly a highlighter but I still wanted to include the Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder, $38 from  Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus

“A multi-purpose setting and finishing powder that perfects as it sets. Adds the sheerest hint of complexion-brightening colour and leaves skin with a flattering, candlelit glow. Multiply the effects by applying with different brushes to customize your finish and coverage. The soft, luminous finish leaves skin with a natural, all-over glow. Sets your makeup without mattifying your skin.  Has a soft-focus effect that subtly blurs the look of fine lines and imperfections. Doesn’t settle into fine lines or pores and never looks cakey.”

Available in 6 shades, shown in N1.
