  1. I go easy with highlighters as they can look so overdone very easily, a little goes a very long way! I haven't purchased one for a long time but have received one in a prize – as part of a Natio Contour kit and its perfect.

  2. I agree with Hayley. We don’t do drugstores here in Australia.
    I almost bought the Maybelline one a while back, but I’ll admit that I’m a bit of makeup snob, and fell in love with an alternative at Mecca.

  3. Still looking for a good one, in therms of the shade. On my skin "champagne" is dull and invisible, so boring. Golds are just awful. And so hard to find a good flattering pink cool toned ones

  4. Love highlighters! I have been tempted by the Maybelline one for so long, I think I need to give in. I recently purchased the Revolution x Soph highlighter palette and am really enjoying that so far.
