Swatch: Drugstore Highlighter

For having an oily skin, I shouldn't have been bothered with finding products to "highlight" my face, as it tends to do its job quite naturally. However, I still think highlighting is as important as contouring, to accentuate areas you want to pop and gives your face more dimension when it comes to makeup.

Still, I wasn't ready to splurge on it. So I went the usual route, drugstores.

After contemplating for a while, going in & out of plenty of drugstores, reading plenty of reviews, I've finally settled with these two products.

 Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Bronzer "Reserve Your Cabana" & Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer "Tiki"
(isn't it funny that the names are all beach-related? lol)

For reference I am NC35 or NC37 during summer months, and I found these two are the most natural yet still impactful highlighters.
Reserve Your Cabana is more subdued, it's almost like a lighter face powder with sheen. Whereas Tiki has more prominent and it gives you the most beautiful effect when applied on cheekbones, bridge of your nose, or even on cupid's bow.
Reserve Your Cabana is sold for around $4-$5 at my local drugstore and I believe Tiki is about $9-$10 at Walmart. So far I'm happy to report they didn't break me out and I really like the quality these product have so if you're looking for affordable and good quality drugstore highlighters, these two are definitely try-worthy.

Thanks for reading.
