    i love and adore trace gold powder blush, you could also use vanilla pigment.
    Theres a light in me that shines brightly, and they can try but they cant take that away from me.

    I agree with Trace Gold and you should also try Honour, its heavy on the sparkle so you'll need a light hand with it. GOOD LUCK!

    I love Warmed MSF, it's LE though. You can probably do Trace gold blush instead. Also, I like using Natual Flare beauty powder for highlight.

    ok this is my favorite one, I am NW45 I use MAC peachtwist as a highlight and NARS Mounia as a contour, buff it out with a 187 it looks really good.

    I recently got Ambering Rose blush its a really pretty one also.

    I think the key to making your highlight stand out is to have a contour color. Sweet As Cocoa should work just fine just get a darker blush to contour your cheeks and it should work.

    MAC Trace Gold blush and the Flashtronic mineralized shadows! By Jupiter and Mercurial and even Techtonic are gorgeous highlights. I'm looking forward to trying out Nars Albatross one day soon.

    Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

    Like most everyone, I LOVE Nars Albatross. Vanilla's a close second only because it's so messy (haven't gone around to pressing yet.) On colder days though, I use Nars Copacabana because the cream stick formula doesn't dry me out as fast or Smashbox Skin Tint in Radiance if I want a more tanned glow.

    Trace Gold, for sure. Also a Nars MA used Abysinnia (sp?) e/s on me as a cheek highlight.

    some highlights i love: melon pigment, honour, golden bronze iridescent loose powder, new msf duo's dark and deep dark. there are also blushes that leave a beautiful glow on the cheek: format, ambering rose, sweet as cocoa, sunbasque, margin. Those are a few you could try. HTH!

    NARS Albatross!! I also really like smashbox artificial lights, I pat them on over my foundation (under powder foundation though) and they look flawless!

    The golden side of the dark and deep dark New View MSF, and the highlighter side of the Sculpt and Shape duo!

    Lately I've been loving a highlight/lowlight combo of:
    Highlight: Vanilla pigment
    Lowlight: Golden Bronze Iridescent Powder and/or Woodwinked (I know it sounds weird, but it turns out like goldy brown magic)
    currently NC42, golden undertones

    Right now i'm currently using the lighter shade in my new view mineralize skinfinish duo as my highlight. it works pretty well. I own the natural/highlight duo in dark. and i'm Nc45/50.

    I use Belightful or Vanilla pigment. Sometimes Melon. Belightful is my fave, I really want to try Albatross though.

    Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

    If you find albatross to be too light, NARS Luster is good as a highlight as well

    I use Vanilla pigment, it's wonderful! I've also been using the MSF Duo highlighter which is even better. Now and then I use Fafi and Barbie Loves Mac beauty powders which are nice on a night out.
