Share your highlighter ramblings here without fear of being judged for your affliction :D So, thus far I've accumulated quite a few highlighters, I have quickly just compiled this list of highlighters I have from the top of my head in my excitement to get this thread started as soon as possible. Current stash (not at home so it is definitely longer than this): Dior amber diamond Jemma Kidd Dewey glow in rose gold Charlotte tilbury bronze and glow Benefit high beam Benefit sun beam Elizabeth Arden rose gold Estée Lauder tease (could be used as blush/highlight) Estée Lauder topaz chameleon Bobbi brown rose shimmer brick Becca pressed shimmering skin perfecter in rose gold Too faced snow bunny (defo a highlighter on me) Urban decay blush trio in strip (incl a highlighter shade) Hourglass ambient lighting palette Mac whisper of gilt Mac definitely defined Mac double definition Mac perfect topping (recent version) Mac stereo rose Mac soft and gentle Mac Sharon mineralise duo (Defo have loads more mac but it would be overkill if I included them) So include in your posts : Most loved/cherished: charlotte tilbury bronze and glow - my newest addition and the rose gold packaging is just amaze balls. Currently using: Jemma Kidd Dewey glow in rose gold (if you can still find this get it!!! It's a a cream formulation but dries down and leaves the best natural glow, I use this EVERYDAY) Could live without: bobbi brown rose shimmer brick and potentially some of the mac, which I overlook a lot basically cos they all look the same to me in the black packaging whilst riffling through in a rush. Let me know what your faves are - I await eagerly for your responses :)

In envy of your collection!!!! How are you finding the new chanel on your skin tone ? It hasn't released in the uk yet but I'm anticipating it may be too white to wear on my skin tone :( (nc35-40)

So, in no particular order, my favorites are ones that I reach for on a regular basis and I have to make a conscious effort NOT to use them:
Estee Lauder - Modern Mercury
Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow
Becca - Opal
Estee Lauder - Heat Wave

IMHO and experience, no one that I have tried other than Becca has come close to EL who has the absolute best formula---It is smooth, It is silky, it is long-lasting.

I ordered the new Chanel and it should arrive sometime this week. I have Chanel Delice which in photos, looks a lot like the new Platine---stark white. I enjoy Delice on
but I find that I have to really blend & buff it more than is required with other highlighters. Once well blended and buffed I love the soft white glow of Delice. I'm hoping
Platine is more finely milled than Delice.

My favorite topic! Medgal - I should just cut and paste your list as it would take me forever to get started. I love how you added descriptions. I'll post my list later. With this last purchase, I am going to have to start a new drawer to store them in.

It is hard to pick favorites as I fall in love with the latest one purchased until I buy a new one. I have been using Mac Scene to be Seen or Mac Perfectly Poised almost daily for the last few months. I added in Mac Star Wonder in the last few weeks.

Has anyone tried the kevyn aucoin celestial powder or the cream duo he puts out? I have fair skin and pink undertones, and am wondering if it would suit me?

Jeez, I can't compete with you all at all. LOL But I will be in here to get tips.

Where do you put your highlight?
I usually place it on the higher part of my cheeks and a wee bit down the center of my nose and the tip. Sometimes I want to shine like a diamond and sometimes I want a glow. I use switch product accordingly.

**Hangs head in shame---if I don't maintain an inventory document w/ descriptions in most cases, I totally lose track of what I have. /this phenomenon is called Product Overload. Have you ever completely used a highlighter?

I'm afraid I haven't Browyn----and now I'm even afraid to research it. I'm too weak.

I have the mary lou manizer but it irritates my skin and emphasizes my pores unfortunately. It's a beautiful true champagne. It does work well on my eyes at least.
