4 Highlighters You Need In Your Beauty Arsenal

I tried some of the highlighter game's cult favorites - here's what I thought about them.

Make-up

Whether I'm in full glam or a simple look, you can bet I'm wearing a highlighter. It adds such a glow and sparkle to your look — you can literally go from good to great with one product and who's not here for that?


I tend to try different types of highlighters, whether it's powder or cream — I really don't discriminate. As long as it's pretty and shinin', I'm good.

With all that being said, I tried a few highlighters and here's why you need to add them to your beauty arsenal.

Maybelline Master Chrome By Face Studio in Molten Peach

Shade: Molten Peach

Price: $5.99 - $9.99

This highlighter is bomb! I tried the Molten Peach shade and it's my favorite color from the line. It has a shiny, glittery, and warm metallic sheen that looks good on all skin tones and types. The Molten Peach has the same pinkish finish as the Molten Rose Gold shade, but a bit darker.

As far as the application, it has a very strong highlight, so a little goes a long way. Seriously, if you use too much, you'll be blinding. Also, it's not messy at all. I know some highlighters tend to have fall out, but I didn't experience that with this highlighter. It's easy enough to apply where you can use a brush or your fingers. Either way, you'll get a pretty good result.

The first time I learned about Kiki Ayers, it was through stumbling onto her PR business Instagram account, Ayers Publicity. I found myself in this rabbit hole of research, and as I continued to read up on the brainchild of what I saw to be a successful agency, I realized that what was actually gravitating me to her was her undeniable hustle and drive — something I know firsthand can't be taught or sold, you just have to have it.
