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.

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter

Killawatt Collection

Shade: All shades really…

Price: $34

I love the Killawatt collection and I'm not just saying that because I Stan for Rihanna, but because these highlighters are so pigmented and long-lasting. The Killawatt highlighters gives you a flawless glowing finsh and comes in a duos and solo compacts so you can mix if you choose. They offer a variety of colors including Trophy Wife, Metal Moon, Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby, and more.

My favorite is the Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule. I love the rich, glittery, and pigmented rose gold finish. Whether you like this color combination or not, you definitely need to have at least one Killawatt compact in your collection.
