In 2016, these two lines “highlighter on point” and “dat glow tho” were the most favourite compliments of all the makeupholics out there. Am I right or am I right?! Yeah, Of course I’m right. 2016 was all about highlighters and strobing creams. Everyone ditched the flat-matte makeup looks and decided to get their glow game strong with highlighters. The makeup brands didn’t disappoint us either. Each and every single one of them launched stunning highlighters, one after another, and gave us a lot of options to choose from!
From simple champagne highlighter to bold rainbow highlighter and black, onyx ice highlighter, we have seen it all so far! I don’t know where would this trend take us to in the year 2017, but we will see! For now, let’s talk about some super affordable highlighters that are easily available in India as well as internationally. I know, I know, my affordable list posts are supposed to go live only on Saturdays, but I wasn’t able to complete this one as I have been terribly sick. So please excuse me for this time. Here goes the list of affordable highlighters! I have divided them in two price range – Under Rs.500 and under Rs.1000.
The Ultimate List Of Affordable Highlighters Available In India Under Rs.1000/-
My list posts are always incomplete without Makeup Revolution’s products! They have a collection of 4 highlighters called Vivid Baked which cost only Rs.260/- if you buy them from their official website, TAMBeauty. On Indian shopping portals, their price varies from Rs.600/- to Rs.850/-. Though there is a huge price difference in India, these highlighters are still worth a shot. You can buy the pink lights highlighter over here for Rs.650. Also Check Out – Makeup Revolution London Vivid Shimmer Bricks
MUA has many products in their Undress Your Skin range. I didn’t know they had this pretty highlighter too, until I saw it on Amazon India. It’s priced at only Rs.735 and its swatches are to-die-for! Also Check Out – MUA Undress Me Too Eye Shadow Palette
Lakme Absolute Highlighter & Shimmer Bricks
Lakme launched shimmer bricks and a highlighter not too long ago. They are made in collaboration with the very famous designer, Sabyasachi. A lot of YouTubers from India have given a thumbs up to the shimmer bricks, but I feel that they are too overpriced especially since we all consider Lakme as a drugstore brand.
The duo stick is a two in one product. On one side, it has a cream contour stick and on the other side it has a cream highlighter stick. The highlighter part isn’t too over the top, it gives more of a natural and candle lit glow. For the price, I think it’s a really good product by Maybelline.
The Revlon Highlighting Palette is a dupe of Bobbi Brown shimmer brick. Well, a lot of brands have already given us affordable options for the same type of shimmer bricks, but people still love and trust the Revlon ones!
Faces has 3 shades of highlighters in metaliglow range – Opal, Champagne & Topaz. All three of them are really very beautiful. You can see their swatches online. They come in a liquid form so you can also mix them with your foundation or body lotion for that glowing and radiant skin!
NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator
It’s a lightweight illuminator-cum-highlighter in liquid form and has pretty decent ratings on Nykaa. You can get it in 4 different shades.
The Ultimate List Of Affordable Highlighters Available In India Under Rs.500/-
This essence highlighter is a favourite of one of the most famous YouTubers – Tati. And guess how much does it cost?! Keep guessing…
Only Rs.349! Grab it without thinking twice. Essence surely is a trustable drugstore brand which doesn’t sell their products at unreasonable prices in India.
Sivanna highlighters overload! They have so many stunningly gorgeous highlighters which people can’t stop raving about! Just search about them on Google to know why people love them so much.
OK, this one is a little over Rs.500 (Rs.525 on official website) but you can get it on discounted prices online. It’s not like a full-on highlighter, but it can give your skin a sheer glow. Besides that, it’s very easy to use because it comes in a pen form. You can get it for Rs.420 over here on Nykaa.
