If you’re a fan of a strong highlighter
, listen up: Bouncy, jelly formulas are here to amp up your glow, girl. Pressed powders can get the job done, but if you’re after a truly glistening look, a hydrating gel-based option is your best bet. Read on to see seven jelly highlighters that serve up major shimmer.
Wet N Wild MegaCushion Highlight ($6):
This affordable cushion highlighter houses a light-as-air formula that’s actually fun to apply. Dab your makeup sponge or finger in the product and blend, blend, blend for a glimmering look.
Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter ($32):
Searching for a buildable and
moisturizing beam? Give this option a try. Its unique texture helps the product melt into your skin, so you’re left with a lit-from-within radiance that you can amp up or wear muted.
Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator ($26):
One application of this cream-gel will give you a natural sheen, but adding on extra layers will make you truly twinkle. The finish is translucent, so no matter how much you apply, your skin will always shine through underneath.
Givenchy Limited Edition Mémoire de Forme Highlighter ($45):
This bouncy highlighter works on your face and
your bod, so your cheekbones can shine just as brightly as your collarbones. And it's comprised of 72 percent water, so you can tend to your hydration needs as you beautify.
FARSÁLI Jelly Beam Illuminator/Highlighter ($40):
Beauty babes went crazy when this highlighter launched, thanks to its mirror-like shine — so much so that it instantly sold out. We’re told it’ll be back in stock for the holidays though, so add it to your wish list.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelée ($45):
A couple taps of this bronzer-meets-illuminator gives you both definition and luminosity. Its universally flattering hue looks gorgeous on all skin tones, so it’s a safe starter if you’re just warming up to highlighter.
Lancôme Cushion Highlighter ($39):
This cushion compact was inspired by Parisian lights and snowflakes (seriously!), so you know that you’ll get a dazzling, dewy look wherever you go.
