Tarte Exposed Tarteist PRO Glow Liquid Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff that was mostly opaque after three layers.

It’s a liquid highlighter in a squeeze-tube format that’s supposed to be buildable “from sheer to intense” with a more “hybrid gel-cream” texture that can be applied on its own or mixed in with base products. It had a creamier consistency–much denser and more gel-like compared to many highlighters–that stretches out well on the skin. It took a little longer to dry down, but it did set and did not feel tacky or wet afterward. I liked the versatility in coverage, as the more gel-like texture made it easy to spread, diffuse, and sheer out but did not sheer out too quickly (where building up would have become difficult). The highlighter worked well mixed with the two foundations I tried (Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea and Lancome Teint Idole) and did not overly warm them, just made them look a little dewier. It wore well for eight hours as a cheek highlighter.

Stunner

Tarte Stunner Tarteist PRO Glow Liquid Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a champagne gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The coverage was buildable from semi-sheer to opaque, but for totally opaque results, I would recommend applying a semi-sheer layer, allow it to set, and then go back with a little more but would just pat it over the areas you want to intensify the most and do minimal blending to avoid lifting any base products.

It’s a liquid highlighter in a squeeze-tube format that’s supposed to be buildable “from sheer to intense” with a more “hybrid gel-cream” texture that can be applied on its own or mixed in with base products. It had a creamier consistency–much denser and more gel-like compared to many highlighters–that stretches out well on the skin. It took a little longer to dry down, but it did set and did not feel tacky or wet afterward. It was fairly easy to use on bare skin, with foundation, or applied on top of liquid foundation or over loose powder. Used on its own as a cheek highlighter, it wore well for eight hours on me.

Tarte Spellbound Glow Rainbow Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light, golden pink with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. If you keep more toward the left side, it will appear warmer and less pink, and if you keep more toward the right side, it will appear cooler and less golden.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighter that’s supposed to impart an “ethereal, rainbow highlight” and can be used swirled together or more concentrated on a particular shade. Each strip is fairly narrow (think better suited for an eye brush), so swirled is the most practical way, and of course, you could lean a little warmer or a little cooler. It’s supposed to be long-wearing and pigmented. The consistency was rather dense but was smooth and blendable on the skin. The pigmentation was great, and it had a strong sheen, so despite the dense texture, a typical highlighting brush worked fine for moderate, buildable coverage. When I applied this at higher coverage, it did emphasize my skin’s natural texture a bit. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Gold Lights

Lancome Gold Lights Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid ($23.00 for 0.08 oz.) is light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that applied without issue to the skin, though I felt like it was easiest and fastest to work with fingertips for blending over a brush. The consistency was thin, a little mousse-y, and dried down so the wear was longer (seven and a half hours) but gave me enough time to work with it first.

The formula is described as buildable, though it is designed to give skin a “barely-there shimmer” and a “natural-looking glow.” It has a more unique, foamy, sponge-tipped applicator to disperse and apply the product, which I wasn’t in love with (did not seem to do well at blending, building, or doing anything other than transferring product from the interior to my face) and seemed to soak up quite a bit of product. The formula wasn’t as thin as a typical liquid highlighter, though it wasn’t thick or heavy either; almost like a watery mousse. I had the best luck blending with fingertips, which maneuvered and spread the product without lifting it. They dried down within a minute or so, and the wear time was between seven and eight hours. I’d describe the glow as light to moderate as the coverage was buildable from sheer to semi-sheer. Worth noting, the pen delivery system does not contain that much product, particularly when we’re talking about liquid highlighters.

Amber Lights

Lancome Amber Lights Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid ($23.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a dirty, medium gold with brownish undertones and a luminous finish. It seemed a little like an antique gold, though it seemed warmer and brighter than a true antique gold to my eye. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, a little mousse-y but still more like a liquid than anything else. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage that blended decently but had a tendency to look patchy (I tried using a few different blushes as well as fingertips and always saw the same, slightly uneven results). It lasted for eight hours on me.

Tom Ford Soleil Afterglow Soleil Contouring Compact ($108.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes a highlighter, blush, and bronzer housed in a white compact, which contains a ton of product (as it should, I suppose, at this price point!). Per the brand, all three are supposed to provide “sheer to medium coverage.” The only one that was true to the idea of “sheer to medium” was the bronzer, whereas the highlighter and blush were rather pigmented.
