    Cheeks: Nars Albatross
    Brow: Wet n Wild Creme Brulee
    Face: Physicians Formula Heart Powder….whatever its called :)

  18. Hunter

    Best cheek highlighter? Smashbox’s Prizm Shimmer is the most incredible highlighter. It catches the light and never looks disco, perfect for all ages. Even a little under the eyes brightens up the whole face in a very subtle way.

    For a more dramatic highlight, a la Kardashian or whatnot, The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer has an amped-up champagnee shimmer that is really fun, and NARS New Order is great for fun disco glitter that is still not too chunky and stays on beautifully without migrating.

    Best brow highlighter? NARS Multiple in Copacabana or Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin are both great for inner corner or browbone.

    Best face highlighter? Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer mixed in with any foundation or better yet tinted moisturizer gives such a beautiful, natural glow. Use more or less depending on how glowy you want to get.

    I love highlighters! I could talk about them all day :)

    * Best cheek highlighter? MAC cream colored base in Shell
    * Best brow highlighter? MAC blanc type. not big into shimmer on the brow bone, but if i had to i’d say something with a really fine shimmer, like ricepaper

    Best brow highlighter: Inglot 330 with a bit of MAC Ricepaper is heavenly!

    All I can say is I love all of Benefit’s highlighters, they really know what they’re doing in that department!

    I like reading the other comments because I had no idea there were highlighters that worked for the whole face!

  32. Em

    MAC strobe lotion gives an awesome sheen that can be used all over the face (when mixed with lotion or foundation). Benefit Girl Meets Pearl is really pretty on the cheeks, and I usually reach for MAC Short Shorts or Naked Lunch for an eye highlighter.

  33. sunny

    cheek: Dior Amber Diamond (though for all you drugstore lovers out there, you need to check out NYX bronzing stix- #1 for light skinned ladies or #3 for darker skinned-they are super fabulous)

    brow: MAC ricepaper eyeshadow (drugstore: revlon toasted marshmallow-though it may be limited edition)

    face: MAC luster drops in sun rush (drugstore: just tried Boots No7 skin illuminator, pretty great stuff)
