While a quieter year for highlighters, there were still plenty of new (and new-to-me) shades that caught my eye. Pat McGrath and Natasha Denona both released individual highlighters, but both brands could stand to have full ranges of highlighters/blushes in general.
I also tested out JD Glow’s Highlighters this past year with Serenity earning an editor’s recommendation at the time of review. Rare Beauty’s Luminizers were also a highlight–ha, ha, ha–within the brand’s offerings and of highlighters released in 2020.
If you’re unfamiliar with how I like to do my year-end favorites, here’s the low down: I pull from the products I reviewed in 2020, regardless of whether they were new, limited edition, or an established range I’ve only just gotten around to reviewing. These are personal favorites, so they may or may not be the highest rated products reviewed during the year (though they will tend to be better rated, naturally!). (You can check out best of 2019 if you missed last year’s.)

Your Year in Review: Highlighter Edition — Part 2
I thought it would be interesting to read through how readers used products throughout the year, what favorites emerged, what products fell by the wayside… so, if you want to join in, copy and paste the questions below and add your answers via a comment!
- What type of highlighter (cream, powder, liquid, etc.) did you use the most this past year?
- Do you opt for subtle or intense highlighters?
- Do you think you’ll wear more, less, or the same amount of highlighter in 2021?
