I feel like these can be so versatile, but they often don’t mix well with foundation on me. Either they break it up and move it when used over the top, or mixed in they make my foundation wear away quickly. I would love to find one that plays well with foundation for an oily skinned girl who needs budge proof makeup. The colour pop formula is more of a mousse, so I find that to be the best compromise, as it’s not too wet.

I love how much more naturally extreme liquid highlight can look at times (if that makes sense). But I also love to mix them in with foundations for radiance. Some liquid highlights drive me crazy when they pick up the foundation you have on underneath.

I would love to try this as I’ve tried dewy setting spray and dewy finish makeup and I still look matte. But what product and color would do the job without changing the color of your foundation? Thanks!

Just like yourself, Christine, I am definitely one who’d much rather mix a liquid highlighter with my foundation to give my skin back some radiance that matte foundation can rob from ones skin. I only have one that I will dare apply as regular highlighter, and it’s by Nyx.

Great for a more dewy look or to mix with/layer under foundation. They can end up being a bit overkill if you’re not careful though.

I am sorry, but no raves for me. I tend to find that they make my complexion look way too ‘dewy’ and I end up looking like an oil slick. Plus I really don’t have the skill to apply them properly.

I’ve only tried one, but I’m not a fan. If I put it on top of my foundation, it’s too much… And my face does the all-over glow look just fine on its own after a while, so I definitely don’t want to be mixing it in.

I’ve never used liquid only powder highlighters. I’m on the oily side and also have large pores that I’m afraid I’ll accentuate. Plus my usual foundation is a mineral based powder and not sure how a liquid would mix/apply over it. The closest I’ve come to liquid is the benefit stick (sample) highlighter. The name escapes me at the moment…it’s a light golden colored highlighter. Anyways, it didn’t wow me. If I highlight, I have to be really careful because I get oily and highlight+oil is not a good look on me. If I ever find a liquid matte foundation that I like then maybe i’ll try the trick of adding some liquid highlighter to it. Until then I doubt that I have much use for it in my routine.

I should definitely try adding them to my foundation! I always stay away from them, because I always find that my foundation messes up when I layer anything over it!

I love them for when I forego foundation and want a glowy look on my skin (esp on days my skin is looking a little lackluster). I think I’ll try mixing with my foundation to see how I like that for the winter months. Great tip 🙂

I hatee when liquid highlighters pick up my foundation/blush. If I’ve got a heavy face on, I’ll always reach for powder. I find the Becca liquid highlight to be the best over foundation, if I go that way.

I don’t own any Wetnwild came up with a new selection and a whole bunch of eyeshadows, blushes and fun stuff!. That’s an awesome tip Christine. I will be following it! Always forget to do it. Thanks!

I’m going to try the mixing with my foundation trick at some point (I have two of the Cover FX Enhancer Drops). Also, I’d like to do a very tiny amount in my body lotion for my decolletage at the same time just to see if I can get a nice cohesive effect. I *have* put it in my body lotion, but it was more than I needed and it was too different from my perpetually-matte face. Time to try again.
