Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Becca Moonstone, and more than once.
I live in a place where most people don’t have air conditioning, so I lean into the “shiny” look many of us have in the summer here.
I love going ham with highlighter in the summer.

Me too! Becca Moonstone. Love this one. RIP Becca.
Also panned a couple of cream ones by a brazilian organic brand, called Care Beauty. I find that cream highlighters are easier to hit pan

That I so rarely use them up is exactly the reason why I refrain from having too many in my collection. I have used up a tube of the CT highlighter wand, I panned and finished the highlighter section of the CT Filmstar Bronze and Glow, and I believe I might have panned a MAC MSF back in the day when those were all the rage.

My Becca Champagne Pop has a pretty big pan in it, about the size of a dime. I really hope to fully pan it sooner than later, but it’s so hard with highlighter!

If we are talking about highlighter as a product, none, since I never liked highlighters on me.
I use illuminating powders as highlighters, and I haven’t hit pan on one since the last time I owned MAC Emphasize (off course, discontinued).

Big time! I didn’t pan it but I just binned it, a half dead, with all my other CP SSSs. Major fave. And compared to the champagne and gold HLs, quite the rare beast. (Pun intended.)

Once upon a time Essence had a cream to powder highlighter called Soo Glow! I not only hit pan, but finished a whole compact AND got about halfway through another. But that was back in the day when highlighters were just becoming “a thing” and most were made with silicones. Soo Glow was the first cream highlighter in a color that worked on my skin (so, sooo pale) and didn’t have silicones. Now, of course, I’ve got about twenty other highlighters and all but one still has the pan design.

It happened once in my life time. I actually finished The Balm Betty Lou highlighter. I was so shocked I bought another one that I used 5 times max during 3 years. Sad. 🤣
