I am the first to admit that I am a highlighter junkie. At last count, I had over 20 highlighters for the face, so it is an understatement to say that I didn't need to get any of the Colourpop Highlighters. But given their remarkable price point ($8 each) and how much I love the Colourpop Eyeshadows, ordering them was a no brainer.
|Clockwise from the Top: Highly Waisted, Teasecake, Wisp, Smoke n' Whistles, Hippo|
|Bottom to Top: Hippo, Smoke n' Whistles, Wisp, Teasecake, Highly Waisted|
|R to L: Hippo, Smoke n' Whistles, Wisp, Teasecake, Highly Waisted|
The finish of all of the highlighters is listed as 'Pearlized' on the Colourpop website, but they do vary a bit, with some being more shimmery vs. metallic vs. glittery vs. duo-chrome, and so on. I think I will be able to wear Hippo and Smoke n' Whistles year round (and maybe even Teasecake with the right blush), but on my pale skin in the dead of winter, Wisp and Highly Waisted might be too dark.
Overall, I think the variety of shades available make these some of the most unique and covetable highlighters on the market. You may not need them, but you need them, if you get my drift.
