3 of the best Drugstore Highlighters.

I guess I could be classed as a somewhat highlighter 'noob'. For the longest time I didn't wear nor own any highlighters whatsoever. I just figured since I suffered from oily skin, highlighter would only exacerbate that problem. 
Boy, have I changed my tune. It's now become one of my favourite aspects of makeup.
The Soap & Glory Glow All Out powder was my favourite drugstore highlighter for ages - as you can see from the picture, almost all of the logo's gone. It's the perfect shade of highlight for me (I don't get along well with bronzey highlights since my skin's so pale, I much prefer the pinky/champagney ones) as it adds the subtlest of sheens to the tops of my cheekbones. This one's more on the drugstore's pricier side at £11.00 but it's well worth it. 
As I said, the Soap & Glory contribution was my favourite...until I found this one - Makeup Revolution's Radiant Light in Exhale. This is the most beautiful highlighter I've ever seen. I ordered this from their website and I quite literally gasped upon opening. It's a gorgeous colour and gives off an equally gorgeous glow. I tend to only apply highlighter to my cheekbones, bridge of my nose and my cupid's bow as a rule. I use an eyeshadow for my brow highlight. For only £5.00 I may have to pick up the other two as they're really beautiful shades too.  
Lastly, is the No.7 Instant Radiance Highlighter. I'll be honest and say this isn't the one I typically reach for on a day to day basis as I much prefer a powder highlight on me, but this is the best cream offering I've come across. I find cream highlighters that come in a stick form (high end or low end), are more likely to take off some of my makeup when I'm applying it to anywhere - which is really, really annoying. It just ends up making pores more visible. However, this one doesn't do that which is why Iike it so much, but if this is also something you struggle with I'd stick to powder or liquid. After all, £9.95 still isn't in everyone's budget for a single product.
