Highlighters (Over $15) | 2021 Editor’s Favorites



Like with blush, there were more cream and liquid highlighters released in 2021 with less new powder releases. Out of just over 100 single highlighters I reviewed, you’ll find 14 of my very favorites shown below.

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 2021, 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 the best of 2020 posts if you missed last year’s.)

Your Year in Review: Highlighter Edition

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!

Feel free to break it down by price (over $15) if that makes sense to you since there was an under $15 highlighter post previously.

  • What was your most used highlighter? Least used?
  • Will you repurchase it or will you look for something new?
  • Was highlighter a big part of your routine in 2021?
