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



There was a marginally better mix of brands with new-to-me/new highlighter releases in 2021 (five!), though ColourPop certainly had the most numerous releases in the year (which is not a surprise). Here are my top seven out of 46 shades reviewed!

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 (under $15) if that makes sense to you since there is also an over $15 highlighter post coming shortly!

  • 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?
