Let’s Just Get to the Point:
If you’re a fan of pastel, rainbow or holographic highlighters and like to play with different formulas to layer your glow, you’re going to want to try these shimmery, long-lasting jelly wonders.
If You Want to Know More:
Anytime I use highlighter, there is a certain area of my face, directly under my eyes but still high up on my cheeks, that no matter how hard I try, I end up somehow getting product there. The problem with having shine in this zone is that I end up looking oily or shiny, and that’s not the kind of “see it from outer space” kind of shine I want. I hate when my highlighter travels to that unwanted zone and I end up looking more sweaty and less gilded.

What I like so much about the Nuest Magical Jelly Highlighters ($28), besides the variety of colors available (shades Ruby Kiss, Gold Rush, Twinkle Star, Pink Luster and Mettalic Bronze) is the precise application you can achieve with the thin, gelatinous liquid. The shimmer and sheen is concentrated enough that one or two layers can go a long way, but you’re left with more glimmer than glitter, and thankfully it stays put and doesn’t slide or fade. Once you start highlighting, it’s hard to stop—I use it under my eyebrows, my Cupid’s bow, high up on my cheekbones, and on my shoulders and legs for that extra celestial glow.
Because the quick-drying formula is so light (they’re water-based, so they feel less bouncy and creamy than Farsali’s Jelly Beam highlighter), it’s easy to swipe on and get a great color payoff that is subtle but buildable, and never sticky or goopy. If you love to catch the light on your cheekbones to reveal a holographic sheen or a red, pink, bronze or golden shimmer, you’re going to want to add these little jellies to your face and body glow collection.
