These Under-$15 Highlighters Are Just As Good As Pricey Ones

We're the first to own up to our highlighter obsession. Cream or powder, subtle or shimmer, we don't discriminate between radiance-enhancing products. Our motto? You can never be too glowy.
One of our favorite things about strobing products is the vast number of variations on the market, all differing in formula, undertone, and intensity. The price, however, isn't always so alluring. Why? Most highlighters cost upwards of $20, which means an expansive collection isn't always feasible.
That's why we took it upon ourselves to find the very best highlighters that won't set you back more than $15. The best part? They totally deliver in pigment, texture, and longevity. It's time to get your shine on.
