Jelly Highlighters Will Give You The Dewiest Glow — Even In Winter

There are a few magical things in this world. There's the Do Not Disturb iPhone feature, bath bombs, coffee, the city of Paris, and now... jelly highlighters. Yes, powders get the job done, but these jelly formulas glide onto your cheekbones as a gel then set on your skin like a powder. The result is a glistening glow that was once only achievable post-workout.
And not only does the bouncy texture of this product give your skin some extra hydration, but there's also the fact that it blends easily with a tap of your fingers — no brush necessary. Long gone are the chalky streaks that we didn't blend enough and then labeled #glowgoals.
This year many brands have released jelly pigments that give the glazed, lit-from-within look that doesn't require the Kira Kira app. So, if you're looking to glisten, here are the best jelly highlighters to add to your collection. And contrary to the words of Destiny's Child, you are indeed ready for this jelly.
