In comparison to other colors, pink doesn’t get the love it deserves in the makeup world. Maybe because there’s a very fine line between looking pretty in pink and a clown who accidentally applied way too much blush.
Nonetheless, we love our pink blushes for their ability to add a rosy pop of color to our cheeks, when done correctly. Pink lipsticks have a way of complimenting everyone and the pink eyeshadow opportunities are endless. Our favorite pink makeup product, though, has to be a pink highlighter. It has a way of giving your skin a Sunkissed glow no matter the season and is flattering on a range of different skin tones.
Ahead, we created a list of our favorite pink highlighters that will make you swoon so hard, you’ll never pick up another highlighter hue again.

The pressed-gel powder is packed with luminous micro-pearls that catch and reflect the natural light for a beautiful and natural-looking sheen.
