Highlighting: Stripes are IN!

How-to: pick up all or one shade of striped powder. Sweep over face and neck—even chest—for a natural-looking allover glow, or spot-apply to highlight apples of cheeks.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact:

These shades work beautifully as highlight colors for cheeks or anywhere you want to add shimmer.

Mineralize Skinfinish:

Each offers a colourwave of four shimmering shades in a range of light to dark. Use all over the face to create a low/sheer luminous finish or apply in tones of light and/or dark to highlight, contour or add dimension to eyes, cheeks or brows.

CARGO BeachBlush™:

combining four complementary shades that when swept together, provide a perfect balance of color - the radiance of a newly flushed face and the glow of a lasting summertime tan.

Sephora Luminous Rose Trio:

Shed a little light on your look with our palette featuring three glowing shades of shimmer. For dramatic results, buff them over your cheeks, eyes, shoulders, and décolletage anywhere you dare to bare.

J.A.N.E Shimmering Blushes:

Combination of oil-free light-diffusing shimmering blush creates a luminous glow. Comes in a convenient compact with mirror and brush!

Overall: They all do a great job, but of course price does makes a difference in the sparkle ;)
