List Rules Vote up the blinding highlighters you can’t wait to swatch for yourself!

Stop debating over the five different highlighters you have waiting in your Amazon cart. Just grab your beauty guru's favorite highlighter, instead.

Seriously, YouTube shouldn't just be your go-to spot for makeup tutorials and fresh beauty ideas; it’s the perfect place to find product recommendations, too. If you’re in the market for a new highlighter (and aren't we all?), look no further than the top highlighters used by beauty bloggers. 

The highlighters that beauty YouTubers recommend aren’t all expensive, either. NikkieTutorials’s and ItsMyRayeRaye’s go-to formulas clock in at under $15!

NikkieTutorials thought ColourPop's Super Shock Highlighter was a metallic eyeshadow when she first saw it. That's how pigmented it is! Lunch Money is her favorite highlight shade from the collection. Get yourself the same blinding glow for only $8.
