Nothing beats a nice, glowing highlighter that can give our face the radiant look you’ve been craving. One of the best highlighters on the market is undoubtedly the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife. This highlighter gives your whole face a shockingly powerful sheen. Just one swipe will have you shining brighter than a diamond. Honestly, could we ever expect less from the iconic Fenty Beauty brand created by none other than our favorite pop-star turned beauty-guru, Rihanna?

This highlighter is truly the stand-out item of her whole line. People just can’t seem to keep their hands off of this intoxicating highlighter. Its deep golden glow with warm undertones makes it perfect for basically every complexion. Unlike many other highlighters on the market, this one won’t leave our darker skin tone ladies with an ashy appearance. Rather, it will leave your face with an effortless glow that will catch eyes, no matter what occasion you wear it to.

The one and only major setback for this item is its hefty price tag. This highlighter is definitely one of the pricier items on the lengthy Fenty Beauty roster, coming in at a whopping $34. While we absolutely love this highlighter, we’re just not ready to shell out that much money every time we need to replenish our Trophy Wife stash.

That’s why we love finding amazing beauty dupes, instead. These shimmering alternatives can be found at your local drugstore or beauty department, and won’t empty your bank account. Why spend all of that money on one highlighter when you can stock up on these glowing beauties for a lower price?

Finally, you can get a luminous glow without going broke! So, don’t run out of cash for the sake of beauty, create a radiant and sheen-filled glow with these stellar drugstore highlighters instead.
