ICYMI: Fenty Beauty is absolutely slaying the makeup industry. This makeup line, started by none other than musician/fashionista/all-around Kween Rihanna Fenty, is one of the hottest cosmetics brands on the market for its stunning concoctions of skin tone-inclusive foundations, cream contour sticks, and matte lipsticks. But, one of the biggest best-sellers on the Fenty Beauty line is the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter ($34). This highlighter makes you glow to the Beauty Gods, and we can;t get enough of the magical sheen it brings to our faces. It’s high pigment and shocking shimmer give you the ultimate glow in just one swipe, so it’s no wonder that this beauty staple is a best-seller.
But, this highlighter comes with one setback we just can’t look over: the price. $34 just seems a bit too pricey for us bargain beauty hunters, especially since we’re religious highlight users that will eat this product up in no time. So, what’s a bargain-ista to do? Find the ultimate dupes, of course! We searched far and wide within the internet beauty community to find only the best dupes to this highlighter, at a fraction of the price. Check out some of our top picks for three of the most iconic Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter shades: “Trophy Wife,” “Metal Moon,” and “Moscow Mule!”
If you’re looking for the pure gold glitter and glow of Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in “Trophy Wife” on a budget, then this liquid highlighter from NYX Cosmetics will do just the trick for you. This shimmery highlighter will give you the perfect golden sheen in one simple swipe and blend, and it’s under $10! What we love about this highlighter is it’s easily bledning and building formula, which allows you to customize your glow from a subtle shimmer to a full-frontal glow that can be seen from outer space. So go ahead, go highlight-crazy with this jaw-dropping hue.
This iridescent white shade is basically an exact replica of Fenty Beauty’s Metal Moon Killawat Freestyle Highlighter! This pressed highlighter has a nearly blinding shimmer that’s perfect for those days when you want to be a little more extra with your makeup. This highlighter has such a great shimmer that you can also use it as an eyeshadow to add a pop of glitzy color to your eyelids. This is definitely one of our biggest weapons on our beauty utility belt.
“Moscow Mule” is one of the hottest shades of the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter, but unfortunately it’s part of a duo palette that comes with only half of the amount that we want. Until they release a full-size of “Moscow Mule,” we’re definitely going to opt for Wet N’ Wild’s Color Icon Glitter in Nudecomer. First off, this creamy highlighter/universal glitter product applies so effortlessly, and leaves your face glowing with a gorgeous nude hue. Also, it’s less than a dollar! We’re totally stocking up on this highlight (it also comes in 6 other shades you NEED to check out!).
