Nothing beats a good makeup day, and a good makeup day is never made until you use a great highlighter. To get a glowing, cosmic look, most ladies and gents grab one of the Milk Makeup Holographic Sticks. This highlighter is a cult favorite for just about everyone: whether you like to cake your face or go for a minimal approach, you’ll fall in love with the shimmering pigments of these highlighters. This intergalactic highlighter comes in three different shades: blinding lavender “Supernova,” golden peach “Mars,” and the mesmerizing pink “Stardust,” and we’re obsessed with every single hue in this line.
But, one of the major setbacks of this highlighter is that it’s pretty pricey. Each highlighter is $30 each, so if you’re a fan of all three of the vibrant colors available, you’re looking at an expensive receipt. Luckily for everyone, we did some major Internet digging and found some of the top dupes for this iconic highlighting stick. That’s right, prepare to be hypnotized by these captivating colors, all at a fraction of the price of Milk Makeup’s Holographic Sticks.
