14. Fenty Beauty Trophy Wife Highlighter:
This is possibly the most sparkling highlighter in the market – meaning it is choke full of micro glitter.

The glitter is very very fine but each of those catch the light and each and every one of those twinkle. I cannot emphasize enough that the pictures do not do it justice!!
