Guiltless Gastos: Which Highlighter Stick Is The Most Sulit?

Let's compare and discuss!

Here at Cosmo.ph, we love finding out which products are worth our hard-earned money. For today's installment of Guiltless Gastos (We've got a bunch already up, BTW.), we compared the prices, weight, and ~glow factor~ of highlighter sticks. 

Strobe sticks are super easy to use: You just swipe them on your cheekbones and blend the product with your fingertips. Done and done. The results are even better—their creamy formulas melt on the skin well, so the glow looks natural.

If you're not sure which highlighter stick is the best buy, check our Guiltless Gastos guide below.
