ICYMI, radiant, glowing skin is still very much all the rage... which means that there are approximately 128,743 different highlighters on the market (just a rough estimate). But our current obsession? Highlighter palettes, which conveniently house multiple shades and finishes to offer an endless variety of ways to get glowing, from the super subtle to full-on dramatic. Ahead, we highlight -- see what we did there? -- 13 of our current favorite highlighter palettes.

Along with the standard bronze-y/champagne tones of most highlighter palettes, this set of six also includes a pearlescent blue and iridescent amethyst, both gorgeous dusted on lids. The powder formula is super versatile; apply dry for sheer shimmer, or wet to up the intensity. And these aren't just for your face -- try the bronze 'Lyra' shade mixed with a few drops of body oil to add the prettiest glow to legs or arms.
It's not like we needed any more reasons to #girlcrush on our favorite chicken wing eating supermodel, but this recent collaboration with Becca seals her place in our hearts. The limited edition palette (get it now), features four products hand-picked by Chrissy, including two of the brand's pressed highlighters -- one in an exclusive golden apricot hue -- plus a luminous blush and bronzer. If only using this highlighter palette would make us look like her.
When one of the most influential women in the beauty industry (she has 20 million Insta followers, NBD) comes out with a highlighter palette, you know it's going to be good, but even we were surprised by just how darn good it is. Not only are the four colors flawless with just the right amount of shimmer, but there are also simple, straightforward instructions as to how and where to use each one. Also nice: It comes in two shades, one for lighter complexions, one for medium to dark skin. There's also a limited-edition Summer Solstice palette that features playful, electric highlighter hues in violet, gold, pink and bronze.
Our inner minimalist loves that this highlighter palette keeps it super simple: A glimmery bronzer to sculpt and define, and a perfectly coordinated golden highlighter to create lit-from-within skin. The pigments in both are rolled into elastomer pearls... translation? Amazing bendability and completely uniform color, with no streaks in sight.
