Friends, we are living in the golden age of iridescent highlighters. They come in every texture imaginable — jellies, gel creams, liquid drops — and every finish and color of the rainbow too. There's actually a whole renaissance of iridescent beauty products, from holographic lipsticks all the way to color-shifting face masks.

When it comes to maximum glow factor, there's really no beating highlighters — they're kind of the OG, after all. And there are so many great ones to choose from right now, whether you favor high-drama chunk glitter faves like Cover FX's Glitter Drops or soft, fairy-like products such as the new Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter formula. No matter what your personal proclivities are, consider this your one-stop shop. Read on for the best highlighters for getting your iridescent glow on.

Cover FX Glitter Drops in Lunar, $44
When it comes to next-level shimmer, you can't get much sparklier than Cover FX's new multi-use formula. Like the cult favorite Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops, it brings the drama in a major way — except this time with chunky glitter that somehow also manages to be sophisticated and classy. All three available shades are beautiful but it's the iridescent Lunar that takes the cake in our book.
