Liquid, cream, powder, cream-to-powder... the list goes on. Basically, highlighters come in every form these days, and they all have their pros and cons. When it comes to strobing on the go, however, stick highlighters can't be beat.
There are so many reasons to love them: You can apply them straight from the tube, no tools necessary. They're a cinch to blend and layer. And perhaps best of all, they're portable, fitting into your smallest makeup pouch (or heck, even your pocket), no question. Suffice it to say, strobing sticks are the only tool you need for effortlessly dewy-looking skin. Ahead, 16 of our favorites for your perusal.
As with her foundation line with its 40 different shades, Rihanna's Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer Skinsticks offer a lot of options for people across the color spectrum, with Starstruck looking lovely on paler skin tones, and Rum working amazingly on darker skin tones. Then, there are the more off-the-wall shades like the purple Unicorn, that make a major statement on everyone.
This strobing stick really packs a pigment punch -- which makes it a great option if you're going for the whole "cheekbones that are visible from outer space" vibe. It currently comes in two colors, Iridescent and Nude Glow, and it's quite the bargain.
We couldn't very well create a list of the best stick highlighters without including Benefit's Watt's Up now, could we? Everything about this highlighter -- from the adorable packaging to the golden cream-to-powder glow -- is basically perfection. There's a reason why this illuminator is a time-honored cult favorite.
