These Halloween Highlighters Are the Coolest Makeup Products for Fall
By Danielle Fontana , Associate Editor |
As if its internet-breaking rainbow highlighter wasn’t enough (it sold out in just a few days), the creative minds at Indie makeup brand Bitter Lace Beauty have rolled out another popular set of highlighters just in time for fall—a collection of spooky and sparkly Halloween-themed highlighters that will become available on its website come October.
While the collection includes five new shades, I have my eyes peeled on the Toothache shade, a white, orange and yellow pressed highlighter that goes on like a rose gold lover’s dream and is inspired by the season’s favorite treat: candy corn.
The Next Supreme, a uniquely gray highlighter with underlying purple and green shimmery flecks, is embossed with spiders and skulls to get you in the Halloween spirit first thing in the morning.
💀🕯Here she is pressed and dressed "The Next Supreme" is such a unique color! We couldn't even capture a good still photo, she kept sending my camera on a frenzy. If you missed out on Amuck last year, you will love TNS, they are somewhat cousins but not dupes! A gray silver base with a shift of mauvy purple and green. 😱🎃 #bitterlacebeauty#halloween #halloweenmakeup #rainbowhighlighter
Then there’s Hocus Pocus—a green, purple and orange compact (the most beautiful shade to look at) with spider webs etched into the pan—its hues may be reserved for the highlighter masters of the world (or those who love blush!).
Slay, a murder-inspired option (also referred to as a “killuminator” by the brand on its Instagram), has a white-gold base with a red blood spatter pattern in each product for a gorgeous rusty shade once applied.
SLAY🔪🔪🔪 You know we couldn't do halloween without a little gore! You guys are not going to believe this swatch, it's seriously drool worthy! Slay was ridiculously fun to make! We can't wait for you guys to see them in person! 😱🎃⚰👻🕸🔪🕯💀#bitterlacebeauty#halloween#halloweenmakeup #halloweenlook #slay#trickortreat #rainbowhighlighter
Last but not least is the brand’s first-ever liquid highlighter, I Put A Spell on You, which is a water-based pearl shade housed in a fall-ready skull bottle. "It dries down to be smudge-proof and can be used alone or even to intensify and change the powder shades of the collection," the brand explained on Instagram.
Once available in a few days, you can buy the highlighters in a bundle of five for $132 or individually for $28 (powder) or $30 (liquid). Founder and creator of each individual highlighter (yes, by hand) Jenna Georgescu tells Allure that these Halloween highlighters “are limited-edition, and once they are sold out, they will not be available again.” Make sure you don’t miss your shot—the Halloween-inspired collection will land on October 1 at 3 p.m. EST. Already sold? Us, too. If only these were given out when we were trick-or-treaters…
