Green Highlighter Exists & It Is Magnificent

by Rachel Nussbaum

Get ready to feel some emotions about Lorac's new highlighter. Because forget your nudes, champagnes, rose-golds, and holographic whites — this green highlighter will have you questioning everything you thought you knew.

Coming at us live from Lorac's spring collection (really, it's now available on Ulta), this mint green highlighter is pioneering new definitions of the word. The I Love Brunch Light Source Illuminating Highlighter definitely highlights, but in the new meaning of the word, where "highlight" is less about a natural, well-lit glow, and more about centering attention exactly where you want it. With highlighters veering ever unnatural, it's time to officially broaden the concept.

According to the product's Ulta description, "Instantly bring luminosity and life to your face with Lorac's limited edition Los Angeles Light Source Illuminating Highlighter...Whether you are already a star or one in the making, this highlighter is packed with light diffusing, soft focus pigments for a silky smooth, luminous glow. There's no rolling out of bed here; so dress to impress, valet the car, and become your own source of light with Lorac."

Lorac I Love Brunch Light Source Illuminating Highlighter in Limelight, $23,

Exactly; The brand is on the money (a green pun) with their own-light source idea. The collection was inspired by brunch, and despite the tenuous connection between brunch and mint green highlighter (the color of the bill?), it's a gorgeous outcome. Joined by pastel pink and peach blushes, it's all very Easter brunch, but I respect that they separated church and the makeup-state.

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette, $32,

As for how it will play on skin, Green Emerald from Kat Von D's Alchemist palette looks like it'll be Limelight's closest relative. Picture that, but with a milkier, mintier skew.

Makeup Geek Highlighter in Electrify, $20,

While Makeup Geek's Electrify is a limier contender. Send in swatchers, this green isn't one to miss. And with the brand utterly breaking from highlighter's outdated description, it's looking like they've got a finger on the future.
