    Love this post! I have thought about picking up the ELF for a long time. How does it compare to Benefit's?

  2. 1.7.14

    I really like Milani!

    Should include Wet n Wild Reserve Your Cabana and Hard Candy's Tiki Bronzer! They both have glowing reviews and they're drugstore.

    @Arielle, I haven't tried the Benefit so I don't know. I do really like the ELF though!

    @Jas, I was trying to do more highlighters than bronzers, things with just a hint of shimmer. I thought those were darker?

    Reserve Your Cabanna is a highlighter on me!
