Comparison – high end and drug store Highlighters

Two highlighters with 2 very different prices…… Let’s review.


Model Co baked highlighter – free sample from Birchbox, in the shade Moonshine.
This is only a sample size, the actual size is worth £31.



Sleek highlighter palette purchased off Amazon for only £10, in the shade Solstice.


The Sleek highlighter palette I have used for well over a year, my favourite shade is Equinox the lovely gold shade.  It is cheap, very pigmented and gives a great colour pay off.
I received the Model Co highlighter from my Birch-box subscription in April.  It is a beautiful shade, more natural, not so shimmery.

I use a fan brush to apply both highlighters. A few brush strokes from the Sleek palette and I have a very pigmented highlight.   Downside to the Model co highlight is that, it takes a lot of dabbing the brush to get any pay off, i often find myself adding more and more to get close to the pay off I get with Sleek.

I like both products, however when I way up the price of them both I think Sleek is worth the money.  I use less product with sleek and it lasts longer, I am also given 4 shades in the palette.
Model Co is lovely but I wouldn’t spend £31 in the future when I have to use more product.  I always reach for my Sleek palette first.
