It makes your skin look dewy, not sparkly.

I want my skin to look like I'm standing in a perfectly lit room at all times: dewy, but not sweaty, and glowy but not sparkly. Yes, there's an app (or two) for that, but Ami Colé's Light-Catching Highlighter makes skin look lit-from-within both online and offline.

The Black-owned clean beauty brand's highlighter stick is a balm formula that glides on effortlessly for a natural looking glow. It's infused with nourishing ingredients like baobab seed oil to moisturize skin and keep it from oxidizing with wear.

Its formula is translucent so that it compliments every skin tone, especially those with melanin-rich skin, and has tiny flecks of gold glitter infused into it. Speaking of which, I'll admit, I was skeptical that it would be too sparkly, and Edward Cullen is never the look I'm going for.

However, I was quickly proven wrong once I swept the stick across my cheekbones and tapped it in with my fingertip for an extra seamless finish. I instantly looked like someone who has found their light, then snapped the perfect selfie — all day long. And mixed with a little bit of sebum and sweat (nature's highlighter), I continued to glow until the sun went down.

This stick has quickly become my go-to highlighter, and unsurprisingly, it's already earned our beauty team's seal of approval. But when a product is this good, it deserves multiple shoutouts.
