If you don't know about Beauty Bakerie then I don't know what rock you've been sitting under for the last few years. Started by Cashmere Nicole, Beauty Bakerie has consistently delivered quality products like its Lip Whips and Coffee & Cocoa Bronzer Palette. The Milk & Honey Palette is no different, and that's exactly why it won our 2019 and 2020 Best of Beauty Award in the highlighter palette category.

The Milk & Honey Palette features four shades: Oh Honey (pale pink), Queen Bee'ing (bronze), Spoiler Alert (champagne with pink shimmer), and Bee Sweet (gold). When I tell you these colors are pigmented, I really mean they are pig-men-ted. I was shocked at how much product transferred to my skin in a single swipe. This highlighter isn't for the faint of heart, so if you don't like shining bright like a diamond, use a lighter hand to dispense the product. However, if you're like me and love looking like a glazed Honey Bun, then don't hesitate, grab that brush, and swipe it on.

I like repurposing my products for everything. (An eye shadow palette can become a highlighter or blush if need be; that foundation stick becomes a contour; my concealer becomes eye shadow primer, etc.) And this palette is no exception. Yes, it's a highlighter palette, but it also looks great as lid shade, in your eye's inner corner, on your brow bone, or even mixed with your favorite blush or bronzer to give it a little more shimmer. You can also mix the shades together to make for interesting combos. Bee Sweet and Queen Bee'ing give me a natural glow on those days when I don't really want to wear a lot of makeup. In just one (or two) swipes, I get that natural-looking, dewy glow.

The palette comes with a lot of product, so expect it to last you for a while. Also, for $38, this is a great deal; you're getting four different highlighters, which really means you're paying less than $10 for each one. We love a bargain.
