What I Want in a Highlighter
I want my highlighter to give me the lit-from-within ethereal pearlescent glowy skin that I crave. Yes, I want to look otherworldly and vaguely threatening. I want my dry skin to look glowy and gorgeous.
What I Don’t Want in a Highlighter
I do not want chunky glitter in my highlighter that emphasizes any texture on my cheeks. I have great skin, but I still feel like glittery highlighters make my cheeks look strange, not sexy.

Best Gothic Highlighters Swatches
I bought Black Moon Cosmetics Moonlighter in Catshark first, then realized I was all about this formula, so bought several more shades. I should have just bought the bundle and saved, because I’ve bought every other color except for Dragonfish.

Black Moon Cosmetics Moonlighters Review
L to R – Centipede, Shroom, Glow Worm, Jellyfish, Squid, Catshark
- Catshark – an iridescent lilac highlighter
- Squid – a glorious diamond white highlighter
- Jellyfish – an iridescent jellyfish blue highlighter
- Glow Worm – an iridescent lime green highlighter
- Shroom – a pink and light gold iridescent highlighter with pink reflects throughout
- Centipede – a stunning pale banana yellow highlighter
As I mentioned above, Black Moon Catshark is my favorite moonlighter and I’ve hit pan on it. It’s my daily wear highlighter because I’m purple obsessed. Jellyfish is an awesome otherworldly blue. Squid and Centipede are great for everyday ‘normal’ highlighter shades on all skintones. Glow Worm is perfect for when I want to channel my Green Goddess side. Shroom is a slightly different formula and on the chunky side. I typically use Shroom as a highlighting blush.
Which highlighter would you hit pan on first? What’s your current favorite highlighter? What’s your pick for the best gothic highlighters?
