I’ve been using this So Susan Highlighter Crayon alongside it’s buddy, the So Susan Highlighter Pencil, as part of my daily makeup routine.
Between the both of them, they give my complexion a bit of extra boost – leaving me looking bright and giving me a bit of a glow. Even better – it only takes a minute to apply. Perfect for lazy humans like me.
About highlighter crayons
Makeup highlighter crayons are a type of cosmetic makeup product designed to achieve a highlighted and luminous look on the skin. They typically feature a creamy or balmy texture that contains light-reflecting pigments or pearls, creating a radiant finish when applied to the skin.
These crayons are applied to specific areas of the face—such as cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of the nose—to add a touch of shimmer and dimension, resulting in a natural and subtle glow. The crayon format allows for precise application, often used with finger blending or makeup brushes. They come in various shades to suit different skin tones and offer an alternative to more intense powder or liquid highlighters.

So Susan Highlighter Crayon
So first of all, you might be wondering why I need two highlighters. I use them in different ways, that’s why! The first one I blogged about is a pencil which I use down my nose and cupids bow.
This crayon stick is a much smoother product and perfect for highlighting under the brows, chin and forehead. I also use it under my eyes to get rid of those bags.
You can also use it down your nose, as I did with the pencil version, but I find the pencil works better for this.

So Susan Highlighter Crayon Review
As you can tell, I’m a fan of both the highlighters and think they complement each other well. If you were to just buy one of them, I’d recommend this crayon over the pencil though, as the pencil might be too hard for areas such as under the eyes, chin and forehead.
I’ve not had much experience with highlighter crayons and pens before – the ones I’ve used in the past have been in liquid form, such as Benefits High Beam and the Me Me Me Beat The Blues highlighter, but these is my favourite to date for sure.
