I’ve been using this So Susan Highlighter Crayon along side 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 hoomans like me.


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.



INGREDIENTS / INGRÉDIENTS : ethylhexyl palmitate, ceresin, beeswax (cera alba), talc, polybutene,  microcrystalline wax (cera microcristallina), salvia hispanica (organic chia) seed extract, hydrolyzed silk, phenoxyethanol [+/- (may contain/peut contenir) mica, titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), D&C red no. 7 calcium lake (CI 45410), D&C red no. 7 ca lake (CI 15850:1)]

As well as being cruelty free, there’s other benefits of this highlighter, including:

• No Mineral Oils
• No Phthalates
• No Parabens
• With Organic Chia Seed extract to help moisturize skin
• With Silk Peptide to promote suppleness
• Fragrance Free
• Hypoallegenic
• Non-comedogenic


As you can tell, I’m a fan of both the highlighters and think they compliment 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.

  4. The best highlighter I’ve tried to date is one called High Lights which I bought off amazon – it is definitely a copy of the similarly named Benefit product but it’s actually really nice and a fraction of the price. I am considering buying another bottle since I went to look it up to check what it was called!

    Paula –

  5. It looks lovely on you! I haven’t heard of the brand before but I like the crayon idea – makes it easy to apply 🙂

  6. I never tried highlighter crayons before but this sounds like a really good one! I wanted to try Collection highlighter but it’s so hard to find here in Canada.
