Liquid Illuminator X Powder Illuminator
The liquid highlighter is the easiest to spread due to its texture, which further enhances the finish of the makeup. It also tends to be more visible and sometimes more metallic in effect.
The powder highlighter has more versions (with glitter, discreet or not, metallic), but its fixation depends on other products, such as foundation and concealer. It is more suitable for those with oily skin, while the liquid illuminator adheres better to drier skin.
