Highlighters are the finishing touch to any makeup look, and BECCA Cosmetics reigns supreme with their Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formulation.
The texture is soft and silky while the pigmentation and high shine reflection is second to none, BUT the ingredients are less than desirable.
Check out this cleaner option from Lily Lolo!
Lily Lolo Champagne Illuminator is an ultra-soft light reflective powder that can be applied on the top of your cheekbones, shoulders and décolletage. It creates high impact highlights to create the perfect look.

There are many non-toxic loose powder highlighters on the market, Silk Naturals makes my favorite, but pressed is my preferred formulation. If you guys have any other pressed highlighters with non-toxic ingredients that you think I should check out, please leave them in the comments!
