If you haven't noticed from this post, I like highlighters.  I really didn't think I needed anymore since I have a fair variety but the makeup goddess thought otherwise.  I entered Beauty Info Zone's giveaway of the It Cosmetics Hello Light Powder Illuminizer ($24), and thought nothing of it.  Then, I WON!!
