No, we’re not actually getting high…unless you live in Colorado or Washington, or have a job that does not involve random drug tests. But we ARE taking a look at a magical, multitasking highlighter pencil! The beauty market has been absolutely flooded with highlighting products – I myself have about a dozen in my makeup stand.
