A kit to create your very own highlighting liquid inspired by the video of Katelyn Galloway (KikiG).  Please support Katelyn by subscribing to her channel here:

Please note:  We created this kit because we think Katelyn's recipe is simple and easy to follow with inexpensive and generally safe ingredients.  Nonetheless, Katelyn has very reasonably asked us to remind her fans that by mixing up your own cosmetics you are responsible for verifying that the ingredients are not irritating to your skin.  Also, we strongly encourage you to use the preservative which is included in the the kit at the percentages she mentions: 1 -3 drops per 1/2 ounce bottle of product.  Please don't use more thinking that it will make your product safer, or you will make a product which may irritate your skin.  Please don't skip it because it will make a product that is unstable over time.

  • All the tools and ingredients needed to make 5 different highlighting colors in 5 1/2 fl oz bottles, see FAQ for listing.   Here is the recipe that Katelyn provides:
    RECIPE:
    Mix approximately 1 tsp grape seed oil with 2 tsp cyclopentasiloxane and 2 tsp of your desired pigment in your silicone bowl and stir with whisk. Each sample bag contains about 3 teaspoons.  After testing the color for consistency, you may add all the rest of the sample bag.  It can take a little bit of back and forth to find the perfect consistency and, surprisingly, each color is a little different.  Also add 1-3 drops of preservative.  Add 3 mixing beads to your dropper bottle, and pour the mixture into the bottle.
  •  Included:

    - 5 flint glass ½ ounce dropper bottles

    - 6 grams each (about a tablespoon) of the five different colors mentioned in the video.

    - 2 fl oz Grapeseed oil

    - 2 fl oz Cyclopentasiloxane

    - 1/2 fl oz Cap-5 Preservative

    - Pack of 30 Economy Mixing Monster Beads

    - 1 Silicone Melter Bowl  (color will vary)

    - 1 Whisk

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Is there enough pigment in this kit to make the highlighter's really concentrated?

    We think so, but it's hard to say what will suit you.  If you are concerned about it, you can also order the components of the kit separately and instead of buying a sample size of powder (which is what we send in the kit), purchase the 1 ounce size.  Then for sure you will have plenty of color.

    In her video, Katelyn is showing about 2-3 teaspoons of powder per bottle.  The sample sizes we send you in the kit are about 3 teaspoons. 

  • Hello! I am wanting to make liquid highlighters, But I cannot seem to find the mixing beads? Do you not sell them besides the one's that come in the kit?

    We have 4 different sizes and we call them Monster Beads. Try that in our search box. Meantime, we will update their description so they are easier to find.

  • This might seem like a really dumb question but what are the purpose of the mixing beads?

    The product will separate over time, with the pigment falling to the bottom of the bottle and the clear liquid rising to the top.  It's normal and the mixing beads make it easy for you to shake the contents back together before applying.

  • Can I make these highlighters pressed? If I can, what are the steps to create pressed highlighters?

    We sell a simple kit for pressing powders, and there is a little video as well, so I suggest you take a look at it, click here.

    In addition to the ingredients in the kit, you can purchase various pigments such as are in the Hilighting Drops kit or your can purchase other colors that suit your project.
