As someone whose job requires testing makeup and giving recommendations I know a great product when I see one. The highlights in this pallete are better than Becca, Maybelline, Too Faced, Makeup Revolution, and Jeffre Star cosmetics combined. You could pay $40 from another brand and still not get the same quality of product as these. THEY ARE BLINDING. I usually layer up highlighter to get a ultra intense finish but with these mu soul is satisfied in one go. The blushes put M.A.C and Tarte to SHAME. They blend like a dream and provide a sophisticated and summer time look that brings cheeks to life. All the shades are pigmented enough to use as eyeshadows too.
