My favourite palette!

I was in dire need of a new highlighting palette, but was having trouble finding one that seemed that it would actually show up on my skin, last me a long time, and not look like I dipped my face in a plate of glitter. I encountered this while I was shopping and fell in love with it! I purchased it right away. For starters, all six shades show up and work wonderfully on my skin. They don't ever look caked on, streaky, or too unnatural. They give my a nice, natural shine that really pulls my look together. This is also an INCREDIBLE value. I would think that this would be marketed for around $55 instead of $35! I'm so happy that this palette exists, and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for some natural-looking yet very pigmented highlighters.

I was super exited. I haven't really seen it much around but it looked pretty good. So I got it and the glitter was very chunky and it clung to dry patches. I don't think it was worth the money at all. It is horrible and I would not recommend. Don't trust good reviews. This product also rubbed off and have poor pigmentation. The (chunky) glitter was all down my face by the end of the day.

worth your money

Don't believe the bad reviews, because of them I was skeptical of buying this product but I decided to try it anyways and wow was it worth it. If it sticks to dry patches that means you need more moisture on your skin before you start your makeup. There's no large chunks of glitter because it's more on the creamy side than the powder side. If it's sliding down your face than you need to set it in place with a setting spray. This product is AMAZING and very pigmented. It's buildable and doesn't move on my face or emphasize any dry patches. I bring it with me everywhere because it has such a variety of colors for everyday uses. I'll be repurchasing this as soon as I hit pan on one of my colors!!

High quality palette

This product is an amazing palette. Extremely high quality, very blendable, and very pigmented. This contains a nice range of colors for everyone. Warm and cool tones. Great value. Almost on par with Becca. My more detailed review video is below.

I have very fair skin so most highlighters blend in with me, but this one doesn't! It shows up super shimmery and gorgeous. Especially the white! The medium shades I haven't found a use for yet, but will probably use them for eyeshadow. The darker pink is the least pigmented in my opinion, but still beautiful. I would recommend this & Kay von D's highlight palette if you're fair skinned & looking for a highlighting kit!

What’s the best highlighter for someone that doesn’t wear it often?

Love this one! Great formula and you get 6 colors. I’ve been using it for forever and even on the colors I use the most I still haven’t hit pan
