Huda Beauty Summer Solstice 3D Highlighter Palette ($45.00 for 1.10 oz.) includes a cream highlighter and three powder highlighters. The cream formula is described as a “pearlescent creamy formula” that will create a “flawless, lit-from-within canvas” and is ideal for layering with powders, though it can also be used “on its own for [a] dewy and natural” effect. The powder highlighters can be used alone or together and are merely described as “light-catching.

I think the brand altered the cream highlighter formula compared to the original two that launched earlier this year, as the shade included in this palette was creamier and thinner, not nearly as dense or as difficult to blend out. The powder highlighters remained as a moderately dense formula with moderate to intense shine. The three powder highlighters were buildable in coverage as two shades were semi-opaque (which I suspect some will prefer).

Huda Beauty Saint-Tropez Cream Highlight

Huda Beauty Saint-Tropez Cream Highlight

Saint-Tropez

Saint-Tropez is a brighter, light-medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had almost opaque coverage, which was forgiving enough that it couild be sheered out quite a bit if desired. The consistency was creamier, lightly tacky, and dried down for the most part. I was able to blend it over bare skin or over foundation without it lifting my base away, which was an issue I had with previous palettes. The highlighter had a noticeable sheen on my skin but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It lasted well for six and a half hours on me.

Malibu

Malibu is a medium, golden copper with warm, brown undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. The consistency was slightly powdery, though it was still a denser formula overall. The coverage was more semi-opaque in a single layer, but I found it buildable and easy to blend out on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Huda Beauty Copacabana Powder Highlight

Copacabana

Copacabana is a soft pink with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It added subtle color and sheen to my skin, and it was one of the less metallic shades I’ve come across from the brand’s powder highlighters, which may or may not be your cup of tea. The texture was soft, blendable, and dense without being stiff or difficult to work with. On me, the highlighter lasted for eight hours.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, Zinc Stearate, Diisostearyl Malate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Polybutene, Isopropyl Isostearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Hexylene Glycol, Tocopherol, Lecithin, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Oleate, Citric Acid, May contain (+/-): CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 15850 (Red 7 Lake), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides).

Huda Beauty Mykonos Powder Highlight

Huda Beauty Mykonos Powder Highlight

Mykonos

Mykonos is a bright, medium-dark magenta purple with subtle, cool blue undertones and an iridescent shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was somewhat buildable, paired with a moderately dense texture that took a heavier hand to get enough color to dislodge from the surface and get onto my brush. The finish was metallic and did emphasize my skin’s natural texture just slightly. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, Zinc Stearate, Diisostearyl Malate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Polybutene, Isopropyl Isostearate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Tin Oxide, Hexylene Glycol, Tocopherol, Lecithin, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Oleate, Citric Acid, May contain (+/-): CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 15850 (Red 7 Lake), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides).
