I love this palette! I can't think of more than one or two other brands currently selling highlighters in "unnatural" shades, and none have the range of shades that this single palette does, so I feel this product is unique and I could justify the splurge even though I have plenty of other excellent highlighters. I'm blown away by how beautiful the shades are (see them in person! Computer monitors and Snapchat photos don't do them justice!). The formula is buttery and applies very evenly. The shades with larger glitter kick up more product when swiped with a brush, but do not come off as powdery on the skin. A couple, but not all, of the shades have issues with fading slightly after about 5 hours, but the palette is travel-friendly so I just touch up real quick. (FYI: My skin leans dry, and I apply highlighter over the top of HD powder as the very last step in my routine.)
Somehow, surprisingly, these shades are wearable, even and especially the blue shades--I've received compliments from both men and women. I think because people are not used to seeing and don't expect unnatural shades on cheeks, and most people do not look too closely, the blue and green shades trick the eye, and honestly, the impression you come away with is it looks kinda natural.
Overall I'm delighted with this purchase; this is probably my favorite highlighter purchase I've ever made (and I have tried a fair cross-section of price points and brands).
