    Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius:

    Awesome palette! I bought this because they were having a deal when you purchased 2 NYX products and i'm so glad that I took the chance with this highlighter palette! There is every color/shimmer for every occasion. Depending on what i'm doing and how i'm feeling I have all my highlighters in one! I get compliments often and when i'm with friends they usually use mine instead of their high end highlighters they usually use!

            The name strobe of genius is spot on. This Pallete has different colors that you can blend and look incredible on all skin tones.

            The result is so amazing I don't even get offended when my toddler decided to play in it. Just gave my sweet girl an angelic glow.

                Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius:

                I bought this a while ago when I was first getting really into products as a way to "ease in" without putting in a lot of money right away.
                I was immediately impressed with the color variation, pigment, and blend-ability.
                Since then I kind of put it on the back burner and have tried highlighters from just about everyone, Laura Gellar, Tarte, Kat Von D and more. I love all those products as well, but I've rediscovered this again and I don't know if I'll go back. The pigment and payoff is absolutely insane and lasts forever, even through my sweaty summer days.
                Color can be used thin, almost like a veil for a subtle natural look or layered and built up for that blinding, see-it-from-Mars highlight look.
                It also somehow doesn't seem to magnify texture, which I LOVE, as I have chicken pox scars right where I usually place highlight :\

                Get it. Love it. Repurchase it. #nyxforever

                This is the one product I need in my makeup routine, I have to use it even if I'm running late! My one drawback is that I find that a couple colors are a bit sheer and need to be applied about 4-5 times in order to be visible, so I do have to take time to build it up. But it's definitely worth it because you get 7 shades for nearly $20 :)

                  I use an ELF fluffy highlighting brush to add this to my face. People always ask me what kind of highlighter I use and assume its something expensive. I love that the palette has different shades for me to try. Stays on all day, even with my oily skin. Sometimes I wear it as the only makeup on my face. I will not leave home without it this summer.
