                This product is just OK. It has a lot of fall-out and not a really good color payoff. It's OK for the price, but I like higher-end ones better

                  This is the best highlighter I have ever tried. The colors are very pigmented. I see a lot of people saying you can't use the purple shade but I disagree. The purple shade with this palette inspired me to get the ABH moonchild palette but I think this highlight from NYX is much better and more affordable. Definitely would recommend.

                        Hands down best highlighting palette ever created for the drugstore. This formula is so comparable to the glow kits its ridiculous. It is a higher price for drugstore but it is so worth it. I think all the colors are amazing but I have a medium skin tone so most highlights work if they're not too dark. Overall gorgeous and I love the range of colors, even the purple. I don't like natural sheens or shimmer as highlight I need the pigment and staying power that this palette provides. Well done nyx!

                        I was very disappointed in this product. I was extremely excited to buy a highlight palette with so many color options but they were not very pigmented and appeared to be more of a sparkle bomb on my face rather than a pretty natural highlight. They did not apply well and don't last throughout the day. Extremely disappointed in this product.
