    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

        Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius:

        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 :)

          Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius:

          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.
