      Some are pigmented. Some are not. The lavender is more of a silver on the cheeks & swatched. It's a good palette for beginners.

        Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Strobe of Genius:

        Oh NYX, how you slay me with your highlight game! The strobe of Genius Highlight Palette is just that; Genius. The texture is creamy and luxurious, reminding me of much more expensive brands. It sits well on my foundation and is easy to build up so I can go "au naturale" to "I can see that glow from space" without a ton of hassle. What I really love about this palette is the color selection! It has all the normal champagne and rose golds but then you get a beautiful yellow gold, lavender, and a stunning pearl, giving you the ability to try something fun and trendy without buying a single. This palette is extremely versatile and is a good purchase for beginners and pros alike in my opinion. ONLY DRAWBACK: When my cheeks are really dry and a little textured I fell like these highlights bring out the texture more so than some of my other highlighters, but as long as I moisturize before I prime I tend to be good. Hope this is helpful!

          I wear this product everyday! It's the best drugstore highlighter one can ever spend their money on. I highly recommend the NYX Strobe of Genius!! It isn't glittery or chunky. The formula is smooth and they have overall great pigmentation in my opinion. The product really lasts on my skin throughout the day and I have normal to dry skin. If you love highlighters and want something that's not too expensive, then settle on this product because your'e getting a total of 7 highlighters for such a reasonable price.

            I saw this pallette by the checkout line (I'm always sucked in hehe) and I knwe i had to have it. I love NYX but this was my first time seeing the pallette so I had to give it a try. TOTALLY WORTH IT. This highlight is flawless, you can build you coverage, pigmentation is amazing, and you can blend different shades for your mood or skin tone. As me and my friend would say, "this highlight is legendary"

                I wasn't sure if I was the biggest fan of shimmer and highlights, but I bought this and LOVE it. The different colors allow you to have a more subtle highlight, or a more intense highlight, depending on which look you're going for.
