                most don't show up :/

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Strobe of Genius:

                I want to love this palette so badly but most of the highlights don't show up like I had hoped. Most are ok if you want subtle & a couple can look powdery & emphasize lines (I'm 30 & apparently I smile too much haha or need more rest & h2o). I've gotten a decent highlight using a rosewater mist, dupe for fix +, but not worth the hassle most days.

                Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Strobe of Genius:

                these colors are so amazing, and SO buttery smooth, they feel like velvet. LOVE that there are an array of shades for every skin tone. I have pale skin, but they almost all seem to work. I will say I honestly thought they'd be a bit bigger, as the whole palette in general, but the quality is so good it doesn't even bother me and I know these will last me a while. would purchase again!

                    So I don't use this all that often, but this product is pretty cool. It's just a bit more sparkle than I usually use :p however, I bet the darker colors could work as a bronzer on fair people like me lol
