Most Helpful Positive Review Blinding, yet soft!
I hope this doesn't come off as biased since I am SUCH a Too Faced fan, but I really do love the Born This Way line so much, despite me being an oily boy, my skin really enjoys everything about the line, so I did have high expectations for this highlighter palette, and to be honest, I am not disappointed at all! I'm more of a natural kind of person when it comes to makeup, but I do love a blinding highlighter at times, and this palette can give you a soft look to a beaming Goddess if you're into that, hehe. Glow is your traditional highlighter. It's soft when you touch it, and when swatched it's pretty blinding, but not super intense, which I like. It's like a champagne color. You can definitely build it up little by little without it looking chalky. Soft Focus really surprised me! I was scared that it would have too much little glitters and look very unflattering on my skin, but I am pleasantly impressed. It gives such a subtle glow to the skin, which is pretty. The glitters aren't noticeable at all! Definitely lasted well on my oily skin too. Now, I know Dazzle isn't everyone's cup of tea, but hear me out! There's definitely a way to get some use of it! Dazzle definitely is more glittery and when you touch it, it definitely feels gritty, but it does swatch fairly well. Reminds me of the ABH loose highlighters. I tried Dazzle on it's own, and it's pretty, don't get me wrong! But it's just too much building up. I would reccomend it more as a topper for Glow. Little bit of Dazzle, and trust me, you'll be blinding! The only cons I will say some people will have is the packaging. It's definitely a bit bulky, especially if you travel. I feel like it would take some space. And the last is the cost. She's definitely a bit pricey, especially for the amount you get for the highlighters. It's for sure nothing new. You can definitely find something similar. You don't NEED it. Overall, I really do enjoy this a lot, and will definitely get use out of it. Hopefully this helps!
Most Helpful Critical Review Expected so much more
This reminds me of the ambient light palettes from Hourglass that I never decided to take the plunge on and try, but I decided to give this a shot. I was a little disappointed... the soft focus shade and glow shades are beautiful but the dazzle.. YIKES. I expected so much more. Such a mediocre highlight. I'm 90% sure I'm going to return it and try the hourglass one. Sorry TF

This is one of my favorite products ever!
Grim from Houston
None of my brushes worked for this, even when moistened with setting spray. Maybe it's a bad press. But it's just a hard brick. I scraped some with a file, smooshed it up, and it takes a lot of it to get the highlight. Very very disappointed.
Grim from Houston
Fingers, different brushes, nothing seemed to work. Just a shiny brick. Lots of other brands with better payoff and lower price tags. Skip this one.
Jeanieg from Katy, TX
I absolutely love this trio. I have already hit pan on the soft focus...it sets my under eye beautifully without setting into the creases. I am so hoping the soft focus can be made into its own single product soon.
not enough color
Arely from Texas
I didn't like it. I used different brushed and my own fingers to see if application is better but I think it is the product that is defective so I returned it to the store.
Diamond from NY
This pallet gives my face the perfect glow not too much literally just enough. I use it when I'm done with everything if I want a little bit more glow or a little bit brighter under the eyes
Another highlighter win!!!
Mrs Jones from Kansas
I absolutely LOVE this highlighter trio and how there is something for most skin types. I ordered it in Deep and all 3 colors work beautifully! Even the Dazzle. I usually add it on top of Glow for an extra pop. Thank you so much for the attention to detail because sometime it's hard to find a highlighter for darker skin tones that won't either look a little ashy or they just don't have enough gold undertone. This is definitely a win, Makeup Artist approved by yours truly and I will definitely be purchasing again ❤
Lovely Colors, Lovely Results

I have it in light and I LOVE it. It really brightens my complexion and is just so pretty.

This is my favorite highlighter palette!
Very pretty highlight
GiveMeGorgeous from Phoenix, AZ
None of these three shades is blindingly highlight (if you are looking for a shock value shade). Personally, I do like a pretty powerful highlight but this is nice for brightening up the face. I got the lightest shade set and I think the colors are lovely.

Very versatile highlighting palette
Mae from Texas
I swatched these and found them very soft and finely milled, but when I bought mine, I found that I could barely get any payoff. I used my finger and rubbed off the top layer, a common technique with hard-pressed/baked products, and it works just as expected! It's also possible to scrape off the top layer, but I chose to rub it off so I didn't waste product. Again, this is fairly common of products with this type of pressing and not a big deal.
The centre colour reminds me so much of the Hourglass ambient lighting powders! I adore those powders and am glad to have this cheaper option. I lightly apply it to the apples of my cheeks, temples, and chin, and it gives me a beautiful glowy, luminous complexion. I use the two shades on the edges for a highlight and really enjoy them. I don't find them chunky or glittery, but they can be built up to an intense highlight. This is an extremely versatile palette, and the only highlighting palette I've come across where all the shades work for my skin tone.
Perfect Natural Glow
Emily from Michigain
I used this once and I had this incredible natural glow. They really nice thing about this palette is that it is very buildable, you can have a really subtle glow, or if u want that blinding highlight you can totally get it!
Very natural look

Had to use quite a bit to get desired results. Prefer other brands

Kathie from Az
This is an everyday powder for me. I love the highlighter and is great when I'm having to eat a mask everyday.
Would not buy ever again
LS from Green Bay WI
100% agree with the other reviews that said that no brush worked with this palette. Super disappointed.
no brush works
Marie from mount sinai
I bought two brushes and nothing picks up the color to even show a highlight. wasted money
waste of money.
purple hair girl from nj
there are so many other products out there that can accomplish the same things. It's hard to build up and I literally have run the pallet on my face to see anything. save your $$
Dazzle not highly pigmented
Jada from Seattle,WA
I wish the Dazzle color is highly pigmented. I use my finger tips to grab a good amount before place it on my cheeks.
Glow color is a great bronzer! Using a brush is no problem.
Soft Touch is a great color for finishing touches or to tone down the bronzer a little.
I will keep the item! I just wish the Dazzle was highly pigmented.
Off Target from Puyallup wa
Hard to build up...no brush works well to apply.
