    I use the white as an undereye set and the medium two to set my face. (This hourglass powders) would never reccomend to use as a cheekbone highlight.

    Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Illuminating Palette:

    I own and love all of my elf palettes but this one leaves me a bit confused. I realize that the shimmer is subtle but I can't see it at all when applied. I've tried using brushes, sponges and my fingers but only the lightest shade has any noticeable shimmer to it. I decided to try using a wet eyeshadow brush and all of the shades became much more shimmery and were very pretty. I used my dewy setting spray but I think plain water would do just as well. I like this product but I knocked off 2 stars because of the difficulty in application. If this palette needs to be applied wet for any color/shimmer payoff, there should be instructions on the package stating this. I would only recommend this product if you don't mind using a wet brush which blends very differently from dry powder application.

    I got this thinking it would be like their baked dome-shaped ones(I highly recommend), but it wasn't. It's very chalky. I only use them on my eyes now. 2 stars forhow cheap it is, but get the smaller one.

      I use this awesome kit in conjunction with the Nyx contour kit. The colors are nicely pigmented, go on smoothly and do not settle in fine lines or cake. I can't believe this kit sells for only $6.00. It is as good as the Anastasia contour kit. Love it!

          I've wanted the Anastasia or Hourglass highlighting palettes for a while, but there's no way I will pay that much money for it. I was so excited when I found this palette. I've never considered buying ELF palettes before but for the price I couldn't help but try it out. It's so beautiful and versatile, I use it for shadow as well as over the face. The colors give a beautiful, natural glow. They're very soft and easy to blend without looking chalky. I'm so glad I tried this! It's my new love, and easy to travel with, too.

          Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Illuminating Palette:

          It DOES have a lot of fallout/kickback in the pans, but it goes on GREAT and stays all day. You can mix colors and build up the intensity, but the bottom 2 shades are less bright and highlight-y, more like blush toppers almost.

          Pros

            Cons

            • doesn't have any shine
            • looks powdery on the skin

            Best Uses

            • Oily Skin

            Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Illuminating Palette:

            I always used this product with a fan brush and it didn't apply very well so I switched to a different brush, and it still was not very easy to apply. It takes a long time to get any shine at all and when you do, you have this powdery cast on your cheekbone.

              Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Illuminating Palette:

              I love this palette! It has very buildable pigmentation so you can easily turn a daytime look into a night look. The bottom shades are perfect for bronzing and the highlight shades can be built up from subtle glow to POPPIN.
