      Just picked this up today & couldn't wait to get home to try it! I've been meaning to buy this but am just now getting around to it but MAN LET ME TELL YOU... this is such a beautiful highlighter! I have red hair & I'm fair skinned w/ yellow undertones & I purchased the pearl palette. I am also someone who keeps my makeup to a nice minimal/enhancing look & doesn't go too crazy so this "glow from within" is perfect for me. I also have texture on my skin/oily skin & this looks soooo good on it. Casey knew what she was doing & I will be using this everyday from now on!!!

              Comments about Smashbox Spotlight Palette:

              The packaging is ugly and it's not pigmented at all. It takes a few times to get on your skin. The lightest shade looks like chalk the gold and pink colors are nice but not worth it.

              Pretty and great for everyday use but needs better packaging

              By Sarah

              from Cicero, IL

              Comments about Smashbox Spotlight Palette:

              It's very powdery and there's a lot of fallout. The colors are very close together in the palette so they get mixed with all the fallout after you dip your brush in, but the colors are very pretty and look nice on my fair skin tone! It adds some dimension to my face without looking too obvious. Overall I'd say the packaging needs to be better (the pans more spaced out in the palette, and the top of my palette was super sticky when I took it out of the box, but eventually wore off) but the colors look great and it's good for everyday use.

              This product did so much for the tone and look of my skin. I'm still new to highlighting and this one was so easy to use and looks flawless. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to to better highlight their face! It isn't extremely glittery or shiny color. Its a perfect combo of each!

                I was sold this as a bronzer and it was not exactly what I was looking for. It was much to golden for my fair skin tone and much to bright and glitzy to use as a bronzer. This was much more on a highlighter side. Beautiful color and easy to use and work with. Just very golden and shiny
