This is my favorite go-to blush/highlighter/bronzer. I've purchased 3 of the California Sunrise over the past two years. It shouldn't have been necessary to replace them as often, but the plastic case at the back where it opens & closes broke off in every one. Long before the product was gone. I suspect one would last 2 years if it were made better. No, I don't drop it or even travel with it unless it's in my make-up case and well protected. I've never had a pallet case break, and I've used the high end expensive ones as well as the drug store brands. I've tried to replace the last one for the past couple of months, but it's always out of stock in the store. I asked today if it was discontinued, one of the managers checked and said "yes, I'm sorry, it has. It isn't even available online any more." I came home and looked for myself - sure enough it's not only available, but on sale! I've just ordered 2 more (also trying the Tahitian this time) and pray the case lasts longer. At least long enough to use up 1/2 of the product!! If it weren't so perfect, I'd have given up after the first one.
The colors of this palette are beautiful, however, the bronzer and blush need much less shimmer, as this intense highlight in the places where blush and bronzer go can make you look bad and oily. I like to apply blush to the outsides and apples of my cheeks but this blush constricts me to using it closer to the outside due to the shine.

Love the colors but every single time ive bought it it has fallen apart and made a huge mess and I had to throw it away. Wont be buying again.

I loved wearing this for about 2 weeks but my daughter borrowed it and broke it. I've continued using it but now it's falling and getting very messy. I've had one before for a few months and it broke as well.

I have been using this product for 3 plus years and was so happy to stumble upon it. I have purchased so many expensive palettes throughout my life looking for the perfect one for my skintone and the glowiness I wanted to achieve. This product is everything and at an amazing price point!
I purchased two palettes- the Santorini Sun and the California palette. I use them almost everyday in the summer and get so many complements. They look natural with the perfect amount of glow. I run my brush around all three and apply with a bit extra glow at the highest point of my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose and the jawline. I take my finger and use the highlighter on my brown bone in place of shadow. I have even put a dab of the highlighter under my eye, right in the center.
I have not had any trouble with the cases nor has any of my palettes made a mess of my bathroom as a few other commentors have stated. I am on my second set of palettes and still no problems. I hope Ulta never discontinues these!

I love this product and have been using it for about 3 years. I just wish they would make the case better. The hinge always, always breaks off long before you're done w/the product.

I used this once and returned it. It made a total mess of my bathroom. Unnecessary and unacceptable.

This is amazing quality for the price and beautiful color tones. I am debating buying all three different shades! Love. Love. Love.

I lived the color Tahitian. It is no longer available. Santorini is a great substitute. The bronzers are almost identical. The blush in Santorini is a little bit lighter. The blush in Santorini is a single color-not marbled like Tahitian. A little extra highlighter solves that problem. These 3 in 1 pallets are the best. Beautiful colors that look great and don't cost a lot.
AKK from Michigan
I never write reviews but this stuff is amazing. I just take all 3 colors on an angled contour brush and pop some on my cheeks and it looks amazing. Such a nice glow, pigmented and stays on. I dont ever wear contour, but I like blush and this is the perfect in between. I also have acne scars on my cheeks and this does well.
Lala from South Fla
Wow! This is natural glow (California shade) thinking of buying backups to keep in my purse and gifting.

lots of pigment in this palette. Looks great and really shiny!
Elizabeth from Tennessee
I own these in each color story. Three in all and let me say this, I absolutely love each one! So versatile and such good quality. I'm not saying it is a dupe, but it compares well to Hourglass! Much more affordable. My favorite are the bronzer, because they blend so well and look natural, not orange. Can't go wrong with these, Ulta!
Kaitlyn from Tulsa Ok
I have fair skin and got the St. Tropez sky. This is such a beautiful all over bronzer and I also like the blush. The highlighter is a little glittery but when all used together, it just gives a nice glow!
Makeup lady from Georgia
This is the best way to show a little glow on my face. It sets light on my face, washes off well and doesn't clog my pores. The tricolors are great for hitting the high and lows of my contours. I buy it over and over again. Prefect for the southern states temperatures.
Perfect for everyday! I love having all the face steps easily accessible in one spot! Comparable to a high end product!!
Shelby from Ohio
Loovvveeee this. It is HUGE. This is perfect for spring/summer

This three in one face trio palette is one of the most beautiful products that Ulta offers under their Brand name. It rivals high end brands such as It Cosmetics and Laura Gellar's versions of the baked trio face palette. The highlighter is so buttery and gives a beautiful glow with no glitter and it's very smooth. The blush gives a light glow with a nice pigmented color pay off. The bronzer is so so pretty also giving a light glow and I love the under tone. I purchased the shade Californian Sunlight and it's perfect for my light medium neutral skin tone. I have purchased it as gifts for my family and friends and they love it as well. It's a must have for the make up lover.

I love this pallet and would love to buy it again but when I order it online it arrives crushed and all powder. I can't find it in any of the stores around me. They are always out of stock. I've been told to come in on Mondays or Tuesdays when they receive their shipments. I've gone several times to no avail.
Leah from Ironton, Ohio
I love the product and will buy it again. However when these palettes arrived at my house by mail, they were both crushed. I had to take them both back your store and exchange them.
Anna D. from Halifax, CA
I bought this palette in "California sun". At first I thought the blush would be all sparkle and no pigment, but I was proved wrong! The blush shows up nicely on the skin and is neither overpowering or under powering. The highlighter is great and provides a nice glow. The bronzer is lovely as well and doesn't show up on the skin as being sparkly, which is always a bonus. Normally I prefer my blush and bronzer to be matte but I don't mind it with this palette! The palette is a little large though, but with three great products at an amazing price, this can't be beat!

i loved this trio. The blush and bronzer blended well. The highlight was great too. did not show texture. these products are very satiny on the skin, thats why blending is so good. i got the shade..santorini sun. i have light skin it worked good.

This product is beautiful and gives such a sun kissed glow for all times of the year.
Karen from Anchorage, Ak
It's a dupe to a high end brand and just as good!
Heather from LA from Los Angeles
I ordered the lightest shade, California Sunlight, which is beautiful on my light/medium skin tone. The bronzer gives a nice hint of tan, the blush is a really pretty pink, and the highlight is a nice champagne color. Unfortunately for me the whole pan is sparkly/shimmery. On a younger person this would probably just look like a beautiful glow, but on my 52 year old skin it magnified fine lines and just looks a bit much. I prefer a more natural finish.
Rosco from Florida
i got the darkest one in st. tropez. the bronzer is wonderful, goes on smooth and blends easy! buildable as well, or you can simply tap it once with your brush to give a soft, bronzy look. the blush is very pretty on my skin tone. however, i find the highlighter gives an overcast so i'll use it as a brow highlight and eyeshadow. it's pretty otherwise, and has a pretty peach/gold shift. better than the Nabla bronzer which i am returning!
