I have mentioned this NYX Strobe Of Genius Illuminating Palette in numerous posts over the past few weeks and I have been using it non stop since it landed in the door. I am a girl who NEEDS a highlight and I feel my make up is not complete without it. You know those days when even your foundation can’t fix you? Well highlighter can!! If you find some highlights too much for everyday wear the NYX Strobe Of Genius Illuminating Palette is for you.
The Strobe Of Genius Illuminating Palette comes with seven highlight and strobing powders in one handy palette. The powders are soft, pigmented and easy to blend. They are not chunky or glittery which are the only things I avoid in any highlight. They double up as great eyeshadows, especially the darker shades and pop even more if applied with a wet brush.
My most used colours were the three larger pans. The middle shade being used on the eyes and other two used to give my face a glow. The effect from using these was subtle but striking with out being too in your face. I think this would be a perfect palette for anyone experimenting with highlighting for the first time or if you are looking for one that won’t look too harsh in daylight. There is a colour here to suit every skin tone and you can layer a few of the colours together depending on the effect you are trying to achieve.
As you can see, this palette gives a lovely glow from within. It enhances your skin without emphasising pores to light up your whole face and the best part is, you control how blinding it gets! Would I repurchase? I would buy the two larger pans separately but I can’t see my using the other pans enough to warrant them ever running out. The palette is very generous in size and will last you a very long time. So worth the 21 euro price tag. You can buy HERE.
