My Thoughts:

I feel like I don’t even need to do a review because everything that has raved about this product has been said on every social platform since its launch. Buuuuuuutttt, here we go anyways!

This product will breathe life into any makeup junkie and with good reason! Not only did I become obsessed just watching everyone else swatching the palette on social media but just the colors alone are so perfect! Then I finally take the plunge and get it for myself and the addiction then became real. Her highlight palettes are what make me excited about doing my makeup since I got them. Not lip products, not brows (like everyone else on Instagram), but her highlight palettes! Now, what used to frustrate me about this type of product was that they’re called highlighters, which technically they are not. Ever book I’ve read and learned from, states that any contour product with shimmer is a LUMINIZER, and matte enhancers are highlighters. The point of contouring is an optical illusion to draw your eyes from one area and enhance another. When the sun casts a shadow on something, there isn’t natural shimmer there, is there? What about a sunset? When light is brought to an area, there isn’t any glitter in that area is there? No, just rays of light meant to bring attention to it. Same thing with contouring, there traditionally is no shimmer in contour products but in this industry, you have to accept that there are hundreds of trends that will come and go and none of them are worth fighting technicalities over. She is still going to make millions of dollars on her product and I would waste time and energy arguing about it. Instead, I accept the trend for what it is and I love these products. Now, when and if the trend fades, these products are still multi-purpose for the eyes and if you want to get fancy, you can lightly brush it on your hair, just not your roots because that could cause a greasy effect. They blend well to create a nice, subtle glow or you can build it up for a glow that can signal NASA in outer space, either way, this palette does the job and without wasting a bunch of product to do it. This palette works incredibly well with my pale skin for the area it’s designed to go on. Now, there are other palettes, but I feel that those work better for darker complexions. Seriously, I don’t even know how you’re still reading this and why you haven’t just skipped out on this post to head to her website to snag one for yourself. C’mon, go, these are perfect and you won’t regret it!
