Hot Product of the Week: NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette 

I have heard so many great things about this highlighting palette and couldn’t wait to add it to my makeup collection! 

Keep reading for my review! 

This palette consists of 7 beautiful highlighting shades and retails for $19 at Ulta. This might seem like a steep price for NYX, which is a drugstore brand, but in my opinion it is well worth it! 

The top row consists of 4 highlighting shades that have a slight iridescence to them. Iridescent shades have been quite popular lately with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit and the more recent Kat Von D Alchemist palette. If you are looking for a more inexpensive way to achieve these kinds of looks, this palette is definitely a great option! 

In addition to the iridescent shades, the bottom row consists of three more wearable shades. The Lee is a shade for medium skin, deeper skin, and pale skin. Basically, every highlight you could ever need is in this palette! 

Aside from the colors, the formula of the highlights is incredible! They are extremely buttery and pigmented and don’t have too much powder kick-back. These aren’t the most intense highlight shades at first, but you can definitely build up the intensity. This makes it perfect for everyone, no matter what kind of look you are going for.
