Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural -- Worth it just for lightest shade alone I bought this on the recommendation of a YouTuber I like a lot, thataylaa. She's the only person I have ever heard mention this product, and I can see why a lot of people have overlooked it. She mentioned she really only likes the lightest shade, which made sense when I purchased it. It's a beautiful and very natural highlight, not overly blingy, doesn't emphasize texture. It does NOT swatch well, it looks chalky, but apply it to your face (try a natural hair brush) and it is GORGEOUS. The other colors do not perform the same, they have essentially no shimmer at all. This always confused me till recently -- why don't the other colors look as beautiful on the cheekbone? Then a thought struck me yesterday: maybe the other colors are meant to be like Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders! I just read the top helpful review here -- and that reviewer seems to agree with me, she uses them all over the face. I will have to give it a try. Do note the orangey color is quite orange, but if you have deeper skin it will probably look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from soft glow i bought this a while ago and i really enjoy it. gives the skin a soft glow and illuminates nicely. its not a highlighter though if you want highlight try a different product. this is an illuminating product to give the skin glow. great for everyday or work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok for everyday wear I got this as a free gift and decided to give it a shot. It is great for everyday wear! The colors are not super pigmented, so it definitely has a subtle effect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OOF I love E.L.F and always have! This is the worst highlighter I have ever ever used in my entire life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Either the product has very poor pigmentation or has been pressed so hard nothing comes off it. I received this as a free gift and wouldn't spend a penny on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good if you want a subtle glow This product is not the typical glowy highlighter, and is very subtle and a little powdery. I'm not necessarily disappointed with it, but it's definitely more of a natural healthy glow to the face than a highlight or makeup-guru glow. Would be good for school or the office.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mehhh I got this for Christmas. While I like top two highlights the bottom two colors do not show. Which is horrible because I'm pretty fair skinned. That being said, just for those two colors it's not worth the price. Buy the singles and save your money

Is this palett better for light of dark skin tones? Also which ones are matte and which ones are shimmery

Asked by: PAPAY0
It's more suited for fair, all the way through medium-dark tones, depending on which shade you use. They are all shimmery.

I hear this palette is very subtle. Is that true, or does it have that really big glow to it?

Asked by: CuriousEyes
It depends on the highlighters you're used to. I think they offer an in between glow, they aren't blinding but they definitely have some payoff. Hope this helps.

Is the bottom left, more taupe colour a matte shade? It seems to be the perfect shade for me to contour with and if it's matter, I'd fall in love with it!

Asked by: wadethenerd
All of the shades are shimmery, so unfortunately you cannot contour with the taupe color. However, that shade isn't actually that dark in person, so even if it was matte you may not be able to contour with it. It's also a very peachy shade, too.
