Additional Information

Illuminating Palette is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 279.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from could be way better Overall, this product is very affordable but could be better. It’s very chalky and hard pressed powder highlight. This product isn’t very pigment and the palette has a lot of fall out, must pack on a lot of product for it to be a highly visible glow on the skin. It’s a dry product but I haven’t tried using it as a wet highlight, other ELF highlighters are better and just as affordable. Would pass on this product and opt in for my e.l.f. Heart Defensor Highlighter Palette.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chalky It had a really good looking shiny top coat...and that's about it. After that, the palette is chalky and just...not good

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quite Chalky This product is not dark skin friendly. The shades are too cool toned and dont have much shine. All around disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle Glow I bought this palette as one of my first products from e.l.f. I can say the Illuminating Palette definitely earned e.l.f a good opinion from me. When I put the lightest pearl shade as a highlight it wasn't "high-beam/blind-you" but it offered a subtle glow which is great for day to day use. Overall I love this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I mean it’s fine I guess It worked just fine but I just bought it and first thing I see when opening the box is that the packaging itself is already covered in the product. And when I opened it, 2 of the Little palette things were crushed and the mirror is covered in powder. :/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not highlighters! Finishing powders! SUBTLE sheen! The main reason that this has so many bad reviews is that people are expecting it to be a highlighting palette. I can see why there is confusion, as ELF could be better as advertising this product properly. These are actually more like the Hourglass Ambient Light Powders. Not super shimmery, not meant to work as a blinding highlighter. These have a small amount of color pigment, and a SLIGHT shimmery effect. These are meant to be used as a finishing powder with a subtle sheen. So for people who have dry skin, or are just looking for a slightly glowy complexion, you can use these powders to set all over your face. Since they aren't super shimmery, you won't have glitter all over your face, but just a subtle, lit from within kind of glow. As long as you know what they are actually used for, you won't be disappointed. I mainly use the lightest shade, as that is what matches my skin tone best. You can mix together different shades to get a decent match to your skin tone. Sometimes I use some of the darker shades around the perimeters of my face, almost like a barely there bronzer. An important thing to note is that I doubt that anyone darker than tan will be able to make much use of these colors. These powders are definitely more for fair to medium skin tones. I have sensitive dry skin, and I find that these powders don't irritate my skin or exaggerate my dry patches. Overall this is a great affordable palette, but ELF needs to work on the way they describe the product, in order to have less disappointed people who were expecting this to be something it's not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Basically loose powder with a little glitter on it If you're wondering what this product is like, imagine loose powder wish a dash of glitter in it, pressed into a pan. Though the highlight shades are pretty below average, the packaging is sturdy and feels expensive with an AMAZING mirror. I guess I'll be using it as a mirror!

I have this palette and I only use the two darker shades on the bottom. Is it possible to buy these shades separately?

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.
