I thought it was about time I did a post dedicated to this palette. I’m sure everyone knows the brand NYX. They make incredible, on trend, cruelty free makeup. It’s amazing quality but extremely reasonably priced! I’m yet to try a product from NYX I don’t like. I use their micro brow pencil everyday (I prefer it to the ABH Brow wiz and it’s a third of the price!) This palette though is one of my favourite products ever and I don’t feel it gets enough hype! I lusted over this for months until my boyfriend surprised me with it last Christmas.
You get 7 shades (worth 20g) for just £16! (Less if you get your hands on it during one of Feel Unique’s sales!) There is literally a shade for every occasion in this palette. Some shades are very pigmented, others are more subtle. In my opinion five of the shades are perfect for pale skin. The other two I find too dark for me but I use them as eyeshadows so they definitely don’t go to waste!
The pallete has a yellowy shade (I use this for eyeshadow), pinky rose, lilac, rose gold, gold, bronze (I use this for eye shadow too) and champagne. I have left the swatch photos unedited so you can see what the shades are really like on pale skin.
The champagne and pinky rose shades are my two favourites for everyday. They’re not extremely pigmented so they give a gorgeous subtle glow to the skin though they’re definitely blendable. The bronze, gold, rose gold and lilac are very pigmented but so smooth and blendable.
Honestly you cannot go wrong with this pallete. My friend who has very tanned skin also has this pallete and she absolutely loves it too so it’s definitely perfect for everyone. It’s so affordable for the quality. If someone was to take away all my highlighters this would be the one I’d keep as it’s so versatile! I really don’t think this gorgeous palette gets the hype it deserves! I also think this is a great palette to start with if you’re just beginning to try out highlighting as the shades are easy to work with and blend out beautifully with not a lot of work.
You can buy this from Boots, Feel Unique and lots of other places so it’s easily accessible. Do you own this pallete or have you tried it before?
