Review: NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette

So if you saw my Generation Beauty Toronto 2017 post you’ll know that I got this highlighting palette among many other things for free! Recently I’ve opened this sucker up and I’m so so so impressed!! Holographic highlighters are so in this year and this palette offers both that and regular shimmery highlights – i.e. the best of both worlds!

This palette is $27 CAD on their Canadian website but $19 USD on their American website. Either way, its still better then $40-50 for some other highlighting palettes. The colour pay off for these is incredible and I think that it’d look good on any skin tone. The shades are as follows:

Top, Left to Right:
The Gold With Gold Pearl
Cool Tone With Light Pink Shimmer
Lavender With Shimmer
Golden Pink With Shimmer

Bottom, Left to Right:
Light Gold With Peachy Undertones and Shimmer
Bronze With Gold Pearl
True Champagne With Shimmer

I love these colours so much! This palette is truly for any occasion because these colours can be used for anything from festivals and weddings to school or work.

Great Packaging
Lovely Pigmentation
Good On All (if Not Most) Skintones

Golden Pink With Shimmer (the top right corner) was harder to apply then the rest of them

Verdict 4.5/5

This palette is perfect if you’re looking to buy a good highlighting palette thats versatile and not so expensive! I love that these colours can work on everyone and that they include both holographic and everyday shades! Good Job NYX!

As Always Thank You for Reading!
Take Care and Keep Smiling!
