REVIEW: NYX Strobe of Genius Highlighting Palette

Hallelujah! NYX is finally available in South Africa! I adore all things rose gold and sparkly, so I wasted no time in getting my hands on the Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette. Here is my first impression and review of it – enjoy!

The palette includes 7 pigmented colours that make you feel hypnotised by their shimmer and shine. There are 4 smaller highlighters (2 g each) and 3 larger ones (4 g each) which you can use individually or layered for a more glamorous look. The powder has a velvety texture that glides onto your skin, instantly brightening your face. I think the shades will look great on any skin tone.

Gold, Light Pink, Lavender, Golden Pink, Peach, Rose Gold/Bronze, Champagne

How I use it

I have been using the palette for the past month as a highlighter, eye shadow and blush. I use a blush brush to apply colour to my cheek and the Real Techniques Deluxe Shading brush to highlight the tops of my cheek bones with a lighter shade.

The colours are incredibly beautiful, I am obsessed! My favourite shades are the Rose Gold/Bronze colour and the Lavender. The Palette doesn’t name the swatches, I’ve just tagged them according to colour.

The palette is very versatile, great for both day or glam makeup looks. The NYX palette is an easy, dreamy makeup delight! Don’t overdo it, a little goes a long way!

If you are new to the world of highlighter palettes or you are thinking of trying this one, I would definitely recommend it.

Give this glow a go!
