The highlighters did perform a lot better but I do prefer the gold one over the lavender one, the lavender highlighter looked very odd when I wore it, like a streak of pink. I did like the golden highlighter in this.
My final impression would have to be no. I wouldn’t buy this or recommend it, even at its affordable price point. Maybelline has better quality shadows for the same price point, so I would pass on this. I also don’t feel the shadows are woman of color friendly, my skin tone is considered medium and if these appeared too light or ashy on my skin tone, it would not work for deeper skin types.
These eyeshadows are probably not something I will use again. They were very powdery and did not have the pigmentation I like. I tried applying the eyeshadows several different ways, yet I still didn't like the way they looked. With shimmery eyeshadows, I like to wet my brush to make them a bit more pigmented, but wetting my brush did nothing with these eyeshadows. Because these eyeshadows are so powdery, they have A LOT of fallout. Some fallout is always expected, but nowhere near this much. My undereyes and cheeks were so shimmery from the eyeshadow that I almost didn't even need to use the highlighter.
Now, on to the highlighter. The highlighters work. They aren't anything special, but I didn't really expect much from a highlighter that comes bundled in an eyeshadow palette. They are more of a shimmery highlighter than a bold shine, so if you prefer a very subtle highlight, these are for you.
Overall, I won't be using this product again. For the price, it isn't worth it. There are many other drugstore eyeshadow palettes I would recommend before this one.
The warm side is a bit better and I love the hues here, but that's not enough to recommend the palette. As for the highlighters, they seem to perform better and I can see myself using the gold one in the future.
Overall, I do like the idea behind the palette - it would have been a great travel option if the quality was better. As is, I don't think it can compete with some other drugstore brands in the same price range.
