This highlighter is so pretty. My favorite color is the brownish looking color. It's very pigmented and looks so pretty on people with light skin. I sadly am pretty darkish or medium tone skin so once it doesn't look good, but with anyone with lighter skin, it'll look so perfect! It goes on very easily and a little goes a long way! And the packaging is so pretty!! And it comes with a mirrior which is one of the things i like the most!

This is an absolute stunning highlighter palette. Definitely worth the money. I never really hear anyone talk about this but it’s amazing. You can go for natural or build up the intensity. Beautiful shades that give a nice sheen. No sparkles or anything which I love.

I have received so many compliments about glowing skin after using this palette. It's great for all skin types and it has a beautiful shade range. It includes a matte finish powder as well! It lasts all day and I'd recommend it to others!

I love this highlighting palette and think it is worth the money! It gives a great glow to the upper cheek bones with the lightest shade, and gives a great glow to contoured areas with the deeper shades. It is worth the money!

Save your money. I honestly purchased this palette for the packaging and presentation alone, like can you blame me? It’s gorgeous, hence the 2 stars. The product inside itself is so boring. The powders barely have any pigmentation and do really nothing for my skin. The only reason this product still sits in my collection is because of the packaging.

This product was sent to damaged to me from a subscription box and I'm simply sad to say that i used it because it's all around a gorgeous palette. Not happy how it arrived but willing to purchase on my own to review.

An amazing highlighter palette! I have a lighter skin tone & both shades in this palette work well on my skin. It can be built up to a more dramatic highlight or just for a settle one. I don’t feel like I hear anyone talk about this palette, but I would recommend going in store to swatch the shades before purchasing to see if you like them!

This is my new go to highlighter! I'm fair skinned, so I typically use the lightest shade more often, but both shades are gorgeous. I rarely use the middle shade to set my under eyes, but it does work. All around, this is an excellent highlighter palette!

Hi guys! I picked up this palette during the Friends and Family sale on Tarte's website for 30% off and I'm in love. The glow is so pretty and soft (not too natural if you're wondering, although it could be if you use a light hand). This is seriously so pretty and I love the packaging!!! I do have a video on youtube for anyone who would like to see swatches. I can't copy and paste the link here because this site won't let me but the link is in my bio for those of you who'd like to drop by. This retails for $42 almost everywhere, but currently it is $35 on the Tarte website sale section. I'm in love with the colors, I don't mind the middle highlighting powder (setting powder) and even though the rosey shade is a bit dark for me, I use it as an eyeshadow topper and have had much luck and love for that. I totally recommend this and would buy again! #loveandonlylove #amazing

I've had this palette for awhile and the middle does not seem like a highlight. Is it used for something else or is it actually a highlight and I'm just using it wrong.
