How I use and staying power: To use, swipe a fan brush in the palette, tap off any excess and sweep it on the highlighting areas of your face on top of your foundation or bare skin.

NYX STROBE OF GENIUS ILLUMINATING PALETTE REVIEW

When I first got this palette, I did not really expect this product to work as a strobing product or face illuminator because powder highlighters have always only worked as a cheek and nose highlighting product in my case. This illuminating palette tops the list of all strobing, illuminating and highlighting products in any textures you name! I prefer using a fan brush because it picks up the required quantity and can be used to build up the glow; denser brush can give a blinding glow in just one swipe. Shade ’03’ is my favorite shade since it gives a very blinding glow which looks absolutely amazing especially in pictures. Another amazing shade is ’06’ which gives a beautiful rose gold sheen. You can also mix up different shades for a neutral glow. The best part about the palette is that every shade suits all skin tones. The glow lasts all-day-long without fading even a bit and literally looks like you have used a strobing cream if used on the cheek bones, nose, brow bones, outer corners of the nose opening, chin etc. and yet looks subtle and natural. Application isn’t messy either because there isn’t any visible fallout. I am highly obsessed with this palette and it has made all my other highlighters and illuminators useless!
