REVIEW | NYX STROBE OF GENIUS PALETTE

This is a highlighting palette that I've wanted to try for some time now. Recently when shopping at an outlet centre, I popped into the beauty store and for once they stocked some NYX Cosmetics products which is how I came to own this beauty!

In the palette, you get 7 shades, in a range of different shades. It's suitable for all skin types as there's bound to be a shade suitable for your skin tone. I'm lucky enough that I can make a few different shades of this palette which means I get good value for money. However, for some people where only one shade works for your skin type then this will be a lot of money to spend on the palette. 

However, it is worth noting that this palette can become quite diverse and you can use it for inner corner highlight, shimmery bronzers, brow bone highlight, eyeshadow and even shimmer blushes!

These highlights are very pigmented and have such a smooth formula. They don't include any chunky glitters which I'm really glad about as this is something I can't stand. I find it helps to make it sit better on the skin and blend into your makeup more naturally. I also have noticeable pores and I find this does not highlight the problem areas compared to some of the normal drug store highlights!

Most of the shades are incredibly pretty in this palette, however, it's not the most travel-friendly which is what I like to look for in makeup because we end up travelling a lot on weekends.

Have you tried this palette - what did you think?
