For highlighter beginners, this is a classic tri-shade palette to start with. Although it has been many years, I still own and use this palette to this day.
The packaging is made of heavy duty smooth matte black material with a magnetic enclosure, and the lettering on the front is a foiled metallic design. A nice sized mirror is embedded but the palette otherwise does not come with a brush.
The shades inside are covered by a plastic sheet with a label of each shade. I really wish this was printed on the back of the palette itself, which is completely blank, because once you lose this sheet and unless you have memorised the shades by name, there is no other way to recall what the shades names are.
I own the palette with rose gold lettering called Flash + Awe and is probably most suitable for fair, light, and medium-to-light skin tones. The first shade is called "Flash + Awe", a bright icy white shade. The second shade is called "Rosy Glow", a silvery pink shade. The last shade is called "Light of the Party" and is a rose gold with a shift duo-chrome effect. This last shade is, in my opinion, a good blush topper.
If you have medium-to-deep or a deeper skin tone, you are better off purchasing and using the palette with the gold lettering called Get It Glowin'. The shades in that palette are gold, champagne, and bronze shades.
While this is a highlighting palette, these shades can also be used on eyelids as a silvery eyeshadow.
My personal verdict: the glow is real. The powders are really soft and they really brighten my face. The volume of the glow is easily buildable. The quantity in the pans is also generous and has lasted me for several years.
