Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Strobe Balm palette

I was hoping that this might be a palette of somewhat decent creme-ish highlighters. I was wrong. The’re really not that great. They’re waxy, they don’t have much lighlight in them, and if you are not pretty pale - any deeper than the equivalent of Fenty’s Longwear Foundation in 170 - they’ll barely show up on you. If you’re looking for extremely subtle highlighters…well, honestly, you can pay less money for something more pigmented, and just use a lighter hand when applying.
