Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette review

The Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights collab was probably one of my favourites this year. Why? Because… HIGHLIGHTERS! I already love Makeup Geek shadows and blushes, and their new highlight powder formula is out of this world.

Makeup Geek Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette review 2

This sturdy cardboard palette holds three pans (7 g / 0.25 oz each). As are all MUG products, these powders are cruelty-free, and these ones are also free of talc and paraben. The formula is really soft and doesn’t kick up a ton of powder. Think MUG shadows only for your face. Only the best quality powders here!

Swatched and shot in the sunlight, these are glorious. Nightlight is a perfect gold for my skintone as it isn’t too yellow or too dark. Starlight is a beautiful and unique light rose highlight that I think could work on all skintones. And Sunlight, how pretty is this one? It’s a bit too dark to use as a highlight, but I can use it to add a bronzey glow to my cheeks.

So I actually used all three highlighters for this look. I started with Sunlight (bronze) low on my cheek to give my face definition. I then used Starlight on my cheeks for a pink glow and Nightlight on the top of my cheekbones.

I actually thought Starlight (the pink) would be MORE pink than it was, but it’s really just a nice pearl pink highlight. This powder had little to no fallout and was not glittery at all, just silky, smooth shimmer.

Also wearing Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye in Sage, Maybelline Creamy Matte lipstick in Brown Blush and Almond Rose.

  • I have this but don’t reach for it because it shows all my skin texture. I even tried using it on the lids and I find it really enhance all my fine lines so my lids look like a wrinkly old prune.

  • Ahh they’re all so pretty!

  • Definitely don’t need more highlighter, but the packaging on this is gorgeous and I love that Kathleen included shades to cater to all skintones. She’s one of my favourite YouTubers for many reasons!

  • This is such a pretty palette! The packaging looks stunning! Thanks for sharing 🙂
