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.
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!
Nightlight is described as a light gold with a reflective luminous finish.
Starlight is described as a rosy pink with a reflective luminous finish.
Sunlight is described as a soft copper with a reflective luminous finish.
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.

The Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlight Palette is only $39 USD and worth every damn penny!
