“Introducing the Strobe of Genius Palette, our incredible new collection of must have illuminators designed to give you everything needed to achieve today’s most buzzed about highlighting trend: Strobing. This breakthrough palette features seven velvety-smooth shades that will enhance your features with serious levels of illumination. The best part? Mastering the look is easy—all you need is a little extra natural light.” (Source: NYX)


How to use


Apply the shimmering shades to the highest parts in your face, even on the temples, brow bones, cheeks, nose, dimples and chin. To achieve a strobe effect like on the catwalk, use brighter sounds like “Icicle” and “Glamorous”.

Here you can see the Swatches of this range, the first three nuances are showing the bottom row. The four rear the top row of the NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette. The many included color nuances are great, so you can create or find for each skin tone the right color.
The colors are well pigmented and glitter very well on the skin. The durability I find good, but of course it depends on the skin texture and how often you refresh your makeup. I would love to have illustrated instructions for applying, I missed it especially for beginners.
Do you know the NYX Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette?

    Hallo Priscilla,
    Tolle Palette. Die Puder stelle ich mir auch gut als Lidschatten vor.
    Liebe Grüße

    Ich bin nicht so wirklich ein Strobing oder Highlighter Fan, aber sollte ich es mal ausprobieren wollen, ist NYX sicher eine gute Marke. Nicht zu teuer, aber auch nicht ganz billig in der Qualität.

      Da hast du Recht, bei vielen sehr günstigen Marken fehlt oftmals die Pigmentierung, sieht man auch in den Swatches zu der essence LE blossom dreams gut.
