PÜR has been releasing some pretty amazing products this summer and their new Strobe/Highlighting Palettes ($34) intrigued me the moment I lied my eyes on them. The packaging is stunning, from the textured gold boxed the palettes comes packed in to the actual palettes which feature a glossy sturdy plastic compact with gold details. One opened you get a full size mirror and three generous pans of poured, cream highlighters. I have both palettes to share with you today: Moonlight Glow features lighter shades while Sun-Kissed Glow has more warm colors.
The formula is a silky cream that sort of dries down on application making it easy to tap and glide over other products. I found the best way to apply these products is with my fingers, the warmth can somehow melt and work the product better into the skin as well as picking it up from the pan. The formula is quite pigmented, a few taps of the product will give you a diffused glow that can be easily built. What makes this formula so nice to play with is the way it sits on top of the skin how beautifully in blends, you never have to fear it'll look powdery of too stark, you'll just glow!
The Sun-Kissed Glow Palette features a range of colors better suited for those with warmer and daker complexions. Aurora, the first shade on the left is a soft champagne highlight, Solar is a stunning peachy highlight and Dusk is a coppery bronze.
The Moonlight Glow Palette is better suited for those with paler skin. Going left to right. Twilight is the highlighter in the palette, a light pearly cream follower by Lunar, a pearly pink and Eclipse a bronzey pink.

I love the range of shadows in these palettes, I for one always love combining a few products when highlighting my face so having three shades in one palette is perfect. I also find layering and mixing the shades together can create even more options, making this palette so versatile. To my surprise I found myself to really enjoy the cream products and the finish they leave onto the skin, they can look so natural and are really the best product to use to get that glow-from-within look. These shades can almost refine your highlighting game and I for one, am ready to leave behind the ridiculous Instagram look with reflective beams of light shooting form my cheekbones that never look good in real life. All in all these palettes are definitely worth checking out and a pretty amazing value considering the generous size of three different shades you get for the money.
