Pur Moonlight Glow & Sun-Kissed Glow Strobe/Highlight Palettes: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
New from Pur and available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart are these gorgeous cream highlighter trios called the Strobe/Highlight Palette ($42 CAD). Available in a dreamy moonlit trio and a glowy sunny trio, the formulation promises a radiant glow with a powder finish. To see some swatches and my review, click......
Pur Moonlight Glow Strobe/Highlight Palette
Packaging:
The Pur Strobe/Highlight Palettes come in dark brown and gold rectangular compacts. There is a large mirror inside and each shade is 5 grams. The palette feels very sleek and shiny. On top of which, the design also features a snazzy closure mechanism that makes the compact feel even more luxurious.

Formulation:
Each Pur Strobe/Highlight Palette holds three cream highlighters. The formulation is very silky and smooth yet it will eventually set to a powder finish. The "Sun-Kissed Glow" trio includes a light champagne shimmer, a light peach shimmer, and a soft bronze shimmer. In my opinion, "Aurora" and "Solar" are just a bit too similar to each other, making it kind of redundant to include both. All three are very pigmented yet easily blendable to give a sheerer sheen.

The "Moonlight Glow" palette, on the other hand, features three much softer shades. You get a pale gold shimmer, a soft pearly pink, and a light nude bronze. The pigmentation for these three is noticeably weaker, making things slightly streaky. However, if you are just applying a thin layer, the formulation shouldn't cause any problems.

I am personally not a fan of cream highlighters. Even though these set to a powder finish and has a similar wear-time as powder highlighters, I still like the convenience of a powder highlighter. With that said, I think these are very well-fromulated and the colors are gorgeous and wearble. If you have dry skin or simply prefer cream products, definitely check these out!
