I love this new palette, all shades have great pigmentation and complement each other beautifully. The bronzer is most definitely my favorite: it's warm and gives a very natural and shaped look to the skin. I like to apply it on the sides of my nose for a more sleek look, on my jaws to lightly accentuate those, on my ears for them to match the rest of my face and on my temples and hairline to diminish the size of my forehead. The blush looks like a bright orange but translates into a rose gold on the cheeks. It's unlike any other blush I have in my collection and it looks beautiful on pale skin. When it comes to the shade in the middle I don't really know how to describe it, Essence calls this the 'lighter powder' and suggests applying it to the highest points of the face, it's matte and has a little bit of a peachy edge to it. Since it does not include any shimmer I decided to start using it as a setting powder on my under eyes, the bridge of my nose and the space inbetween my eyebrows. It's not amazing but it does the job, I wish it would have been a baked highlighter, that would have been over the top smokin'.
