e.l.f shimmer palette has four different shades and there is a clear difference between the colors. So there really is a shade for everyone. The palette comes with a brush which can be good to use when you are using it as a highlighter under your eyebrows or inner corner of your eyes. For applying at the cheekbones, I feel it is easier to use my fingers.
The color I received is warm rosy beige and it is a really nice color for a highlight. I usually get the once with blue shimmer in them and they really look awful on my skin. I have a warm skin tone and blue highlight shades simply makes me look weird. If you are on the paler side a bluish shimmer might look beautiful on you.
I find the highlighter to be a little chalky but it blends easy and doesn’t look patchy on my skin. If you are like me, super dry and prefer not to use powders on top of foundation. Be sure that your foundation or BB cream has set before applying a powder on top or you will have problems with patchiness.
