Highlighting (or strobing) is all the rage these days so ColourPop made the process a no brainer by giving us all-in-one kits that work perfectly with your skin tone. There are kits- one for fair to medium skin and the other for medium to dark skin. They each feature one blush, two highlighters and three lippie stix. All feature new shades that are exclusive to these kits as well. But before you buy, check out these swatches because you may find you want both.

The Parasol highlighter and Thistle lippie stix are the only shades that repeat in each set so that's a bit of a let down if you wanted to purchase both. Also the Avalon highlighter is the one shade that isn't exclusive to this set as it is available in the permanent range. That's also a disappointment to anyone interested in this kit who already owns that particular shade like myself. I think the shades selected are perfect for the intended skin tones. While all the shades in the lighter kit may not be the best for darker skin tones, I think the darker kit would work well for lighter skin tones as well. But again you would end up with some duplicates. I am loving the lippie stix in the darker kit and might just overlook the duplicate highlighter I'd end up with.
