To celebrate the color of the year – Radiant Orchid, Sephora and Pantone have launched a  blush and luminizer/highlighter  palette. This was a part of my recent birthday haul.

This is a gorgeous palette. The blush and luminizers are very finely milled and a little goes a very long way. Radiant Orchid will complement any skin tone, but one should be cautious as only the slightest tap of the brush is needed. It lasts 8+ hours, it applies smoothly and is very blendable.
The two luminizers Bridal Rose and Spanish Villa are gorgeous as well. I use them as highlighters since the concept of a luminizer is to lightly apply illuminating powder to the face. These are so finely milled and shimmerythat I find they work best accentuating the highpoints of the cheeks.
These are in an orchid ombre palette that is complete with a mirror. The only thing I do not like is that the pans are a bit smaller than their slots, are a bit crocked which I thin cheapens it a bit.
