Yippee! The Holiday 2017 releases have begun! I have absolutely nothing against the fact that brands have already started releasing their holiday collections. I saw this Online Only Holiday Glow palette from Ofra on the Ulta website and it looked like a great deal! You get 8 shadows, 4 blushes, a highlighter and a bronzer for $49.
I had actually never tried anything from the brand so I was super curious. Ofra highlighters are supposed to be amazing so I figured this was the perfect opportunity to try one out!
Americano Bronzer, Blissful Highlighter

The formulas for the highlighter, blushes and bronzer were all really good! The blushes blended out very easily on the cheeks and stayed all day. The bronzer was also very easy to apply and it has a warm-golden tone that would look best on pale to medium skin! The highlighter, Blissful, was really pretty but unfortunately way too dark for my skin tone. Such a disappointment because that was one of the main reasons I purchased the palette!

The eyeshadows in my opinion were okay. Not bad, not great, just okay. They swatched beautifully so I figured they would work great on the eyes. However, they weren’t vibrant at all. They applied very sheer and it took a lot to build them up. They also faded a lot after just a few hours of having them on my lids.
Overall, I would only purchase this palette for the face products. The blushes, highlighter and bronzer were all really great! But do you need it? Not necessarily.
What are you most looking forward to with all the holiday collections?!
