I find myself going through stages when it comes to highlighter. Sometimes I love it and simply can't go out without a dash of highlight, other times I'm not too fussed and find it an unnecessary step for completing a look. The Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Trio Palette has changed that completely, introducing three beautiful new shades to my makeup stash and rekindling my love for highlighter; this is one palette you don't want to miss if you love a more illuminated look.

The palette is extremely light-weight, probably one of the more light-weight palettes I have come across and so would make a great addition to your travel bag or for applying on-the-go. The palette features a full sized mirror as well as a dual-ended highlighter brush, which I've actually found really great for applying highlight precisely to the top of my cheekbones. The palette includes three shades, which can be used for both the face and body, so quite multi-purpose.

I think the three shades selected for this palette have been very cleverly selected, as each would work well in all seasons and the selection, although modest, is great for a lovely array of looks and occasions. My favourite shade is Pyrite which is a gorgeous bronze gold-champagne that I already know will be my go-to shade in the summer, lovely when I'm avoiding the blush and want a more bronzed glow. Next up we have Oasis which is a lovely marbled frosted taupe, very lovely when lightly applied to the brow bone. Last but not least, Twilight, which is a gorgeous iridescent pink.

Overall I do find the formula for all is lovely, a very light-weight powder that feels weightless on the skin and is super easy to apply and blend. I do find that Pyrite is more to my taste in the finish, as Oasis in more shimmery than I tend to go for and Twilight is a nice in-between of the two.

The Naked Illuminated Trio is a wonderful nifty little palette that will effortlessly work with a variety of complexions and confidence levels and for £29, it's not badly priced either. Urban Decay palettes are always worth picking up and this is another one I think would slot in nicely to any makeup adorers beauty stash.
