I purchased the duo at Ulta when it was on sale for only $5 !!! This was a true steal for the price, I even went back & purchased a second one the next day just to have in stash. I am an NC45 in MAC or CLAY 2/Medium in IMAN, the blush is a little too light/sheer for my skin tone but it's buildable & looks natural when blended well into the skin. The highlight on the other hand looks beautiful, gives off a lovely glow. The blush swatched comes off light & the highlight is very pigmented in my opinion. It doesn't come out chalky-looking either & it last all day for me. The packaging is fine, it's a screw on/off lid that can become sort of annoying at times. Overall I give this item 2 thumbs up & 5 out of 5 for quality/performance & price. I placed above some swatches of how the colors show on my skin tone.
Honestly I'm glad I came across this awesome duo at such an expensive price ...I wouldn't have been able to afford it at the regular price, the "Soft Lights" (highlighter) side can go for $28 alone for a full size.
I just got this at Ulta for $5(sale ends in two weeks ) I could not pass this up very pretty blush and highlighter. I'm not sure how the blush will show on darker skintones. Go get this!!
