I'm not sure when exactly...but I believe they recently reformulated and/or repackaged this. I remember owning it a few years ago after finding it at the Dollar Store...and loving it as an eyeshadow until it either broke or dried out. Anyhoo, I found this again when I was browsing WnW new products...similar but slightly different, a larger pan than the original, a flip top instead of a screw off lid, and the shade is called Catwalk Pink. I love it as a blush/highlight and again as an eyeshadow. There's four different stripes of color so u can choose if you want to use seperate strips, or swirl them altogether. I really like it, especially for the price

I bought it because it looked like too faced snow bunny bronzer. And I agree that this palette does have the similar kind of usage for snow bunny on my skin tone (nc15), which is an illuminating bronzer. However the from just swatching on my arm right after I opened it, I can tell the illuminating shimmer looks extremely cheap in person and in my personal opinion, and this leads to a very cheap looking glow on my face when I tried it on, a glow that is not delicate enough. I have again learned the lesson that I should've never bought things that doesn't have a tester and I shouldn't expect much from makeup that doesn't put out testers. All in all I personally don't think it's worth it for me even thought it's cheap.

I really like this product. It's large and you can use certain colors solo or in combination depending on how you play with it. It is a bit dusty/powdery which is why I am giving it one less lippie. The colors are pretty and flattering though. Great value.

This is the first highlighter I've ever purchased. While I do like it, I'd like to try other highlighting products and wouldn't repurchase this one. This product contains four colors: light gold, light pink, mid-toned pink, & bronze. The shades can be used individually or swirled together. While the colors are gorgeous they're also all super shimmery. The luminosity comes from fine microglitter. It doesn't look natural... it looks like I have glitter on my face. I'm okay with that but I wanna give off more of a "lit-from-within" vibe. Other highlighters that I've swatched have more of a satin finish, a more subtle sheen (that can be built up if you really want to glow)... rather than all the shimmer & wow factor coming from straight up glitter. It's pretty but I know this wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. ALSO I tried using this as eyeshadow and it DID NOT WORK. The more you blend, the more the pigmentation seems to wane, leaving only glitter in it's wake. So it really just looked like I had finely milled glitter on my eyes and the bronze color was undetectable.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I can't say this enough, but I want to stockpile this product for the rest of my life haha. I would recommend this to any skintone. It doesn't dry my ever so dry skin out, it makes my cheeks glow so naturally and if I really wanna sparkle I just have to keep adding more on without it feeling heavy. It's truly beautiful, I love the palette and I would buy a store out of all of this! The price is ridiculously cheap ladies, get it while you can!

Edit 02/25/16: these were reformulated & only offering is catwalk pink but omg is it ever gorg! 1 of my fave highlighters the pan is bigger the colors are more pale less like a blush more like a highlighter. Winning!!---Right now I have Starlight Bronze & Catwalk Pink. I had had Strike A Pose Rose but some of my makeup was lost when I moved half ways across the country & I never thought to replace it coz I've been using Catwalk Pink for my choice as a pink blush or Starlight Bronze as a combo bronzer-blush. Go with the grain of the stripes not against for best results. I don't use normal blushes much anymore just these & I own evthing from elf to Clinique to Nars for blushes but I reach for these the most def HG status. I've never seen the peach one in stores in my travels home & away. Simply lovely. USD$3.99 & cruelty-free!

I really like this bronzer and have it in all the colors Catwalk is my favorite. This is very illumunating satin like finish if used to heavy. I like that strips of color because it makes for a multipurpose product that could be used as a highlighter/eyeshadow/blush/bronzer because you can use each strip using a small brush to apply the product or swirl a larger brushes to create soft glow effects. The texture is silky.The only downer is the packaging. I don't like that it is round and some of the best colors are narrowed down to smaller segment because they sit on the outside of the circle. I would like to see it in a square or retangle form and with a deeper pan because I have droped and broke one before but was able to repair them in place using a few drops of alcohal and a cotton round. I have repurchace this so many times that it would pain me if they changed it or discontinued it. If they did I would only expect something better and this is pretty good stuff and it is supper affordable.

I really don't know what this is supposed to do. I cannot see it on my skin and it seems to fall off my face no matter how much moisturizer I use to keep it in place. The colors have no depth and the powder is not finely milled. I noticed that the reviewers who rave about it are all under 25, so that's why this not working for a 59 yr old. Returned it to CVS and went back to L'Oreal and Revlon. God bless the world of cheap makeup.

I would say I've already have purchased this 4x's. I love this product and it compliments my tan/olive skin (C40) perfectly! I use it as a blush and when I'm near out; I use the highlight gold to define my eyebrows! ;) I highly recommend this to anyone who is obsessed with bronzers!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
