Smooth as can be...I like the blush...The highlight is nice too and whenever I wear them and happen to check myself in a mirror I get surprised how radiant my skin looks...I really like ND's products, but this highlighter is just glitter, when I use it, I'll get on all my face because it doesn't stay... the color of the blush is the winner here

Has a cool shine...I love the color...So I have very oily skin and my highlighers tend to look greasy after a few hours but when I tried this it set nicely and is natural looking on my light to medium skin but when I really want the all day glowy almost wet looking skin I set this highlight with Becca opal pressed and it's soooo beautiful...it's a very good idea, but, it's feels SO heavy on the face and it's very sticky and subtle (I want my highlighter to blind people okay) I think if this was in a pressed powder form and had high pigment it would be AMAZING, I am seriously considering returning it
