The purple is deeper, yet somehow magical. The pink is like a cotton candy baby pink. The white gold peach is an ethereal shade that brightens my skintone.

In the photo above I put the purple shade on as a contouring blush shade. Then I blended the pink in with the purple. Then I highlighted with the white gold. I don’t feel like it accentuates texture on my cheeks. In the video below I give a demo on how to apply the Kevyn Aucoin Neo Limelight Highlighter as a blush and highlighter on pale skin.

Kevyn Aucoin Neo Limelight Highlighter Review

The Kevyn Aucoin Neo Limelight Highlighter palette looks gorgeous on my pale skin as both blush and highlighter. I think it would be gorgeous on medium and deep skintones as a highlighter or blush topper. With three colors you get some variety from the palette too.

The Kevyn Aucoin Neo Limelight Highlighter shimmer is more refined, less chunky, than many highlighters I own. This helps it to not emphasize texture on the skin. I think the formula is slightly powdery though. It looks best when I use my Make It Dewy setting spray to get rid of the powdery look.

If you aren’t interested in luxury highlighters, you’ll want to skip this. If you don’t like shimmery or slightly unusual highlighters, the Neo Limelight Highlighter palette is not for you. If you won’t use all three colors, this isn’t the palette for you.

If you’re looking for a luxury highlighter, the Kevyn Aucoin Neo Limelight Highlighter palette may be for you. If you like the versatility of the three shades in the palette and want to use them to highlight or as blush topper, this is definitely for you. If you love refined highlight that’s not chunky, this is the palette for you.

  • Oh by the way, for anyone who is was/is a Nars shopper and is no longer shopping their products because they are no longer CF like me-I recommend Kevyn Aucoin as a a great brand to explore- especially in the highlighter/blush category-this product is the perfect example as a trio/palette, but even the singles, blush/highlight/sculpting/bronzer. the Neo Lights Collection is beautiful-check out the Molten Metals Lip Color too. & in other categories too, mascara, foundation, liner(liquid and pencil)

  • Oh gosh, seeing it on you even makes me so much more excited about it-I think it’s stunning on you!!-I love how you can use it as a multi tonal product/or use the shades individually. I think it’s a great pale girl highlighter for sure. I agree, you’d have to love all three or love using them together.-purple is a color that is gorgeous on you and I can see that beautiful purple tone. I’ve seen different looks with it and it can be used on the eyes as well-see above, I do love that type of highlighter because other highlighters that have more of a textured shimmer can emphasize pores/redness/texture. I love the ‘trend’ of etheral, multi dimensional highlight-also using color(I remember the article you did with James Vincent on draping-using color for dimension..I love how you said it doubles as a topper for blush/blush!!!) for someone like me it makes sense because I own very few, (I love KA Celestial Powder in Candelight(the pale girl shade that coincides with The sculpting powder) as I was saying to Alison and the Charlotte Tilbury Youth Illuminating -speaking of Glow, the Glowing skin with Jade set I purchased has the Natasha Denona All Over Face and Body, I tried it tonight when I got home with Face Glow foundation(Even though that highlighter is more shimmery perhaps, it’s still refined and I really like it, I’ll have to show you guys photos in our group to see what you think-it includes The sculpting powder in Light(pale girl shade..p.s Face Glow Foundation ) I’m happy because I have it with KA Candelight in The Legacy Palette in Medium, so now that I have my shade I love it. I definitely am picking up the Make it Dewy spray, I am noticing a bit of the powdery aftermath, I think it is more evident in the summer, and now I can emulate your ‘Glowing skin routine for problem skin’/routine for summer.

  • Okay, now I want this. I should probably store all my other cheek products because I would use this every day. Seriously.

    • Beware, Kevyn Aucoin is like that, once you buy a product you’ll want to buy another:)hahaha…I would definitely recommend it-it’s on my to buy list next time I shop. The quality is ultra gorgeous so I think it’s worth it like Courtney said if you are looking for a more lit from within, kind of refined highlight. Not all people prefer that, some prefer more shimmer. I love how it’s multi-tonal/dimensional and the shades are all great #palegirlshades I only own a few highlighters, one from Kevyn Aucoin which is the Celestial Powder in Candlelight-I have a few texture issues and it gives you a very fresh lit from within glow. And other than that I have the Charlotte Tilbury Illuminating Youth Powder(part of a past ltd collection called Norman Parkinson-last time I checked it was actually available again and on sale on the official site-oh, yes and now I have the Natasha Denona All Over Glow shimmer powder that I got with a Beautylish set-the Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer is pretty amazing-it can be mixed and used as a sheer foundation, a concealer, a full coverage product-the sensual skin enhancer primer has a mixing tray at the top where it dispenses product! And I have a couple of the cream lipsticks called The Expert Lipsticks-I grabbed a lip kit with those during a spacenk sale…One of my friend’s purchased his Legacy Palette for my birthday and after then I fell in love with the brand-

      • Thanks for the recommends, Souhaila. I almost never wear highlighter because so many are too warm for me. I got the NYX lavender but I never use it. But this neo one looks so gorgeous on Courtney. It’s perfect. I do have some other KA products. I love his eye shadows, and his eye quint in # 2 (I think it’s a quint) is the best true neutral-cool eye palette ever. The shadow quality is great. I also have his cream blush in a raspberry pink/ fuchsia color. I do have the sensual skin enhancer but it’s so dense I hesitate to rub it into the delicate eye area so it’s more of a special occasion use. Altogether a big fan of this brand.
