Chi Chi Sunset Glow Highlighter Palette

I have been eyeing off this palette ever since it was first released but I am a total tight-arse when it comes to my cosmetics so I've never been able to bring myself to spend $50 on a single palette. But last weekend Myer were having a sale where it was only $10, so of course I had to grab it! I actually feel slightly guilty getting it so cheap - as I work in product design/importing at the moment I am painfully aware how much even the packaging is worth so this really was a steal. Seeing as half of you lovely readers are outside of Australia, Chi Chi is an aussie cosmetics brand that is sold in a bunch of our mid-range department stores (so Myer, Target). It's really nice stuff, I have bought a tonne of their nail polishes in the past, and have a few of their hand creams, so this was my first foray into their makeup. 
I have to say I am really impressed with these! They are a pressed powder, but it does have a nice soft creamy consistency. And you get a tonne of product in each pan - I'm not sure if it comes across in the pictures but this palette is huge, like it won't even fit into my train case. 
The range of shades is also really nice. I have said in the past that I am super pasty and finding highlighters that aren't bronze or look like a bright blush even when not in the sun is a hard task. Sure some of these are a bit on the gold side for me and I will most likely end up wearing them as an eyeshadow, but the majority are quite soft shades that are almost invisible on the skin but are blinding when the light hits them.My personal favs are Airlie and Manly. 
But if you need a nice range of highlighters in your life, then this is worth picking up. Heck now I have it in my hands I actually feels it's even worth it full price.
