The Kat Von D Metal Crush Palette is described as ‘extreme’ and it’s certainly delivering on exceptional sheen and highlight. There are three shades, Gammaray, a kind of pink/peach, Helix, iridescent white/green, and Rose Shock, an iridescent pink/silver.
I think it’s the highest beam sheen I’ve come across, and I’ve seen a lot! They’re using ultra reflective pigments that you just don’t come across that often despite all the claims and notably, the formula isn’t ‘gappy’ in the swatch. Often if I’m swatching this type of product you can get ‘gaps’ in how it lays down on the skin. That’s not a problem in daily use because you’re using a brush to apply and diffuse, but it does show a differentiation in formulas. I used my fingertips for this and was impressed with how smoothly it went onto my skin. It’s eye-shadow intensity on pigment so you can multi-task it.
At £32, and with literally hundreds of highlight palettes around, it’s toppy, price-wise, but I can’t complain about performance or quality on this so if you love to highlight and strobe, I’d recommend it. You can find it at Debenhams.

Jane, if you have access, check out the newly released NYX Love You So Mochi highlighter palette in Lit Life. It’s pretty close to being a dupe of the KVD! I’m not sure the quality is a match though (I didn’t buy the KVD but your swatches look lovely). Thanks for your review!
