Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits ~ Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits have undoubtedly changed the makeup game and have brought it up several notches higher in the highlight world! Starting with the usual 4 pan of full sized highlights , the architect turned browcitect (That’s totally not a word – I just made that up lol ) has slayed the industry with her 6 pan highlighter palettes. This collaboration in particular was with my personal favourite beauty and lifestyle blogger , Nicole Guerriero. She has been a fan favourite among beauty gurus of youtube with millions of subscribers and a loyal fan base.

The brand itself has created brow products , contour palettes and highlighters in single pans as well as palettes.

The theme of the glow kit comes off as girly , fun and bubbly : all things Nicole!

Anastasia has created glow kits previously and if you’re not familiar to her formulas , they’re beyond creamy , appear almost wet and have a cream to powder finish that makes you glow crazy , we’re talking extra terrestrial here..
They’re metallic and ultra luminous and create a smooth stark glow to the high points of the face.

The palette as said above comes in the regular ABH packaging with 6 pans with 0.16 oz in each pan and 4.5 gm in total.

ABH describes it as ” Metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity , complementing shades can be layered together to brighten cheekbones or worn separately on eyelids , brow bones and inner corners.”

I personally love the formula and use it almost everytime as inner corner highlight and to amp up my lid eyeshadow to another level of luminosity.

They are not lying when they say it’s metallic! Coz girl is a total game changer.

coming to what’s inside the palette ,

The shades are :

Kitty Kat : A medium peachy pink with warm toned shimmers and very minute glitter particles that are finely milled and not obnoxiously glittery.
This one in particular won’t pop up as much on very pale undertones but might look noticeable and get the job done on medium skin tones pretty well. It’s a pink based highlighter and is a stronger version of MAC’s extra dimension skin finish in Beaming Blush.

Forever Young : It is the more beige version of Kitty Kat and tends to be more warm toned and versatile for many skin tones. It has a metallic finish and is best applied with a denser brush rather than a fan brush as it may waste your product due to less dense brush hairs.

Daydream : It’s a very unique , never made before kind of a colour with orange tones and still very warm , keeping up with the theme of the kit itself. It looks harsh in the pan but appears subtle and dewy once blended in the skin with subtle strokes.

Forever Lit : This is one powder that would speak to paler , fairer skin tones on so many levesl! It has a beautiful white silvery sheen that is not obnoxiously glittery but shows up bright and loud on the skin. It is pretty cool toned and has whiter undertones as opposed to other colours in the palette. This one is the most reflective due to the nature of the colour.

Glo Getter: This one is a true gold bronze highlighter with warm undertones and very shimmery metallic finish. It is well suited for medium skin tones and above, which is great and makes the kit versatile for different undertones and skin colours.

143 : This color is special to Nicole herself and is a dark copper gold with the same amount of opacity and sheen with metallic finish to it. It is best suited for medium to dark skin tones.

The kit retails for $65 AUD here in Australia on Sephora’s website and was also sold on Anastasia Beverly Hill’s website. It seems a fair price for 6 full size highlighter pans and the cost breakdown makes it AUD 10.8 each pan , which is a great price for the quality of the product.
Encased in a beautiful rosey-pink high shine gleamy ABH packaging , it lacks a mirror but is lightweight which would make a strong case for travel friendly makeup , but I wouldn’t recommend travelling with this baby owing to the nature of the product that makes it fragile and it can be a hot mess if not taken care of!

The shade ranges have a lot to offer for every possible skin tone and the opacity and glimmer of the powders can be seen from outer space. You get my point.

Because it is so high shine with a cream finish , my dry skin fell in love with it , with every use.
I have light-medium skin with very warm undertones and except for Daydream , all the shades show up on my skin pretty well. The 2 gold shades remind me of my favourite MAC highlighters , but instead , are the on-steroid version of MAC Soft And Gentle and Oh!Darling. The ABH formulas are creamier and more workable but are not for the faint hearted!

These are for the glow goddesses that want a pop of blinding highlight! As a last suggestion about the product , if you’re a subtle barely there highlight person , this might not be your girl. On that note , I prefer a more visible stark sheen on the tops of my cheeks and Kitty Kat , my favourite shade out of the kit is perfect and has rose gold shine particles to add the extra oomph! That being said , shades subject to personal preferences but this one in particular is a versatile palette , well thought of and beautifully put together! S/O to Nicole G for the pink dreamy box of glow.
