Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having an awesome week. I recently picked up one of the new Glow Kits by Anastasia Beverly Hills. I bought Gleam, which is the peachy-pink Kit.
The Glow Kits consist of four 0.26-ounce powder highlighters (an ABH Illuminator is 0.32oz). So you basically get four full-size highlighters for $40! It’s a crazy good deal. The Kits offer a wide variety in shades, which make them work for a ton of different skintones, especially WOC. Not many brands make highlights that work for deeper skintones; I think it’s great that ABH took these steps to make a shade for everyone!
The Glow Kit powders are super creamy and pigmented! The texture reminds me a lot of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors, my favorite formula. Gleam offers Crushed Pearl, a pinky-silver with a crystalized finish; Starburst, cool pink with an iridescent finish; Hard Candy, a golden peach with a pink pearl duochrome finish; and Mimosa, a deep golden peach with a metallic finish.
On my skintone, Crushed Pearl and Starburst look really similar, but all the shades work really well with my skintone. Although Hard Candy and Mimosa are too dark for me to highlight with, I can use them as a blush and bronzer, respectively, or I can mix them with Crushed Pearl or Starburst to create a bunch of different shades to use. The shades are easy to control on application and apply and blend out effortlessly.
Overall, I love the Glow Kits! I think they’re a great way to try out a lot of different highlighters without breaking the bank. The formula is awesome, the color payoff is grand, and they get bonus points for being WOC-friendly.
Do you guys have either of the Glow Kits? How much do you love them? Let me know in the comments below. ❤
