Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Gleam



Since having skin drier than the Sahara, I've been getting majorly into highlighting and strobing. I've always used highlighter, but lately I've been upping my game by about 200% and have been told my skin looks radiant and glowy as a result. I find highlighter adds so much life to my skin so its now a step I now can't forego. One of my key highlighter picks is the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Gleam.

The palette houses four pretty generously sized highlighters which complement fair skin perfectly. Going from the lightest shade of Crushed Pearl to the more golden Mimosa, the shades in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit can either be worn alone or layered. I tend to use Crushed Pearl in the corner of my eyes, brow bone and cupids bow, and go all out with mixing Starburst with either Hard Candy or Mimosa for my cheekbones, temples, nose and chin. Or sometimes I use all of them if I'm really feeling it. I also like using Hard Candy as a blusher as it has such a flattering pink tone to it, and Mimosa is awesome when applied lightly as a subtle bronzer. I think it would also look gorgeous on collar bones on top of a tan. I'll have to work on a tan to test that one out though! There's certainly no shade that's a dud, that's for sure.

If you're used to using Becca highlighters you'll probably think that the shades in the Gleam Glow Kit aren't quite as pigmented, but I find that they build up really nicely and you can achieve great coverage with them. They're actually designed to give more of a lit-from-within-glow rather than to ensure your cheekbones are visible from Mars, so depending on your goal you will either love the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit or find it needs a little more layering. Personally, the colour payoff is perfect for me, and I think they show up really well on my skin.

Have you tried this or are you tempted? I've pretty much convinced myself that I need the warmer toned version of the Glow kit now too when it comes back in stock!
