Anastasia Beverley Hills – The GLOW KIT

img_1471

I did it, I finally got my hands on one of the most precious highlighting palettes the internet has seen! The first time I set my sights on one of these Anastasia Beverley Hills Glow Kits was during one of Jaclyn Hills beautiful makeup tutorials on youtube, she is such a babe! I watched as Jaclyn applied the most shimmery, on fleek highlight I’d ever seen and thats when I knew I needed it!

***

I’d heard peoples stories about their glow kits arriving smashed so I’d started having a mental breakdown whilst trying not to panic about the state mine would be in when it arrived! The day came, I was handed a package that I hoped was my glow kit, I ran to the kitchen ripped it open and to my absolute relief there it was all in tact!! My face lit up, I was beaming. I know, you’re thinking ‘get a grip girl its only makeup’, but its so much more than just makeup, this palette is the MOTHER of all highlighters!

I chose the Gleam palette as it has this iridescent shade thats so majestic and beautiful I just had to have it! The other shades are equality as stunning, I’m not let down with this palette at all. What I love about these highlights is that you can go as bold or as subtle as you want, they sit really nicely on the skin and they are so easy to apply! I like to really shimmer up on a night out and these are perfect for enabling me to do that, by the end of the night my highlight is still looking great without a need to reapply, I love that!

Highlight takes your makeup game from 10-100 real fast and with strobing becoming a new trend these are whats hot right now, although I can’t ever see these eventually becoming less popular and growing dust on a shelf somewhere! This will always be a staple in my ever growing makeup collection thats for sure!

‘Hard Candy’ is the Iridescent shade I mentioned, if you turn your palette to a certain angle you can just see it. Its beautiful on the skin. I’m always babbling on about how I’m this mythical, magical mermaid, this shade confirms it! Haha!

‘Mimosa’ is an intense, deep gold coloured highlight. I haven’t been brave enough to wear this one out yet but I also imagine it would look amazing on tanned and darker skin tones!

‘Starburst’ is a light pink shade that looks gorgeous on! With this shade its really easy to be subtle but on building it looks great too.

‘Crushed Pearl’ is the lightest shade. It has an icey feel to it on the skin this one its a fave of mine. I wear this one most days & always feel super confident with it on!

If you have me on Twitterย you’ll remember how excited I was when my glow kit arrived! I’m a mum of two so its not everyday that I get to treat myself but I’m so glad I did with this!

Is it worth it? Yes, yes, a million times yes!

ย (Yes that was a pride and prejudice quote haha!)

    • cheskaaanels September 9, 2016 / 10:54 pm

      Hahaha awesome!! I’m glad your gf was able to appreciate it! Xox

  9. Elizabeth O. September 10, 2016 / 3:15 am

    I know very little about highlighters but I’m glad you found the right product for you! I think it’s awesome and the packaging is great as well.

  10. La French Connection (@ConnectionLa) September 10, 2016 / 4:27 pm

    Oooooh… I love highlighters! That palette looks very cool. Lucky you got it in one piece, I can imagine that it would have been pretty disappointing.
    I’ve never tried that brand. I keep hearing about it but never got to try it (because I don’t order online as I need to try the product first). I’d like to have a chance to try it out someday though.

      Yeah that would be great to try before you buy actually!! This one really is great you can see it being used on youtube a lot!

  11. Tanya September 10, 2016 / 5:10 pm

    That just looks insanely beautiful. Starburst is definitely my favourite shade, I need this is my life!

    • cheskaaanels September 10, 2016 / 6:08 pm

      Isn’t it!? I’m so glad someone else sees what I see haha!

  12. Kacie Morgan September 10, 2016 / 6:41 pm

    I really like the look of this. I have been thinking of buying a new blusher/bronzer palette recently and this seems like it would be ideal.

  13. DecoPix (@TiinaTibs) September 10, 2016 / 7:52 pm

  14. flowerpowerlife September 10, 2016 / 10:49 pm

    I really need to get into highlighters as I haven’t a clue at the moment

  15. Daisy Crawford September 10, 2016 / 11:14 pm

    I love that brand Anastasia! I have her eyebrow pencils and clear brown pen. This highlight palette looks cool!

    I have never heard of a glow kit before, but it sounds like something I need as I am far from glowing at the moment.

    • cheskaaanels September 12, 2016 / 6:23 pm

      Hahaha a little pick me up! Honestly it makes you feel like a goddess!

  36. Ana De Jesus September 12, 2016 / 11:12 pm

    I am yet to try any of their products but I have always wanted to and Hard Candy looks lush.

  37. Liz Mays September 13, 2016 / 12:29 am

    Oh these would be a lot of fun to experiment with. The shimmering shades sound so nice.

  38. secretplussizegoddessblog September 13, 2016 / 10:57 am

    OMG love how beautiful this palette is. The shades are all so wearable! xxx

  40. Nicola Murdock September 15, 2016 / 1:58 pm

    Oh those look like they will be utterly stunning on you! I have a few and my favourite is my Kevyn Aucion which gives me a very subtle healthy highlight.

  41. Amanda-Jaied Wathern September 15, 2016 / 3:31 pm

    Oh my it’s so pretty! I am actually obsessed with good highlight and regularly whack on enough to guide ships into port, but I’ve unbelievably never tried ABH. I’m a Sleek Solstice and Estee Edit Flash Illuminator kind of girl (you need this by the way). Might just have to try this bad boy out though! x

    • cheskaaanels September 15, 2016 / 4:40 pm

      I actually want to try those!!! Next on my list!! Hahaha glad to know you’re a girl after my own heart! Highlight is the way!

  42. fashionmommywm September 16, 2016 / 12:27 pm

    The colours look so dewy and pretty, I really like these.

  43. Amelia Larsen September 16, 2016 / 6:24 pm

    Oh wow, this looks gorgeous! I’ve been eyeing up the sun dipped version for myself.
