March 30, 2017 Mayas Makeuplife 2 Comments

Hi my lovely readers, I am very excited while I write this review post, because the product I am talking about is something I really wanted to own , I waited for a month for it to arrive and I am thrilled that its finally in my hands.

Yes I am talking about the much hyped Anastasia Beverly hills glow kit in collaboration with beauty guru Nicole Guerriero. I am not a highlighter geek but this glow kit looked absolutely beautiful and irresistible so i couldn't stop myself from ordering one. It is priced 40$ on Sephora but we Pakistani beauty lovers have to pay more than that , so I had to pay 58 $ for this baby to be mine.
About the product:
What it is:
A palette with six, metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity.

What it does:
Get a smooth, even glow that lasts with the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit. Each highlighter has an ultra-fine formula that won't leave behind shimmer particles. Just layer these shades together or wear them separately on your face, eyes, and body. For even more glow, apply them with a damp makeup brush.

This palette contains:
- 6 x 0.16 oz/ 4.5 g Highlighter in Kitty Kat (pink with a platinum shimmer) Daydream (coral with white gold shimmer), Forever Young (pink pearl with silver shimmer), Forever Lit (platinum with lavender shimmer), Glo Getter (champagne with rose shimmer), 143 (rose gold with bronze shimmer)

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
These highlighters cast an instant, intense glow. Complementing shades can be layered together to brighten cheekbones and collarbones, or worn separately over eyelids, brow bones, and inner corners of the eyes.
My views:
This palette is a basically a peach toned palette, the packaging is very shiny and pretty , it comes with six highlighter shades.
143 is a mix of bronze and gold with metallic sheen
Kitty Kat is a metallic warm peachy-pink
Forever Young is a peachy beige with warm undertones and a shiny metallic finish.
Daydream is a metallic warm toned orange shade.
Forever Lit feels like a metallic white shade with some violet sheen peeking through
Glo Getter is a warm metallic copper toned shade


These highlighters are best suited to warm toned and olive skinned people because the whole palette except forever lit is warm toned. There is no doubt that this palette is absolutely stunning , it is blinding and mesmerizing from packaging to swatches, the metallic sheen is stunning and one might be very careful while wearing these highlighters in public as it may blind someone. On a serious note, I was a little disappointed with the amount of glitter in these highlighters except forever lit, because it is more build able and blend able from the rest. It is almost impossible to apply these with a fan brush, I am still trying to figure out how to use these on skin so that the glitter particles don't sit on my face so visibly. Currently I am applying these with fingers and blend into skin .These highlighters can be worn as eye shadows also , so I am pretty happy with that too. I wore daydream and kitty kat on eyes and forever lit on inner corners of eyes on a hot day these stayed on my eyes and face for about 5 hours in Pakistani heat. I am very happy and satisfied with this palette, its totally worth the price you pay for . This palette is certainly not for those people who like subtle highlighters. If someone likes theirs to be blingy and as shiny as the stars and diamonds, this palette is definitely worth buying for them, I like shiny things so I am keeping this blinding beauty very close to my heart 💜💜💜💜💜
