Here’s a thing, I love highlighter. I’m all for the glow and a light dusting all over the face is part of my daily routine. I have a lot of highlighters in my collection but I am always drawn to the shimmering powders and new launches. Whilst I was in New York last month I managed to pick up two of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits; which I have been lusting over for a while now. I desperately wanted to pick up the glow kit in Gleam, however this was out of stock everywhere (I tried Macy’s and every Sephora I came across). Sundipped was launched on the Wednesday whilst I was out in the states so it was only fitting that I picked that one up too.
Each kit includes 4 different highlighters, all with the same formula and finish. Each powder creates a lit-from-within glow to brighten and lift the skin. Each shades are designed to complement each other and can be used on the eyelids, brow bone, cheekbones, décolletage and inner corners.
That Glow includes mostly warm toned hues; Sunburst, Golden Bronze, Bubbly and Dripping in Gold. Sunburst is a pale yellow gold shimmer, Golden Bronze is a warm coppery golden bronze shimmer, Bubbly is a soft shimmering champagne and Dripping in Gold is a soft champagne gold. Bubbly and Dripping in Gold are my two favourite shades from the That Glow kit, however I have a lot of shades that are similar, champagne pop by Becca is almost identical to Dripping in Gold. I love to apply Golden Bronze over the top of my bronzer for an all over bronzed glow; this shade is perfect during the warmer months.
L-R: Sunburst, Golden bronze, Bubbly, Dripping in Gold
Sundipped includes a mixture of warm and cooler toned hues; Bronzed, Summer, Tourmaline and Moonstone. Bronzed is a warm shimmering bronze, Summer an ivory gold shimmer, Tourmaline mauve nude and Moonstone a peach champagne. Summer and Tourmaline are my two favourite shades from this palette. I like to mix tourmaline into my blush to add depth to my cheekbones. I use summer right on the top of my cheekbones to give a pop of extra highlight.
L-R: Bronzed, Summer, Tourmaline, Moonstone
L-R: –That glow– Sunburst, Golden bronze, Bubbly, Dripping in Gold –Sun Dipped– Bronzed, Summer, Tourmaline, Moonstone
All of the highlighters are extremely pigmented, creamy and blend-able. I defiantly have my eyes on the new sweets and moonchild glow kits; that purple highlight is so dreamy.
Both palettes are very similar in shades but I am glad that I got the chance to pick them both up. Do you really need them both? Probably not as the shade range is almost identical however if your a beauty obsessive like myself than getting them both is so necessary, right?
