[productsample/affiliate] We’re heading into ‘glow season’ like it or not (I like it) so expect an influx of glowy things. Starting with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit which I haven’t seen before (but am not sure if it’s new).
This particular set is best for those with a warm or deep tone either naturally or from the sun. Even the lightest shade, Summer, has a peachy aspect to it so it’s not for anyone who needs pink or blue tones.
The thing with highlight powders is that they usually all look the same at first glance, but don’t necessarily perform the same. To my mind, these have a lot of oil in them (you can smell it if you get your nose right in there) but that does make for a very smooth and glowy finish. They’re velvety to the touch and diffuse on the skin extremely nicely – that seamless gleam that everyone wants is achievable with this and a decent brush.
The bottom line is that highlighters, particularly powder formulas, are one of the most available beauty products around. They’re absolutely everywhere so you’d want to think about whether paying £41 HERE for this is getting you more than mainstream. I completely accept that anyone’s beauty budget is their business and not mine, and for some, ordering and knowing you’re getting something reliably good is more than worth it – for others it won’t be. My personal view on this is that it’s above average for the genre, satisfyingly gleamy and strong colours that you don’t see as often (such as Tourmaline). In the swatch above it’s (bottom to top) Summer, Moonstone, Tourmaline and Bronzed. The one thing I would say is that they don’t swatch on the skin the same colours they look in the pan.
