Anastasia Beverly Hills recently released two new Glow Kits.  I purchased the "Gleam" palette which is more flattering on fair complexions, where as "That Glow" would be more flattering on darker complexions.

Gleam comes with four highlighters: Hard Candy, Mimosa, Starburst and Crushed Pearl.  Each can be removed and replaced when you run out.  They come cased in a silver cardboard palette.

To give you a size reference compared to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.

I popped a pan out of the Contour Kit to show that the highlighter shades are much larger, also much creamier!

These powders are very finely milled-- very easy to blend together if you are interested in wearing more than one at a time.  These metallic powder highlighters are perfect to create a glowing, radiant look!

I want to address the obvious elephant in the room.  Why is the palette broken?  Great question!  I ordered it when it was released from Sephora because I mean... look at it.  It arrived poorly packaged. When I opened it it was a total mess!  What you see in this post is my attempt to press it back together.  At first Sephora offered me my choice of a refund or for them to ship another palette.  I opted for another palette because that's why I ordered it.  Anyways they then came back to me to let me know that since I was Canadian that they couldn't ship me another one and I had to get a refund. And then to make it better they offered me some points.  I was really annoyed because somehow they managed to ship me one when I paid for it...but when it arrives damaged on their end they can't?  I probably will not order another once since they did not ask for me to ship it back, but it really is a mess to use and results in major fall out.  Sephora, I love you.  But sometimes...

Based on the swatches I know that I would wear Crushed Pearl the most.  Mimosa reminds me of BECCA's Opal and I think it would be lovely in the summer!  Starburst and Hard Candy are both a bit pink for my liking, but they appear much less pink when worn than I expected. 

My favourite of the four highlighters is Crushed Pearl.

Are you planning on getting this palette?
