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.
Are you planning on getting this palette?
