Highlighters are such a big deal right now and I seriously love it. Out of all the trends that have come and gone recently, having a popping highlight is hands down my favourite and I don't think if it ever ended I'd be able to walk away from it. Anastasia Beverly Hills recently released a gorgeous new product in the form of Glow Kits, which are absolutely fabulous highlighter palettes containing four unique luminizers. Seriously, as if her original highlighters weren't stunning enough, I was so so excited to try one of these palettes. There are two available; Gleam and That Glow, of the two I opted for buying That Glow as I was more drawn to the gold and champagne highlighting hues (like a moth to a flame) than the bright white and rose ones in Gleam.

Upon setting my eyes upon the gorgeous glow kit for the first time I was not disappointed, it definitely wasn't a "you look better on Instagram" moment. I'm overly obsessed with the sleek nude and gold packaging and the highlighters inside the palette are equally as jaw dropping. In the kit you get four different highlighters, and I was honestly surprised about how large each of them are- a lot of brands are a bit cheeky when it comes to palettes and they tend to downsize the products (MAC Times Nine I'm looking at you), but each of the highlighters are generously and rather gorgeously large, which I was very happy to see when I first opened this beauty.

Top to bottom- Sunburst, Golden Bronze, Bubbly and Dripping in Gold

The four luminizers in the That Glow kit are Sunburst, Golden Bronze, Bubbly and Dripping in Gold. The palette graduates from a light champagne gold to an intense, bronze gold Golden Bronze being the darkest and Sunburst being the lightest. Even though all the highlighters are some sort of variation of gold, they each have different undertones which make them unique and also suitable for an array of different skin tones. I also love to mix the shades together to create a combination of them if I fancy it. The possibilities are pretty much endless with this palette which I love; you are guaranteed a gorgeous highlight every time. At some point in my life I would definitely love to get the Gleam Glow Kit to have the full spectrum of highlight at my fingertips, but That Glow Kit will most definitely keep me going until that day comes.

In terms of the formula, they are actually fairly different to Anastasia Beverly Hills' other highlighters. These have slightly more of a power looking finish rather than wet, dewy one like Anastasia's other highlighters- they're more like texture of MAC's Soft and Gentle. I personally don't like either finish any more than the other, if any finish is too power-y it's nothing a little Fix Plus can't rectify, so it's honestly no bother to me that it's different to her other highlighters; I still love it a lot. I do find this formula to be more buildable than her single highlighters, which if you're a glow obsessive like me is absolutely perfect. It pretty much goes without saying that the pigmentation of these highlighters is phenomenal, one swipe leaves you with a stunning glow but like I said, if you do want to build on the brightness, just keep layering the product until it's as pigmented as you want. The longevity of the formula is also very impressive and it doesn't lose any of it's glow throughout the day, ideal for if you know you're got a long day, night or if you just don't want to worry about touch ups!

This review is coming at exactly the right time because both of Anastasia's beautiful highlighter kits are now available to buy in the UK- yay! I was way too impatient and got mine shipped from the States when they were first released, so if you're reading this in the UK you'll be pleased to know that you can now easily get your hands on this from either Cult Beauty or Beauty Bay and retail at £39.

  3. These look stunning! I'm so tempted to try them, I love when a highlighter is super pigmented but still gives you the option of making it stronger, and if it stays all day long is perfect! Where did you get yours? From the ABH website? :) I want to try their eyeshadows but I can't find them in the UK stockists! xx
