Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit Review

anastasia x nicole guerriero highlighting palette swatches

Oh Anastasia, you did it again.

If you’re a makeup junkee like me, you’ve probably heard about the buzz that’s going on in the beauty world. Anastasia Beverly Hills and beauty youtuber, Nicole Guerriero came out with a collaboration highlighter palette. The palette first launched on the Sephora App and it was sold out instantly. I was able to get my hands on this baby thanks to my best friend who bought this for me for my birthday. Literally, I was beyond excited to finally see what the hype was about.

Packaging:

The palette is in a cutesy shade of pink with tiny gold and pink specks of sparkles. Although it’s made out of cardboard, it won’t rip easily.  It has a magnetic closure which I appreciate—easy for travel. The highlighter pans comes with a generous size of product. It can probably last you a year, with the size of these pans! It comes with no mirror, but that’s okay with me since I like to do my makeup in front of a vanity mirror. Overall, I think the packaging is adorable, travel-friendly, and definitely instagram worthy.

Value:

There are 6 highlighters, 0.16 oz/ 4.5 g each (in total, 0.96 oz/ 27 g) for a total of $40 for this limited edition kit. Basically you pay, $6.67 for each of the 6 highlighters. What a steal.

Wearability:

Some reviewers say that the highlighters are “too extra”. The only highlighter that I felt was a little too much for me was “Forever Lit”. This shade lives by it’s name. For me, I can never wear this shade alone but when I mix Forever Lit with the other shades, it is definitely wearable. Although all the shades are shimmery, it easily bendable and looks subtle on the cheekbones.

Shades:

The palette comes with 6 metallic highlighter shades. 2 pinky shades, 3 natural/bronze shades, and 1 platinum white shade.

Left to Right: Kitty Kat, Forever Young, Daydream, Forever Lit, Glo Getter, 143

Kitty Kat:

Pink with a platinum shimmer. I was wondering if this shade could be used as a blush, but it’s too shimmery to wear alone as a blush. However, this shade blends easily when used as a highlighter and wasn’t as harsh as I thought it would be.

Forever Young: 

Pink pearl with silver shimmer. My favorite shade out of this glow kit! Forever Young is a very subtle and easily wearable. It definitely can definitely compliment any eye look.

Daydream:

Coral with white gold shimmer. I was kind of iffy of about this shade because I thought it looks more like a blush shade rather than a highlighter. I would describe this shade as a mixture of rose gold and coral. This highlighter didn’t do much when applied on top of my blush. I didn’t see much pigmentation from it. However, it can be used as a blush topper—-meaning it adds a little shimmer on top of your blush.

Forever Lit: 

Platinum with lavender shimmer. This is my most least favorite shade out of the bunch and I most likely won’t hit pan on this one. Forever Lit definitely lives by it’s given name. I think this shade isn’t wearable alone, but if mixed with the other shades then I’m good to go. Forever Lit is a very bright shade of white and overall it looks the least unnatural to me. But hey, if you wanna go extra, then this shade is perfect for you.

Glo Getter: 

Champagne with rose shimmer. This shade looks similar to 143 but overall, it’s very wearable and gives you that bronzy look.

Rose gold with bronze shimmer. I’m a sucker for anything that’s rose gold so I think this shade would look good on anyone.

My Overall Impression:

I think the Anastasia Beverly Hills and Nicole Guerriero collaboration was amazing. They came out with a beautiful palette that’s worth your money: a generous amount of product for each pan, 6 different shades, and high quality product. All the shades glides on smoothly, blendable, and added a little shimmer that wasn’t over the top. I would recommend all you beauties to give this palette a try!
