Anastasia Beverly Hills Sweets Glow Kit

Hi everyone! This is another one of those posts that I get so excited to write because I'm so obsessed with this product! I'd seen the ABH Glow Kits floating around online for so long, I originally wanted one of the first two which were Gleam and That Glow, however I was saving up at the time and had so many highlighters so I couldn't justify it and eventually they went out of stock and it was then announced they were limited edition and wouldn't be coming back. So when I was on holiday shopping I had a look in many different Sephoras' and no luck, the only glow kit they had in stock was the new one, the Ultimate Glow Kit but I wasn't too keen on it, I just thought it was far too glittery and chunky so I decided against it. However Matty's sister came up to me on holiday and said "look what I just bought" and I went all crazy like "WHERE DID YOU GET THAT" and Macys actually had some Glow Kits in, in Sweets which made me so happy! As I'm writing this post there is some in stock on the ABH website so if you wanted to get it shipped internationally then you still could.


I can't deal with how pretty this palette is, you get four metallic powder highlighters and I love this so much because the shades are all so different. Plus the packaging is so gorgeous, probably one of my favourite packaging on any of the palettes I own.


I'm so obsessed with the sparkly box it comes in, plus the size of this isn't too crazy considering how big the pans are inside, The four shades you get are:

- Marshmallow. Intense pear with gold reflect. 
- Sassy Grape. Lavender with blue reflect.
- Butterscotch. Gold with white reflect.
- Taffy. A fusion of peach, pink and gold reflect.






Marshmallow, Sassy Grape, Butterscotch, Taffy

I can't get over how obsessed I am with this palette, it's such good quality and the highlighters, compared to some I've used before from palettes show up so well on the skin. Out of the four the one I probably won't really use is Sassy Grape, I'm at that awkward point where I'm not tanned but I'm also not the right shade to wear a highlighter with any pink tones to it, however my favourites are definitely Marshmallow and Butterscotch. Taffy I would wear on holiday when I was tanned it would look so pretty then, when I got this I thought straight away that Butterscotch would be the one I loved the most, just because it's similar to what I typically go for but I was surprised at how nice Marshmallow. I go between the two depending on what mood I'm in, I think for my skin tone at the minute Butterscotch is better for day time use, whereas Marshmallow is so good for when I want my highlight to really stand out. 

The one issue I have with this palette is that there is a lot of fall out, it can be quite messy with powder going all over inside the palette, it's not that much that I feel like it's wasting product, it just messes up the box it comes in. These are also far more glittery than I am used to with highlighters, not necessarily a bad thing it's just really different for me. I bought this for $40 which obviously isn't cheap, however considering you get four different shades, all a really good size as well it's not that bad and the quality is so worth it! Let me know in the comments if you've tried a Glow Kit and what you think!

  6. I'm so pale at all times that I probably wouldn't get much use out of these highlighters! That said, it's such a shame because they swatch so beautifully!

  12. Wow, the pigmentation is too good! No wonder everyone is raving about Anastasia. I have one of their liquid lipsticks and I am in-love. I wear it (almost) everyday and never get tired of its color. Now I am considering getting this palette as well. The colors are just too gorgeous!

  24. Butterscotch is a gorgeous colour! Sounds like you had a lucky escape with the Ultimate Glow Kit as a lot of people seem to me saying it's glittery and not as good quality-wise as the others
