Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit "That Glow" Palette


I have several incredible powder highlighters in my collection at the moment, ranging in every shade imaginable from champagne to light lavender, rose, gold, rose-gold, bronze etc. Highlighting is the highlight of every single makeup routine I do, pun intended. But that's the reason they dominate my collection in quantity.  The one I wear most from this "That Glow" Glow Kit palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills would be that yellow looking one called "Sunburst" and as mentioned in my most recent favorites video, it is the one and only highlight I can think of that I can wear any time, anywhere, with any makeup look, during any season of the year and it always stunning and totally "lit". Yass I went there!

This specific palette seems to be out of stock now, I didn't know it was limited edition when I purchased it. But after doing alot of research online, I've noticed that there is one variation that seems to be permanent both on the Anastasia website as well as at Sephora and Ulta, that being the "Sun Dipped" one which is quite beautiful as well.  The brand also comes out with some limited edition collaboration versions from time to time. The Nicole Guerriero one in particular is one I wouldn't have minded getting my paws on. Also, because these powders can be removed and switched out easily you could pick others to refill the palette with once one runs out, Sephora in particular offers the contour kit refills in the satin finish and those look really pretty. I'm realizing that I probably won't be able to find refills of "Sunburst" which is quite the disappointment as I've never seen a highlight suit my skin tone and undertone more perfectly. Don't get me wrong, the other shades in this palette are quite beautiful as well, I've just been sticking with that one for the most part since purchasing it.

The payoff on these shimmery powders are simply ridiculously gorgeous and they pick up effortlessly and apply so smoothly and easily. Even though they are boldly pigmented and very soft in consistency, they don't kick up a ton of powder fallout everywhere. I'll admit that "dripping in gold" and "bubbly" are extremely similar shades of rose gold and the bronze shade is not one I wear very often at all. Also, sunburst appears so yellow in pan but it's much more of a champagne ivory on the skin. I'm happy I picked this palette out when I did, but I really think I'd have to switch out at least two shades to have this be worth it's $40 price tag. Also, I tend to use my Morphe Brushes M558 Mini Detail Fan Brush to apply my highlight powders to my cheek bone, spritzing it with a bit of Fix+ spray from Mac before dipping into the powder to create a really bright and bold look. These powders pair particularly well with that brush and spray both. My recommendation to you would be, to grab a Anastasia highlight palette for yourself as soon as she brings one out but just be sure to check out the swatches first to be sure you love every color first. The Anastasia powders are generally an absolute pleasure to work with. But hey, I seem to like every product they come out with lately so all in all this is a pretty solid brand all around. 





Have you given any of these Anastasia Highlighting Palettes a try? If you have, do you like the shades? If you haven't, would you want to give them a go?
