Anastasia Bevelery Hills’ Glow Kits have been EVERYWHERE on Instagram and YouTube beauty channels for quite some time. As ever, the majority of these highlighting products are not a suitable shade for my milk-white skin tone. Golds and bronzes just don’t work on me! But when the Moon Child kit launched a few months ago, I wondered if this might finally be a Glow Kit I could work with. When the time rolled around to do my birthday beauty haul (Part 1 and Part 2), this palette was my number one priority.
The palette contains 6 shimmery highlight shades, some of which are pretty unusual compared to the range of highlight shades currently on the market. The palette itself doesn’t have a mirror which is a bit of a shame in my opinion. The packaging is pretty but doesn’t feel particularly sturdy as it’s cardboard rather than plastic or faux metal. To be honest I’d have preferred a more solid feeling palette with a mirror from a product in this price range.
I have fallen in love with the highlights themselves. The shades appear quite muted in the pan but when you start swatching them, their true colours shines out! You might think that these colours would be hard to use in an every day sense but it is actually possible to use them without going to Instagram-worthy extremes (as gorgeous as the photos are of stripes of highlight that can be seen glinting miles away, they can be a bit much for day time in IRL!). These powders are easy to blend and mix together to get the look you’re after.
At this stage it’s too early in my love affair with the Moon Child kit to choose a favourite shade, but for quick and easy every day look Pink Heart is the easiest to use. Star can also be used with a light hand for day time looks; to be honest they all can with a little blending. When I’m well enough to being going out in the evening again, I’ll definitely be incorporating Blue Ice and Purple Horseshoe into a shimmery highlight and eye look. Lucky Clover is also a really interesting colour with more green & yellow going on than you’d expect from looking at it in the pan.
Overall I’m really happy with this palette; it’s a joy to behold. While the packaging and design of the palette could have been a bit better, I really like the products themselves. It’s a really unusual collection of shades and I’m looking forward to playing with them more as my Chronic Life allows.
What do you think of the ABH Glow Kits?
