Anastasia Beverly Hills | Ultimate Glow Kit – First Impression and Swatches

Greetings beautiful readers! I’m so excited to blog about this considering that this is a limited edition item and I actually got my hands on this one! Leeshy went shopping – she came out and she conquered☺

This also happens to be my first ABH product purchased! This product has a lot of mixed reviews on Sephora and understandably considering that apparently the formulation is different than previous glow kits.

I swatched the palette in store and absolutely loved the colours! They felt and feel very buttery, they’re decently pigmented and blend out easily (on the hand) – I still need to try these highlighters on my face and see how well they perform. I noticed that I had to swipe many times to get a good amount of product for a good swatch – either that or i’m heavy handed with highlighter and want to see a layer of it on my finger before swatching 🙂 This seems like the type of highlighter that is easy to control – buildable to the level of luminosity that you want (for me i’ll take the highest level please) At the store, it seemed as though there was fall out but that could be from customers vigorously swatching the palette, I didn’t have any fall out with my palette while swatching.

When I picked up this palette, the VIB sale happened to be on, so i ended up saving 20% on my purchase – you know I love discounts ☺☺☺☺ As you may or may not know, I reside in Canada so this palette retails for $59.00 CDN here. I received my discount, used the remainder of a Sephora gift card (thank you Mother and god bless you), and ended up paying $21.14 for this palette… Excuse me for a moment while I sit in my empty bathtub and cry for joy 😥 The colours are absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait to see how they look on a full face of glam! 

Some Deets:

Okay so this is some information that I don’t always find myself when I would look for product reviews, and think will be useful for you lovely mortals ♥

I totally got “the plug” 🔌🔌 and they hooked me up and…. well.. no, not at all…”Leeeeesh..let’s not lie“….. OK so I actually had to call around to different Sephoras, and once one location told me that they had it in stock, I asked them in desperation to hold it for me (for dear life if possible) LOL. Were you guys able to get your hands on one? Do you love it or hate it? Let me know! I may edit in some cheek swatches once I play with them ☺ Okay lovelies, i’m off to scavenge for some more goodies….We’ll catch up next Monday.. or sooner 😉

Edit: I made a video on the palette as well – live swatches 😉
