I am in love with these Glow Kits (click here to buy). These are sold at Sephora, ABH website and wherever ABH is sold. They retail for $40 (USD) for each kit and come in two different editions, GLEAM and THAT GLOW. GLEAM appears to be more cool toned and THAT GLOW, warmer tones.
Initially, I thought they were a bit pricey, but now I think that they are well worth the money. The pans are bigger than I had expected. Each pan has 0.26 oz of product compared to their individual highlighters which are $28 for 0.32 oz of product. You’re basically paying $10 for a full sized highlighter. These are the descriptions of each shade as per Anastasia Beverly Hills website:
Sunburst – Bright, luminous gold with a metallic finish
Golden Bronze – Sultry, warm bronze with a gold-flecked finish
Bubbly – Rose champagne with a pearlescent finish
Dripping in Gold – Lavish gold with a vivid, reflective finish
The THAT GLOW kit in my opinion, is the better option of the two kits because they offer a wider range of colors from an opal to bronze to champagne to a true gold.
For a Makeup Artist, this is really a great deal especially when you compare it to similar highlighters like Becca Cosmetics which are $38 for 0.25 oz of product. Clearly, this is a steal.
Here are the swatches on my skin tone (NC44-45):
- More product for your buck
- MUA friendly
- Highly pigmented
- Wide range of colors
- The consistency is smooth and not chalky
- Works with almost any skin tone
- Easy to carry around
- Packing is really impressive
- Individual pans are not sold separately, so if you run out of one you may have to buy another kit
- Bubbly and Dripping Gold can look relatively similar (although they are not)
- May not be as affordable as getting their individual highlighters (So Hollywood, Rivera…)
