Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit Review + Swatches

If you’re looking for a palette full of well-crafted highlighters with different tones, well, look no further because this Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills ($40) might just be the answer you’re looking for, especially if you’re crazy over highlighters nowadays.

I’ve reviewed several highlighters here in the blog, some of them are in kits or palettes, while some are in one single compact. Some are even in liquid or stick forms which I will be comparing with this ABH Glow Kit later on this post. While it’s nice to have everything in one single compact that contains a blush, a contour, and a highlighter shade, this Anastasia Glow Kit is quite different. It has 4 highlighters in one single kit or palette, which I think is made especially for those who just can’t get enough of highlighters and for those who need a highlighter that truly matches their complexion.

Depending on your skin tone, some highlighters may overemphasize or underemphasize your features. Some may even make you glow too much like a flashlight. There are even some shades that just don’t show up on your skin. So with 4 highlighters in one palette? I’m all up for it.

Bronzed – This is a shimmery bronze-gold that can work as a bronzer or as a golden highlighter for different skin tones, but I think this is specially meant for medium to dark skin tones as well. This is really shimmery and if you wanna look super gilded like the queen of the Nile, then this one’s for you.

 

Summer – A pearly-gold shimmer for those with lighter complexions. This really highlights your cheekbones and all the bony prominences of your face.

 

Tourmaline – A rosy shimmer that’s a bit similar to Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. I love this shade because it’s not too bright and not dark for a highlighter. A great complement to any light-medium skin tones.

 

Moonstone – This is a blend of peachy-pearl-golden shimmer that appeared to be very similar to the Summer shade once applied on my light-medium skin. In fact, it’s hard for me to tell the difference between the two. The difference between them is very subtle, but this is for sure a better option for those with light to medium complexion if you’re looking to level up your highlighter shade but doesn’t want a pure pearly shimmer on your face.

 

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit review

These highlighters are well-pigmented and they’re really shimmery. You can layer them for sure, but I find that just a single swipe of a fan brush or a finger will already give an instant glow. They’re easy to blend, so that’s a big plus, but I find that they’re a bit more shimmery when compared to Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors (reviewed HERE), yet they’re also as finely-milled and soft.

I definitely like all the four shades in this ABH Sun Dipped Glow Kit and I noticed that there’s really not a lot of fallouts, and if there is, it’s almost unnoticeable. Compared to some other popular highlighting palettes out there, like the Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette (reviewed HERE), well, even though that’s a different kind of story because that’s more like an all-in-one highlight/contour/blush palette, I feel like this is such a contender. This is great for traveling or just something to have around that’s easy to reach all the time, and with 4 choices of shades, you can’t really go wrong. When it comes to stick or liquid highlighters, well, there’s a lot of good stick highlighters out there that delivers smooth natural highlighting effects like Benefit’s Watt’s Up!, Trestique’s Highlight & Perfect Multipurpose Stick (seen HERE), or Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow (reviewed HERE), but still this ABH Glow Kit in Sun Dipped is very practical, convenient, and worth the money. Overall, the formulation is superb, the shades are wearable, versatile, and they make you glow beautifully.

 

The ABH Sun Dipped Glow Kit is available at Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s, and Dillard’s

 

It’s almost weekend, Yey!

Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Matte, Bronze + Glow Review & Swatches

What’s Up There Guys! If you’re following my Instagram, you’d see that I’ve posted a few upcoming sneak peeks of products that will be reviewed soon. Some of them are these Nudestix All Over Face Color Matte and the All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow (0.25 oz for $30).

I’ve always wanted to try these face color sticks since they seem to be really practical to have, especially when I’m traveling and I love that these are so easy to apply because they’re basically just swipe and go. I also love that these come with a brush on the other end for that even application and it eliminates the need to use your fingers, thus making it more hygienic and mess-free.

These Nudestix All Over Face Colors also come in a cute multi-purpose rectangular tin can for easy storage or as carrying case. The top lid even has a mirror in it. The sticks themselves are in a chubby and robust packaging. The brushes that are attached on the other side of the sticks are dense and compact. The Nudies All Over Face Color Mattes have flat rounded brushes that are great for blending the colors on the face either as a blush or as an all-over contour. While the Nudies All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow have angled brushes that define the curves of the face for highlighting or bronzing.

Naughty N’ SpiceDusty Rose Nude. This is a creamy blush that is well-pigmented at one swipe. I love the mauve rose tone of this and it spreads easily on the cheeks using the brush on the other end.

 

Bondi BaeBronzed Nude. I use this for contouring and it gives a subtle contour on the face. It’s also creamy, pigmented, and it blends easily. Love the pure matte and mid-tone brown hue of this.

 

The brushes of these two Face Color Mattes are nice add-ons, and they’re easy to work around the face. They’re also somewhat a bit softer than the angled-brushes of the All Over Face Color Bronze + Glow.

Hey, HoneyGolden Sun-Kiss. A great color as a bronzer or as a highlighter for the lips, cheeks, bridge of the nose, or around the eyes. This has a nice golden subtle shimmer that feels very lightweight and has a very natural effect. It feels a bit oily more than creamy and it can be layered for a dramatic glow.

 

Illumi-NaughtyPop of Pearl. This has a subtle dewy finish but can also be layered and it blends easily using its angled brush on the other end. It also feels a bit oily and has a nice soft shimmer to it.

 

These Bronze + Glow Face Colors have a somewhat oily consistency instead of being creamy like the All Over Face Color Mattes, though they glide very well on the cheeks. Their brushes feel kinda stiff at the beginning which therefore has a tendency to move your foundation around, especially if you’re kinda heavy-handed. I suggest doing a stipple application and be light-handed in order to prevent this.

Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Color Matte, Bronze + Glow Review

 

These Nudestix All Over Face Color Matte and Bronze + Glow are handy and portable even though their brushes might be a bit stiff and that they feel kinda sticky on the face right after application. They give a natural glow on the face, but they can also be layered for a more dramatic look and they’re pretty much easy to blend. They’re also multi-purpose which makes them the ideal travel companions.
