While I kind of always wanted to believe in Anastasia Beverly Hills as a brow brand only, they have proved me wrong with this beauty of a palette. Lately, I am even more about the glow than usual. Maybe thanks to being exhausted from Daylight Savings Time (hate) and a rude, late winter cold (hate more).
I’ll be up front from the start: Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit highlighters are very metallic. Not glittery but highly luminous. So if you are looking for something more subtle, these might not be for you. That being said, they are still refined enough for work. And look fabulous on the weekend with some extra layers. They also make for beautiful eyeshadows.
These six flowers have an ultra-fine formula that work on the face and body. I like to use them with a powder brush, but they have a deepened effect with a damp makeup sponge. The shades are:
- Kitty Kat (pink with a platinum shimmer)
- Daydream (coral with white gold shimmer)
- Forever Young (pink pearl with silver shimmer)
- Forever Lit (platinum with lavender shimmer)
- Glo Getter (champagne with rose shimmer)
- 143 (rose gold with bronze shimmer)
The Kitty Kat looks great on brown bones and collar bones. The champagne adds a beautiful glow to cheek bones. And 143 adds a healthy glow to sallow skin with a light, all over application.
Available at Sephora.
I’ve been a bad little blogger keeping a fabulous eye shadow palette a secret from you. One of my favorite brands, Anastasia Beverly Hills, launched two palettes recently that have thrilled my little beauty world. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that the first launch, the Amrezy Palette inspired by Amra Olevic, is no longer available. There are some options on eBay, but that is about it. Correction: great news! The palette is still available on anastasiabeverlyhills.com!
Now for the good news… the second palette, Maya Mia is still available at Sephora and it is even better than the first. Created in collaboration with Maya Janeska (a hugely popular beauty blogger), these 10 shades are so incredibly wearable – from fun and adventurous to perfect everyday shades.
The powders can be worn wet or dry although I prefer dry. I get intense payoff with little fall out. And they are long-wearing. The pots are slightly small, but workable with a medium sized blending brush.
The Warm Taupe (second from right, top row) and Glisten (middle bottom row) have become everyday staples for me. Deep Brown (second from left, top row) is perfect for a more dramatic look. Gold Bar (far right, bottom row) works well in the corner of the eyes. And Sienna (middle top row) surprised me as a fabulous crease shade.
Think of this palette as a more adventurous neautral palette. The included brush is super high quality compared to other palettes. And the “Get The Look” enclosed flash cards inspire creativity in looks. Bottom line: it is a “buy”!
Available at Nordstrom and Sephora. This palette is limited edition, so snap it up quickly!
