Sorry things have been a bit quiet, I have a load of products I want to write about but it’s been a completely rubbish week. As you might have seen on my social channels, Bella, one of our cats died this week and whilst I know that’s the heart wrenching nature of having pets, it still sucks massively.
In an attempt to distract myself, I thought I would interrupt my planned schedule to rave about one of my holy grail products, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glowkit which I have in Gleam.
Last month I gave one of these away in a giveaway, which actually ended up being won by Rachel who happens to be an IRL -is that still a thing? Feels very 00s MSN- friend as well as a blogger. I promise it wasn’t a fix and we’re not in some sort of highlighter cartel, I used Rafflecopter but I kind of love it as it means I can witness the glow in person.
One thing I love about this palette is the fact the shades actually work for all skintones (for once). I myself being pretty pale favour crushed pearl the most, it’s the only shade I can wear on it’s own but I typically like to drag my brush across all shades ending with crushed pearl for a slightly warmer tone.
As it’s about 493923492304 degrees in Wales at the moment -a pretty rare occurrence- I’ve got myself some semblance of a tan so have been loving wearing Mimosa on it’s own and pairing with orange toned nude lipsticks.
As you would expect from ABH these are all very pigmented and I would go as far as saying this is my all time favourite powder highlighter.
I wear it across my cheek bones, temples, cupids bow and nose tip, applying straight after foundation -quite roughly- with a fan brush. The warmer toned That Glow is likely going to be finding it’s way into my life soon and I’m desperate to get my hands on the new Sundipped version, despite reading numerous reviews that it’s probably not going to work for my skintone … My name’s Amy and I’m a highlight addict.
