Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit

No comments :
I think it's safe to say the Aurora Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills is my favorite one yet! This baby is GORGEOUS!

At first glance, the colors may seem a little intimidating, especially to those who aren't used to colorful highlighters.
I'll admit, I wasn't totally convinced that I would use this much once I got my hands on it. However, as you'll see in the swatches, these colors are a lot more wearable than you might think!

The first time I opened the palette, I saw chunky glitter in almost all of the shades and just thought to myself, "Oh no." I'm not a huge fan of big glitter in highlighters. It seems as though it's either an overspray on them or it's just a glitter that kind of melts into everything, because I was shocked when I actually swatched and started using them! They are so buttery smooth and just shimmery - no chunky glitter. 

Eclipse is a pale peach with a pink duochrome:

Luna is a metallic off-white. This one is hard to explain because it's not pure white, but it looks whiter on the skin than it does in the pan.

Spectra is a grayish lavender with a pink duochrome:

Helia is a white gold:

Orion is a bright blue - I don't want to call it a "pastel," but it's pale enough that it gives it an icy tone.

And Lyra is a golden peach with a pink shift:

So as you can see from the swatches, the colors are a lot more wearable than they appear to be in the pan! The Orion one is a little TOO blue for me to use as a highlighter, but it makes a great eyeshadow. As a matter of fact, ALL of these shades are great shadows. The formula on the Anastasia highlighters has always impressed me, as they're super smooth and blendable. I like that you can mix any of the colors with the Luna color to lighten them if you need to. That makes this whole palette extremely versatile and makes me love it that much more! Huge thumbs up from me!

It is available now at Anastasia Beverly Hills.
