Today I’m bringing you my review of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit.
At first I wasn’t sure whether to buy this kit or not as the reviews of it were rather contradictory. But once I saw it discounted, I couldn’t resist.
Packaging: the palette is made of thick carton material of purple-lilac shiny color. On the front is the brand info and on the back they give the list of ingredients and product details.
The palette retailed with a thick carton package (which is so convenient while travelling) with the same information on it.
Made in PRC
Price: I bought the palette for $24 + delivery
The usual price is $40
Marshmallow: white pearl lemon-like highlighter
Glamdrop: highlighter with pink undertones. It vaguely reminds me of the Cindy-Lou manizer by theBalm. But unfortunately it arrived broken.
Butterscotch: this one has true golden undertones. If you apply too much, it’ll be visible from the orbit.
Starburst: this very color most of all reminds me of the famous Mary-Lou Manizer. These highlighters are very alike, though I guess the ABH product is more pigmented.
Texture: I won’t talk about the texture of every shade, as they are almost the same texture-wise. They are all very soft and easy to put on a brush as well as transfer on the skin. The pigmentation is great with fingertip and brush application. The only downside is the presence of rather big shimmers to every product. This is the main difference from theBalm highlighters which are very nicely milled.
Overall: I can’t say that I’m raving about this palette. On the packaging it stated Metallic Powder Highlighter and this is absolutely true, as the texture is really metallic. If you ask me to choose between theBalm and ABH, I’ll definitely opt for theBalm highlighters!!!
