Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit Review

January 24, 2018

I have wanted a Glow Kit for the longest time so I’m very excited to be writing this post! I received the Aurora Glow Kit for Christmas after having mentioning it to my mother for quite some time. Originally I had wanted the Moonchild Glow Kit and couldn’t decide between the two. They seemed to both be quite similar in terms of the colours and Moonchild was definitely the most popular one, but from what I had seen the colours in Aurora appeared to be a lot stronger which I liked. In the end my mother chose to get Aurora and I have not been disappointed. I was ecstatic when I opened it and screamed ‘I finally have a Glow Kit!’

First Impressions:

I love the packaging of this palette so much. It’s small and compact with a stunning, holographic casing that makes it feel so special. You can definitely tell from the packaging that this a high end product. Inside there are 6 metallic shades that are all equally beautiful. The pans are quite big and with how pigmented the shades are you don’t need to use a lot to get an intense glow. Some of the colours are quite bold and may be intimidating to use at first. After swatching them I discovered that they aren’t as bold as they appear in the pan and can be used lightly to add a pop of colour.

From Anastasia Beverly Hills website:

A collection of six metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity. Layer shades of Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit or apply separately on face and body for a radiant glow. 

Six shades for highlighting eyes, face, and body
Buildable metallic-lustre formula
Can be applied wet or dry

Eclipse – Pink champagne pearl with a peach reflect.

Luna – Mother of pearl with an icy orchard reflect.

Spectra – Sparkling lilac pearl with an iridescent blue-green reflect.

Helia – Yellow gold pearl with a turquoise reflect.

Orion – Blue pear with a purple amethyst reflect.

Lyra – Rose gold ear with a champagne orchid reflect.

The texture of these highlighters are very creamy and soft. They are easy to apply and blend and like I said earlier they are highly pigmented. The first time I applied one of the shades to my cheekbones I was blown away and kept moving my head around while looking in the mirror to catch them reflecting. It gives off such a pretty glow that definitely can’t be missed.

They do have some sparkle to them but the glitter isn’t chunky at all and once on the cheek the sparkle is beautifully subtle. I also really like that these highlighters don’t emphasise any texture on my cheeks at all, like some drugstore palettes do. They go on very smoothly, last well throughout the day and make me feel like a glowing, sparkly princess.

This palette is £40 which is pretty pricey, but when divided by 6 that makes each individual pan to be roughly £6.66. Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of the biggest makeup brands out there right now who are known for creating gorgeous, high quality products. I have yet to try a product of theirs that I don’t like, so I know I won’t hesitate splashing out on another Glow Kit.

Overall Thoughts:

It should come as no surprise that I love this palette and cannot find a bad word to say about it. My favourite/most used shades are Eclipse and Lyra but all of the colours are magical. It has quickly become my favourite highlighter palette that I’ve used almost everyday since receiving it.

It’s safe to say I’m obsessed and can see myself purchasing more Glow Kits in the future. There is a reason these palettes are so highly regarded and are favoured by most, because they are fantastic! Anastasia Beverly Hills is well on it’s way to being my favourite brand and I can’t wait to see what products they’ll be be releasing this year.

Do you have the Aurora Glow Kit? What are your thoughts on it?
