Swatches (Dampened): Hard Candy, Mimosa, Starburst, Crushed Pearl

This is my very first Anastasia Beverly Hills order! I do own a few of the ABH brow products that I purchased from Sephora, but I’ve never ordered directly from the company before. So this is pretty exciting. I ended up ordering this gorgeous Glow Kit and a liquid lipstick (don’t look so surprised lol) which I’ll be reviewing later on.

Before I get started I’d like to mention how impressed I am with the speedy shipping. I received my order 2 days after placing it! When you order something new and exciting it’s pretty great to be able to hold it in your hands so soon after ordering.

This Glow Kit is gorgeous! It contains 4 metallic powder highlighters – Hard Candy, Mimosa, Starburst, and Crushed Pearl. They can be used on your face, eyes, and body. The website states that if you apply these with a dampened makeup brush you can achieve more glow. I posted both dry and dampened swatches so that you can see for yourself. These really do come to life when dampened. They’re gorgeous as is, but it really does pop more when dampened.

These highlighters were incredibly soft. They swatched beautifully! Unfortunately, I don’t have a face swatch to share with you just yet. I did use this Glow Kit in a look last week and loved it, but I wasn’t too crazy about the photos. While I was working on the new theme I made the mistake of looking back on some of my older posts. Let’s just say that the very last thing this blog needs is another awful selfie. Yikes! I promise to get one up soon though!

The wonder of you
