At this point I’ve got a pretty decent highlighter collection. I really didn’t need another highlighter palette. Except that I did. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit was just too darn pretty to pass up!

The packaging is just your typical cardboard packaging, but it’s a really pretty sparkly pink! I love it! The kit includes 6 highlighters in the shades Kitty Kat which is a pink with platinum shimmer, Forever Young which is a pink pearl with silver shimmer, Daydream which is a coral with white gold shimmer, Forever Lit which is a platinum with lavender shimmer, Glo Getter which is a champagne with rose shimmer, and 143 which is a rose gold with bronze shimmer.

I found them all to be very pigmented. I did swatch them wet so that they’d pop more for the photos, but even when applied dry they’re still very pigmented. If you’re looking for a more natural highlight, this kit isn’t for you. This baby is going to give you some serious glow! I did get a bit of glitter everywhere when I applied some of the shades, but it wasn’t that big of a deal to me. I just figured I’d mention it because I know that some might find that to be bothersome.

I really love this Glow Kit and I’ve been using it ever since I purchased it. You can see it in action below. I used Kitty Kat to highlight my cheeks and used Forever Lit on the inner corner of my eyes, nose, and cupid’s bow.

There were a couple of eyeshadow palettes that I’ve had my eyes on. Do I need a new eyeshadow palette? No. But when shiny new things make their way to social media I can’t help but drool over them all! I let my wonderful husband treat me to just ONE. At first it wasn’t an easy decision. Here’s what I had to choose from; Beauty Killer by Jeffree Star Cosmetics, The Fun Palette by Ciaté London, the Serpentina Palette by Kat Von D which will be launching on July 5th, and finally the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. As you can see I went with the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. After seeing swatches flood my Instagram account I just knew I needed it in my life. And boy did I choose well!

This beautiful palette contains 14 shades in neutral to berry tones. These shadows are incredibly soft and buttery. Love Letter is the only one that felt a little dry, but it’s still easy to work with. Primavera was super soft and almost creamy. It just glided onto my arm. Most of these were super pigmented with just one swipe. But I did build up for photo purposes. Buon Fresco is seriously beautiful! My swatch doesn’t do it much justice. Cyprus Umber surprised me because I assumed it would be dry or chalky, but it was just as soft and buttery as all of the other shadows. These shadows were all very easy to work with. They applied and blended beautifully!

The palette also comes with a double-ended brush for application and blending. I don’t think it’s anything special, but I suppose it’s good to have if you’re traveling or something. I can see this palette being extra special in the Fall with all of the berry shades, but I’m totally going to be rocking the heck out of it now. It’s seriously one of the prettiest palettes in my collection now. You can see a look I created with the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette below. I totally plan to post more looks in the future. I don’t see me putting this in my tool box any time soon. At the moment it’s sitting on top of my ‘Daily Use’ tray.

I’m wearing Love Letter on my lid, Realgar in my crease, Tempera as my highlight, and Cyprus Umber on my lower lash line. As you can see I opted for a colorful look, but you can just as easily create a more neutral look. I’m really loving this palette!

I have a feeling I’ll be buying that Kat Von D palette anyway. I just can’t pass up a pretty palette.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Heathers

Swatch

This is my very first Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick! I was so excited to place my first order that I couldn’t decide on a single lipstick. I eventually decided on Heathers. It’s a gorgeous lipstick, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. Honestly, it looks nothing like the swatch that originally sold me on this shade. What I got was something a little more vampy. I probably should have known by looking at the tube, but that’s not always accurate. Oh well. These things happen.

I’m digging the name Heathers. I remember watching the movie many moons ago. The lipstick itself is really pretty and definitely unique in my collection as I don’t own many vampy shades. It was very creamy and fairly easy to apply. It was a comfortable wear and it was definitely long lasting. And it matches my hairs! Take a look!

I’ll definitely be placing another order for a few other shades. Something that’s a little more colorful and upbeat! Heathers did grow on me and I’ll probably hold onto it. I’m just not sure that I love it yet.
