Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

To be honest, I hadn't followed the hype of the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit until I was allowed early access as a VIB Rouge customer at Sephora but after that, I couldn't get this product off my mind! I debated whether I really needed another highlighting palette (no, the answer is no!) but it was so pretty that I just couldn't resist. I ordered it and planned to have a review up last weekend but for some unknown reason, my normal 2-day shipping took over a week!

Anyway.



How pretty is this? I am obsessed with all things pink and rose gold right now so naturally I was drawn to this palette for that reason, despite the fact that the warm-toned colors aren't necessarily suited to my pale skin tone. The packaging has a super fine micro sparkle which looks so pretty in person and the palette is quite sturdy to hold. The downside of this packaging is that the palette doesn't include a mirror and it is certainly big enough and feels bare without one.


I haven't tried any of the other Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits so I cannot compare the formula of the product to those. They are quite soft to touch but the glitter prevents them from being totally buttery. I've seen some people complain about the amount of glitter in these so keep that in mind if you are someone who prefers a sheen as opposed to an actual glitter bomb glow. That being said, the glitter is very fine and not at all chunky so it doesn't bother me. The shades are incredibly pigmented but blend out nicely, however, as I suspected, not all of these colors are going to work on my pale skin.


Kitty Kat - pinkish rose gold 
Forever Young - rose gold
Daydream - creamsicle orange
Forever Lit - holographic silvery-white with blue undertones
Glo Getter - orangey gold
143 - copper gold

My three favourite are Kitty Kat, Forever Young and Forever Lit. Daydream is an absolute write off for me as it will never work as a highlight on my skintone. Glo Getter and 143 are quite similar in color and may be useable in the summertime with a tan. Is this palette really worth it for me considering that I can only use half of the shades on a regular basis? No, not really.. but I will keep it regardless as the shades that I can use are gorgeous. Also, I have incredibly pale skin so while this isn't the best for my skin tone, I think it would be great for anyone who is a medium skin tone or above.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit is available at Sephora online and in-store for $59 CAD.

  1. Completely agree!! I love the look of it and I want it so bad but for my pale skin I knew it would be a luxury buy and not something I would use to pan.
    I'm still tempted because of how gorgeous it is though hahaha :))

  2. I loooooove this palette, but I'm also a light/medium skin tone in the winter and medium in the summer so all of the shades do work for me. You could use the darker ones as an eyeshadow though! It would take absolutely forever to go through, but at least they won't be sitting there all lonely haha

  5. I am too pale for most palettes, this one included. So many of the shades just wouldn't work for me.

  6. I'm definitely too pale for 5 of shades in this palette, but I can imagine it being gorgeous on darker skin!

    1. Kitty Kat and Forever Young may look too dark in the swatch but they blend out beautifully on my pale skin!

  7. I love how that palette looks but I'm in the same boat, at least half those shades won't work for me. I sold myself on a MUFE palette with similar shades last year and barely use it so I'm not doing it a second time!

  12. It looks like such a beautiful palette. I'm in the same boat though, often the darker blushes, bronzers and highlighters don't work with my skin. Kitty Kat though <3

  13. Such a pretty palette - it wouldn't work for me either though, I'm too pale. Love Kitty Kat. You could always use it as an eyeshadow palette? :)
