Anastasia Beverly Hills “Ultimate Glow” Kit Review

Anastatia Bevery Hills

 

Ever since ABH introduced glow kits I’ve been obsessively trying them all. Naturally this Anastasia Ultimate Glow Kit was no exception. I snagged it as soon as it became available for purchase. Knowing how much I love other kits (especially “Gleam” and “That Glow”) I had really high hopes for this product. Sadly I was thoroughly disappointed.

The Ultimate Glow kit retails for $45.00 and contains 0.96 oz of product – it includes a total of 6 brand new highlighters mainly in gold-hued theme.
Shades include:
• Snow (true icy white with platinum effect)
• White Sand (warm beige with gold reflect)
• Golden Dawn (warm amber with gold reflect)
• Sunray (warm copper with peach gold lustre)
• Amber Gold (warm rose with gold lustre)
• Hot Sand (warm bronze with amber lustre)

The pans are huge – just like in the previous kits (however, they are not removable). Unlike the other glow kits that contain super finely milled texture these felt entirely different. Once applied on the skin they were way too glittery and emphasized even the tiniest of pores on my face. I made efforts to try this kit using different application techniques including various brushes and it made absolutely no difference. The application was uneven and even patchy.

The color “Snow” which is a bright white worked really well for inner corner/tear duct highlight but it felt too harsh on my face – overall I found that this is the only workable shade in the kit. Anastasia brand markets this product with secondary use of shades as eyeshadows. I thought performance on the eyes was even worse than it was on the face (I had a similar experience with the “Moon Child” Glow Kit). Pigment did not translate on the eyes and I experienced a lot of fall out.

Overall, this was a thorough disappointment for me.
