ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS GLOW KIT IN -MOON CHILD-


Hello beauties I know I haven’t been posting much on both my blog and Instagram, and I’m so sorry for not being as active as I used to be but I finally passed the Storm.

Nevertheless, the continuous raves flooding over my Instagram feed i have finally got my hands on ABH glow kit in moon child, they are Metallic powder highlighters to give you an intense luminosity!! Yassss bring it on luminous, I am all about the glow. Thus let’s jump right into the packaging, swatches and my honest review.

PACKAGING

I am obsessed with the packaging, it has a holographic rainbow-like, and every time I gaze at it all I think of dipping myself in Rainbows and Unicorns!! It’s has a magnetic finish which I like and travel friendly, I just wish it had a mirror.

BACK PACKAGING

SWATCHES


Purple Horseshoe: Bright pinky Lavender iridescent effect with silver sparkles.
Star: Light silver, more sheen and less sparkly
Blue Ice: white frost with blue iridescent and pink sparkles.


Blue Moon: Silvery blueish metallic sheen with pink sparkles
Lucky Clover: green-yellow gold metallic sheen with yellow sparkles 
Pink Heart: Pinky Violet metallic sheen with silver sparkles 


I noticed some of the shades shifts differently like a duo-chrome effect which what makes it unique, Also all the shades i have mentioned are my personal thoughts when swatched, so you may see it differently but that is how i visioned it.

I did notice some shades had more a powdery feel than buttery which i honestly didn't like maybe from the intense sparkle, but it’s buildable. Has a both warm and cool tone to compliment both skin tones. It’s also safely to use on eyes as Anastasia pointed out.

A trick i learnt if you haven't known about it is spray Fix+ all over you face, let it semi dry then apply the highlighter on your cheekbones (i used ABH BRUSH #23) and watch the glow blind your mind!!

I must say it’s worth having in your collection, the shades are life so much prettier and glowy in person, no matter how hard i try to take the perfect shot it will still not capture its beautiness. You can only purchase the ABH Moon Child glow kit from their Official store which retails $40 USD, however i was charged $78.63 AUD Total with shipping and transaction fee.

NYX FACE & BODY GLITTERS


Hello lovelies finally swatches and review are up, I Struggled a while to post it earlier yet my phone decides to delete my camera roll with no reason SIGH!! Goodbye memories and hard work beauty shots. 


Anyhow, a while ago i was browsing through Ulta to check for any new beauty related updates and I randomly saw NYX face and body glitter, it caught my attention as i am a sucker to sparkly things, though my only problem Ulta doesn’t ship here neither land down under stock it. 


We are always behind when it comes to beauty products it’s a pain!! But thanks to ShopandBox and Anne for making it possible. As some might not know Shopandbox is a website when you assign for a personal shopper to shop for you in selected countries specially hard to reach items, I lost count on purchases using their service so i do recommend checking them out.

Now let’s keep it short and jump right into the swatches below.

Left to Right | Gunmetal, Crystal, Blue, Rose


I used TooFaced shadow insurance glitter glue to swatch them and Let me tell you they swatch so gorgeously, the glitter has a finely milled texture that won’t irritate your skin, not chunky at all and colors are so beautiful, my most favorite out of the four glitters are Rose and Blue; I honestly think it has the same texture of a high end glitter the only difference it has a brand name stamped on it. I do recommend them as they are also affordable; Ulta is still having their promotion buy one get second half price!! I love bargains so hurry and save.

UPDATE  To my Aussie Followers Asos finally stocks NYX face and body glitters if your interested :) linked attached below. 

Retail Price | $5.99 USD \ $12 AUD
