Review & Swatches: Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit

The day has finally come LA LA LAAAA! I have lusted over this palette since it came out and I sobbed to the glow gods that it was so difficult to get hold of in the UK. But Anastasia came through and provided us with a UK based website. I finally managed to purchase the Moonchild palette and it arrived 2 days later well packaged and gleaming. I had big expectations as I already own the Glow Kit in That Glow - if you didn't catch my review or face review you can catch them here and here!

An amazingly beautiful array of 6 shades which are unique in colour range but still suitable for every day looks I was super excited to swatch and play around with this palette.

The entire palette cost £39.00 with free shipping directly from the ABH UK website. With all 6 shades you get 4.2g of product which I feel is a lot, each shade costs you £6.50 which is a great price. I find that highlighter palettes are always a great investment as you (usually) only need a small amount for a full face of glow so they last you a very long time. These highlighters are amazing quality, super smooth and blendable, they sheer out nicely but are easily buildable so you can make some amazingly pigmented looks or use these as eyeshadows.

I swatched each shade with no primer and my fingers were clean and not wet. It's safe to say I am very impressed and I'm looking forward to creating some fun and unique looks with these.

Blue Ice is a silver based highlight with blue/purple toned reflects that is such a surprising shade. It looked pretty silver in the pan so I wasn't expecting the highly pigmented blue to come through.

Star is a true grey silver; a really beautiful shade that is incredibly pigmented, smooth and buttery. Really impressed with this shade and will look amazing as an inner corner eye highlight or with a cool toned make up look

Purple Horseshoe is definitely one of my favourite shades in the palette. A really unique purple toned silvery highlight with blue based purple reflects. Again, incredibly pigmented, smooth and blendable.

Pink Heart is another really surprising shade - looks pretty silver in the pan but has an incredible pink reflects which looks amazing when it catches the light

Lucky Clover is one of the shades I was really curious to try - a silver based highlight with an icy green shift to it. A really unique shade which will look amazing with a green eye look or used as an inner corner highlight.

Blue Moon is another of my favourite shades - an amazing heavy silver base but somehow with a dark blue shift through it which looks incredible when it reflects the light.

So overall, I'm in love with this palette and can't wait to get stuck into it properly. I think it has the capability to create some incredible looks, especially some fun and quirky face/eye looks too.

Have you tried this palette? What's your favourite shade?
