Anastasia Beverly Hills isn’t just the queen of brows anymore. She’s slowly but surely becoming the queen of highlighters too. The saga first began with her beautiful line of Illuminators. Now, she’s kicked it up a notch with her iconic Glow Kits which I think every makeup junkie needs to have in her stash. If not both, at least one! I just knew That Glow would be mine until I laid eyes on Gleam and realized how amazing it looks on my brown skin. I ended up adding Gleam to my collection first in hopes of skipping That Glow since I have so many gold highlighters. But there was no way I could resist That Glow for long. It’s too superb!
Like Gleam, That Glow comes loaded with 4 shimmering highlighters but this time in more warmer shades all with a hint of gold. Both Glow Kits seem to work well for all skin tones but That Glow is an easy win for medium to dark guys and gals as the gold really pops and compliments darker skin tones beautifully. That Glow Glow Kit consists of:
- Sunburst bright luminous gold with with metallic finish
- Golden Bronze sultry warm bronze with a gold flecked finish
- Bubbly rose champagne with pearlescent finish
- Dripping in Gold lavish gold with a vivid reflective finish
All 4 shades are stunning but my favorites are Golden Bronze and Sunburst. Golden Bronze not only gives off an amazing glow but it also adds a touch of warm bronze to my cheeks making them light up in the sun and gleam brightly in the dark with an extra hint of bronze. Sunburst doesn’t give off nearly as much color as Golden Bronze but the metallic finish is gorgeous and it really delivers a pronounced highlight that’s undeniably awesome.
That Glow isn’t just all pretty colors though. The formula is quite nice too! Each shade has a soft, silky texture that doesn’t feel dense or powdery. They all glide smoothly on the skin with nice pigmentation offering a subtle, natural glow with a light sweep or an intense seen from across the street goddess glow when you swirl the brush around the pan a few times. All of the highlighters are very easy to apply and blend no matter what level of glow you’re looking for making it easy for both beginners and certified glow junkies to work with.
That Glow also has some pretty impressive staying power too. Each shade wears nicely for over 8 hours on my dry cheeks without showing much signs of fading at all. They all seem to hold up well in the summer heat too as I’ve rocked them during the heat of the day and gave them a good sweat on nights out only to come home to shimmering cheeks that look just as fresh and radiant as they did before I left the house. I hate to say that you need both Glow Kits but I think Gleam and That Glow are absolute must haves–especially if you love highlighters. The Glow Kit formula works well for all skin types without emphasizing pores or the texture of skin and both kits look absolutely beautiful on everyone. Not to mention, they’re a really good deal at just $40. The price seems kind of high at first but when you break it down to just $10 a highlighter and factor in the huge pan size and the fact that they also double as eyeshadows then it all adds up to a value much higher than $40. If you don’t own Gleam or That Glow yet, I recommend you haul your butt to the nearest Ulta, Sephora or Macy’s to swatch them for yourself so you can see just how much you need them!
