Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit

Anastasia That Glow Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four warm-toned shades that range from pale, buttery gold to copper. Each shade is 0.26 oz. and can be removed from the palette, if desired, but they are currently only sold together (not sure if they will eventually be available as pans only). Presently, it is exclusive to Macy’s and the brand’s website. According to Anastasia, these are supposed to be “metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity” that can also be worn on the eyes. They are softer and silkier with a more finely-milled consistency compared to the Illuminators released a couple of months ago. These also have a finer shimmer and overall sheen that is less emphasizing of pores on the skin.

Anastasia Plum Smoke, Macaroon, Not Today Eyeshadows

Anastasia Plum Smoke Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy taupe with mauve tones and a subtle, bronze sheen. It’s a rather complicated color, because I can see the “plum” in a sense yet wouldn’t think to describe it in the plum family. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that ran a little powdery. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours. Dior Golden Shock #2 (LE) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I544 Pink Granite (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Stila Garnet (P) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Make a Mauve (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Heaven Knows (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). theBalm Just This Once Jamie (P, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). LORAC Dusty Rose (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

Anastasia Aubergine Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a sprinkling of plum and purple sparkle over a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft, so it didn’t kick up excess product was still easy to use. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Anastasia Lace, Metal, Emerald, Peacock, Prussian Blue Eyeshadows

Anastasia Lace Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light, yellowed beige with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thinner, drier consistency–this one was firm in the pan, which made it harder to use. It blends out nicely, but it tends to go on sheer. It lasted for seven hours on me. Kat Von D Laetus (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Natural (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Her Mistress (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Clarins The Essentials #1 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Solace (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).
