Anastasia Moonchild Glow Kit ($40.00 for 0.90 oz.) includes six, shimmering, sparkling highlighters. Three of the shades have a slight duochrome (very subtle–I think it works on cheeks, but it’s hard to capture in a still photo), while the other three are more consistent in color all the way through. I think it’s a really intriguing, versatile palette for those who like to experiment with color and layering with various blushes and bronzers. Anastasia does indicate this palette can be used on eyes as well (the other Glow Kits mention face and body but not eyes), so that may be an alternative use for some. The biggest issue I had with the palette was that some shades were a little drier/looser in the pan, and of course, these are sparkly and metallic, so they can emphasize pores, depending on how much you apply.
As a note, it does contain slightly less product than the 4-pan Glow Kits (which have 1.04 oz. of product) but is not significantly less (the upside is you get more shades, and if you rarely pan your products, it’s a better value to have the additional shades).
Blue Ice is an icy white base with blue sparkle and shimmer. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was sparkling and lightly metallic on the skin. The texture is a smidgen loose in the pan, but it didn’t create a mess in the pan and did not look dry or sheer out too easily on the skin. It can emphasize pores if worn at semi-opaque or greater coverage, but when I used it as a highlight over another blush, it didn’t emphasize my skin’s texture. This shade lasted for eight hours on me. Sugarpill Ice Angel (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Roadstripe (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Star is a light silver with subtle, cool undertones paired with a metallic sheen. The amount of shine and reflectiveness in this shade is insane–it is very, very metallic and looks brighter on as it catches the light than viewed straight-on. The texture was soft and blendable, but it was also a little dry. It did emphasize my pores/skin texture noticeably. Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Lovely #1 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Blue Moon (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC A Party of Pastels #1 (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever ME202 Iceberg Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter (95% similar). NARS Flowers 3 #1 (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).
