Anastasia Moonchild Glow Kit Review, Photos, Swatches

Anastasia Moonchild Glow Kit
Anastasia Moonchild Glow Kit

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. MAC Like a Dream (PiP, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Milk Makeup Icy Blue (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (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. Make Up For Ever ME202 Iceberg Blue (DC, $21.00) is brighter (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Lovely #1 (DC, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Purple Horseshoe is a bright, light pinky-lavender with iridescent purple and pink shimmer. This shade had a drier, looser texture–almost gritty with the way the larger sparkles separated from the powder–that applied better to the skin than it looks as a heavier swatch. The highlighter blended out well, but even at sheerer coverage, it did emphasize pores and my skin’s natural texture (which is something that isn’t always a deal-breaker, but it is worth noting). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Datura (DC, $14.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Unicorn Tears (Highlighter) (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Guerlain Holographic (Right) (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Blush Pearl (P, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Anarchista (PiP, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pink Heart is a dirty, light beige with hints of green in its base that shifts from light pink to cooler violet. This was the least metallic in the palette, though it had more noticeable sparkly bits that sat on the skin. The texture was smooth, soft, and blendable without a hint of dryness. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before fading. OFRA Cloud 9 (LE, $29.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Whimsy (P, $29.00) is more muted (95% similar). NYX Snow Rose (P, $7.99) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Pink Light (P, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Trafalgar #2 (PiP, ) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Milk Makeup Mars (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lucky Clover is a very light, warm white that flits between yellowy gold and greenish gold with a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft, blendable texture (just a touch dry). It only emphasized pores if I wore it at near opaque coverage. The color started to break down after eight and a half hours of wear. Looxi Beauty Voodoo (P, $7.50) is cooler (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Posh (P, $7.50) is darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Voltage (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Flame (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Dulcinee #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Winter Falls in LA (LE, $4.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Zestful (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Buxom Room Service (P, $12.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Raw Jade (Left) (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Perilune (DC, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). Becca Golden Mint (LE, $38.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Limelight (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 2 Frozen Gold (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blue Moon is an icy, bluish-silver with strong, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. There’s enough shimmer and pigmentation in this shade that it doesn’t look chalky or ashy against my skin tone, despite seeming to be white-based. The texture was very soft and a little went a long way, so I’d highly recommend using a light hand when applying this one and building up. It blended out fairly easily and lasted for eight hours on me. Viseart Blue Diamond (PiP, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora Blue Rhythm (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Catrice Icy Glaze (P, $6.99) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Dark Energy #3 (LE, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). theBalm #34 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Unfortunately it sounds like it’s going to be too dry for me. Lots of powder formulas out there just don’t meld with my cheeks. Luckily, dupes! I’ll have to try dabbing on some fun eyeshadows and blending them out with my tried and true highlighters.

All good, money saved. I think I can dupe five of the shades with my eyeshadow stash. As always, thank you for a detailed, critical review. No way was I going to buy this before hearing your take 🙂

Hello, avid temptalia reader here! Is there any chance you’ll do a review on the Pat McGrath Skinfetish 003 highlighter kit? -Andrea

Ohh, I love how you show the mixed color looks at the end of the review! I”ll have to borrow some of your combos 🙂 I definitely think that this is a product that is not done justice in most photos due to the nature of the reflect/ duochrome. I’m a little bummed that this did not score higher but I know you’re objective and I’m happy to report that I still love my palette! For highlighter fiends like myself and anyone who loves an “ethereal” look, this is a can’t-miss!

I think it’s a fun palette and like it a lot personally, but it’s definitely not perfect with respect to quality 🙂

B is a GOOD rating! And this palette gets an A for ingenuity: there’s nothing else on the market like it. I agree, if you are a perso who loves the ethereal look, this is a MUST HAVE palette!

This palette kind of threw me for a loop. I have Sun Dipped and I LOVE it, but these colors – I dunno. I just can’t imagine wearing them as highlighters. On these eyes, sure, but unless you’re into that whole avant garde look then these seem out of place. To each their own, though!

I don’t consider myself someone who wears avant garde makeup (I like looking at it), but I got a ton of compliments when I wore this palette out!

While I love and can appreciate the creativity and effort put into this beautiful palette, I could see it as something that would sit on my vanity I would rarely ever reach for. An unfortunate pass for me.

Oh wow, interesting because a lot of people seemed to like this palette. I wasn’t planning on getting this. I have yellow undertones and find silvery white highlighters can look harsh, prefer gold or beige highlighters. And I have some Looxi shadows in icy blue/purple that are being re-purposed as highlighters because they didn’t fare well on my oily lids, so I’m good to go.

I received this and the Sweets xlowkit in the mail Friday and ALL the pans were cracked or shattered. I did go ahead and swatch them, but the formula felt very moist. I’m wondering if I got a bad one? Thought this would be a great place to ask if anyone else experienced this?

That stinks, Melissa ? I ordered both as well and they arrived intact- I would say the texture is in line with this review (def not wet, leans a little dry).

This looks really pretty but I wouldn’t wear most of those colors on my face and I don’t really need more eye shadows.

This might be really pretty on pale people, but I don’t see half these shades working on most skintones tbh.

Interesting! I really liked this on my skin tone and thought it looked good on the various skin tones used in the campaign shots.

I ordered both Sweets and Moonchild. They arrived yesterday…..shattered in a million pieces.
Both look gorgeous, but the ones I received are completely unusable.

What has me cracking up is that just about every single dupe for these shades are eyeshadows! However, they look surprisingly good. And VERY refreshing, too. I really like this palette a lot more than I expected to! Wonder though, whether it will work with my warm, medium depth skintone?

There aren’t a lot of highlighters in these colors, so I pulled dupes from eyeshadows so that I would be useful and not a total waste of time!

Very, very true! Only a few indie brands that aren’t the easiest to get a hold of. Therefore, eyeshadows that are duochrome and in cooler toned shades do make the most sense! ?

There are 2 or 3 colours in here that I could wear and would want to wear but the problem with palettes like this and with so many blush palettes too is that the combination of shades don’t all work for me (and I’m guessing many others….people who look good in peach but not berry or vice versa) so having a palette is just totally false economy.

I’m hoping it’s just a matter of time (hell, WHAT am I saying???? I have more than enough highlighters already….the last thing I need is one more even though I’m heading out to get UD Sin whenever it restocks! I just suddenly decided I “needed” it).

Wow, Christine. These look lovely on you, but I really feel like an idiot now – when I saw this palette, my assumption was that it was eyeshadows because back in 1983 (or so) , I had a treasured Dior eyeshadow palette that was 4 shades of whitish with pink, blue, green, and yellow iridescence. Loved that palette at 16 and rocked it with my L’oreal SeaLily nails (sheer pinkish pearl with blue iridescence).

At 49, I don’t think I’ll try these shades on my cheeks, or at least not in the office, but it’s seriously tempting to pick up as an eye palette.

Ombffffffg. I still have it, and I’ve got nearly 20 years on you. There also are some old Nars frosty duos, from was it a palette called license to kill? I tried to de-ocd the depotting process, by not getting worked up about the shade names and the palette origin. This is the kind of thing that says ‘Nyah, Nyah!’ Because it bugs me if I don’t recall. But I was pretty thrilled to be reminded by C that there are a gazillion e/s that can be repurposed as ‘lighters. You certainly could wear those on your cheeks. But if you channel them as shadows, go for it. Think I’ll get a little z, swap over the frosties to it, and play with that. Thanks to everyone who is reminding me to shop my stash. (When I die, it’s going to be like that scene in Zorba the Greek or Filene’s Basement, with former friends snatching my stash bits. ). I know that sounds totally wrong, but you know what I mean.

I love seeing how these look on you, Christine! You can see the variation in color on your skin and they all look lovely on you! On me, the way I apply them, there’s a nice sheen with only subtle hint of color — color that others wouldn’t immediately notice. Except for Star, I’m going to have to be careful while applying that one! I could build all the shades up, or use a denser brush, to make the color more obvious, but the chances of me doing that are infinitesimally slim. 😉

Now I’m wondering if I could make the Sweets Glow Kit work. The fact that these can be worn on the eyes, combined with my weakness for eyeshadow, is making it hard to resist!

The two silvery ones are the most interesting to wear – I feel like they encourage some creativity! 🙂

The Sweets (and other Glow Kits) only say face and body (Moonchild is the first to say eyes!).

Awww… I thought both were eye-safe. 🙁 Thanks for letting me know! I would have been even more disappointed if I’d found that out after purchase.

I found it… curious? because the descriptions are a bit different, because I had sworn I heard people using the other kits on eyes as well, lol. I figured I’d pass it on though 🙂

See, trishb, you can totally rock these on cheeks. I think colored highlighters are perfect to put in a tad of color that isn’t blatantly obvious. Plus, with the double duty for eyes, you should def be in.

I think this palette is lovely and unique, but many shades look more similar than not on the skin. They could have done duos, or maybe a palette with 3/4 shades.

It seems to depend on what it is paired with as well as skin tone – some are more pronounced in person as well, since they have shift!

Oooh I love horseshoe on you. Brewery nice icy purple. I wish I wash into highlighters just to buy this cause it’s such pretty packaging.

Too much of a metallic sheen going on with these highlighters. I think it would work for a someone who is very young and still does the club scene.

To each their own 🙂 I liked it more than I thought (it’s very easy to wear for me), and I’ve never even been to a club.

While these are beautiful highlighters, I feel as thought they look the same on the cheeks, just in varying intensities of frostiness. I honestly feel the same way with all highlighters- unless there’s a significant difference in tone/depth, like a bronze versus a pale gold highlight, they all seem to sheer out the same on the skin. Idk! Maybe I’m just over the highlighter craze.

I’ve been dreaming of cool toned highlighters for a while… why, oh why, does this have to be made in China 🙁

Hi,

Love the review. You really captured the subtle differences between the shades.

Do you know if this will be available at Ulta ever?

Funny to see that the Viseart Blue Diamond is a dupe– because I began playing with the Bridal Satin palette shadows as highlighters to see if I could dupe this and if I would really use this palette. Love the cool tones and I’m a fair neutral but not really sure where I would use highlighting actually. On the fence.

Looks pretty most of my highlighters are gold or peach toned. This different ,I’m waiting for mine to arrive. Can’t wait to play with the colors on my face and eyes. Hope I won’t have to return it.

What a bummer! I was gonna get this when this comes to the UK but the fact it enhances texture is a no no! What a shame as it looks so beautiful!

For warm girls: I am medium warm with yellow undertones and these are gorgeous on me! I love this palette and am so glad I purchased it.

Blue moon looks so pretty across the high plane of my cheekbone with star popped right onto (lightly) the apple of my cheek. I have no fear of color (but definitely some fear of neutrals, lol) and love how when the blue captures the light, you can actually SEE that it’s blue. The blue also looks pretty mixed with lavendar. Star is definitely gorgeous to highlight the Cupid’s bow of upper lip and the inner eye. Funny story– when the palette came in I swatched the colors all over my face and when I got to star, I had no place left so it went on my forehead, between my eyebrows! It was seriously like having white light on my forehead!

My skin tone is yellow enough (NC37) that it’s visible to most people (almost anybody I stand by looks pink by comparison). I find that using a contrasting highlighter brings out the color of the highlighter more. If you go to the Anastasia website, they show these highlighters on a woman with warm, medium to dark skin, and they are stunning on her!

But seriously, a B is a GREAT RATING for any product to get, and if this palette is calling to any of the readers here, don’t hesitate based on the palette not getting an A. For me, this palette is an A product for ingenuity and because it fills an empty spot in my wishlist. I was looking for something outside the norm when I purchased Denona’s Nude highlighter kit (which I disliked but almost kept for the cool kaleidoscope of colors in the powder compact) so as soon as I saw this I knew I had to have it because it was SIX usually colored highlighters for $30 less than the one Denona highlighter. It is fun, creative, and beautiful!

I’ve been going “I want this” for weeks, but I wanted to hear your thoughts on it before I purchased it, because I saw a surprising little amount of actual reviews so far. Sounds like a pretty good highlighter palette though, so I guess I’ll be ordering it soon haha! Also, I really like highlighter combinations you provided! 🙂

I like it! I think it’s fun, and for me, I wish it didn’t emphasize texture as easily, but it’s not so emphasizing that I wouldn’t wear it (I have actually wanted to reach for it all week, lol).

Do you think we will be getting more illuminator shades this year? I love the Glow Kits but they obviously serve a different purpose!

Also – will you be reviewing Laura Mercier’s Eye Art Caviar Palette? It seems to have no hype but sounds compelling with the inspiration.

Do want. Don’t need. Totally see the color and LOVE the differences. This would be a lot easier for me than the orig HG ALP. Thanks to C and TrishB, going to play with some old shadow. Actually, I had thought of those old buzzards, every time I swatched the crystalline MUFEs in store. Standard golden highlight does not appeal to me at all, but these cool ones, oh, yeah. Hoping I can resist.
Off topic: cruising the blogosphere, I saw a ton of references to Temptalia, being the only reviews that cannot be bought. So true, and so valued.

Oooh, let us know how it works with some eyeshadows you have. I thought the palette was cool, but I wasn’t sure if it’d work for my coloring or with blushes – but I actually really love how these layered and paired with other blushes.

I received both MoonChild and Sweets Glow Kits last week. Wore Pink Heart and Purple Horseshoe together and it was love! Just gorgeous and more wearable than some will think! So glad I decided to get both palettes!

I try to fucus on the cons with this palette, I don’t need my pores to show up more than they do, sparkes and whatever else I can find because I’m almost in love with all of these highlighters.
I don’t need any more highlighters, it’s notr a product I use a lot of, even if I use it most days, but this palette is just so amazingly ethereal and beautiful.
I’ll go and take a cold shower and try to wait a few days, maybe this needy feeling will pass 🙂
I love your eyemakeup looks in the photos, Christine.

I like this a lot, it looks fun and my favourite is Purple Horseshoe. However, it emphasises skin texture and that’s a no-no for me since I have fine wrinkles, having dry skin around my eyes and on my cheeks. I think I’ll go for the Sweets palette instead.

Yeah, that’s the only downside with the ABH formula – some of them can get very metallic and texturize skin!

Fingers crossed that this will be in stock for just a little while longer. I really want it, but I have bills to pay. Stupid adult responsibilities!

I think you did a good job capturing the different shades. It’s a beautiful palette, but the more I look at it, the more I think the Looxi highlighters I have are close enough and have a better texture.

I purchased this palette and I absolutely loooove it. I’m the kind of person who is… well, go ham or go home. I love bright colours and in-your-face make up and especially highlighters, plus I am cool-toned, so when this came out I felt like it was made specially for me.

After reading that other people had received theirs shattered, I was terrified of what would happen to mine in international shipping (woo living in Australia) – but mine came very securely packaged and completely intact. Since then, I’ve dropped it a few times (because I am clumsy as hell), and they’re still intact – so maybe the first couple of batches had something weird in the formula?

I have dry skin, and while I do think they don’t last as long as they would on someone with normal skin, I don’t think they wear off any faster than anything else does? They’re not super amazingly long-wearing, and they definitely come off after a good sweat at the gym, but they haven’t disappeared from my face within two hours like some products do either.

I purchased this palette just to use it as eyeshadow since the cool blue tones compliment my eyecolor. I think for highlight it will be too obvious. I like it more subtle.

Would somebody with a medium skin complexion still be able to wear this as well as somebody paler? I’m trying to figure out what skin tone this would work best with!
