Nicole Guerriero

Anastasia Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit ($40.00 for 0.96 oz.) includes six highlighters that are “metallic” and have “intense luminosity.” The formula is supposed to be “ultra-fine” and “won’t leave behind shimmer particles.” From experience, the formula didn’t feel quite as smooth, creamy, or as finely-milled as some of the original Glow Kits but felt more like the Sweets Glow Kit to me (not as glittery as the Ultimate Glow Kit)–smooth, denser but still blendable on the skin. There were some sparkles that blended beyond the area I had actually applied the color. With the exception of Forever Lit, the palette was very warm-toned, but I felt like Kitty Kat and Daydream looked very similar on along with Glo Getter and 143 (these two I think will be more similar across more skin tones, whereas the stronger orange tone in Daydream may be more or less apparent on some skin tones/undertones). If you love a strong, metallic, and sparkling highlighter, you may enjoy this kit, but if you like your highlighters more buildable, subtle, or cooler, this one likely won’t be the one for you. They can be worn on the eyes (per the brand) as well.

Kitty Kat

Kitty Kat is a medium peachy-pink with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, denser formula that wasn’t so dense that it was difficult to blend out or apply, but I felt like typical highlighter brushes required a heavier hand, while blush brushes worked well. The more I blended out the color, the less apparent the base color was and the lighter and more metallic it appeared on my skin. It just slightly emphasized texture on my cheeks. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Forever Young

Forever Young is a light-medium, peachy beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. There was noticeable sparkle/micro-glitter when applied to the skin along with a high-shine, very reflective finish. The consistency was very dense, almost cream-like, but it blended out fairly easily. This is one that I liked using with a lighter hand and building up coverage, which seemed to give the best results for me. At medium or higher coverage, it emphasized my skin’s natural texture slightly. It wore well for eight hours, but I noticed some of the sparkle had traveled over time.

Daydream

Daydream is a brighter, medium orange with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had good color coverage–it was sheerer compared to the others, though it was still nearly opaque in one layer–with a smooth, blendable consistency. I expected to get more noticeable color out of this shade (more like a highlighting blush), but it appeared primarily as a strong, golden sheen with very subtle warmth–that is something I found consistent across shades in the palette: they applied lighter than they appeared in the pan. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me.

Octyldodecanol, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Talc, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Boron Nitride, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, Synthetic Wax, Caprylyl Glycol, Dimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Magnesium Myristate, Methicone, Polybutene, Silica, Tin Oxide, May Contain: (+/-) Mica, Red 40 Lake (Ci 16035), Iron Oxides (Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

Forever Lit

Forever Lit is a bright, cool-toned white with a metallic finish. I thought it might have a duochrome shift to it, but it seemed more like a very bright white that looked marginally cooler at an angle but largely was the same shade. It had good pigmentation with a denser consistency, and I had some trouble getting good coverage out of this one without using a denser or flatter brush (but that might be a good thing for those wanting more buildable coverage). At anything greater than medium coverage, it drew attention to my skin’s texture, but worn as sheer to semi-sheer, it was just highly reflective. It started to fade after eight hours on me.

Octyldodecanol, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Talc, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Boron Nitride, Synthetic Wax, Caprylyl Glycol, Dimethicone, Ethylhexylglycerin, Magnesium Myristate, Methicone, Polybutene, Silica, Tin Oxide, May Contain: (+/-) Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

Glo Getter

Glo Getter is a brighter, golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, cream-like texture that was denser but still blendable on the skin. It had a stronger sheen compared to Daydream but looked similar overall on my skin tone. There was slight emphasis of my skin’s texture at semi-opaque or greater coverage. The highlighter stayed on well for eight hours.

143

143 is a dark gold with warm, bronzy undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was drier and felt chunkier as it had quite bit of glitter in it, too. This one took longer to blend out as the underlying base color did not go on as evenly as I would have liked. It actually has less of a reflective sheen compared to some shades in the palette, but it had a moderate amount of visible glitter pieces wherever I applied it. It was really hard for me to tell the difference between this shade and Glo Getter applied with respect to color. The color seemed to last closer to eight hours, but there was definite migration of sparkles while I wore it.

I am really enjoying this kit, though I do agree that it’s not their best formula. I have found that it applies best for me buffed in a bit with a stiffer, denser brush (like ABH’s, coincidentally) so that the shimmer particles don’t sit on my skin. With more finely milled and smooth highlighters I sometimes use a fan brush, but when I tried that with these they looked less flattering. Overall I’m really happy with the color variety, though!

is it true that the glitter can be brushed away after application? im really unsure if i should get this palette, i love the warm shades but im really scared of glitter fallout.

I don’t think it’s ALL glitter or a ton of glitter (some to moderate), but I also don’t think that you can just brush it off the face either! Of course, some flecks will disappear but you will still see some glitter.

Look at Kitty Cat! Look at Glo Getter! Look at Forever Lit! It makes me so happy to just at pictures of these beauties, even though my palette came in two days ago so I already know how gorgeous they are in real life! This review only serves to remind me that I cannot wait to get home to play with these again. I have all the Glow kits but this is definitely one of the top two best! Only Moonchild is comparable: The formula on Nicole is better but Moonchild has more unique color choices. All Glow Kits are excellent when used on eyes.

Admittedly, I did buy this one before reading your review, something I only very rarely do. I do love mine, but I have to say that, yes, these have a few glittery shades within it. And they do run more metallic, which is fine with me, because then I just use a lighter hand and a fan brush. What I really want to try next is to use these in an eyeshadow look!

Forever Young and 143 are the only ones I like here, and so I wont be getting.

I’m also just not feeling this one!! I’m happy for the people who want it/have it and love it. But I feel cold feet with it!!

Of the entire palette, I think there are 2 that I would wear religiously. I would have loved to purchase this palette, but highlighters are something I barely finish! Congrats to Nicole though for scoring this beautiful collab!

I really like the look of this on the eyes. I love my other Glow Kit so I’m thinking about giving this one a go. Thank you for the review as always Christine!

Mine should arrive today – after the Ultimate Glow disappointment, I decided I didn’t need any more ABH highlighters but I LURVE these warm peachy shades, so I couldn’t resist πŸ™‚ I like that they are multi-purpose too.

And surprisingly, I only have 3 dupes across all of them!

I’m not much for sparkly highlighters, but your eye look from this kit was so gorgeous I may buy it to use as shadows. Will have to see how it swatches in-person.

Really gorgeous but I don’t think it would work for me. I’m too fair and I’d have to mix everything with Forever Lit (which I’ve seen JKissa do in a video and they do look great). I could do that, but there are so many beautiful highlights in the world that I don’t need to mix to get them to work on me. Plus I go for a more subtle, editorial glow or something funky and duochome. So happy for Nicole though and this collab is seriously beautiful!

Yeah, unless you’re someone that naturally dips their brush across shades, it sounds like unnecessary work!

I have found that the trick to applying this highlighter is to pick up some product on the brush, then spray it with some type of face mist then brush it on. It goes on much smoother and doesn’t look glittery this way. Then when you’re done applying it, mist your face and the highlighter almost melts into the skin. Takes some work, but it looks flawless after that. Found this method works for the ultimate glow kit too.

I saw Jeffree Star review these and they looked so blinding! You’re showing me these can be toned down a bit. I like them but I think if I get any highlighters soon they will me NYX and possibly UD.

I really like Forever Lit. All the others seems too dark and warm to use as highlighters for me. Might work as simmery blushes though. I think it’s an easy pass. I can certainly see how anyone with a bit dakere, warmer skintone would look absolutely lovely using these though.

Yeah Forever light would be the only shade I could use. πŸ™ I kind of wish they would put out kits that worked for fair, light, medium and deep only skin tones with both cool and warm options in them. They did that for the face cream kits. πŸ˜‰

I really like Daydream and forever lit on you Christine! I think I will pass this. I already own three different highlighter palettes (Laura Mercier fall in love, Keven Aucoin Neo limelights in Ibiza and Stila star light star bright) Then I have a few other single ones too. I will have to refrain from buying more.!

I just don’t need all these highlighters in one place. A few of the shades are a bit too similar to one another and several are either too warm for me or too close to products I already have. Some pretty shimmeries in this but just not for my needs.

I’m really not a fan of the shades, too reddish/orange for me. It would like bring out the redness in my skin.

These are really pretty; I especially like the eye look! I won’t be getting these though, because ABH is not available in my country. I could get it through Beautylish, but I’m leery of glitter in highlighters so I like to swatch before purchase when reviewers mention a product has glitter.

Off topic, but I would like to know if you have any information about this, Christine. I was at the Make Up For Ever boutique yesterday, and the SA there said that they were going to revamp their range of artist eyeshadows and they would not be replenishing any of the current ones after they sell out. They were even having a buy 2 get 2 free promo because they wanted to clear all the stock they still had. Have you heard anything about that?

Hey Isa,

I don’t have any info, but that would surprise me since I’m not sure why they would revamp – and it has not been that long since they re-released. I know there were a few shades that they discontinued (I recall a very pale blue, pale pink, possibly pale lavender?) that seemed to ‘fade’ when left out on the displays. The Boutique would certainly know better than I — it’s SUPER rare for a brand to ever blast their discontinuations and even if I ask, I rarely get a real answer.

HI Christine, thanks for your reply. πŸ™‚

I was super surprised as well, because I too remember MUFE releasing these shadows only a few years ago and I think they were generally well received.

I bought 2 kvd alchemist palettes (amazzzzing/game changer Imo) and this one yesterday, my champagne pop is almost out, I agree with you, very similar shades across the board and my problem is texture to.. I really love your honest reviews! I’m fighting returning it (*tears*) and hoping to make it work, spraying shows more texture and lighter brushes don’t work since these aren’t finely milled. My question is what are your recommendations or fave brushes to apply this /blend it out… I really want to make them work as these peachy colours in one palette are still uncommon.. My sweets palette is the exact same textures as these and I can never get it to show or even transfer properly onto my skin??

Have you tried a blush brush instead? You might also try lighting pushing the brush into the surface instead of sweeping – that often works better with denser textures in general (like with MUFE eyeshadows).

Beautiful shades, debating if I should get because I already have so many highlighting kits. Did you find he shade “daydream” to have any emphasis of skins texture, you didn’t not whether it did or didn’t. If you don’t mention it does that usually mean it was kind to pores?

I read that this was no longer LE on Instagram. I hope not ??Or I wish they’d make Kitty Kat a single. Ugh I love that shade!

I just checked & no, it still says LE. Sephora says sold out. I don’t know why I partially believe certain posts on IG. I think I wanted to believe this one lol! I think that sometimes ppl will intentionally steer others the wrong way on there for their own nefarious purposes! Lol still want Kitty Kat as a perm shade though!

I feel like the collaborator would likely be the first to spread the news if true! But with ABH, it is suspect since they seem really committed to adhering to LE/P status (e.g. Mario palette).

OMG, I don’t know why I checked it, I think because I gave my extra Mario palette away & was curious, but the prices people are charging for it on Amazon are straight up criminal!!! Like $300! For the Mario palette! That’s just insane & those people must be morally bankrupt to do that.

I finally understood what you meant by it being “suspect” bc of the LE/P status. LOL so cray.

No doubt it is a beautiful palette ,it’s stunning when swatched but I cant really apply these with a fan brush , I am still trying to figure out how to blend it nicely so that it looks less shimmery on my face.

One thing is for sure – fan brushes make a huge mess in this palette!!! My go-to is a fan brush bc I like a more “subtle” highlight (lol it’s not subtle at all!), but with these pans I need to use an actual highlighter brush or I get particles EVERYWHERE.
