Peach Fizz

Anastasia Peach Fizz Liquid Glow ($25.00 for 0.68 fl. oz.) is is a deep brown with warm undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It looked a lot like Bronzed but applied more evenly as it seemed to have less of a base color to it, though there was a very subtle tint to my skin overall. The glow was subtle to light in intensity; I would not have described it as “intense” at all. It was somewhat buildable from sheer to medium coverage applied in layers. The texture was spreadable, not too thick or to thin, and it dried down fully and felt lightweight. I did struggle to use this shade effectively over base products (bare skin was okay), as it did lift some foundation, though not as noticeably as Bronzed or Oyster. On me, the highlighter lasted for seven hours.

It’s supposed to be a “weightless liquid highlighter” that will give “an intense glow” that can be worn “separately on face and body.” The formula was smooth, fluid, and not too thin that it felt overly watery or spread unevenly. I tested it over bare skin for wear, and it did the best there, as it was easier to spread the product out evenly. It dried down fully (no wetness/stickiness) and lasted for a solid seven hours on me before breaking down. The disappointment came when I tried to layer it on top of liquid foundation, as it lifted and moved my foundation quite a bit (I tried it over Tarte Rainforest of the Sea and Guerlain Lingerie de Peau, as well as over lightly set foundation). I also tried mixing it into my liquid foundation for an all-over dewiness, and it definitely added some dewiness.

I watched the brand demo this product after initially applying and getting a very subtle effect, as I had used fingertips for my initial application and they demoed using brushes. I tried using a similar-shaped brush and still saw subtle glow, and I very much tried to mimic the amount that the brand explained was necessary (a little dab!). When I tried to layer and build up the coverage/intensity on bare skin, it was totally doable, but over foundation, it was impossible as it just smeared around, looked clumpy, and lifted my foundation off wherever I applied it. The best application was with a slightly dampened sponge applicator (like a beautyblender) and a soft touch, as it seemed to move the product around the least.

Update (July 2018): The brand launched three additional shades--Patina, Penny, and Rose Gold--and they are significantly different in coverage and application; they are much more pigmented with moderate to high-shine/metallic finishes and are infinitely easier to apply foundation (and still worked well over bare skin). I found that they applied better with brushes as there was still slight patchiness/lifting when I used my fingertips to apply over a base.

Perla

Anastasia Perla Liquid Glow ($25.00 for 0.68 fl. oz.) is a light gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to almost opaque coverage with a second layer (just make sure to let the initial layer dry down fully). The consistency was smooth, thin but not runny or watery that it sheered out too quickly.

This one had actually showed up on camera with a light sheen; more noticeable than the other shades but not an intense highlight at all. When built up, it did appear as a moderate highlighter (but the brand’s own powder highlighters are far more intense on the skin). When I applied it over bare skin, it was fairly easy to work with and went on evenly. When I used it over liquid foundation, there was some lifting of my foundation but significantly less than I experienced with the other three shades. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ooooh, I spy a good one:C+! Amazing that these are so baaaad. Glad I had zero interest. W/ widely acclaimed brow products and MR, quite a few toutable highlighter palettes, one expects better from abh.

The problems you described sound a lot like the issues I had with the Colourpop liquid crystal highlighter. Those just destroyed my foundation, felt greasy, and didn’t leave an impact. But it seems like most of the youtube reviewers out there don’t seem to have a problem so idk there must be some magic trick for these kind of liquid highlights

Interesting to hear but sad as well – have not tried the ColourPop ones yet. Have you tried any other liquid highlighters besides the ColourPop ones?

Yeah, liquid highlight is usually my preferred form since I have dry skin. I really like the Josie Maran Enlightenment Illuminizer, the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops, and the CoverFX enhancing drops…they’re all so beautiful and easy to work with! Not sure what makes these formulas so different

I was looking forward to these 🙁

I tried cover fx’s custom inhancer drops recently. And I fell in love when them. So I was hoping these would be nice! Sad face!

Wow, I’m so glad you reviewed Perla, I was debating the $25 because it looked like Flexitarian from Colourpop on steroids on their Instagram posts! Kind of glad it flopped so I don’t feel tempted to buy it.

Yikes, what is going on with ABH lately?? First the Subculture disaster, and now this. The market is so flooded with great highlighters, it’s so rare to even see a C rating, much less a D or an F. Yikes!!! I think ABH might have to recall Subculture and these highlighters

Finally one that isn’t *too* awful! Perla looks far better than the other three, yet still not something I would buy. Nyx makes far better liquid highlighters than these.

I got Peach Fizz and I love it because it does not emphasize my (very large) pores. I quickly buff it over bare skin/concealer on the way to work, I even dab a bit over my eyelids on no makeup days. It gives me a very healthy glow and it looks very natural.
But I strongly agree, it is not intense at all. I would not recommend mixing this with a moisturizer or foundation, I looked like an idiot.

i liked these guys a lot.. but i don’t wear foudation/ concelaer or any kind of makeup base.. . so i just mixed these with my moisturizer and then added another layer , just patted with finger to intensify them….. they were quite good….and then set my face with powder…..
