Rose Gold

Anastasia Rose Gold Liquid Glow Highlighter ($25.00 for 0.68 oz.) is a rich, reddish-copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, spreadable, and gel-like texture that was easy to apply to bare skin and diffuse with fingertips or brushes. Over complexion products, it blended out best with a brush, which didn’t lift up my base, but fingertips seemed to be more prone to slight lifting (and normally, fingertips are my preferred tool for liquid highlighters). It had a stronger, more metallic sheen that didn’t smooth out my skin texture but did not accentuate it either (right on the line–if you have more texture, you may find it emphasizing!). It wore well for eight hour son me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.68 oz. - $36.76 Per Ounce

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.

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 (and in the brand’s videos, it seemed like the models were wearing foundation). 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.

Penny

Anastasia Penny Liquid Glow Highlighter ($25.00 for 0.68 oz.) is a bright, medium, copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but the fluid consistency made it possible to apply less for sheerer coverage if preferred., The texture was spreadable on bare skin and over liquid foundation, though I found stippling brushes to be more forgiving when I worked with this shade on top of base products to ensure no lifting of my base while moving and blending the highlighter out. It blended out fairly evenly, but it could have been a bit easire to work with overall. The finish was moderate in shine–a little dewy but it dried down so there was no tackiness left behind–and not as overtly metallic as Patina. The color lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.

Luna

Anastasia Luna Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of silver, white gold, and gold pearl and larger sparkle. As expected based on the brand’s description of the new shade, it had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage with a moderate amount of sparkle paired with a glossy finish. There was a slightly milky quality to the underlying base, but it did not settle as badly in my lips as some of the other shades from the fall shades. The texture was smooth and lightweight, almost creamy, and comfortable to spread over my lips and to wear. This shade wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Estella

Anastasia Estella Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a soft, peachy beige base with multi-colored flecks of sparkle and pearl. It’s one of five new glosses that’s designed to be sparkling and for layering (“aren’t created to deposit pigment/color, they deposit dimensional light catching pearls”), so the sheer to semi-sheer coverage was as expected.

While the sparkling effect was lovely with a moderate level of “coverage” via the shimmer and sparkle, the underlying base was rather milky and settled into all of my lip lines. From afar, it didn’t look as bad as the shine and shimmer distracted from the settling, but I was quite surprised–and disappointed–at how badly it sat in my lip lines. The texture was smooth, mostly non-sticky, and comfortable to wear, and I started to feel a bit of the sparkles’ texture in the last hour of wear. It stayed on well for three hours and was lightly hydrating.

Violet

Anastasia Violet Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep purple with subtle, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It was slightly muted, which made it less dupable compared to other purple liquid lipsticks I’ve come across. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly in a single layer. The consistency was smooth, fluid, but not too runny or thin, so I didn’t have issues applying it to my lips. The liquid lipstick dried down within 30 seconds, but it did have a clingier dry down that emphasized the texture of my lips. This shade stayed on well for six and a half hours but was slightly drying over time.

Patina

Anastasia Patina Liquid Glow Highlighter ($25.00 for 0.68 oz.) is a rich, deep copper with warm, brown undertones and fine, golden pearl. It had an intense shine on my skin, which did emphasize my skin’s natural texture when worn at medium or higher coverage. The consistency was smooth, fluid without being too thin or watery, and was easy to spread across my bare skin with fingertips or a brush. When I applied it over liquid foundation, it was better applied with a stippling brush as fingertips lifted up my base slightly (but nowhere near as badly as I experienced when this formula first launched). This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me.
