I knew I didn’t need another highlighting product, let alone a palette. But the heart wants what it wants. And the second I saw the Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit swatches, I knew it would be welcome in my family.

So you might have noticed it by now.. but my palette is semi-broken *insert tears.* I was so excited to get this. But when I opened it up, a cloud of highlighter escaped, and I was left with its remnants. It was a glowy mess. But, I still wanted to get this review up so you could see swatches, and read up on it if you’re interested in getting this guy.

The only other Glow Kit I can compare this to is Sun Dipped, which I held out on for so long. Then, I finally cracked. And I’m glad I cracked again because the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit is going to become one of my go to’s. This is one thing I am sure of at the moment.

The formula is very silky and smooth, like the Sun Dipped palette. And it’s not patchy, powdery or chalky. Those are three major “no no’s” for me when I try a new highlighter. They apply smoothly and pigmented with a brush. And you can easily pack on more if you want a super intense glow. I would say they’re slightly more metallic than Sun Dipped, and they have more sparkle. But, they’re not chunky and they don’t look unnatural on the skin.

I think this palette would be great for all skin tones because they say you can use this on the eyelids as well. And I love that it has some unique shades like Kitty Kat, Forever Lit, and Daydream. Plus, Forever Lit satisfies my need for an outer-spacey-alien-glow without being too much; it’s just enough. Forever Young, Glo Getter, and 143 are really beautiful and more “normal.” I love these shades, but on me they do end up looking very similar– especially when applied on the face with a brush– so I wish they were a little more different to amp up the variety. But, they are beautiful and I love mixing and matching all the shades.

The packaging really gives me heart eyes. I love the pink color they chose, but I do wish it came with a mirror. I guess I will continue to keep my fingers crossed, and hope they add mirrors to their products in the future. Another thing I’m not a huge fan of is that their Glow Kits, and a lot of their products, are made in China. They’re sneaky and say Made in PRC  instead of flat out saying China. I wish they weren’t made there, but I will say that they’re still good quality. It’s a pet peeve of mine that personally is a little off putting when it comes to makeup. But obviously not enough because I do buy their products.

If you’re a highlighter junkie, then I think you need to add this to your wishlist. But don’t sleep on it because it is limited edition.

  • I really like the look of this palette, pretty much for the same reasons as yours: I like the mix between daring and more classical shades and I also believe that a lot of them will look good on my fair skin. It goes right into my wishlist!!

  • What a shame that it all shattered into pieces!! But yet so beautiful xx

  • I think this collaboration is a win. Maybe I would prefer two lighter shades intead of one, but it is still a beautiful palette.

  • Did you managed to return it or get them to send another palette because this arrived broken? I personally am not getting this, I’m done with highlighter palette.

  • I’ve always wanted to give ABH highlighters ago this looks amazing but I just can’t justify the price, would you say these highlighters are better than drugstore at getting the glowest finish?

  • Ah I feel like I need this one to round out my collection, but I’m not so sure about the shades on my fair skin. Your swatches are selling me though! So sad it arrived broken, I hope CS was helpful.

  • I was devastated when I saw the pictures of the broken palette.. I hope you get a refund! That’s not useable imho. The shades are very pretty, but I think they’re a bit too “colorful” for my skin tone. By the way your photography and styling is to-die-for as always. <3

  • Oh no, so sad that it came broken :( Regardless, it’s still such a pretty palette. The shades are beautiful. I’ve been trying to hard not to fall into this highlighter trap, but all the good reviews are tempting me!

    That’s a pretty palette but I think I’m gonna go for the Laura Mercier Fall in Love face illuminators :) I’m so sorry your powders are broken, though! If it were me, I’d cry!

    That’s such a shame it arrived in that state! The colours are fab – I love that there’s a mix of icy, pink and warm shades

    The shades are so gorgeous! From the first picture, Forever Lit actually almost looked TOO white for me but I love it in the swatches.

  • Oh dear…I’ve seen so many pictures of people receiving this palette all smashed up inside. Such a shame. I am quite happy with my tiny highlighter collection so this is a no for me xxx

  • I absolutely love your pics!! Too bad it came in damage though, it looks so pretty!

  • This palette looks so so beautiful, how gutting for you that it arrived smashed though! I would probably have cried haha. Isn’t there some way you can complain/return it? xo

    Love, Catherine

  • Nicole’s palette looks great, sad about it breaking in the mail!

    xo,

  • It’s such a shame that it arrived broken, I’m pretty sure I would have cried haha! It is such a beautiful palette though! x

  • Every single shade looks great on your skin!

  • Ahh still such a shame that your came shattered. I agree that the highlighters are nice and buttery – I love Sun Dipped and I’m excited for warmer weather to come around so I’ll have some color back in my skin to use the palette! I’m sure I could use it now but I’m so pale that its just a touch too pigmented for me right now.

    The shades on this look beautiful and Kitty Kat looks like a gorgeous pink!

  • So beautiful! And so tragic that yours got cracked :(

  • So sorry about cracks! You know, you are not alone as I have heard a lot of complaints from Sephora customers – many people have received shattered palettes. Maybe there was an issue with pans or something like that. I have Sun Dipped but rarely ever use it; it emphasizes texture on my skin and I also don’t get why write PRC instead of China. I think price for these ABH palettes should be reduced. Colours are amazing though, I really like those pink toned shades! Thanks for such an honest review xx

    This highlighter palette looks absolutely stunning! I’ve been umming and uhhing about the Anastasia highlighter kits but this one has definitely swayed me.

    Noooo Nida, this post should have come with a warning, I nearly cried when I saw it smashed haha. I love the shades in this and how they look. I was disappointed by the Ultimate Glow Kit so worried this would be similar but it doesn’t look like it. I’d love to add this to my collection X

  • You have totally convinced me! I’ve been on the fence and umming and ahhing about this since it’s release, but I think I will just go ahead and pick it up, for fear of major regrets afterwards 😩 Lovely review, I adore your writing style, and your photography is always fantastic!
