Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit Review and Swatches

Anastasia recently released a couple new Glow palettes. I purchased the Moonchild glow kit for myself.

This is the first one I have used. I don't have any of the prior glow kits to compare.

I love a good highlighter and have quite a few of them but for some reason was never interested in the previous glow kits until I saw the Moonchild glow kit. 


Artificial light 

What drew me to this one was just how different it looked compared to anything else out there. 

Natural light 

L to R - Blue Ice, Star, Purple Horseshoe, Pink Heart, Lucky Clover, and Blue Moon

These highlighters are so unique and stunning!! 

They all have either a duochrome effect or have shimmer/shift. 

You really can't see the full effect of these highlighters in photos. I have a swatch video on my Instagram so you can really see how they shift and reflect!

Blue Ice is a pearl white with a violet blue shift and silver sparkles in it.

Star is a straight up silver highlight. There are no sparkles in this one.

Purple Horseshoe is a blue-ish purple with blue and silver flecks.

Pink Heart is a cream with a duo chrome pink shift and silver flecks.

Lucky Clover is probably my favorite! It's a gold with a green duochrome shift! Love it!!!

Blue Moon is a silver with a bit more blue tone to it compared to Star. It has very faint pink flecks in it.

Like I said previously these are so unique. It's not something you would expect in a highlight.

When I wear it you see a nice "glow" but in certain lighting when you move your head you'll all of sudden catch that unexpected shift of color in the highlight.

Honestly I feel like a beautiful alien when I wear this! Lmao! I know it sounds unappealing to some but I love how different it is. It's just very galactic and cool. 

If you're not into it as a highlight you can also use these as eye shadows. These are amazing all over the lid or my favorite way to wear them on the eyes is as inner corner highlights. 

These are all nicely pigmented and apply evenly on my face. They last a good four to five hours. They never completely fade away but the highlight isn't as visible after some wear and sweat because it's been hot as hell in California lately! 

Blue Ice and Purple Horseshoe have a more chunkier sparkle in them and those will fallout all over your face after some wear so I just wanted to note that. Even with applying directly where you want it, after some time and you look in the mirror you will see blue flecks all over your face. This doesn't really bother me. Give me all the sparkles!! :D

I'm very happy with my purchase. I don't know how this palette compares to her other glow kits in pigmentation but this one is great. I know she has around four other glow kits which are much more wearable and natural in tone. So you can definitely find one that suits your needs.

You can find the Moonchild glow kit along with the other glow kits on for $40.
