This July, Anastasia Beverly Hills added a lot of new products to their collection including this Liquid Glow Highlighter. Among the new products released was also the new controversial ‘subculture’ eyeshadow palette as well as a huge range of 30 Matte Lipsticks. Yes, this launch was a big one! If you haven’t already read my review of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipsticks, you can read my review here.
The Liquid Glows released are currently available in four different shades: Perla, Oyster, Peach Fizz and Bronzed. The price for these are $25USD each directly from the Anastasia Beverly Hills website.
As always, the look of the packaging is classic and beautiful. The bottle is a plastic tube with a twist lid so depending on your preference this may or may not be travel friendly. For the price, you get 20ml of product which I think is reasonable. You only need to use the tiniest amount so even if you used this on a daily basis, it is going to last a long time! It has a thick texture and by all means not runny which helps to control how much product you want to use.
The shade I purchased was Perla which is a nice light champagne color. My first impression was good as you get a decent of product for the price and a little seems to go a long way (which I learned the hard way, oops!). You really only need a few specks to apply this, by all means do not go overboard!
I tried applying this with a Beauty blender, a brush and my fingers. I personally found that the beauty blender was not a good choice as it picked the product back up. The best way to apply this liquid highlighter is with your fingers. When I applied with a make up brush, I ended up spreading it to more areas than I intended.
After I blended it properly with my fingers, it looked really nice and quite blinding. It’s not a glittery highlight and gives a beautiful glow. There is the tiny bit of shimmer but nothing intense or too noticeable.
I feel like this product would wear nicely on dryer skin. I have combination skin and some days I am more oily than others. So generally, apart from my foundation, I will usually avoid liquid products. I found that it wasn’t completely transfer proof but that could come down to my skin type. However, I did love how this highlighter looked. For now though, I feel my skin is a bit too oily to handle a liquid highlighter.
This honestly is a blinding glow and if you like liquid products, I think you will honestly love how this looks. It did not enhance any fine lines or pores on me which I loved. It also wasn’t cakey and looked quite natural on the skin when blended out properly.
The key to making this look it’s best is go in very, VERY lightly and carefully build it up as you go.
All in all, I think it’s a great product and I will likely use this again when my skin isn’t as oily.
