OUTFIT: Black & Blues

Review | Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminators

January 5, 2016


I am (and will forever be) a huge Anastasia Beverly Hills fan. It seems that just about every product of hers that's released, I find myself purchasing the second it goes on sale. Her liquid lipsticks are on my list of holy grail products. I knew that when these highlighters came out, they'd be mine.


I decided not to go too overboard (yes, that took a lot of will power, you guys) and I only purchased the three shades that I knew were more likely to work for my skin. I skipped the darkest shade since I'm fifty shades of ghostly and grabbed these three beauties.


Meet "So Hollywood". This was the shade that I was the most excited for and the shade that I find myself grabbing for the most. I believe that if you're going to grab just one of these, then this shade should be it. After using it on many of my clients over the past few months, I've noticed that it truly looks great on every skintone. It's the perfect touch of warmth and shimmer for your cheekbones.


For those of you who fully understand #palegirlprobs, this illuminator will be your new love. "Starlight" is the perfect almost-white highlighter that will have your cheekbones g.l.o.w.i.n.g. This highlight is incredibly light so for those of you with incredibly light skin, it's going to look very nice and natural. On my paler days, "Starlight" is always included in my makeup routine.


This shade I was a little iffy on at first since it does have more color to it and normally I like a highlight that's more natural. But, much to my suprise, when I have some color this shade does work very well with my skin. For someone with a more tan, olive complexion, the little tint of rose gold will look gorgeous on your skin, no doubt.


When I texted my best friend and showed her that I got the three illuminators and this brush, her response was something along the lines of "you're an idiot, you don't need another brush." For Some reason though, I felt like I needed this brush to get the full effect of the highlighters. Yes, I have a million highlighting brushes, but this is my new favorite. Since I purchased this, I've been completely obsessed with it. I use it with every single highlight in my collection and it truly does make the highlight looks it's best. So, ha, in your face Marsia. I really did need this brush.
