13 Nov Review, Photos, Swatches, Makeup Trend 2017, 2018: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Glow Highlighter, Matte Lipstick
Shades Pictured: Bronzed (Metallic Amber) and Perla (Champagne Platinum)
The Liquid Glow Highlighter is a weightless liquid highlighter that imparts an intense glow with a lustrous finish. It is a concentrated, full-pigment liquid formula that effortlessly blends into your skin and with your other favorite complexion products. You can also layer it with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit for a high-impact, radiant sheen. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
As someone who has textured skin, sometimes highlighters can really be hit or miss because they tend to accentuate pores, scars, fine lines, wrinkles, etc. Since this is a liquid formula, it blends effortlessly into the skin and looks much more natural as it sits on the skin. However, don’t be mistaken – these are not natural finish highlighters. If you’re looking to glow like the moon, this is definitely for you! These are high intensity highlighters. I like to dab a little bit of powder highlighter on top to set it in place. You could also mix a tiny bit of this in with your foundation for a glowing, dewy look. They last all day without having to touch them up! Perla is a great highlighter shade for my skin tone and Bronzed is more of a glowy bronzer but if you’re of a deeper complexion, Bronzed would be a great highlighter for you.
Shades Pictured: Cobalt (Cobalt Blue), Orchid (Vivid Orchid Pink), and Soft Pink (Blushing Petal Pink)
The Matte Lipsticks are full-pigment lip color with a smooth, ultra-matte finish. Get beautiful, classic matte lips in a flash with this highly pigmented formula. The comfortable formula provides a soft, elegant, and long-lasting finish in enough shades to satisfy any lip aficionado. They are formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. For a lacquer finish, pair with your favorite lip gloss, or for a metallic finish, pair with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit. As you can see from the swatches, Cobalt doesn’t apply as smooth as Orchid or Soft Pink but it is still a very nice color and a great shade of blue if you’re looking for one!
If you’re looking for a super pigmented matte lipstick, these are definitely for you. There are a ton of shades to choose from also. They apply smoothly with a slight drag because of the matte formula but are ultimately very comfortable to wear on your lips throughout the day. The staying power is very nice due to the matte formula. I would definitely recommend making sure your lips are hydrated and exfoliated before applying these products because matte formulas tend to accentuate any dry spots you might have on your lips.
