Review | Anastasia Beverly Hills × Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit

Hello my beautiful and glowing goddesses. I’m finally going to be doing my review on the Nicole Guerriero glow kit. The product released on March 3rd, but Sephora had a pre-sale on the app. I was able to get this product on March 2nd. I’ve had this product for over a week and I’m ready to give you all my thoughts on this palette. I’m a big admirer of Nicole Guerriero, so I immediately knew that I would purchase this product. I’ve been watching Nicole’s videos since she had that bright red, Rihanna hair.

I don’t have any qualms about her chrarcter, because I knew that she wouldn’t cut corners with her product. I like to support bloggers as much as I can, but in my opinion A LOT of brands tend to lower the quality of collab products. Ever since a few bloggers have come under fire for lackluster collaborations, I hesitate before buying into the hype. I wasn’t worried about this product being subpar, because I know that Claudia works hard to make sure that all products that ABH comes out with are amazing.

The Packaging

The picture does not do the packaging justice. In person the palette has multi colored shimmers and it’s radiant. It has the standard cardboard glow kit packaging, but it doesn’t feel cheap. I know that when brands to use cardboard packaging, It’s a fine line between feeling cheap and feeling like a quality product. The writing is in holographic print.

The Glow Kit

This glow kit has the same sturcture of the Ultimate Glow Kit that came out last holiday season. Altough the Ultimate Glow Kit had a mirror and the Nicole kit does not. It comes with six pans of powder, which can be used on the face and eyes for $40 usd. The palette is a warmer highlighting palette, which looks amazing on medium to deeper skin tones.

If you are lighter/fair skinned person, you could get away with forever lit, kitty kat and forever young. You could always mix forever lit with any of the other powders to lighten them up. I have a medium skintone with yellow undertones, so I could get away with using this entire palette and it wouldn’t look crazy on me. If you don’t like warmer pinks and bronze powders, then this palette will not be for you. I would recommend the sundipped glow kit instead.

Swatches & Texture of Powders

Left to Right:

  • Kitty Kat (milky pink with silver reflects)
  • Forever Young (neutral pink with white reflects)
  • Daydream (warm peachy pink)
  • Forever Lit (white with lilac shimmer)
  • Glo Getter (light rosy champagne)
  • 143 (bronze gold)

Even though these powders do have reflects in them, they don’t appear to be extremely glittery on the skin. If you had the ultimate glow kit, they both look similar in the pan; they do not have the same feeling and texture when using a brush. Ultimate glow kit was definitely a glitter bomb and sheer on the skin. This glow kit has the same feeling as the powders in the sweets glow kit, so if you have that one it feels and looks exactly the same is the powders in that Glow Kit.

Product Weight & Cost

This palette contains 6 x 0.16 oz/ 4.5 grams of product per pan and it’s $40 for the palette. In the regular 4 pan glow kits, each individual pan weighs 7 grams and the palette also costs $40. You are getting less product per pan in the Nicole glow kit, but you are receiving two more colors.

Grade: A+

I do think that the colors in this glow kit are unique to themselves. The only glow kit that I did see a bit of crossover was the gleam glow kit, starburst is similar to kitty kat. If you wan’t highlighting powders that have a high shine and give a glossy look to the face, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick it up. The powders are metallic and if you aren’t a fan of that, just skip this.

♥XOXO♥, Crystal Emme
