Anastasia x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit – Review and SWATCHES! 

The newest edition to the Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighter family is the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit! I wasn’t initially totally sold on the palette as I thought the shades wouldn’t work well with my light skin tone – but after seeing some ‘real life’ swatches on some of my favorite beauty Instagrammers, I knew I could make it work!!

“Get a smooth, even glow that lasts with the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit. Each highlighter has an ultra-fine formula that won’t leave behind shimmer particles. Just layer these shades together or wear them separately on your face, eyes, and body. For even more glow, apply them with a damp makeup brush.”

Does this new glow kit hold up to my high expectations?! Let’s see!!
