Remember me?! I’m so sorry I’ve neglected the blog, I’ve just really been focused on The Lipstick Diaries these past few months! If you didn’t know already I run an Instagram where I do daily lipstick swatches and reviews! It’s been so much fun and I recently passed 10k followers! But I have missed the blog and I really want to try and bring the two together. I’m thinking of posting more in-depth lipstick reviews, focusing on the packaging, the claims of a line, etc. I’ve even included a page with my full lipstick collection and links to each review, so don’t forget to check that out!
I hope you like the redesign as well! I actually used a lipstick to create the new header and I’m so happy with the way it turned out! There’s still a few tweaks I need to make, but I couldn’t wait any longer to get it back up and running!
Now onto the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit! Isn’t it just gorgeous? It retails for $40 and I believe it’s currently only available on their website. For quite some time I wasn’t the biggest fan of highlighters, but recently I can’t get enough. I tend to prefer a more cool toned highlight, but it seems as if everything out there is quite warm and yellow toned. So when I spotted this I knew I couldn’t pass it up!
It may not seem like the most wearable palette, but I honestly wear it almost every day. It can be blended out for a more subtle look or you can really build it up and go for it. Here’s how the website describes each shade: Blue Ice – Diamond white with an icy blue reflect, Star – A moonstone fusion of mint, platinum and silver reflect, Purple Horseshoe – A glittering lavender with an arctic blue reflect, Pink Heart – Pearl white with a pink opal reflect, Lucky Clover – A shamrock-infused gold with canary yellow diamond reflect, and Blue Moon – Frozen blue with a silver reflect.
I’d say my favorite is Purple Horseshoe because it’s such a gorgeous shade, but it is the least wearable so I find myself using Pink Heart the most. The formula is very smooth and not chunky at all. To apply it I use the Slmissglam Small Contour W07 Brush, which I received in one of my Ipsy bags and it’s perfect for highlighter! I also love to use it as an inner corner highlight and I haven’t used them as eyeshadows yet, but I’m sure they’d be gorgeous!

I love all those low light highlighter photos so I had to try my own, wearing Pink Heart!
So if you love a fun, colorful highlight I definitely suggest checking this out, it’s one of my favorite and most used purchases this year!
