This week I was scrolling through Instagram (follow me here) and Bloglovin (follow me here) and I came across some images of the BRAND NEW Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit's that are being released for Fall 2016. According to different sources, I've found these were to be available in Fall 2016 but have since been launched on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website and will be available exclusively on their website to my recent knowledge.
I will leave all associated links further down in the post when I talk about each product specifically because I know so many ladies and gentlemen are going to want to grab these NOW before they sell out. So let's jump into things...

And like any beauty addict when I saw these two palettes the first thing I wanted to see was swatches! I went onto Google and did some crazy searching and went onto some other blogs who love to share new product releases like this post and I actually found some swatches from TrendMood1 - yes, I know the controversy surrounding this Instagram account and while I do believe some of her actions have been unethical I wanted to provide my readers with the best and most detailed information on this new Anastasia Beverly Hills release.
Below you can see swatches of both the new Moonchilds Palette and Sweets Palette.
When I first came upon the Moonchilds Palette I was a little bit taken back by the blue choice that Anastasia Beverly Hills decided to use in these powders. But after seeing the swatches on various skin tones I'm most excited to try this palette out. I think this palette is going to be BEST suited for fair/light skin tones - but it's makeup so rock whatever you want. Whereas the medium to deep skin tones might find this palette hard to wear as I have a feeling the shades could come of ashy.
As for the Sweets Glow Kit, this one doesn't excite me as much simply because I think there is a lot of overlap in this palette with others in the Anastasia Beverly Hills line. However, because I'm obsessed with this product I can see me going out and purchasing all of the Glow Kit Palettes in this style just to have them. I also think this palette - out of all the Glow Kits - is the most versatile for fair to deep skin tones and if you are looking for just ONE palette to purchase for your collection of Makeup Artistry work I would go for this one!
So, I want to hear your thoughts. Highlighting is a HUGE trend within the beauty community and beauty industry right now and while I've just jumped on the bandwagon and am loving it others might not feel the same way. Do you feel as if there is too many highlighting products out there now? And when it comes to highlighting and these types of products what brand - or brands - do you really think is killing it with their products?
