So if you didn't catch it last night, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Norvina gave us our first look at two new Glow Kits and OMG they are to die for! I loved everything from the colours to the ad campaign. If you would like to hear a little bit more about the products and my thoughts on them, them please keep reading ...


Where do I begin? Moonchild is LIFE, would you just look at these colours. This palette shines Norvina to me - she puts her soul into every product but these shades are actually how I imagine her soul to look. The Palette has six shades in total; two metallic shine highlights and four Refleck's shades (shades with both a top and reflective tones seen usually in loose pigments) - a first for ABH. Ah and their names; Blue Ice, Star, Purple Horseshoe, Pink Heart, Lucky Clover and Blue Moon.

Sweets Glow Kit reminds me a lot of the Gleam Glow Kit, which is my favourite. I never thought I'd be into pinky highlights but I find myself reaching for Gleam every day!! This is why I'll definitely adding Sweets to my collection. This Kit is more like the original Glow Kits; containing four (huge btw) pans - Marshmallow, Sassy Grape, Taffy and Butterscotch.

Both of this kits will retail at $40 and (for now at least) will be exclusively available on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website. This is kind of bad news for us ABH lovers as their international shipping rates are pricey at $17.95 (although to be fair its a good service and packages are received within the week). They ship through UPS meaning that they handle the delivery the entire way, from the US to the UK, although this means quicker service it means higher customs costs. I believe that UPS add a standard handling charge of £14 (compared to Royal Mail's £8) on top of the duty to be paid - the last (and only) package I ordered from ABH direct came with a whooping £34 handling and customs charge!!

Now for the best bit .... The ad campaign!!

How F**king stunning is this!?!
Make up is genderless and it's so great to see big brands recognising and supporting this. One of the reasons I love ABH so much is the inclusiveness of their brand.

Norvina tweeted that 'Moonchild and Sweets aren't created for a particular skin type, they're makeup junkie candy. No rules this time, just dimension and fantasy' another reason why ABH is my favourite brand in the game!

Once again both kits are available exclusively on the ABH website and are live now! No word on whether they are limited or perminant or if they will be coming to UK stockists as of yet. I'll be sure to update you on social media when more info is released (@makeupwithjayxo on twitter and IG)

What do you think of the new Glow Kits? Will you be adding any them to your collection? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Thank you so much for reading,
