Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator – Peach Nectar and Riviera

 

Yup I did it, I fell for the hype.  I truly need someone to come slap my credit card out of my hand and tell me no more highlighters because I really have a problem.  I fought the urge to buy these for weeks but I just couldn’t resist anymore and I decided that I had to have two.

from L to R:  Peach Nectar, Riviera

Let me tell you these are so gorgeous!  I love the packaging and the product itself is silky smooth to the touch.  A little definitely goes a long way with these and you barely have to sweep your brush across to get full color payoff.  Amazing!

Final Thoughts:  Now after reading for a minute you would probably think that I love these, I sure thought that I would, but I didn’t.  Now don’t get me wrong, the formula is great, the packaging is stunning but the shades just don’t suit my personal preference.  They are a bit to cool on my skintone.  I like a more golden highlight and these just weren’t great for me.  I’m keeping them (because I’m a hoarder) and I will definitely work them into my makeup looks but these are just a like for me and not a love.  I would still recommend them though because the formula really is pretty awesome.  So, if you like the tones/shades get them, they are worth the money.

Quick Note:  I tried Peach Nectar again a few different ways and it looked a lot better when I skipped an under eye highlight.  Sitting on my foundation shade only, it wasn’t nearly as light as it was on top of my concealer highlight.  It also looks lovely on the bridge of the nose.

I’m wearing Peach Nectar on the cheekbones, down the center of my nose, on my forehead and on my cupid’s bow.

Did you grab any of the ABH Illuminators?  If so, what shade did you get and did you love them?
