@Tamara76 @sarahshter I'm not sure how desperate you guys are for this, but I did see it on a UK-based website (Beauty Box Store). It appears to be a discount site, so I don't know how legit it is. 

Re: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Thread

Thanks!  I will probably wait for it to come back in stock on the direct site.😊  @JenniferOhJenny

Re: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Thread

@Tamara76 Yeah, that's probably your best bet Smiley Happy. But if I see it at Macy's again, I'll let you guys know.

Re: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Thread

Anybody try the new ABH lip palette with the mixing plate yet? How do the colors perform and what are your favorite mixes?

Here's a video I did on the NG glow kit (due to uploading issues I split it in two parts). I blab a lot so if that's not your thing, beware Smiley Very Happy. At the end of part two of my video you can checkout swatches on my skintone. Hope it helps!

Re: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Thread

Do you guys think that this new highlighting palette has a better quality than their other glow palettes? I have one of them, that glow, and never reach for it. A few of the shades adds texture to my face and kind of brings out pores I didn't know I had lol.

Also, is it unique? Looking at the swatches I thought of the estee edit palette and wonder if those dupe to this? The LE status is making me wonder if I should or shouldn't get it.

I wouldn't say better quality necessarily- more of a slightly different texture/quality. I had That Glow and ended up returning it last year since I broke out with it- but I did reach for it all the time and miss it so bad to this day but finally got over it because I now own Sun Dipped and the new NG (also the Ultimate Glow kit which I rarely reach for). That Glow made my skin look wet without any sort of shimmer or emphasizing pores etc. I got along with it but my skin had issues at the time.

 

I just got my ABH x NG and tried it yesterday since I filmed a video (which I have to re upload -SIGH-)...But I swatched it and the shades are more metallic and shimmery than That Glow. They highlights appear more intense especially if applied with a denser brush (which would probably lead to a streak of highlight on your face).

 

But I find the quality is on par with the regular glow kits (stayed on my cheeks all day and apply nicely) though the texture might be slightly different with a more metallic finish as I mentioned above. The shades also have some shimmer but it's like micro-glitter and not completely chunky. I find the first two shades (Kitty Cat and Forever Young) to look similar to one another (pinky shades) and the last two (Glo getter and 143) are similar to one another as well (gold shades) when swatched out even though they appeared different in the pan. I almost feel this newer one would emphasize texture if applied heavily due to it being metallic. I would have to try my Estee Edit against the NG palette and get back to you. Though, I don't think the Estee has shimmer particles in it.

 

Limited edition things sucker me in too! Just look at the shades closely to see if it's something you would wear. Daydream is a peachy/orange-y shade and I haven't tried it on my face but swatched out it did look quite unique. @misscg HTH!!

 

Note: If you're addicted to highlight just get it before you regret it because you know...FOMO happens lol Smiley Very Happy

@jesscheems thanks for replying!! I ended up getting it the other day while in store. FOMO is real lol. I like this one better than the That Glow kit and I haven't noticed it emphasizing my pores. Funny thing is I'm not more interested in natural looking luminzers and wanted to get the Dior or NARS....but FOMO...smh. Those are le too I think....

Re: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Thread

Did I miss the restock of the NG palette? /.-

My ABH palette came today! I got gypped on the lip samples (like many others), but I'm glad my palette arrived in one piece (unlike many others). I'm a sucker for highlighters, so I just had to snag this. No regrets! Love it!

FYI, though, for those thinking about purchasing: my only qualm is that since it *specifically* states it won't leave behind "shimmer particles," I feel you might want to know that it definitely, definitely doesn't live up to this claim. It does, in fact, leave behind glitter. I'm okay with that--- I love me some glitter. But others might not be, and if you're planning on purchasing expecting a no-glitter highlighting palette, it will not deliver on that front unfortunately!

Great pic @khaleesi. I am still debating seriously hard, on whether to get this or not.
