Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit Swatches and Review


Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit



I must admit that I'm one guilty of the overthinking, and because of that, I was late to the Glow Kit party. Can you believe it? OMG Nope I don't have any of the original glow kits
Part of that is because
I live in the Netherlands, and here only Sun Dipped (way too dark for me) and Gleam (also pretty dark for me ) where available. And that only in the online stores. I didn't want to go that far on ordering one overseas, and to top it I had my heart divided between That Glow and Sweets. Is freaking hard to make a choice when you can't swatch. Well, one thing leads to another I waited till they weren't available to the market anymore. dang
Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit


Last summer during vacation, I  swatched and tried the Sun Dipped one from Daphne's  Cosmetic Snob. And while the colors were indeed too dark for me (bronzed) but the formulation was beautiful and photographed gorgeously.
When the Ultimate Glow came out, I  was quite disappointed by the swatches ( as seen on Instagram and youtube). I mean I'm 40-something I can't ( and I don't like) to wear chunks of glitter over my face.

At the beginning of March, Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighter family added the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit. Watched literally every teaser on youtube and Instagram and I was sold.
For the ones who doesn't know (is there anyone who doesn't know her??!?) Nicole Guerriero is a great youtube-er with over 2 million subscribers.
So, I did order it from Anastasia Website directly. Placed the order on a Friday and Monday got my products delivered at home.
I ordered the Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit and the Mini Lip Gloss Set  Summer had to pay a $68.00 and $17.95 in shipping, also paid around 14 euro on import duties. So altogether it wasn't cheap, but hey I have an ABH glow kit (at last)

How do you use it
On the higher points on your face, or any parts you want to be highlighted. You can layer multiple shades or apply them separately on face and body for a luminous metallic glow.For added intensity, apply with a damped makeup brush or sponge.
You can use it also as eyeshadow, is gorgeous


For the more intense look I try it with  MAC Fix+ and Zoeva Brush 114

Final thoughtsNicole Guerriero Glow Kit is reminiscent of the original kits but quite not the same formula; the colors are stunning, and they are buttery, I did not experience lots of fallout but is a tiny little bit chunkier than the original ones. I could see the glitter on my face in daylight.
Photographs gorgeous, last on face the whole day ( i use it with NYX dewy finish spray)





wearing the day dream on the highest points of my face and a dash of forever young on my eyelid both  applied with dry brush

close up, in day light


with close up you can see the glitter  (and my wrinkles as bonus lol )

  8. As a beauty blogger, I have to say I love your blog review. The flatlays, swatches, ingredient list and pictures of how the highlighter looks slayed me! I didn't think there was a need of 6 highlighters until I read your post. I think it's a good product!

  11. what a nice review! Thank you for all the info. I also overthink my purchases.I believe is wiser. The companies and the marketing push us like "you are missing out", hey wait! It is my money, and I want to choose the thing that suit me best! This palette is likely to last you very long time, it better be THE ONE for you, right? you've done an excellent choice, and no, you are no late to the party at all! xx

  14. As usual your reviews are detailed and the swatches give us a clearer insight into the actual pigmentation/ consistency of the palettes. I like the look of the first colour and daydream. Daydream is perfect for warming up your cheeks x
