Anastasia Beverly Hills Iced Out highlighter review, swatch
This is a beautiful highlighter and the first product I’ve been legitimately excited to try in a long while. Yet I’m torn as to how much I actually like it as a highlighter.
The texture and design is beautiful and the pattern gets a golden shine in the sunlight.
Here is a texture shot:
- This is so gorgeous both when looking at the product presentation and embossing, and when swatching it. It shifts depending on how the light hits, ranging from silvery to smooth shimmery pale gold, to sparkly gold.
- However because of the sparkle effect (it’s very fine sparkle however, not chunky at all), I don’t think it looks great on natural-face days. You don’t see the sparkle from every angle and lighting, but the fear of looking like a disco-ball on natural-look days is definitely there 😅
- I purchased this from Ulta on release day and I used a promo gift card along with points, so I’m still happy with my purchase. However I would not have paid full price for it.
Here is a swatch on fair/very light skin:
✅ So, in conclusion, I would recommend this highlighter both as a pretty collector’s piece and also for those who like their highlight to be noticeable. I would not recommend it if you’re unsure and prefer a very natural glow.
