Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator 'So Hollywood' | Review

Hello! ♥

Anastasia Beverly Hills So Hollywood Illuminator

I was contemplating on whether or not to post this just because it's so difficult to get hold of these ABH Illuminators these days, but I thought I'd go ahead with it anyways because I am absolutely in love with this product after owning it for months and months.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator So Hollywood review

The shade 'So Hollywood' is a true gold, both in the pan and also when applied. I'm able to achieve the most beautiful glistening highlight with this and it just has this beautiful metallic finish that I love. My highlight stands out SO much because of how intense this product is, but it honestly just looks amazing. You can totally tone it down if you prefer a more subtle highlight, too!

Whilst the highlighter is super pigmented, the formula is also incredibly soft and smooth.. meaning you only need to apply the tiniest amount! Also, I'm not sure if it's the pattern on the powder that makes it so easy for my brush to pick up the product or if it's the actual formula, but I don't need to swirl my brush in it at all.. I literally just dab a fluffy brush in and apply!
This highlighter blends in with ease, so it doesn't just sit on the skin like some others can.

As always when it comes to ABH packaging, I love the simple but beautiful packaging of the illuminator. The powder comes encased in a black compact with the ABH logo on the top, and includes a mirror inside! I've got to admit that the packaging doesn't actually feel very sturdy, but at least it looks really sleek!
