This isn’t technically an eyeshadow palette but it is being included as a bonus palette purely as it is due for launch in the next few days! The latest glow kit from ABH is too pretty not to mention, it contains six new highlight shades ranging from peaches to blues. The unusual and unique shades are a little brighter than its sister palette, Moon Child and are highly pigmented. These shades are not so much for that ‘natural glow’, think more otherworldly and astrological! Anastasia Beverly Hills do have a UK website and Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty are official UK stockists of the brand and it is assumed due to other launches that they will be stocking the Aurora Glow Kit in the coming months. You will be able to purchase the palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills US site but shipping fees will apply.
