Get That Second-Skin Glow With ABH x Amrezy Highlighter

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy collaboration Highlighter

 

What beauty junkie doesn’t love a good highlighter? I’m particularly fussy about mine and prefer a more grown-up approach. I don’t want whacky colours or too much glitter, and it’s a definite no to a white stripe. All I look for is a subtle sheen to literally highlight the high points of my face for more natural, realistic look. One which will take me from day to night with a buildable formula. Not too much to ask for is it? Inevitably, you’ll have to invest money in a good quality product as you know how it is – you tend to get what you pay for in life. The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy collaboration highlighter is no exception.

In case you’re wondering who Amrezy (Amra Olevic) is, I’ll bring you up to speed… Born in Montenegro and starting out as a counter assistant in Sephora, LA dweller Amrezy trained as a makeup artist, left her blog standing in 2014 for the love of Instagram and now has a dedicated 5.5 million followers. Let’s just say she’s influential.

In the words of Amrezy herself…

“I live for the perfect glow – it’s a constant focus in my makeup routine. I’m always looking for the most luminous glow with a natural, second skin finish. This collaboration with ABH brings my highlighter dreams to life, and I’m so happy to share this sun in a compact with my Rezy riders”

This limited edition highlighter in Light Brilliant Gold achieves the perfect glow with that second-skin feel, its ultra smooth formula delivers a radiant finish. The packaging is luxe as you might expect  – housed inside an inner box which folds Perfectly around the mirrored compact. The outer box has a pretty stars design with “Anastasia” taking centre stage. The pan itself has a wave effect which perfectly catches the light and shows off the glow to its full potential.

“There’s just something about swatching a highlighter that gives me the wow factor, it mesmerises”

I like my highlighter to have a dense colour payoff as I hate the bitty effect – you’ll know what I mean. As soon as I swiped my finger across this one and applied it to the back of my hand I was wowed, tried it across my cheekbones and fell in love.

When it comes to my life-long love of makeup I like to keep it real and mix drugstore with high-end, but my heart will always lie with high-end. Buy cheap – buy twice so they say, and I don’t really want to do that. Having said that, this highlighter isn’t hugely overpriced for a substantial product, I would say it sits in the mid-range price bracket at £29 and just impossible to resist. Described as a second-skin feel with its ultra fine formula, that’s seems a pretty accurate description and I found it lasted well on my skin. Highlighter can be deceptive in its appearance as you can’t always see it without turning your head and looking at it with a sideways glance so be careful not to go overboard! Being on the neutral side this would be suitable for most skin tones, I’m pale of course, but my daughter is a little more olive toned and we both wear it well.

If you’re in the market for something a little more indulgent to add to your makeup collection then the Amrezy highlighter is a perfect choice…

Stroke it across your cheekbones and a little on the sides of your forehead and you’ve got the perfect daytime glow. For evening, build it up to a sunglass-worthy gleam”

      It’s definitely much more pigmented than a lot of others I’ve tried. I didn’t mind paying that bit extra for the quality, plus it will last ages as it’s a good sized product. Thanks for reading! x
