If you read my Christmas Makeup Haul post, you’d know that I finally got my hands on the ABH Moonchild Glow Kit, something I’d wanted for ages and ages. It seems like the perfect colour selection for pale creative makeup queens, but does it live up to the hype? Keep reading to find out!
So I’ll just start off (as always), by saying that the packaging is so stunning. It has this sort of prismatic rainbow holographic design and I absolutely love it. The logo is metallic and reflective as well, which is a really nice detail.
The packaging on the inside doesn’t disappoint either, as it also has the super cute reflective logo. The palette itself contains 6 funky shades, and I think the pan size is actually really good value. But enough about packaging, let’s get onto the part you’ve all been waiting for…the swatches!
So top to bottom we have: Blue Ice, Star, Purple Horseshoe, Pink Heart, Lucky Clover and Blue Moon. (I’m just gonna quickly butt in and say that I also love the sort of witchy superstitious names as it fits in really well with the palette, just like in the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette, which I reviewed here).
The first one is Blue Ice, a gorgeous glittery ice blue highlight with white and pink glitter running through it. Then we have Star, which is probably the most ‘wearable’ colour from the palette. It’s a really pretty grey/silver glittery highlight and it’s perfectly pale. Then we have Purple Horseshoe, which reminds me a lot of Jeffree Star Lavender Snow (from swatches anyway, I don’t actually own it to properly compare them). It’s a super pretty lavender colour and it has lilac glitter running through it.
Then on row number two we have Pink Heart, which is an absolutely gorgeous metallic pink shade with pink and white glitter running through it. I absolutely love pink highlights so I was super happy with this one. Then we have the super cool and unique Lucky Clover. It’s really well-named as I would sum it up as being a metallic clover green colour with white glitter running through it. It’s really bold and striking, and it’s perfect for someone who likes to get a bit creative with their highlighting (like me for example). Then last but not least we have Blue Moon, which is a darker, more metallic version of Blue Ice, and it also has pink glitter running through it, but it’s a bit more subtle due to it being a more metallic shade than a shimmery one. It’s a really nice cool-toned blue metallic highlight.
Overall, as you can see all of these highlights are pigmented and unique, they glide on really smoothly and they sit really nicely on the skin. I like that the palette has both more glittery shades and more metallic ones as it gives you a nice balance; for me it’s just such a wearable palette that fits my skin tone perfectly. It helps me with my goal of putting as much colour on my face as possible, and it gives me a highlighter for every icy mood!
