The Anastasia Beverly Hills illuminators have become very popular! With people raving how good they are I was desperate to get my hands on one. I purchased mine from BeautyBay.com, on BeautyBay they have two different shades available: ‘Riviera’ and ‘Peach Nectar’ – but of course there are other shades available elsewhere.
I chose the shade ‘Riviera’, as it is described as ” A pale champagne pink with rose undertones and golden and silver highlights”. This did appeal to me more as I do prefer these types of tones and colours, the ‘Peach Nectar shade is more described as a champagne beige with golden undertones and a touch of silver, which if I’m honest for me all sounds a bit to golden.
As first impressions go as soon as I opened this I was quite shocked as to how golden in colour it is, however as I took a swatch and later put in onto my skin did I realise that the rose undertones are there, they’re just very subtle.

As you can see from the swatch picture on the left above this illuminator is very pigmented! but, as you can see on the swatch picture to the right above it blends out VERY well and very even. The level of pigmentation within this illuminator is quite unbelievable, I mean I personally have never owned or used an illuminator of this quality before, it is absolutely beautiful!
What do you think to this illuminator?
