Just how late to the party am I? When common sense prevailed and I didn’t cave and get the Too Faced Born This Way foundation and concealer, I felt really proud of myself that I could work through my 138 other foundations and concealers first.

Yes, it’s true. I am addicted to highlighter and no, I’m not sorry one little bit. The hotly anticipated collaboration between Queen of Brows Anastasia Soare and YouTube sensation Nicole Guerriero made me very excited from the moment it was announced. As a huge lover of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminators and Glow Kits, I could not wait for the launch, especially now that you don’t have to order from the USA. If you didn’t know, Anastasia Beverly Hills now have a UK depot that stocks most items from the collection. I’m still waiting for them to stock the liquid…
