If you haven’t known about the HOLYGRAIL JOURNEY highlighter palette season 02 – episode 01 isabout all BECCA Shimmer Pressed Highlighter palette – 3 shade of it, click here to read. Moonstone, Opal and Champagne pop. On this HOLYGRAIL JOURNEY Season 02, I will also talked about the BECCA Prosecco Pop. I did purchased it, during the time, when beauty industry starting to talked about this palette. I was so busy, and still have to thinking what to talk about this palette because this isn’t all about review.
THE GLOW KIT PALETTE
All pretty and glitter pink, for sure. I thought that forever lit won’t work in my skin tone BUT I try to use Real Techniques fan brush, it work perfectly. I already used all of the 6 highlighter and it all work. No problem at all, no powdery at all, by fact it’s very well pigmented and I love it.
From ABH: Metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity. Complementing shades can be layered together to brighten cheekbones or décolletage, or worn separately over eyelids, browbones and inner corners of the eyes.
This palette is sweet glitter kind of palette, if you are someone who look for BOLD and more glitter then this product probably go to disappoint bin. However, if you want highlighter that you can use daily whether you going to work or just attending class then this one is good to go. It’s as pigmented as Becca Shimmered Highlighter powder but not as smooth and creamy like Becca, due to the glitterish powder it may make you feel like your makeup is not so soft looking and it does enhance your pores or your imperfection. There is some kick back of this palette – the palette is powdery. It’s not as finely milled as Becca. The highlighter can ‘moved’ throughout the day around my face and it make it looks messy.
Does it work in Asian skin tone?
Does it work in dark skin tone?
OF COURSE, absolutely. You need to buy it. You need to use Forever Lit, because it deffo work well in your tone rather than mine (pink fair).

Kitty Kat is medium peachy pink tone. I love this colour and mostly used it with Palladio baked blush.
Day Dream is bright orange tone with glitter. This one is really good with peachy blush on that available in Sephora Blush on collection or Etude House collection, I love this one, because it does look natural and ‘wouw’ for daily looks, when you simply hang out with your friends, go to café shops and smile to your crush + show off your cheek bone.

Here the palette and swatches:
My personal thought
I do really love to see people use highlighter that is huge different shade from their own skin tone, because the colour will popped out and it’s white, so most of all skin tone will work.
The reason I buy this product is because the tone and the packaging. I love ABH, I did realize that they always always have a good product for palette, I have no ideas what happened with the subcultures BUT….. This one work.
You need to see how Stephanie Nicole use it and with other palette that she compared with, which is Viseart and Morphe. Also, as a customer, I do understand that we all want the palette to adapt to our need, but its dead things, if we really love makeup, we need to understand how to use it and that’s the beginning of how we really understand about makeup. The things that I do like about Stephanie Nicole is she try to understand how to use it, and use it the way the palette were born.
I don’t know about you But for me, I did treated it as living things, we are born in different tone, different shape and different from any other person, we are unique (called me crazy, but..) if you treat the palette like yourself, do you really want to be treated like ‘that’ when you are ‘born this way’?
However, I won’t do argument with the subcultures palette. We all have different opinion and argument about it.
So, the GLOW KIT: WORTH IT to buy.
