Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera and So Hollywood Illuminators

 

Hello fellow netizens of the world! As we speak I’m writing this quickie post at the airport while waiting for my flight to Shreveport, LA for a Microbiology Conference. In a nutshell, it’s a work related geekery I need to be a part of. I’m looking forward to new learnings in the realm of Microbiology. And for this trip I took with me Anastasia Beverly Hills in So Hollywood and Riviera for my daily dose of glow. Anastasia Beverly Hills So Hollywood is super pretty on brown skin and is a great addition to my “go to” highlighters. I’ve also included dupes below for both So Hollywood and Riviera. Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera just basically gets absorbed on my brown skin as a highlighter but can be worn as an all over highlight if you want a more subtle glow but will be a let down for all my women of color beauties if you are looking for that “in your face” glow.

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera is characterized as a rose gold. It appears on my skin as a warm shimmery beige with strong bronze undertones. It lasted for almost 9 hours of wear. It is a finely milled texture with no signs of being dry or crumbly. You can apply this either wet or dry but I prefer the latter one. Since my skin tone absorbs this shade in a snap, I applied at least 3 layers if I wanted a more obvious shimmer and just a layer or two for a more subtle one. If you got a fairer skin tone than I do, you shouldn’t have any issues of the product not showing up.

Anastasia Beverly Hills So Hollywood is described as a true gold. It appears on my skin as a shimmery cool toned gold. It went on for a whooping 10 hours of wear. It is fine in texture that when you use a brush, you won’t have any issues of it crumbling. However, I did sweep my finger across the pan to apply the highlighter on the bridge of my nose but I just noticed some crumbles on my fingers. So probably not a great idea after all. I so love this shade for my skin. Need I say more about this shade, the pictures don’t lie.

The Bottom Line:

Both are worth getting since each has it’s own distinct personality. At least they are worth the $28 you’ve spent for a hefty amount of the product and it’s made in Italy. I like the pattern on both pans too. If you follow Mario D. on Instagram, he used Anastasia So Hollywood on Kim K. I’ve also tried using Anastasia Riviera as an eyeshadow and a gloss topper, it’s hands down gorgeous. Enjoy the dupes below. If you already own at least one of them, it’s your call to get these two or not. Until next time…
