Beauty Trends: Duochrome Highlighters

 Beauty Trends posts are always exciting for me, as it means there's something new for me to get acquainted with and stuck in to!
Today's topic is 'Duochrome Highlighters'. As we all know, highlighting, strobing, and general glowing of the skin is something that's bang on trend, so of course, brands are looking for new ways to stand out from the (huge) crowd. That means we're seeing highlighters brought out in unusual shades, (I'm looking at you, Jeffree Star!), and now highlighters with a duochrome finish! Now that's something I can get on board with. I'm a huge fan of duochrome eyeshadows, and I'm known for grabbing anything and everything with a duochrome finish.

I have a couple of these types of highlighters swimming around in my collection, but in particular I wanted to talk about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit as this is the ultimate duochrome highlighting palette!

From L to R - Blue Ice, Star, Purple Horseshoe, Pink Heart, Lucky Clover & Blue Moon

Firstly, look how beautiful the swatches are? That was one swipe. The formula of Anastasias glow kits just gets better and better!

I ummed and ahhed over this palette for some time, wondering where I could fit duochrome into my base routine without looking a little bit crazy! I've seen this palette on a huge range of skin tones, and after seeing how gorgeous it looked, I decided I needed to up my highlighting game, and fast. I'll list a brief description of each shade below, taken straight from the ABH website!

Blue Ice - Diamond white with an icy blue reflect.
Star - A moonstone fusion of mint, platinum and silver reflect.
Purple Horseshoe - A glittering lavender with an arctic blue reflect.
Pink Heart - Pearl white with a pink opal reflect.
Lucky Clover - A shamrock-infused gold with canary yellow diamond reflect .
Blue Moon - Frozen blue with a silver reflect.

I'm spotting brands bringing out their own duochrome highlighters, and I can see this being the start of a new collection in my beauty stash. I will link a few existing duochrome highlighters that I have in my collection already! 

I'm very excited to see what's coming out in terms of these duochrome gems, let us all have an intergalactic glow!

Have you tried a duochrome highlighter yet?
