Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Glow Highlighter Oyster: Review & Swatches

I was so in love with the swatches I saw online of the new Anastasia Liquid Glow Highlighter in Oyster. It looked like the pearly beige version of Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Blossom. Details per Sephora:

What it is:
A weightless liquid highlighter that imparts an intense glow with lustrous finishes.

What it does:
Liquid Glow Highlighter is a concentrated, fill-pigment liquid formula that effortlessly blends into skin and with your favorite complexion products. Just layer it with Glow Kit for a high-impact, radiant sheen.

This liquid highlighter feels very similar to the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in the buildable high pearl finish. You can get both to a pretty reflective high pearl coverage. Oyster is described as a sparkling rose gold. It’s a high pearl warm beige pink with gold micro glitter. The base color is absolutely perfect I love it. It’s unique and shifts in the light. It’s makes me want to cry that they put gold micro glitter in it. It ruins it for me. The gold micro glitter is only apparent when you start to sheer out the formula and blend it in. It really takes over the look of the product. If you like micro glitter and glittery highlighters you’ll be fine with this highlighter. If you’re like me and hate glitter, even micro glitter, than it will ruin this for you.

The packaging is simple with a plastic tube with a thin tip so you don’t over do squeezing out the right amount. It’s reasonable at $25 so nothing major to empty the wallet. The formula is buildable and you can get a light coverage to some degree but it can go medium to heavy quite easy. You will get a major glow with this one. The formula blends easy and is super smooth. It dries down to a powder like finish, lasts most the day with no issues and survived the heat and humidity for me. The beige pink base is so perfect if you like highlighter shades with that tone. Shame it has to be filled with micro glitter.

Compared with Top to Bottom: Cover FX Blossom which is cooler and pinker, Anastasia Oyster which is warmer and more beige:
