Product: The formula is a finely milled mica aura pigment with finely milled base colours to make the shades more intense on bare skin and over other products. The texture is buttery smooth and has an excellent grip on bare skin. This palette is described, and metallic highlighter and I do have to agree with that as the shimmer particles are larger compared to other highlighters on the skin.

These also make great eyeshadows due to their pigmentation, but I recommend a primer to increase their wear time on the eyes.

Colour:
Eclipse is a pink over a peach base with an Aura finish.
Luna is a white with a very subtle pink undertone and with an Aura finish.
Spectra is a mauve over a green/blue grey base with an Aura finish. The grey base disappears as you buff it out.
Helia is a yellow gold over a white base with an Aura finish.
Orion is a bright pale blue with an Aura finish.
Lyra is an orange with sheen pink and champagne shimmer with an Aura finish.

Wear:  I get 6-8 hours on their own over bare skin. On the eyes 4-5 hours.

Packaging: The palette is a simple cardboard box compact with a magnetic for closure. It is light weight with a solid pink to purple colour gradient as that base.

The palette cover is a holographic finish that flashes the whole rainbow (or Aurora) depending on the light that hits it. The letter is also done with a silver rainbow metallic foil and black lettering.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow in Orion is cooler and darker compared to KVD {blue} Saphyre & Lime Crime Mermaids HI-LITE in Seashell with both being more aqua in colour, and just darker compared to NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Twilight Tint. Out of the 3 dupes, I would say Twilight Tint is the closest in colour if not lighter.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow in Spectra is warmer and darker compared to KVD {ultra-violet} Amethyst & Lime Crime Mermaids HI-LITE in Mermaid with both being more blued base purples, and just darker NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Lavander Steel. Out of the 3 dupes, I would say Lavander Steel is the closest when buffed up but read more mauve/purple and lighter.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow in Helia is bright because a whiter base compared to Lime Crime Opals HI-LITE in Gold. The gold shimmer is the same in both shades.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow in Luna is pinker compared to Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Pearl, & Lime Crime Mermaids HI-LITE in Pearl.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow in Eclipse is warmer more peach compared to KVD {pink} Opal, Lime Crime Opals HI-LITE in Pink; & NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder in Snow Rose. Out of the 3 dupes, I would say Snow Rose is the closest as it's a warm pink, but it's still not as peach by comparison.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow in Lyra is warmer more golden compared to Lime Crime Opals HI-LITE in Peach.
Verdict: 
Compared to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit which had 3 shade that looked identical on my fair skin this Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit has distinct colours with each shade show up on me. I was pleasantly surprised none look too dark either as I was afraid the grey base of Spectra muddy.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit is a solid palette you're looking for creative colours that almost spans the rainbow with just lacking a green and true purple for creative looks and it also the cheapest option out of all of the dupes per shade.
