Anastasia Beverly Hills no longer has to prove that they aren’t a one trick pony as the brow aficionado of the beauty world. No, no. This line still deservedly carries that banner with pride, but they are unrolling some exciting products for lips, face and eyes that you do not want to miss! You already know that I adored the All Eye Want Palette and the Highlighting Creme Duos, but the newest trick up Anastasia’s sleeve has solidified this brands place of honour in my “Favourite-Never-Fails-Me” list.
With a client list that boasts the whose who and up-and-coming in Hollywood, it is no surprise that Anastasia has created a kit that that gives a nod towards the Hollywood glitz and glamour. The limited edition (only two weeks left!!) See and Be Seen kit has everything a girl needs for a fun and bright summer look that will compliment you both pre- and post-tan this summer. Perfectly on trend with high shine and colour impact, this kit will help you to make a fashionable beauty statement while stilling looking polished and chic. The textures of the eye shadows and glosses rival the top selling fashion house beauty brands and feel luxurious on the skin. All of the products are long lasting, crease proof, smudge proof and basically fool proof.
Two new HydraFull Gloss colors in Heiress and Plastic. These limited edition bright summer colors were created specifically for the theme of “Make It Happen” and are not available anywhere except in the See and Be Seen Kit. Anastasia’s Hydrafull Gloss contains lip tint to maintain longer lasting color while maximizing lip hydration and fullness.
The lipglosses made this whole kit for me. The colours look quite fluorescent in the tube and on the applicator, but once they are applied to the lips they take on a new life. The colour is vibrant but not scary or unapproachable. The richness in texture and payoff are delightful as is the tint they leave behind after the high shine wears down. I particularly love wearing Heiress all over with just a touch of Plastic in the center to add fullness and dimension. The colours blend together so well that they are perfect companions. Of note is the innovative applicator: it looks and feels like a spatula that helps to distribute product on the lip evenly and precisely and is also a much more sanitary and effective tool for makeup artists. I find the easiest way to use this product is to pick up the gloss with a lip brush right from the spatula.
- The new caramel tinted Brow Gel. Anastasia’s brow gel sets your perfect brow look with a hint of tint and is fortified with botanical hair conditioners and essential oils to keep brows feeling as great as they look.
I already on the brow gel in Brunette and use it everyday. Caramel is just slightly too light for me right now but will be perfect once the sun naturally starts to lighten my hair over July and August. Today I used Brunette and Caramel together and loved the result! My brows looked fuller and more sculpted and the products does not move once it sets! The answer to all of your unruly brow woes.
- The soft pink and golden hues of the ILLUMIN8 Shadow duo in On Set. ILLUMIN8 Eye Shadow Duos are designed to illuminate the appearance of skin while also soothing, softening and hydrating.
The same consistency and colour pay off that won me over in the All Eye Want Palette. Follow this link for my full review. The packaging is gorgeous and feels very luxe and heavy. The duo alone would be sold by other brands for almost the price of this whole kit, so that alone makes it a bargain.
I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the genius promotion tools that were sent to me. When I opened the box and gasped with delight after finding a 3D Viewmaster with amazing vintage inspired picture wheels. I have never had so much fun reviewing product information and promo pictures-it is the smartest and most innovative information packet I have ever received! Nostalgic and effective.
