The more things I try from Anastasia Beverly Hills the more enamoured I become. I already think that she makes the best brow products. So much so that I ordered every shade of her Brow Powder Duos and Brow Wiz pencils for my pro kit. I will be doing a full review of these with swatches eventually. Having the opportunity to review products outside the brow range has proven that the quality is present throughout the line.
Illumin8 Eyeshadow Duo in On Set
I have reviewed the Illumin8 eyeshadows previously with my review of the Cavalli Eyeshadow palette. Please check out that review for more detailed information on the formula. The Illumin8 Eyeshadow Duo in On Set included in the See and Be Seen Kit offers the same beautiful pigmentation, smooth texture, and illuminating sheen that the palette did. They are lovely shades that together create the perfect easy, neutral, summer eye look. These eyeshadows work best offer a primer to prevent fading.
Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel
I have the clear Anastasia Brow Gel and it is nice to finally test out the tinted version. The Anastasia Brow Gels are perfect for setting your brows to last all day. If you have full brows then you can probably skip pencil or powder all together and just refine your look with a sweep of Tinted Brow Gel. For those of us with sparser brows that we have filled in with pencil or powder the Tinted Brow Gel is wonderful to not only hold brows in place but to provide that extra touch of dimension to give a more natural result. I love that the Anastasia Brow Gel wands come out with very little product on them. It's the right amount to brush a very light layer onto your brows without having to mess around wiping of the applicator first.
Hydrafull Gloss in Plastic and Heiress
Shebam! Look at those babies! Now those are hot pink summer glosses. The richly pigmented glosses practically glowed neon on the clear silicone applicator wands. I have reviewed Anastasia Hydrafull Gloss previously with my review of Moi. Please check out that review for more detailed information on the formula. These are very pigmented and leave a nice hint of stain on your lips once they have worn off. They have a slight bit of stickiness but nothing uncomfortable. The wear time is fairly good for a gloss.
Plactic is a gorgeous hot cool pink with no shimmer. Heiress is a warmer hot pink with the teeniest, tiniest shimmer which is mostly invisible on the lips. In the lip swatches below they appear quite similar but in real life the difference in tone of these to in your face pinks is as evident as in the tube. I am in LOVE with these glosses. Looking at them just makes me happy.
I also received this nifty 3D viewfinder. I felt just like a kid again looking at the fun imagery Anastasia created for the See and Be Seen kit. Here is a peek at some of the pictures included.
The See and Be Seen kit is $44 (retail value of $80). Canadian retail is $58 :(. This is a limited edition set that came out for summer so it will be selling out soon. I think for $44 this is a deal you can't pass up! Available at Sephora and Anastasia.net.
I also want to take this opportunity to mention the AMAZING Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat again. If you did not read my review then please do so. This product really is wonderful and summer wouldn't be complete without it. I am part of a private beauty bloggers group where one of the members inquired as to whether any of us had tried Lash Genius yet. Well the replies just started coming...and coming...from all of us bloggers who were positively in love with the product and couldn't rave about it enough. No one had a bad thing to say. In case you are too lazy to read my review I will give you a quick summary. It is a waterproof topcoat you apply after you have applied your regular favourite mascara. We all know how hard it is to find a waterproof mascara that we love as much as our favourite regular mascara. Now you don't have to keep searching! Plus you can multitask this product to set your brows or create a waterproof liner by mixing some eyeshadow with it.
