Anastasia Beverly Hills See and Be Seen Kit Review

My last post was about an amazing new product from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I told you that they were generous and sent me a full size of their Lash Genius to test out and review. To my surprise there was another item in my box. This product is Limited Edition and available right now at Sephora.com only. This is the See and Be Seen Kit. This kit retails for $44.00 and is valued at $80.00!
Here are the products in the kit -

Two new HydraFull Gloss colors in Heiress and Plastic. These limited edition colors were created specifically for this kit 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 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.
The soft pink and golden hues of the ILLUMIN8 Shadow duo in On Set. ILLUMIN8 Eye Shadow Duos are designed to illuminate, firm, and smooth the appearance of skin while also soothing, softening and hydrating.

As you can see you get 4 full size products for $44.00, that means you are paying $11.00 a piece for each product! Ok now on to the fun stuff. For me the star products were the glosses. When I first opened the package I was a little surprised by the bright colors of the two glosses. You know me I am usually a total nude lip girl. I immediately went to put the pink on on and there was my second surprise, the applicator. At first glance I thought that the sponge tip fell of inside the tube. I then realized that it is the way the applicator is made. My first time using this I did apply too much of this incredible gloss. You only need a little on the spatula type wand to apply to your lips and make them look glossy and fab. I have to be honest and tell you that I wore Plastic to work and received a ton of compliments. Everyone said how it brightened up my face and looked so pretty and juicy on. The best way I can describe these are popsicles for your lips!!! These look really bright in the tube but are totally wearable! Btw the smell and taste is divine as well and they last for HOURS.

The next product that I couldn't wait to try were the shadows. These go on and really pack a punch! The colors are amazing and would look great and flatter any skin tone. I have been using them daily since I received them last week. They are super pretty and wearable. They have a nice shine and not glittery at all. These would be good for woman of all ages.

The final product that I tried was the brow gel. Unfortunately, I am very dark and have dark eyebrows. This color was light for me. I would definitely need the next shade up. I did try it on to see how it wears because I currently use a brow gel that I have been using for years. I have decided that once I am finished, I will definitely be purchasing the Anastasia in Brunette. I gave the Carmel to my fair haired beautiful friend Erin and it totally worked for her!

* On a side note about Brow Gels, I totally LOVE them. I used them on every client that sits in my chair. I always say if you have eyebrows, gel is the way to go. The wand and the color will stick to the hair you have, darken it, and make it look fuller and hide any bare spots. If you do not have eyebrows, or if they are bare, I suggest a pencil.

Here are some photos of the kit -





All in all this kit is well worth the price of admission! The glosses alone are something that, even the nude lip lovers, need in their gloss library! I will definitely be re-purchasing the brow gel, in my color, more glosses, and more shadow duos. I am so happy that I was able to discover a new love with Anastasia Beverly Hills.

In the case of finding out that Anastasia makes A LOT more than brow goodies - This case is SOLVED!

** I did want to discolose that this kit was sent to me for my use and review. I will only review items that I would purchase with my own money. All of my reviews are my own and my honest opinion about the products. **
