It's here! My review for the New Anastasia See And Be Seen Cosmetic Kit. As most of you know I tweeted about this item and added a little teaser image to the Facebook account and yesterday it arrived from publicity on the mail. This collection is new and available this May along with the new Lash Genius product I reviewed a couple of weeks back.
Ladies keep in mind this set has two new exclusive HydraFull Gloss shades created specifically for the See And Be Seen Kit. You will not be able to buy these gloss shades anywhere else! Heiress is a bright res shade and Plastic is a gorgeous bright pink. Some product info below:
The See and Be Seen kit will not be available until May so this is an exclusive peek at some new Anastasia Beverly Hills products! In the kit you will find and enjoy:
- Two new HydraFull Gloss colors in Heiress and Plastic. These limited edition 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 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 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.
The See and Be Seen kit will retail for $44 (with $80 value) when it arrives at Sephora and Anastasia.net this May and is a great opportunity to try – at a discount – the eye shadow duo and tinted brow gel.
Pro: rich shadow pigments, silky, buildable, decent wear, decent crease proof, travel friendly, cruelty free, non-sticky lip gloss, exclusive gloss shades, gloss keeps lips moist and full looking, great non-sticky brow gel, great value and fill weightCon: minor shadow fallout
Formula HydraFull Gloss: The Hydrafull lip gloss is very thick and goes on heavy at first but if you use a small amount of product and blend well it feels comfortable on your lips. It stays on a very long time so the rich formula helps maintain the gloss for long periods of time. It does not wipe away easily like drug store gloss. Your lips appear more full and lush while keeping them moist.
The two shades included are Heiress and Plastic which are brand new and exclusive to this set! The colors in this set can be worn be all skin tones and are perfect for the summer.
Heiress is a rich bright cherry red shade
Plastic is a gorgeous bright pink shade
Formula Illumin8 Duo: I reviewed the Illumin8 shadows for you guys before and this duo has the same formula. The pigments are very rich and shimmery without any glittery fall out. There is a little shadow fall out when you dip your brush into the pan but it's all very minor. These shadows are silky and glide on your skin beautifully. The formula also helps make your eyes appear firmer and more youthful.
Shadow Duo Color: This palette is called ON SET and has a lighter gold beige highlighter shade and a darker golden bronze shadow. Perfect for most skin tones since the gold and bronze is very rich it does show up against darker skin and even compliments a summer tan.
Formula Tinted Brow Gel: I was thrilled to try this new tinted brow gel because I fell in love with the regular brow gel after reviewing it before. It's just as great for keeping your brow hairs in shape with the same lightweight non-sticky formula as the clear gel.
Brow Gel Shade: This gel is lightly tinted in shade Caramel which is a bronze gold color that works well even on my dark brow hair. I added a little extra coat on top of my brows after styling them so the shade appears more. A little trick I used was adding some of the bronze shadow powder on my brows as well. I loved the fun look it gave my brows and as you know colored brow hairs have been popular on the runway and in magazine editorials all this year and last. Very playful while keeping your brow style set!
Packaging: This entire collection is packaged in a large boxy carton (pictured above) with a flip up top showing a film reel of models and paparazzi snapping red carpet images. The products come wrapped in white tissue paper stamped with Anastassia logo all included in the box. It's a great presentation to keep or give as a gift.
Bottom Line: You get a collection of wearable shadows, exclusive lip gloss set and a fun tinted brow gel retailed at half the price it's worth. Most designer gloss runs around $20 a pop so this kit is a great value. I love how they added a red and a pink shadow as well as a golden shadow duo that will compliment a wide range of skin tones so everyone can enjoy this kit. Mom's, this would be a fun gift idea for the young lady who is going to prom this June. The colors are classy and will enhance your own beauty without making you look older than you should. This set receives a 4.5 starfish rating from me. Mark this May on your calendars to purchase this and don't forget to pick up that fabulous Lash Genius waterproof topcoat mascara. What do you guy's think about this collection? Stay beautiful! XOXO
