Anastasia of Beverly Hills See And Be Seen Kit

Today I have a very handy little kit to show you! For the summer Anastasia of Beverly Hills came out with a limited edition summer make-up set. The See and Be Seen Kit.

Go from flawless California casual to photo-ready in a flash with this versatile set for the eyes and face. This California color story represents effortless Hollywood glamour for the modern girl.

Tinted Brow Gel Caramel, Plastic HydraFull gloss, Heiress HydraFull gloss,  Illumin8 Eyeshadow Duo in/teinte On Set

The packaging junkie says: The box is so pretty!/Je craque pour le packaging...vous me connaissez!

The kit contains two new LE HydraFull lipglosses that are not available anywhere but in this kit in the shades Plastic and Heiress. The shades are perfect for summer and so gorgeous! These are buildable, HYDRATING, have almost a vinyl finish on the lips and they are long lasting (they contain lip tint for added staying power).

Caramel Tinted Brow Gel - Gel Sourcils Teinté, Heiress, Plastic

The applicator is a plastic spatula...same type of applicator the 3D glosses by Bourjois also have. Personally, I am not a fan of these applicators. I do have to admit though, that for makeup artists it's a plus for sanitary reasons and makes applying to a palette or the back of your hands a breeze.

The kit also includes an eye shadow palette containing two stunning shades: a champagne shade and a golden bronze. The ILLUMIN8 Eyeshadow Duo in On Set is highly pigmented and the shadows are buttery (they remind me of the Stila eye shadows) and silky soft! Look at the swatches below! Plus the compact is stunning!

Last but not least, the See and Be Seen kit also includes a tinted brow gel in the shade Caramel. Luckily the shade marries well with my natural brow colour but it won't be the case for everyone. One thumb down! It comes with a mascara wand and is easy to apply. Just brush on and you are all set (literally!). Great product if the shade works for you. A good option would have been to offer this kit in 3 shades: for light, medium and dark hair (a little friendly suggestion Anastasia of Beverly Hills!).

You know how we bloggers love to received out of the box PR pitches?! How is that for awesome!!??? A View Master!! Two Thumbs Up from this beauty blogger!!! Well done! I thought that was so fun and out of the ordinary!

The See and Be Seen kit is only available for a limited time at Sephora and on the Anastasia website!

SRP: $44.00 USD 
*PR sample received. The thoughts, as always, are my own.

P.S. La version française sera ajoutée sous peu!
