Anastasia See And Be Seen

13 Jun

I received a box of the Anastasia See And Be Seen beauty kit to try out a while ago and have been really excited to write about it ever since I tried it out. The kit includes:

  • 1 Tinted brow gel in caramel
  • 1 Illumin8 eyeshadow duo in a set
  • 1 Hydrafull gloss in Heiress
  • 1 Hydrafull gloss in Plastic

 

The Packaging

The packaging is very creative and interesting to view.  On top of the box you’ll find a flap stating the company brand name as well as the name of the set in white and hot pink. When you lift the flap there are pictures of the products that are included in the kit and below that there are a series of images that look like a set of films. The film like pictures are of people having a good time at a party and maybe it’s just me but I can see myself being drawn into a more festive mood which is always a great way to start the day. The back of the box simply states the ingredients used to make the products.

Anastasia See And Be Seen Review

I’m going to start this review by saying that I absolutely love the Hydrafull glosses. The glosses appear to be sheer when you look at them on the wands but when applied they actually pack on a lot of color. Being that they’re glosses you also get a beautiful shine so that the beautiful rich pigment also captures light. Anastasia opted for a plastic wand rather than a brush, however the plastic allows you to apply the product easily and efficiently. There was never a mess and the color always looked even and it stayed on until I was just about done with my coffee. Last but not least, they deliver some serious moisture without feeling overly sticky which I can’t stand. The Anastasia Hydrafull glosses in Heiress and Plastic are available for sale only in the See and Be Seen kit so you can’t purchase them on their own. However, this isn’t bad news considering that the entire kit is sold for $44.00.

I wasn’t too excited to try out the tinted brow gel that I found in the Anastasia See And Be Seen kit because it’s in a caramel color and my brows are black. I was concerned that it would distort the color of my brows or that it would stand out but this didn’t happen to the extent that I thought that it would. The tinted brow gel highlighted my brows in the caramel color so that there was a little bit of color added to my natural black. By a little bit I mean that 90% of my brows were highlighted. The wand made it easy to apply the product without much effort of fuss. So basically because the product was mostly clear and because it was easy to use, my brows looked well groomed with a touch of shine. My one and only warning about the brow gel is to avoid wearing it to the gym because if you wipe your brows it will come off. It didn’t smudge all over my brow area but I did have to spot my workout for a minute to make sure that it all did come off properly.

The last product that is in the Anastasia See And Be Seen kit is the Illumin8 eyeshadow. The set is great because it provides two natural colors that will look good on most skin tones and can be used in conjunction with most other shadow colors. The shadows go on evenly and smoothly and with the help of a primer they stay on. Like the glosses, the shadows provide a lot of pigment so that you don’t have to keep on layering. There is a brush that is included in the shadow set but I prefer to use my own brushes because they give me more control. The Illumin8 eyeshadow set is my second favorite product in the Anastasia See And Be Seen kit because of its ease of use and versatility. I definitely plan to use these shadows often this summer.

The kit is a perfect accessory for the summer months because the colors are vibrant and playful. As mentioned earlier, you can purchase Anastasia See And Be Seen for $44.00 on Anastasia.net or at your favorite beauty supply store. Considering that you’re getting four great beauty products it’s well worth the price. But you better hurry because it’s available for a limited time only.
