Anastasia See And Be Seen Kit

Anastasia's new See And Be Seen Kit ($44) is a limited-edition value set for face and eyes. The four-piece kit comes with 2 Hydrafull Glosses in Heiress and Plastic, Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel & Illumin8 Eyeshadow Duo in On Set.

The glosses in Heiress (Coral Red) and Plastic( Hot Pink) both have a smooth, glossy creme finish with no shimmer or glitter. They are quite pigmented for a lip gloss and the color can be toned down for a sheer look too. Although slightly sticky, they feel very moisturizing, more like a liquid lipstick. I'm not very fond of the applicator which is just a thin plastic wand. Considering the smooth texture of these glosses, a sponge applicator would have been amazing to work with. These glosses also tend to stain lips once they're gone, after about 2-3 hours. I love the way these glosses feel and both the shades are perfect, bright, at the same time wearable for summer.

The Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel is a dark taupe-y brown with a metallic sheen. I did find the metallic sheen a little odd and the color is a little light for my brows. A dark brown would have been a better choice for my dark brows. I find brow gels quite convenient to use but, this would have been better without the metallic sheen.

Illumin8 Eyeshadow Duo in On Set comes with a shimmery bronzy brown and a lighter beigy-pink. Both colors complement each other well and pair really well with the glosses. The eye shadows seem to be of great quality and pack a lot of pigment. They blend like a dream and go on smooth even without a primer on. I love to grab the bronzy shade for a neutral eye and use a darker color along the crease. For how smooth the eye shadows are, the amount of fallout was also very minimal.

Overall, the See and Be Seen Kit is a pretty good value considering the quality of the eye shadows and the full size glosses. The colors are very impressive and easy to work with too!
