04 Jan / SEPHORA x ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
Hands up if you’re excited about the recent addition of Sephora online?
I’ll admit I’m a little bit on the “I have no clue what I’m doing when it comes to makeup” side of things and if it weren’t for my best friend or youtube tutorials I’d be completely lost. But none the less, when overseas I managed to visit Sephora so many times (In every single place I went to) and would find myself losing track of time amongst the endless rows of bronzers, foundations and countless other beauty products. It was like I was Charlie and Sephora was my Chocolate Factory! I was in love! And now thankfully I don’t have to leave the comfort of my home to get my Sephora fix.
One of the brands that is stocked at Sephora.com.au that I have heard nothing but rave reviews about is Anastasia Beverly Hills. I managed to get my hands on a few of their star products and have reviewed them for you below:
(*As stated above I have minimal knowledge in the makeup department, so all opinions are based on what works for me – but let’s be honest could be completely wrong)
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Contour Kit in Medium to Tan
This was the product I was most excited about. I ordered the medium to tan kit as it was the only one available at the time and I usually get pretty tanned during the Summer months. When I opened the kit, I immediately knew I had messed up and the highlighting colours were way too dark for me to use. But luckily I loved all of the darker colours which I found were perfect for contouring. I’ve heard you can buy separate palettes so I will be swapping one of the ones in my kit for the ‘Banana’ palette to use under the eyes. My overall verdict is this product is a must as it is very easy to blend and comes with some amazing shades to play around with. However, next time I will be purchasing the light to medium kit. If you are new to the contouring game I would recommend watching a few youtube tutorials!
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Enhancing Serum Advanced
Believe me when I say I have tried everything there is to try when it comes to growing your eyebrows. Due to some over plucking in my teenage years (Thanks mum!) my eyebrows have been left a little worse for wear. Even coconut oil has encouraged brow growth – but in all the unwanted places. So I was super excited to try out this enhancing serum. I have only been using this for the past 5 days, morning and night, so it’s hard to judge the effects it has, but they do seem to slowly be growing, particularly at the ends (Yay!). This is one that I will definitely keep using.
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Clear Brow Gel
Surprisingly to me this was my favourite product out the three! Any thing that holds your brows in that “just brushed” shape gets a tick from me. It is super easy to use as it is comes with a mascara like wand. After brushing and filling in your brows, use the brow gel to brush your brows into place.
