Anastasia Bold & Beautiful Kit

AnastasiYou can’t beat a good hair day, or face day. I love to dress up and make myself feel extra pretty for certain occasions. Since Valentine’s Day is long ver — which holiday do you look forward to, where you’ll head out with that boyfriend (or hey… girlfriend — not discriminating) for a nice evening out and look up to par? I suppose if you count St. Patricks Day coming up, but I don’t really go out on a date night with my boyfriend on that day. ha ha!

Anastasia has come out with another wonderful set of eye shadows and eyebrow kit, to help you all feel wonderful every day. Please welcome, the Bold & Beautiful Kit by Anastasia Soare. Bold-And-Beautiful-Kit

The palettes are enclosed in an intricate gold/black pattern which is the size of a wallet if I had to compare it to anything. You can see the size of it as the photo below shows me holding it.Bold-And-Beautiful-Kit--

They’re little booklets that look as if you could store them on your bookshelf and they’d blend right in with all your novels.Bold-And-Beautiful-Kit-Anas

How gorgeous. Sucker for packaging. Bold-And-Beautiful-Kit2These palettes would be great to carry around with you if you’re on the go and would like to touch up your eyebrows or shadow, it’s small enough so you can safely stow it away in your purse until you need it next. It’s so versatile, as you can wear these colors as an everyday neutral, or go for a completely opposite fun coral color that just packs a punch.


Love that it comes with a real brush and spooly and a set of tweezers.  Below is Vol. 1 for Bold Brows which has a brow powder, pomade/wax, mini duo brush and mini tweezers. bold-brows

The eyeshadow quad comes with a double ended eye shadow brushes. One for packing on color, the other for blending. They’re pretty good too! That’s all I used on my eyes, and I didn’t have to resort to getting my MAC brushes out. Vol. 2 for Beautiful Eyes includes four matte and shimmering shadows in some perfect neutrals.


I filled in my brows using the lighter color. I’m not used to filling them in, ever. So it was a bit of a shocker when I looked in the mirror. I think I may have went a little overboard. Hee hee. eye-makeup

The overall look I created:eye-up-close

You’ll notice that this palette contains mostly neutrals. I know some people aren’t a fan of so-called “boring” colors like these. But I personally would never go out and buy something with bold colors since I never wear them. I gravitate towards more easy to wear, easy to blend colors that suit my blue eyes. You can now pick up this duo Bold & Beautiful Kit at Sephora for $36.00 or on the Anastasia Soare website.

Anastasia’s Lash Genius

Summer is coming up and nobody wants to have what I end up having towards the end of the day: residue under my eyes which ends up looking like I have tremendous looking dark circles after being out in the hot summer sun. Dark circles will never be attractive.

Anastasia lash genius.

I don’t use a water proof mascara on a daily basis even though I probably should with the amount of laughing I do in the run of a day. My mascara always comes off because I’m a cry-laugher. Yep, one of those.

Anastasia has come up with the perfect blended formula which isn’t a waterproof mascara in itself. It waterproofs your OWN mascara by applying this on top. Anastasia will be launching Lash Genius — it’s a clear topcoat for your eyelashes, which basically waterproofs the mascara you already own! Dual purpose. Keep your favorite mascara but also waterproof it when needed. Lash Genuis for sure.

Lash Genius keeps your lashes in place without the clumping, or even hardening of your lashes. I’m always afraid my lashes will break off when they harden like that with certain mascaras! Lash Genius is pretty weightless on those blinkers of yours. Is that a term people use for eyelashes? I kinda just made that up. I like it. Blinkers. Turn on those blinkers girls!

Lash Genius doesn’t make your lashes brittle, in fact it coats them and you’re left with soft lashes after putting this stuff on. Meaning they won’t break off or no losing precious lashes after you remove your mascara.

I’m not a false eyelashes wearer because I’m blessed with long lashes that hit my eyebrows , but you can use Lash Genius on your false eyelashes to hold them in place with your regular eyelashes.

It will retail for $21 once it hits Sephora stores in late May.Check out the promo video for it!
