WHY I'M ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS AND TRENDS...
One of the reasons why I began my blog was to share honest beauty tips & trends and beauty reviews! I have seen on a frequent basis quite the opposite of many of the beauty-themed blogs and sites. Instead, see a lot of advertised and paid reviews, in addition to products that just aren't really and truly tested or aren't good for your skin and the environment! THIS is NOT my motto!!!
You will see from time-to-time occasional beauty product reviews in which I DID receive a product but I do NOT accept compensation for my reviews and I will ALWAYS give my honest opinions on what I ACTUALLY think-regardless on whether or NOT I got the product- OR bought it! Unless you see the following link (below) I've either bought the product or was gifted from another awesome follower or friend to review! THIS one that I'm reviewing today for example, I purchased myself!
ALL that being said, I'm always searching for great products to share and if there is ANYTHING I find that seems like it could save some time AND frustration...I am definitely IN! Sometimes we can favor certain brands or products and also miss out on all the awesome new beauty items out on the market as well. I've really started to try and branch out with new items, approaches, and beauty trends/tips so that I can share all of that with you! THIS product by Anastasia Beverly Hills is NO exception!
BROW KIT I DECIDED TO GET:
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS -BEAUTY EXPRESS FOR BROWS AND EYES $39.95
*I purchased this at Dermstore w/FREE shipping AND TWO FREE samples :) Dermstore is also an Authorized Retailer of Anastasia Beverly Hills so ALL their products are guaranteed to be authentic :)
- Brow Wax Cream (0.04 oz.)
- Brow Powder Duo (0.056 oz.)
- Eyeshadow Duo (0.05 oz.)
- Stencils (5 count) *includes a good variety and range of different sizes of arches!
- Angled Brush
MY THOUGHTS ON THE KIT:
I was honestly slightly hesitant about getting the kit as I'm fairly partial to another one made by Urban Decay called the Brow Box that I just adore! It is similar to this kit in that it has two different powder shades, an applicator, and wax, BUT the brow kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills takes the kit a couple of awesome steps further! This kit also has two other shades of eye shadows that will compliment most skin tones well and is excellent for highlighting brow arches!
I was easily able to find the right stencil for my brows even though I have a fairly slender face and small brows- which really surprised me as I had felt this was probably going to be an issue with the kit, but I was completely wrong. It ended up working perfectly! It was very easy to use, apply , and the results were fantastic. I don't think I've ever seen my brows look so great and natural with such and easy application! It really only took me about 5 mins total to use and I was done :) The color kit I chose- which was the blonde version, was also a great match for my brows which are super light in usually pretty difficult to match that well.
It's a little on the pricey side, which was probably the ONLY downside I could really find. But, all in all it was a great find and well worth the price. The brow kit will also last me ages so even though it's $40 a pop, you won't be buying another one for a while even if you use this everyday! As an added bonus, I also purchased mine from Dermstore and scored some sweet extras, but you can also find the product at other places as well. Sephora for example does have it in stock frequently and you can have some awesome added extras like free samples or other deals like free shipping on the product :)
