Review & Summer FOTD: Anastasia of Beverly Hills See and Be Seen Makeup Kit

Anastasia of Beverly Hills See And Be Seen Makeup Kit is the perfect all-in-one makeup kit for summer. Go from flawless California casual to photo-ready in a flash with this versatile set for the eyes and face. This California color story represents effortless Hollywood glamour for the modern girl. The limited edition SEE AND BE SEEN kit includes two new HydraFull Gloss colors in Heiress and Plastic, Caramel tinted brow gel, and the ILLUMIN8 shadow duo in On the Set ($44) $80 value. and is only available for 3-4 more weeks!
The soft pink and golden hues of the shadow duo in On the Set are perfect for a shimmering bronze eye. ILLUMIN8 Eye Shadow Duos are designed to illuminate the appearance of skin while also soothing, softening and hydrating. These shadow's are velvety soft and pack a pretty punch of pigmentation. Both of the shades are gorgeous for summer, the first a champagne rose gold and the second a rich copper. I'm very cool toned and even I can pull them off they're so universally flattering.
Anastasia’s brow gel sets your perfect brow look with a hint of tint and is fortified with botanical hair conditioners and essential oils to keep brows feeling as great as they look. I use the Clear brow gel and love it, this one adds just a touch of carmel mettalic color. It's suitable for blondes and light brunette's, but anything darker probably not. The brow gel's are top notch products, but I wish they would've included a color choice in either clear or brunette because this shade won't work for everyone.
These limited edition bright summer color glosses were created specifically for the theme of “Make It Happen” and are not available anywhere except in the See and Be Seen Kit. Anastasia’s Hydrafull Gloss contains lip tint to maintain longer lasting color while maximizing lip hydration and fullness.

These are type of glosses I adore to the max! I would buy this kit for the glosses alone. They have that sexy lacquered patent-leather high shine finish that creates a deliciously full pouty lip. Heiress is a red raspberry shade and Plastic a clean bright pink. The feel of these glosses is moisturizing, non sticky, with an almost waterproof staying power. They have a beautiful translucent tint to them making wearing an ultra-bright color easy. My only complaint is the plastic spatula paddle applicator, it's just a weird way of applying gloss, but because they're such nice glosses I can get past it.

Now for a VERY stripped down look compared to what I normally eyeliner, no false lashes, no crazy lipstick, and freakin bronzer! In the summer I pair down my makeup to quick minimal looks. Spending more time outdoors, vacationing, and of course the sweltering heat makes wearing a full face a no go. This kit is sure to be a summer makeup staple!

Love this kit! It's a great way to try Anastasia's products at a discounted price. How cool is the view finder? Talk about 80's nostalgia! The slides have promo images for the kit and also Anastasia's Lash Out (review here). This is just a part of the media press kit and doesn't come with see & be seen, but it was too cool not to share. I totally have a crush on Anastasia's graphics and marketing department, clever bunch they are :)
