Brow Beauty: Anastasia's Bold and Beautiful Kit

It's the beginning of a new week and first off I would like to congratulate the three winners of my giveaway with Tic Sweden: the fab lovelies, Vix, Cheryl, and Kimbim!

Bold & Beautiful Kit:
Secondly, I decided to give the new Bold & Beautiful (eyebrow) kit from Anastasia of Beverly Hills a try. Like most of their brand marketing, there's a visually appealing instructional booklet with well-guided tips for various uses. But, this time the brow kit included mini tweezers with the complete set.

You may remember the See and Be Seen kit last season or the Beauty Expressthis version is a simple followup to define your eyebrows, freshen up your lids for spring, and learn a bit as well if you're not too savvy in the brow shaping and colouring business.

What To Expect:
The kit is cleverly styled like a beauty novel case set. In Vol. I: Bold Brows it includes a mini duo brush, tweezers, and tinted pomade and Vol. II: Beautiful Eyes includes matte and shimmering eye shadows in neutrals and a peach pink colour. The shadows may be used wet or dry to create a subtle look or a more intensely preferred look.

To be honest, I have recently been going to my friend who does an amazing job at threading eyebrows, so I had to wait to use this kit so that I could get the full effect. I started slowly tweezing away, which I don't usually need to do much of because I actually like the natural arch of my brows. Then, I just followed the outline of how I wanted to define the shape of my brows. Mobile uploads below:

Pros:
I love this kit's version of bold brows. I find the powder and pomade to be richer and easier for grooming, resulting in a nice smooth finish. The shadows are nice, however I like the neutrals more this time than the colour (see more below). Shade four was also my favourite. This kit would be great for travelling, as the size is perfect and compact as well..

Cons:
None ... Well, it's really more of a preference! I prefer the deeper eye shadows of the "Want you to Want Me Kit" for creating my version of "A Catty Eye," smoky eye, or merely in general. But, that might be because my eyes are very almond shaped and I tend to play upon that best. 


The Verdict:
All in all, this gets a 7 out of 10. A worthy palette and likely versatile for most people! 


This kit is available at www.Anastasia.net,  You may also find it at Sephora and Nordstroms.

  23. Great job! It's been awhile, but I tried her kits awhile ago and loved them. I started going to someone and they did a good job. Now I'm back to doing my own (saving money). Eyebrows are a must! They really do shape the entire face.
