When it comes to discussing my obsessions of the cosmetic variety, I have developed a love-love relationship with certain products of the beauty friends with benefits category. I’m talking about Anastasia of Beverly Hills, and the newest additions to the cosmetic line. From gloss to powder, these are the items that I am getting rather hot and heavy with.
HydraFull Lip Gloss
When it comes to lipgloss, I sometimes feel like the market is so over-saturated that it is hard to wow me. Well, leave it to Anastasia’s HydraFull’s to do exactly that. These tubes of lipgloss go beyond depositing just basic shine and color, also leaving a trail of lip-loving Jojoba Oil, moisturizing Shea Butter, and Anastasia’s own soothing, smoothing, and softening Balkan Botanical Infusion in the applicator’s wake. Each shade is richly pigmented with multi-dimensional pearl particles, and deliciously slick (not sticky) on my lips. Just a swipe of the magic paddle (have I mentioned how much I love the paddle applicator?!) and my lips not only feel softer, but they look delightfully plumper, too.
Hydrafull Glosses, Swatched on Lips:
Remember those awesome illumin-8 eye shadow palettes that we discussed not too long ago? Well now my face gets the very same treatment, with a bronzing powder that not only warms up the complexion, but also deposits moisturizing, anti-aging, and skin-loving ingredients with each delicate swipe of a brush. Bronzer is as essential to my pallid complexion as breathing, and skincare is required for my visage as well. Put the two together, and you have a match made in cosmeceutical heaven.
The shade offerings are Sun Kissed, a soft tan,
and Sun Bronzed, a deeper tan option. I use them both for a softly chiseled face.
All of these amazing Anastasia Beverly Hills offerings are available both online, and at your local Sephora. Trust when I say that these are some beauty friends with benefits that you most certainly will want to get close to.
