This week I finally got my hands on a product that has been on the top of my lust list for a looong time: the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. This nifty little kit from the Queen of Brows Anastasia Soare has been out of stock and virtually impossible to get hold of for months, so I was absolutely delighted when I got an email from Cult Beauty (http://www.cultbeauty.co.uk) to say that it was back in stock. Needless to say I didn't hesitate to grab one for myself!
The kit arrived yesterday and my first impressions of it was that the packaging was sturdier than I was expecting, with a cardboard case that would be perfect for travelling. Inside the kit there are three highlighter shades (from left to right Vanilla, Banana, Sand) and three contour shades (Java, Fawn and Havana). All the shades are matte with the exception of the Sand highlighter, which has a slight shimmer without being glittery.
I could hardly wait to experiment with this kit when I got home and I instantly fell in love with the Fawn contour shade, perfect for my skintone, and the Banana yellow-tone highlighter for the under-eye area. The surprise hit for me though with this kit was the Sand highlighter! I have an abundance of highlighters and wasn't all that excited about the Sand shade at first, but on application I really loved the way it looks. Unlike my usual go-to highlighter (Soft and Gentle by MAC) Sand is not glittery and gives a very subtle, dewy look without you looking like you're wearing anything at all. It genuinely looks so natural, as though your face is bathed in natural light, and I am sure this will become a firm favourite of mine the more I use it,
I can't wait to try this kit before a night out for a more dramatic contouring look. At £39.00 I think the price is pretty reasonable for six shades, although I do feel like Havana may be a little on the orange side for me so may not get that much use.
