Â â€œIf your eyes are the windows to your soul, your eyebrows are the curtains.â€
Iâ€™d like to thank the anonymous beauty babe who came up with that bit of wisdom â€“ and Iâ€™m sure eyebrow expert to the stars Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills would, too.Â Anastasia has built a legacy creating products that cater to the brow-obsessed, and her 2011 Christmas Holiday Gift Sets do not disappoint.
Â Iâ€™ve been a longtime fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills, but up until now had only used a select few products. Naturally, I was psyched to see what the Holiday Sets had in storeâ€¦
BRIGHT EYES, BIG CITY â€“ Nordstrom, $39
This kit is awesome. Itâ€™s a great sampling of products that contains everything you need for a perfectly polished brow: clear eyebrow gel, tweezers, brow powder, and a selection of illuminating products that keep your eye area looking dewy. If youâ€™re just jumping into brow shaping, this is the kit for you.
ALL EYE WANT PALLETE â€“ Sephora, $32
This eyeshadow kit comes complete with 9 stunning neutrals, a mini mascara, and the Anastasia signature clear brow gel. The shadow lasted me through a workday, and it was easy for me to transition into a nighttime look by playing around with the colors a bit.
KISSES ON MY LIST â€“ Sephora, $30
This limited edition gift set comes with six lip glosses in a spectrum of pouty pinks and neutral shades. Perfect for the holiday season, youâ€™ll be looking kissable when standing under that mistletoe.
Ultimately, my favorite set was â€œBright Eyes, Big Cityâ€, but any of the kits are a great way to introduce a friend (or treat yourself!) to the brand. The eye sets have a nice variety of products, with shadow highlighters and colors that suit all skin tones, and the lip gloss collection will leave your lips plump and color-perfect.
