I loved these two glosses. They’re a line Anastasia has brought out, but these two shades are exclusive to the kit. The glosses are thick, but not sticky; they have a slick feel but they really do feel moisterizing. I LOVE THESE! I love the spatula applicator [more commonly found in Asian cosmetics] and the colors are vibrant and lightly stain after some time. They apply with less color; don’t over apply because they will get darker. Great, great glosses. Heiress is a vibrant hot pink; I prefer this to Plastic because it’s a warmer color and something that is, to me, quintessential summer.
Next piece of cosmetics is the eyeshadow duo. They are very buttery and soft; a little powdery because they are so soft, but easy to blend. The duo is a metallic peach and a darker bronze color, two very summer-y colors. They’re great quality and good for the season, but I have many colors similar to this already.
Last but not least, the brow gel. I don’t ever use brow gels, so I had a bit of a learning curve when it came to this, but I figured the best use is to use this after powder/whatever you normally do to your brows to set them. However, I just took pictures of my natural brow and the gel, so you could see the difference there. I liked this, didn’t love it though, mainly because of the color. My brows are very dark and so the color kind of looks a bit off. When I use the Anastasia brow powder and set it using Caramel brow gel it almost glints a bit golden/brown, but I like to think I can pull it off.

Alright! Overall, I loved the glosses. The eyeshadow duo was a nice addition, and the Caramel brow gel wasn’t my cup of tea [too light for me!] but it would be nice for those whose hair color matches it. I thought the kit had great value, and I’d highly recommend it.
