Now, I love getting stuff to try out from companies, but I won't advertise it, praise it, or even give it away if I don't actually love it myself. But I do have kind words to say about these two products from Anastasia.
I wear mascara every day, but I avoid waterproof ones because they tend to be clumpy and heavy. The waterproof top coat I got from Anastasia is clear, and it goes on top of whatever mascara you're currently coveting (Maybelline's Falsies line!) and instantly makes it waterproof. Surprisingly, it does so without adding much heft, which is much appreciated, especially now that the weather is warming up and I'll undoubtedly be battling Houston humidity (aka "the slayer of of mascara") on a regular basis.
The brow kit is lovely -- it comes with a brow wax to keep brows in place, a brow powder, eyeshadow, and something to add that little highlight right under your brows. I only recently forayed into filling in my eyebrows, so I'm still kind of a novice at it. The kit comes with stencils as well, but I didn't find them very useful because I have no idea how someone's supposed to hold a stencil with one hand and do a good job at filling in the stencil with the other. I'm just not that dexterous. But, I do like the brow powder and wax -- both go on velvety smooth, and the you don't need a lot of the powder to get a really rich color. The angled mini brush (included in the kit) is easy enough even for me to use.
In this giveaway, the winner will get the brow kit and waterproof mascara top coat -- both of which will be brand new and unopened, for the record. The brow kit is best suited for someone with dark brows, but you can always give it away to a lovely brunette in your life if you can't use it for yourself. GOOD LUCK!
