Extend Your Summer Glow with Anastasia Beverly Hills!

I would show you the before photo but my camera refused to capture that look! 

 

I lucked out with an end of summer cold, besides the sniffles I was starting to look like I live under a rock.  I had a last minute invite to girls night I couldn’t pass up. Dinner and cocktails heal all right? My only worry was  how I was going to hide the look of a nasty head cold. Enter a beautiful gift that arrived in the mail from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

I started with the Highlighting Crème Duo, I love how light it is and how it instantly brightened my face. I have to say the blush shade was a little on the light side but I loved the creamy texture. Then to add a little color I swept the Ilummin8 Bronzer on my T zone and under my cheek bones. Low and behold I was starting to look like a real live girl!

The piece de resistance was the HydraFull Gloss. At first glance I thought the color was pretty but it was just another gloss. Well that must have been the Nyquil talking this stuff is AMAZING! The color wasgreat but the real benefit of this gloss is how amazing it feels on my lips. My lips get so dry in the summer with the sun, wind and outdoor activities and a lot of my glosses seem to only make it worse. Within minutes of applying HydraFull Gloss my lips felt smoother and really hydrated. I noticed hours later my lips still felt soft even after the gloss had faded. I am really excited about this gloss if you know me prepare for me to hold you down if need be to make you try it!
