Anastasia of Beverly Hills: Kisses On My List and Want You To Want Me

Happy Wednesday!

"On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was... it's October 3rd."
Besides it being October 3rd, it's also a Wednesday... are you guys wearing pink?
No? Then "you can't sit with us!". Haha, just kidding, Happy National Mean Girls Day!!! ;)

Anyways, for today's post, I just wanted to share with you guys this mini-"haul" of new products I received from Anastasia of Beverly Hills... ready? :D

Here's what I got:

-70s inspired promotional items
-Kisses On My List Volume 2 lip gloss set
-Want You To Want Me kit

Kisses On My List Volume 2 ($30) -

A set of six high-shine glosses in matte and shimmer shades that wear all-day.
Shades are Jolene, Lola, Maggie May, Roxanne, Sharona, and Moi.

Want You To Want Me ($34; $90 value) -

A kit within a clutch. A nod to the glam and decadence of the 1970’s. 
 Kit styled like a clutch and features a removable eye shadow palette for a takeaway touch-up wherever your night takes you. Nine long-wearing eye shadows create a range of looks from neutral to dramatic to smokey.

I will definitely write a review on both Kisses On My List and Want You To Want Me, so please stay tuned for that! :D

In the meantime, I just wanted to put a spotlight on Anastasia of Beverly Hills' excellent campaign/ promotional team -- they seriously have the best and the coolest ideas ever!!!

I don't remember a time when I wasn't impressed with their packaging and promotional items.
Besides excellent quality, Anastasia of Beverly Hills also makes sure that the aesthetic of their products is outstanding.

The Want You To Want Me kit and the Kisses On My List set came with this 70s inspired promotional item -- it's like a record album cover and inside you'll find two cardboard records listing the names of the shades found in both kits -- really clever stuff! :)

They also sent over some face charts to help us make the most out of the Want You To Want Me kit and the Kisses On My List set, just like they did for the She Wears It Well palette.

1. Cherry Bomb: A Garage Band Smokey Eye

Eyes: Platform Wedge and Graphic T's
Lips: Jolene

2. Dancing Queen: A One Brush Rush Look

Eyes: Front Row Center, Brass In Pocket, and Graphic T's

3. Heartbreaker: A Pop-Rock Cut Crease

4. Heart of Glass: A New Wave Winged Eye
