Today I thought I'd show you the Anastasia Beverly Hills Spring 2013 offering, the Bold and Beautiful Kit! If you like neutral shades and defined, groomed brows then this would be a great kit to check out.
Very nice, simple packaging presented like a two box set--one set is for the brows, the second is for the eyes. I love that the palettes are nice and thin but I do think there is a lot of empty cardboard space. If they made them even smaller it would be even more convenient for travel.
The brow set comes with a waxy brown shade on the left and a cool toned ashy taupe brow powder. The pomade holds the brows in really nicely, does not come out too dark and is lightly pigmented so it is buildable--i think if your brows are not too light or too dark it would work nicely. The brow gel works a bit better for holding very unruly brows in place, but if you only need a little bit of hold, the pomade is perfect! I really like the powder too--I thought it might be a little too cool toned but in combination with the pomade (which is slightly warmer) it works really well with my brow color! I LOVE the mini set of tweezers. They work great and are super easy to travel with! Lastly there is the angled brush with a spoolie that does the job well.

The set is $36 and available now at Nordstrom, & Anastasia but will be available at Sephora and Ulta soon! I think this kit is a great buy, especially if you love brows and neutrals. What would be even better is if you could buy just one half of the kit for half the price--mostly because I am in love with the brow kit and have been using it nonstop! I have too many eyeshadows for my own good!
What do you think of the Bold & Beautiful Kit?! Is this something you would use?
