Anastasia of Beverly Hills: product I've tried and want to try

"Anastasia has long been the definitive eye and brow expert for icons such as Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah as well as hip and up-and-comers like Diana Agron, Selena Gomez and Kristen Cavalari and has recently expanded into colors that match their superior standards for skincare based cosmetics."

I've tried various Anastasia brow products in the past couple of years and recently tried their Illumin8 Youth Synergy Complex Eyeshadow Palette in No. 2. 

Here are some Anastasia products I've tried:
(click on each product picture/link for price and details)

This was one of my first non-brow product from Anastasia and it was a pleasant surprise. For my full review of this product click HERE.

This mascara is supposed to "thicken and curl lashes with one stroke." The non-clumpy (which I love!) creamy formula was bit on the dry side (I've tried a mini size as well as full size version of this mascara). It gave me nice thick natural looking lashes but it didn't help to curl my lashes (maybe my lashes are just too straight to be curled without a lash curler).

Anastasia Lash Curler, Mascara, and Clear Brow Gel set 
(this set is no longer available for sale)
The lash curler was just not right for my eyes. I keep it around for days I can't find my Shiseido or Shu lash curlers... The mini sized clear brow gel was conveniently sized for travelling.

This is one of favourite tool for brows. The brush is soft yet stiff enough for precise application and having a spooley on the other end is so convenient. I love this!

Great tweezer! Very precise! I love it!

This is one of the best brow powders I've ever tried! It comes with two (light and dark) shades. I like to apply the lighter shade on inner part of brows and darker shade on the outer part and blend the two to create natural looking brows. It's light-weight and smudge proof. And with six duo colors to choose from, everyone's bound to find their perfect match!

This product is meant to tint both the skin and the brow hairs. It's perfect for days when you don't have an angled brush/spooley or when you are in a rush. This is one of those products that may take few tries to get used to and if you don't completely get how to use it you will probably hate it. Me? I don't love it, but I do like it.

This is a great product to tint brow hairs. It's good for people that want to darken their brow hairs but not to fill in hairless brow parts. It's long lashing and non flaky. Another great brow product!

This product is over-priced for what it does. It's just a clear mascara! Yet, I have at least 3 of these  (one on my dresser, mini sized one in my makeup bag, and another one in my makeup traincase); only because my local drug stores don't carry clear mascaras anymore! They used to have clear mascara/brow gel from Maybeline and Cover Girl for few dollars each but I can't seem to find them anymore.

Anastasia has released many new interesting products that I'm eager to try. I love how most of her products are developed with skincare in mind. The prices aren't cheap but they are also not overly pricey. Some are priced very reasonably for the high quality that's put in to them.

Here's Anastasia showing us how to create perfect brows.

What's your favourite Anastasia product? Or what Anastasia product do you want to try?
