Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit + Brow Pro Palette

Merry Christmas to me!!! I'm on makeup cloud 9 with these palettes. I have heard so many great things about these magical kits by Anastasia Beverly Hills. She is really starting to create some amazing makeup products.

I love that both of these are in books, not cases. Seems easier to open and close to me if you are doing makeup on someone else, or on yourself! Here are my thoughts...

The Contour Kit is perfect for so many reasons. It comes with 6 colors (3 for contouring, 3 for highlighting). The 3 dark shades are all matte. I used the shade 'Java' for contouring/bronzing. There are 2 matte shades for highlighting and one with a hint of shimmer. I set my powder with the yellow, matte highlight color 'Banana'. It is very similar to Ben Nye Banana Powder. 

I love this for the obvious: it is convenient, it is easy to carry with you/travel, it has everything you need in one palette, and it eliminates the need for 6 different compacts (I basically said the same thing 4x- I'm excited). The shades will work for literally EVERY skin tone. You can go as light, dark, natural, or dramatic as you want. Mainly - the products themselves are high quality and easy to apply. The end results are flawless. I highly recommend this to anyone, especially makeup artists. Price: $40 (which I think is a great price for all you get)



Brow Pro Palette This kit contains 22 brow shadows and 1 wax primer. I would mainly recommend this for makeup artists. I'm not entirely sure why any one person would need 22 shades of brow powder! Maybe if you change up your hair color like every week?! Ha! Anastasia knows her brows - so this powder is top notch quality! You would have to spend a bazillion dollars to invest in 22 eyebrow shades (plus primer). For makeup artists, I honestly think this is an absolute must have. You will never get stuck in a situation where you don't have the correct shade. Ever! Price: $88 (Again, for 22 shades you can't beat it!)
