Summer is here, baby! Well, it was actually like 55 degrees here yesterday but you’d never know that from looking at my face! 😉
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Summer Collection was recently released and I couldn’t resist the urge to pick up a couple of these beauties! I ordered the Waterproof Creme Color in Coral Reef and Barbie Pink as well as my first Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, Unicorn, which is also a new shade released with the Summer Collection.
Waterproof Creme Color
Anastasia Beverly Hills has successfully knocked it right out of the park with their new Waterproof Creme Colors! I’ve been using this product in Jet for a while now and really love it as an eyeliner. I was a little worried that these bright colors might not be as well pigmented or as long lasting as Jet but I was, luckily, very wrong.
The pigmentation of Coral Reef and Barbie Pink is totally insane! They are SO bright! I feel like I could spot these on someone across the room because they practically glow!
These set quickly and once they do, they’re good to go for a long, long time! I wore both of these shades all day and they still looked perfect at the end of the night. Coral Reef even managed to stick to my waterline all day and that’s no easy feat!
I could probably ramble on and on all day long about how much I love these but there’s no point. The bottom line is I love them. The pigmentation is insane, the staying power is extremely impressive and the brightness of them just makes me giddy! If you’re looking for some fun color for the summer, you definitely should check out the Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Colors!
Coral Reef and Barbie Pink are blindingly bright and I love them for it!
With the launch of the Summer Collection, two new liquid lipstick shades were released, Craft and Unicorn.
I honestly wasn’t so sure about Unicorn when I ordered it. I’ve been eyeing these Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick for a long time now and already have a few shades in mind that I want (NEED) but this post is about the Summer Collection so that’s the route I took! Craft is a lovely color but it wasn’t really screaming “summer!” to me so I opted for Unicorn to keep the theme going.
So I put on this lipstick for the first time and I honestly was shocked by how much I really love it! It’s such a striking purpleish-pink that can be dressed up or dressed down and it made it just in time for summer.
A few minutes after applying the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn, I noticed that my lips still felt slightly tacky and I was starting to think these took a really long time to set or something. I kissed my hand to see if it would transfer and guess what? Not a speck of transfer! My lips were not still wet. This formula sets and becomes transfer proof while also maintaining a level of moisture for your lips, which I think is absolutely amazing! I find that often times matte liquid lipsticks dry down to that very matte, almost papery finish, which is generally fine by me but I was very surprised by how moisturizing this product is for a liquid lipstick!
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Unicorn held up like a damn champ all day long without ever being dry or uncomfortable. Eating, drinking, kisses, naps, whatever you throw it’s way, this lipstick is going to triumph!
Now I just need to compose myself a little and not run out and buy a dozen more shades of these lipsticks. Here’s to hoping. 😛
What do you think of the Anastasia Summer Collection? Have you guys gotten a chance to try out these liquid lipsticks yet? Share your thoughts with me! <3
