Hey guys, as we get closer and closer to Christmas day, I kind of want to know – does anyone else start to feel, lethargic? It starts out I’m so excited, and happy for the holiday, it’s a fairy tale in motion almost, then, I’m in a endless line up of shoppers, endless family members, crazy drivers, I say it every year about giving my time to people who need it, or helping at a shelter or donating and I mean to do it but I always forget, and I know I’m not the only one who has the thought, we are always told, it’s the thought that counts, so that’s it then, I can feel good because I did have the thought to do it, so why do I feel lost this time of year. Just so everyone knows, I did go to the shelter and offer my time before it became the after thought of the year. I guess we need to keep the faith and don’t forget the reasons why, whatever your ‘why’ is.

Anyway, let’s talk about the new PR out from Anastasia Beverly Hills – Which I believe is actually available to buy for you guys which is super cool! I am going to be donating these this year because everything that is in the PR is sold separately which means already have it from past launches or maybe I will do an Instagram giveaway but I am still doing the iPhone XR giveaway right now (BEAUTY NEWS / LIFE 101 / WINTER SKIN YOU’D KILL FOR / IPHONE XR GIVEAWAY (CANADA)| MAKEUPANDTHECITY) so we shall see what happens. I have also noticed that it seems to be a process to subscribe to a WordPress blog, if you don’t have any account.
SIDE NOTE ➡️ It’s about your stats, daily visits, views, what was read, there is also an option if you don’t make an account to just enter an email and you are sent a link anytime a post goes live – that is just as well because I still have disabled likes and comments for personal reason, unless you are a WordPress admin the your like / comment will show through no matter what but anyways I just wanted to let you know for the giveaway, my IG is more personal but I guess what is the point of that, follow me on Instagram if you want to win, and from new followers that is how I will choose the winner I will also screen record from the giveaway site so you see I’m being fair.
So the holiday PR came in two boxes this year, and within the first box I opened I saw something that I thought Anastasia Beverly Hills should have done for along time now – a eyeshadow vault and it was really nicely done also. Unfortunately the Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette Collection is a limited edition set of 4 iconic ABH eye shadow palettes: Modern Renaissance, Prism, Soft Glam and Subculture, companies always say that something is ‘limited edition’ and they always bring it back so I don’t want to say get it before it’s gone because it is sold out right now on the website, but they are restocking is so if it truly was limited, then it would be once it is gone, it’s gone but being restocked – feel me?
➡️ Each palette contains 14 eye shadow shades, from essential neutrals and vibrant shimmer shades to bright pops of color and each palette includes a dual-ended brush and a large mirror inside its travel-friendly packaging.
➡️ ABH is committed to cruelty-free product formulation, testing, and development which is a huge plus within the beauty community and extended.
If you haven’t seen these palettes or don’t own them, lets break them down by each palette, Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette is more warm, romantic shades with intense color payoff. Prism Eye Shadow Palette is more universal neutrals and prismatic metallic shades and I personally love using this palette on set. Soft Glam Eye Shadow Palette is pretty much an essential neutral palette works with all skin tones and the color payoff is beautiful. Subculture Eye Shadow Palette is more edgy, grungy mattes and bold metallic shades – there was a lot of hype around this palette and when it came out it was a little underwhelming. It sell’s for $90.00US which is extremely good savings.
Next was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Holiday Pyramid Collection with an assortment of 8 shades of ultra-reflective metallic cosmetic glitters for face, body and hair. The Pyramid also came with 3 Mini Metallic Liquid Lipsticks in limited-edition shades – And included 4 Mini Lip Glosses also in limited-edition shades which nice to get some new during the holidays from a brand – Vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free as well. This is available only online and sells for $150.00US, Packaging is a big plus because it is beautiful looks good on a vanity.
Next I got 2, 10 piece Liquid Lips from sets from ABH and I’m not going to go to far into details because we all know what a liquid lip is by now and we all know how they apply them. What I will mention is there is two sets for Fair – Light skin tone (Containing 2 new nude shades and 8 favorite shades) and Medium – Deep. Containing 8 new nude shades and 2 favorite shades – Each lip color features ABH’s full-pigment liquid formula that applies seamlessly and dries down to a weightless matte finish for smudge-proof wearability. This sells for $60.00US, and it very much so worth the price point.
There was 1 more item but I’m going to save it for a upcoming post, along with a promise made from a different post not to far back! Don’t forget to follow me on IG for your chance to win the giveaway, and try to do something nice for someone else! Love wins!
