Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills HydraFull Gloss


Snapped this polaroid of myself a few days ago, after waking up to find my hair unusually...wavy that morning. Today marks the end of the week's grueling and hellish tests, and hopefully, I didn't do badly in them (will know next week!). 

And what so special about this photo and how does it relate to this blog post's title? The answer, my lovelies, is that I was wearing pink pink lipgloss that gave the lips extra shine! 

Previously, I was contacted byAnastasia Beverly Hills to do a product review of their eyebrow kit. However, they sent me their HydraFull Gloss instead, and now I am the lucky girl that gets to review two products, once they send me the eyebrow kit later! I love lip gloss, they look and feel better than lipstick and sometimes, you just feel all glamourous and glittery with lipgloss on.  

These beauties really do make your lip really hydrated. I was impressed by how the rich formula of the gloss hydrated my lips, especially since it contains ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil. It lasted pretty long too, pretty much all the time I was in school. Washed off fine and left no trace! 


Also, it smells really good, and yet doesn't leave any taste on your lips at all. You can hardly feel it on your lips because it's quite light. It also came with a paddle applicator instead of the usual brush, and that's good because I usually end up applying too much with brush and end up having to wipe some off using tissues, which wastes the precious tube of gloss. Here, the paddle is cleaner and applies less at a time. 


One little thing was that didn't come in any packaging, it was just a tube wrapped in an envelope. I was a bit disappointed because I thought it would come in something a bit special. Apart from that, the tube feels sturdy and strong and certainly won't unscrew or uncap when you stuff it in your purse, or throw it in the handbag when you're in a hurry! 


Did I mention how much I love the color ? I chose the flamingo pink and it's gorgeous. Makes the lips more pink and bright, and you know, you look younger with pink lips! They have a whole range of colors, from nearly orange to deep red, which is suitable for everyone's tastes. 

Overall Rating: 3.5 / 5 stars


I would like to once again thank Anastasia from Beverly Hills for giving me this product. It is definitely for keeps and do visit her website, which sells all kinds of makeup and glosses of different color.

***

Did I mention how much I adore polaroid photos ? :) They are so vintage. Someone told me I look like a  ghost in the first picture .... 

Do let me know what you think - of both your opinion of lip gloss and polaroids! (note: I'm also going to host my first giveaway soon, to thank you all for reading and leaving me kind messages, and for approaching 300 followers, so stay tuned!)

  12. I love glosses too, I use them in place of lipsticks. Pink gloss is a must! Great minds think alike (ha!). How did you sleep and get such nice wavy hair? You have to teach me, my hair is always in a mess when I wake up.
