"GOOD BYE SUMMER" Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Colors



We always tend to fall for things who are vibrant and easy to apply. Also the charm increases more when these products are of creamy texture, which means no fall out while applying and no mess.
As summer is leaving now and I thought how about a GOODBYE SUMMER POST featuring the product that was talked about the "most"this year? So here it is

Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Colors

Anastasia Beverly Hills is known as the brow queen but has launched an array of eye-shadows and liquid lipsticks. In her summer 2015 collection she launched these new colorful water proof creme colors which look perfect under the bright in day light and tempted me to buy them ASAP.

My thoughts:

This product is multi-functional because it can be used not only as an eye-liner but also as an eye-shadow base, blush and even as a lip stain (with lip-balm underneath). Also the creme colors are completely odorless, in case you are conscious about the smell of products you are putting on your face. These amazing little gems have crazy intense pigmentation.It appears on skin as vibrant and beautiful as it appears in the jar or pictures you see around on Internet. The texture falls more on the drier side but still it glides effortlessly on the eyes. The color doesn't transfer onto my crease (I have dry lids) as once applied these dry down immediately and don't move until you want them too. The product duration is creditable, maximum stay is 16-hours. Although unlike other cream shadows these colors can't be used as the shadow base as they dry relatively fast so wouldn't give a sticky base to powder colors to cling on. Maria though wants to apply them as eyeliner only (being the eyeliner freak she is *wink wink* ). My personal favorite is Ice blue because I somehow find it more creamy.

P.S :I couldn't remove the swatches on my arm with soap and water even though I scrubbed real hard. To remove the color Norvina suggests an oil based remover, to which I agree.
