Swatches & Review: Anastasia Kisses on My List Lip Gloss Set

Anastasia Kisses on My List
I'm so happy that I've had the opportunity to do so many fabulous lip product reviews lately. This is definitely one review I'm very excited to share with you guys!

I recently tried Anastasia Sugar Pink Hydrafull lip gloss and loved it, so I reached out to my contact at Anastasia and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to review their Kisses on My List lip gloss set! If you follow my blog you know my love of lip products. I'm sure you can imagine how thrilled I was to try these ;)

Anastasia's Kisses on My List set is a holiday lip gloss set that includes 6 super luxurious, gorgeous shades.

I just want to note that Anastasia Hydrafull lip glosses have a spatula style applicator tip. Generally I'm a bigger fan of doe foot applicators, but the more I use glosses with the spatulas, the less I seem to notice a difference in using them. These glosses are not very sticky for those of you that hate sticky glosses. Hydrafull lip glosses have been created to keep lips super hydrated and full, infused with some amazing ingredeints like Jojoba oil, Shea butter, and Anastasia's exclusive Balkan Botanical Infusion.



Check them out!

Barely Hydrafull Lip Gloss
Color description: Smooth, solid nude shade

My opinion: I really like this gloss, it looks nice and feels great. I love the way these glosses really do smooth out the overall look of your lips. I like nude colors and this one is subtle enough that even those that aren't quite sure about wearing nudes will probably love it anyway!

Cameo Hydrafull Lip Gloss
Color description: Frosty, super light pearl pink with sparkle

My opinion: This color is so pretty and delicate, it almost screams bridal to me--in a good way! Despite it's super soft, feminine color, it has just enough sparkle to make it a great festive choice.

Guava Hydrafull Lip Gloss
Color description: Guave pink shade with sparkle

My opinion: This is the type of pretty pink gloss that I'd leave in my purse to use whenever/wherever! 

Guava Hydrafull  lip gloss - it's actually a touch pinker in person than it looks here

Lychee Hydrafull Lip Gloss
Color description: Milky pink with lots of sparkle

My opinion: I like that this set includes two super light shades. I think they're very flattering in the winter, especially with a darker eye. Lychee is not identical to Cameo. Cameo is definitely lighter and has more silvery sparkle than Lychee.

Nectar Hydrafull Lip Gloss
Color description: Sparkly medium pink

My opinion: Like Guava, Nectar is another staple pink lip gloss in my opinion.

Nectar Hydrafull lip gloss - Isn't the sparkle pretty?

Sugar Pink Hydrafull Lip Gloss
Color description: Barbie pink with some sparkle

My opinion: This is the Anastasia Hydrafull lip gloss I originally tried and I was so excited to see it in this set! I love pinks like this when it comes to lip products!

Price
This set is priced at $30 retail.

Where to Buy
This set can be purchased at Sephora as well as on Anastasia's website HERE  

Final Thoughts
I love, love, love this set and the price is so unbelievable. $30 for 6 glosses of this quality? Sold! Given the fact that individual Hydrafull glosses retail at $21 a piece, this set is well worth the price. That aside, these are some of the most hydrating glosses I've ever tried and they really do give my lips a smoother appearance. I also love that they don't include some of my least favorite ingredients--parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, phthalates, GMOs, and triclosan. All in all, this is definitely one of my favorite holiday gift sets at the moment! I'd love to try some of the other Hydrafull shades available individually--Sorbet, Bellini, Sangria, and Flamingo. Can you really ever have enough lip gloss? I tend to think not ;) 

If you're interested in this set definitely jump on it soon because it's a limited edition set released for the holidays. Speaking of which, what beauty stores are you planning to hit on Black Friday?
