This mascara-like product is supposed to be used to tint lashes and brows—which it does well. The downside is that the "Hypercolor" collection is limited to bright colors, and available only in pink, purple, and blue. If you want to enhance your lashes and brow with this kind of color it takes only one or two coats to get the shades to show up on even the darkest lashes and brows.

Aside from the limited shade range, the only other downside is that this product hardens and some flaking may occur, especially on brows that require more product to groom them. A light application works best, but you won't see as much unconventional color.

Used as a mascara, it has issues similar to many other bright-hued options: It doesn't perform as well as standard (black) mascara. Specifically, it doesn't give volumizing or lengthening perks, but it does deliver on the color claim much better than most other colored mascaras.

This product also requires some work to remove it, and removal tends to be messier than with traditional mascara. Use warm water and a silicone-based eye-makeup remover to take it off.

Pros:
  • Color shows up well, even on dark lashes.
  • Adds some length and volume (though not as much as traditional mascara).
  • Water-resistant.
Cons:
  • Difficult to remove.
  • Can flake.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills product line was developed by "definitive eyebrow expert" Anastasia Soare, a woman who owns a chic Beverly Hills salon. Her namesake product line is built around specialty brow products and shaping tools based on her criteria. Although she has expanded the line to include skin-care and other makeup items, the brow products remain the heart of the line; the skin care seems to be little more than an afterthought.

What sets the Anastasia line apart is the wide selection of brow-grooming products and their impressive shade range for natural-looking brows. Overall, the line is a mixture of both good and bad products, at a relatively high price point. We were expecting to find great brow pencils from a line devoted to perfecting the eyebrow, but Anastasia failed miserably with their extremely hard-textured Perfect Brow Pencil.

Their skin-care products also rank low in terms of efficacy and high in terms of misleading claims, and the mascara misses the mark completely. There are a few so-so makeup products you can ignore, and some of the brow kits have a frustrating mix of good products and awful products.

On the flip side, what's great about Anastasia Beverly Hills are their fabulous brow powders, good brushes, brow-taming products, and some helpful products such as Brow Fix, Brow Pen, and Tinted Brow Gel. They also have a beautiful Blush Quad and a couple of good highlighter pencils. Many of the products cater to those who are new to brow shaping (including a brow stencil set), and, depending on your local department store, you may even be able to schedule an appointment with an Anastasia brow specialist who can show you the way, following the namesake company founder's famous Golden Ratio. For more information about Anastasia Beverly Hills, call (800) 310-3773 or visit www.anastasia.net.
