I just received the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette in the mail today! I haven’t used any of the shadows yet, so this post is going to be my first impression.
Let’s first start with the packaging. I personally love the way they designed this palette! I love the colors and the way that it looks almost painted. I love that they included a mirror and a brush too! It is a great size because it isn’t too large like many palettes can be. It can easily be carried in your purse or to travel with.
These colors are extremely pigmented. One swipe and that’s all you need. The colors range from neutral to bright and bold.
Matte Shadows: Dusty Rose, Blue Velvet, Phresh, Coal
Velvet Shadows: Augergine, Punch Fuschia, Buttery
Shimmery Shadows: Unicorn, Orange You Fancy, Beigely, Anaconda, Baby I’m a Star
Anastasia’s Website describes these colors as:
Buttery: A matte, buildable beige
Dusty Rose: A soft, satiny mauve
Phresh: A vibrant, happy yellow
Blue Velvet: A deep, intense navy
Orange You Fancy: A fiery, burnt orange
Beigely: A glimmering, neutral greige
Coal: A sultry, inky black
Anaconda: A sparkling, jungle green
Punch Fuschia: A vibrant orchid hue
Unicorn: A shimmering periwinkle
Baby, I’m a Star: A copper-flecked brown
Aubergine: A moody, eggplant purple
This is a palette that you could bring with you on a trip and would be the only one that you need to bring. You could do a soft look using Buttery on the lid and lightly blending Dusty Rose into it. For more of a dramatic and bold look, you could use Blue Velvet on the lid, Dusty Rose as a transition color, and a little bit of Coal blended into the crease. This palette is very versatile in my opinion, and great for anybody who already loves color, or wants to start adding color into their makeup.
