Eye Shadow -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Riviera Eyeshadow Palette

on 3/18/2019 8:43:00 AM

foto

Sails (Matte white), Yacht (Duo Chrome mauvy taupe with a violet shift), Seychelles (Metallic aqua marine), Palermo (Metallic jewel pink), Seaside (Duo Chrome silver with a subtle blue shift), Inheritance (Metallic true gold), Mediterranean (Metallic sky blue), Estate (Matte soft pastel peachy pink), Cabana (Matte muted birch mustard), Coastline (Matte pastel soft peach), Bahamas (Matte bright bold candy hot pink), Monte Carlo (Matte cool mid-tone pink), Cannes (Matte bright violet purple) and Palm (Matte dark chocolate brown)

The colour story is very outside-the-box by ABH standards as there are only three shades that I'd consider as being 'standard neutrals', whilst everything else has some colour; there some lovely, softer, colours that can be used as 'everyday' almost-neutrals, there are glitzy jewel and precious metal tones, and there are two bold colour pops in two of my favourite shades [pink & purple]. You also get a double-ended brush in the palette, with is surprisingly high quality and is something that I regularly use.

The shadows all have great pigmentation, everything is easy to blend & build up, and there's no heavy shimmer/glitter that doesn't adhere to skin and goes everywhere, plus everything is crease & fade resistant. I've not had any issues with shades skipping or oxidizing. Speaking of soft shadow; there is kick-up with most of the shades in this palette when I dip my brushes into the pans, but that is something that never really bothers me as long as the powders apply and perform well, which these do. I keep saying that ABH's shadows are soft, which they are, but the formulas are more Modern Renaissance and Sultry soft and buildable, rather than Subculture and Prism mega pigmentation in one swipe. One thing to bear in mind is that the shades Bahamas, Cannes and Palm are classed as pressed pigments not as eyeshadow, due to the dyes used in the formulas not being approved by the FDA for use on the eyes - this doesn't mean anything for most people, but there may be irritation and/or staining for those with very sensitive skin. 

Seaside and Mediterranean don't look massively dissimilar on my skintone as they are a similar depth - you can easily see a difference individually, but when worn together they bleed and meld into one shade. Almost every shade [Inheritance is the sole exception] contains carmine, so this palette isn't vegan, which will disappoint lots of people.


I've worn about half of the shades in Rivera in all-day looks & have at least played around with every single shade once or twice and can not single out any shade for not performing well, so do not have any serious criticisms for this palette. Very fun and poppy, yet very wearable and cohesive colour story. I very highly recommend this palette to anyone who wants to 'freshen' up their makeup looks as we head towards the spring/summer seasons.

Brows -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Dipbrow Brow Pomade

on 3/6/2019 11:53:00 AM

Out of curiosity I looked at my Sephora order history just to see how long I've had this, and it's been an incredible 5 years that I've been using the same jar, daily, and there's still so much of it left I'll probably have to will it to my grandchildren. This pomade is fantastic. I have naturally dark brows that don't need a lot of filling in, so they get just a touch of this every morning applied with an angled brush. It goes on very smoothly with a natural finish when I use light pressure, but it's also easy to build up even color for nights when I want a more dramatic look. This was the best $18 I've ever spent.

Palettes -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Norvina Eyeshadow Palette

In the Norvina palette you get 14 shadows in a even mix of seven mattes and seven shimmers; Dreamer (Metallic pink champagne), Summer (Foiled golden topaz), Wild Child (Duo chrome frosty pink with a magenta shift), Rose Gold (Metallic rosewood), Celestial (Duo chrome plum with a violet shift), Dazzling (Cool-tone bronze with a violet shift), Drama (Duo chrome aubergine with a cool bronze shift), Base (Matte eggshell), Soul (Matte wisteria), Incense (Matte dusty terra-cotta), Love (Matte mid-tone cool pink), Volatile (Matte warm charcoal), Eccentric (Matte dark burnt orange) and Passion (Matte deep garnet)You also get a double-ended brush, with is surprisingly high quality and is something that I regularly use.

The colour story is very 'me'; you get a nice mix of safer-yet-not-too-generic 'suitable for everyday/work wear' shades in Norvina, with some lovely, softer, colour pops in some of my favourite shadow shades [pink, purple & periwinkle]. The shadows all have fantastic pigmentation, everything is easy to blend & build up, and there's no heavy shimmer/glitter that doesn't adhere to skin and goes everywhere, plus everything is crease & fade resistant. I've not had any issues with shades skipping or oxidizing to feedback - I believe those problems are being caused by people applying too much product and/or over-blending the soft shadows. Speaking of soft shadow; there is kick-up with most of the shades in this palette when I dip my brushes into the pans, but that is something that never really bothers me as long as the powders apply and perform well, which these do.

As the shadows are so soft, it is easy to mix shades together, to create new ones - very handy since there is only one deeper matte shade [Passion] included in this palette, which is a bit of a downside if I'm being critical - Volatile and Incense don't look very dissimilar on my skintone, so I'd have rather had a deeper matte in place of one of them,as most of the mattes are a similar depth.


I really enjoy my Norvina palette and haven't had any issues with the quality or layout - like with Subculture & Prism, I think it's just a question of preferred application technique with the very soft shadow, rather then good batch versus bad patch. I think that if you are used to using softer shadows and aren't a big shadow blender, then this palette will work for you. If you prefer to use a firmer hand for shadow application and love your blending, then you might want to sit this one out.

Blush -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Blush Trio - Peachy Love

foto

Three words "Made In China".

It's $30 and way to pigmented for blush. If you're fair to medium or even tan, unless you apply this very carefully, you can easily make yourself look like a clown. I hate the brand Morphe, but, I mean, just buy that brand's blush instead. Payoff is the same. Wear time is the same, but I guess, if you love packaging, then spend the $30.

Medium-Tan
Works wonderfully on my lightly tanned skin.The darkest color Havana can also be used as a bronzer.The shade 10K(highlighter)a gold color is a beautiful color on tanned skin.Subtle, yet effective.I like subtle highlighting and contouring, so this kit really works for me. I have had this kit for almost 2 years and still a lot of product in it.Although I don't use it everyday.Money well spent.
