Lipstick -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Liquid Lipstick

I like this liquid lipstick a lot. I have the shade “Ashton” which is a beautiful burnt orange/sienna on my lips. I always use a lipliner underneath (typically in a deeper shade to add depth) and it lasts really well—usually for 3-4 hours if I’m not eating.

I’ve used the applicator wand to apply it and it’s not my preferred method as it takes a lot of precision and can leave too much product on my lips. I use my finger to dab the product on and the effect is excellent; my lips look pillowy and full of colour that is long-lasting and less dry than if I use the applicator.

I like this product but it’s on the more expensive side, however I do feel like the price is decent as it’s the best liquid lipstick I’ve tried thus far. It has no fragrance and has big colour payoff. A little goes a long way so I imagine the tube will last me a while. It also lasts well even if I layer chapstick on top, and that helps with keeping my lips hydrated which is important to me.

An issue that I think some people won’t like is that it does settle into the lines in my lips. It doesn’t bother me at all, but I can see how it would bother others. It also dries very quickly so it’s a lipstick that has to be worked with very quickly.

Overall I’d definitely buy again. 9/10.



Palettes -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Sultry Eyeshadow Palette

This is an ok palette for me, but it was nearly amazing. A while ago I figured out I don’t like Anastasia’s formula in palettes. I like their singles fine, but not really the palettes. I struggled with the formula of Norvina. So I had no intention of buying this one at all. But then I swatched it and suckered into it. Cyborg is what got me.
So the packaging is a rough glitter cardboard. The glitter didn’t rub off which is cool. And it shines so bright under certain lights. It’s small and compact. It has the usual brush which is ok.
The mattes are creamy and thick. I prefer a drier formula so I have to use a super light hand. They are quite powdery. The dark brown turns kind of muddy grey though and doesn’t retain its richness on the eye. And the taupe brown looks just like warm taupe from MR. Usually Anastasia Mattes show up much darker on me then they swatch but these weren’t too bad. I don’t love the matte formula but I can use it.
The shimmers are more dense and less squishy than the Norvina shimmers which is another reason I decided to give it a shot. I hated how soft Norvina shimmers were. But they loose a little umph when applied. You can use fix plus to help but they fade a bit throughout the day. Applying with a finger also helps. But they just aren’t as bright as you’d expect. I thought pearl would be the perfect inner corner highlight but I never popped.
Overal I enjoy the color story. The cooler shades drew me in and I really like the pop of coral. It’s a muted coral and quite wearable. But the color selection fell flat for me because half the shimmers look the same or nearly the same on the eye. And every palette has a gold. I loved the idea of pearl, cyborg, and rose quartz (they all performs differently than I expected). But cinder, teak, steampunk, and ember all were too similar on the eye. I wish there had been a cool taupe shimmer instead of one of those because they are all warm. The only cool shimmer is cyborg, and it swatched like a warm silver but applies much lighter and bright initially, then fades. I also felt like there were a lot of shimmers in the palette. I wish there had been one or two more mattes with more variation between those bronzy browns.
I wanted to love this palette, but I love the idea of it more than the reality. And every shade is dupeable. Inglot has a beautiful dupe for cyborg. And the mattes are all in other Anastasia palettes. The grey is close to MAC copperplate. And the shimmers all look the same. MAC tempting or Urban Decay Smog works as a dupe for them all.
If you have a small eyeshadow collection, like shimmers and neutrals, this may be for you. But it wasn’t for me.


Highlighters -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Sugar Glow Kit

These are great highlighters that work on fair skin. They have a metallic finish. However, they do emphasize texture.

Palettes -Anastasia Beverly Hills -Subculture

Here is my story: I loved the color scheme. I find it very flattering and very inspiring. But after reading all the reviews and watching all the youtube videos on it, I decided to give it a pass. Then, I found the Revolution (Iconic Division) dupe in store and thought I would give it a try. I loved loved the Revolution one. I had some pigmentation/blendability issues, but really nothing noteworthy. I loved the texture of several shades. I used the palette a lot and got several compliments on my eyeshadow looks from other people, which never really happens.
Then I though that for ethical reasons, if I liked the dupe so much, I should buy the original, since the creative work of putting these shades together should be compensated. Paid full price. I wish I could return it. It is that bad. Shades do not blend, have a different color on the pan vs. lid, skip, turn grey, and worst of all lift - as in leave bald patches that never fill. They can also vanish when you blend, making you have to continue to pack on. I don't even know how it is possible to have all these problems together from only one formula. Yes, we have to both build very slowly and pack on a lot, and we have to both blend a lot and avoid blending.
I still love the looks I get, and I can use it, but I take about three times longer with this palette to do my eye look, compared to with the Revolution dupe. Disclaimer: maybe this is because I got used to the other one first.

In sum, do I recommend it? Yes, although I recommend more the Revolution one. Most times you will get a beautiful look. And there are a good variety of looks you can achieve. Just be aware that you might sometimes have to wipe the eyeshadow off and start all over again. Even if this never ever happens to you.
