Love the colours, they're so beautiful and pigmented. There's a lot of kick off with the matte shadows which is the only bummer. But overall a must have!

Editing my review: after a year of having this palette and wanting to love it so bad it just doesn’t work. I’m an NC 15 and the colours DEFINITELY wear ME. It just doesn’t look right and no matter what I do they muddy up into a mess. I will keep trying... I bought myself too faced sweet peach and they work way better for my cool toned skin and blue eyes.

This was a miss for me altough shadows are of great quality. Mainly because i fell for hype not thinking if the colour range is good for me. So if you have fair to light skin with yellow undertones, blue/ gray eyes and neutral to cool blonde hair, think again if you think of buying it. Ive found that most looks i can get from this dont suit my complexion/eyes/hair.

Best palette by ABH I prefer this over any over her previous palettes. The colors are beautiful and very pigmented! A little goes a long way.

I was lucky enough to snap this up relatively cheaply via Depop absolutely brand new, I sought it for its gorgeous cranberry colours as I really took a liking to the trend this Autumn. First I want to say I love the packaging, true to Anastasia style with a dusty rose velour covering, absolutely lush.
There isn't a single colour I don't love in this palette, they're really wearable and all of the colour families can be put together to create a multitude of looks, I particularly liked playing around with the orange shades and using the brown shades to deepen it up.
The blending ability of these shadows are seamless really helped with the brush that comes with the palette.
Although very pretty I find the shimmer shades hard to work with, when watching tutorials the women seem to be able to pack the shimmer shades really heavily onto the lid, when I try it doesn't adhere very well and goes on quite sheer. I've tried using setting spray which helps quite a bit but I'm not comfortable spraying expensive product onto a brush as I feel this is wasteful, I tried using a Nyx setting spray but this created a film over the shadow in the pan which I had to carefully scratch off. This quality of these particular shadows led me to think I may have been duped into buying a fake but I took it to a friend that works in the industry and she confirmed it's authenticy. My only other negative about the palette is the amount of fallout I get on nearly all the shadows, it's not only wasteful as it sots in the pan and you have to blow it all away but it jeopardises your base makeup when it falls off the brush and onto the cheeks.

This is a really good palette. The colors are so soft and buttery, but there is quite a bit of fall out. The main point of my review is to get a few dupes out there for anyone that hasn't been able to get their hands on this..

Tempera is a light pinkish/cream color pretty close to many others. Booty call (naked 2) virgin (naked 1) crepe (lorac mega pro 3)..

Golden Ochre is a soft yellow toned brown. It's great in the crease. I don't have a dupe.

Vermeer is an almost exact dupe for sin from the UD Naked palette

Buon Fresco is very close to dusty muave (LMP3) and close to nooner (Naked 3)

Antique Bronze - MAC dark brew - Sequioa (LMP3)

Love Letter - No dupe for me

Cypress Umber - Espresso from the Lorac Pro

Raw Sienna - MAC saddle - Terracotta from LP3

Burnt Orange - Tawny (LMP 3) - Peanut Butter (TF Chocolate Bar Semi Sweet)

Primavera - Cava (LMP 3)

Red Ochre - no dupe - somewhat close to Goji LMP 2

Venetian Red - similar to rich berry from smashbox light it up blush palette

Warm Taupe - zone (UD gwen stefani) cool taupe (lorac 3)

Realgar - no dupes from me

So, all in all, the real stand outs of this palette are the reds and oranges. Love letter, red ochre and realgar were unique to my pretty neutral based collection. It makes for a good handful of different looks from this palette. The package says to discard after 6 months and I did notice that even with clean brushes these shadows seem to get bumps and grit in them. They are very loosely packed and make a dent pretty quickly.

I don't regret this palette in any way, I like it. It just fits that one little area of my collection that I don't have (cranberry, red and orange) and I reach for it when I am in the mood for that look. I do feel that the shadows are not very long wearing even with a primer. They sometimes muddy together and even fade. It is a solid palette and I would recommend it to true make up lovers that just love having the newest thing - but not a must have. (Not that you should take my word for it because obviously I HAD to have it)

This is my first Anastasia Palette and probably going to be my only. I was easily able to pass on the Mario Palette and if the trend keeps up that they raise the price and lower the amount of product, I can pass on all of the rest.

To begin with, I own a lot of makeup but I am not very skilled in makeup. I always do eye looks with less than three shadows because I am not that good at blending and i always look muddy if I try to do smoky eyes. I was drawn to this palette because of the colour selection and those are my favourite combination of shades I've ever seen in a palette! However I really dislike it the first few times I used it because the shadows are way too pigmented and it is hard to control. I used a fluffy brush and a crease brush but ended up looking really muddy. Until one day I tried out the brush that came with the palette and it made a lot difference because of the size and shape of the tapered side was way more suitable than brushes I used before. I tried to create a smokey look and it worked ( what I mean by it worked is that I dare to go out with the look ). I began to fall in love with this palette again because I found a way for this to work for beginners and people like me that doesn't know a lot about blending shadows like a professional. Plus for my daily looks, I can simply use one of the beautiful shades in combination with my other less pigmented shadows to look even more natural! Plus it was distinguishable that these shadows last longer than my urbandecay and Mac. Glad I didn't return it at the first place but gave it chances and tried to make it work !

I love this palette. It's a lovely addition to a collection if you're lacking in warm toned palettes, or if you simply just love warm toned eyeshadows! The pigmentation is beautiful. The only downside to this palette is that the two light shimmery shades (vermeer & primavera) are extremely similar, and are frankly, not that good. They're weirdly chalky. They still work, but are very powdery and don't come across as shimmery as I'd like. Another thing is that Love Letter & Venetian Red look almost identical. They could've easily added something more unique. The last issue that I have is that the packaging gets dirty extremely easily and looks hideous if you use it regularly!

I just love half of the colors and will probably never use the other half... it's still worth it for the price but I think it's weird they chose to put all of those colors together.

This is a very nice set of shadows. Warm toned, they blend well and there is a nice array in terms of types of consistencies. The pigmentation is crazy but with that comes fall out so be warned. These colors certainly go well with this winter's trend of reddish hues and since I have always been a fan of warmer shades I am pleased to see them here. [Caveat: To be honest, however, I feel that there are a couple of shadows that look very similar to each other or at least come off that way when blended on the eye.] Overall I would recommend this palette if you like the warmer, reddish colors in shadows. Although a bit more expensive than some other Anastasia shadow collections, this is probably worth the money.
