When I first received this palette in the mail, I didn’t like it one bit … and to be honest, the colors intimidated me just a little! Then when I swatched the eyeshadows on my hand, I remember thinking, “Who put these colors together?!” I had no clue how I was going to work with this palette without adding eyeshadows from other brands into the combos. However, as with all the palettes on this site, I gave it a chance and kept an open mind. And wowee, am I glad I did! Turns out, I LOVE THIS PALETTE! I have been using it non-stop over the past week and have been discovering looks with it daily. (In fact, there are a couple more I need to add to this post next week LOL)
I found these eyeshadows to be of the same quality as other Anastasia palettes I have worked with – rich pigmentation, easy application, great performance in terms of blendability and longevity. I give it two major thumbs up. If you are looking to add some color into your collection, this is a great palette to consider … and it doesn’t have the hefty price tag like some others do ($30). I ended up really liking this palette on its own, and there are some great combos you can get out of it for everyday looks, despite the appearance of all the bright colors. However, this palette does pair up nicely with other neutral colors and palettes.
