Anastasia Eyeshadows

Anastasia Belize Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish.

Anastasia Brownie Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, golden bronze with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It appears a lot lighter swatched as the shimmer becomes more pronounced than it appears in the pan. The Titanium finish is a lot softer in the pan, as it is almost cream-like and has a much denser quality to it than most of the other finishes in the range. It was intensely pigmented, buttery, and blendable–and it lasted for over night hours like a champ. Too Faced Don't Settle (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Anastasia Chiffon Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium, golden bronze with a metallic sheen. It is a lighter version of Brownie with less khaki/olive tones. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that was dense and buttery, still blendable with great adhesion to bare skin. It was still going strong after nine hours of wear.

Anastasia Chocolate Crumble Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a dark, taupe brown with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The texture was incredibly dense and smooth, and it applied with rich, opaque coverage and blended out easily. It wore well for nine hours on me. Viseart Cashmere #6 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). City Color All Eyes On Me (P, $6.99) is cooler (95% similar). Zoeva Outline (P) is lighter (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Anastasia Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is supposed to be a “finely-milled, highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadow. The brand has a large range of individual eyeshadows that are available as pan-only (no compact to hold them); if you purchase four, you’ll get a 4-well palette for $40 ($10 per eyeshadow), or purchase eight and get an 8-well palette for $70 ($8.75 per eyeshadow). The palettes are thick cardboard palettes with tabs on the side for easy removal/rearranging. There are several different finishes, and the performance can be better or worse depending on the finish, though it also ranges from shade to shade. On average, the formula is semi-opaque to opaque, lightly dusty to buttery, wears seven to nine hours, and is fairly blendable. The Metallic and Titanium finishes seem to be the best-performing to me, but there are some really standout mattes and shimmers as well. I have not tried the sparkle, satin, or velvet finishes as extensively as the other finishes, personally.

* Two eyeshadows in my order arrived broken (Brownie and Chiffon), and I can happily report that ABH said they would send replacements–they didn’t give me any fuss about it.
