Anastasia Icy Eyeshadow
Anastasia Icy Eyeshadow

Anastasia Icy Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is an icy, bluish silver with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage with a really dense consistency–it felt a little cream-like, but it was firm enough that getting pigmentation out of it was harder. The color was buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. NYX Tin (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Just Breathe #1 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Moonshine (LE) is darker (90% similar).

Anastasia Mermaid Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a blackened teal with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff–not nearly as intense as it appeared in the pan–with a blendable consistency that ran a little dry. On me, the color lasted for seven and a half hours. Colour Pop Rhinestone (LE, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Storm Cloud (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Hijack (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Anastasia Midnight Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is an intense, deep black with silver sparkle. The texture was really dense and cream-like, which gave the sparkle something to bind with, so there was a lot less fall out over time and more of the sparkle was noticeable on the lid from the get-go. This shade started to crease after eight hours of wear. Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 16 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D104 Black Diamond (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Raven (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Mirifique (P, $32.00) is darker (85% similar). LORAC Indigo (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Rosette Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm, coppery undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a cream-like, buttery texture that blended beautifully and adhered well to bare skin. The color wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly. MAC Heritage Rouge (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Dior Capital of Light #5 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Pink Sapphire (LE, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (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.

P.S. — That’s all she wrote! I’ve reviewed all the Anastasia eyeshadows that I have.
