Anastasia Wine Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, orange-copper with warm, reddish udnertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a very soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too soft. It wasn’t as dense as some of the other shades I’ve reviewed recently, but it applied well to the lid and blended out easily. On me, the color wore well for eight hours.

Anastasia Truffle Glitter Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a dirty gold sparkle and metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a really smooth, dense, and lightly creamy consistency that applied well to bare skin and blended out well. The only issue I had was that the sparkle does separate a bit from the base as I blended and diffused the edges, though I had only minor fall out after eight hours of wear. Urban Decay Lithium (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Spacetime (P, $22.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Huda Beauty Dubai (LE) is darker (85% similar).

Urban Decay Chase (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Chocolate (Titanium) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a rich, dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had a really dense, almost cream-like consistency that applied beautifully on the skin with rich, opaque, and even coverage. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Mooning (P, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #3 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Merci (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% 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.
