Anastasia Teal Shimmer Eyeshadow
Anastasia Teal Shimmer Eyeshadow

Anastasia Teal Shimmer Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium blue with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a dry consistency that was a little loose in the pan and hard to apply to the skin. I had trouble blending it out and keeping it even, as it had a tendency to stick more to certain places. It lasted for six hours on me. Rouge Bunny Rouge Mysterious Tinamou (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Sugarpill Holy Ghost (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar).

Anastasia Fresh Green Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, light-medium grass green with warm, yellow undertones and a satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a powdery consistency that was prone to sheering out. I was only able to get six hours of wear out of this shade. Kat Von D Cult (LE) is warmer (85% similar).

Anastasia Star Blue Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark bluish-purple with a satin shimmer.

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.
