Anastasia Shadow Couture Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Shadow Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($30.00 for 0.30 oz.) incldues twelve eyeshadows. Five of the twelve shades are available as individual shades from the brand’s permanent range of eyeshadows. They’re housed in slim cardboard with an interior mirror and dual-ended brush (which is okay, nothing amazing but usable). Some shades are good, some are so-so, and a few are misses. For the price point, you may find that using primer to solve at least half of the issues I experienced with some of the under-performing shades and make it still “worth it” as a result. The most troublesome shades were Heirloom (brings down the palette from B range to near C+ range!), Spoiled, and Chic.

Anastasia Artist Palette

Anastasia Artist Palette ($30.00 for 0.30 oz.) is described as a set of “12 highly-pigmented eyeshadows” in “summertime’s bright colors.” There are two really disappointing shades in this–the navy blue and cobalt blue–that look like an absolute disaster on the skin without a white base underneath. In general, I have found Anastasia’s eyeshadow formula to perform poorly without a primer or white base underneath it for the more vibrant shades and anything that isn’t a metallic or frost finish. The more shimmery shades have better adhesion to bare skin, and they tend to be less powdery, so they don’t sheer away to nothingness when applied. Some of the shimmery shades can be soft enough that they get crumbly and appear almost dry or apply unevenly without a primer. I always want to like Anastasia’s palettes, but I’m often let down, and unfortunately, that was the case here. Without primer, it’s a lot like throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping something sticks… evenly.

Update: It looks like it is removed at the moment from Sephora’s website as of 3PM PST (it seemed to have disappeared an hour or two before). If you go to Anastasia’s brand page and sort by new, the palette still showed up, but you couldn’t access the detailed page for it. If it is in your “loves,” it shows up as “out of stock.” I don’t have information regarding whether it will be back in stock.
