Anastasia Master Palette by Mario Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains twelve eyeshadows housed in a fairly slim, cardboard palette with a mirror on the interior of the lid. The formula in the palette seemed softer, more velvety than past iterations I’ve tried from Anastasia (even newer released singles), so the palette has more powder kickup and can be messier if you use rougher or denser brushes with it, but the shades are rather pigmented so you don’t need to use a lot of pressure to get enough product for application either. That softness didn’t result in the eyeshadow sheering out too easily, rather that the eyeshadows blended well together and seamlessly. In some ways, I felt like it could be a little muddied, as some of the tones and depths of shades were nearer to each other, but it will all be in the pairing, I think. The eyeshadows lasted for seven to eight and a half hours on me, which was good wear, and obviously, a primer should help extend wear further.
