Anastasia Amber EyeshadowAnastasia Amber Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light-medium, bronzy gold with warm, browner tones and a frosted, lightly metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a dense, thicker texture that adhered really well to bare skin and blended out well, but it could “thicken” and look almost clumpy as a little went a long way. I think when it works, it’s amazing, but it can be easy to over-apply and harder to smooth out if over-applied! It wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly.

Anastasia Day Rate EyeshadowAnastasia Day Rate Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light pink-beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish.

Anastasia Red Earth EyeshadowAnastasia Red Earth Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy brown with warm, reddish undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, finely-milled texture that was fairly blendable and applied well to bare skin. The color wore well for eight hours before fading slightly on me.

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 plastic palette for $40 ($10 per eyeshadow), or purchase eight and get an 8-well cardboard palette for $70 ($8.75 per eyeshadow) (the 8-pan is only available directly from the brand). 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 find the more recently released shades to be better-performing compared to Anastasia eyeshadows I tried two or three years ago. The wear varies between six and eight hours with decent to good application over bare skin (no primer).

Red Earth is interesting. I have many shadows in the same ballpark as this, but most are either cooler and as such redder or more warm and terra cotta like..This one has a nice very subtle muted quality and pink red.

It does! I really liked the color of it, and though not the best, does seem to work just right on the lid – not under-pigmented enough for me to really notice it when building a crease color or blending out a transition shade.

Amber is such a pretty colour, but is an absolute dupe for Half Baked – which I love in my Naked palettes. The other two are not as good in comparison.

Red Earth looks like a great shade! It’s the only one here that I don’t believe I have a dupr for…unless it’s really close MAC Haux?

Red Earth definitely looks like my kinda crease shade! Surprisingly, I don’t think I have anything like it in my stash so I just may need to add it to my collection
