Anastasia Amrezy Eyeshadow Palette Review, Photos, Swatches

Anastasia Amrezy Eyeshadow Palette
Anastasia Amrezy Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Amrezy Eyeshadow Palette ($29.00 for 0.25 oz.) contains ten shades ranging from shimmery gold to medium matte black. Each eyeshadow is 0.025 oz. It’s a so-so palette with a few nice shades, some less impressive ones. There are no total misses, but the two brighter shades didn’t translate as richly as they looked in the pan/swatch applied–I couldn’t get that green to pop no matter how many times I patted it on! The wear was good, though, across the board, and most of the eyeshadows wore well for eight to nine hours before fading.

Legend is a brightened, light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth texture that was just a smidgen powdery (it seemed to have a whiter base). It lasted for nine hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Glisten is a medium-dark copper orange with a sparkly, metallic finish. It had good pigmentation, though the consistency was a little dry. It wore well for eight hours before fading, and there was a little bit of fall out over time. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Topaz is a golden, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nice pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly. This shade didn’t show fading until after nine hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Iridescent Purple is a cool-toned, medium-dark purple with a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff that had a slightly drier consistency. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Emerald is a medium-dark, warm-toned green with a golde, frosted finish. It seemed promising when swatched, as it had decent pigmentation, but it seemed to fade almost instantly on the eye–I would pat it on, blend, and poof! looked more like a khaki brown. That khaki brown color stayed like that for the next eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Vanilla is a light beige with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was somewhat powdery but had decent to good color payoff. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Caramel is a medium-dark, copper-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, and the texture was soft and blendable, though a bit powdery. It lasted for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Morocco is a muted, reddish-copper brown with a matte finish. it had decent color payoff, but it was also on the powdery side. It didn’t show signs of fading for eight hours. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Deep Plum is a deep, burgundy brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft, blendable, though a bit powdery. It wore well for eight hours before fading slightly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

LBD is a medium black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had a drier, slightly powdery, consistency, which resulted in semi-sheer color payoff. This shade showed some fading after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Aw just a B! Interesting, seems like people REALLY REALLY REALLY love it, so I expected a higher score based off that! This girl was telling me it was on par with her Lorac palettes.

It seems like a nice mix of colours. The hype around this is unbelievable, and I mostly don’t trust products that have been hyped up like that. The pigmentation is just okay, but the colours are nice.

I do not need to own every plum eyeshadow on the planet, or do I? Anyhow, that would be my sole motivation for this palette. I have an entire MAC custom palette filled with red,purple, and brownish plums and was shocked to see how similar some are when I depotted. Still, a smidgen is a smidgen right and those subtle differences can really make a difference on how they play against your skin…which is why this fascination (surely, obsession) of mine continues.

There has been SO much hype about this palette on Instagram. I thought it would get a higher grade than ‘B’ considering how many people are raving about it! Very interesting to see your honest opinion. I ordered my Amrezy palette a few days ago because I gave in to the hype! Do you think it’s worth the attention it’s been getting? 🙂

I honestly feel like I’ve missed most of the attention it’s been getting – I didn’t realize it was so popular!

I really appreciate this review. I’ve seen so many mini tutorials on instagram where everyone loves it. I know that I can depend on your reviews, I love how you don’t just post you don’t like something, but provide a detailed review. I think I will pass, there are too many similar palettes.

tbh I was really excited for this one. The shades looks all pretty but I was quite turned off by the packaging. The cardboard packaging was quite flimsy and the shades looked just so so in person! 🙁 Well but for the price point I guess it is fine!

I liked all the colours in this palette, especially to look you made with it, but I don’t care for the quality.. Also it isn’t available on Sephora’s website. I will be able to recreate the look you created with this palette with your great dupe list!! So I think I’m covered. Thank you for the review!

What brush do you use to pack on the shadows on your lid? I ask because seeing Instagram pictures make me wonder how much they actually pack on.

Hi Jennifer,

I use MAC’s 239 most of the time, but I alternate with Hakuhodo’s J004G or J242G or Chikuhodo’s GSN-09. I think a lot of people use eyeshadow bases/primers when they create looks – since I’m review-based, I very rarely use primer since I need to see how long it wears (or doesn’t wear).

Some nice shades, particularly the plum, yellow, and green. There’s something about anastasia palettes that makes me ignore the cardboard packaging and appreciate the product.

I don’t really care for the packaging but I love the color scheme! These are colors that I use all the time and the quality seems to be pretty good too. This may be my first ABH eyeshadow palette!

Great review as always Christine!
Got this after all the hype on Instagram and I just can’t get the purple & green to ‘pop’ on my super fair skin. Thought it was something I was doing wrong! I think I’m too used to Urban Decay’s pigmentation . Love the warm matte browns tho, I use them in conjunction with the Naked palettes.

They were odd to work with, because they swatched okay, you know? But in practice, they didn’t look anything like the swatches. If you have a white eyeshadow base, you might be able to get more color out of ’em.

It swatches so well! All the YouTube raves about this palette have turned me off for some reason. Everyone says it’s amazing but no one makes a complete look out of it. They always need to incorporate other shadows. Now I know why! Thanks for the review!

It might be that the two pops of color are a lot less warm-toned, so maybe it’s not the most straight-forward color combination? The neutrals all work together easily, though.

I bought this palette a month or so ago on impulse because the pop colors looked so good in the pan, and wish I would have waited for more feedback before doing so. The only way I could get Emerald to pop/last was to pat it on over a base of NYX jumbo pencil in Black Bean. Like wise, Iridescent Purple looked better over a base of Milk or Black Bean. I also had success getting a bright color similar to pan setting a aubergine liner with the purple shadow. Morocco and Glisten are probably my favorite colors out of the whole palette but over all it is a solid “Meh” for me.

The neutrals were better than the color ones for sure! At least you have Milk, because that’s what I’d suggest for helping Emerald/Iridescent Purple pop.

Just not feeling this palette…. It will be interesting to see how the Maya Mia one rates. Maya’s look a lil better and I happen to like her and her videos. We’ll see…but I think they may be dupable colors, also. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve been wow’d by any Anastasia products, not even the brow gels, etc. I’ll stick with my Mac Brun eyeshadow for brows for now.

There are some overlap, I think, in the palettes (as in same shades). I bought it today from Sephora (online, so it’s not here yet), so we’ll see. I’d like to be impressed by an aqua eyeshadow, but I’m hesitant!

This is a beautiful palette and so are some of her other ones but I can’t explain why I’m not drawn to them? It’s so strange.

I think that has to be it! It’s so funny you said that. Yesterday I saw Phyrra feature the other new one, Maya Mia and the packaging is beautiful and it’s the only one I was like..hmmm, maybe I’ll pick it up. 🙂

Agreed. It’s fine. I stumbled on an Ulta yesterday…my first ever…out of my normal driving area…and checked this out. It was sold out and I guess sells out as soon as it gets in stock. I was underwhelmed swatching it. I think you’re right…it’s fine. But with so many better options…not a must have (now I’ll run and hide because I know some people must disagree as it keeps selling out).

I think with this type of color scheme, the brand has to nail it – e.g. Tarte with their neutral-heavy palette, because if they don’t, there are too many better options to consider.

There’s just something about this palette that lacks cohesiveness. While all the shades are very pretty, Iprefer a palette that allows me to use any 2-3 shades together, and while there are some nice combos, there are also some that wwouldn’t really work.

I, too, have heard/read raves about this palette, but every one of them used a primer, which is just how they choose to review products. However, besides the color selection (I will overlook a lack of cohesion if the colors “wow” me), I’m apprehensive about Anastasia shadows; I picked up a few quints a whle back, but returned them all, due to a bad reaction…

Some of the colors are a little too close–like it’s light copper and medium copper–and the two pops of color are almost cool-toned in comparison, so it may seem off because of those things.

It’s a very pretty palette, but I have so many palettes at this point (and SO many colors like these) they really have to blow my socks off for me to shell out for them. Waiting for the holiday craziness 😀

I don’t follow her so I didn’t buy it (although like others, couldn’t stop hearing about it!). It’s a real peeve of mine for a black eyeshadow to be grey… Not impressed with this one either.

I must have disappeared into a black hole, because I didn’t really hear about this at all, lol! It was a lot lower on my palette priority list.

I can’t even make out the emerald shade on your outer lid! Thats kind of a big red flag :/ Hopefully the Maya palette will be better.

Some of the colours are really pretty. I love the green one, and the swatch is just amazing, But such an odd one, changing when used on the eye.
I’ve never bougth an ABH eyeshadow palette, and I will not start with this one.

It’s a shame the green can’t be built up more. The iridescent purple is actually really pretty in an ethereal way, but of course I’m still hung up on that Ardency Inn Royal/Orchid combo… 😛

I was actually considering this just this morning because of all the hype I’ve seen on IG and Makeupsocial… glad I checked out your site (I do everyday) and didn’t even notice that you reviewed this yesterday! 😀

After all the hype surrounding this product, I gave in and ran to Ulta the day it launched. I tried it out at home and yes, it was good, but the shades are pretty dupe-able. Not to mention, the shades that caught my eye the most like Emerald, Iridescent Purple, and LBD didn’t live up to my expectations. I was disappointed, I’ll admit. I love Amrezy and this palette is so “her”, but I own shades similar. I returned it and ordered the Maya Mia palette instead.

I absolutely LOVE this palette. The thing that draws me in is that it includes warm transition colors that are not shimmery which are perfect for women of color. I’m not into using cool tones or taupes in my crease. As a palette collector, I have a lot of different palettes, but 75% of them don’t have a warm (non-shimmery) transition color like this one. I could travel with this palette and easily take my look from daytime to night time without having to use any other eye shadows outside of this palette. Are these colors dupeable, of course! But the magic word here is…convenience!

I think I’ll pass on this. It’s pretty, but the colors aren’t anything terribly new or extraordinary. I’ve got dupes for most, if not all, of these. I love the packaging, though.

I actually just went to get it yesterday and the new shipment was sold out within 2 days.. So I got the naked basics instead. Well sucks to see you don’t care for it, I personally played with it and I absolutely love the colors! Amrezy may be one of my favorite IG muas but I love all the warm tones in it, I have a lot of darkness around my eyes and I love these warm orange tone shades to really brighten around my eyes. Caramel and Morocco would make amazing transition shades, and I’m in LOVE with glisten

Which one do u think is better based on pigmentation and variety, this Amrezy palette or Too Faced Choco Bar Palette? I just cant decide which one to pick because they’re both soo beautiful
