Anastasia Caramel Eyeshadow
Anastasia Caramel Eyeshadow

Anastasia Custard Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a meduim, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It is pretty aptly named, actually. The texture was lightly dusty, though blendable, with semi-opaque color payoff. This one faded more quickly than some of the recent shades–after six and a half hours–so I would recommend a primer as a must-have with this shade.

Anastasia Copper Shimmer Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark orange-copper with warm undertones and a pearly finish. It had great pigmentation, but the texture was drier, which led to some issues when blending out as it would appear a little more uneven and some of the shimmer would result in fall out. The color lasted for eight hours after applied without any more fall out. Too Faced Peanut Brittle (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Anastasia Rich Brown Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent to good pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that could have blended more easily (particularly for such a dark shade). I had better luck building it up slowly and blending it out in steps rather than applying with more product and then drying to diffuse. It lasted for eight hours before fading. bareMinerals Boardroom (LE, )(100% similar). LORAC Espresso (Mega Pro) (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).

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).
