Warm Taupe

Anastasia Warm Taupe Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.059 oz.) is a medium taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that appeared slightly lighter swatched than it did in the pan. The consistency was slightly dusty but did not sheer out instantly, so it was workable and would perform best over primer. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.06 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

Anastasia Eyeshadow is supposed to be a “finely-milled, highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadow. There are several different finishes, and the performance can be better or worse depending on the finish, though it also ranges from shade to shade. 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 have not tried the sparkle, satin, or velvet finishes as extensively as the other finishes, personally.

Bengal

Anastasia Bengal Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.059 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. I loved how there was a hint of shimmer strewn through the eyeshadow but it was not overtly shimmery. It had good color payoff, but the dustier consistency made it hard to maintain that level of opacity without a good primer underneath it as the color would sheer out very easily. This shade wore well for seven hours on me before fading.

Morocco

Anastasia Morocco Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.059 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and didn’t sheer out too readily. The consistency was soft, smooth, and not dusty or powdery but was still blendable on the skin. This shade wore nicely for eight hours.

Sienna

Anastasia Sienna Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.059 oz.) is a dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had intense pigmentation that was very true-to-pan. The powder was soft, smooth, and almost cream-like in the pan, as it did not feel dusty or powdery but still blended out with ease. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear.

Hot Chocolate

Anastasia Hot Chocolate Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.059 oz.) is a deep, subtly red-toned brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The eyeshadow wasn’t too soft or too firm in the pan, which gave it a smooth, blendable consistency that worked well for darkening other shades or packing it all-over the lid. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Deep Brown

Anastasia Deep Brown Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.059 oz.) is a blackened brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff that was buildable to opaque coverage (less than two layers). The texture was soft, finely-milled, and just a smidgen dusty in the pan, but luckily, it didn’t appear powdery on the skin and had very little fallout, even if I forgot to tap off the excess product. The color stayed on well for eight hours before fading on me.

ABH has a rich set of warm neutrals for sure — with Sateen, RTW, Fawn and Blazing, and I felt covered (and am especially using Blazing lately), but now I want to check out Sienna and Morocco from this set. I’ve also looked at Caramel but it’s so close to UD Riff I think I’m covered. I appreciate the size of ABH eyeshadow singles — more affordable than MUFE — and also they’re easier to find in-store here than the MUFE range. Ha… at this rate, I’ll basically have the Viseart warm neutral mattes palette completely duped (that’s been on my wish list for awhile)

Several of these have a really nice level of pigmentation that is still blendable and seems easy to work with. On the other hand, presently have dupes or close enough dupes of each one. Plus, I have Warm Taupe and Hot Chocolate in 2 separate ABH palettes. Love both shades!

Not surprised! These are all singles that I picked up (during the Black Friday sale) that I only had reviewed from palettes!

These are really good quality eye shadows, but I wonder about the viability of putting out these shades that are so, so common.
Beautiful eye looks Christine.

I thought I had a lot of browns, but I don’t have any dupes for any of these browns. They are all good looking and all but Deep Brown are now on my wish list.
I think I’ll have to do a lot of swatching of my eyeshadows, grouping them by colour, not by palette. Hmm, seem like a lot of work, but maybe I can find some interesting looks doing it.
