Norvina Mini Vol. 1

Anastasia Norvina Mini Vol. 1 Norvina Mini Pro Pigment Palette ($29.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition nine-pan palette that features seven matte shades and two shimmers. It was less of a struggle compared to the larger Norvina volumes, but I still had similar issues with respect to the formula being drier, more powdery, and more likely to sheer out/emphasizing skin texture/have fallout. Both shimmers were horrendous; inexcusably bad from a brand that is pretty famous for eyeshadow.

A1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

A1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a bright, neon coral-orange with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was a smidgen of micro-shimmer throughout, which seemed to translate just barely when blended out–like it wasn’t quite as dry-looking as other mattes in the palette. It had opaque pigmentation with a drier, lightly powdery texture with light fallout during application but blended out without difficulty. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

A2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

A2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a pale gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was incredibly dry and powdery with quite a bit of fallout–so much that there was a healthy amount of fallout–like a downpour of eyeshadow–something I’ve rarely experienced.

It had opaque pigmentation that sheered out too easily, so it had to be applied with a dampened brush to get even adhesion and actual opacity; fingertip application was better than a dry brush but still yielded a lot of fallout (too easy to pick up product). This shade stayed on well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

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.

A3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

A3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a medium-dark, magenta pink with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there shimmer over a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty, drier texture that blended out decently and didn’t seem to suffer much from fallout. The color lasted well for eight hours and left a stain behind.

B1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

B1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a bright, lighter red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There were fine shimmers running through it, and I felt like when I blended it out, I could see a slight sheen to the area, but it would be hard to call it a satin (that’s how low-level the sheen was).

The pigmentation was opaque, while the eyeshadow applied fairly evenly but was better applied to my crease area than my lid as it sank into and emphasized fine lines/lid texture. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading and left a noticeable stain behind.

B2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

B2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) has a warmer, yellower peach base with flecks of copper and pink sparkle. It had a drier, loosely-pressed texture that yielded more fallout than payoff applied to my lid. It was poor over bare skin, over primer, with a dry brush, and with fingertips.

It was manageable with a dampened brush, but it thickened considerably and was difficult to spread and diffuse into the thinner, drier mattes. The eyeshadow stayed on decently for six and a half hours and had more fallout over time.

C1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

C1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a light-medium purple with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented but had a really dry, powdery texture that had tons of fallout, sheered out easily, and darkened randomly on my lid; it was still disappointing to work with (looked great swatched but don’t blend it or try to layer it with other shades) even over primer. The color wore well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably on me.

C2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

C2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a medium, violet purple with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable, and surprisingly, it actually applied evenly and blended out without too much work. The texture was drier, thin, and a little dusty but wasn’t prone to sheering out much and didn’t give me trouble with fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed fading.

C3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1)

C3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a deep, pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a drier texture that was prone to emphasizing my lid/skin texture. The issue I had with this shade was that it erased shades under it, which made it difficult to work with since it created patchiness, did not adhere well, and never appeared true-to-color, even over primer. This shade lasted for eight hours and left a strong stain behind.

Your eye look is lovely! And I saw the Norvina display at Sephora! And the mini palettes. I’m glad I didn’t pick one up. :o) I ended up with the Huda nude one. And it’s very pretty!

Wow… Norvina’s extension line just isn’t anything like its parent brand. Not even this cute little purple mini. I’m really hoping that the green/orange/gold one does much better!

Well, was mildly intrigued by these mini palettes as I thought the color stories were more cohesive and useable than the large ones…but apparently the quality is *definitely* not there, so easy pass!

Quality is pretty comparable with the larger palettes, at least (not a good thing in MY experience, LOL!), and some people seem to really like the larger ones, but I’ll be curious to see more reviews on the minis!

I must not have noticed your reviews for the larger palettes, whoops 😆. Don’t often go for large palettes and there looked to be so many repetitive colors, so wasn’t looking out for the reviews of those! Just generally heard people saying they liked them well enough on Reddit and such (although discussion of the actual palettes has been overshadowed by discussions of the release schedule over there), and the colors in this palette mostly seemed similar to ones that ABH has previously done successfully, so wasn’t expected them to perform *this* poorly haha.

Needless to say, this isn’t good especially when several other brands are doing these 9, mostly monochromatic palettes and doing them so much better. I mean ColourPop and Huda both come to mind and ColourPop is cheaper for better quality. So, another skip for me, although these colours are lovely.

Christine, your look is so pretty and gives me Pat McGrath la vie en rose 6-pan vibes. I wonder if this is a different factory and formula – it takes a lot to mess up so many shadows that are typically not that tough for ABH to formulate. And I’m sure your dog doesn’t want to keep doing your makeup! haha

The formula is different than the ABH formula in general since most of the shades are Pressed Pigments so they are starting off with a bit of a different base to accommodate!

It’s strange that the Norvina formula is so much worse than the main Anastasia formula. Of course, Norvina’s colors are much brighter, but plenty of brands do good brights.

The Norvina sub-brand does not get my vote as a brand extension. The concept is fine, in line with the 180 away from Nudes to bold color. But the execution, the release schedule, the decreased QC (at least Subculture was SUPPOSED to be as delivered or repressed) makes on question the CD/MD in charge. It seems that the random placement in the megas may have been a deflection from the similarity of the shades. Norvina May have a great, creative eye, but until she can produce something that is valued added beyond CP and SG, BIG FAT NO.

Wow an D and an F in an Anastasia palette that scores a C overall?! That is rough, makes for an easy no-buy for me then! Your reviews are so helpful as always!
