Anastasia Norvina Vol. 1 Pro Pigment Palette ($60.00 for 1.575 oz.) includes 25 shades dominated by more matte finishes (there are eight shimmers). It’s limited edition and will be available online only. The eyeshadows are larger than typical Anastasia eyeshadows, and the palette itself has a larger footprint–larger than average, too–than past releases from the brand. The brand has decided to go with more standardized naming conventions, but for the purposes of our database, should they release a Vol. 2 in the future, we’ll need a way to discern A1 from Vol. 1 and A1 from Vol. 2, hence every shade name containing the palette name and volume.
The majority shades in the palette are Pressed Pigments, so if you’re someone sensitive to red/pink/purple shades or does not feel comfortable using products that come with a “not intended for use around the immediate eye area” warning, you’ll want to skip the palette.
NOTICE for the following shades: A2, A3, A5, B1, B3, B4, B5, C4, C5, D2, D3, D4, D5, E1, E2, E4, E5. All products categorized under “Pigment” carry a warning in the US that the product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” Brands in the US typically market these products as “Pigments” (instead of “Eyeshadow”), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. Some color additives in “Pigments” have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions: FDA/CosIng.
