Norvina Mini Vol. 2

Anastasia Norvina Mini Vol. 2 Norvina Mini Pro Pigment Palette ($29.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition nine-pan palette that features two shimmer shades and seven matte shades. The mattes were on the drier side with light to moderate powderiness, though most of them were workable but I’d highly recommend pairing with a lightly hydrating/smoothing primer. The shimmers were both drier and under-performing against most shimmer eyeshadows these days (including ones from the brand).

A1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

A1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a bright, light-medium yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable over an eyeshadow primer but not so much on its own. The texture was drier, somewhat powdery, and had light fallout during application but was fairly blendable. It lasted well for seven and a half hours and left a sallow stain behind.

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.

A2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

A2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a light green with subtle,w arm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that did not build up to full coverage without a primer underneath it. The product had a drier, almost chalky texture that emphasized my natural skin texture (almost in the way that heavy frosted lipsticks do on lips) and didn’t blend out as easily as I expected. There was noticeable fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

A3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

A3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a light-medium orange with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was barely-there pearl throughout that seemed to give it a less-than-matte finish when applied and blended out. The texture seemed a bit drier than average for a matte formula, but it wasn’t as dry as other shades and was easier to use overall. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly and stayed on well for seven and a half hours for me.

B1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

B1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a bright, medium-dark orange with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, more substantial texture that was a bit powdery in the pan but didn’t suffer from dryness like other shades in the palette. The product applied evenly and blended out well on my skin. It lasted nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.

B2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

B2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a light gold with warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque coverage at best but was drier and dusty with a lot of excess product that kicked up in the pan. The product was prone to sheering out during application and never looked that shimmery–it was like my lids ate the shimmer/powder (even though I have normal-to-dry lids, definitely not oily!). There was noticeable fading after seven hours of wear.

B3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

B3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a deep teal with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a fairly soft consistency, but it was quite powdery and dry, which made it difficult to apply. The powder emphasized my skin texture, but the real struggle was in how it played with other shades as it tended to lift and create patchiness. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

C1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

C1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a brighter, medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. The product had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly to bare skin but wasn’t the most blendable or kind to lid texture. It had a tendency to showcase fine lines, so it looked darker within those lines. The texture was slightly drier, moderately powdery, but it held its intensity when applied. It stayed on nicely for nine hours and left a stain behind.

C2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2)

C2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a pale chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It was drier, more loosely-pressed into the pan, and had a ton of fallout. It had to be really pressed onto the skin to stay or else it just disappeared, so I would recommend using it with a dampened brush or over a tacky base. Applied dry, but with a fingertip, resulted in more product below my lid than on it. This shade lasted for six and a half hours before fading noticeably.

C3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 2) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque color payoff that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that blended out well along the edges. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but a lot easier to work with than most shades in the palette. It wore well for seven and a half hours before I noticed fading.

I guess the real disappointment here is not the qualtiy of the mattes, which is usually the case, but the quality of the shimmers….
Beautiful eye look Christine.

This may not be a popular comment but to my eye, this just looks really ugly. The only shade I like is the middle one and it didn’t score well at all. I guess I like a palette to be capable of standing alone and for me, this certainly doesn’t.

If I had enough lid space to be able to recreate your beautiful eye look, I would be tempted to get this but since I don’t it will be a pass.

I remember making eye looks with similar color story when I was younger. I love this personally.

And regardless of the score, I think Christy really can sell any eyeshadow palettes even of they underperform. The look you have created is absolutely stunning.

This looks like the southwestern color scheme I chose for my bedroom when I was 7 in the late 80s. Nostalgic, but not something I really want in on my eyeballs

1970’s kitchen decor or the Mexican flag…I haven’t decided yet. I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority here, but I sort of like it. It has a certain Adam Driver thing going on: ugly-hot? It’s a real thing, I kid you not!

I really dig the color combo – I don’t know that I’d have put together all of those shades together myself, and I definitely think that’s what many have looked to brands to do – give us an interesting color story/encourage us to try something a bit different by making that combo easier to see!

As usual, a wonderful multi look, and you always make everything look both easy and good quality, even when they aren’t. Which makes me think of statistics courses. (You are all entitled to a wtf moment.) What I mean is, these Norvinas are valid: they represent the colors that they purport to be. But they are totally unreliable: cannot be repeated accurately over time. A1 in V2 mini is a 90% dupe of A2, in big 2. One is B-, the other is a D-. I might have gotten the palette notation wrong (Whoever thought we’d have to learn THAT language), but my concept is dead on. Even if the quality were there, we still would not trust these Norvinas, because they are not RELIABLE.

I feel like ABH really tried to break my naming system, LOL! 😉 But I was ready when they said Vol. 1, so now every shade name is unnecessarily long and complex… the opposite of what they were aiming to achieve!

I’m definitely in the minority here, but I really dig the tones of these shades. They’re retro, but vibrant. And I’m really considering getting this mini…but I dislike ABH’s formula…but on the other hand I don’t own anything like this in my collection.

Norvina’s gonna get money out of me after all, isn’t she?

I love rainbow looks and as soon as I saw this, I put it in my sephora cart. But when I read up on it, it said 4 of the colors weren’t eye safe, so I immediately took it out. I really wanted it for C2 and that happens to be one of the ones “not recommended for eye area.” I think brands shouldn’t do that. I love your look, and it makes me want it again, but your review makes it easier to pass up. I will try to create similar with the clover palette.
