There are two more spring launches from Anastasia that launched earlier this week on the brand’s website and debuted at retailers today. First, there’s a new palette, Riviera ($45.00) along with three Loose Highlighters ($25.00). FYI, the palette contains three shades (Bahamas, Cannes, and Palm) that are Pressed Pigments, which have the following fine print: “not intended for use around the immediate eye area.”

I seriously did NOT want to love this palette! But I do! Having seen Mel Thompson’s review and your swatches, I fear it’s too late for me to “un-see” the exquisitely rich pigment and beauty of these shades. Sooo…even though I said I’d only allow myself 2-3 e/s palettes this year, I’ve already bought Viseart Coy, ColourPop It’s My Pleasure and Smashbox Get Punked. Therefore, I’ve hit my max. Catch is, never saw CR Safari Raine or ABH Riviera coming at me like a silver bullet!

Nancy, I’m eyeing Viseart Coy or Boheme; they are the epitome of spring-summer imo. Coy is such a gorgeous palette and I love the formula (already have their Neutral Matte and Paris Nude). Tbh, I prefer Viseart Coy or Boheme to ABH Riviera. And the shades in ColourPop It’s My Pleasure are amazing!

Thank you for talking me down off that proverbial “ledge”, Nicole! I truly do not need Riviera at all since I have Coy and so many wonderful bright matte and satin e/s’s already. Lemming successfully silenced! 😊

When I first saw Christine’s post about the launch of ABH Riviera, I was 99% sure that I was getting it. Then I was leaning towards Viseart Soleil. But when I saw Coy, there was not an ounce of hesitation. That was a clear sign for me. 🙂

I wouldn’t wear this much on a daily basis, but man this is stunning! Cannes is out if this world! I’ll just stare at these gorgeous swatches :).

I’m in love w everything single, last bit of this palette, even the unfortunate Cabana–which I highly suspect will make me look jaundiced–and I’m not even mad. <3

I’m still puzzled by the fine print re the three pigments (Bahamas, Cannes and Palm): “not intended for use around the immediate eye area”. They might refer to their use on/next to the waterline but it is a bit worrisome for me. One might use these three in the outer corner or as en eyeliner and that’s definitely “around the immediate eye area”.

My understanding is that it’s a specifically American warning. I’m not sure which pigments are the issue, but I gather other countries in general don’t require the warning. But otherwise, yes, it would be odd to include products in an eye palette that aren’t meant to be used near the eyes!

Thank you PollyQ! I’ve just had a look at the ingredient list on the Sephora Canada and I think that the problematic pigments must the three reds listed under Bahamas, Cannes and Palm (Red 7 Lake, Red 21 Lake and Red 27 Lake). They are not listed under the other shades. As per your FPLA (I briefly had a look at it): “In the United States, the use of color additives is strictly regulated. A number of color additives approved for cosmetic use in general are not approved for use in the area of the eye”. I can tell you that as Health Canada, in Canada, all imported cosmetics must meet the requirements of the FDA and those of the Cosmetics regulations (CR). Normally the same warning should be on the Canadian labelling as well. Indeed, it’s odd to include a pigment in an eye product that carries a warning not to be used near the eyes.

In the US/ America any product that is considered a ” pressed pigment ” must be labeled with the warning of not for use in the eye area. Beauty guidelines and regulations here. They can be perfectly safe but have to be labeled with warning due to pure pigment staining. Its not regulated this way in the UK or other countries.

Thank you Angela! Indeed, if it’s only the staining issue (and not one linked to a component in the pigment), it’s not bad. We have in Canada a “Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist “updated regularly by Health Canada and currently the only pigments that are a prohibited for use in cosmetics are pigment Orange 5 and its lakes (CI 12075), and Red 23 (CI 15585). Pigment Red 4 is restricted (max 3% concentration).

I’m really bummed about the pressed pigment shades. A lot of people seem to think the warning is just about staining but I actually get a painful allergic reaction that takes weeks to heal. Definitely not safe for my eye area. I’ll continue the quest for pink and purple mattes that are eye safe with help from temptalia’s dupes! As for the palette overall, pass. I’d rather buy viseart coy!

I feel like the packaging doesn’t complement the shadows at all. Whoever said this should have been marketed as carousel themed was right on. That or those airbrushed, tie-dyed t-shirts everyone used to get on spring break in the 90s. Which, I mean, there’s a reason those were popular, but… Riviera?

Oh heck.
I know I would only use six of these, but that’s half the palette, right?
I’ve been quite eager (since I saw Mel Thompson use it) to see snowflake on my cheeks tho.

I bought a top last night before I went to the Sephora Rouge Event, the exact color of Cabana, it is so beautiful, I don’t how I’m going to resist this one, (sigh!)

I had been looking for a loose or pressed highlighter that was white with high shine since August. I settled on an Inglot AMC powder….. I’m wondering how close to Snowflake is compared to that one consider the price is almost identical. lol

Is Anastasia still made in China? I have a hard time paying the cost for their products when they are produced mega cheap on practically slave wages. It’s an ethical issue for me.

I don’t get the name and packaging of the palette. I would called it Caribean and named all the shades of that nice Islands overthere. With the name and packaging I expected more navy, gold, aqua, sands. I think ABH could do a better job with that…but those swatches are great. I don’t have rainbowpalettes and I liked the last palettes ABH released.

I love this palette. It’s stunning! I won’t be getting it because I’m on a low buy and I have dupes for everything, but that doesn’t stop me from making heart eyes at it. I hope this is a sign that we’ll be getting some beautiful colorful palettes over the course of the year.

Is this a limited edition palette? Asking for a friend…
