Anastasia Self-Made Eyeshadow Palette
Anastasia Self-Made Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Self-Made Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the holidays that features 14 eyeshadows in various hues. The palette leans more neutral than colorful or bright, but there are a few pops of color (pink, purple, aqua). Probably the biggest surprise here is that there are only two official mattes and then one or two more that are satin-to-matte (like the black eyeshadow is effectively quite matte in practice). This is one of the best Anastasia palettes I’ve tried to-date; it is well-worth the price point, and I think the color selection is at least a little more interesting than most palettes.

Two shades (Pink Champagne and Hot Chocolate) are part of the permanent line and Buttery was released in another palette, and while Blush should be a repeat, the Blush included in this palette is totally different from the Blush I reviewed previously.

Pink Champagne is a rosy, taupe brown with a metallic sheen and copper sparkle. It had good color payoff and adhered well to bare skin with minimal fall out over time. The texture was smooth, dense, and blendable. It lasted for eight hours on me. Hourglass Smoke (P, $29.00) is cooler (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Sand Castle (PiP, ) is lighter (90% similar).

This is the ONE, forget UD Spectrum! I think my already having the MUFE 15 Artist Shadows Palette, the two LE MAC pressed pigments and buying this, will give me all the shadows I will need for the types of looks I have been drooling to try lately! One question, is this already out?

OMG, the colors and swatches in this palette are stunnnning!! For only $35?? I have enough shadows for now, and I have dupes for some of these, but I am sorely tempted…..I’ll have to think about this. And love your glowy eye look!

So I’m sure I need another palette like I need a hole in the head but $35 is a steal. And it seems like this palette is streets ahead of her previous ones in terms of quality. Only wish she included a look book to help with paring colors but I can easily use Pinterest or YT.

Yeah! I ordered this yesterday. I got a great deal using my 20% platinum perk coupon from ulta along with $6 in points. This looks like a workhorse for fall! I wish it was here for Halloween!There could be some gorgeous looks from this. I actually read the review on Deep Purple twice..shocking! A well done purple- its about time.

While I think that the shades swatch nicely, I think the packaging looks so cheap, especially on the inside. 🙁
Does it has a magnetic clasp or how does it stay closed?

Wow, I might just change my mind about not buying this palette cos it was a bit warm for my taste initially! The shades I liked (Blossom, Isla and Deep Purple) all have good marks and the palette only costs £29 here so I might buy it after all!

I avoided Anastasia eye palettes like the plague, but I bought the World Traveler palette during a Nordstrom extra point sale and enjoyed it. I like the colors in this palette too – I think I’ll try it.

Ooh the eye look you did is pretty and so me. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this palette but the swatches makes me want to get my hands on it stat. I love ABH dip brow, brow gel tint and clear and their contour palette.

I haven’t tried an Anastasia palette yet but that purple is tempting me. Doesn’t the new it cosmetics palette have a pale green like this only matte? I know I’ve seen a similar color somewhere. I’m kinda into that shade too surprisingly for me. My Marc Jacobs Free Spirit palette has opened my eyes to a good pale green. I’ve only ever been interested in greens like UD’s Loaded or even Dragon for fun. With so many more holiday releases yet to come I’m torn about this one.

Yes, I thought that pale gold green looked familiar, so I dug thru my stash. If you mix the 2 colors in Tom Ford Raw Jade, you get a similar color, but it’s $60 for the kit. Another dupe is City Color Shimmer Shadow in Hint of Mint for only $7, but don’t let the price fool you, the quality is top notch. The TF is a little greener, the City Color has more of a gold duo chrome green sheen rather than a shimmer, but they are close, definitely in same color family .

This one is gorgeous and that eye look is inspiring Christine!!! I was waiting with bated breath for your review and am so pleased it seems like a worthwhile pick.

It is a lovely set of very useful colours and, generally, it has rated really well. I still think that a few of the colours look too similar to each other, especially once they are on the eye- for example the Pink Champagne and Blossom; Metallic Plum and Witch; Self Made and Hot and Cold. I would have liked a little more contrast between the colours. No blues or greys – which is a shame.

The look you created is gorgeous, what shades did you use? I picked this palette up with my ulta platinum rewards coupon and I can’t wait to play with it!

What a pretty group of colors. Love that it looks both interesting as well as easy to wear. I’ve never tried an Anastasia palette before.

I just picked this up at Ulta today and it was the last one in the store! I’m so happy I got it, because it’s a fantastic palette. The colors are very original, and the quality is great.

I wasn’t 100% sold on this after just picking up the couture palette, but there are some really beautiful shades in here! Great review as always Christine! Thanks!

Oh, YES!! This WILL BE MINE! LOL What a great palette! I love the last one, even with it’s two duds (IMO) so I know I’m going to love this one just as much. Thanks for reviewing this, Christine! And I LOVE the look you did! Warm earth tones always bring such a natural, sultry look to your eyes.

Oh no this is pretty. I think this palette is going to be pretty high up on my holiday wishlist this year, especially with that price!

I feel tempted to get this palette — mainly for the gorgeous purple — but I already have the first two dupes, lol! Thank you for the review, several of the colors look very pretty 🙂

What a nice little palette. I don’t own any of Anastasia’s eyeshadows, so I hadn’t considered getting this, but Deep Purple is calling my name! I just redeemed 1000 Ulta points and used my 20% off coupon on Vice 4, but I kind of wish I’d skipped it and purchased this instead.

Good grief, I think I may have just found the item to get with my 20% off anything at Ulta coupon (along with stocking up on the boring stuff like cotton pads & makeup remover). These swatches and your eye look are gorgeous! Now, call me hallucinogenic, but I see the six left-most shadows as a winter palette, the six right-most as spring, and the six in the center as fall. Whaddya think?

I just purchased this a coupe days ago! I have yet to swatch/use it, but looking at your review, I’m really excited to try it! I had that 20% off coupon from Ulta that’s good on higher end makeup so I used it to buy this palette. Glad I did!

Quite a few shades I like and quite a few I wouldn’t wear! Deep purple is amazing! Blossom, Metallic Plum, and Pink Champagne are also really nice. I’d make a quad out of those if I could!
