Anastasia Eyeshadow
Anastasia Eyeshadow

Anastasia Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) just launched at Sephora and Ulta, and you can purchase four for $40, which will get you a refillable 4-pan quad (Sephora’s system will only let you purchase a discounted set of four once per order). I’ve only ordered my eyeshadow singles from Anastasia directly, and I have ordered eight at a time and have received 8-pan cardboard palettes to put them in. However, the quad from Sephora is all plastic with a clear lid–it looks a lot like MAC’s newer quad packaging.

Anastasia Stone Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a light-medium taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had really good pigmentation with a soft, silky, and smooth texture that applied well and blended out with ease. On me, it started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.

Anastasia Blanc Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a pale, white-beige with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightly powdery texture that does tend to fall out when applied, which is less-than-ideal as the lighter color can make everything grayer if it falls on top so definitely tap of excess and press against the skin rather than sweeping. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Too Faced Amour (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek White Lies (DC, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Anastasia Fawn Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark yellowed brown with warm undertones and a matte finish.

Anastasia Smoke Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.59 oz.) is a dark, taupe brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish.

Shades such as these may not produce a chorus of “oohs & ahhhs”, BUT they are an absolute necessity especially for doing a pin-up neutral look eye! Thank you for reviewing these essentials.
