Vermeer

Anastasia Vermeer Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a smooth, frosted sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very smooth, finely-milled consistency that applied beautifully to the lid as it adhered evenly. This eyeshadow appears in the Modern Renaissance palette and is quite similar, but the single had a better texture–less powdery–and wasn’t messy to use. On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The new single eyeshadows will be available at online retailers on June 13th and in stores on June 23rd but are available through Anastasia now.

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.

Love Letter

Anastasia Love Letter Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation–mostly opaque but buildable to full coverage, if desired–that applied evenly to bare skin and was fairly blendable. The consistency was drier and not as finely-milled compared to most of the brand’s matte eyeshadows, but I have personally experienced a lot of red-hued eyeshadows that all suffer from a grittier or rougher texture. Luckily, in practice, I did not notice the texture’s shortcomings when applying the eyeshadow to my lid with a brush. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours. This shade appears in the Modern Renaissance palette and was consistent in quality/color compared to the one I have in the palette.

Realgar

Anastasia Realgar Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a matte finish. It was very comparable to the version in my Modern Renaissance palette, both in terms of color as well as quality. The eyeshadow had great color payoff paired with a silky, smooth, and blendable texture that was easy to work with. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Brick

Anastasia Brick Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had intense pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The eyeshadow felt smooth, silky, and finely-milled and blended out with little effort on the lid. The color stayed true for about eight hours before I noticed slight fading and wear.

Ballet

Anastasia Ballet Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It seemed slightly sparkly, too, and the texture reflected that–looser, chunkier, and drier to the touch–and was not one of the brand’s best. Even over primer, it had a tendency to sheer out and had some fallout, but it was more workable applied damp or over an adhesive base. The eyeshadow had semi-sheer to medium coverage, which was only buildable with a dampened brush. It wore well for seven hours before fading noticeably on me.

Gemstone

Anastasia Gemstone Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium, pinky plum with warmer undertones and a frosted finish. The pigmentation was opaque, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable. It had a looser press than some of the other shimmery eyeshadows from the summer collection, though (did not have the heavier, more silicone-like feel of other shades). It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Quick follow up. My next 4 just arrived. My Love Letter is much weaker than yours and more burgundy than red. I think it will be ok over primer but it was definitely not nearly as good as the others!

I’m really bummed out about Ballet since that was on my must have list. Oh well, there are plenty of other fun colors to choose from. I’m loving Gemstone.

The eyeshadows are lovely BUT THAT BLUSH COMBO is killing it! I just incorporated the names of those blushes into one of my work passwords so I wouldn’t forget to buy them next month!

Oh yikes, bummer about Ballet, but the rest are gorgeous!! Glad they finally released Love Letter as single, for those who didn’t want to buy the entire MR palette

Well pooh on them for messing up with Ballet! Wanted it because I used to do modern jazz ballet, although one would never know it looking at me today, LoL.
I do like the looks of Gemstone a lot! Even having MAC Selena, this one may be just different enough possibly. Happy to see that the 3 MR replacement shades turned out nicely for when I hit pan on Vermeer and Love Letter! Would LOVE it if ABH made a permanent pan of Red Ochre, too!

I’m going to get the single of love letter, because I love it in the crease and lids. and as a blush!! So iv already hit pan!

I need Realgar, Love Letter, and Gemstone! They’re very pretty!
I’ll have to check out City Color Gypsy too since it is a dupe for Gemstone.

Gemstone looks really good. It’s on my wish list now. What a pity about Ballet, it looks so pretty. I’ll have a look at Sephora Desert Rose.
