Anastasia x Norvina Eyeshadow Palette for July 2018 + Inspiration + Official Swatches

Anastasia x Norvina Eyeshadow Palette
Anastasia x Norvina Eyeshadow Palette

Release Date + Details

From @norvina on the inspiration behind the palette…  “The key to this palette is the shimmers and accompanying mattes,” which pairs the “cool tone” shades Norvina loves with a “deep blue-tone[d] berry” with the “dark squash” color of “a shade like Eccentric.”  (Eccentric is the shade she has hit pan on the most!)  She finds that it helps “to create so much dimension & contrast[,] which gives [her] eyes the intensity [she] likes” so that she achieve a balance between intensity and whimsy, as she “love[s] the fantasy of color that allows [her] to look like [she’s] walking in a Disney parade.”  Norvina wanted to ensure that the palette was wearable by many, which considered “truly important.”

The Norvina palette includes three purples–Soul, “a matte deep periwinkle;” Celestial, “combination of pearls [for] cool-tone[d] violet;” and Drama, “a deep aubergine or deep violet shimmer” that she says will “pick up warmth or coolness depending on skin tone” as it has a black base.

On her purple-hued inclusions, she says, “Purple is my absolute favorite color, but I love purple shadow to a limit personally,” and so she needed a “variety” in shades to complement the purple shades, like Love, described as a “matte, cool-tone[d] pink” and Wild Child, another “duo-chrome, cool-tone[d] pink.”  She continues to explain that “Harmony and balance is important when considering [her] features, skin tone, hair color and the makeup [she wears], [as it’s] a way to elevate [her] look and not overwhelm people by wearing too many colors.”

Norvina loves colors like bronzes and golds but has had “trouble” with the two hues being “too yellow or [too] copper” for her skin tone, and she finds that Summer, a “cool-tone[d] bronze” along with Glistening, a “cool-tone[d] gold” lean cooler, and these two metallic hues will work across all skin tones, not just fair and lighter ones.  Rose Gold is supposed to be a cool-toned iteration of a common shade, as she finds most are “too red” for her skin tone.  She created Base, a “neutral eggshell” as a brow bone shade and Incense, described as an “ideal balance between a warm and cool transition” that its a “mid-tone taupe.”

She enthusiastically states how Volatile, a “violet gray,” was an absolute “MUST!” inclusion in the palette as it’s not a shade she’s seen often in the past.  The last shade in the palette, Passion, she describes as a “deep plum” that is cooler-toned than Mulberry (in Soft Glam) and picks up on the blue undertones in her complexion.

Sedona

Anastasia Sedona Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips and only tugged slightly (which is good for this formula). The lipstick had a velvety texture that was firmer in the tube but felt thinner on the lips. I noticed that it seemed to sink into my deeper lip lines faintly in the close-up photos, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. This sahde wore nicely for five hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.12 oz. - $150.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “full-pigment” with a “smooth, ultra-matte finish.” Since the description was a little light, I also watched the brand’s video, where the formula is also supposed to be comfortable to apply and not settle in lip lines. The best aspects of the formula are how lightweight it felt on–almost like nothing on, so despite being more matte and denser, not heavy or clingy–and that most shades have been non-drying (so far).

There has been some transfer, and the finish is mostly matte but not “ultra-matte” (certainly not as flat or matte as their liquid lipsticks, as an example). Some shades have emphasized my lip lines from a texture standpoint or due to color settling into them, but it depended on the shade. The wear has ranged from four and a half hours to eight hours, and some of the richer shades can survive a moderate meal and definitely drinking coffee. I found the texture to be the drawback; the lipstick is incredibly firm and dense with little to creaminess, which resulted in an application that tugged and pulled on the lips. It was also the type of texture that caught on flakes, so regular exfoliation is key. There were a few shades that were creamier and thicker on the lips, which were more comfortable to apply, but the majority were quite firm. (They also did not get softer with use.)

Hollywood

Anastasia Hollywood Matte Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium coral with warm undertones and a matte finish; it was quite well-balanced between pink and orange. The texture was firmer in the tube, a little stiff initially, but it was smooth enough not to appear ragged when applied, even if there was slight tugging. It had good pigmentation that lasted for four and a half hours on me before it had started to fade unevenly and gathered noticeably in my lip lines. The formula was non-drying.

Dream

Anastasia Dream Glow Kit ($40.00 for 0.96 oz.) includes six, sparkling highlighters, which were described as a “buildable, metallic-lustre formula” that has “multi-dimensional sparkle.” If you do not like glitter or sparkle, this will not be the palette for you as all six shades are chocked full of it! On the other hand, if you like duochromes and sparkles, then this palette may be right up your alley. They have stronger, more metallic finishes and sparkles and flecks of glitter that are visible on the skin.

It’s a fun set of shades, but I think creating trios or duos of these shades would have been more useful. Most of the shades were semi-opaque or greater in “coverage,” which sometimes came from a mix of base color and sparkle and others were more concentrated in the form of sparkles/sheen. I definitely saw that they did not have any strong white base that some duochrome highlighters have, which the brand worked to minimize in order to make the shades more workable across more skin tones.

The Details

From Norvina, of ABH: “The closest comparison is the Nicole Glow Kit. This kit shares the same configuration as that kit with 6 pans. I worked really hard to suppress the white undertone found in all reflective colorful highlighters in order for this kit to wear beautifully across multiple skin tones. So what does that mean? Well I would never make the statement “This is for everybody” but it’s the broadest assortment of pastel glow that I’ve made in the most wearable formula from fair to deep. I’m proud of it as it’s no small task especially when you want to show pink on a deep skin tone and it looks white. Again this is as broad as I’ve ever gone, oh and this is important the formula is so creamy 😩💜 I want to bathe in it truly.”

Anastasia Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a 14-pan palette in an assortment of warmer neutrals with finishes that ranged from matte to metallic. I created the look ideas around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.
