Anastasia Artist PaletteAnastasia Artist Palette ($30.00 for 0.30 oz.) is described as a set of "12 highly-pigmented eyeshadows" in "summertime's bright colors." There are two really disappointing shades in this--the navy blue and cobalt blue--that look like an absolute disaster on the skin without a white base underneath. In general, I have found Anastasia's eyeshadow formula to perform poorly without a primer or white base underneath it for the more vibrant shades and anything that isn't a metallic or frost finish. The more shimmery shades have better adhesion to bare skin, and they tend to be less powdery, so they don't sheer away to nothingness when applied. Some of the shimmery shades can be soft enough that they get crumbly and appear almost dry or apply unevenly without a primer. I always want to like Anastasia's palettes, but I'm often let down, and unfortunately, that was the case here. Without primer, it's a lot like throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping something sticks... evenly.
