Anastasia Riviera Eyeshadow PaletteAnastasia Riviera Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features several pops of colors with warmer-toned neutrals. There are 14 shades, of which six are shimmers, seven are mattes, and one is a satin in finish. The quality of most shades was good: pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing without any being particularly fussy to work with. The richer metallics feel more loosely pressed, so they can be easy to pick up too much product on a dry brush and tend to apply best (with the least fallout and most instant opacity) with a wet brush or fingertip. A few of the mattes were more powdery in their respective pan but applied well with minimal fallout.
Worth noting, three shades are Pressed Pigments are "not intended for use around the immediate eye area," and they are: Bahamas, Cannes, and Palm (the latter was a surprise, as typically this warning accompanies brighter reds, pinks, and purples... not browns). I didn't notice any staining with Palm, but both Bahamas and Cannes stained significantly (still visible after my morning cleanse) both applied on bare skin as well as over primer (I tested staining over Smashbox 24HR). The Pressed Pigments "may contain" Red 7 Lake, Red 21 Lake, and Red 27 Lake (not approved for use on the eye area by FDA).
