The 25 Best Anastasia Eyeshadows

Anastasia Eyeshadows
Anastasia Eyeshadows

Anastasia Eyeshadows ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is supposed to be a “finely-milled, highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadow. The brand has a large range of individual eyeshadows that are available as pan-only (no compact to hold them); if you purchase four, you’ll get a 4-well plastic palette for $40 ($10 per eyeshadow), or purchase eight and get an 8-well cardboard palette for $70 ($8.75 per eyeshadow) (the 8-pan is only available directly from the brand). 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 find the more recently released shades to be better-performing compared to Anastasia eyeshadows I tried two or three years ago. The wear varies between six and eight hours with decent to good application over bare skin (no primer).

I believe I have reviewed every shade that I have, and I think that’s all of the currently-available shades (hopefully!). Here are the top 25 highest-rated shades that are permanent!

16. Anastasia Midnight

25. Anastasia Mulberry

Mulberry is a deep, reddish plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was velvety and a bit denser but not too firmly pressed in the pan--it reminded me more of the shades in Subculture in feel, but I didn't have any issues working with it on the lid as the color applied evenly and blended out well.
