Today I’ve got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy palette to show you. This palette was created with the beautiful makeup artist Amra Olevi. You can follow her on Instagram at @amrezy. This is an eyeshadow palette made up of warm colors that are mostly neutrals. It has two pops of color in the form of Iridescent Purple and Emerald Green. This palette is an Ulta exclusive, meaning you can only buy it at Anastasia Beverly Hills or at Ulta. It won’t be at Sephora.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette Review
One thing to note about this palette is that Ulta and Anastasia Beverly Hills states that all shades contain carmine. I find that weird because I think you have to go out of your way to add carmine to about half the shades in this palette! I normally only see carmine in reds or pinks. I generally avoid carmine, but I still have a few things in my makeup collection that contain it as an ingredient. I was really surprised to see it listed in this palette. Anyway, I just wanted to warn you of that because i know many of you eschew carmine.
$29 NET WT: 0.72 g / 0.025 Oz. EACH
All eyeshadows swatched on Wet n’ Wild Fergie Eyeshadow Primer.
Legend – pale yellow gold metallic
Glisten – rose gold metallic
Topaz – golden brown metallic
Iridescent Purple – this one is less pigmented than the first 3, but it can be built up. It’s definitely a gorgeous purple with blue tones
Emerald – love this green. it almost has a smoky quality to it
Vanilla – pale creamy vanilla with a hint of sparkle, really blends into my skintone, this is on the sheer side, so good to highlight or to use to blend out.
Caramel – warm orange-toned brown matte
Morocco – deeper terracotta brown matte
Deep Plum – deep chocolate brown matte (I see no plum)
LBD – soft black with black sparkles
I like this palette much better than the Lavish set, except for Antique. Antique was gorgeous. I’m not sure if I like it better than the Catwalk yet, because the Catwalk palette was exceptionally lovely to me. (Strut, RTW, Scout and Pose were great).
To me this palette leans warm, but the shades are pretty wearable.
I’m very happy that the color names for each shade are printed inside the palette. The brush that comes with it seems to be of a much higher-quality than the last few included brushes with the ABH palettes. I like the mirror. The palette itself is lightweight but feels sturdy enough to toss inside a makeup bag for daily use or travel.
I love that this is a mix of mattes and shimmer. You know I love shimmer on my lid and mattes in my crease because of my eye shape.
I love Legend and Glisten as they’re both pretty metallics. Topaze is never a shade I like on me though it’s pigmented and flattering for many people. I like Iridescent purple a lot but I wish it was more pigmented. Emerald is stunning.
Vanilla is the perfect sort of inner corner highlight; it’s great for opening or brightening the eyes.
Caramel would work as a nice crease or contour shade for a lot of people. I’m not sure why you would want Morocco in the palette with Caramel, since it seems like Morocco is just a deeper and more red-toned version of Caramel. I would think that a deep grey brown taupe might be more functional than Morocco.
Deep Plum looks more like deep chocolate brown to me. I don’t see any plum / purple tones to it.
LBD is a very pretty soft black that is versatile. You can use it as liner, smudge with it, contour / deepen any shade, darken the lash line, set a gel liner, etc.
Overall, I feel like this is a solid palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. If you like these colors, you’ll love the formula and adaptability of the shades.
