About the Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette
As an artist, Anastasia was drawn to developing a palette that spoke to summertime’s bright colors. This palette features ultra-pigmented eye shadows that impart true-color and the season’s bright, eye-popping hues.
$30 for 12 eyeshadows at .025 oz each
I swatched these on bare skin with bdellium 777 brushes. I ran the brush across the eyeshadow and then brushed them on my skin. They look much better when worn over primer.

So first let me say I’m thrilled to see Anastasia saying she’s made a palette filled with summer brights. I love the bright colors and I love the concept. In practice, I think some of the shades left me wanting more pigmentation, especially Phresh, Unicorn and Blue Velvet.
I love the packaging! It’s really fun and artsy with splashes of color. The names are printed under each eyeshadow, which I really appreciate. There’s a mirror. The included double ended brush is ok, better quality than some of the previous brushes.
Compared to her eyeshadow singles, these aren’t as pigmented or buttery smooth to work with. They just don’t feel as nice when applied and they don’t wear as well. If you use primer, it’ll be much better. With Phresh, Unicorn and Blue Velvet, you’re going to want a colored base underneath it, so you’ll need to apply eyeshadow primer -> colored base -> eyeshadow.
Overall, with 3 of the 12 shades being less than stellar, this is just an ok palette, not a great one. I’d skip it unless you’re ok with putting the extra effort in with some of those shades.
