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.

  • Buttery, Punch Fuchsia, Orange You Fancy, and Beigely of course i like. It’s funny but I have a MAkeup Geek eyeshadow in Unicorn that is also a blue perwinkle. It’s was DC’d but soo similar in shade to this Unicorn.

  • As one of my favourite colours – the blue is so patchy and the rest are either colours I have or colours I am not fond of, this is a miss for me. I think ABH can do better…..

  • This palette seems so fun, I’d like to have it. Sadly I can’t get it here in Portugal 🙁 so I’m entering your giveaway!

  • I like this palette but wish the colors were more true-to-pan. Would be a good start for someone who wants to “get their feet wet” with brights.

  • The colors look so fun. I’d love to be this daring. Thank you for this rewiew!

  • Amazing pallet I would so love it and create some pretty colorful makeup looks

  • I can’t wait to see what the newest ABH palette is like! IT look sgorgeous and I’m sure I will be getting it! lol!
    Thanks for another great review!
    Xoxo,
    Janna

  • I am so sad that they appear patchy, but man that “anaconda” don’t want none unless you got buns hun!! Just kidding, but that is really a pretty good name for that color, but my fave by far are Phresh and the sheer yellow mixed together, I want yellow everything right now for summer!! LOL

  • The payoff looks disappointing. I’m always surprised by any company that allows a product with poor payoff to be released.

    • I definitely wish it was more pigmented. This is why I say it’s really a skip to buy, but if someone gave you one, it’s fun to play with

  • This is my first ABH palette, though I have a couple of her singles. I like this palette quite a bit, but I agree it needs primer. Blue Velvet was the only shade I found to be underpigmented and patchy. It’s a complete dud, even with primer, IMO. The rest are pretty nice.

    • Yeah it’s a great palette in concept but the pigmentation is not there. It will, of course, look better with primer but I’ve been trying to show colors more accurately by swatching without primer, even though i don’t wear eyeshadow without primer

  • I like this palette and could do a lot of looks with it. I was very surprised the green one was so dark.

    • Her single eyeshadows are great, I’ve been testing them out. Some of her older palettes were really nice too.

      • I sooo wanted to try the Amrezy (?) palette. If they are going to make something LE, they need to make more so I can have one. LOL

  • I like this palette, however I am okay with the duds as I would end up using them to rim my lash line anyways.

  • What I love about this palette is that it has everything you need to create a look. I always look for a good transition color, a nude base, a dark color and a pop of color for fun. I took this on vacation with me and was able to come up with something different every night which really surprised me. I’m enjoying it much more than I thought I would.

  • The pallet is nice just sucks the bright colors are not that great .I love bright eyeshadow

  • I was really hoping the yellow was going to be better but I love dusty rose and punch fuchsia!

  • My eye was drawn to that purple shade first. Out of these I like Punch Fuschia,

    Unicorn, Dusty Rose and Aubergine the best. Swatched on you I like Orange you Fancy best. This is a nice set of shades and I like that some natural shades are included to blend with and use as base..

    • I just wish they were the same quality as the Anastasia eyeshadow singles, which to me, they’re not. Punch Fuchsia is a fun berry shade 🙂
