As soon as I saw images of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario I knew that the palette was a must have for my collection. The last makeup product that I need is another eyeshadow palette, I have one too many already – but the colours looked stunning and I already know that I love the formula of the ABH eyeshadows. I was trying to have a no makeup buying month in October but I just couldn’t resist this palette.
The palette looks just as beautiful in person as it does in any image online. Everything just meshes really well with the palette and all the colours seem to flow together perfectly.
I’ve worn the palette quite a few times already and I think these are some great colours. You can do a lot of different eye looks just with this one palette. This is a great all-in-one palette because you can use it to create an everyday eye look as well as something smoky and intense for a night out. The only colour I wish they would have included was a lighter matte nude or white shade. I think that would have went well with the rest of the palette and would have been nice to help blend out all the shades.
The top row has a really great mix of neutral colours with a slight pop of colour mixed in there. The first shade Hollywood has been great as an inner corner highlight for me. I love using NYC to deepen up a smokey look, this has more of a satin finish to it and I don’t find it to have too much glitter in it. Kim is a great orange, rust shade that works really well with Isabel in the palette. I’ve enjoyed using Muse and Kim together on my eye lately, Muse really helps to deepen up the look without having too intense of a smokey eye. Marina is a great all over lid shade or inner corner highlight if you are looking for something a bit more metallic. Claudia is one of the only shades I haven’t used in the palette just yet. I’m not the biggest fan of navy blue shades but I think I might try to give this one a shot when I’m looking for something a little more intense.
The three matte shades are perfect colours to blend into the crease. Lula has quickly become my go to crease shade for every look that I’ve created with this palette so far. Isabel is perfect for warming up the crease and helping to blend out majority of the warm shades that are in the palette. Violeta is a great shade to help deepen up a smokey eye and intensify any look you create with this palette.
The last three shades in the palette are satin/metallic. 5th Ave is another intense cream colour but this one has a bit more of a yellow tone compared to Marina. I haven’t used Bronx yet but I was completely shocked by the swatch I had of it. In the pan it looks like an olive green colour but when it swatches it’s more of a brown with gold glitter. I’m not sure if I’ll use this shade very much but I do want to find out if I can make it pull more green. The last shade, Paris, pulls more of a grey brown shade. I’ve used it once so far and I really enjoy it as an all over lid shade.
