Anastasia Artist Palette | Review & Swatches

Leave a Comment
Since I seem to be on a roll with trying new things, I am delving into using more colorful eyeshadows. Colorful eyeshadows don't scare me, but I tend to stick to more subtle and subdued colors. The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette had some colors that started getting me interested in wearing more colorful eyeshadow looks again, so the Anastasia Artist Palette became the next palette to review. I've had this palette for a little while and just had no idea what looks to create with it. After some playing around with it, I've come to enjoy colorful eyeshadow looks again.

Like most palettes from Anastasia Beverly Hills, this palette was limited edition and can't be found in stores anymore. There were still some available online recently, but they have since sold out. The only place I can find it available is on Amazon at an inflated price. I think this palette was $35. 

       Dusty Rose, Aubergine, Anaconda, Punch Fuschia, Buttery, Blue Velvet

        Coal, Unicorn, Phresh, Baby I'm a Star, Orange You Fancy, Beigely

The Anastasia Artist Palette contains 12 shades with a mixture of matte, satin, and shimmer shades. Some of these colors are easier to work with than others. While Beigely and Anaconda were easy to blend, I had a lot of trouble blending Baby I'm a Star. Even when it did blend, it turned gray on me. I do like the fact that there are so many bright colors included. I was able to create many different looks using this palette alone, but I really prefer using it with other neutral palettes. Stila's Kitten eyeshadow makes a beautiful eyeshadow look when paired with many of these. Baby I'm a Star blends out a little better when paired with Kitten, and Punch Fuschia and Kitten make a beautiful pink eyeshadow look. Here are some eyeshadow looks I created using this palette.

Beigely - on lid 
Dust Rose - crease
Aubergine - outer corner
Buttery - under brows
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara

Blue Velvet with Beigely layered on top - inner corner
Phresh - inner part of lower lash line
Baby I'm a Star - outer part of lower lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-One Eye Pencil - Zero
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara
Buttery - under brows
Anaconda - lids
Coal - outer corner
Dusty Rose - blending shade in crease
Baby I'm a Star - darker crease color
Phresh - inner corner blended into the lid
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-One Eye Pencil - Zero
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara

I had a lot of fun experimenting with these fun colors. Dusty Rose and Aubergine make a pretty unexpected neutral eye, and I really enjoy wearing Beigely on its own. It's nice to get out of your comfort zone when it comes to makeup and try something new.
