Anastasia of Beverly Hills never disappoints in terms of packaging, and this is no exception! A day ago I received this lovely little parcel to do a review on.
The She Wears it Well eyeshadow palette is inspired by the 1930's - an era known for it's classic and feminine makeup looks. The palette has a mirror, a professional dual brush (one of the sides is flat wide brush for blending, the other is more pointed for definition).
I loved the variety of hues available in this palette - Trophy, Glow, Latte, Foxy, Sunset, Frosting, Almond, Onyx and Toffee. It's definitely my style - all neutrals. some have more blushy tones while others are closer to creams/whites. The eye shadow formula has 'Youthful Synergy Complex' which hydrates your skin. All shadows can be worn wet or dry.
Along with my parcel were these cards! Each one features a beautiful vintage fashion illustration on one side, and eyeshadow ideas on the other. I really like all the ideas, but for my review I decided to just wing it and do my usual type of style.
The pigment of the shadows were pretty good, although I think you definitely should use an eyeshadow primer to have the shadows work best. I used Urban Decay's primer potion. I swept "sunset" all over my lid, and then put foxy and a touch of onyx in the corner/crease fo my eye for a slightly vintage and dramatic look - one of my favourites!
Overall I give the eyeshadow palette an A! I know I will be using it until it runs out. The colours are so perfect for day to day looks but also for more dramatic night looks.
I guess that means I "wore it well!" :D Click here for the palette.
