Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Shadow

Anastasia Eyeshadow

Life with a toddler has definitely kept me busy. Despite my new permanent state of exhaustion, I’m still clinging to my love of makeup. I find myself doing easy neutral looks more these days because it’s all my foggy brain can handle at the moment. The creativity/brainpower to come up with an eye look using… idk…a bright yellow eyeshadow does not exist now. If you’re a lover of great neutral shades, give Anastasia a peek.

I use and love Anastasia’s brow products, but I’m just now trying out their eyeshadows. I can only speak to the shimmer/metallic shades, but they are richly pigmented with great texture and blendability. The line isn’t 100% neutral. There are splashes of color, but they are somewhat muted. Despite leaning neutral, the majority of the line has a metallic finish, so these definitely aren’t boring. I don’t experience any fading or creasing; however, I always use a primer. What is also nice is the shadows come in pan form for $12 (0.06oz). You get Urban Decay/Makeup Forever quality for a cheaper price.
