I wanted to do a duo post for these eyeshadow palettes as they are both by the same brand, and you get to see the shades and swatches together in one post. Years ago, I once got an Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palette, and I can’t remember which one it was, but as soon as I put my brush in one of the pans, there was powder and dust everywhere – I was so unimpressed that I put it to the back of my makeup drawer and never touched it again. However, they have definitely touched up their formula, and I have been revisiting some of their palettes in my collection and loving them, so I decided to order the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Carli Bybel and Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palettes whilst they were on super good deals recently.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Carli Bybel Eyeshadow Palette (£46.00) comes in super pretty light grey, gold and soft pink packaging and it looks like it is adorned with jewels. As with all Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palettes, you receive a mirror on the inside of the lid, a double-ended eyeshadow brush (one that is actually great quality, unlike a lot of brushes you find inside palettes), and then 14 eyeshadows. I find palette to be a great all-rounder – there are mattes, shimmers and metallics, and you get some pretty neutrals, a few bolder shades and some great sparkle!
The shades inside this palette include:
· Boli – Pale pink shimmer
· Bybel – Pink nude matte
· Mandala – Lilac shimmer with colour-shift
· Libra – Taupe shimmer
· Jode – Purple grey shimmer
· OA – Lilac metallic with holographic glitter
· Boie – Matte light to medium brown
· Bear – Cream matte
· Moo – Peach champagne metallic
· Chai – Light nude matte
· Cindy – Peach matte
· Stev – Magenta matte
· Aura – Copper metallic
· My Angels – Warm gold metallic
I find this a very wearable palette, and you could easily travel with this palette and be able to create many different looks. The formula is so much better than when ABH first came out with their eyeshadows, and the mattes are pigmented and blend really easily, and the shimmers and metallics are simply stunning. I am super glad I ordered this palette; it really is very pretty. You can find it online at Anastasia Beverly Hills here.
Moving on to the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette (£46.00), this comes in gorgeous packaging too – I really wish it would show up on camera – but it has a mock reptile-effect cover which glows iridescent when you move it and it is so pretty! As I mentioned before, this too has a mirror, a double-ended brush and 14 eyeshadows. This palette is definitely warmer than the Carli Bybel one, featuring pinks, reds, purples and browns with a mixture of matte, shimmers and metallics.
The shades included in this palette are:
· Soleil – Peach champagne shimmer
· Supreme – Medium pink matte
· Pinker – Light burgundy matte
· Big Wig – Cadbury purple matte
· Dwollahs – Light gold metallic
· Credit – Warm toned brown matte
· Lituation – Light brown metallic
· Zamn – Rose gold metallic
· Wiggalese – Ruby red shimmer
· Shookington – Purple shimmer
· Trust Issues – Cream iridescent metallic
· Edges – Tan matte
· Sponsored – Green purple shade shift metallic
· Ginger – Light tan matte
I find the formula and pigmentation just as good as the Carli Bybel palette, and I had very little fallout, even when swatching them. I think this is a very versatile palette, as you get those warmer tones, but then pops of colour and some amazing metallics and shimmers too and so it is definitely something you can use all year-round. At £46.00, the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes are quite pricey, but if you keep an eye out, a lot of sites such as Feel Unique and Look Fantastic often have deals on. You can find the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette online here.
