Anastasia Riviera Palette Review & Swatches

Riviera

Anastasia Riviera Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features several pops of colors with warmer-toned neutrals. There are 14 shades, of which six are shimmers, seven are mattes, and one is a satin in finish. The quality of most shades was good: pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing without any being particularly fussy to work with. The richer metallics feel more loosely pressed, so they can be easy to pick up too much product on a dry brush and tend to apply best (with the least fallout and most instant opacity) with a wet brush or fingertip. A few of the mattes were more powdery in their respective pan but applied well with minimal fallout.

Worth noting, three shades are Pressed Pigments are “not intended for use around the immediate eye area,” and they are: Bahamas, Cannes, and Palm (the latter was a surprise, as typically this warning accompanies brighter reds, pinks, and purples… not browns). I didn’t notice any staining with Palm, but both Bahamas and Cannes stained significantly (still visible after my morning cleanse) both applied on bare skin as well as over primer (I tested staining over Smashbox 24HR).

Sails

Sails is a pale white with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a moderately powdery texture, which resulted in some fallout if I wasn’t careful. I preferred to apply this as one of the first shades if using it on my brow bone to avoid it turning other shades ashy. This shade lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before it started to fade.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.06 oz. – $200.00 Per Ounce

Anastasia Eyeshadow is supposed to be a “finely-milled, highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadow. There are several different finishes, and the performance can be better or worse depending on the finish, though it also ranges from shade to shade. On average, the formula is semi-opaque to opaque, lightly dusty to buttery, wears seven to nine hours, and is fairly blendable. The Metallic and Titanium finishes seem to be the best-performing to me, but there are some really standout mattes and shimmers as well. I have not tried the sparkle, satin, or velvet finishes as extensively as the other finishes, personally.

Seychelles

Seychelles is a light-medium, bluish-teal with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which easily built up to full coverage with less than half a layer. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and not too dense, so it was easy to pick up and to apply to my lid. It wore beautifully for eight and a half hours on me before it creased faintly.

Anastasia Palermo Eyeshadow

Anastasia Palermo Eyeshadow

Palermo

Palermo is a bright, medium plum with warm undertones and cooler, violet shimmer and micro-sparkle. It had good color coverage but needed a second layer (or to be applied with a dampened brush) for full opacity. The consistency was drier to the touch and had slight fallout during application, though the edges were blendable and the color went on fairly evenly from the start. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Anastasia Seaside Eyeshadow

Anastasia Seaside Eyeshadow

Seaside

Seaside is a pale, silvery lavender with cool undertones and warmer, golden sparkle and shimmer. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a slightly more loosely-pressed texture, which resulted in some fallout during application if I wasn’t careful to pat and press it into place (or use it with a dampened brush). I felt like this particularly shade seemed to lose some of its metallic finish within a few minutes of applying it, though. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before it started to crease.

Inheritance

Inheritance is a bright, sushine yeyllow gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had a loosely-pressed consistency that felt soft, dense with a bit of slip. It applied best with a patting/pressing motion, and it worked just fine with a dry brush, though a wet brush applied it more smoothly initially and brought out the shine in its finish. It had opaque pigmentation that wore nicely for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.

Anastasia Mediterranean Eyeshadow

Anastasia Mediterranean Eyeshadow

Mediterranean

Mediterranean is a light, faded blue with cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable, though nearly opaque when applied with a dampened brush or a fingertip. The consistency was chunkier but still with noticeable creaminess, which helped the product combine and adhere to my lid. If using a dry brush, I highly recommend using a gentle press and pull motion (hold the brush to the lid, press, and then gently pull/sweep in a fluid motion across the space you want it on) to apply with minimal fallout. It lasted well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Estate is a light-medium peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a satin finish. The ultra-fine shimmer became more noticeably when applied and blended out, as it produced a soft sheen. The texture was lightly powdery in the pan but blended out nicely and held most of its pigmentation when I did so. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Coastline is a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly and blended out easily on my skin. The texture was moderately powdery in the pan, so I had to be sure to tap off excess and avoid very fluffy brushes (or else it kicked up enough powder to get into other pans!).

Bahamas

Bahamas is a bright fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to opaque coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The texture was soft, thin without being too dry or difficult to apply, and lightly powdery in the pan. It blended out nicely and stayed on well for nine hours but did stain heavily and through the next day (I’d have to use concealer or wear full eye makeup to hide it), even when I tried it over primer.

Anastasia Monte Carlo EyeshadowAnastasia Monte Carlo Eyeshadow

Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There were very, very tiny golden shimmers strewn throughout but weren’t noticeable to my eye at all in person, so it looked like a matte finish in practice. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, soft, and blendable texture that was slightly powdery in the pan but not prone to fallout during application. It wore well eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.06 oz. – $200.00 Per Ounce

Anastasia Eyeshadow is supposed to be a “finely-milled, highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadow. There are several different finishes, and the performance can be better or worse depending on the finish, though it also ranges from shade to shade. On average, the formula is semi-opaque to opaque, lightly dusty to buttery, wears seven to nine hours, and is fairly blendable. The Metallic and Titanium finishes seem to be the best-performing to me, but there are some really standout mattes and shimmers as well. I have not tried the sparkle, satin, or velvet finishes as extensively as the other finishes, personally.

Cannes

Cannes is a bright, medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, lightly powdery texture but wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily and kept its richness on my lid, but it was a little thinner and seemed more prone to adhering to certain areas of my skin over others, which made blending more difficult. With enough effort, I was able to diffuse it fairly well, but it was easier to soften the edge with a shade like Bahamas or Monte Carlo on the edge. It lasted well for nine hours but left a faded, almost plum-hued stain on my lid that lingered into the next day (even after cleansing in the morning), even when I used it over primer.

Palm

Palm is a deep, reddish-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too dense nor too loosely pressed in the pan. Though it was listed as a Pressed Pigment, I didn’t experience any staining with this one. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading a bit.
