Anastasia x Alyssa Edwards Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Alyssa Edwards

Anastasia Alyssa Edwards Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.392 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features mostly mattes in a mix of vibrant hues and grounding neutrals. Per the box, the following shades are Pressed Pigments, which is code for “not intended for use around the immediate eye area.” Those shades are: Texas Made, Dream It, BBDC, and Believe. I did get moderate staining with those shades, which lingered beyond my morning cleanse, and I did get staining even when I wore it over an eyeshadow primer, though a more opaque/thicker primer might prevent it. Most shades were pigmented, but they often took more effort to blend, while two of three shimmers were let-downs.

Anastasia Headliner Eyeshadow

Headliner

Headliner is a pale white with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, which adhered well to bare skin with minimal fallout–always a plus when working with such a light shade! The texture was soft, a little powdery in the pan, and blendable on my skin. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed any fading.

Colour Pop No Spots (LE, $4.50) is lighter (95% similar).Kat Von D Skull (LE, ) is more muted (95% similar).Sugarpill Tako (P, $13.00) is lighter (95% similar).Anastasia Sails (LE, $12.00) is darker (95% similar).Too Faced Puppy Eyes (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).MAC Chill (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar).Kat Von D Female Trouble (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar).NARS Pandora I (PiP, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).Urban Decay Bump (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar).MAC Me Me Me (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar).

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.

Inspire is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was soft, lightly creamy, and smooth without being too firmly pressed in the pan–it was the best shimmer in the palette. It had rich color coverage that adhered evenly and wore well for eight hours on me.

Unicorn Tribe

Unicorn Tribe is a slightly muted, medium purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even application that was blendable without sheering out. The eyeshadow had a soft consistency that wasn’t too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan, which made it easy to pick up and apply. It lasted well on my skin for eight and a half hours before fading a bit, and this one didn’t seem to stain my skin.

Brick Road

Brick Road is a bright, medium yellow with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, but it was prone to sheering out on my skin, even when I tried it over eyeshadow primer. The consistency was lightly powdery, and it seemed a little drier (emphasized my skin texture a bit). It blended out without too much effort and stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Anastasia DDG Eyeshadow

Anastasia DDG EyeshadowAnastasia DDG Eyeshadow

DDG

DDG is a medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was drier, denser, and more firmly-pressed, and while it seemed like it had some slip to it, it was thick enough that it was a pain to work with unless using fingertips to apply it. I really had to jab my brush into the surface to dislodge product and get enough to apply to my lid space, and then there was a bit of fallout as a result. The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable, and the color stayed on well for eight hours on me before creasing slightly.

BBDC

BBDC is a medium-dark eggplant purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was slightly drier with moderate powderiness, but I was surprised at how it didn’t have tons of fallout (some but just less than expected! The pigmentation was semi-opaque and buildable, but it was harder to blend out, even over eyeshadow primer (I tried with Smashbox 24HR, which I find reliable). It wore well for eight and a half hours and left a stain behind.

Beyond

Beyond is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with warmer undertones and cooler pink shimmer. It had opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly creamy consistency and a denser, firmer feel in the pan, especially after the first use. I found this shade was hard to apply evenly with a brush, even if I used it wet, and fingertips were really the best way to work with this shade.

Believe

Believe is a bright, medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, powdery consistency and was prone to both fallout and sheering out. I was able to build it up somewhat, and as I built it up, the cooler-toned it looked, though it also darkened considerably. It was hard to get the vibrancy seen in the pan on my skin, even over eyeshadow primer (though not a white-based one). This shade lasted well for nine hours but left a stain behind that lingered beyond my morning cleanse.

Beast

Beast is a deep black with a matte finish and neutral undertones. The consistency was soft, thin without being too thin, and blended out fairly well, though it wasn’t the easiest black eyeshadow to work with that I’ve come across . The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, and it applied evenly to bare skin. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

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.
