Anastasia x Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

 

Jackie Aina

Anastasia Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.392 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features 14 shades across three Pressed Pigments and 11 eyeshadows in various finishes, from matte to pearl to metallic. Where this palette shines is in its cohesive, yet versatile, color scheme. The left side of the palette has a pink/purple vibe, while the right side is warmer, earthier with taupe and green brown.

There’s a nice mix of depth, undertone, and finish to create many looks. The mattes in the palette are some of the brand’s best; they had some of the soft, lightly powdery nature that most expect from the brand’s formula, but I had hardly any fallout from the mattes and found them to be quite pigmented and blendable overall. A couple of the shimmers seemed a bit too loosely-pressed, but as long as you’re someone who doesn’t mind applying with fingertips or a wet brush (or if you normally use a tacky base), I don’t expect that to be a deal-breaker.

The three Pressed Pigments (Big Wig, Pinker, Supreme) are “not intended for use around the immediate eye area.” The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. Brands in the US typically market these products as “Pigments” (instead of “Eyeshadow”), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or the label as a result. Some color additives in “Pigments” have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the eyes. I recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions: FDA/CosIng.

Anastasia Soleil Eyeshadow

Anastasia Soleil Eyeshadow

Soleil

Soleil is a light, peachy gold with strong,w arm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was denser but not to the point that it became stiff or difficult to pick up (even after a few uses). The eyeshadow lasted well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

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.

Anastasia Supreme Pressed Pigment

Anastasia Supreme Pressed Pigment

Anastasia Supreme Pressed PigmentAnastasia Supreme Pressed Pigment

Supreme

Supreme is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The texture was soft, lightly powdery but didn’t seem prone to fallout during application, and remained blendable on bare skin. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed slight fading, though this didn’t seem to leave much of a stain behind.

Anastasia Pinker Pressed Pigment

Anastasia Pinker Pressed Pigment

Anastasia Pinker Pressed PigmentAnastasia Pinker Pressed Pigment

Pinker

Pinker is a deeper, pink-berry with subtle,c ool undertones and a semi-matte finish. There seemed to be very fine, almost bluish micro-shimmer throughout, though it was primarily matte to the eye once applied. The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, and sometimes these types of shades (especially when marketed as a Pressed Pigment) can be a bit dry, so I was happily surprised that it was so smooth to the touch. The opaque pigmentation wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably, and it did leave a stain behind after removal.

Anastasia Big Wig Pressed Pigment

Anastasia Big Wig Pressed Pigment

Anastasia Big Wig Pressed PigmentAnastasia Big Wig Pressed Pigment

Big Wig

Big Wig is a medium-dark purple with warmer, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a smooth, finely-milled consistency that was a little thinner (but not as powdery as the average Anastasia matte eyeshadow). It applied decently, and it was marginally more blendable over an eyeshadow primer, but it was still a shade that took extra effort and some talent to really diffuse and blend out seamlessly. Pinker actually ends up being a perfect way to fake it, as Big Wig diffuses out to a similar pinker tone, so the two end up meshing seamlessly without having to work so hard at it. On me, Big Wig lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit, but it did leave behind a pinkish stain.

Anastasia Dwollahs Eyeshadow

Anastasia Dwollahs Eyeshadow

Dwollahs

Dwollahs is a light gold with moderate, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling finish; it straddles that undertone where it’s warm enough to be a gold but it’s not a peachy or orange-toned gold and yet it’s also not that green-ish gold either. The texture was smooth, dense without being too thick or heavy in the pan, and it applied well with a dry brush, though fingertips or a wet brush will amplify the shimmer and help it spread out faster. It had rich color coverage that stayed on nicely for eight hours on me. There was a smidgen of fallout during application but none that I could determine during wear.

Credit

Credit is a deep, reddish-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had an incredibly soft, silky texture that was a smidgen powdery in the pan, but I actually found that fallout was next to none when working with it. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, and the color diffused seamlessly along the edges with little effort. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Anastasia Lituation Eyeshadow

Anastasia Lituation EyeshadowAnastasia Lituation Eyeshadow

Lituation

Lituation is a medium taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It seemed to have a slightly cooler overtone and a warmer, brownish base, so it tended to look cooler or warmer based on what else it was paired with. It had an incredibly smooth, almost cream-like, consistency that was easy to apply and “melted” onto my lids. The pigmentation was opaque and lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Anastasia Zamn Eyeshadow

Anastasia Zamn Eyeshadow

Zamn

Zamn is a light, golden copper with warm undertones and flecks of pink and gold sparkle over a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was easily built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. The consistency was a bit more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was some excess product that kicked up if I wasn’t careful. This was the only shade that was harder to control fallout of without using a dampened brush, as gently pressing and patting it into place yielded some fallout as did fingertip application (less fallout than a dry brush but still some). The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Wiggalese

Wiggalese is a rich, reddened copper with warm undertones and a pearl finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was thin without being too thin (yet not as dense/cream-like as some of the other shimmers in the palette). It applied evenly and blended out effortlessly on bare skin. It wore nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Anastasia Shookington Eyeshadow

Anastasia Shookington Eyeshadow

Shookington

Shookington is a light-medium purple with subtle,c ool undertones and a frosted sheen. The consistency was drier, and it felt more loosely-pressed in the pan, so there was a fair amount of excess product that kicked up–I’d recommend using a light hand with it. I was able to press and pat it into place without running into issues with fallout during application, but you’ll have even better success applying it with a slightly dampened brush. It had semi-opaque coverage with some fallout during application. This shade lasted well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer or applied with a dampened brush. The texture felt cream-like, more silicone-based, so it had some slip, which helped the sparkles and micro-sparkles bind with the base and minimized the chance of fallout (I didn’t feel it had fallout when I used it, but it was more prone to spreading further than intended during blending). It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed a bit of fading.

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.

Edges is a slightly muted, medium copper with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was soft, silky, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Anastasia Sponsored Eyeshadow

Anastasia Sponsored Eyeshadow

Sponsored

Sponsored has a warm-toned, caramel brown base with green-to-teal shifting shimmer that gave it a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, cream-like texture that wasn’t too thick or too thin, and the texture just “melted” on my skin for an incredibly reflective finish. The eyeshadow lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Anastasia Ginger Eyeshadow

Ginger

Ginger is a light-medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and easy to work with; it was just barely powdery in the pan but didn’t give me trouble with fallout during application nor did it lose its intensity when applied and blended out. This shade stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
