Hi guys, today I want to share with you an eyeshadow palette, which has without question become my most used and most loved palette as of late. But before I get too into this post, there is a little disclaimer I must make. Getting hold of this palette has become extremely difficult as it is limited edition however I thought I would still go ahead and make this post for you all as all these shadows will be launching individually. So the palette in question is none other than Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette.
When I realised this palette was launching I was extremely eager to get my hands on it because I knew that it was going to extremely compliment to my tan olive skin tone. The palette was created via collaboration with Amra Olevic (Amrezy) who is an Instragram sensation and a makeup artist extraordinaire. She creates beautiful looks and has such a lovely golden skin tone so I was eagerly awaiting to swatch the shadows and see if they suited me as much as they suited her. And did they just! The hues of this palette are golden, rich with a luxurious silky finish – if I had to create my own palette I would definitely feature similar shades.
Before I share swatches of this palette, let us talk about the shadow quality. I’ve said this about the Tamanna palette and I’ll say for the same for these shades too, Anastasia has really raised the bar when it comes to the formulations and met the likes of Urban Decay shadows head on. Colour pay off is just amazing, you’ll see what I’m talking about when I show you the swatches. The blendability (yes I made that up) is just as good as Urban Decay shadows, the formula is silky so can be manipulated easily making looks like the smokey look much easier as you have less harsh lines. The one point that may just make it better than the UD shadows is the fall out factor – it is very minimal. My biggest vice (vice – get it? If not don’t worry) with UD shadows is the fall out and I love how with these shadows there is hardly any. AND the palettes are cheaper!
So swatch time. Let’s check out the vividness of these shadows, applied on the back of my hand without any primer! When it comes to eyeshadows I find the brand hierarchy doesn’t really apply as I have Tom Ford palettes and I always find that Urban Decay have better quality shadows and I find this palette is another testament to that theory.
My favourite and most used shadows from this palette are Caramel, Morocco and Deep Plum. I’ve used three shades religiously and use them to create a slight warm smokey look. I love the warm tones of these shades, I don’t think I’ve ever owned a palette this warm and complimentary to my skintone. Anastasia collaborated with Maya Mia to create a more cooler toned palette which I am sure is just as amazing but I gave it a miss because even though I was certain to use the shadows in that palette I just wouldn’t utilise it enough. When I hit pan on these three shadows, without a second thought I will definitely be ordering the individual pans of shadow.
The individual pans of eyeshadows will be launching any day soon over at Anastasia Beverly Hills, and will surely trickle its way over to our UK shores. Anastasia Beverly Hills has made a huge impact on the beauty market especially since their launch of DipBrow and I cannot wait to see what else they bring out with. When I have a little more time on my hands I will try create some looks for you all, I’ve used the palette on my daily looks and you can find pictures of that on my Instragram under @MakeupAtoZ. Until next time loves, have an amazing day. Tanzina x
