Ohhhh, you already KNOW that we’re suckers for this one. Anastasia Beverly Hills is launching their NEW Sultry Eyeshadow Palette on Tuesday, 9.25! The palette features 14 shades split evenly between seven mattes and seven metallics. This beauty, and a bunch of other stuff they are releasing the same day, will be available on ABH’s website on the 25th and then the other online retailers on October 9th.
We are ABH palette collectors so you can bet we are eyeing this one! Firstly, we love the name and overall vibe of this palette! The packaging is freaking INCREDIBLE! Like yes, give me all of the rose gold glittery goodness! We’re also loving that these more recent ABH palettes have been a bit more balances between mattes and shimmers (unlike some prior palettes that were pretty matte-heavy). I am of the formerly unpopular opinion that the ABH eyeshadow formula is BOMB! I even love Subculture (shhhhh…). So basically, I’m suuuuper excited about this palette except… the color story is just a little uninspiring, ya know?
I totally think this definitely fits the “Sultry” vibes they were going for, but it also fits with every other neutral, naked-esque palette that we already have. Even from the swatches, you can see that like, at least 4 or 5 of the shimmers looks almost identical. However, this might almost be worth purchasing just for the last 6 shades in the right side of the palette; we are DYING over those! The 4 mattes are perfect (especially that steel gray – I always want a gray in palettes but most palettes don’t have one) and that pop of coral and you know we always need a black!) and the two shimmers are stunning (mmmm, that icy white silver is literally me. just me). Soooooo in the end, yeah, we will probably be getting our hands on this but we do wish there was some more variety in the first half of the palette.
