Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadows in Pink Champagne, Dusty Rose, Rose, and Truffle

on
Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Since its launch late last year, Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadows have been getting more and more attention and really helping ABH expand out of their eyebrow and contouring categories. For those of us outside of the US, the ABH single eyeshadows are only available online to purchase right now; as it is, they're only available to buy in-store at select Macy's locations. When I went to NYC in September, I picked up a total of 16 eyeshadows in four quads. Like Makeup Geek, ABH only offers their eyeshadow singles in pan-form right now, so you will need a magnetic palette to put them in. ABH describes them as "finely-milled, highly-pigmented powder eyeshadow [that] is available in 84 hues and eight finishes for maximum versatility." Each eyeshadow contains 1.7 grams of product and comes in a standard size round pan, and retails for $12 USD.

Pink Champagne, Dusty Rose, Rose, and Truffle

Pink Champagne is a light-medium cool rosy taupe-brown with a sparkly, metallic sheen in a Titanium finish. This is a permanent shade. It has a soft, dense, almost buttery texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and opaque colour pay-off. It is  darker and pinker than Anastasia Beverly Hills Rose, lighter and pinker than MAC Sable, darker and more taupe than MAC All That Glitters, lighter and more metallic than Make Up For Ever ME612 Silver Brown, and cooler and less metallic than Makeup Geek Grandstand.
Dusty Rose is a medium-dark muted cool rosy brown in a Velvet finish. This is a permanent shade. It has a soft, dense, almost buttery texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and opaque colour pay-off. It is more brown than MAC Haux, warmer and less taupe than MAC Quarry, slightly lighter and warmer than Make Up For Ever M546 Dark Purple Taupe, lighter and pinker than Makeup Geek Vintage, and darker and warmer than Makeup Geek Unexpected.
Rose is a light-medium warm pinked golden beige with golden sparkle in a Metallic finish. This is a permanent shade. It has a soft, dense, almost buttery texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has medium-high pigmentation and semi-opaque colour pay-off. It is warmer and more golden than Anastasia Beverly Hills Pink Champagne, more pink than MAC Honesty, cooler than MAC All That Glitters, darker and pinker than MAC Sweet Heat, and more pink and more metallic than Makeup Geek Cinderella.
Truffle is a medium-dark warm reddened chocolate brown with bronze pearl in a Shimmer finish. This is a permanent shade. It has a soft, dense, almost buttery texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation to opaque colour pay-off. It is slightly lighter than MAC Mulch, slightly lighter and more bronze than MAC Twinks, darker and more reddened than MAC Bronze, lighter and more reddened than NARS Galapagos, and similar to Makeup Geek Brown Sugar.

Gorgeous, buttery textures with rich, saturated colour; Anastasia Beverly Hills definitely hit the mark with their eyeshadows, with a huge range of shades and a variety of different finishes to compete with some of the best shadows on the market (e.g. MAC, MUFE, Urban Decay, NARS, Makeup Geek, etc.). When these initially launched, ABH had provided both four- and eight-pan empty palettes for free when you purchased the shadows to fill your palette, and the more you bought, the better value it would be (if you bought four shadows, the four-pan palette was free and each shadow was $10, and if you bought eight shadows, the eight-pan palette was free and each shadow was $8.75). But it seems like this deal is different depending on where you buy it from: ABH's website doesn't even offer building your own palette anymore, whereas the Macy's location I went to had only the four-pan palette offer but not the eight, but the Macy's website (in the US only) offers both the four- and eight-pan palettes. (If you're outside of the US, though, forget it — you gotta pay for shipping and duties, too.) That's not to say ABH's shadows aren't worth ordering because they are absolutely worth every penny; it's just annoying that their customizable palette offerings aren't the same across all retailers. So, if you're in the US, or know someone who's in the US and is going to come visit you soon, definitely order from the Macy's website, where they consistently have stock, there's free US shipping for purchases over $50, and they have both the value palette options.

  1. Gorgeous swatches! I would be so tempted if I hadn't broken free of the makeup addiction. :)

    1. Lol, good on you, Liz, really! I'm trying to be better but I think it's harder for me because I'm in the industry, too, so I'm always around makeup. That having been said, I'm on a self-imposed ban until the new year. I'm just hoping I'll be successful, lol.
