I often favour eyeshadow palettes with bright, unique shades. That all changed when Anastasia Beverly Hills released the Soft Glam palette. This palette contains a combination of neutral, everyday eyeshadow shades. (Although, I’ll admit, the shade that initially attracted me to the palette is the carbon black shade ‘Noir’.)
I adore the unique colour of this palette. Soft Glam contains 14 eyeshadows, and the same velvety cover as its predecessors. The palette is an eye-catching mustard-yellow. The palette features white lettering.
Each shade is versatile. The shades in this palette are wearable during the day or night. The palette contains a combination of matte, duo-chrome and metallic finishes:
- Tempera – Ultra-matte velvety beige
- Glistening – Shimmering gold with a pink-pearl reflect
- Orange Soda – Matte peach
- Rose Pink – Rose-gold with light pink shimmer
- Sultry – Chocolate brown with a satin-metallic finish
- Bronze – Gold shimmer
- Mulberry – Matte wine
- Dusty Rose – Matte lilac with pink undertones
- Fairy – Shimmering champagne
- Burnt Orange – Matte deep orange
- Sienna – Matte earthy-brown
- Rustic – Matte cinnamon
- Cyprus Umber – Matte dark brown
- Noir – Matte carbon black
I hesitated to try this palette. The last palette released, Subculture, received criticism due to the patchy quality. To my delight, each shadow in the Soft Glam palette was soft, buttery, and blended well. The shimmer shades were bright and pigmented. Each of the matte shades blended easily, though I did experience small patches with the shade Mulberry. There was no fallout or creasing with any of the eyeshadows.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette is a versatile, beautiful palette. The combination of shades pair nicely. I enjoy that I can create softer eyeshadow looks or a bolder, smoky eye. This is a great palette if you prefer softer eyeshadow colours but it also contains a perfect selection of darker shades. If you’ve tried any of Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow singles, you will notice that this palette contains some of those shades.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette retails for $42 at Sephora.
