Anastasia Beverly Hills released another eyeshadow palette as a part of the brand’s 2018 holiday collection. When I first saw the colour story within this palette, I was instantly drawn to it. Unlike other palettes from the brand, this one has the most unique selection of shimmer shades, which was a key selling point for me. This is a completely cool-toned palette and ideal for creating winter-ready eyeshadow looks!
Out of every Anastasia Beverly Hills palette, this one has the most beautiful packaging. The palette comes in the brand’s standard 14-pan cardboard package. Inside the palette is a dual-ended brush and the eyeshadows. This palette’s beauty comes from the gorgeous sparkly rose-gold packaging.
What drew me to this palette is the cool-toned shadow selection. I love that this combination of colours is perfect for the holidays or winter in general! The matte shadows are soft and buttery. They apply easily to the eyelid and have no fallout or patchiness. Each of the shimmer shadows are pigmented, bright and smooth. I’ve applied the shimmer shadows with both a brush and my fingertips and noticed no difference in pigmentation between the two methods.
This palette contains a variety of smoky, bright, and glittery shades:
- Fresh – Matte ivory
- Pearl – Metallic pearl-white with a soft pink undertone
- Steampunk – Metallic bronze with topaz flecks
- Rose Quartz – Metallic soft peach with a pink shift
- Ember – Metallic bronzed khaki
- Bloom – Matte coral-pink
- Birch – Matte mid-tone yellow taupe
- Cinder – Metallic cool-tone beige taupe with gold flecks
- Twig – Matte cool-toned taupe
- Teak – Metallic golden-brown
- Dystopian – Matte dark brown
- Cyborg – Metallic silver with a violet undertone
- Slate – Matte slate-grey
- Noir – Matte black
Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eyeshadow Palette contains an ideal combination of smoky and sparkly eyeshadow shades that are perfect for the season! I adore the versatility and wear of the shadows. If you are looking for an eyeshadow palette that is wearable for daytime, nighttime or holiday-party looks, I’d definitely recommend this one. Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette retails for $59 at Sephora.
