I adore spring and the bright hues that the season is associated with. Anastasia Beverly Hills recently released a new palette that truly represents the season – filled with bold pops of magenta, golden yellow and teal. This unique colour combination instantly drew me to the palette. I typically never wear bold eyeshadow colours, but I knew that the Riviera Eyeshadow Palette would be an exception!
The eyeshadow comes in a sleek, fun package. Like other Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palettes, the package features 14 pans of shadow, a dual-ended brush and a large mirror. One major difference in this package is the material that is composed of. Traditionally, Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palettes have a soft, velvety cover but the Riviera Eyeshadow Palette is composed of a canvas material. The outer package has a unique nautical stripe design with alternating stripes of blue and white. The package bears the Anastasia Beverly Hills logo and the word ‘Riviera’ in gorgeous gold lettering.
This palette contains a combination of mattes, metallics, and pressed pigments. The matte shadows are soft and buttery. They apply easily to the eyelid and have no fallout or patchiness. Each of the metallic 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. The pressed pigment shadows are soft, but blend easily without fallout.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette contains 14 shades that range from hot pink to aquamarine:
- Sails – Matte white
- Yacht – Duo-chrome mauve-taupe with a violet undertone
- Seychelles – Metallic aquamarine
- Palermo – Metallic jewel pink
- Seaside – Duo chrome silver with a blue shift
- Inheritance – Metallic gold
- Mediterranean – Metallic sky blue
- Estate – Matte peach with a pink undertone
- Cabana – Matte birch-mustard
- Coastline – Matte pastel soft peach
- Bahamas – Matte bright hot pink
- Monte Carlo – Matte cool pink
- Cannes – Matte bright violet purple
- Palm – Matte chocolate brown
Each eyeshadow blends easily and stays vibrantly pigmented when applied to the lid. There is no fallout from the eyeshadows and they wear without fading for hours. One thing that I quickly noticed about the shade Bahamas is that it sometimes stained my eyelid, but otherwise I had no issues with any of the eyeshadows!
If you are looking for a bright, fun eyeshadow collection for the spring and summer months, I’d highly recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette! Each palette retails for $59 at Sephora.
