Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette Review & Photos

By  |  4 Comments

I have heard sooo much about this palette in the past few weeks, the last time I was at Ulta I couldn’t possibly pass it up! I get excited when the interwebs loves a makeup item, so I made sure to pick it up. The palette includes 10 soft and smokey toned eyeshadows in varying textures. More info below!

AnastasiaPalette 23AnastasiaPalette 22 The palette has a cat theme (never would have guessed from the palette name, amiright?) with the outside being gold with felt leopard print, and the inside having a really cool green blue leopard print design. The palette closes with magnets, and has a really, really awful mirror. I’m talking fun house mirror. Honestly I haven’t seen one this bad on a palette in a loooong time. Good thing that isn’t the reason I bought it :)

AnastasiaPalette 21 You get ten square eyeshadows and  a double sided brush that has a paddle shaped brush and a pencil brush on either end. I like that this comes with a real brush and not a tiny crappy one or sponge tip applicators, but I found this brush to be kinda spiky and not so soft, so I’m not sure if I’ll use it.

 

AnastasiaPalette 20AnastasiaPalette 19Call Back is a soft, peachy champagne shimmer. The shadow itself is very pigmented and quite soft, but isn’t powdery.

AnastasiaPalette 18AnastasiaPalette 17Strut is a deep, dark violet with sparkle. Has the same pigmented, soft-but-not-powdery texture.

AnastasiaPalette 16AnastasiaPalette 15 Scout is a beautiful golden peach shimmer.

AnastasiaPalette 14AnastasiaPalette 13 Beauty Mark is a warm matte chocolate brown. The texture here is soft but the pigmentation is not as strong or as smooth as I would have hoped. It takes a few layers to get decent color payoff.

AnastasiaPalette 12AnastasiaPalette 11LBD is a charcoal satin with slight sparkle. Another one that takes a bit of product to get nice color payoff.

AnastasiaPalette 10AnastasiaPalette 9Day Rate is a cool pink beige. The color payoff is very, very light. I could  barely get it to show up on my arm, and the color is much cooler than my skin tone.

AnastasiaPalette 8AnastasiaPalette 7Couture is a chocolate brown with gold flecks. Better color payoff than Beauty Mark, but still not as great as the shimmers.

AnastasiaPalette 6AnastasiaPalette 5RTW is a soft golden metallic. Great shade!

AnastasiaPalette 4AnastasiaPalette 310k is a light gold metallic. This is an interesting gold shade- its almost like a champagne gold, not so in-your-face as most metallic gold shadows.

AnastasiaPalette 2AnastasiaPalette 1Pose is a really interesting shade- kind of a taupe with a gray-violet overlay. Lots of shimmer.

 

Note- These were all swatched without a primer.

I like this palette because its a neutral palette and easy to wear day and night looks, but the colors aren’t you’re run-of-the-mill shades. A couple of the colors (matte mostly) are on the more difficult side to work with, but I think that the shade range makes it easier to overlook that. For the price I think this is something to possibly check out if you generally wear more earth-toned shades, but want something a little different. I’m gonna bring this with me to my cousin’s wedding.. that Scout shade is calling my name!

Available for $29 from Ulta.

    scout looks great, but I think I’m going to pass on this palette! I already have some similar shades in my collection!
