Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette Review + Swatches

I have only recently heard about Anastasia products, purely because it kept on popping up all on Instagram. I managed to find one website, which sold Anastasia products and that was Cult Beauty. I'm quite surprised with how popular Anastasia products are, that there isn't any other website retailing them.

I have had this palette for about five weeks and wanted to thoroughly try it out before reviewing it.

It comes in a gold, black cardboard palette with leopard like spots on the front. Inside there is a mirror, as well as the eyeshadows and a dual ended brush. You also receive a booklet on how to create different looks.

All the eyeshadow shades are on the back of the cardboard packaging and not on the palette itself, so it can get inconvenient when you want to find out the shades you are using.

Bottom Row Left-Right: Day Rate, Couture, RTW, 10K, Pose.

There are 10 eyeshadows in this palette, with a mix of shimmers and mattes. The colours are on the warmer side, however it will suit all skin tones and it's great for this time of year when you want to wear warmer, autumnal shades on the eyes.

The shades are:

Call back - Subtle shimmery gold
Strut - Deep shimmery aubergine
Scout - Shimmery peachy gold
Beauty Mark - Dark chocolate matte
LBD - Matte black

Day Rate - Matte flesh colour with a pink undertone
Couture - Medium brown with gold flecks
RTW - Shimmery orange
10K - Light shimmery gold
Pose - Dark taupe with specks of silver

The eyeshadows are soft and not powdery, however the a couple of the matte shades seem to swatch quite patchy, but it's better on the lids. They blend very well with minimal fall out. I find the eyeshadows work much better with a primer underneath, as it brings the true colours to life.

I have really enjoyed using this palette and i think it's one i can take travelling with me. I paid £21 from Cult Beauty, which is great value for money, as you do get 10 shades. I like how there is a variety of colours and not just neutral shades. All the colours compliment each other and it's an ideal palette for everyday makeup, but also dramatic evening looks.

Have you tried this palette?
