My Custom Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palette


Anastasia Beverly Hills single neutral eyeshadows review

Anastasia Beverly Hills single eyeshadows have been on my radar for the longest time but although most ABH products are available to buy from Cult Beauty and Beauty Bay, unless you wanted a customs charge, the eyeshadows were out of reach for those of us on this side of the Atlantic! That was until shortly before Christmas when the ABH website expanded to include a UK site with eyeshadows ripe for the picking!

The Anastasia pre-made eyeshadow palettes don’t appeal to me (part from the Mario Dedivanovic one which wasn’t sold here!) as they have too many shades I wouldn’t use/are too warm toned (Modern Renaissance I’m looking at you) so I was in my element picking the shades I knew I would get use out of for my custom palette!

After much Google swatch stalking, I started adding to my basket even though I thought £10 was a bit much for a pan. That was until I got to 4 pans and saw the price drop to £30 and the bundle offer pop up - £30 for 4 pans plus an empty palette or £50 for 8 pans and a palette and you can clearly see which offer I went for – it was Christmas after all!

Anyway, here is my run down of the shades I got and swatches! As far as I am aware, the entire single eyeshadow range comes in a variety of finishes – satin, velvet, shimmer, metallic ultra-matte, titanium and duo chrome and being a creature of habit I went for mostly matte shades! I also think this was my last big makeup purchase before my try not to buy started up but more on that next week!

Lace
The lightest and I’m sorry to say it - most disappointing shade from the ones I picked – Lace is a light beige with a satin finish (I think!) that just does not show up on my lid at all! I’m pale and this is extremely sheer on me no matter how much I pack on!

Sateen
A gorgeous shimmer champagne frost that is so soft and pigmented and doesn’t give any fall out.

Birkin
A warm beige mauve ultra-matte that definitely stands out as the warmest in this palette and is a gorgeous transition shade.

Chiffon
A warm brown with a metallic finish and almost khaki undertones, like Sateen it’s really smooth to apply and beautifully pigmented.

Stone
An ultra-matte light ash grey neutral taupe that I like to put all over the lid.

Warm Taupe
An ultra-matte soft brown that is also in the Modern Renaissance palette and was one of the only shades I was drawn to! Another one that I either put all over the lid or position more towards my crease.

Ash Brown
An ultra-matte dark cool brown that I use in my outer V and can double up as an eyebrow shade for me.

Smoke
An ultra-matte charcoal brown I use as an eyeliner.

All the shadows are high quality, pigmented and last well throughout the day (I use a primer). The palette that came in the bundle is such high quality too! It feels sturdy, has a clear lid and the magnets feel strong. I definitely think if you are interested in getting some ABH shadows, wait until you have 4 or 8 you want because it’s a much better deal than buying 1 or 2 at £10 each. I like the shadows and they have a huge range of shades but I definitely don’t think they are worth spending £10 each on! The bundle deal I got puts the shadows at £6.25 each not including the palette which is on a par with Makeup Geek now they have increased their prices and I think that’s where they sit for me although overall I do prefer the Kat Von D matte formula!

In hindsight, I do wish I had picked up a few more shades that weren’t matte but saying that I use mattes daily so I probably wouldn’t be getting as much use out of the palette if I had!

So, that’s my 8 pan palette! Let me know if you ordered anything off the site or what your favourite shades are!

  1. Such a fab post! Love that you can customise it to suit the shades you want! I've bought waaaayyy too many palettes where I've just only ended up using one shade and leaving the rest! x

  3. I love Anastasia eyeshadows! I wish I'd got more in my first UK order to get the bigger palette haha. I've actually not tried any of these shades but I'll have to check some of them out because my collection is in need of some cooler tones :)

  5. I don't use eyeshadows much so these aren't ones I would get myself (although you got a good deal), although I do like the colors you picked out! Sateen and Chiffon are my favorites.

  6. I visited your blog earlier this morning but no update so I am back again! LOL! I have never been into single eyeshadows, I don't know why. I guess I am so used to the ease of palettes but I am starting to see the appeal of creating your own palette by selecting your own shades.

  10. That palette is so much nicer than the one I received when ordering from the US site - it was a cardboard one - still sturdy but I prefer the one you have! I agree that they aren't worth £10 each but this is a good deal! xx

  13. The formula sounds really lovely and very long-lasting (even with a primer, my eyeshadows never last all day). You have a beautiful shade selection here as well, Chiffon and Stone are gorgeous (such a shame though because my favourite shade is Lace)!

    1. I'd say they are equal though maybe the shimmer ones are slightly better! Not worth £10 for one though so I'd wait until you have 4 or 8 you want so you get the bundle deal! Xx

  27. My favourite ABH eyeshadow is Custard. I'm pale so warm orange-y tones don't work as a transition tone as well for me, but Custard is perfect.
