Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palettes | Swatches

Anastasia Beverly Hills creates some of my ALL TIME favorite eyeshadow palettes. The formula is on point, the shade ranges are GORGEOUS, and basically, they speak to my soul. If you’ve been curious of purchasing one or adding a second, third, or fourth palette to your collection – I have swatches of each.

It is a STUNNER! Soft Glam is described as:

Featuring fourteen essential shades, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eye Shadow Palette is the perfect collection of easy-to-blend, full pigment shadows. With a long lasting formula, this palette is complete with bronze metallics and iridescent finishes ideal for a nighttime look and neutral mattes for daytime.

Shade Descriptions –

Orange Soda: Ultra-matte pastel peach

The reason I love Soft Glam the most is that it’s a softer version of Modern Renaissance. I love MR to death but I have been preferring these shades more lately.

Modern Renaissance

Modern Renaissance’s shade speaks to me on a spiritual level. These are shades I wear the most and never get tired of. If you can’t commit to MR but love these shades, Wet N Wild has a similar palette for $5! You can check out my comparison here!

Prism

Subculture

I don’t think this comes to a surprise to anyone that it’s ranked last. This is described as:

An essential eye shadow collection, Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette features 14 shades that range from grungy mattes to bold metallics with an underground edge. Complement to best-selling Modern Renaissance Palette.

Full pigment and easy-to-blend formula

14 shades with ultra-matte, duo chrome and metallic finishes

Includes dual-ended brush

Shade Descriptions –

Roxy – Ultra matte muted coral

Electric – Duo chrome lime-gold

Fudge – Ultra-matte warm bronze

New Wave – Ultra-matte citron orange

Untamed – Ultra-matte tarnished green

Edge – Ultra-matte gold mustard

Rowdy – Ultra-matte blackened purple

Axis – Ultra-matte blue-green

Mercury – Ultra-matte slate grey

All Star – Ultra-matte vintage wine

Adorn – Metallic bronze

Destiny – Ultra-matte sage green

Dawn – Ultra-matte sand

Cube – Duo chrome pink pearl

DUO CHROME SHADES (Cube / Electric)

For added intensity, pair with setting spray and apply using small, synthetic brushes. For maximum intensity when using shades dry, apply with natural hair brushes or clean fingertips (if using the palette for self-application).

METALLIC SHADES (Adorn)

For a high-impact metallic finish, pair with setting spray and apply using flat, synthetic brushes or clean fingertips (if using the palette for self-application).

ULTRA-MATTE SHADES (Dawn / Roxy / Destiny / Fudge / All Star / Untamed / Mercury / Edge / Axis / Rowdy / New Wave)

Use dense brushes to deposit color and fluffy brushes to blend edges.

PRIMING

Prime with self-setting or matte-finish primer rather than cream or emollient-based primers. For Duo Chrome and Metallic shades, a shimmer base can also be used to amplify the shadow, like the shimmer side of the Highlighting Duo Pencil.

If using concealer as primer, let it dry and set with powder before applying shadows. Pat or pack on color, and for added intensity, layer over blended shadow.

I remember Subculture caused a ton of commotion in the beauty realm for it’s insanely powdery formula that for some, blends out to a weird grey-ish shade, but I actually don’t hate it. It’s not my most used but it works and has beautiful shades, it’s just not a range of colors I’d reach for often compared to Modern Renaissance and Soft Glam. For me, the shades do blend the way I want them to. If you’re interested in buying this palette at a discounted price – check out your local TJ Maxx or Marshalls, there have been tons of ABH sightings there this year and in the last couple weeks, I’ve seen tons of people spot this palette there!

Have you tried ABH’s palettes? If so, which one is your favorite or which do you hope to add to your collection?
