You may remember Amrezy’s first palette with Anastasia Beverly Hills. It was great for it’s time because influencer collabs were pretty new. (Really it wasn’t that long ago, but we have come a long way in the beauty industry.) Her second palette with ABH came with a BANG! Not only the assortment of colors, but the actual formulas and a few unique shades that I don’t have in my collection.
This palette retails for $49, which is slightly more than the other palettes. However, you are getting more colors!
I am glad I spent my Chinese New Year dollars on this palette. It’s worth the money! And yes, you read that right. I started this blog post back in February, didn’t finish, and then the pandemic hit. I decided to focus in other areas of life rather than makeup blogging for the past several months. But I am posting this now because this is a fantastic palette and I have been defaulting to the Amrezy palette this whole time. I even stayed at a cabin one weekend and brought this as my one and only palette! And that is saying something because I always bring a minimum of four palettes on vacations!
So fresh! So new! So pink and glittery!
The glittery pink and gold packaging is super cute and looks great on my vanity. I appreciate that the glitter doesn’t flake off and get everywhere! Somehow I don’t have a photo of it in this post. It’s gotten a bit dirty since February when I took these photos so there goes that reshoot! 🤣
My favorite two shades: The first is Barb, the super glittery baby pink with an almost iridescent sparkle of gold and aqua. That color alone was a huge selling point for me! Cupcake is the other shade I love. It’s a metallic lilac and makes for a quick look as an all over lid shade.
The two I seem to use all the time are New Yawker and OG, which are very similar tan shades. OG is just a touch redder. New Yawker is a bit yellower. They might just look the same on your eye as you blend it. I always find myself dipping my brush in both at the same time. They’re just great transition shades even though they look the same. I’ve hit pan so they have done their job!
The last three shades 1988, BK and Yugo are the deep matte shades you need to slay that look and make it sultry! Yes, while you may already own shades like it, if you’re going to take just one palette with you, you’d miss them if they weren’t there!
As you can see from this photo, my brush has desecrated the eyeshadows! They’re soft, so be careful not to gouge them out and lose product on the floor! The pressed glitters must be used with care. Gently press a flat brush into them and tap off the excess. Otherwise you risk glitter fallout, which may end up on your eyeball. I would use a primer made for glitters so it sticks well onto your eye. So far I haven’t had any issues, but please exercise caution when using glitter, even if they are cosmetic grade. If they get into your eye, it will feel like a damn rock went in your eye.
As you can see from the picture (and previous review) I like using this with the Stormi Mini Palette from Kylie Cosmetics. I think the colors pair well together! Cupcake + Stormi World is delicious!
I never purchased Amrezy’s first palette with ABH, but you should check out Temptalia’s review and photos if you are interested in knowing more about it. It wasn’t a bad palette, especially for it’s time. I know 2014, wasn’t that long ago! But I am sure Amra was itching to do something way bigger and better. She succeeded! I love this version!
I have a HUGE log of blog posts that need to be posted, so look forward to that and hopefully these reviews will be somewhat entertaining and informative while you are holed up at home.
