Review and Swatches: Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Soft Glam Palette

March 13, 2018

 

Anastasia Beverly Hills recently released the Soft Glam Palette and it’s everything!

From gorgeous shimmers to stunning mattes, this eyeshadow palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills ($55 CAD), is neutral heaven. One way I like to describe these shades is they melt on to your skin and are packed with pigment. This palette is definitely great for everyone! It was created as a neutral palette with touch of glitz for a reason: it is meant to be a go-to for anyone, it transitions beautifully from day to night, and is a dream for makeup lovers because it can be used to create sultry smokey looks as well.

SWATCHES ANYONE?

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette features 14 shades, is a curated ensemble of nudes, pastels and warm peaches that I have been seriously excited about!

Soft Glam is the brand’s toned out version of the Modern Renaissance Palette, and the shades are true to its name – soft and glam. There are pastels, nudes, browns, burgundies and glittery eyeshadows all in one palette.

There are some very pretty dusky mauve roses here combined with sultry browns, shimmering golds, browns, and peaches. If you glance at it quickly, the colors just jive together beautifully but there are a few odd shades here that you might question like Orange Soda which is a light matte peach. But somehow, someway, the shades just work together and I honestly had no trouble thinking up ways to combine the shades into a look.

The shadows are a range of mostly matte and softly pressed metallics and light iridescent shades. For the most part though, the matte does dominate here but I’m fine with that as they make a nice base. The metallics and iridescent shades are a lovely compliment that can you can come up with later to finish off your look.

Like the previous palettes, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette consists of very creams shades. They remind me of melted butter. The texture is so, so soft. Especially the very loosely packed metallic which almost have a cream-like consistency and a very velvety, soft texture. The pigment is quite impressive as I experienced no patchiness during application just a smoothened perfect application. Believe me when I tell you, the shades are super creamy and pigmented that I don’t even think I’ll need a primer!

Shades include:

  • Tempera (ultra-matte velvety beige)
  • Glistening (iridescent gold with a hint of pink reflect)
  • Orange Soda (ultra-matte pastel peach)
  • Rose Pink (rose gold with a soft pink iridescent hue)
  • Sultry (hybrid satin metallic finish warm chocolate brown)
  • Bronze (metallic gold bronze)
  • Mulberry (ultra-matte mulberry)
  • Dusty Rose (ultra-matte dusty lilac)
  • Fairy (multi-imensional light gold)
  • Burnt Orange (ultra-matte deep orange)
  • Sienna (ultra-matte earthy brown)
  • Rustic (ultra-matte deep cinnamon brown)
  • Cyprus Umber (ultra-matte dark coffee)
  • Noir (ultra-matte deep carbon black

This was a purchase that I don’t regret and will be making a lot of use out of these shades!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette is available at Sephora & Ulta Beauty.

Anyone purchase it?

What was your experience with it?
