Adding a pop of colour to your makeup is the IN thing this year, and if you’ve been insta-stalking makeup accounts, you know that the possibilities are endless! You could change up your look in just any way; with a dash or even double your liner with a neon yellow or aquamarine eyeliner (top or bottom lash, whichever rocks your look), to putting on daring, bold lip colours like orange matte to electric blue lipsticks. And this ladies, is precisely what inspired me to purchase and review the Artist Palette.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette has 12 versatile bright shades, equipped with 4 matte shades (Dusty Rose, Buttery, Coal, Phresh) and 8 shimmery shades (Aubergine, Anaconda, Punch Fuschia, Blue Velvet, Unicorn, Baby I’m A Star, Orange You Fancy, Beigely).
At first swatch the colour payoff is ok, but when you apply a primer beforehand, the results are much better for most of the shades. If applying a primer is still not enough, try to apply it wet. There are only two colours I still had issues with even after a primer and trying it on wet, and these were Blue Velvet (it’s supposed to have light shimmers, but all I get was a matte-finish) and Coal (a little powdery, so it didn’t blend easily even with a primer). My favourites were Unicorn, Aubergine, Phresh, Punch Fuschia, Anaconda, and Beigely.
