Anastasia Beverly Hills: Shadow Couture World Traveller Palette

Anastasia’s Beverly Hills makeup has been on my makeup wish list for the longest time, that’s why I am dedicating one post each to review the Shadow Couture World Traveller palette, and the next post will be on the Artist Palette.

Each palette is priced at CAD$39 before tax, 12 colours in each palette (shimmers and mattes), one dual-ended brush, and an interior mirror. Packaging isn’t heavy and quite sturdy, so you can definitely carry it around your purse when you’re travelling.

The colour payoff (swatch-based) are mostly pigmented, buttery, easy to blend. I applied a good eye base primer, and the colour build-up is just amazing.

My absolute favourite colours from the Shadow Couture are Morocco, Bellini, Pink Champagne, Chic, Azure, Intense Gaze, and Metallic.

Below are 2 looks I created. The first was using the Shadow Couture palette, and the second was a mix with the Artist palette. Makeup details are described below each picture.

1. I will say that this was my take on an Earthy smoky look. I used Soft Peach all over lid, Morocco on top and outer corner crease, Fudge on corner crease and a also used it to create a soft cut-crease effect, Spoiled on center of lid, Pink Champagne on inner corners, then Fudge on lower lash line.
