When I first saw the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina Palette I fell more in love with the outer packaging than anything… even more than those beautifully saturated eyeshadow shades. I mean…. does packaging really get any better than that stunning, metallic, chrome rainbow, snakeskin print?!
But, I digress, I love the eyeshadows as well. I still hate the brush (because it’s still the same brush and that blender side is so scratchy) but the eyeshadows are absolutely magnificent… pigmented, bendable… it’s easier to create a look than you’d think.
The first pic is taken in natural light with no sun. The pic under the shade list is taken in direct sunlight. No matter what Edges and Ginger are pulling more warm than they actually are in real life. They’ve definitely got the orange-y undertones to them, but note it’s more apparent in these pics.
14 eye shadow shades are available in: Soleil (metallic soft peach with a gold shift), Supreme (matte rosy pink), Pinker (matte mid-tone cool plum), Big Wig (matte rich purple), Dwollahs (metallic golden olive), Credit (deep matte plum brown), Lituation (metallic deep taupe with a violet shift), Zamn (sparkling rose gold), Wiggalese (metallic cranberry red), Shookington (metallic violet with a blue shift), Trust Issues (sparkling white gold), Edges (matte deep peach), Sponsored (metallic chocolate with a teal shift) and Ginger (matte caramel brown).
It’s important to note that several of these shades are marked as “pressed pigments” and are not recommended as being safe for use on the eye. Those shades are Supreme, Pinker and Big Wig. I didn’t personally have any issues, but if you’re sensitive to these types of pigments or are worried I would say err on the side of caution or at the very least patch test before fully applying/wearing.
Because I already shared my ABH x Jackie Aina EOTD yesterday I thought today would be the perfect day to share the swatches. Below the swatches are done dry and on bare skin (no primers).
