I managed to get my hands on the latest palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills, The Prism Palette.
Wanna know what I think???
First impressions was obviously the packaging! when does she ever get it wrong?
Black, velvet and excellent quality. its exactly the same as the renaissance palette in terms of material and quality. You can read my review of that palette here:
The Prism Palette was brought to us last last year so I feel black is very fitting and it is very elegant and timeless.
Now the important bit, the shadows.
Prism Palette: The shadows
The palette has been called the Holiday Eye Shadow Palette and has a mixture of both metallic shades and naturals. There are 14 different eyeshadows including a brush, which is the same in the other palettes and performs very well. especially for a brush that comes with a palette as they are usually rubbish in my opinion.
As you can see by the swatches to pigments are fab in this palette. however, I will say that some shadows do perform better than others.
My favourite shades are Eden and Throne. However some shadows are not as soft as do not apply as well as others. For example Dimension and Unity were a bit disappointing. This was a huge surprise for me as after my experience with the Renaissance palette. I would have assumed every shade is the same formula.
Lets talk about the elephant in the room now shall we. The selection of colours. Well, they don’t exactly have a theme, the names of the shadows are brilliant. But I did look at this and worry about what combinations and different looks I was going to do. After I watched a few YouTube videos I soon discovered my favourite looks. They include my favourite shades Throne and Eden. Once I started playing around, I was super impressed.
I have to talk about the negatives above as I wanted to be honest but my honest opinion is that this is a massive fave of mine and its up there in my top 3 currently. I really do love it.
I had my friend buy this in USA for $45 dollars however it has now been reduced on the ABH Website to $32. I cannot say how long this will be. They do ship to the UK : www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/prism-palette/ABH01-18173.html
I thought at first when I bought the other palette that it was a little expensive but I swear I use it every time I apply make up. I would be embarrassed to show you the state of it as I have used it so much and hit he pan on so many colours. That is my way of saying I you can afford it, you wont regret it.
