Hey lovies! Its been a while!

To start out my plethera of haul posts, lets get started with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made Palette. I picked this up during the Sephora VIB sale but it retails for $35. To be honest, when I first saw this palette I wasn’t that interested in picking it up. The look of it just didn’t wow me. I figured my palette collection was getting pretty big so why buy a palette I thought I wasnt going to love.  Of course I caved after seeing various reviews and swatches on other blogs and YouTube.

Once this arrived, I had to rip it open and swatch it! The shadows are so gorgouesly pigmented and buttery! Add a little MAC Fix+ and the shadows are even more incredible! I can’t believe I almost passed on this palette. I have used this almost every day since it arrived!

The shades in this palette are natural with a few pops of gorgeous color thrown in. I do wish there was another matt transition shade in thsi palette but I’ve actually been able to pull off full looks with this palette. I dont mind using a satin finish in the crease and as much as I love matte shadows, Ive been really into shimmers this holiday season.

I actually can’t even pick a favorite shade! Pink Champagne, Hot & Cold, and Deep Purple are the ones I grab for the most often but I have used every shade in this palette! Here are some (terrible) swatches! The top picture is the top row and the bottom picture is the bottom row of shadows.

Here is what the shadows pink champagne and deep purple look like when applied with MAC Fix Plus.

Lastly here are several eye looks I created using only this palette. The second picture is after about 16 hours of wear. You can see minimal creasing but overall great color.
