Y’all know how much I love a good drugstore product, but when I first laid eyes on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette, I knew Anastasia hand crafted this JUST for me. In fact, this is my first high-end palette! I ordered the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette from Sephora.com along with my favorite Huda Beauty Lashes. I damn near fainted when I opened the box!
The color selection is everything you’ll need for a classic, seductive eye. Below, I’ve created several looks with using JUST the Soft Glam palette!
Now that I’ve seen the high-end light, I think it’s time for me to retire my Morphe 35O Palette. When I was first learning how to blend and practice eyeshadow application techniques, I didn’t want to make a huge investment with a $40+ palette. The Morphe 35O Palette worked for me at the time and allowed me to create new color combinations that I wouldn’t otherwise try.
I find myself reaching solely for my Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette because it has the colors that I use most often from the Morphe 35O Palette, but the pigment and blendability is so much better.
I also prefer the size of this palette for traveling and storage. Speaking of traveling, I love that there’s a makeup brush and a mirror contained within the palette.
Realistically, the palette’s color selection has all you’ll need to create a multitude of looks. There’s no need to supplement other colors (unlike the Juvia’s Place palette–read my review here).
There is a bit of fallout, but if you tap your brush before applying, it doesn’t drastically effect your look. If you apply foundation before eyes, it may be wise to use an under eye shield or apply extra setting powder.
Some of the colors in this palette are the same shades in the Modern Renaissance Palette. I’m actually relieved that Anastasia Beverly Hills decided to do this; how you gon’ transition without Orange Soda, Sway? How? The other duplicate shades are Cypress Umber, Burnt Orange, and Tempura. Anastasia and her team got the memo: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
I have received SO many compliments on my makeup since switching to this palette. I am really impressed with the way these eyeshadows perform!
Is this palette all hype? Definitely not. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette receives the Diva Named Dom stamp of approval!
Until next time,
