Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette Review and Swatches

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette has to be my favorite palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

It is described as being the ultimate makeup artist's palette.

The packaging is very elegant with its black and gold color combo.


The inside of the palette is even more impressive!

Look at these shadows, they are so gorgeous and come in a wide variety of colors.

There are neutral shades, dark shades, and even pop of color shades.

Some of the shades are shimmer, some matte, some satin, some titanium, some metallic, some duochrome, some sparkle, some velvet, and some ultra matte (I had no idea there were so many different types of finishes).

The wide range of finishes makes this palette even more appealing.


Below are descriptions of the shades in the Self-Made Palette:

  1. Pink Champagne (My favorite eyeshadow ever, which has replaced Stila's Kitten) - Rose gold, titanium finish.
  2. Metallic Plum- Dark plum, metallic finish
  3. Self-Made - Deep bronze, satin finish
  4. Witchy - Khaki gray, sparkle finish
  5. Blush - Light beige, duochrome finish
  6. Blossom - Lilac pink, metallic finish
  7. Buttery - Beige, ultra-matte finish
  8. Deep purple - Amethyst purple, titanium finish
  9. Treasure - Champagne, metallic finish
  10. Hot & Cold - Rum brown, metallic finish
  11. Sherbert - Light peach, velvet finish
  12. Isla - Sea Foam green, duochrome gold finish
  13. Spirit Rock - Galaxy black, sparkle finish
  14. Hot Chocolate, Cocoa brown, ultra-matte finish

My Review:

I love that the eyeshadows come in a variety of shades and finishes.

You can create many different looks with this palette, ranging from every neutral to night time going out looks.

It contains Pink Champagne which is only the best eyeshadow ever!

The shadows are smooth and easy to blend.

There was some fallout with the shadows which can be avoided if you tap your brush before applying the shadows to your eyes.

The few mattes in the palette had good pigmentation.

I created two looks last week with these shadows and they lasted all day, no creasing and they were still vibrant.

Overall I am happy with this palette, you get 14 eyeshadows for $35.

The Self-Made Palette is currently only available online on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website, but look for it soon at Sephora, Ulta, and other retailers that carry Anastasia Beverly Hills.
