Eyeshadow palettes are my biggest weakness when it comes to makeup, I love to collect them and even though I have enough eyeshadows to last me a lifetime and some more, there’s nothing stopping me from purchasing new ones. If I could I would probably buy most of the palettes available on the market, thankfully I can’t afford this kind of craziness, but every now and then (quite often to be honest) I find a palette that I just need to have. As soon as I saw the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture World Traveler palette popping on Instagram I fell in love with it. I couldn’t get my hands on the other palettes of ABH, so I just had to get this one.
Soft Peach – the name describes the colour perfectly, it’s matte shade, very similar to my skin tone but works perfectly as a transition crease shade, it’s silky soft with good colour payoff.
Morocco – medium brown with orange undertones, matte finish, great pigmentation and formula.
Heirloom – blackened matte purple with golden and purple sparkles, good pigmentation, silky soft, the sparkles tend to fall during the application so a sticky base and/or wet brush is advisable. It looks gorgeous applied over black pencil.
Bellini – beautiful golden peach with satin finish, good pigmentation and beautiful formula.
Pink Champagne – intensely sparkly, metallic pink with great pigmentation, it produces a bit of fallout during the application but using wet brush solves the problem and the eyeshadow looks like foiled one, gorgeous.
Chic – light silvery taupe, the pigmentation is not the best and it has to be layered over light base or used with wet brush to get the best of it, other then that it’s silky soft and doesn’t produce too much fall out.
Spoiled – I feel like the name is actually spot on as this shade spoils the palette for me, the pigmentation is poor and the golden sparkles, while they look lovely in the swatch, don’t stick to the base and fall over the eye area. It looks better layered over peach cream eyeshadow but on its own is really un-usable in my opinion.
Fudge – warm chocolate brown, matte finish, great pigmentation and lovely silky formula.
Azure – bright blue with black base and satin finish, great overall formula.
Intense Gaze – beautiful burgundy pink with satin finish, great pigmentation and buttery soft.
Metallic – antique gold with metallic finish and fantastic formula, love how unique this shade is.
Noir – matte black, great formula, normally I don’t get excited about black eyeshadow in a palette but the ABH ones are fantastic, blackest black and I love using it as my eye liner as it creates softer look and it’s also easier to correct any mistakes then with gel liner.
