The holidays are among us and with that comes new makeup! Anastasia Beverly Hills released the new Prism palette for holiday 2017 and I’m all about it. There’s something about the metallic jewel toned shades in here that spoke to me.
Just from looking at the shades I had a feeling I was going to love this palette. It has neutral shades, cool tones, warm tones, and pops of color. There’s a black, brow bone color, and transition shades. Basically this palette has it all.
After swatching the shadows I was incredibly impressed. The metallics are buttery and pack a punch! And the mattes are pigmented and smooth. The palette continued to impress me once I actually started working with them on my eyes! At first I wasn’t sure if it would be easy to create looks with this since there are so many different colors and tones but I didn’t have any problems. The matte shades pair beautifully with the metallics so you can create endless looks.
I found that the formula of the matte shades are like the Modern Renaissance palette. They were very easy to work with and blended out with little effort. For the metallic shades I’ve had the best experience when I used a wet brush or my finger! Those methods make the shades appear so bright and metallic on the eyes!
The green below, Throne, is the most beautiful green eyeshadow I’ve ever seen. The pigment is crazy and it’s SO shiny and reflective.
I was really impressed with the fact that you can create a full on warm toned or cool toned look with one palette. That’s hard to come by! If you’re in the market for a new eyeshadow palette I would check this one out! It will be perfect for holiday looks 🙂
