Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam was my first eyeshadow palette and as you can see it is still well loved! I didn’t bother cleaning the palette off before taking pics because I wanted to show how it looks in real life.
Daytime and nighttime looks can be created easily and no matter what combination you put together it’ll look beautiful. One critique I have of this palette is that you will experience fallout, so you may have to do your eyes first or go in with a light hand. That doesn’t bother me but it’s just something to be aware of when doing your face.
Another thing is that the shimmers are a bit chunky so be careful not to pile your brush with too much color at one time. To minimize fallout use a dampened brush to apply them to your lid. While the mattes are beautiful, they’re not the most pigmented on deeper skin tones so you will definitely have to use an eyeshadow primer beforehand to really get the colors to show.
