Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Eyeshadow Palette​ Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Scrolling through my social media feed and seeing all these new eyeshadows palettes launched for this holiday season, I suddenly realized that I’ve never shared my review on Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism eyeshadow palette. In my opinion, this is one of the best limited-edition eyeshadow palettes they have ever launched. And this is why.

Unique Color Selection

First of all, ABH Prism Palette has every single shade you can think of!

The palette consists of 14 different shades including ultra-matte, duo-chrome, and metallic pigments. Prism palette has that fancy holiday blue-green (Throne) and trending violet-blue (Osiris) shade, along with duo-chrome lilac (Dimension) and blush Eden shade accompanied by neutral matte brown (Parallel) and seasonal orange (Saturn) and warm shimmery Pyramid and Eternal shades.

Shades included:

  • Lucid (Duo chrome white-gold with pink reflect)
  • Eden (Ultra-matte coral pink)
  • Unity (Ultra-matte nude ochre)
  • Sphinx (Metallic warm bronze)
  • Osiris (Metallic midnight violet with red reflect)
  • Sphere (Ultra-matte electric green-yellow)
  • Obsidian (Ultra-matte deep black)
  • Dimension (Duo chrome silver-grey with pink reflect)
  • Parallel (Ultra-matte truffle)
  • Pyramid (Metallic yellow-gold with green reflect)
  • Throne (Metallic blackened blue-green with multicolor reflect)
  • Saturn (Ultra-matte terra-cotta)
  • Eternal (Metallic violet copper)
  • Lure (Ultra-matte ashy lilac)

All of these colors are extremely wearable, probably except for this lime Sphere shade. Nevertheless, I saw people mixing and matching the Sphere shade making it look really good even for the day look.

By matching and mixing the matte shades you can create a perfect eyeshadow look for a day. At the same time, by dabbing pigmented shimmery shades you can achieve a dramatic look for the night.

Speaking of the color theory, the selection of shades works with most of the complexions, including warmer skin tones that sometimes are being neglected. Even those prismatic metallic eyeshadows that have cool undertones have tiny inclusions of warmer colored sparkles. These sparkles make cool shades adapt to the warmer skin tone for a flawless fit.

Formula

As with every eyeshadow palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills, eyeshadows in Prism palette are extremely pigmented and have a long-wear formula. Moreover, they are very blendable and quite creamy yielding the full coverage with just one swipe.

Each shade can be worn alone or mixed with any of these 14 shades. I haven’t seen any other holiday eyeshadow palette with shades that will flatter pretty much every complexion.

Packaging

The palette comes in a luxurious black velvet finish packaging with a mirror and dual-end eyeshadow brush (densely packed brush on one side and a fluffy brush on the other). It is lightweight which makes it travel-friendly.

The only sad thing about this palette is that it is a limited edition. The good part, you can still find this amazing palette at ABH and Nordstrom.

It is important to mention, during the Black Friday, ABH will release a collection of four eyeshadow palettes including Soft Glam, Subculture, Modern Renaissance and Prism (with the total value of $168) for only $90! The collection is limited in quantity and will be available at the ABH US and ABH UK online stores on Black Friday!
