5 stars out of 5

Anastasia Beverly Hills Daytime Eyeshadow Quad ($32) is one of two new, limited Spring 2019 eyeshadow palettes. I purchased this without thinking about it at all as I knew from my experience with palettes like Modern Renaissance, Sultry, Master, and others that I wouldn’t be disappointed.

Another thing that sold me on this palette and had me quickly buying it was the how-to video. I LOVE the fresh yet light look they created with these shades. I was sadly unable to replicate it as the shades come across much stronger on me. It looks like they used a much lighter hand on the model’s look and I’m so damn heavy handed I just couldn’t get the look they created down. None the less, I had a blast with it and I highly recommend picking it up if you like sunset eye looks! That being said though, this palette doesn’t have a ton of unique shades but the quality is fantastic which might be a key selling point for you as well as the value.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Daytime Eyeshadow Quad is a refreshing change from the larger palettes the brand is known and loved for. Sometimes it’s nice just having four shades to work with! The palette is also refillable. These shade easily pop out after you hit pan and replace with any Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Single. Not to mention the compact is quite cute! It’s a very light pink shade with a bronze-y beige palm tree design.

For those who might have a lot of singles from the brand don’t worry these are all new shades!

You get:

    • Sunny (Metallic sunset golden yellow)
    • Sand Castle (Matte sandy nude)
    • Papaya (Matte pastel orange)
    • Rose Quartz (Metallic pink with peach shift)

I like the contrast of metallic and mattes. They just work well together and the look isn’t as harsh as it would be if you were going straight metallic with your look. I typically don’t like metallics all that much as they appear frosty but these are very refined and come across more sparkly. The texture is buttery smooth on both of them! I found applying with my fingered worked better than a brush with these as they have an almost cream-like texture! The mattes were equally lovely with a silky yet powdery texture that applied and blended beautifully. ABH rarely disappoints with her eyeshadows and these are just fabulous in my opinion! I always feel like her eyeshadows are so soft and buttery smoother! There’s also plenty of pigmentation with the metallics and the shade called Papaya (that pretty warm orange) but Sand Castle was a LITTLE more sheerer compared to the other three shades but still built well.

As for value you’re getting four 0.06 oz eyeshadows here which works out to $8 per shade. MAC singles are $7 per a shade and 0.04 oz per shade. The value is pretty damn good here. Add in the fact that the quad is completely refillable as well and you have yourself a lovely little deal.

As head into Spring we’ll be seeing more and more Summer Makeup Collections start to trickle down the line and although, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Daytime Eyeshadow Quad is part of a Spring release this little palette will work well into Summer to create pretty sunset eye looks!

It’s a keeper!

And Muse Approved.

    I love and will get both! But, I wonder if they will come to Ulta (points!!)!

    I see what you mean about the video! It sure drives up the “gotta have it” factor but I think that fat, fluffy brush is also essential to achieving that super buffed out look!

      that’s major blending right there! I tried it with a few different brushes but I still kept getting a lot more pigmented than I wanted. I start blaming it on the fact she was considerably lighter than me so the colors sort of showed up different but in the end, it’s all about brilliant blending (could be bright lighting too!).
