Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 3 Vibrant, Bright, and Ready To Take On Fall!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 3 ($60) arrives today! This is the third professional-grade artistry 25-pan palette that the brand has launched since the Summer. I haven’t hauled any of them! Eep! Am I missing out? Do share.

I have to admit this new palette caught my eye as the autumn-inspired shades are lovely. They are so bright and fiery! I actually didn’t immediately think Fall though when I saw them I thought Amazon jungle! The heat of the jungle, the exotic blooms, it just feels like a Jungle-inspired palette doesn’t it?

The palette includes 25 shades and I’m happy to report that Sephora was kind enough to list the shades you can’t use on your eyes. These shades are not FDA approved for safe use around the eye area and can cause irritation for some people and sometimes staining might occur. Those shades are: A2, A3, A5, B3, B4, B5, C2, C3, C4, D1, D2, D4, D5, E1, E2, E3, and E5.

The sheer amount of unsafe eye colors that have been popping up lately is a hot topic in the beauty world and one I’ve address a few times. So I have to admit I am happy they are pointing out which shades might a problem for some people. I think it helps a lot!

Shades include:

  • A1 (matte chartreuse yellow)
  • A2 (matte vibrant orange)
  • A3 (matte harvest pumpkin)
  • A4 (fresh green with a silver sparkle)
  • A5 (matte intense red-orange)
  • B1 (metallic aqua)
  • B2 (matte jade with a gold sparkle)
  • B3 (matte hot flamingo pink)
  • B4 (matte royal fuchsia)
  • B5 (matte light apricot)
  • C1 (metallic sparkling white wine)
  • C2 (matte candy apple)
  • C3 (matte baked cinnamon)
  • C4 (matte mulberry)
  • C5 (titanium teal with a gold sparkle)
  • D1 (matte warm cider)
  • D2 (pale peach with a gold sparkle)
  • D3 (matte true lime green)
  • D4 (metallic orange with a gold sparkle)
  • D5 (peach nectar with a gold sparkle)
  • E1 (matte shamrock green)
  • E2 (matte merlot)
  • E3 (matte vibrant coral)
  • E4 (matte dandelion yellow)
  • E5 (metallic magenta with a pink iridescent shift)

I don’t even think the unsafe eye shades is an issue for me anymore! The real reason I haven’t purchased it is because a palette like this can be challenging to use. Those bright mattes are a little scary for me. It’s a fab assortment of shades for those that are truly makeup artists at heart. But some of us, like me, aren’t that great with a blending brush and might need to step back from a palette like this and leave it to the pros out there.

None the less, it sure is gorgeous.

Do you think you’ll haul the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 3?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I dislike how many palettes ABH has been releasing lately. And these big Norvina palettes, the colors are all over the place. I just can’t deal with it. I am not so worried about the eye safe pigments because I understand they are safe in other places like the EU.

    • Isabella Muse

      I agree! I like ABH because they don’t do release after release after release! Not I feel a bit overwhelmed. me either. They are challenging for the average consumer imho! It’s a lot of bold color in one place! I also feel like you might need to bring in lighter shades to contrast which aren’t readily available in these palettes. Mostly the warning is there for sensitive eyes as these could have an averse reaction if people have sensitive eyes and cause infection god forbid.

      I ranted this on Temptalia. Christine was kind enough to respond that the 3 big Norvinas were slated to appear in three successive seasons, but were not, then all came out within a month. ABH SM apparently broadcast that. It was feeling pretty CP to me. I analogized it to Claire’s from the PRC. I’m very conflicted about the PRC. I draw the line at anything edible for pets, despite getting plenty PRC products/food for myself at the local Asian marketplace. The track record for pet food and treats is an abomination.

    I think this has the nicest colours out of all three of the palettes. I see why it’s considered a fall palette, but it’s a vibrant version of fall; jungle is also a good analogy: rich reds/orange and vibrant greens.

    I probably won’t get this, not because I won’t be able to use it, but I just don’t purchase products made in China still. I know the rules, regulations, and quality control are probably in place, but I just don’t know. I have a couple products from China from Mao GePing, an extremely high-end and luxe line in China that a friend brought back for me. They’re beautiful makeup for sure! And I only used them because my friend insisted they were safe. LOL!

    • Isabella Muse

      Agreed. I think it’s the most wearable for me but the colors are so bold not sure how much use I’d get out of it. Aren’t ABS palettes made in the USA?

    I like the shades, but I think they should’ve taken 10 shades from each of these volume palettes and turned it into just one palette. I’m passing on all three since I have the shades I like from each of them, but if I didn’t, I would still pass because these are just overwhelming palettes with a lot of non-eye safe eye pigments that can be a problem.

      • Carmen

        Yeah and it really bothers me how many shades have a dupe within the same palette. At that price point, what the heck lmao. They may look different in the palette but once it’s on, it’s the same shade and I know I would be irritated if I bought the palette and then discovered that since it’s not like it’s under $30.

        It’s a shame because they usually put out really nice palettes! These just seem like they were onto something for part of each palette and then the rest was just thrown together haphazardly.

        • Isabella Muse

          I agree totally. I think if you have one you can likely create the same look across the board. I’m actually probably in the minority saying this but these palettes feel like they aren’t really made for the general consumer. the colors are sooo bold! Not everyone can pull these off in everyday looks. Plus it feels like you need a lot of no how to create a look with them! maybe that’s me but I feel really overwhelmed just looking at them lol!

    Wow, this is really eye-catching to someone like me who loves brights (and hates neutrals.. and mattes) but the amount of duped pairings within this palette is pissing me off? I mean, damn…
