Another Norvina Palette? Yup, Norvina Vol. 4 Is Coming!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Vol. 4 is on the way and my feelings for this are summed up very nicely with the meme I just posted on Twitter. You see, a long time ago in a not so distant galaxy there was a time when Anastasia Beverly Hills released two maybe three palettes a year. Fast forward to the present time and ABS launches eyeshadow palettes every single day. Like, every single day. It’s like they are trying to make up for loss time.

Listen, I happen to really like Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palettes and I felt like what made them special was the limited releases. When ABS released a palette it was something to actually get excited about. Now? Well, not so much.

First off, I’d like to express my grumpy feelings over the fact that they did say they wouldn’t be launching another palette until the Fall. They even realized they had to slow their roll. But that went out the window because Norvina Vol. 4 is on the way May 11at at Sephora. It’s a softer pink palette compared to the bright, bolder Norvina Palettes of the past.

I’ll throw it out there and dare to say I don’t like the Norvina Palettes. I have never purchased a single one of them because I feel like the colors are too bold and overwhelming. That’s my opinion. I realize some people adore them and really dig the shades. I’m just not enough of an artist or a great blender to use a palette like these.

Apparently, Norvina Vol. 4 is the last palette of 2020 but there’s a key phrase here, “It’s the last palette from Norvina!” That’s leaves room for them to release other items OUTSIDE of Norvina’s launches. See what they did there? Yeah, me too.

I’m also going to throw another option out there and say that the Norvina Palettes are just so weird for ABS. Ok, so Modern Ren is a pretty bright palette but most of ABS releases really go with standard nude, natural shades. It seems so odd to see them releasing these SUPER bold palettes that rival stuff that even Urban Decay has launched.

All that being said, Norvina Vol. 4 is def tame compared to the last few volumes.

Do I need Norvina Vol. 4 in my life?


I’d be happy if they just back to what they used to release. I feel like the Norvinas are going to be like Tarte Bloom Palettes where they end up being on sale for every single holiday like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Ulta 21 Days of Beauty, etc…!

And those are my thoughts of the day.

What do you think of yet another Norvina Palette?

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.

    Are they even doing well anymore? I never really hear much buzz about them.

      I think they are instagram famous like most brands.

    I was disappointed in the number of shades in their previous release that were not approved for eyes. Ethically how can a company release a eye shadow palette and include a disclaimer noting it is not safe for the purpose it is marketed as, eyeshadow. 16 of the 25 shades in the Vol 4 are not intended for use around the immediate eye area as stated on their website. Skipping this release may be the best thing for me. I want to retain seeing the beauty that life has to offer.

      you have no idea how many times i’ve ranted this about abs, huda beauty, colourpop, and more.

      It seems the more we consumers bitch about non-eye-safe, the more NES they include in their palettes. Between the unsafe pigments and the PET glitter, it’s a wonder we’re not all blind. Some of the pigments and I think maybe even PET glitter, are ok by EU standards. But still, it’s a major middle finger to consumers… Either the Cos think we’re too dumb to notice/research or they think they are so irresistible that OMGFOMO we’ll buy anyway. Getting real sick of all the chutzpah. And the pretense. Like they say about the duck, if it’s in a pan in an eyeshadow palette, it must be….no, wait! It’s not really eyeshadow. WTF?

      With the whole stay at home thing I haven’t been wearing eye makeup very much, many once a week if that. And I will say my eyes are much less watery and irritated than usual, even during allergy season! It definitely makes me wonder what’s in the stuff in using. I don’t do the neon colors, altho I do use ones with shimmer or fine glitter.

    I have a friend that has two of the other ones the purple and the blue/green release and she has done some amazing looks with both . This one I don’t mind , I have been thinking of ordering one of these or one of the new Sugarpill capsules . It just comes down to which color story I like the most . I like the bright purple and this soft pink the most though.
