Blogmas Day eight - Anastasia Prism palette

I love the quality of the Anastasia shadows so when this was released I knew I needed it in my collection. I have to admit when it first arrived I had no idea what to do with it. It isn't the most cohesive palette in the world and I wasn't sure how to use the more blue/green shades in it.  

Before we go onto the shades I do want to mention the formula, now don't get me wrong this palette isn't quite as dusty as the Subculture palette but the shadows just aren't quite as intense as the modern renaissance. The metallic shades are absolutely beautiful and have a very metallic finish on the lids. The mattes aren't quite as nice as the ones in modern renaissance however they have good pigmentation and other than the black blend really nicely. I do find the black goes a little patchy if blended too much however I tend to have the same problem with most matte black shadows. 

The shades are beautiful but they aren't the most co-hesive in the world. I find to use some of the blue shades I do need to reach for some more purple shades to put in the crease. Other than the black the matte shadows blend beautifully and are no way near as loose in formula as the mattes from subculture. This means that there isn't too much fallout however you do still get some. I do find that the metallic shades do have a bit of glitter fallout so I would definitely suggest that this palette is used before makeup. One thing I do like about the metallics is unlike the subculture palette they haven't sealed which was one of my biggest issues with that palette. 

Moving onto a full breakdown of the shades - 

Lucid - duo chrome white gold shade which looks beautiful in the inner corner. 

Eden - Peachy orange matte shade. 

Unity - Yellow cream matte. 

Sphinx - Beautiful bronze metallic. 

Osiris - Very pigmented metallic purple with pink glitter. 

Sphere - Neon yellow, for me I find this one definitely lacks pigmentation. 

Obsidian - Matte black, again another that I find lacks pigmentation and blends a little patchy. 

Dimension - Grey based medium purple metallic. 

Parallel - Warm brown matte shade. 

Pyramid - Yellow toned gold metallic. 

Throne - Forest green metallic. 

Saturn - Deep orange brick matte. 

Eternal - A more orange copper than sphinx. 

Lure - A gorgeous matte grey toned pinky shade. 

So that's it for today I'd love to know if you have this palette and what you think of it. 


  1. I have this palette too and like it but it's definitely not my favourite ABH palette! xx


  2. I was seriously temped by this one, but decided against it - the swatches are beautiful though, but I think I might be more tempted to pick up the MR!

  3. I’m not overly keen on this one. MR all the way!

  4. I absolutely love the Modern Renaissance, but completely understand what you're saying with the fallout with the shimmery shades - but they're too beautiful to pass up on! And I have the same problem with black shadows as well, so I rarely ever end up using them! Looks like a lovely palette though. x
