Hi dear everyone, today’s post is the belated review for Anastasia Beverly Hills Cat Walk Eye Shadow Palette and also the very first eye shadow palette review in my blog (sorry for the delay for the post.)
Lately, I bought a few Anastasia Beverly Hills makeup products including the couture palette, Dip Brow Pomade, Lavish eye shadow palette because her brow products are extremely popular on social media. I have to say I am impressed with everything that I bought from so far; also like that they ship to Australia directly with reasonable shipping fee (US$18) and delivery time(a week).
I bought the Cat Walk palette when the Dip Brow Pomade was finally in stock (dark brown). The price of the palette is fairly affordable, US$29 (after the exchange rate, it’s slight higher in Australian dollars) for 10 eye shadows (Matte shades net wt 1.0g, Shimmer shades net wt. 0.86g). I adore this palette because all the eye shadows are warm colors that suit my skin tone.
Packaging: durable, light weighted cardboard with magnetic lid. There is a mirror inside that it’s convenient when you travel with you; however, I don’t like it as it makes me feel that it distorts my view. I also hope that names of all the colors are printed inside that are on top of each color so I don’t need to keep the box.
Brush: a usable double ended eye shadow brush, I especially like the flat side which can pack colors onto my eye lids. Quality wise, it’s soft enough(I believe it’s synthetic) and not scratchy if you are wondering.
Corresponding shades from left to right:
Top roll: Call Back(Shimmer), Strut(Shimmer), Scout(Shimmer), Beauty Mark(Matte), LBD (Matte)
Bottom roll: Day Rate(Matte), Couture(Shimmer), RTW(Shimmer), 10K(Shimmer), Rose(Shimmer)
The swatch above is one swipe only without eye primer. As you can see, all the colors are pigmented. Texture wise, they are smooth and not chalky at all( I wouldn’t say it’s creamy); it is surely good quality. I did experience fall-out with the darker shades such as LBD and Beauty Mark, however, it does not affect my overall satisfaction with this palette. I do hope there is a matte skin colored shade in the palette as I feel that shade Day Rate is not light enough to blend out harsh lines and make the looks muddy; however, I like that it’s a nice transition color which has mauve tone that works well with other darker eye shadows in the palette. All the shimmer eye shadows show duo chrome to me and not metallic.
I have been enjoying this palette. Due to rich pigmentation, they are super easy to apply and I haven’t experienced any difficulties when blending the shadows out. Plus there are many possibilities and combinations you can create using this palette(no matter it’s day time or night time looks). These eye shadows are quite long lasting even on my super oily eye lids; it can last at least eight hours on my eyes so you don’t need to worry it fade off (I find that to make eye shadows last longer, the trick is to pack/layer them).
All in all, I like this palette, and it’s one nice addition to my growing eye shadow palette family.
