In this review, I’ll be looking at Anastasia pressed eyeshadow singles in the shades Ballet, Electro, Pink Champagne, and Enchanted.
This purple eye look was created with Ballet and Electro all over the lid, Pink Champagne in the crease, and Enchanted in the outer eye corner. Custard (covered in Anastasia Eyeshadow Singles Review Part 1) was used on the brow bone. All eyeshadows were applied over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Also used was Tarte Maneater mascara.
This shade has a smooth almost creamy consistency that applied both evenly and smoothly. While the consistency was like other Anastasia shadows, I found the pigmentation to be a little more sheer, possibly due to it being a lighter shade. There was some fallout during application that was especially evident over my lashes but no fallout after application. Over primer, this shade lasted me about 10 hours.
A little more sheer, but easy to apply and blend
Anastasia Electro is a duochrome pressed eyeshadow that sells for $12USD at Sephora and Ulta. Anastasia describes this shade as a “duochrome bright purple with lilac blue reflect.” I didn’t really see the duochrome effect, but the color was a definite bright purple.
This shade had a little firmer consistency than some of the other Anastasia shadows. Because of the firmer consistency, there was less kick-up in the pan and a little less fallout. The shadow applied evenly and smoothly and was fairly pigmented, although not quite as pigmented as other Anastasia shadows. Over primer, this shadow lasted me about 10 hours.
A little more sheer, but easy to apply with minimal fallout
Anastasia Pink Champane is a metallic pressed eyeshadow that sells for $12USD at Sephora and Ulta. Anastasia describes this shade as a “titanium pinky beige shimmer.” I would call this color a shimmery, light rose gold.
Like Ballet, this shadow has a smooth almost creamy consistency (it is somewhat similar to the consistency of Coloured Raine foiled eyeshadows). The shadow applied smoothly and evenly with good pigmentation — I was able to get opaque coverage with one layer. There was some fallout during application, particularly on my lashes, but there was no fallout after application. Over primer, this shadow lasted me about 11 hours.
Some fallout, but smooth and blendable application
Anastasia Enchanted is a shimmery pressed eyeshadow that sells for $12USD at Sephora and Ulta. Anastasia describes this shade as a “shimmery royal purple.” I found the color to be a very shimmery blue-toned purple.
This shadow had a creamy consistency that made it easy to apply evenly. There was a lot of shimmer, so this shadow may benefit from a glitter primer, although I still had success over regular primer. I did not encounter too much fallout and was able to blend the shade easily. Over primer, this shadow lasted me about 12 hours.
Very creamy, pigmented color with little fallout and easy blending
