The Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette is undeniably one of the most talked about makeup products in 2018. So, when it became available in the UAE, I happily shelled out AED 242 to get my hands on this gem from @boutiqaat. Being a Dubai Makeup Artist, I felt that it is essential for me to have the latest, high quality products for my clients. But even if you are not a professional, I truly believe that this versatile, hardworking palette is a makeup must-have every girl in Dubai should own. I listed down 5 reasons why.
- You’ll get 14 gorgeous shades in one palette
Yes, you heard me right! 14 shades! There are 9 ultra-matte shades and 5 metallic/shimmery shades included. While it is not cheap, I feel that you’re getting your money’s worth with this one. At first look, a makeup connoisseur may easily dismiss this palette as just another neutral collection but once you start using the different shades, you’ll be amazed at how each color is independently different yet can easily be blended with the other shades in the palette.
Are the shades revolutionary? No? Have you seen these shades before? Probably. Should you still buy the palette? Absolutely!
- The formula is super pigmented and long-wearing
One of the things I love most about Soft Glam is the formula. The shadows are velvety smooth, so pigmented yet blendable, and also long-wearing. You don’t have to worry about your eye makeup disappearing at the end of the night because it will definitely stay on.
3. You can use it every single day
Looking at the shades, I feel that ABH really focused on wearability this time. The shades will easily complement any skin tone because there are no crazy colors. You can wear these shades to the office, during Friday brunch, when you travel for Eid break or on a night out at the Dubai Marina. I think that this palette is also perfect even for makeup beginners.
- You can go from soft to glam in an instant
Believe it or not, ABH president Claudia Shore even said that she created this palette with wedding makeup artists in mind. The combination of mattes, metallic shades and shimmers makes it perfect for special occasions. That is one of the reasons I bought this palette. As a professional makeup artist, I want my Dubai brides to have only the best!
- Its multi-purpose
Unlike other palettes that just focus on trendy colors, this palette has essential mattes like Noir (ultra-matte black) and Tempera (ultra-matte beige) which you can also use to line your eyes. The shimmery shades Glistening, Fairy and Bronze are highlighter substitutes that work amazingly.
