Hey doll hey! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I was doing pretty darn good but I took a spill in my garage and now I’m is a word of hurt. Before that though I received a small purchase I placed with Anastasia Beverly Hills so I figured I’d haul and swatch it for you….
I finally purchased the Jackie Aina palette!!!
Let’s take a closer look shall we?
*As always… All products listed we purchased for me, all links provided are purely for convenience purposes to help you find the product quickly and are in no way affiliate links. The swatches are done on clean bare skin with no primer and are done in 1 swipe and with flash to maximize color payoff *
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lip Stick ($18 for 0.12 oz / 3.5 g of product on their website) in the shade Dead Roses (rosy lilac) is billed as a full-pigment lip color with a velvety-smooth ultra-matte finish and comfortable wearability. This formula comes in 12 shades.
First Impressions: I already had this shade in a mini that came as a free gift with a birthday gift that I received so it’s not really a first impression… This lip stick is beautiful and perfect for the fall time. It’s creamy when it goes on and, although it’s matte, it didn’t feel tight or drying at all. It doesn’t travel outside the lip line, doesn’t feather and is long wearing.
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss ($16 for 0.16 oz / 4.5 g of product on their website) in the shade Parfait (coral with a rose gold reflect – metallic) is billed as a full-pigment, weightless lip color formula that delivers the intensity of a lip stain and the shine of a lip gloss. This formula comes in 24 shades.
First Impressions: This color is stunning!!! I love coral, if you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time this is not a new concept, but to have coral and rose gold all in 1 shade… perfection!!! This formula isn’t sticky, is hydrating and longwearing. It doesn’t travel outside the lip line and doesn’t feather either.
3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Highlighter ($34 for 0.28 oz / 8 g of product on their website) in the shade Dripped in Gold (glistening gold with a diamond reflect) is billed as a shimmering, ultra-smooth cream highlighter for instant light and luminosity in just one swipe. The weightless formula melts effortlessly into to a second-skin seamless feel for the perfect glow every time.
First Impressions: The formula of this highlighter is perfect! It goes on creamy and sets into a second skin sort of feel. I’m just bummed that I chose a shade that I don’t think I’m going to be able to pull off. I may have to purchase the shade lighter than this one.
4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Jackie Aina Palette ($45, on sale for $31.50 for 0.28 oz / 9.8 g of total product making it 0.02 oz / 0.7 g of product and $3.21 at retail price / $2.25 at sale price per shade on their website) is billed as a limited-edition palette created in collaboration with influencer Jackie Aina, featuring Jackie’s must-have eyeshadow and pressed pigment shades for straight-up gorgeous looks. There are 8 metallics, 3 pressed pigment mattes and 3 standard mattes.
The shades from left to right are: Soleil (Metallic soft peach with a gold shift) Supreme (Matte rosy pink pressed pigment)* Pinker (Matte mid-tone cool plum pressed pigment)* Big wig (Matte rich purple pressed pigment)* Dwollahs (Metallic golden olive) Credit (Deep matte plum brown) Lituation (Metallic deep taupe with a violet shift) Zamn (Sparkling rose gold) Wiggalese (Metallic cranberry red) Shookington (Metallic violet with a blue shift) Trust Issues (Sparkling white gold) Edges (Matte deep peach) Sponsored (Metallic chocolate with a teal shift) and Ginger (Matte caramel brown).
First Impressions: I absolutely love Jacki Aina… she is funny and talented and has an amazing spirit. I had passed over this palette because I never used the other 2 ABH palettes that I owned. Once I decluttered those 2 palettes I kept itching to purchase the Jackie palette…. I held off as long as I could but with it being on sale I just had to have… and the color story is just pure heaven, perfect for the fall time. The formula is the same ABH formula we all have come to love, the mattes buttery, the metallics dreamy and super pigmented. I can’t wait to be able to play with this palette.
The haul, swatches and first impressions for this purchase has come to the end….
Tomorrow I am going to Ulta, I have $50 in reward points and I have got to get my hands on that the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss ($16 for 0.16 fl oz / 4.73 mL of product at Ulta) in St. Tropez (iridescent rose gold) and I think I’ll pick up the full sized Tarte Shape Tape Glow Wand ($27 for 0.2 fl oz / 5.91 mL of product at Ulta) in A Light (Opal Glow).
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night 🌞🌜and that you are in great spirits and health 😄🩺.
