Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette Review and Looks.

I so meant to get to this post up Tuesday but life happened once again so we’re playing catch up this weekend. Anyways, today I have a review of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette. I have had this little guy for a while and have been playing with it, getting a feel of the shadows and shades. I have also done a few looks I will share at the end as well as a tutorial coming up tomorrow or Sunday.

I read this palette is the baby of Norvina Soare who is the daughter of Anatasia herself and is president of ABH. She designed the palette to be her go-to’s. I believe Soft Glam was intended for her mom.

This is one of those palettes that when I saw it, I actually got excited. It gives me the warm and fuzzies just looking at her. It’s visually, a stunning palette and color story.

The quality is exactly what you would expect from ABH. No questions there. It performs beautifully. They do kick up in the palette but that is how ABH eyeshadows are. No problem really. The shades are very pigmented and easy to work with as well.

The mattes are smooth and super blendable. They are effortless. The metallics and shimmers need to no help from a sticky base or wet brush. They go on with minimal effort and give full impact. I will get into the details on each shade soon.

I mean, look at that color story. I haven’t seen anything quite like this in a while. It’s got cool tones and warmers tones with a purple and pink twist.

The Shades

Okay, let’s break down the shades and talk finishes and performance.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Base
Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette – Base

First up is the shade called Base which is a light cream with a subtle satin finish but is essentially a matte. I feel like this shade as a slight luminosity to it so it doesn’t come off chalky as sometimes light cream mattes can. Base is described as a matte eggshell.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Soul

Soul is described as a matte wisteria. That is a perfect shade description. I find Soul to be an odd shade you don’t see very often. I haven’t used it but once because it’s not really a shade I am drawn too. BUT, I love that it is different. Its quality is great, it’s pigmented and smooth. I really look forward to spring to do some cool looks with it. I have ideas, just I’m in the mood for fall-winter looks at the moment.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Incense

Next is Incense. I love love love this shade. This is just one of those perfect matte camel browns that I live for. Incense is described as a matte dusty terracotta.

Love is a matte mid-tone cool pink.  I love this shade as a transition. It can pull warm or cool depending which shades you pair it with.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Volatile
Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette – Volatile

Volatile speaks to my soul. It’s a matte warm charcoal. It’s such a unique take on a grey toned shade with the hint of warmth.  It makes it very wearable. I would also say it’s a deep taupe or almost mauve.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Eccentric

Eccentric is similar to Incense but is warmer. Described as a dark burnt orange matte.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Passion

My favorite matte, Passion. A matte deep garnet. I can’t not use this shade in a look. It’s so pretty. it’s deep without being so deep that it’s overwhelming. It’s perfect for some soft depth.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Drama

Drama is a unique shade. Described as duo chrome aubergine with a cool bronze shift. It also has multicolored micro glitters or sparkles throughout which gives a gorgeous twist. Sadly they are lost on camera.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Dazzling

Next is Dazzling. A cool-tone bronze with a violet shift which is also really unique and gives what could be a boring bronze something special. It’s foiled and hella metallic. No need for a wet brush or sticky base.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Celestial

Celestial is a vibrant fun pop of purple. Not the most unique but it has it’s placed in the palette and I enjoy a good purple. Described as a duo chrome plum with a violet shift. It’s one of those purple to blue shifting shades.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Rose Gold

By far my favorite metallic. Rose gold is a dead-on rose gold with a foiled finish. ABH calls this a metallic rosewood.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Wild Child

Wildchild is a shade I thought I would hate but wrong I was. Described as a duo chrome frosty pink with a magenta shift.  I have used my share of cool toned frosty pinks and they usually come off kind of shitty and just tacky but this one, however, is the most flattering frosty pink I have ever come across.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Summer

Summer is a foiled golden topaz which is a great way to describe it and the name is perfect as well. It screams summer to me. It’s a beautiful soft gold that I have great plans for.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette - Dreamer

And lastly, we have dreamer. Described as a metallic pink champagne. It’s a great inner corner highlight type of shade. However, this shade burns my eyes so bad. I don’t know why but I can barely use it. That being said, it’s pretty. Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette

Of course, you get duo ended brush. I actually really enjoy these brushes and use them when my go-to’s are dirty. They are great for travel as well.

The blending end works but isn’t the softest.

The packer brush end though is fantastic.

The Looks

Now onto some of the looks, I have done with this palette. I am trying to create a variety of looks and I have ideas for more which I will be sharing. This first look is a preview of the tutorial I will be sharing tomorrow.  I don’t feel like I have gotten a ton of variety from the palette yet.

  1. Aaaah Anna, you are SO gifted. Your looks actually made me want to buy the palette although I’ve never took a liking to it.

    When are you going to start a youtube channel?

    1. I was the opposite with the palette. Feel in love then got it and had no idea what to do with it! It’s actually a great everyday palette and really easy to work with. Most the looks I have created have been very wearable nice looks.
      LMAO! I just went on a tear about how I don’t wanna do youtube. OMG! NEVER! LOL! I don’t wanna edit videos mostly. Youtube is such a mess too. It stresses me out thinking about dealing with the technical side of things. Meh, I’m old and set in my ways. LOL.
