Too Much of a Good Thing? Thoughts on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Collection Vol. 1-3

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know I love collecting makeup. Certain brands in particular, one of those being Anastasia Beverly Hills. Now I don’t have everything they have ever released, but I do have almost every eyeshadow palette since Modern Renaissance. Within the last two months they have released a lot of eyeshadow palette, almost to the rate of ColourPop releases (which I have cut myself off from) and honestly after this set from ABH I’m cutting myself off as well from their palettes so I can actually enjoy the ones that I’ve purchased. There are two others I’m going to get (Jeffree Star x Shane Dawson) and Tati’s palette if it is cruelty free then no eyeshadow palette purchases for the next six months.

Rainbow Splatter Skull | Vanessa Davis & James Charles Inspired Makeup Look

I was really inspired by this look James Charles and Vanessa Davis did for the “launch” of the Morphe x James Charles mini palette. Which is basically the same palette just smaller. I got the original palette when it launched, moved and had to part ways with it due to size, then regretted that and my sister repurchased it for me as a moving in present (my sister comes up with a million reasons to get me makeup, I generally don’t ask her to but if I mention a palette looks cool and I can’t afford it, suddenly she surprises me with it. She’s the best, I love her to death). However, I recently got the Norvina Collection Volumes 1-3 and decided to use those instead to create my own version of this look.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Palette Comparison & Ranking

I have the entire Anastasia Beverly Hills palette collection or at least of the main 14-pan palettes that typically come in the velvet packaging. So not including the Master palette by Mario, or any other limited edition palette they came out with. I just got into them within the last six months, I don’t know if I’m honestly going to be getting every single palette from them that they come out with. But I’m living for the formula so I just might since I really enjoy collecting makeup. Some people collect shoes, cars, handbags, or trading cards, I used to collect Pokemon cards but now I collect makeup. Mainly liquid lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes. All the rest I don’t.

3 Looks 1 Palette: Jackie Aina x Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette

Honestly, I wasn’t going to get this limited edition palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills as from the looks of it it’s a mixture of several palettes: Alyssa Edwards, Modern Renaissance, and Norvina. But since I got my sister the Riviera palette, she repaid me (her words, not mine) by getting me the Jackie Aina palette. But since I have the palette, I thought I would start out with doing a 3 looks 1 palette, and then update my rankings of the ABH palettes with my review once I’ve gotten more use out of this palette.

3 Looks 1 Palette: Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

Since I’ve moved I can finally get access to my makeup again as I packed it probably way sooner than I should’ve. Though it’s summer I was in the mood for more grungy makeup typically seen in fall. And since I have a series going of three look one palette, I thought I would revisit one of my favorites, Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. I’ve used this palette several times in the past for posts but I haven’t done one of these kinds of posts for it. So that’s exactly what we’re doing today.

3 Looks 1 Palette: Anastasia Beverly Hills Alyssa Edwards Palette

Sometimes you just have to get yourself something nice, and sometimes you get something to celebrate. This was a little bit of a mixture of both. I managed to get approved for an apartment I’ve been wanting to move into for the last year since the lease at the old place was finally over. But I had no funds to move back then as I was beyond broke, I couldn’t move then. So, I worked my butt off to make sure it would happen this year. And I get to move in the start of July. Which I cannot wait for. To celebrate I got myself the Anastasia Beverly Hills Alyssa Edwards palette, I’ll do a review of it later when I’ve played with it some more in my ranking the Anastasia Beverly Hills palette post.
