Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette First Look & Swatches
I feel really bad that the ABH palettes always seem to get leaked, I don't know how that keeps happening but nevertheless this is a new release I am pretty excited about and am sure is going to be a big hit with everybody. The brand new Soft Glam Palette delivers exactly that, a neutral lover's dream but also an incredibly versatile and great complementary palette. We all need good transition shades and inner corner highlights, a matte black to accompany almost all of our eye looks so this is a palette that has a place in everybody's collection. Created to be just that, a palette with all your everyday staple shades in one place but also with brides and "soft glam" looks in mind, there is something extraordinarily simple and easy about this palette that I appreciate. Scroll for swatches.

New Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette & Swatches
Norvina announced this palette officially on her Instagram and the annotated pictures of swatches are screenshots I took from her Story, apologies for the quality. The palette comprises 14 shades like all ABH palettes and 7 are new (Glistening, Rose Pine, Sultry, Bronze, Mulberry, Fairy and Rustic), 3 are present in the Modern Renaissance Palette (£43) (Tempera, Burnt Orange and Cyprus Umber) and Orange Soda, Dusty Rose, Burnt Orange, Sienna and Noir are all available as single eyeshadows. Norvina (her real name is Claudia) did say she had more campaign work to show in late February so I anticipate a March release. I guess it will be £43, interesting because I am sure the Modern Renaissance Palette used to be £41, did they hike the price up by £2? *rolls eyes*

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette & Swatches
Personally, I think the palette looks really nice and I would love to own it, whether I buy it or not all just depends on my funds at the time of release. I do already own a lot of neutral shadows so I can't say with full certainty that I will buy it. Also, lately, I haven't been wearing much eyeshadow at all which is quite unlike me, I have been resorting to smudging bronzer on my eyelids instead. It doesn;t help that I have a cold yet again, pretty sure 80% of the time I have spent in London has been me being ill. One of the reasons Noir was included in the palette was because of the soft cat eye bridal looks Norvina is a fan of. She credits many muas as being the inspiration for this bridal colour story, including one of my all time favourite makeup artists, @makeupbylilit who has a YouTube channel. Below you can see one of her signature bridal looks on a client of hers. 

Thank you so much for reading, I am sorry to do another "first look" post so soon, but this launch was too good to not comment on. I really like ABH shadows and the pigmentation and texture look borderline edible for this palette. One of my favourite things about ABH palettes are the names and the cohesiveness of their palettes which I felt were really evident in Modern Renaissance with the the title, shade names and colours. With this palette I feel like they could have thought of a better name but it is what it is called, I guess, and a lot of the shades are existing so that explains the names not being as cohesive. Nevertheless, an exciting launch for me. I would love to know what your thoughts are regarding this palette in the comments below. I don't understand why the ABH palettes always seem to get leaked, it seems really unfair and unnecessary, what does anyone gain out of doing that? I will have a review post up for you guys shortly, I have accumulated so much drugstore makeup and skincare over the past few months that I am a bit stuck on what to review first to be honest. First world problems. Come back soon for reviews and more. Take care.

  4. I love all the shade of this pallete, but isn't 43 pounds a bit much? Great post, I really enjoyed the swatches! Have a lovely day :)

  5. Ooooh that looks gorgeous! I might try to get my hands on that one. Still haven't tried Modern Renaissance, but I do own Subculture and I love it (although there was a bit controversy around it!)

  11. It is a beautiful palette, but I don't know if I need it at the moment. I'll have to see it in person to decide! I also feel really bad that Anastasia never seems to get to launch products the way that they want to because of leaks :(

  12. I'm a huge fan of ABH palettes and have to admit this is far more up my street than the previous two releases, which whilst pretty were a bit too bold for my tastes.

  13. Can't wait for ABH to release this.

  14. Love those colours, what a gorgeous palette! It's going to be very popular, I'm sure :)

  15. This looks stunning palette! The shadows seem so me x


  16. I feel kinda unimpressed with this palette because it reminds me of the Urban Decay 3 (which I already have). I do love that bridal look though. I hope you have a wonderful day Kiran and I hope you feel better!

  17. This really does looks gorgeous Kiran, and I don't care if I already have these kinds of shades. If the formula is like MR then count me in! xx


  18. I definitely like that makeup look but not sure about pinks on me x

  19. I am a huge fan of the MR Palette, but this one, despite being pretty, looks too similar to others shadows I have in my collection.

  20. I will have to check this palette out in store but I really think I will like this one. I'm not a huge fan of ABH palettes.

  21. There is nothing special or ground breaking with the shades but I will definitely buy it as I love ABH eyeshadow formula. xx

  22. This is such a pretty palette, and great for nude looks but also good for night-time looks with the darker shades. The second row of eye shadows is my favourite, I like the warmer tones!

  25. Great palette...

  26. This is such a pretty palette and the mix of shades are true to its name! I don't have the MR palette so I'm definitely tempted to get this one!
