I told myself I wasn’t going to buy the Master Palette by Mario eyeshadow palette. “You already have too much makeup,” I told myself. “You hardly wear eyeshadow anyways,” I said. But then I saw swatches. And a tutorial (or three). And the next thing I knew, I was on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website clicking “Add To Cart.”
What can I say? The flesh is weak. But, damn this eyeshadow palette is pretty! The colors are totally fall appropriate, but they are neutrals in a mix of mattes and shimmers, so they’ll work year-round. Plus the pigmentation is great and they’re silky smooth. No regrets here. Not a one.
As soon as I opened the Master Palette by Mario, I knew I had to film a first impressions video. This is a limited edition product that’s only available at Anastasia Beverly Hills’ website now, but I wanted to give you all my thoughts right away. It will be available at Sephora soon, so hopefully this video will convince you that you need it!
For this makeup look, I kept things pretty simple. As you can see in the photos, I’m pretty casual. I blame it on the Bay, but I’m pretty much always wearing jeans and a sweater or sweatshirt (*kanye shrug*).
I have the video showing up top, but in case you’re having trouble, here’s a link to the video.
I also have some swatches of the Master Palette by Mario:
And here’s another shot.
Here’s a closer look:
As I mentioned in the video, these shadows are a tad powdery. I was a little nervous that they’d be messy on the lids, but they applied smoothly and adhered well. I tried these without a primer, and they lasted well for about 6 hours with no creasing.
