Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette - Swatches & First Impressions | KMC Beauty


I was super excited to receive the ABH Self-Made palette in the post, it's my first palette purchase from the company, prior to this I have only ever tried their brow products.
At first glance, the packaging is sturdy, sleek and elegant looking. With it's magnetic closure, large mirror inside and included brush it would seem you get plenty for your money.



When swatching the majority of the shades were a dream on the skin, pigmented and buttery. But there was a few for me personally that weren't all that they seemed when I swatched them, bare in mind this is a first impression not an in depth review I have not yet tested them to their full extent!
For me personally 'Buttery' is a pointless shade in this palette, against my skin tone it doesn't show up a lot, it was a little chalky when swatching, maybe I would get away with using this as an all over lid shade prior to applying my other shadows? I don't know. You may be able to notice the patchiness in the above photo in the colours 'Hot Chocolate' and 'Spirit Rock' these two shades in particular I found were difficult to work with when I swatched them with my fingers but they may apply differently with a brush. 'Spirit Rock' also had large pink chunks of glitter in it but these just sort of fell away when swatching they are a lot more noticeable in the pan.
Overall I am pleased with my purchase, I think it's an affordable palette for the quality of shadows and I look forward to trying it out some more. I think 'Pink Champagne' could be making an appearance at Christmas!
