When I first heard about the Anastasia Norvina palette, I knew I had to get my hands on it. For the past several seasons, warm toned shadows have been all the rage. However, I just can’t handle another warm toned palette. After waiting on pins and needles, I finally had the chance to try the Norvina palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills.
Lately I have really come to love ABH shadows. Their formula, texture, and color payouts are amazing and closely resemble that of my beloved MAC shadows. The more pigmented or glittery shades can have a bit of fallout, but nothing that a trusty makeup wipe can’t handle.
Norvina’s packaging is a lavender hued sister to the other Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes. It has the same sleek semi-suede outer, and the logo embossed in white and rose gold. Between the lavender and rose gold, the packaging is so on trend. With my current lavender obsession in full swing, I’m all in already.
One of my favorite things about the Anastasia Norvina palette is that includes the neutral shades of Dreamer and Base. Lately, the palettes I’ve seen need to be supplemented with a few neutral shades in order to create a basic or daytime look. And when a palette contains 14 different eyeshadows, I shouldn’t have to add more to build a look! With seven metallic shades and seven matte shades, you’re sure to be able to create whatever look you’ve got in mind. From office to date night to girls night, Norvina’s got you covered.

In the past, ABH palettes haven’t had an equal mix of mattes and metallics. However, Claudia Soare (ABH President, and the namesake/creator of the Anastasia Norvina palette), has said she wanted a good mix of mattes and metallics that embodied all of her favorite hues.

I really love this palette and I am excited to have it as a part of my collection. The variety of both colors and textures is fantastic. Plus, I love the sheer number of combinations and looks I can create. Overall, the Anastasia Norvina palette does not disappoint!
