I finished up reviewing the brow products from Anastasia Beverly Hills, now I am moving on to their eye shadows :D 

ILLUMIN8 Eyeshadow Duos
Description: "ILLUMIN8 Eye Shadow Duos are unique clinically and consumer-tested shadows designed to illuminate, firm, and smooth the appearance of skin while also soothing, softening and hydrating. It’s makeup that works like skincare! Formulated with Anastasia’s exclusive Youthful Synergy™ Complex and Balkan Botanical® Infusion." 
Price: $23.00 USD
Pretty, reflective plastic packaging
There are 4 shades in all and the only one not pictured here is Power Lunch :)
At Chateau
My Bedford
On Set

I really like these duos! They are soft,  pigmented, blendable and have nice colors for everyday looks. My Bedford is my favorite of the three palettes. The colors coordinate so well together. Although I couldn't test the "Youthful Synergy™ Complex and Balkan Botanical® Infusion." Because I am a teenager and don't have wrinkles or areas that need to be tightened up. But as far as color, texture and performance they are very nice!

Would I repurchase? I might repurchase My Bedford :D

Illumin8 with Youthful Synergy Complex Eye Shadow Palette
Description: "Straight from the beauty innovator Anastasia Soare’s Illumin8 Eye Shadow Palette features her Youthful Synergy™ Complex. This complex is created from vitamins A, B, C, E and F, as well as naturally rich Brown Algae, Sea Whip and Macadamia. Shadows also feature Anastasia’s exclusive antioxidant-rich Balkan Botanical® Infusion that soothes, softens and hydrates skin. Formulated to help keep the eye area looking youthful and maintain elasticity, this palette is perfect for women of all ages."
Price: $30.00 USD

These shadows don't have individual names but overall I was really unimpressed with this palette. The first shadow dosn't eve show up, zero pigmentation. Same with the third shadow. The others are good but not my personal favoirte
 Milky Way
One of the better palettes. All the shadows coordinate with each other nicley and I really like the matte black with sparkles. The biggest disapointment is the purple shadow. No pigmentatio, rough and un-blendable. Can't work with it at all.
Cafe Americano 
Another good palette. I really like the green and the black. This palette is mostly matte shades. Although the first shade looks to have no pigmentation, it does as you can see on my eye below.
The first shade on my lid & as a highlight
The second & fourth in the crease
The last in the outer v
and the green on the lower lashline

Would I buy again? No. These palettes have very blah colors, and the are inconsistant is quality & texture. Wet n Wild produces better shadows than these for waaaaaaay less!

Next & last review will be of their lipglosses and face products :D

    Never really 'looked' the brand up, like, I knew it existed, but I didn't know where to put it, like, high-end, drugstore, etc.? The shades are pretty pigmented and so spring-like!

    Hi! I could have sworn I've visited this website
    before but after looking at many of the articles I realized it's new to me.
    Regardless, I'm definitely delighted I came across it and I'll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

    Howdy are using Wordpress for your site platform?
    I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get
    started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    It's in fact very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, therefore I just use internet for that reason, and get the most up-to-date news.
