Anastasia Beverly Hills World Traveler Eyeshadow Palette Swatches!

Hi everybody! I decided to swatch another Anastasia Beverly Hills palette today! This one was released in 2015 and was $30. There are twelve shadows included in it. Five shades are on their permanent line so if you don’t have many eyeshadows by them, this would be a good start. I like the design of this palette and then when I show you all the swatches, we’ll discuss the shades and textures.

Here is the front of the palette. It has a very nice design.
Here’s the back of the palette. It has an ingredient list of every shade, the cruelty-free bunny, a serial number and a tiny blurb about the collection.
Here’s the inside of the palette. You can see that this one is almost the same layout as the Self Made Palette. There is a bunch of neutrals with pops of shimmery color. There is a mirror and a dual-sided brush.

Up next are the swatches. I did them by row since there were only six shades in each row. 

Here is the first row of shades. Soft Peach is a very matte light peach shade. It is hard to see and a bit powdery. Morocco is a brick red matte shade the swatches worked out pretty well but this was powdery as well. Heirloom is a very dark purple with pink and purple sparkle in it. This was hard to swatch on the brush as it is also very powdery and loses a lot of the pigmentation. Bellini is a pretty golden peach shimmer shade. I like to use this one with darker colors or by itself. Pink Champagne was also in the Self Made Palette. This pretty grayish pink shimmer is nice for an eyelid shade. Chic is a sparkle shade that honestly is more sparkle than pigment which makes me sad.
Here is the second row. The colors are a bit bolder and more pigmented on this row. Spoiled is a peachy light brown shade that is very firm compared to the buttery shades in this palette. It shows up better than Soft Peach. Fudge is a dark brown with red tones in it. This color performed well on both swatch techniques and didn’t give as much trouble as the other mattes in this palette. Azure is a navy blue that has a metallic look to it. I wish it swatched better with the brush but it didn’t perform too badly. Intense Gaze is my favorite shade in this palette. It is a metallic coral shade that swatched well and is very pigmented. Metallic is a very nice metallic gold that is made bolder with a yellow hue in it. It swatched very nicely. Noir is a matte black that is almost perfect with texture (not powdery, very pigmented) until you attempt to blend it out.

I wish I could have liked this palette more. I didn’t hate it, I don’t love it, it’s just a between meh. The mattes could have performed better. I loved the metallic shades. I’m not going to lie to you and pretend to like products that I had difficulty swatching or using. You deserve the honest truth.
