It’s been less than 5 days since Anastasia Beverly Hills came out with a teaser on Instagram of their new palette Norvina coming out with their President Claudia Soare, daughter of the CEO, Anastasia Soare.
Although this palette hasn’t come out yet to retail stores, beauty gurus like Jeffreestar,Amy Loves Makeup and Manny Mua went on Youtube to review this palette. All 3 had a different perspective on this palette, Jeffreestar in the other hand was in love with the palette and the suede material of it and how there wasn’t much fallout in these shadows unlike ABH‘s previous eyeshadow palette, Subculture, which had a lot of controversy.
“Okay I have to just swatch this right here on my hand, ooh girl. We’re talking like full coverage. That color literally looks like Norvina.”
Overall he was pretty impressed and he considered this palette Jeffreestar approved.
Amy Loves Makeup went on Youtube to talk about it and she wasn’t happy with their choice of shades and warm and cool tones as well, she wasn’t feeling the palette at all, stating that there are other makeup brands like Makeup Geek and ColourPop that have single shadows and could be used as dupes from the Norvina palette for a much cheaper price.
“Anastasia Beverly Hills revealed their Norvina palette and it was super super beautiful outside packaging purple soft velvet I was so here for it but then I saw the inside colors and I do like that it is something different.. I like the purples and the cool tones but I just felt like it was a little bit too safe and I really wish it was more a purple palette” she stated.
Manny Mua went on Youtube to review this palette and give his honest opinion on whether it was a hit or miss, after he swatched the shadows on his palm and creating an eye look he was pretty impressed with this palette even though it was very powdery and there was some fallout, there were also some shades that were hard to blend and you have to be very patient with them.
“The mattes feel incredible like they’re not too powdery but they are pigmented.” stated
Overall, this palette had some positive and negative reviews and yet people still don’t know if they’ll be purchasing this palette or not. There are people looking forward to this and how it may have the same formula as their first eyeshadow palette Modern Renaissance which was a holy grail when it came out back in 2016,
