Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette

Today I have the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism palette to share with you.  I purchased it from the ABH website and it arrived a few days later.  The swatches online had me excited about this palette because they seem to look good on every skin tone. 

Here's the palette alone.  There are an equal number of mattes and glitter/shimmers.  I'm not sure why they positioned them in the palette scattered, instead of putting glitters in one row and mattes in the second row. 

The first row is my least favorite. The white glitter is somewhat sheer and I can't imagine when I would use the bright neon yellow.  The purple glitter (osiris) is also on the sheer side.  My favs from this row are eden (peach) and obsidian (black). Holly bat man, this black is pigmented. 

Names left to right: lucid, eden, unity, sphinx, osiris, sphere and obsidian. 

The second row is my favorite from the palette.  Dimension (grey/purple) is a gorgeous shimmer and I can imaging a glamourous smokey eye with it.  Pyramid and eternal are very wearable shimmers since the colors are in the neutral family.  Throne is a gorgeous green and I choose it for this look.  

Names from left to right: dimension, parallel, pyramid, throne, saturn, eternal and lupe

I like this palette but I was a bit deflated after swatching the first row and having difficulty picking up some of the colors.  The shadows that I used for the above look applied and blended very easily (unity, eden, throne and obsidian).  The mattes feel soft and buttery.  The shimmer/glitters are nice but the white and purple will require some work to build up (if you don't use a colored base)

  This is a predominantly a neutral palette with a few pops of color thrown in for interest: green, purple and neon yellow.  I would equate this palette to the Subculture palette as far as style and value.  

The Prism palette is available on Anastasia Beverly Hills and Sephora.
