Pigmented. Such great colours. So in love!
Some of you maybe asking “who is Mario and why does he have a palette?”
First here’s some history. ABH (Anastasia Beverly Hills) is one of the most well known makeup brands. Owner and namesake Anastasia, is famous for creating the red carpet ‘brows of Hollywood’s finest. The brand was first and foremost reputed for the quality of their eyebrow products, but has now further expanded its prominence with its cream contour palette, liquid lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, glow kits, makeup brushes, and now their multi-ethnic shades of foundations. Most of their products are well worth the purchasing, and highly pigmented, which means it’s good quality.
They paired up with Mario Dedivanovic, an amazing makeup artist to many well known celebrities. Mainly? Fashion icon and beauty influencer, Kim Kardashian. No wonder her makeup always slays, she has Mario at her side! He’s also done makeup for Gabrielle Union, Priyanka Chopra, and many others including other Kardashian family members. His skill is unparalleled, as everyone earnestly tries to copy what he does. While we may give credit to Kardashian fame and persona for influencing the beauty industry, he is clearly the brains and skill behind the art everyone is mimicking these days. As the saying goes: imitation is the best form of flattery.
So check out his palette. Absolutely stunning colours:
- HOLLYWOOD: a golden peachy shimmer
- NYC: a shimmery brown
- KIM: a bronze gold
- MUSE: a burgundy shimmer
- MARINA: a pink shimmer
- CLAUDIA: blue/black with sparkles
- LULA: matte tan
- ISABEL: matte red clay
- VIOLETA: matte chocolate brown
- 5TH AVE: true golden shimmer
- BRONX: army green shimmer
- PARIS: tan shimmer
These are amazing colours, especially for the upcoming holiday season. I love doing my eyes with these colours! However, it’s not as pigmented as some of the other palettes available, and there are only 3 mattes colours, so if you don’t like shimmer, this could be a problem. However, most of these colours are absolutely stunning, and glittery shimmer can always be used. I personally love KIM, BRONX, and NYC.
If you’re interested in this palette, I suggest you purchase it soon as it’s a limited edition piece. Either purchase it online with ABH or at Sephora before it’s gone forever. I love mine to pieces and can’t wait to see what great use comes out of this palette.
