Hi All! I’m excited to be reviewing the new Norvina palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. This palette was created by Anastasia’s daughter Norvina.
“I have always wanted to create a palette that embodies my spirit. I’m a dreamer at heart and get lost in my own fantasy world daily. It’s a whimsical place that leaves you feeling carefree. If I had to explain how these colors made me feel, I would say “happy”.” – Norvina
I was so excited when I first saw this palette! Purple is my favorite color and I thought it was so gorgeous! I have a few ABH palettes, and I noticed that this one has more glitters — which I love!
The packaging of this is the soft velvet of all of the ABH palettes. It’s pretty, but does get dirty really fast.
The inside has a large mirror and comes with a double-ended brush that is good quality.
- Dreamer (metallic pink champagne)
- Base (matte eggshell)
- Summer (metallic foiled golden topaz)
- Soul (matte wisteria)
- Wild Child (duo-chrome frosty pink w/ a magenta shift)
- Incense (matte dusty terracotta)
- Rose Gold (metallic rosewood)
- Love (matte mid-tone cool pink)
- Celestial (duo-chrome plum w/ a violet shift)
- Volatile (matte warm charcoal)
- Dazzling (duo-chrome cool-tone bronze w/ a violet shift)
- Eccentric (matte dark burnt orange)
- Drama (duo-chrome aubergine w/ a cool bronze shift)
- Passion (matte deep garnet)
Here are swatches:
These are the metallics and shimmers — Dreamer, Summer, Wild Child, Rose Gold, Celestial and Drama. They are all gorgeous. Wild Child is the hardest one to work with because it’s really sheer, I had to build it up in the photo. Drama is more of a matte with glitter.
Here are the mattes — Base, Soul, Incense, Love, Volatile, Eccentric and Passion. You can’t really see it in the photo, but Base, Soul and Love all have a little shimmer in them. I still use them in my crease and on my lid, but they are a bit shimmery. The other mattes are pigmented and a little powdery like normal Anastasia mattes.
There is kick up in the pan on most of the shadows in this palette. But all of the Anastasia palettes I have do this, so I’m just careful while applying.
So I have been using this for about a week, and honestly am still deciding how much I like it. It isn’t as bright and fun as I had hoped, but it is a really pretty neutral palette with a few pops of purple. And I have created natural glam and smokey eye looks using it.
I will keep playing with it and I think it will transition nicely into the fall months.
Have you picked up the ABH Norvina palette? What do you think?
