Despite the freakishly warm weather recently, summer is in fact, still a long way away *sobs*. But luckily, the good people at Anastasia Beverly Hills have got us even more excited for summer with the launch of their newest eyeshadow palette – the Riviera; it’s literally summer in a box. We’re suddenly feeling the urge to book a holiday…
The newest addition to the ABH family is the boldest yet with a pretty bright shade range, and although it might look scary at first glance there are actually quite a few great neutrals in both warm and cool tones in the palette. Its versatility was demonstrated by ABH on Instagram in a video showing models sporting some killer eyeshadow looks that we can’t wait to recreate.
Inside you’ll find 14 highly pigmented shadows and pressed pigments and, of course, the classic ABH dual-ended brush. The palette is inspired by paradise and the shade names reflect that perfectly. There are eight matte shades inside – ‘Sails’ a bright white, ‘Estate’ a pastel peach, ‘Cabana’ a soft mustard, ‘Coastline’ a deeper peach, ‘Cannes’ a bright violet pressed pigment, ‘Bahamas’ a hot pink pressed pigment and ‘Palm’ a deep brown pressed pigment. And of course, the palette has four jewel-toned metallic shades – ‘Palermo’ a bright pink, ‘Inheritance’ a true gold, ‘Mediterranean’ a sky blue and ‘Seychelles’ a bright turquoise. Plus, this palette has the first two duo chrome shadows from the brand – ‘Yacht’ a mauve taupe with a violet duo chrome and ‘Seaside’ a silver with a blue duo chrome. Phew.
The Rivera palette will set you back £46 and be available from 4 March on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website or online and in-store at Selfridges from 7 March. Apologies in advance to our bank balance.
