Welcome back! The Master Palette by Mario just came out a few days ago and I was able to get it online at Anastasiabeverlyhills.com before it sold out. I wanted to do a post to tell you my thoughts and show you some swatches. It’s currently available online at Sephora, Macy’s, and Ulta. It should be sold in stores very soon. You can purchase it for $45.
This is my very first Anastasia palette so I was very excited to try it. The packaging is very simple and practical, yet elegant. The eyeshadows are very creamy and buttery. There is only one shade that is not very pigmented and that is Hollywood. It is the very first swatch on the left and you can barely see it on my skin tone. I absolutely LOVE all of the matte shadows. The colors are just perfect. My favorites so far are Isabel, Violeta, Bronx, and NYC. The only bad thing I have to say about the formula is that it does have a lot of fall out. I noticed it especially when I used Bronx. I would just be careful when using. If you are using the darker colors, then I would do foundation and concealer last. The palette is also a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be.
I purchased this palette because I am a huge fan of Mario and I wanted to be a supporter. It’s a very beautiful palette. I would say it definitely reflects Mario and his style of work. Would I have purchased this if it weren’t a collaboration with Mario? Probably not to be honest. I think all of the neutral shades can be found in other palettes I have like the UD Naked. Claudia, Bronx, and Muse are probably the only shades I don’t have in my collection. If you love Mario and his work then I would definitely recommend purchasing. Especially if you do not have shades like the ones included. It’s a great all over neutral palette with the perfect shades to give you a pop of color.
Thanks for reading!
