Anastasia Beverley Hills ‘Prism’ Eyeshadow Palette – review and swatches!

Hello my lovlies and happy new year! Today I bring you a review and swatches of the ‘Prism’ eyeshadow palette from ABH.

When this palette first dropped in the UK and I saw the shade selection I knew I just had to have it. The palette’s packaging is just so pretty, the gorgeous velvet-like casing with the gold detail is enough to draw anyone in, it’s velvety texture is similar to the casing on both of their previous eyeshadow palettes. This palette contains 14 shades in total, 7 matte shades and 7 metallic shades. The palette also comes with one classic ABH double ended eyeshadow brush, just like the previous palettes. Whilst swatching the palette I found the formulas, both matte and metallic, to be very pigmented with a silk-like feel. The only two shades which I found to be slightly less pigmented were ‘sphere’ and ‘obsidian’ which are two of the matte formulas. I found this slightly odd as usually if there is inconsistency in formulas they tend to be both either light or dark shades, whereas these two are a light yellow and a pitch black. Speaking of the shades, let’s get into the swatches!

left to right: lucid, eden, unity, dimension and parallel

‘lucid’ is a duo chrome colour which I’m in love with, it’s a white gold colour with pink reflects, perfect for that brow and inner corner highlight.

‘eden’ is a matte coral pink colour, it goes gorgeously in the crease for a cute pink smokey eye.

‘unity’ is a matte ochre shade, a twist on a classic nude colour as it’s just that bit more yellow toned.

‘dimension’ is another beautiful duo chrome shade that I can’t get enough of, it is a silver grey with pink reflects.

‘parallel’  is a matte brown truffle colour great for those who like a darker smokey eye without having to go as dark as black.

left to right: pyramid, throne, saturn and eternal

‘pyramid’ is a bright metallic yellow gold colour with subtle green reflects, perfect to put on the lid to add a bit of gold glamour.

‘throne’ is one of my favorite shades, it is a blackened green colour with multi-coloured relfects.

‘saturn’ is another matte shade, it is a beautiful terracotta nude perfect for tucking in the crease.

‘eternal’ is a gorgeous copper metallic shade with a hint of violet, I really like the warmth of this shade.

prism 8
left to right: sphinx, osiris, sphere, obsidian and lure

‘sphinx’ is a very warm metallic bronze shade that is very similar but slightly darker than eternal.

‘osiris’ is a stunning colour, it is a metallic violet colour with red reflects which I think is a very unique combination!

‘sphere’ is a matte electric green yellow colour, this is the one I struggled with when it came to swatching because of the pigmentation. However, when layered and the pigment becomes more opaque it is a gorgeous bright colour!

‘obsidian’ is the darkest shade in the palette, it is a deep matte black, perfect for those gorgeous smokey eyes.

‘lure’ is definitely my most used shade, it is a a soft matte lilac colour and I am in love with it. I find it goes so well with so many looks and I can’t get enough.

Hands down this palette is absolutely stunning. From the sleek packaging to the gorgeous array of shades, ABH have totally smashed this palette (with a little exception when it comes to the pigmentation on a couple of the shades). If you don’t own the prism palette I would definitely suggest adding it to your collection, the colours are very unique and is such a pretty palette. You can create so many individual looks with this palette and I for sure use it all the time..

Until next time loves!.. x
