Anastasia She Wears It Well Eye Shadow Palette for Fall 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review
Anastasia She Wears It Well is a new eye shadow palette this fall that was inspired by classic old-school Hollywood style.
She Wears It Well features nine shimmer and matte eye shadows, and a dual-ended small applicator.
It also has some really cute and helpful large card inserts showing you a fancy lady on one side and how to get a look on the other. See my update below.
The looks on these card include “Eyes and Dolls” for anytime eyes, “Cat’s Meow” for the perfect cat eye, “Cut a Rug” for a classic cut crease, “Night Owl” for smokey eyes and “Speakeasy” for a nighttime ombre eye.
Trophy, Glow, Foxy, Latte, Sunset (over primer)
These shimmery shadows are in a word: amazing. They are very soft to the touch and incredibly pigmented.
Trophy is a light taupe shade.
Glow is an intense bronze/gold shade.
Foxy is an intense copper/brown.
Latte is a light nude/peach.
Sunset is a peachy gold.
Frosting, Onyx, Toffee, Almond (over primer)
Three of these shades are mattes and I got really excellent coverage and pigmentation from most of them.
Frosting is a very light pink shimmer.
Onyx is a deep black matte. Very even and nice coverage.
Toffee is a medium brown matte. Again no patchiness, great coverage.
Almond is a very light nude matte. This one wee a wee bit chalky.
Overall: Great palette. I really love that the shadows are highly pigmented and almost all of them feel super soft and blendable. Only one of them (Almond) was a little off. The shimmery shades, especially Glow and Foxy, are utterly gorgeous. I also love the whole retro Hollywood theme with this palette, and the insert cards are cute and really helpful in creating different looks. UPDATE: I just found out that these cards do not come with the palette, they were sent to me for PR purposes. So sorry for any confusion!
