Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Beverly Hills recently released their latest 12-eyeshadow palette, Shadow Couture | World Traveler palette. While the palette isn’t all that new, I still wanted to do an in-depth look at the palette after having used it for a few weeks. IMG_0279

A limited-edition, fashion-forward eye shadow kit with 12 intense shades. 

This limited-edition, fashion-forward eye shadow kit is the ultimate makeup artist’s palette. Featuring 12 shades, ranging from a neutral peach to a vibrant blue in matte, satin, and metallic finishes, they deliver smooth, intense color for an endless array of customized eye looks. They are formulated to be applied wet or dry, 

Shades included:

  • Metallic
  • Soft Peach
  • Morocco (deep burnt orange with ultra-matte finish)
  • Azure (vibrant blue with a metallic finish)
  • Intense Gaze (bronzed pink with satin finish)
  • Bellini (golden peach with satin finish)
  • Spoiled (gold-flecked peach with metallic finish)
  • Fudge (rich chocolate brown with ultra-matte finish)
  • Chic (taupe gray with shimmer finish)
  • Noir (deep carbon black with ultra-matte finish)
  • Heirloom (pinkish eggplant with sparkle finish) 
  • Pink Champagne


Here’s a closer look at the shades in the palette. The majority of the colors are warm-toned, with a few cool toned colors sprinkled in. The palette includes a double-ended brush, one side is a tapered blending brush, the other side is a fluffy shadow brush. The colors soft peach, morocco, fudge and noir are matte shades. The colors heirloom, bellini, spoiled, azure and intense gaze are shimmery/metallic shades. Lastly, pink champagne, chic and metallic are glittery shades. There are a couple of repeat shades from previous palettes. The shade morocco was in the Amrezy palette and noir was in the Tamanna palette. IMG_0277

I did a full first impressions video on this palette so be sure to check that out.

Here’s a closer look at the swatches, left group is the top row, right group is the bottom row. IMG_0275


Not surprising, the shade soft peach disappears into my skin. The most impressive colors to me were bellini, intense gaze and metallic. I really like bellini because it’s really rare to find a peach color that actually shows up on my skin. Intense gaze showed up much more pigmented than I expected and it’s exciting because I don’t own any color like it. Metallic is a really user friendly gold color. It’s super pigmented but would compliment various skin-tones and could be worn whenever, not just Christmas and New Years. The biggest disappointments were spoiled and azure. Spoiled was unnecessary, it was just a pinker, lighter version of bellini, making it a waste of a pan. Azure was not at all as pigmented as it should have been. In the pan it looks like a vibrant, bold blue. On the skin it just loses the vibrancy and becomes a wash of color.

I really enjoy this palette and have been using it quite often. My favorite shade combination right now is soft peach, morocco, intense gaze and fudge.

This palette is limited edition but is still available for purchase at Sephora and Ulta for $30. I think it’s an excellent value, as all the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes are, so it’s definitely worth getting.

    I really liked the color spoiled 🙂 I this the whole palette is so cute

  • August 23, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    I bought this palette immediately for Intense Gaze and Morroco. I have to say my instinct was right Morocco and Intense Gaze are my favorites of this palette, although Pink Champagne was a pleasant surprise.

    • August 27, 2015 at 9:19 pm

      Intense Gaze is so phenomenal. I can’t get enough of it!

    I would have to say ‘Heirloom’ is my favorite shade from this palette, but ‘Pink Champagne’ is a close second.

  • August 23, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    Morocco was the shade that made me want that palette after it had been in I think the Amrezy palette, but I’m not into most of the shades in this palette, so I passed. I hope I like the next Anastasia palette, I’ve always wanted to try her eye shadows!

  • August 23, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    I was so excited to see pink champagne in this palette! I have been wanting that shadow for a while but it was always sold out. Definitely bought this palette for that shadow.

    I love metallic and pink champagne! I don’t own any gold shadows so if I were to buy the palette it would be for that one colour. Pink champagne is so so pretty and feminine, in my opinion 🙂

  • August 23, 2015 at 9:22 pm

    Bellini for work, heirloom for a fun girls night out or a bold date night look!

  • August 23, 2015 at 9:29 pm

  • August 23, 2015 at 10:29 pm

    My favorites are definetly moracco and fudge!! I think the overall palette is really nice and at an okay price!! That metallic one is so pretty but I’m not sure what other colors besides like noir would go with it??!!

    Bellini is awesome! But I think Pink Champagne takes the win for all out favorite! Great review 🙂

    I love the pink champagne! I am fair skinned, so it would show up much better on me than on your skin. I like a little shimmer in my eyeshadow. Chic and spoiled are also very pretty. Thanks for showing us these colors.

  • August 24, 2015 at 12:55 am

    I really like that azure color and the metallic!!! Thanks so much for the in depth look at this!!!

  • August 24, 2015 at 3:27 am

    Saw your YouTube video on this palette and I really want it now. Intense gaze is my favourite shade.

    Spoiled is gorgeous! I don’t have any Anastasia palettes, might give this one a try.

    Ive been MIA the last couple weeks! My husband packed up and moved 18 hours away. Finally have some time to catch up.

    My fav colour from the palette is pink champagne! So glittery and gorgeous and I feel like you could pull it off both day and night! It could also be put with so many other shades and still look beautiful, but especially Morocco because it is such a versatile colour! 🙂 Great post Alina!

  • August 24, 2015 at 9:09 am

    I love this palette especially the morocco colour as it will make the other gorgeous shades more wearable I think. I like it when I can use just the palette when doing my eyes without having to bring in any other shades so this is important.
