I HATE Palettes
I’ve never got along with them, always been left disappointed, the shades you want to use aren’t pigmented enough, some don’t work with my skin tone and some you just question ‘Why are you even in this palette?’. I moved on by purchasing individual shades, slightly more expensive but it worked for me as I was able to choose which shades I wanted in my very own palette. Then came along Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance palette, a palette I could not put down. She did an amazing job putting these colors together and they worked so well on myself and on clients. Even the hot pink shade ‘Love Letter’ worked beautifully on the lash-line on one of my brown eyed clients.

Master Palette by Mario
Whether you like Kim Kardashian or not, her makeup is on fleek! (Yes it’s heavy duty make up). I say this because she is a brown eyed girl with long black lashes, full brows and that’s the profile of many of us out here. Mario has worked with Kim for many years, he has worked on many fashion and beauty campaigns and also faces we see in the media today. Oh, and also, his work is planted everywhere on the Instagram feed, so why would you not want his eyeshadows??!
The shades are just as I expected, buttery, pigmented and blend-able. 12 eyeshadows in warm, earthy, natural tones which range from mid-tone to warmer shades. You won’t find many light colors or a brow bone shade (depending on your skin tone) but I find the shades pack on well after the excess is tapped off as these are more velvety, soft and powdery shadows. Apply wet or dry or if you’re super cool like me use INGLOT Duraline which turns any eye shadow in to a stronger pigment or eyeliner.
Where to Buy:
Sephora (International shipping available)

But I only like 1 or 2 shades?
You may not be in to the whole palette thing, or don’t have access to this palette in your country or you just want 1 to 3 shades. I got you covered boo…
