Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette

After Christmas came in like a wrecking ball and hit my bank account, I told myself I would stop spending money on things I didn’t need. I turned a blind eye to advertisements and sales, but I knew there was only a matter of time before I gave in to the advances of my favorite companies. I had no idea the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette was coming out, then I started seeing it everywhere – YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, everywhere. Supposedly, the palette won’t be available at Macy’s, Dillard’s, and other stores for weeks. I like to try the products out at the store before I make my purchase, but I couldn’t hold out, and just like that, my little spending hiatus was over.

The first 8 shades from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette

Here are my thoughts on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette:


  • 18 lip colors for $48 and free shipping
  • The quality – my lips didn’t feel dry, the shades are very pigmented
  • The brush/spatula and mixing plate – I’m ready to get creative
  • The shades are matte


  • I wish the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette would’ve included a mirror (hopefully vol. 2 will have one)
  • The primary colors could use a bit more product, I’ll probably be using them more to mix colors
  • Too many nude toned shades

Overall, I really like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette. I think it’s well worth the money. Do I think these lip colors are the greatest of all time? No, and I will continue to buy from other companies, but I like the idea of this palette and what it allows you to do. I look forward to more of these palettes, hopefully not too soon though; I need time to recuperate financially.

  1. this palette is so surprising! i don’t own it, and i have no interest in buying it (just not my thing) but i’m really impressed with the quality. i don’t usually expect much from lip palettes, but the pigmentation alone seems really incredible to me. i’m dying over that blue, and the white is surprisingly nice. awesome review!

  2. I agree with the part about the nudes. I am going to attempt to rock all of them, even if I have to wear a liner. But it seems like you are slaying it in all the shades! What did you think about the yellow, I have heard mixed reviews on that shade in particular.

    1. Thanks for the compliment!!! ☺ I could not get the yellow to show up, it was the most disappointing color in the palette. I expected the white to act the same way but it surprised me.


    1. Girl, yes! I’ve seen a lot of reviews, but only a few by women of color. I haven’t really played around with this palette as much as I want to, but I can’t wait to see what I come up with. I would definitely recommend it! ♥
