Fall 2012: Anastasia She Wears It Well Eye Shadow Palette.

I have another nude (or natural or naked) palette that I am using, and I am loving it. It is from eyebrow guru Anastasia of Anastasia Beverly Hills. It is called She Wears It Well, and let me just say this. No matter what combination of shades you wear from this palette, you will be wearing it well.

In the palette are nine shades, a mixture of shimmer and matte shades. There are eight smaller shades, and one larger shades that will obviously get used the most. The colors are pigment rich, so a little bit is all you need. The formula is very long-wearing and designed to even be crease free.

The shades include:
Trophy
Glow
Latte
Foxy
Sunset (the larger shade)
Frosting
Almond
Onyx
Toffee



I have worn all of the shades, in a few different combinations. They are just so easy to mix and match. Sunset makes the perfect all-over base color shadow and Onyx is great as a very deep blue-black liner.

One of my favorite looks is this nighttime ombre look, using just two of the shades.  I start by applying Glow all over the lid up to the brow bone, with a fluffy shadow brush. Next, I apply Foxy to just the inside and outside corners of the eye, blending the color all the way up to the brow bone. I am careful to make sure the center is lighter with just the color Glow. I then blend with a big fluffy brush to soften up the hard line, but again, make sure the middle is the lightest.

Look for She Wears It Well at anastasia.net and Sephora for $34.00.

I just bought this and have started using it. The shadows are among the longest lasting I've ever tried.
I really like the Anastasia eye shadows and have the illumin8 for long wear and skin care benefits. These look really pretty.
Hi Marcia! Her shadows are super long lasting - I love them. I am really loving this palette too. I'm sure it will be on my vanity for a long time to come.
Tina - I love the quality of these shadows. The extra long wear and nourishment you get from wearing is a wonderful thing. You will love this palette, I'm sure. Let me know if you pick it up.
I am impressed, though I am currently on makeup hold because I just buy too many, especially eye shadows.
Love neutral eyeshadows, this seems perfect for me.

Ha, Sammie! I can relate. I often have to put myself on hold too.
