Makeup Wars: Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia palette review + tutorial

| August 27, 2014 | 26 Comments

This is a very special Makeup Wars because a few of us gals were so graciously sent the Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia palette to review. I haven’t been keeping up with the awesome things that Ana has goin’ on and uh…talk about a mistake. This palette has reignited the admiration that I have for the brand.

Designed by blogger and makeup artist Maya Janeska. This East African beauty is not only stunning but puts out amaziiiiing tutorials and has a jumpin’ Instagram channel. She collaborated with Anastasia Beverly Hills to put together a fantastic palette.

It really is unlike any eyeshadow palette that I’ve seen before because within the 10 shadows, you’ve got two pops of color – including that very bright Aqua!

What a nice little surprise, right? I’ve found that the Aqua works very nicely on the lid and even used as a liner on the waterline. Included with the palette are 5 Get The Look cards . Maya has given us step-by-step instructions on how to achieve various looks. Of course I fell in love with the look that used that stunning Aqua. I’m lovin’ how the cards tell you at the top which shadows you’ll be using.

Swatch-wise, I would have loved for these to be more intense.

They pop well on my skin but if we could have taken the intensity level up a bit more, I would have been a happy girl. And then there’s a nice dual-sided brush!

But despite that, this palette inspired me to do a tutorial which, ohmigosh y’all…I haven’t done in years! It is such a challenge to do a tutorial under 5 minutes. My girl Phyrra has perfected this so until I grill how she does her tutorials, you lovely people will have to deal with my choppy tutorials. And bad brows. Because yeah. My brows look baaaad in that video. Oh well. :cool:

You can get this palette from for an easy $29.

    I think you are right…that they could have taken the pigmentation up a notch to make it work across all skin shades. It is a really pretty palette so it would be great if it worked for everyone

  12. It’s too bad that you didn’t like the texture of the aqua, because it looks great on you – all these warm shades really do. That deep brown is sooo pretty. Keep doing tutorials and videos.. it’s the only way I get to see you these days!
