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