You may have seen a tweet or two about my search for a new eyeshadow palette. Sometimes, I feel really uninspired and just need something new to try out.

Luckily, I went to Ulta's website to see what was new, and that's where I found the Anastasia Shadow Couture World Traveler Eyeshadow Palette

This is a palette with a wide range of colors and neutral shades and I love a versatile palette.
It also comes with a dual ended brush, which I typically ignore but this one is actually pretty nice.

As you can tell, the color variety is nice, and has a few neutrals thrown in as well. I can see a nice variation of looks from this palette. I'll post a picture of one that I actually filmed (my very first video!).

So, quick review:

I love the packaging. It's a black and gold cardboard palette, but it's sturdy enough for travel. It has a nice, large mirror.
The color variety is nice and you can do a full look with this palette. I do feel that it's missing a really light highlight shade, as soft peach is too deep for highlighting if you have a fair-light skin tone.
Some of the colors, such as Heirloom and Soft Peach are very powdery.
All of the colors are pigmented, Pink Champagne takes a bit more effort as it's very glittery and needs to be built up or applied over a base.
I didn't have trouble blending any of these colors, each one blended flawlessly, even Noir. 
The brush is actually nice.

Overall, I recommend it. It's my first Anastasia Beverly Hills purchase and yes I'm serious. I have never owned any of the brow products or palettes. But, that may change now as I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the eye shadows. 

You can find it at Ulta for $30, which is a steal.

Thanks for reading!
