The Eyeshadow Palette comes with 9 Illumin8 Eyeshadows in a gorgeous selection of nude and purple shades in both matte and shimmer finishes. Just like the full-sized Illumin8 shadows, these applied smoothly with great color payoff and stayed on nicely for hours without creasing or fading.

The Liquid Liner comes with a long, thin brush that allows great precision. I loved the super intense black color but the staying power could be better. Even on my dry skin, the swatch smudged once I rubbed it and with just a bit of water, it faded completely.

Finally, the Mini Clear Brow Gel, which is 1/3 of Anastasia’s signature Brow Gel. It is enhanced with chamomile and did a great job setting my brows without making them stiff.

  1. I have this set as well and I absolutely love it! The eyshadows are lovely. I have been getting a lot of use out of them since I got the set. The shades are perfect for the fall/winter months :)
