Norvina Vol 4 Palette Review

The mastermind behind Anastasia Beverly Hills' releases - Norvina has been creating her own collection to the evergrowing empire of ABH Cosmetics products and out of the 4 released 'Pro Pigment' eyeshadow palettes, I just had to have Volume 4 which has a noticeably pink and purple theme which is right up my street. Now, this luxury pigment palette retails for a hefty *gulp* £68 - so is it worth the price tag? Let's take a look...


As soon as I had this palette in my hands after purchasing it via BeautyBay, I noticed right away how luxurious it feels - it's got quite a bit of weight to it, a strong magnetic closure and a high-quality mirror on the side. The palette contains 25 shades with creamy mattes, metallic shimmers and even two pressed glitters which I was a little sceptical of as myself and pressed glitters have a very well - love-hate relationship. 

When swatching the shades which are below, I noticed just how creamy and pigmented the matte shades were; the only shadow I had to layer a few times was D2 which is the bright yellow shade which didn't actually surprise me as I find yellow to be one of those colours that you have to build up. I ended up using this yellow shade within the look I created and I loved it when applied to the eye on top of a tacky base or using it to blend out a different colour - in this case, a bright pink to create a gorgeous sunset blend.

The pressed glitters really impressed me which besides the obvious gorgeous colour selection, is what has completely sold me on this palette. Pressed glitters are that formula I've not ever been a massive fan of, as I find they crease easily and you have to use lots of products to get the desired glittery effect that you're after. Anastasia's Norvina pro pigment palette formula of the pressed glitters, however, is just stunning and you'll be able to see in the last swatch photo below just how stunning and smooth they are - unreal.

Thanks to my handy calculator, I've worked out that each shadow would be £2.72 each which in hindsight, considering the impeccable quality of the shadows really isn't too bad at all. I think hearing that a new palette launch is £68 seems so daunting as you can get decent eyeshadow palettes for £20 or under nowadays and I can safely say I'm an enabler for this pricey palette as if you're a makeup junkie like myself or want to get creative - I'd highly recommend adding this to your collection. I'm now after adding the Volume 3 pro pigment palette to my collection which has some stunning orange tones.

You can get this stunning palette from BeautyBay here (be quick it sells out quickly!)
