Makeup & Muses: She Wears It Well

She Wears It Well by Anastasia of Beverly Hills is debuting Fall 2012 and features a look that is a mix of classic Hollywood glamor and modern moxie.

The eye shadow palette is a great collaboration between the 1930s golden age girl and the modern day 21st Century it girl.

The palette features nine matte and shimmer eye shadows that are highly pigmented. You can choose to wear the shadows dry or wear them wet (what I opted for) if you want a more intensified look.

All nine shades are long lasting, and the matte shades have a smooth finish that is crease free. The shimmer shades are said to be clinically proven to firm, hydrate and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

The palette also includes a deluxe mirrored compact and a dual brush.

So let's check out my makeup and muses look with this palette!

Wearing: ♥ SWIW Onyx shadow ♥ SWIW Frosting shadow ♥ SWIW Foxy shadow ♥ L'oreal creme cafe foundation ♥ Lumiere fresh roses blush ♥ e.l.f. super glossy lip shine ♥ Dior Diorshow mascara
The nine pigment-rich colors are: Trophy, Glow, Latte, Foxy, Sunset, Frosting, Almond, Onyx and Toffee.

At first, I wasn't sure certain colors would show well on my skin tone, but once you apply the shadows wet, they really do show up quite well (even better in person than on camera).

My favorite shades were Foxy ~ because of the shimmer; Frosting ~ because of the snow-like brightness; and Onxy ~ because of the deep richness.
Much like the See and Be Seen & Lash Genius makeup kit that I received from Anastasia of Beverly Hills, the She Wears It Well palette includes some added fun with five face chart cards.

The charts came with tips on how to get the most use out of the palette. I based my look on the "Night Owl" face chart for a knockout smokey eye.

The other charts are "Eyes and Dolls ~ Anytime Eyes" "Cut a Rug ~ Classic Cut Crease" "Speakeasy ~ Nighttime Ombre Eye" and "Cat's Meow ~ Perfect Cat Eye".

The She Wears it Well eye shadow palette retails for $34 and can be found at Sephora or

What do you think of the Anastasia of Beverly Hills She Wears It Well eye shadow palette?


  1. Looks wonderful and the shades look great. I like that I can actually see the eyeshadow on you as often colours look dark enough for a darker skin tone, but once you put them on, they fade in the background, but I can see it!! Looks great. Have a super weekend x

  2. I like the shades featured on this lovely palette, it looks like something I could use everyday rather than just upon special nights out. The grey hues look so elegant on you
