The New ABH Sultry palette was released on September 25th and it is absolutely beautiful! The Sultry palette is probably my favourite of all the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes. It’s a limited edition for the holidays, but hopefully, Anastasia Beverly Hills will change their mind about that and keep it going. The palette has a beautiful mix of matte and metallic finishes in mostly neutral colours! In case you don’t know, I’m all about that neutral and nude makeup:) And check out that packaging! It has the same vibe as all the other Anastasia Beverly Hill palettes, only in a different colour. I love how all the palettes work together!
ABH Sultry is a cool-toned eyeshadow palette and perfect for those who love smokey eyes. The colours are simply breathtaking. My initial reaction when I saw the palette was that it reminds me of the Naked 2 palette. However, a much better version for a number of reasons. Don’t get the wrong idea, I love the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, however, next to Sultry, well…it pales in comparison.
Firstly the square shape of the eyeshadows is so much more practical than the Urban Decay trademark rectangle. Another reason is that the colours of the Sultry palette are much more alive and richer than the UD Naked 2. When you put the 2 palettes next to each other, the Sultry makes the Urban Decay 2 look drab and missing some life.
The palette comes with 14 shades. There are 7 matte shades and 7 metallics. The palette has twelve new shades and 2 recycled ones. They are all neutral colours with the exception of Bloom which is a pinkish/red colour.
What I found rather remarkable is how pigmented the colours are, yet still super easy to blend with little fallout. Usually, when colours are highly pigmented they are usually harder to blend, especially matte colours. However, not in this case. Anastasia Beverly Hills has got the balance just right which is something a lot of palettes haven’t yet managed!
This palette is perfect for a day look and a night look. It has the perfect combination of colours and lots of glitters to give you that dazzle. It’s easy to use and basically perfect in every way! My biggest problem with the palette is choosing which colours to use for my makeup look, simply because, I want to use them all!
Is Sultry worth the hype?
The answer is, a big resounding YES! The ABH Sultry palette is worth every penny. Obviously, you need to know what colours suit you, and if you suit a cool-toned palette. If cool-toned palettes are your thing, then you will love this palette! The colours are highly pigmented, so easy to blend and the colour selection is simply beautiful.
The palette, in general, is very high quality which is something I have come to expect from Anastasia Beverly Hills. They certainly know how to do things!
I love this palette and I’m sure you will too, from the colour choice to the quality it won’t let you down!
