The Amrezy palette is the first Anastasia BH product I have ever owned; and I am not at all disappointed. It is a truly flawless, sleek product & also really affordable for a palette, I was quite surprised by the price.
A bit of background to start with, Amrezy (Amra Olevic) is an Instagram MUA, who is super talented and gorgeous; so if you have IG I recommend checking her out, because you can recreate the looks with the palette from her pictures. The palette itself is made up of ten colours, with eight of them being neutral in tone with two pops of colour in there, which I think is a great touch. The colours are as follows:
. Legend- This is a pale champagne beige shade, with a gold shimmer running through it, perfect for an all over the lid colour or as a highlight
. Glisten- A gorgeous classic warm bronze shade, with quite an orange base to it, as well as flashes of gold & silver shimmer
. Topaz- Another bronze shade, except this one is medium brown on the base so its deeper than Glisten. Also far less frosty, it has more of a sheen than anything else
. Iridescent Purple- One of my favourite shades of the palette, this is a beautiful electric purple, with a light lavender flash when it hits certain light
. Emerald- This shade is fairly self explanatory, its a beautiful emerald green with a subtle sheen, its not so green that you couldn't incorporate it into an everyday look, which I like, as it works well with the neutrals in the palette
. Vanilla- a white based pearlescent shade, it has a very subtle pink & silver shimmer running through it, its basically another highlight or all over the lid shade, but minus the gold champagne you find in Legend
.Caramel- The first matte shade you find in the palette, this is a light caramel brown shade, very warm in tone, perfect for blending into the crease and creating definition
. Morocco- This a fairly unusual shade, its like a really light burgundy, its very red based and is close to the brown family but it isn't brown, if that makes any sense!
. Deep Plum- This is a rich plum brown, its ideal for deepening the outer v and smoking everything out
. LBD- Last, but by no means least, I love the cute name for this shade, but it is not the stand out shade of palette. It is your simple, back to basics matte black that you find in almost every palette. It has got a little bit of a grey undertone in there, so it is not what I would call a true matte black for those who crave that, but its still a decent black
Overall, I don't really have any major favourite shades because I find all of them really amazing, multi purpose and you can create looks with just these shades in the palette, or you can use them with some of your other favourite shadows. I think I probably get the least use out of Emerald and LBD, mainly because I don't often reach for green and LBD is a black, and I have better blacks in my collection to use.
The packaging of this palette really calls to me, which is terrible, because nine times out of ten I'm suckered into buying stuff purely because it has pretty packaging. It is a leopard print design with gold and red thrown in there, plus a magnetic closing clasp.
I think this would make a really great starter palette for anyone who is just branching into make up, because you've got a great selection of neutrals, two highlights and two pops of colour for when you are feeling more adventurous. Well worth a recommend and repurchase!
