I had been going back and forth for a while… Do I get the Maya Mia Palette or the Tamanna Palette? I already had the Anastasia Lavish Palette, and felt so-so about it, so I wasn’t really in a rush. I went to Ulta last Friday, because I was in the state of mind that I deserved a treat. (I feel this way every 6 hours or so.)
I was just leisurely walking around the aisles of the higher end cosmetics in the store when I spotted a few of the Tamanna @dressyourface Palettes at the Anastasia display. It was almost calling out to me, and for $29, I said, why not? I have been following Tamanna since her MySpace days, when she was a popular makeup artist out of Fremont, CA. I have always admired her style, and I am also from the Bay Area, so I am happy to support her!
I got it home, and played around with it a little, and it is steps beyond the Lavish Palette! The shades are gorgeous, and the formula is soft and velvety. None of the shades are chalky, and there’s not a lot of fallout when applying. The Tamanna Palette comes with ten shadows, a double sided brush, and five “Get the Look” tutorial cards. Purchasing this palette has absolutely convinced me to get the Maya Mia Palette because these Anastasia eyeshadows are so high quality, without the high cost.
This is a look I created today following one of the the step by step Get The Look tutorial cards. I have a feeling the Tamanna Palette will be a palette that I reach for over and over.
Do you have any Anastasia palettes? Do you like her collaborations?
