Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam was on my “Must Have” list as soon as I saw Norvina share pictures of it. It’s a softer version of Modern Renaissance and full of beautiful shades that are perfect for day to day and evening looks.
After using this palette nonstop the last couple weeks, I can say it is my favorite ABH palette to date. It’s full of shades that are right up my alley and the formula is as perfect as can be!
Like I mentioned above, Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam is a softer version of Modern Renaissance. It contains 7 brand new, never before seen shades and 7 shades we have seen in the past. 3 shades from this palette are found in Modern Renaissance – Tempera, Burnt Orange, and Cyprus Umber while some shades you may find familiar are ABH singles – Sienna, Orange Soda, and Noir.
Here are shade descriptions straight from ABHs’s website:
Tempera: Ultra-matte velvety beige
Glistening: Iridescent gold with a hint of pink reflect
Orange Soda: Ultra-matte pastel peach
Rose Pink: Rose gold with a soft pink iridescent hue
Sultry: A hybrid satin metallic finish warm chocolate brown
Bronze: Metallic gold bronze
Mulberry: Ultra-matte mulberry
Dusty Rose: Ultra-matte dusty lilac
Fairy: Multi-imensional light gold
Burnt Orange: Ultra-matte deep orange
Sienna: Ultra-matte earthy brown
Rustic: Ultra-matte deep cinnamon brown
Cyprus Umber: Ultra-matte dark coffee
Noir: Ultra-matte deep carbon black
This palette is currently available on Anastasia Beverly Hills website but will also be available at other retailers like Sephora and Ulta soon. Purchasing it off the ABH website does have its perks as they offer free shipping on orders $25+!
The cost is $42 which is the same to the past 3 palettes.
Packaging is similar to the other three as well with the velvet-ey (I’m horrible at guessing materials LOL) type cover, this time in a gorgeous mustard-ey shade. Like the other palettes, Soft Glam comes with a dual ended brush which I actually enjoy using, especially when I’m too lazy to wash my brushes LOL!
One of the biggest complaints I saw with this palette is the lack of 14 new shades. This personally did not bother me because the three shades from Modern Renaissance are shades I use often. As for the single pan shades – they’re all new to me so I’m happy to have the in a palette I will be using each day!
As for the palette in its entirety, I truly think it’s remarkable. The shade range screams my name and the formula is just as I expected it to be. I cannot think of a single shade that is a miss for me. Some of my favorite shades are Rose Pink, Sultry, Dusty Rose, Sienna, and Glistening.
One of the things I really love about this palette is that I didn’t have to rely on Fix Plus to get the most out of the shadows..they were intense enough on their own! Also, they blend like a DREAM. I’ve been able to create “day in the office” looks as well as “party time” looks with this palette. The biggest thing about Soft Glam is that I feel so COMFORTABLE and CONFIDENT wearing these shades. Especially Rose Pink. Rose Pink is everything!
