It’s been a while I know- I was away on vacation and wanted to unplug for a while, BUT the beauty world never stops. Just yesterday the much anticipated Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette was released on the ABH website and FINALLY you can get it from Sephora here. After a few bold glam palettes (the Subculture and Prism), they’ve finally listened to the people and released a beautiful soft glam neutral toned palette.
The palette was released on anastasiabeverlyhills.com on Feb 14th. However, for those of you know don’t want to choke on the $18US international shipping fee (free for US residents), you can get the palette on March 6th online from Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s and Beautylish, and in stores March 10th. I’ll probably wait until then too because the palette itself is $42US, + $18US shipping = $60US = $75CAD yikes!

SOFT GLAM DETAILS
The Soft Glam Palette (pictured above) is in signature ABH packaging with 14 pans as usual including nine neutral mattes and five metallics. Anastasia has created a new everyday wearable palette that can create neutral looks as well as sultry, romantic looks. No wonder it was released on Valentine’s Day.
Seven of the shades are new and seven are previously released. I’m kind of on the fence about that. As an avid buyer of ABH products, it’s kind of annoying that if I purchase this I’ll have some shades I already own.
One thing I notice is the top metallic shades ‘Rose Pink’, ‘Sultry’ and ‘Bronze’, look similar to the pressed formula as seen in the Prism Palette. Those metallics in the Prism palette were actually pretty hard for me to work with and get colour payoff, so that’s something to consider. The shades look super pigmented on the finger swatches, but with a brush they took a lot of patience and didn’t have much payoff. I’m not saying the exact same thing will happen with this Soft Glam Palette, but it might.
What do you guys think of this palette? Excited for the dreamy neutral looks or is it just another recycled neutrals palette? Order yours here!
