Mario Dedivanovic aka "Kim Kardashian's Makeup Artist" aka MakeupbyMario on Instagram, recently did a collaboration with Anastasia Beverly Hills & came out with a LIMITED EDITION eye shadow palette. The Master Palette By Mario was launched and released on anastasiabeverlyhills.com on September 29, 2016. It later launched at Sephora, Ulta & Macy's.
According to wwd.com, 50,000 units of palettes promptly sold out after it launched on the ABH website. That's crazy! I am so happy I got my hands on one.
I've been following Mario on his makeup artistry journey for some time now and really admire & look up to his work. Although he's known for most of the Kardashian's glam, he does have a list of other celebrities he's worked on, for example: Jennifer Lopez, Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, Eva Longoria & Gabrielle Union (just to name a few). Mario definitely knows how to accentuate the natural beauty of his clients.
I feel like its been forever, but I remember like it was yesterday when Mario first made his announcement via social media on his collab with Anastasia Beverly Hills. I follow him and Norvina (President, Creative Director of ABH and daughter of Anastasia Soare) on social media & they both have been very vocal about this collab. It's so exciting that the official launch has finally arrived.
If you follow Anastasia Beverly Hills, then you know that the company has been really on top of their makeup game & has launched quite a few successful palettes. I already knew that whatever Mario and the ABH team came up with, this palette was going to be a hit. The waiting game was torture but the end results were totally worth the wait!
The Master Palette by Mario
Here is what the palette contains:
- 12 x 0.02 oz/ 0.5 mL Eye shadows in Hollywood (metallic wheat gold with a satin finish), NYC (rich chocolate brown with a satin finish), Kim (tan with a satin finish), Muse (rose gold with a satin finish), Marina (champagne with a metallic finish), Claudia (slate with a velvet finish), Lula (soft taupe with an ultra-matte finish), Isabel (burnt orange with an ultra-matte finish), Violeta (dark chocolate with an ultra-matte finish), 5th Ave (gold leaf with a metallic finish), Bronx (metallic olive with a satin finish), Paris (gilded brown with a satin finish)
The swatches I did were swiped once over hydrated skin (no primer). See photo below. The photo was taken under natural light & without flash. The color payoff is definitely buildable and all colors look beautifully creamy. The shadows were buttery/silky to the touch. I barely touched the product with my brush & it picked up more than enough shadow pigment. You honestly don't have to dig your brush into this palette to grab a lot of color.
If I had to pick my 5 top colors, I would pick: Kim, Muse, Marina, Isabel & Violeta.
Whether you're a makeup artist, makeup junkie or someone who just wears makeup on special occasion, this is definitely a palette you should invest in. It retails for $45, which IMO, is a reasonable price for good quality makeup. The palette comes with 12 shades, a dual eye shadow brush & a mirror. The colors are definitely wearable for daily and evening use. My first thought when I saw the palette was, this would be perfect for all my bridal work! I gravitate towards sultry, neutrals tones when working on my brides & this palette offers just that.
If you're contemplating on getting this palette - don't sleep on it, it's limited edition & won't be coming back!
