Mario Dedivanovic is an amazing makeup artist, teacher, and influencer. You may know him from being Kim Kardashian’s go to makeup artist, but he has worked with numerous celebrities for all sorts of different projects. There’s something very unique about Dedivanovic’s artistry, his work is just impeccable. When Mario Dedivanovic announced he would be collaborating with Anastasia Beverly Hills and coming out with a limited edition eyeshadow palette, I was freaking out. This palette went on sale in October and I placed an order as fast as I could and waited ever so patiently. Thankfully, Sephora does not take long to deliver.
The “Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Master Palette by Mario” comes with 12 beautiful shades and a dual ended eyeshadow brush. I’ve had this palette for about 3-4 months and it is my holy grail, my favourite eyeshadow palette, and the palette I reach most for when doing my makeup. I wanted to test this palette out properly and use it as much as I could to write an honest review. These shadows are top quality, the texture is very velvety. Blendability of these shadows is top notch and there is a great selection of colours, a mixture of matte and shimmer shades. These shadows probably are one of the best blending in my collection and you can create numerous different looks, such a dramatic smokey eye to a neutral day look. Pigmentation, as you’ll see in the swatches, is amazing. The shades included will look good with any eye colour and skin tone; it is definitely a versatile palette.
I truly love this palette, and have not had a single problem with it. I did not expect any less from Mario Dedivanovic, his passion for makeup and his artistry speaks for itself. Although, I do wish this palette wasn’t limited edition because I know I will be hitting pan soon and will probably have to look for dupes. I personally have only used the brush once or twice; I tend not to use the applicators the product comes with. I found that there was nothing special with the dual ended brush and stuck with my trusted blending brushes. Also, this is a cruelty free product.
My favourite shades in this palette include, ‘Lula’, ‘Isabel’, ‘Bronx’, ‘Muse’, and ‘5th Ave’. Check out Mario Dedivanovic’s work on Instagram @makeupbymario.
