Anastasia x Norvina Vol 3. Mini Pressed Pigment Palette Review & Swatches

Norvina Mini Vol. 3

Anastasia Norvina Mini Vol. 3 Norvina Mini Pro Pigment Palette ($29.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features two shimmer shades, one glitter shade, and six matte shades. The palette was a mixed bag with a couple failures with more mildly disappointing shades and a few that were actually good/easy enough to work with.

The glitter shade does include plastic glitter, though the palette only had a warning for the Pressed Pigments (B1, B3, C1, C3) as “not intended for use around the immediate eye area.” I have found that the brand’s Pressed Glitter formula is one of the worst on the market when it comes to the more self-adhesive based formulations that have been released in the last couple of years.

A1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3)

A1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3) is an iridescent pink with a lavender shift paired with a pearl finish. The texture was more emollient, thin, and difficult to pick up with a brush or a fingertip (the powder adhered very strongly to my fingertip and didn’t want to transfer off easily). It was described as “sheer,” which it definitely was. There were signs of fading after seven hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.06 oz. – $200.00 Per Ounce

Anastasia Eyeshadow is supposed to be a “finely-milled, highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadow. There are several different finishes, and the performance can be better or worse depending on the finish, though it also ranges from shade to shade. On average, the formula is semi-opaque to opaque, lightly dusty to buttery, wears seven to nine hours, and is fairly blendable. The Metallic and Titanium finishes seem to be the best-performing to me, but there are some really standout mattes and shimmers as well. I have not tried the sparkle, satin, or velvet finishes as extensively as the other finishes, personally.

A2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3)

A2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3) contained multi-colored, smaller glitter particles suspended in a clear base. It wasn’t described as sheer, though I think it should have been given it had an inclination to sheer out when applied due to having a poorer base. For anyone concerned about fallout, I would wear this with an adhesive base for sure; there was a lot of fallout/migration of this shade, and even just applying it, the product easily wanted to be moved elsewhere.

It does contain plastic glitter, though it did not come with a warning (whereas some of the Pressed Pigment shades did have one).

Ingredients

POLYBUTYLENE TEREPHTHALATE, MINERAL OIL/PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM/HUILE MINERALE, POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE, POLYBUTENE, HYDROGENATED STYRENE/ISOPRENE COPOLYMER, DECYLENE GLYCOL, ACRYLATES COPOLYMER, HYDRATED SILICA, TALC, PHENOXYETHANOL, ALUMINUM POWDER (CI 77000), RED 40 (CI 16035)

NOTICE: All products categorized under “Glitter” contain Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as plastic or PET glitter, and it is typically cosmetic grade glitter. Inclusion of this ingredient sometimes carries a warning (in the US) that the product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” This ingredient has not been approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. In recent years, some brands are including this product in their eyeshadows without any warning or callout and effectively marketing them as eyeshadows or including a symbol of an “eye” which suggests eye usage. Via CosIng for EU, PET glitter is permitted without any restrictions or limitations. For an in-depth look at whether cosmetic grade glitter is safe, please view this post.

A3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3)

A3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3) is a muted, medium-dark blue-teal over a blackened base paired with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling finish. The consistency was denser, more textured to the touch, and it needed to be applied with a firm, synthetic brush to pick up product evenly. It had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, but the thicker texture made it hard to apply against the mattes in the palette as it created an uneven surface overall. The color stayed on well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

B2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3)

B2 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3) is a light, sky blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage, which did not build up well (even over primer). The consistency was thin, powdery, and prone to sheering out and had moderate fallout during application. It applied unevenly and showed signs of fading after six hours of wear.

B3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3)

B3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of micro-sparkle over a matte finish. The micro-sparkle resulted in light fallout during application and random sparkles that diffused with less precision, so it added sparkle to areas I would have wanted to keep more matte. It had rich color payoff that lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

C1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3)

C1 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer, but it did not play well with other shades and was more prone to lifting away color underneath. The texture was slightly drier and thinner compared to some of the other mattes in the palette. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours and left a very faint stain behind.

C3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 3) is a vivid, deeper coral-red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that was true-to-pan and blended out easily. The texture wasn’t too firmly nor too softly pressed in the pan, so it picked up well but wasn’t prone to fallout. It stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading a bit, and there was a very faint reddish tinge to my skin after removal.
