‘Tis the season for gifting others as well as ourselves, and I’m sure glad I took the leap and recently purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette is a collaboration with makeup artist Tamanna Roashan, who is best known on Instagram as Dress Your Face. She has a large following and creates gorgeous, dramatic eye makeup looks. I have been wanting this 10-pan eyeshadow palette filled with sumptuous, warm colors ever since it was first released a few months ago. Armed with a generous coupon code, I splurged and I’m sure glad I did.
Anastasia Soare of Anastasia Beverly Hills has been building her brand beyond her focus on eyebrows and the results have been fantastic. I commend the brand for reaching out and working with makeup artists to create a series of eyeshadow palettes with a moderate price point. The shadows in this palette work out to being around $3 each, which is a great deal altogether.
The packaging is sturdy cardboard and includes a generous mirror, a dual-ended shadow brush, and inserts with complete tutorials for 5 different eyeshadow looks.
What I really like about the Tamanna palette is that it’s versatile. The possibilities are rich with colors that can be used to create looks from natural to smoky. Four of these shadows (Fresh, Bengal, Chocolate, and Noir) are matte, the rest are shimmery.
The shadows are all highly pigmented and I will admit to being surprised – I had the assumption I’d have to deal with at least a couple that were overly powdery, but not so! I love the way these colors work together and can’t quite pick a favorite, but I’m really loving Bengal as a crease shade. It’s a perfect brown with a hint of orange.

My one knock against the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette is that it’s nearly impossible to keep open and I need to lay something on the mirror side in order to keep it flat and not closed. A minor problem, but definitely an annoyance!
My Final Thoughts: Offering 10 richly pigmented eyeshadow colors, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette is a new favorite and definitely worth the indulgence.
