Anastasia of Beverly Hills: She Wears It Well Face Chart Cards

Happy Saturday and Happy September!!! :)

A couple of weeks ago, I reviewed the She Wears It Well eye shadow palette from Anastasia of Beverly Hills for you guys... I mentioned that the palette came with exclusive promotional face charts and I promised to share those with you guys on a separate post... and that's exactly what this post is all about! ;)

Nine shades: Trophy/ Glow/ Latte/ Foxy/ Sunset/ Frosting/ Onyx/ Almond/ Toffee

These face charts are not available at retail, but they are so helpful and so amazing that I'd hate for you guys not to see them. Luckily, Anastasia of Beverly Hills gave me the go-ahead to share these with you guys -- they would love for these face charts to reach as many people as possible! :)


"Color and shading are key, and my palette was designed with both matte and shimmering neutral tones to be able to create anything from a classic matte cat eye to a simple, modern wash of shimmering color for everyday... no matter where or when a girl is from, She Wears It Well." -- Anastasia

1. Onyx: Night Owl -- A Knockout Smokey Eye


2. Frosting: Cat's Meow -- The Perfect Cat Eye


3. Almond: Cut A Rug -- A Classic Cut Crease


4. Foxy: Speakeasy -- A Nighttime Ombre Eye


5. Sunset: Eyes And Dolls -- Anytime Eyes


Cool, right?!
I love how these face charts offer tips on how to get the most out of the She Wears It Well palette. :)

My sisters and I had a blast trying the different looks -- the steps were simple and easy to follow... but of course, it takes practice to master putting on eye makeup.

My favorite looks are Night Owl and Cat's Meow
My sister's favorite is Speakeasy, while my other sister's are Cut A Rug and Eyes And Dolls.

Three different tastes and styles = one eye shadow palette. ;)


I like all nine shades, but my favorites are Foxy, Onyx, and Frosting.

Foxy -- I just really love the color. It's so rich and so beautiful!
Onyx -- I love how versatile it is, I seem to always need it for different looks.
Frosting -- It's subtle, light, and pretty... perfect for every day!


Price: $34
Available at Sephora and www.anastasia.net.

What do you guys think?
Which of these 5 looks are you most likely to try?

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!! :D

  26. I am really impressed! With just these 9 colours, you can create 5 distinct looks, and the price point is amazing. Only $34? This is something we'd easily pay $49+ from Urban Decay and Stila. So glad I stopped by and discovered your blog. I am looking for some new fall make-up ideas too! Hope you'll visit and wold you like to follow each other?
