Hello My Beautiful People! I hope you have been having a great weekend so far. I have caught up on all of my DVR’d shows, and have been enjoying college football all day. Go Dawgs! So I finally had a break to post this Anastasia Amrezy and Tamanna Palette Comparison.
ABH has released three limited edition eye shadow palettes pretty much back-to-back. I was on the fence about the Amrezy palette because I thought it was a little too cool toned for me, but was extremely fortunate enough to win mine from the lovely Tanya from Leopard Lace and Cheesecake for her blog anniversary giveaway. I had already planned to get the Tamanna palette as I thought it would be better suited for my complexion.
My photos do not do these gorgeous palettes justice. Really. I think the swatches that follow will be a truer representation of how beautiful these shades are. So hang with me!
The Amrezy palette was created in collaboration with the renown makeup artist Amra Olevic. Really beautiful mix of neutrals and colors.
Tamanna was also conceived in conjunction with a world famous blogger/makeup artist, Tamanna Roashan. These are stunning colors as well, with a mix of neutral/color.
I thought the best way to compare the two was to swatch the first row of each palette on my fingers, then do a collective arm swatch; same with the second row. I realized when editing the photos that I put my thumb in the first pan, pinky in the last, but when I turned my hand over to photograph, it is opposite of the order of the palette. Same with the arm swatch. I’m sure you will be able to get the gist of the colors, but please bear with me! I usually don’t realize this stuff until I edit. Just go from right to left on the swatches below. Again, I am happy with the swatches representing the colors rather than my pics of the palette.
Thumb to pinky: Legend, Glisten, Topaz, Iridescent Purple, Emerald.
The top row of the Amrezy palette is a mix of satin/frost formulas. Very pigmented, creamy, and super easy to blend. I did find the purple shade (Iridescent Purple) took a bit of work to show up on me. If you are fairer complected, it will be dynamite!
Thumb to pinky: Fresh, Blush, Venezia, Gilded, Custom.
The top row of the Tamanna palette has one matte shade (Fresh) and satin/frost formulas. Also very pigmented, creamy, and easy to blend.
Amrezy is on the top, Tamanna bottom.
As you can see, I think Topaz (Amrezy) and Gilded (Tamanna) are a bit similar. Also Legend (Amrezy) and Blush (Tamanna).
Thumb to pinky: Vanilla, Caramel, Morocco, Deep Plum, LBD.
The second row of the Amrezy palette (my favorite) has two semi-matte shades (Vanilla and LBD), and two mattes (Caramel, Morocco). Deep Plum is a satin finish. LBD is not a stark black – rather a charcoal/black. Since it is semi-matte, it will be great on lighter complexions. My favorites are Caramel & Morocco. Great shades for me as far as crease/transition, and I love Deep Plum!
Thumb to pinky: Sangria, Bengal, Chocolate, China Rose, Noir.
The second row of the Tamanna palette has a semi-matte (Bengal), and two mattes (Chocolate and Noir). The other shades are soooo gorgeous – especially Sangria!!!! This row is also my favorite. I love Sangria.
You can totally see the difference in LBD and Noir. Though Caramel and Bengal look similar, Caramel is Bengal’s matte twin. You could actually wear them in tandem. Chocolate and Deep Plum look similar, but Chocolate is definitely matte, and Deep Plum has shimmer. My absolute favorite is Sangria. Again, the formulas are very creamy, pigmented, easy to blend.
The Anastasia Amrezy Palette is no longer availble on-line. You may be able to find a palette in an Utla/Sephora/Macys/Nordies store. The Tamanna is available on the ABS webite, as well as Sephora.com. Really fabulous colors to own, especially if you can find them locally.
As always, thanks for reading, and I hope this was helpful! kxoxo
