Not too long ago I purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Set to review. I kept seeing beautiful pictures on Instagram and thought I would adore it so when I saw it at Sephora I picked it up. I’m a total sucker for pretty looks I want to attempt myself. Let’s take a look!

Here are the swatches. These are on bare skin with no primer. I would never wear them this way as I have oily lids that require primer.
aged silver with brown tones
muted copper with brown undertones
warm green with subtle gold shimmer
brown with red undertones shimmer
nude pink shimmer
soft peachy orange matte
brown with red undertones matte
burgundy with pink shimmer, though I felt like this still pulled too brown for my taste
black with gold glitter
Check out my Anastasia Covet Waterproof Eyeliner review here for swatches and details on how the eyeliners work for me.
I really feel like the eyeliner amount is stingy for the price, as you only get .01 oz of eyeliner for $19. By comparison, Urban Decay eyeliners are $19 and they give you .04 oz of product, which is a much better deal to me. However, the eyeliner does work well for oily eyes as it’s on the dry side. In other words, this liner doesn’t glide along the skin, you may experience skipping or tugging.
The tweezers are very nice. I think they’re the most expensive pair of tweezers that I’ve ever used.
I wasn’t fond of the brow pencil, which surprises me because I really love the Anastasia Tinted Brow Gels. See my tinted brow gel review. I felt like the brow pencil skipped and I didn’t like the color.
I find it inaccurate that the website calls the brush a ‘professional grade lining and blending brush’. Like I said in the video, I’m really not impressed with the brush in the slightest. I really feel like this brush is not up to the normal caliber of product that I expect from Anastasia Beverly Hills. You can see my Wayne Goss brush set review for amazing brushes.
I really love the Look book that came with the palette and I easily feel that it adds a lot of value to the set.
For reference, a typical MAC refill pan is .05 oz for $12. The typical Anastasia Illumin8 eyeshadow duos (discontinued) are .04 each (so .08 per duo) and cost $23. To equal .31 oz, it would be about 4 of the Anastasia duos, which would cost about $92. Add the eyeshadow, tweezers, mini brow pencil, and eyeliner together and you get $147.08. I’m not sure the value assigned to the brush and the look book, but they would make up the remaining $64.92. For the purpose of this review I’ve assigned the duo headed brush a value of $44.92 and the book a value of $20. Anyway, I would love to know how ABH calculates the value of the palette. Just going off of the value of the eyeshadow, the look book and tweezers, I say this set is worth the price if you like those items.
I would have liked to have seen a charcoal matte instead of the Truffle, since Truffle and Sienna can be used interchangeably to me. With Rum Cake (which I do like), Truffle, and Sienna, I felt like this was a very brown heavy palette. I do really like the Antique shade. Pink Sapphire and Black Diamond are a lot of fun too. Cream is perfect for a matte highlighter or for blending out colors. Ballet is a beautiful subtle pink highlight shade.
Overall, I like the eyeshadows, eyeliner, tweezers and look book in this set. I’m really not impressed with the brush or the brow pencil.
What do you think of the Anastasia Lavish Set? Is it a must have?
