Anastasia Norvina Vol. 1 Pro Pigment Palette Review & Swatches

Norvina Vol. 1

Anastasia Norvina Vol. 1 Pro Pigment Palette ($60.00 for 1.575 oz.) includes an array of brightly-hued matte shades paired with a few pops of shimmer. The only shimmer I had issues with was D2, which was drier, thin, and weak in pigment/more prone to fading, while the mattes were typically quite pigmented with light to moderate powderiness, slight fallout, and decent wear (seven to eight hours). The mattes were inconsistent when it came to blending out; some were easy to work with while others required more time to blend out. Unless one is using a white base, I think some of the nuances between shades ends up getting lost during application (like A2 and B5, A3 and B1, C5 and E5, and E2 and E4).

I think that some of the brighter matte shades were better at retaining their intensity and vivid hues than past formulas I’ve tried (in similar colors) but often required more effort and patience to blend out; it was particularly noticeable when I compare dupes side-by-side as Anastasia’s has a richness to it that is often lacking in potential dupes. The majority of the red, pink, and purple-leaning shades stained my lid into the next day, which may or may not be an issue for you; the staining occurred even over translucent primer (Smashbox 24HR).

NOTICE for the following shades: A2, A3, A5, B1, B3, B4, B5, C4, C5, D2, D3, D4, D5, E1, E2, E4, E5. All products categorized under “Pigment” carry a warning in the US that the product is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” Brands in the US typically market these products as “Pigments” (instead of “Eyeshadow”), and there is often a warning on the back of packaging or the label. The product includes color additives that are not approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. Some color additives in “Pigments” have no usage restrictions in the EU, per CosIng, and can be used on the eyes. We recommend checking ingredients to confirm current safety assessment/restrictions: FDA/CosIng.

A1 (Norvina Vol. 1)

A1 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a pale lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly loosely-pressed consistency that was a smidgen dusty in the pan. The color applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

A2 (Norvina Vol. 1)

A2 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a bright, medium purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture felt slightly drier and thin to the touch with light powderiness (but not much in the way of fallout). The product applied fairly evenly to bare skin, but it seemed to stick a bit more intensely to certain places so it took more effort to diffuse and blend out along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours and left a strong stain behind.

A3 (Norvina Vol. 1)

A3 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a deep plum with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and more substantial than some mattes in the palette, which I’ve found tends to improve performance (especially over bare skin). The eyeshadow blended out without too much effort along the edges but did take more work than a perfect formula would have. It lasted nicely for eight hours and left a strong behind after.

A4 (Norvina Vol. 1)

A4 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a bright, golden copper with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was smooth, soft, and thin without being too thin or prone to sheering out. The eyeshadow had opaque color payoff that wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

A5 (Norvina Vol. 1)

A5 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color payoff that applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. The texture was soft, slightly drier to the touch, but it wasn’t prone to sheering out too readily nor was fallout an issue. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly, and it did leave a stain behind.

B1 (Norvina Vol. 1)

B1 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a medium magenta pink with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery consistency that had light fallout during application. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, though it sheered out a bit when blended out so I needed to go back with a second layer to build the coverage back up. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours and did leave a stain behind.

B2 (Norvina Vol. 1)

B2 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a light-medium bronze with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation that adhered well to my lid without sheering out too readily but still diffused easily along the edges for a seamless application. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense but on the thinner side, and wasn’t prone to fallout. It wore well for eight hours on me before it showed signs of fading.

B3 (Norvina Vol. 1)

B3 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a bright, light fuchsia pink with subtle, warm undertones and cooler bluish-pink pearl and micro-sparkle. It had opaque color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was slightly drier to the touch but applied well to my lid. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before I noticed fading.

B4 (Norvina Vol. 1)

B4 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a muted, medium purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that needed a more opaque (or white) base to get to truly opaque coverage that didn’t appear patchy. Over bare skin or applied on top of translucent primer, it looked somewhat patchy and was harder to diffuse along the edges without losing some intensity. The texture was moderately powdery and was prone to fallout as well. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours on me before fading, and it left a faint stain behind.

B5 (Norvina Vol. 1)

B5 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There were fine flecks of micro-sparkle strewn throughout, but it appeared pretty matte to my eye when applied. The texture was soft, fairly silky, but it was moderately powdery and sheered out a bit when applied initially, though it could be built up. The pigmentation was more semi-opaque to nearly opaque in one layer. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before it showed signs of fading.

C1 (Norvina Vol. 1)

C1 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a bright white with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a soft, silky consistency that was lightly powdery but also felt a touch on the drier side. I felt like it did not sit as kindly on my lids as other shades, as it had a tendency to emphasize dryness and texture. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer, though it sheered out to more semi-opaque coverage in practice. It stayed on decently for seven hours on me before fading visibly.

C2 (Norvina Vol. 1)

C2 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a light-medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The eyeshadow had good color coverage in one layer, but the more emollient consistency made it prone to skipping when applied. I had the best luck applying this by patting it onto my lid using a fingertip or a wet brush rather than a dry brush. It lasted nicely for seven hours but had light fallout over time.

C3 (Norvina Vol. 1)

C3 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a medium-dark, coppery red with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff that applied well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color. The consistency was smooth to the touch, dense but not too thick or too heavy, and blendable. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

C4 (Norvina Vol. 1)

C4 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a muted, medium-dark berry with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage that was only buildable over primer or a lightly tacky base. The eyeshadow had a softer, more finely-milled feel, but it was quite powdery, prone to sheering out, and had moderate fallout. It blended out more seamlessly along the edge than some of the other pinks/purples in the palette, though. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

C5 (Norvina Vol. 1)

C5 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly powdery consistency that felt velvety to the touch. The color applied evenly to bare skin and blended out without difficulty. The product lasted well for seven and a half hours on my lid before fading visibly.

D1 (Norvina Vol. 1)

D1 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a medium yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to bare skin, but the texture was slightly dry and did seem to emphasize my lid texture a touch. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed any fading.

D2 (Norvina Vol. 1)

D2 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a light-medium, cooler blue with flecks of multi-colored shimmer and micro-sparkle. The texture was drier, thin, and stiffer to work with, which resulted in more medium, buildable coverage and gave the edge a harsher line as it didn’t want to spread and diffuse easily. It stayed on well for six and a half hours on me before showing signs of fading.

D3 (Norvina Vol. 1)

D3 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a deep red with cool undertones and a matte finish. The product was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety consistency that was a touch powdery in the pan but applied well to bare skin. It blended out with little effort and retained most of its intensity. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours on me and left a stain behind.

D4 (Norvina Vol. 1)

D4 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a rich, deep cobalt blue with cool undertones and flecks of random, blue micro-sparkle scattered on top. The texture was soft, a little drier and somewhat powdery in the pan, but it applied with very little fallout and blended out decently along the edges. It had opaque pigmentation but did seem to darken and lose some of its brightness in practice. The product wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

D5 (Norvina Vol. 1)

D5 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a dark black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in one layer, while the consistency was smooth, silky, and more finely-milled than other shades in the palette. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out nicely along the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

E1 (Norvina Vol. 1)

E1 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a rich, medium coral with strong, warm undertones and a peachy-gold shimmer finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly to my lid. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense without being heavy, and blendable. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

E2 (Norvina Vol. 1)

E2 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a bright, medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a thinner, slightly dry consistency, but it managed to retain its opaque coverage when applied to bare skin. I didn’t have any issues with diffusing the edge of this shade either. It wore well for eight hour son me before showing signs of fading.

E3 (Norvina Vol. 1)

E3 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a darker, mustard yellow with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. The eyeshadow had a soft, lightly powdery consistency that had some substance to it, so it didn’t seem prone to sheering out when applied on my skin. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly on my lid.

E4 (Norvina Vol. 1)

E4 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a bright, coral-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The product had opaque color payoff paired with a drier, slightly thin consistency that still felt and applied better on my lid than when initially swatched. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours and left a stain behind.

E5 (Norvina Vol. 1)

E5 (Norvina Vol. 1) is a medium-dark burgundy with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage, but it was incredibly powdery and drier, which resulted in fallout and a tendency to sheer out (and that led to more fallout). This shade was blendable, though, and it was easier to work with than some of the brighter mattes in the palette. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
