ABH x Master Palette by Mario Review and Swatches

Masterpiece! That should be the name of this palette! It is so exquisite. When I heard there was going to be a collaboration between Anastasia Beverly Hills & celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, I knew it was going to be awesome. Both are leaders in the makeup industry and excellent at what they do. Mario holds a makeup brush with the finesse of a portrait painter. The packaging is very minimal & understated. It's very unassuming. But then comes the shock factor! Nothing can prepare you, for when you swatch this palette (and you guys know I've swatched many an eye shadow palette). For each shade, I was ooh-ing & ah-ing and oh my gawd-ing after each swatch! HaHaHa The pigmentation is off the makeup charts! Metallics always swatch well, but I've never seen matte's swatch like this! There's no struggling with the shades in this palette, and the assortment of colors make this palette perfect for Fall & Winter. You're given beautiful browns, bronzes, golds, coppers and rusts. The blue & green in this palette are amazing! As Mary Poppins would say, "It's practically perfect in every way". Even the double-ended brush that comes with the palette makes applying & blending these shadows a breeze. This palette has been selling out like hot cakes. I purchased mine from ULTA. They've had a couple of restocks, but it's currently sold out. It's currently sold out at Sephora. It is still available at Macy's! So if you want it, get it (don't think about it)! Many beauty enthusiasts are buying two of these! I hope these two collaborate again next year. They make beautiful makeup together! So if you haven't already guessed (after all this gushing & lusting), I super duper love the ABH Master Palette by Mario. It's definitely going to be listed as one of my favorite beauty products for 2016. I need a drink. >.< LMAO

It's time for a Sweet Surprise! My sweet surprise recipient is Tanya of Leopard Lace And Cheesecake blog. Isn't that the cutest blog name? Tanya is a very down-to-earth, sweet blogger. She has a love for both beauty & fashion. She gives her honest thoughts and opinions on the products she reviews. She reviews an array of products! Perfumes, eye shadows, nail polishes, primers, hair care name it and she covers it! She has a love for beauty, but she equally loves fashion! I always look forward to her shopping hauls. She buys the cutest clothes and accessories. She creates YouTube videos, in which she shows you the clothes and also shows you what they look like on. How many people do that? I find Tanya easy to talk to. We're always chit chatting on Snapchat about makeup and discussing things. You feel comfortable talking to her. I love the relationship she has with her boyfriend. They are the cutest! They have so much fun at the events they attend. I love seeing that kind of connection between a couple. Tanya, I'm gifting you both the Master Palette by Mario and Modern Renaissance palette. In my opinion, I think these shades will look totally awesome on you. Enjoy and continue being the beautiful person & blogger you are.


  1. Oh wow, this sounds like quite the winning combination! I love when different brands or artists collab :D

  4. OH man! Between this post, and Shireen's, I really should try to get my hands on this palette. Those swatches are just da bomb!
    And Kim, you really are too sweet with these surprises:) Congrats to Tanya!

  5. Those swatches are everything, thank you! The pigmentation looks insane, amazing colour payoff. It was so sweet of you to gift those palettes, Tanya is a lucky girl!

  6. Isn't it the most beautiful palette ever, so so perfect for the season. I just LOVE it.

  7. Such a gorgeous palette. I love that Mary Poppins quote (I'm looking forward to the re-make). :)

  8. Wow! I am blown away by the pigmentation of these shadows, Kim! I have a palette that looks very similar to this one so at first I thought, well, this can't be that different - but I was so, so wrong! I'm really impressed - I'm going to have to look at this at Sephora myself.

  9. oh Kim, your review really made me want this one!

  10. I don't think I've seen a negative review of this palette yet. It sounds like a real winner all around and the colors are beautiful Kim. Congratulations to Tanya. She sounds lovely and I hope she'll enjoy her palettes.

  12. OMG KIM! You are gonna make me cry! You are so giving and kind and are truly an amazing person. Thank you so so much for your sweet words about me and my blog. I appreciate you so much as one of my readers as well as one of my good blogging buddies <3 I enjoy our snapchat convos too and am so glad we connected! This palette looks so amazing! Your swatches are crazy pigmented and I can't wait to try these out!

  13. Girl, lately I can't help myself tearing up when I'm reading your recent posts, hahaha! That was so sweet of you to gift Tanya those products. Girl, I know EVERY SINGLE ONE of your readers will agree with me when I say that you deserve that absolute best in this life, all the success, everything! You have a heart of pure gold and you're someone I love to support and greatly admire. Now, on to this palette! It's been the talk of the town and everyone seems to really love it for the reasons you've stated. You can tell just by looking at the swathes how amazing the quality is! I love that the packaging was rather basic because it shows they put more effort and money into the actual product you'd use. It's the worse when a product has great packaging, but lacks in quality. Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having the best day so far!



  14. Congrats to Tanya! You are so sweet to do that Kim :) I enjoy reading about your friends and how much thought you put into picking the perfect piece for them.

    Although I hadn't heard of Mario before this sounds like a great collaboration and product :) From your review I can see why it's selling out!

    Hope you're having a good week :)

  15. Claudia and Paris were my favourite shades and don't you just love it when you find a palette his fabulous !!
    How nice of you to gift it to Tanya ;)

  16. I love the deep shades and high pigmentation of this palette. Such a great find!

  17. This palette is soooo gorgeous!! I've been lusting after it. I actually went to Ulta to purchase it a few weeks, but it wasn't in stores yet! I was so sad but now I'm making myself wait because I have so many palettes. If I still want it in a few weeks and it's not sold out still, I'll get it. The swatches are beautiful Kim! I'm so glad you love this. And big congrats to Tanya for winning your sweet surprises! I love her and she's an amazing friend!

  18. Those swatches make me want to cry. I would sell my soul for this stunning palette. Fantastic swatches xxx

  20. Looks like a wonderful palette. The colours look so deep. It's nice that there's a variety of colours in one palette.

  21. Holy crap, those swatches look amazing and the palette looks incredible. I own the Modern Renaissance palette and love it so I can only imagine how amazing this one is too.

  22. I hope Tanya enjoys her wonderful sweet surprise. I swear Kim, you are one of the most generous bloggers I know. May God bless you. Xxx I see that the Sephora in Qatar sells ABH products now. I need to go see if this palette is in stock. Love the shades in this one.

  23. I was torn between getting this palette and the Modern Renaissance but I think I need this palette! Your swatches look amazing! Hopefully I can still find it somewhere.
    Tanya is the best...I just adore her and her friendship! You are so sweet and giving, Kim!
