I finally got around to sharing my thoughts about the latest palette release from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Norvina has done it again with a Volume 4 pressed pigment palette! I honestly didn’t think that trio would be seeing a fourth addition, but when I saw the color story I knew it would be my next favorite. I cannot resist a good pink and purple color story. This time around, there are even pressed glitters included. If you’re interested in hearing my opinions on this palette, keep reading 🙂
PR Style packaging that includes a mini eyeshadow base.
The Norvina Volume 4 Pro Pigment Palette retails for $60 USD. At the time I purchased this, available was a PR Package set that included a mini eyeshadow primer. I was running out of my last mini primer, so it was a good value for me to stock up on another. The PR set was around $70-75 USD and came with a nice box that can serve for other uses. At the time of this post, the PR set is no longer available (sorry!)
Like with the previous palettes, Volume 1, 2, and 3, this new Volume 4 also comes with a hard and weighted plastic housing with a large mirror. My favorite part of course is that its a lovely baby pink color! The palette also has 25 eyeshadows in rich matte shades, metallics, satins, and glitter.
Row A: Metallic silver, High-Sparkle Lavender, Cool toned Magenta, Light cool-toned brown matte, light Champagne metallic
Row B: Metallic Peachy silver, Light Berry red mate, Caramel brown matte, Dark brown metallic, Cool toned dark brown matte
Row C: Sheer metallic pearl, Hot magenta pink matte, Metallic purple with blue shimmer, matte Lavender, Dark berry red matte
Row D: Light sandy brown matte, light neon yellow matte, Metallic peach champagne, Light mauve purple metallic, Cinnamon brown matte,
Row E: Matte medium pink, Pressed Glitter (multicolor), Pressed Glitter (Burgundy), Matte wine red, matte hot pink
What has taken me so long to get this review posted, is the fact that I had taken a makeup hiatus around the time this palette was released. During the earlier part of the year, the COVID pandemic took hold and self-quarentine was a must. I hadn’t been going anywhere that required me to be dolled up. Now that I am back at the office…well so is my makeup! I’ve had plenty time to give this babe a test run and see how I like it.
In all fairness, this palette is just as quality as the previously released Norvina Pro Pigment palettes. The only reason this palette doesn’t receive a full rating from me, is simply because if you have the others you honestly do not need it. I have not done comparison swatches, but these purples and pinks look similar (if not alike) on my eyes as the ones I already have from Volume 1. The pressed glitters are a nice addition, but I am not a fan of glitter on the eyes, for fear of eye-safety. Overall, it is not as unique as the previously released palettes, but still a great value if you’re on the hunt for your very first one and do not already own ABH products.
