Just when I thought that the Anastasia's She Wears It Well Palette might just be my favorite travel palette, they come out with a new one well in advance for the holidays! The new Want You to Want Me Eye Shadow palette combines attractive packaging with thoughtfully arranged shades and products for the perfect eye makeup look whether it's for a night out or just a casual day of fun.
The Anastasia Want You to Want Me Holiday Palette contains an eyeshadow palette, a liquid eyeliner, a clear brow gel, and a dual-ended brush, all compactly packed within the main case. The eyeshadow palette itself can be popped out and carried on it's own, and it has it's own little mirror.
The eye shadows are all very pigmented, smooth, and easy to apply. I really did not have any issues with fallout with these shadows, though I think Ziggy might fly around a bit if you get too enthusiastic with the brush. The shadows are all pretty long lasting (have only tried over a primer), and no creasing problems either. The eyeliner is a basic black liner, and even with not having used a liquid liner in quite a while, I managed to get a pretty decent application with the thin brush. It's not waterproof, though, and washes away easily with water and soap. The clear brow gel does a good job at keeping my brows in place. On to the swatches of the eye shadows:

The Anastasia Want You To Want Me Eye Shadow Palette has a collection of neutral browns and beiges and two darker shades - a brown and a shimmery blackened purple. There are two matte shades - Platform Wedge and Members Only - which work great for a simple neutral eye. I tried out two looks with the palette - one using the brown shades (Members Only and Graphic T's) and the other with the darkened purple Iron On.

This palette scores major points in being extremely versatile, delivering equally well whatever makeup look you want for the day. The liquid eyeliner and the brow gel are the perfect bonus duo for completing the eye makeup. Add to this the attractive (and convenient) packaging, and the Anastasia Want You to Want Me Eye Shadow palette is an awesome pick - whether it's for someone who just needs a fun travel-friendly palette or as a gift. The product is also bunny-approved for being cruelty-free, so you can look beautiful and feel good too :)
