My goal is to hit pan on every shade in my beloved, Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Master Palette by Mario this year. I chose this palette for my Pan That Palette 2018 challenge because this is one of the most versatile palettes in my collection. Also, in my humble opinion, this is the best palette Anastasia Beverly Hills has released to-date.
Please keep reading for an update on my Pan that Palette 2018 progress.
Last Pan that Palette 2018 Update
ABH Master Palette by Mario – August 2018
During my 2nd update, I hit pan on Paris and Kim but had made virtually no dent in the matte shades or the deeper metallics (Bronx and Claudia).
I am proud to say that I’ve hit on another shade, Muse. Over the course of the Fall, I predict that I will widen this pan because this is such a beautiful shade for this time of year. With this new pan, I am halfway to my goal of hitting pan on every shade in this palette. Additionally, I’ve widened the pan on the shades Marina and NYC since my last update.
Despite this progress, I am frustrated by my lack of progress on the matte shades in this palette. In particular, I am frustrated that I haven’t yet hit pan on Lula or Isabel because I use these shadows in my crease for every single look I create with this palette. Similarly, I use Violetta to deepen my crease with nearly every look.

However, I don’t want to waste any of the eyeshadows in this palette by digging into them too hard. Not only does this waste product, but it is essentially the equivalent of throwing out money. I love this palette too much to do this. I will need to find ways to use more shadows in my looks by incorporating more colors or make more of an effort to wear eyeshadow every day.
I have roughly four months until this challenge comes to an end because began this project at the end of February. I will likely post one more update at the end of December before the finale in February 2019.
