ABH Master Palette by Mario Review

When this limited edition ABH Master Palette by Mario came on the market, I contemplated for a hot minute on whether or not to invest in it. Of course I snapped back to reality, ran to Sephora and grabbed it! Thank the makeup gods that I did because this palette sold out very quickly and I doubt it will be restocked. There are 12 neutral and jewel-toned shades in a range of matte to shimmery finishes. The packaging is somewhat bland, unlike the Renaissance Palette that came in a beautiful pink velvet case. The Master Pallet is black with muted gold writing. Not bad, but not very creative. It comes with the standard ABH double ended brush and a mirror. 


Mario Dedivanovic is Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist and has stated that his inspiration while making this palette was Kim K herself. This is what he had to say “I had Kim on my mind a lot during the creation of the palette and the shades. She’s just like every other girl when doing her makeup, so I wanted to create shades that would make it simple for any girl to do her makeup even when they are in a rush. The Kim shade to me is the perfect soft bronze that would look great all over the lid to add some color, texture and warmth to the eyes. I’ve always used these types of shades in all my work on Kim and I think this palette and especially the shades ‘Kim’ and ‘Muse’ are reminiscent of our classic signature look.”

Of course ” Kim” and “Muse” would end up being my favourite shades, along with Bronx, 5th avenue, Paris and Isabel. “Kim” and “Muse” can be worn day or night and blended together to create a gorgeous plum-golden look. To complete any day look using the Master Palette, I suggest a brown/taupe liner on lash line to add a bit of drama to the eyes. This palette is worth the cost if you prefer wearing the neutral shades like I do. Mario himself is very much in love with all neutral shades. He prefers to layer these shades to deepen the eye look. He’s not a fan of outrageous colours and it definitely shows in this palette. 

 The shadows themselves are creamy/velvety almost buttery smooth. The only shades I found somewhat dry are Claudia, LuLu and Hollywood ( look at the swatches to gain a good understanding of what I mean by dry). I have many many palettes (15 and counting)and I find this one has the best pigmentation, texture and colour payoff. It’s so versatile as the shadows can be worn alone if you desire or blend several together to create your own signature look! The shadows are very neutral so you won’t achieve an overly dramatic look using the shades. It is one of the most wearable palette I own. The longevity of the shadows are on par with other ABH shadows, so you apply these shadows in the morning and still have them look fresh by evening. I experienced little fall out from this palette.

\ A very quick look I did, blending Isabel and Violeta on my lids and smudging on the lower lash line \

\ MAC Hang Up Lipstick\

\ No filter\


If you get a chance to try the Master Palette By Mario, I highly recommend it! If you were lucky enough to get your hands on it, what are you favourite shades?

    Just nu mest Torchlight II, men efter att ha knarkat ”the Guild” nu ett tag blir jag lite sugen pÃ¥ att spela MMORPG igen… Men det förra jag spelat har blivit sÃ¥ himla trÃ¥kigt efter servern jag hängde pÃ¥ stängde ner, sÃ¥ jag fÃ¥r se om jag hittar nÃ¥got annat jag tycker verkar kul…

Thank you for your silence, Google and God starts to be so similar…

    Homeopater har aldrig påstått att det går att överdosera sådan medicin, tvärtom. VoF och Fuglesang fantiserar ihop årets största halmgubbe om homeopati, och missar fullständigt måltavlan. Folkbildning genom att ljuga.
