Was the Riviera Palette worth the hype? – Review

When the ABH riviera palette was released earlier this year there was a lot of hype around it, I was so overwhelmed but fell love with many looks that were created with it. The palette comes with 14 shades, 6 of which are shimmers. It also has a brush which I do not particularly like but it is a plus and can be used.

Now that some time has passed I wondered if it was really worth the hype and had to review it to find out for myself! To create this look I used the shades palm, cabana and yacht

ABH eyeshadow formulas are some of the best that I have used (shameless plug for my JA X ABH palette), and this palette is no different. I’ve listed below my ratings after using it and I am very impressed. If you would like to see the palette in action I have the video on my instagram.


£46.00 – This is a lot for a palette especially if you’re like me trying to adult and save money, however I will say it has a great range of shades and can be used for everyday looks as well as extravagant night looks so may be worth the investment.


9/10, love this formula!


10/10, theres not really much to say except the pigment is there! I have swatched every single shade and I am highly impressed.


You can create MANY looks with this palette, there is a great balance of shimmers and mattes.


It was definitely worth the hype! I love this palette I am yet to experiment with all of the shades but I do know that I will be using this palette often.
