As soon as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 was first revealed back at the start of June, I knew it was a palette I needed in my collection.
I haven’t purchased any of the other four volumes of the Norvina Pro Pigment Palettes as they were all so colourful and bright, which didn’t appeal to me, but the latest addition is a lot more neutral, but with pops of colour, instead of being completely colourful.
At the time of writing this post, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 isn’t available from any UK Anastasia Beverly Hills stockists. However, I purchased mine via the ABH website, as they have a UK website.
I’d never ordered from their website directly before, but even though it’s a ‘UK ABH’ website, the products are shipped from the US, which wasn’t mentioned anywhere on their website.
When ordering from the US, those of us in the UK are subjected to customs fees, so I would recommend waiting until the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 is available within the UK from Beauty Bay or Cult Beauty, to ensure you’re not charged by customs.
“NORVINA® Pro Pigment Palette Vol. 5 debuts as the latest addition to the NORVINA® Collection. This professional-grade artistry palette features 25 deluxe-sized, high-performance shades with a gorgeous lilac color story, curated by Norvina herself.
The diverse shade range ensures enough supporting and complementary colors to create looks with limitless variation and dimension.
Ranging from vibrant mattes to stunning neutrals and multi-dimensional sparkles, the buttery, highly pigmented formula of these shadows and pressed pigments deliver intense color payoff. Have the ultimate versatility to build from soft to artistic and create your most personalized makeup looks yet.”
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 is $60 and contains twenty five shades, within a stunning purple, large square plastic compact with a huge mirror inside the lid.
I love the design of this palette, as it’s purple with a shattered glass effect with holographic accents. As this was the first Pro Pigment Palette I had from ABH, I was surprised by how big the palette is.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 shades are all laid out with like grid references, instead of shade names. The lack of specific shade names doesn’t bother me, but it’s interesting and unique to other palettes available, and there’s a nice amount of space between each shade.
Each of the 25 shades within the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 contain 1.8g of product which is very generous for a single shade, and is .3g more than a full size MAC shadow, so for $60, it’s actually a really decent price, especially once you’ve seen how amazing the quality is…..

I have quite a few ABH eyeshadow palettes in my collection, and I love their formula, but the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 is honestly incredible. I really hope the swatches do the palette justice, but the quality really has blown me away.
There were two shades which were a little dusty and lacklustre compared to the other twenty three shades, and they were D4 and D5, both of which are purple matte shades. They perform better on the eyes, but they don’t swatch very well at all, but purples are notoriously difficult to formulate.
The shimmers however, are incredible. In particular, C2 is the prettiest, most pigmented silver taupe you could imagine, and E3 performs like it’s a liquid foil, with the most amazing wet look shine.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 is beyond stunning, and the quality is incredible. I would, however, highly, highly recommend using an opaque eyeshadow base or primer when using the purples, as the B2 shade gave me purple lids for two days, and most of the palette is made from pressed pigments.
If I could make one alteration to the palette, it’d be to add a warm toned light brown matte, instead of having both C5 and E5 as they are honestly identical, and I feel like a warm toned light brown matte would be so much more versatile, to use alongside the cool toned A4, but apart from that, it’s a beautiful palette, and I cannot recommend the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol 5 enough!
