The Alyssa Edwards Palette was officially (and exclusively) released on Anastasia Beverly Hills’ (ABH) online stores last night at 9PM (SGT). There has been so much hype surrounding this new palette since the news about the collaboration first broke on May 21.
The post quickly grabbed the attention of the masses.
The next day, ABH (@anastasiabeverlyhills) released more details about the launch, including the chance to get early access to the new palettes at DragCon LA (from May 24 to May 26).
Fans of ABH and Alyssa Edwards were literally so excited that those who managed to get their hands on the palette at DragCon LA starting doing a variety of makeup looks.
