Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette Review

First, sorry for the long title, brands really need to cut those names down. Second, how pretty is this palette? Forget about the actual eyeshadows, but the packaging is so pretty and sleek. I’ve been obsessing over this palette for a while now, but I didn’t want to cave. I didn’t want to want it…. I failed and you know, that’s okay. It’s okay to fail and buy yourself a gorgeous new palette with gorgeous new shades.

This palette is so beautful, and I really do love the shades. Some are similar to the ones in my Bronze Kyshadow Palette, but there’s more variety and I love the couple of pink-ish shades. I am sure you all love how professional I sound describing these colors. Total expert. I think it has the necessary shades for an everyday look, but also a couple of shades that can be used for something more out there, night out or event.

I didn’t it want to swatch it with my fingers because the palette has more than 10 shades and I don’t have more than ten figers and I didn’t want to taint the lighter shades with residue of the darker shades, and I am sure this could’ve been avoided by having tissue nearby and cleaning my fingers in between swatches, buuuut I didn’t think of this at the time. So I used the little brush the palette comes with which I don’t think did a very good job representing the pigmentation of the shades.

Sorry for the really awkward photo of my arm. I really am sorry. One day I’ll perfect the art of swatching but today is not that day. My favorite shade is definitely Love Letter – the name miiight have something to do with it, but it’s such a beautiful berry shade and I think it can be used to create really pretty eye looks. I still need to really try it out and play around with it some more, but so far, I am loving it. I tried it today and I was really impressed with how easily the shades blend.

Have you tried this palette yet? What are your first impressions? Don’t forget to like this post and leave a comment below if you enjoyed it!

  • Welcome to the club! Modern Renaissance will always be my fave!

    • I am loving it so far and love that there are some colory shades but also the natural browns and bronze for a natural eye look. I am loving this club.

  • I also have this palette and did a review on it, but I must say, I really enjoyed reading yours. You’re funny!! Don’t be hard on yourself, you did an amazing job, and swatching with a brush is more realistic and a great idea!!! Look forward to reading more from you xoxo

    • Oh cool! Thank you 🙂 I will make sure to read your review as well!

  • Love this pallete

  • I haven’t got it but it’s on my wish list. It’s one of those ones I really want but it’s so expensive and I already have enough eyeshadow palettes, way more than enough, but the colours are so different so I’ll probably cave eventually.

    • I knoooww but it’s sooo pretty and so pigmented. I think you should do it! Dooo it!! Get it!

  • Everyone talks about eyebrows being sisters not twins... I feel the same way about eyelashes. Loved trying out the @marcbeauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. It's easy for this one to get on the clumpy side, but I think wiping the excess off really helps. What are your favorite mascara tricks to make them look more even?

  • Happy Wednesday!! Went foundation-less for this and forgot how much I like it! Before getting into makeup I would only do concealer and powder. After I got into makeup I started feeling like I HAD to wear some sort of base. You don't HAVE to do anything and you'll look gorgeous as long as you're feeling comfortable with yourself
💪🏼

Aquí me salte la base. Antes de que me obsesionada con el maquillaje solo usaba corrector y polvos. Luego empece a sentir que TENÍA que usar algún tipo de base. La verdad es que no TIENES que hacer nada. Te verás hermosa con tal de que te estás sintiendo cómoda!
