The Modern Renaissance Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills is an eyeshadow palette that almost everybody owns and is raving about! I was finally able to get my hands on the palette back in May thanks to my boyfriend!!
I’ve had the palette for just about two months so I wanted to share with you my thoughts over the palette!! Keep reading to see if this palette turned out to be a hit or a miss. Enjoy!
So first off, lets start with the packaging! The palette is closed with a magnet, personally I like when it’s more of a case because I feel more secure. Kind of like the Naked Palette cases. However, the magnet is pretty strong that it probably won’t accidentally open. I really enjoy the velvet material they used but I would have gone with a different color. The light purple doesn’t really do justice to the actual colors of the palette. Nevertheless, the color of the outside ultimately doesn’t matter as long as the eyeshadows themselves as great.
So now lets get inside! The palette comes with 12 eyeshadows ranging from light to dark, a double ended brush, and a mirror. I haven’t been using the brush much at all since I use the brushes that I already own. The palette has matte and shimmery colors so it’s a great palette for a soft, barely-there look or for an intense smokey eye.
The eyeshadows in the Renaissance palette are warm and great to use year round, especially during summer and fall! The shadows are super pigmented and blend really well together. They do have a bit of fall out but not so much for it to be a huge problem. You can see the swatches of the shadows below. The picture on the left is of the top eyeshadows and the picture on the right is of the bottom. The only color that didn’t really show up on the picture is Tempera which is a super light shimmery shadow. While it did not show that good in the picture, it looks great on the brow bone!
My favorite shadows out of this palette are Primavera and Love Letter. They are super gorgeous alone but I like to use both on my lid for a gold shimmery look with a touch of burgundy.
Have you used this palette before? If so, was it a hit or miss to you?
