I think I’m a bit late to the party with this palette, but never-the-less, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette has won me over (in the same way its probably won everyone else’s hearts!). If you haven’t seen this palette kicking around on Instagram before now, you’ve probably been living under a rock – I think this is one of the most hyped palettes I’ve ever heard about and I’m not really sure why it took me so long to purchase it!
I won’t bore you with the details that you probably already know about from everyone else, but this palette has 14 shades packed into a pretty-pink velvet feeling case. It comes with a double ended brush (who knows where mine is, I seem to have lost it already haha) and a large mirror on the inside. These eyeshadows are some of the most pigmented eyeshadows I’ve every used, it makes me want to pick up some of the ABH individual shadows, because if they’re of the same quality then they’re onto a winner! The first time I used this, I ended up with a crazy amount of fallout all over my face – but then I realised that these shadows are so pigmented – you really only need to tap your brush into them gently. The shade range in this palette is very warm and has a beautiful pink-orange vibe about it thats very different from any other palettes that I own. I love how the first half of the palette is pretty warm-neutral and then the other half steps it up a notch with the brighter, bolder shades. The mattes in this are crazy, I’ve never used a palette where the shades are just so packed with pigment! I thought this would make them hard to work with but they’re actually incredibly easy to blend and the last really well on my eyes – even without a primer. My favourite shades are definitely: Raw Sierra (a warm matte brown), Primavera (A metallic gold) and Love Letter (a deep matte pink). I haven’t done swatches for this post (mostly because I’m pretty terrible at them ‘tips appreciated’) but you’ve probably seen them a million times! I will post some on Instagram so be sure to follow me there if you want to have a wee look! I definitely want to add more ABH eyeshadows to my collection, like the Soft Glam palette and the new Norvina palette. Sorry its taken me so long to get my hands on this! But better late than never.
