I said to myself that I’m not going to get another eyeshadow palette since I have plenty but as soon as I saw the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette I knew that I will break my no buy. For awhile I was resisting getting this palette but after seeing so many tutorials I broke and got it and I’m so glad because this is one of the best palettes that ABH has released.
I already have three eyeshadow palettes from ABH that were limited edition and I really like them but the Modern Renaissance palette feels better in quality than the others plus the good news is that it is part of her permanent line. From the packaging to the eyeshadows that come in the palette, everything feels of higher quality than her previous palettes.
The ABH Modern Renaissance palette has 14 shades that are all on the warmer side. It contains neutral shades to very rich berry shades that would be perfect for fall.
The ABH Modern Renaissance Palette has the following shades:
Tempera (beige with an ultra-matte finish)
Golden Ochre (earthy yellow with an ultra-matte finish)
Vermeer (iridescent shell with a metallic finish)
Buon Fresco (antique lavender with an ultra-matte finish)
Antique Bronze (metallic sable with a satin finish)
Love Letter (raspberry with an ultra-matte finish)
Cyprus Umber (dark coffee with an ultra-matte finish)
Raw Sienna (neutral amber with an ultra-matte finish)
Burnt Orange (deep orange with an ultra-matte finish)
Primavera (shimmery gold dust with a metallic finish)
Red Ochre (sienna with an ultra-matte finish
Venetian Red (crimson with an ultra-matte finish)
Warm Taupe (earthy gray with an ultra-matte finish)
Realgar (brick with an ultra-matte finish)
All the eyeshadows in the palette are extremely pigmented so you have to make sure to tap the brush before you apply them on your eyes just to prevent any fallout. They seem to kick off a lot of product when you dip your brush in to the pan so you have to be careful not to swirl the brush too much, especially with the darker shades you would want to build up the color slowly just so the blending of the eyeshadows goes easier.
Regarding the blendability, they blend really easy and look beautiful on the eyes. I love that the palette has more matte shades than shimmery and they’re of great quality. I also like that the eyeshadows are all on the warm side plus the reddish and orange shades are just to die for.
Swatches L to R: Tempera, Golden Ochre, Vermeer, Buon Fresco, Antique Bronze, Love Letter, Cyprus Umber
Swatches L to R: Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Venetian Red, Warm Taupe, Realgar
I give the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette a big thumbs up. It’s a very nice warm eyeshadow palette and a great option for fall. You still get your neutral shades that are perfect for every day wear but also get great orange, red and berry shades that I love wearing during the fall months.
