Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatch

May 10, 2017

PS: So excited to finally have my Shop My Instagram Page launched on the site (as you can see in the menu bar). As I am updating my instagram with pictures of what I buy, love and wear on a more frequent basis, you can now find all the details and product links on the page!

Back to the topic of the day, I had been eyeing on this super popular  Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette (aka the world’s most wanted palette!) which had been sold out for a very long time – yep I was one of those girls who stopped by the counter and drooled over the buttery texture and the gorgeous color combination with the tester on display. I am so glad that it finally came back in stock so I snatched one up at lightning speed! It took me a while to dip my fingers into the beautiful eye shadows. They completely lived up to my expectations as they apply flawlessly and every single shade is flattering and easy to wear for every day.


The palette is housed in a plush dusty pink velvet case, and retails for AUD$75/USD$42 (available here in Australia but it’s not in stock yet) which comes in 14 shades. I personally think it is very reasonably priced as it equates to only $5 per eye shadow for such high quality! The color theme of the palette is wearable all year round, as there is a good balance between the warm and cool tones shades. What I love about this palette is that it offers an abundant choice of the most flattering neutral colors from ivory, light brown to taupes in different finishes varying from matte to shimmer.  The pop of a few berry shades makes it more interesting and gives the palette an edge. Unlike the blues and greens, I always find that a touch of plummy red mixed with other neutral colors really compliments my brown eyes and skin tone.



All of the eye shadows feel buttery soft and silky smooth to apply without any fallout, and they all have good pigmentation and blend nicely even for the matte shades.
