WORTH IT: Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette Review, Swatch, Price, Looks

Here's a review on Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance.

PRICE: P2,500.00
FROM: Asked my friend to purchase in the USA
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available through online resellers


So I took the plunge and I'm glad I did. Took me a couple of months to finally decide to purchase Modern Renaissance palette and it's this year's best eyeshadow palette purchase of mine to date. It's hyped, but the hype is real!


Best- selling Modern Renaissance features 14 eyeshadow shades in neutral and berry tones.

 It's a sleek palette in a blush pink tone; so pretty!

 Here's a close up of this pretty palette; it's covered in velour!


The palette comes with an embedded mirror and a dual ended brush that features a tapered brush and blending brush. Finally! Someone has thought of including tapered and bullet brushes in eyeshadow palettes! Because these two are the most useful eye brushes in my opinion!

Oooohhhh! Look at those gorgeous colors! This is arguably the eyeshadow palette that revolutionized berry and red tones!

Here are the swatches:

L-R: Tempera, Golden Ochre, Vermeer, Buon Fresco, Antique Bronze, Love Letter, Cyprus Umber

L-R: Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Vibrant Red, Warm Taupe, Realgar

1. Tempera- shell white (matte)
2. Golden Ochre- light yellow (matte)
3. Vermeer- pinkish pearl (shimmer)
4. Buon Fresco- lavender (matte)
5. Antique Bronze- bronze/purple (frost)
6. Love Letter- hot pink (matte)
7. Cyprus Umber- dark brown/taupe
8. Raw Sienna- warm ochre
9. Burnt Orange- soft vintage orange
10. Primavera- light gold (shimmer)
11. Red Ochre- midtone red with brown undertone
12. Venetian Red- warm red with pink undertone
11. Warm Taupe- midtone taupe (matte)
12. Realgar- terracotta (matte)

I like the number and shade selections of the matte variants in the palette. What impressed me the most about the product is the texture: it's buttery, but silky and soft; definitely better and glides on better than some luxury eyeshadows I have tried. Also, the matte eyeshadows are oh so easy to blend! There's no fallout and pigmentation is heavy - a small dot is all you need to get visible color.

As for staying power, they hold up pretty well on normal skin; a primer is needed for oily lids. If used with a good primer, these shadows become virtually bulletproof! :D


Here are some looks I created with the palette:

Red Ochre + Cyprus Umber + Realgar + Tempera

Cyprus Umber + Venetian Red

Buon Fresco + Antique Bronze + Cyprus Umber + Burnt Orange

I'd also like to praise this palette for coming up with a lavender shade that shows up really well on morena skin!

I can go on and on about how much I love this palette; it's an all in one palette that lets you switch from a neutral to colorful look in an instant, the colors are true on the skin as it does on the pan plus they look good on all skin tones, and its texture is amazing!!!
