I’ve addressed my addiction to buying and collecting eyeshadow palettes before and I’m pleased to say there is now a new addition to my collection – the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette!
You may be thinking how late to the party I am with this one as this palette is old news to some now, but I wanted to let the hype die down before I made the purchase as I wanted to know if it was worth the money!
I was lucky enough to get this palette for Christmas and I was so excited to finally get my hands on it after dwelling on it for so long!
The packaging is stunning, the velvet/suede feel packaging isn’t something I’ve seen too many other brands do, so this palette looks really nice on display!
The shade range was one of the reasons I held back buying this as I was unsure I would get any use out of some of the colours, such as the bold pinks, but the neutral and warm shades were enough to convince me I needed this!
I’ve fallen in love with the shade ‘Tempera’ for brow bone and inner corner highlighting but so far I’d say my hero shade of the palette is ‘Burnt Orange’; this is amazing as both a crease shade and blended all across the lid, depending on what look you want to create.
‘Raw Sienna’ is a great transition colour for the crease and base colour all across the lid.
I have tried a lot of eyeshadows and thought I’d found some of the best quality there was to try, but it’s fair to say the pigmentation and quality of the shadows from Anastasia top them all.
The colour pay off on these shades is amazing, the colours come out on the lid so intensely yet thanks to the softness of the quality, they’re so blendable, making them easy to work with and wear.
I’d say I prefer the matte shades slightly more than the shimmers as I think the pigmentation and intensity of colour in the mattes is slightly better and I find those colours easier to work with.
I know you probably don’t need any more encouragement to purchase another eyeshadow palette, but I truly think every makeup lover, both amateur and professional need to purchase this palette!
