Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
If there is one makeup product that I am obsessed with and will continue purchasing, aside from lipstick, is eyeshadow palettes. And there is one particular palette that I have not put down since I received it. It might not be a shock to you that I have fallen in love with the new Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. It is a favourite amongst bloggers and youtubers alike, but that's not what influenced my purchase in the slightest. It caught my eye on ABH snapchat and as fast as you can say 123 I added it to the top of my wishlist, and my wishlist at the moment is seriously long.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette contains a total of 14 warm shades, with a mix of matte and shimmers, but mainly mattes. I am a warm eyeshadow lover and so I was seriously excited to see a pop of pinks and oranges within the palette as I don't own any like them. I couldn't choose a favourite shade as I pretty much love them all, which is very rare for me to find in an eyeshadow palette. I always seem to be reaching for the same shades though. I like to apply burnt orange and realgar through the crease, love letter in the inner lid and outer v, with primavera in the centre, creating a halo effect. Then combining realgar and love letter on the lower lash line with tempera in the inner corners. It looks seriously beautiful. I have had so many comments on my eye makeup when doing this particular eye look. You can create endless looks with the palette, from a nice nude daytime look to a bright night time look. It's so versatile.
Every single shade is so buttery and creamy with a seriously good punch of pigmentation. Now that's saying a lot as some matte eyeshadows tend to go crumbly and patchy, although I have to admit you can get quite a bit of fall out so I always do my eye makeup first. They blend out easily without going sheer and losing their colour too, which some eyeshadows can do. They are such high quality. I can't fault them.
Top to Bottom; Realgar, Warm Taupe, Venetian Red, Red Ochre, Primavera, Burnt Orange, Raw Sienna, Cyprus Umber, Love Letter, Antique Bronze, Buon Fresco, Vermeer, Golden Ochre, Tempera
The packaging is visually stunning too and compares to the likes of the original Urban Decay Naked Palette. It's cardboard with the most soft, lilac suede exterior, with the words 'Modern Renaissance' and rose gold ABH signage. Inside the palette, as with most of the ABH palettes boasts a dual ended brush, which is surprisingly good quality, and a mirror, although I don't tend to use it.
It is quite the investment retailing at £41($42) but I personally think it's worth it. The eyeshadows are top notch and almost too gorgeous to use. It is super popular at the moment that I can't find a UK site that has it in stock but you can join the waitlist at Cult Beauty here or purchase directly from ABH here where it is actually in stock.
