Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette Review and Swatches

Anastasia Beverly Hills very recently launched a new eye shadow palette. 

I was a little hesitant on purchasing this because I've purchased a couple of her other eye shadow palettes and didn't love them. 

The palette packaging is a standard cardboard package and has a velvety like texture. I love the mauve color.

The palette is $42 and features fourteen eyeshadows! They're not very large shadows but you are getting fourteen. I think it's a very good price point! 

The other palettes I had of hers I didn't love because I felt like the shadows were very difficult to blend and were chalky.

I wanted to give the Modern Renaissance a try because the colors just looked beautiful! 

I have used this a lot times over the past couple weeks and love it! I know she reformulated her shadows so maybe that's why I like it now? 

The shadows did kick up quite a bit of dust and I did get some fallout but all the shadows built up nicely and evenly. I used some of the mattes all over the lid and didn't get any patchiness. 

They all blended nicely. 

I love all of the shades in the palette but I think we could have gone without two of the shades as they look so close to other shades in the palette. Love Letter and Venetian Red are so close in color except ones matte and the other has shimmer. Raw Sienna and Burnt Orange are also very close in color. I get the color palette they were going for but I do think they could have gone with a couple other shades in the same color family to compliment the palette. Just my opinion though. 

I am really glad I went ahead and purchased this palette because I have been loving it!! 

Let's ignore my brows that need to be cleaned up! Lol

L to R
Tempera, Golden Ochre, Vermeer, Buon Fresco, Antique Bronze, Love Letter, and Cyprus Umber.
Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Venetian Red, Warm Taupe, and Realgar.

These eye shadows will flatter all skin tones! I definitely think this palette is a must have! 

The good news is this eyeshadow palette is going to be permanent so purchase it at your convenience! 

You can find this at your nearest Sephora, Ulta, or online for $42.

I never cared for her other palettes. I think I'll give it a try since they reformulated it. I like the eye look you did!

Thank you! I didn't like them either but this one definitely is a winner! They are very powdery/dusty when you dip your brush into them but the pigmentation is really good! I think you'll like it!
