Anastasia Beverly Hills | Modern Renaissance Palette

I have a confession: I’m typically not one to buy into the hype of most social media-driven beauty products. Yes, I said it. So when I find a gem that I can’t help but glamlust over. . .then naturally, I have to blog about it!

This particular ‘gem’ is the Modern Renaissance palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Launched this past summer, ‘Modern Renaissance’ was added to the ABH collection as their first non-limited edition eyeshadow palette. As the name suggests, it’s inspired by paint colors used in much of the artwork of the Renaissance period. The theme is actually what drew me to this palette initially – the colors are just so beautiful! Don’t let the red and berry shadows intimidate you; the color range is actually quite versatile. (Creating a natural eye look is effortless with the first quad on the far left) I’ve practically used it every day since I bought it a month ago.

Inside the suede baby pink casing are 14 shadows, ranging from soft neutrals to the bold pops of color you’ll see below. The pigmentation and texture are superb, even for the lighter shades and shimmers. They blend beautifully and last all day. A considerable amount of product lifts when dipping your brush in the pans, but for me, it wasn’t a major drawback.

Overall, I’m so impressed with the Modern Renaissance palette! Honestly, I was a bit apprehensive to purchase it after trying the Master Palette by Mario. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I’ve been enjoying this one. I would definitely recommend giving it a try if you’re on the fence!

  1. Hi! I loved the post, i’m obssessed with the pallette too. I was wondering if your brush came with the anastasia logo or the name, because mine didn’t and I’m scared its a fake!

    1. Hi, Camila!

      Thank you for leaving a comment; I’m so glad you enjoyed my review! Yes, my brush does have the brand name stamped on it. I would definitely recommend purchasing the palette directly from the ABH site or any of the retailers I mentioned in the post (Macy’s, Sephora, Ulta), so that you don’t have to worry about authenticity :)
