Eyeshadow palettes are my weakness, I admit. It does not matter if I have too little or too much – an eyeshadow palette is always welcome to my makeup collection. Yet, I rarely buy high end makeup but this time, I really couldn’t resist.
In my makeup drawer sits a couple of products by Anastasia Beverly Hills – brow definer, brow gel and a glow kit – and the quality is amazing but although they already have a few eye shadow palettes, I never felt like I needed to have any, until this cute one came around.
If you are a social media addict like I am, you have probably seen this palette all over instagram as well as YouTube and while at first I did not know if I would give that much use to such warm toned, berry shades, my opinion easily changed when seeing many makeup looks created with this palette and all of them so different and beautiful. This is definitely a very versatile palette and worth every penny.
Lets talk about the packaging – the colour is a beautiful pale pink, very girly and with a felt/velvet material. Although it does look really pretty and chic, it does tend to get dirty easily if you are not extra careful (like I am trying to be). It has a magnetic closure and a good size mirror on the inside, which is a plus for me. It also comes with a double sided brush that is actually very good quality.
Now the eye shadows are something from another level. For someone like me that is only used to have drugstore palettes, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette is a gift from heaven. Yes, you can find very good drugstore eye shadows but once you step up to high end makeup, there is no turning back. This palette as a total of 14 eye shadows and retails for £41, which is a very fair price for the quality and amount of product you get.
These eye shadows are indeed very pigmented and buttery but are also very powdery, if you don’t dust away the excess product, you will definitely have a lot of fall out but that isn’t something that puts me off. All of the eye shadows are so easy to blend and there is a mix of berry and nude/brown tones giving you a lot of options and inspiration for many looks.
I really don’t have any regrets on adding this palette to my makeup collection. The quality of the product and the endless looks you can create with it is totally worth the price. If you keep an eye out, you might be lucky enough just like I was and find a 15% discount code either at CultBeauty or Beauty Bay.
I’ll leave you with the first look I have created with this palette, let me know what you think and if this is a palette that is currently on your wishlist.
