So recently when browsing the pages of Cult Beauty online I came across the new summer release by Anastasia Beverly Hills in the form of the stunning Modern Renaissance palette. This palette contains 15 shades, mostly gorgeous warm rich tones – apparently inspired by the Renaissance paintings of the past.
The outside of the palette itself is a gorgeous pink colours and feels weighty and secure – it is covered in a pink felt material making the entire thing feeling very sumptuous. I also love the side of this palette – you get a lot inside but it still feels compact enough to travel with. Inside the colours are mostly matte shades, with two shimmers and are in the warmer tones overall.
In the first instance you may think this palette looks a little intimidating and not wearable on a daily basis – with some brighter reddy, orange and even pink tones – but I promise you it is easy to make some incredible, wearable looks using an excellent range of colours. I have created both a smokey sunset coloured eye and a more neutral warm golden toned eye (see pictured below) which I wore to work and received many compliments on both!
What I will say is a slight draw back to this palette is the shadows themselves are very crumbly – even the lightest touch leavers a lot of excess powder in the palette and on your brush – I would recommend tapping your brush off or you may get fall out on your cheeks – which is a bit of a pain with the brighter shades. But once on the eye all shades are wonderfully pigmented and creamy and super easy to apply and blend, so perfect for those who are still learning to get their blend perfect!
I paid £42 for this palette and I do think for the range of shades you get it is worth the money – I have found myself reaching for this almost every day recently.
Have you bought this palette and tried out some daring eye looks? I would love to see them!
Until next time xxx
