Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

11th October 2018

I’ve had a weird relationship with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette. I originally bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette over a year ago and after using it a couple of times I decided I couldn’t make the shades work for me, so I gave it to my friend. However after trying and falling head over in heels in love with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette, I decided I needed the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette back in my life so I ordered via Feelunique.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

An essential eye shadow collection featuring fourteen shades, including full pigment neutral and berry tones with matte and metallic finishes. Highly-pigmented, easy-to-blend formula. Includes dual-ended brush and large mirror. 14 eye shadow shades including neutrals and pops of color. Palette features 3 metallic and 11 matte finishes.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette is packaged within cardboard casing just like the rest of the ABH eyeshadow palettes, and the Modern Renaissance Palette has a pale pink flocked velvet texture. The palette contains a mirror within the lid, and it comes with a dual ended eyeshadow brush; one side for laying down colour, and the opposite is a fluffy blending brush. The palette contains fourteen powder eyeshadows, each weighing 0.7g and is £43.

Raw Sienna – Neutral amber with an ultra-matte finish

Burnt Orange – Deep orange with an ultra-matte finish

Primavera – Shimmery gold dust with a metallic finish

Red Ochre – Sienna with an ultra-matte finish

Venetian Red – Crimson with an ultra-matte finish

Warm Taupe – Earthy gray with an ultra-matte finish

Realgar – Brick with an ultra-matte finish

As you can see the pigmentation is amazing, with intense colour and an extremely smooth texture which both swatches amazingly well and applies amazingly well too. The palette contains a good mix of mattes and shimmers although I do wish there were perhaps a shimmery pink or red shade to complement the mattes but I like the balance of lighter shades to deeper shades too.

My favourite shades within the palette would have to be Buon Fresco as it’s the perfect cool toned crease shade, Antique Bronze, Primavera and Red Ochre but there isn’t one shade I don’t like. The shades overall are mostly warm toned, but I appreciate that there’s a few cooler tones too for a nice balance.

I am so happy I repurchased this palette as I love it so much, and the Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow formula is one of my favourite shadow formulas alongside the Huda Beauty eyeshadow formula. The brush included within the palette is actually pretty decent, and I hope ABH decide to launch a range of makeup brushes other than brow brushes. Even though the shadows all have an extremely soft and buttery texture, they don’t create lots of fallout and I’m so excited about the launch of the Sultry palette as I bet it’ll work amazingly alongside the Modern Renaissance Palette.

Have you tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette?
