Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palette – Modern Renaissance

posted in: Makeup | 9

Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of those brands that you know you can trust when it comes to eyeshadow palettes. Their eyeshadow palettes are some of the most spoken about palettes on the internet and surprise, I’m a huge fan! The ABH Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette is described as a must-have palette. Let’s find out if that’s true!

ABH Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

Like all Anastasia Beverly Hills products, the packaging will not let you down. It is a pretty pale pinky colour with their logo at the bottom, it’s classy and elegant in true Anastasia Beverly Hills fashion. The eyeshadow palette is of great quality and it has the luxurious factor too. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a bit of lux?!

It also comes with a double-ended makeup brush. I don’t usually love the brushes that come with eyeshadow palettes, but this one is ok and it makes the palette ideal for travelling with. The palette comes with a full-sized mirror inside which is always a brownie point! It makes the palette that much more practical.

That’s all very nice but, in reality, it’s the inside that we care about! Well, you won’t be disappointed! The colours are spectacular and I love the colour range! The Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow palette comes with 14 beautiful shades of which 11 are matte, 2 are metallic and one is satin. Beautiful, beautiful and beautiful!

The Shades

The shades are all really pretty with versatile colours varying from beige, earthy tones to raspberry, crimson and orange colours. I am obsessed with the colour combinations that you can make. Romantic, dreamy and there’s enough there for a bold look too. Add a splash of burnt orange or bright pink and you will make a statement!

I’m all about saving money and what makes the Modern Renaissance palette great, is that the colours fit every season. This makes it an all year round eyeshadow palette, not only that, but you can also use this palette for every occasion, be it in everyday or evening wear.

A pretty unique feature that I discovered with this palette is that the colours match every skin tone. I am very pale and the colours complement my skin wonderfully, and I have friends who have darker skin tones and it looks great on them too.

Testing the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette

If you want pigmented eyeshadow then you need to try this palette. The colours are extremely pigmented to the point that swiping the shades with my fingers left me with very colourful hands! When looking for eyeshadows this is probably the most important feature to look out for. After all, if the eyeshadows aren’t pigmented, usually they’re not very long-wearing.

However, you shouldn’t take it for granted that highly pigmented eyeshadows are guaranteed to stay on well, because that’s not always the case. Many eyeshadow palettes have the issue of fallout, and many simply don’t stay on well. This eyeshadow palette, however, lasts amazingly. So many people have commented on how long-wearing the Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette is and how it lasted them all day without any creasing. This is a big feat in the eyeshadow world!

The colours blend beautifully and are extremely easy to apply like I already mentioned, they have very little fallout. If you’re short on time this is a great palette because the blending is so easy and doesn’t take much time or effort. Once wearing, it feels very soft on your skin. Don’t forget before you apply your eyeshadow to apply a primer, all makeup stays on with a primer no matter how good the eyeshadow is! Read my review on why everyone needs the Mac Prep and Prime eyeshadow primer.

The only downside for me is that the eyeshadow brush that it comes with could be improved a little. Brushes that come with makeup like eyeshadow palettes never really live up to the palettes themselves. A bit of a shame but it definitely doesn’t take away from the fact that this is one epic eyeshadow palette!

My Thoughts

Do I think this Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palette is worth all the hype? Absolutely YES!! This palette is a must-have and it will become one of your makeup staples. The eyeshadows are extremely high quality and there are few eyeshadow palettes out there that can compete with the quality and pigmentation of this eyeshadow palette.

    I always wanted to buy this palette because of the amazing colors it has for various looks. I have been drooling over them for a while now and I’m finally planning to buy them.
    The palette has these beautiful colors and after reading your review I think I’m going to get them. Thanks.

    This palette of eye shadows looks gorgeous. I usually wear only one color all the time but you are definitely tempting me to become more of a fashionista when it comes to eyeshadow.
    You stated that this color palette is long lasting. I was wondering if it caked or creased. This is the main reason I don’t use a lot of eye makeup. I cannot Stand when I I close my eyes and there is a crease of eyeshadow! How many hours would you say that it lasts?

      It definitely is long-lasting for eyeshadows. It lasts around 8 hours- obviously this depends on your skin type. A lot of people found this eyeshadow not to crease. However, like you my eyeshadow often creases which I can’t stand. I started using an AMAZING primer by Urban Decay which keeps it from creasing every time. One of my best investments! Good Luck!

    This eye shadow palette looks really interested. I do not really use these colours, but maybe now is the time to branch out and try a whole different spectrum!

    I also notice that in the comments you recommend the primer from Urban Decay – that certainly sounds as though it is worth a trial!

    Very many thanks for your really helpful information.

    Chrissie 🙂

      The Urban Decay primer keeps all my eye makeup in place! I can’t recommend it enough:)

    The colors look so vibrant. The eyeshadow appears to be of good quality. You are spot on. The product seems to be worth the price. To bad about the brush not living up to it though. The eyeshadow seems amazing. This is a got to have. You did a great job on reviewing the product.
