The Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Palette in Modern Renaissance has been all over social media recently. It seems like everyone is talking about it so I had to get in on it too:) It is described as the MUST HAVE eyeshadow palette. Lets find out if this is true!
What’s in the palette?
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow palette comes with 14 beautiful shades of which 11 are matte and 3 are metallic. It comes with a double ended shadow brush. The packaging is really pretty and it comes with a mirror inside which is always really useful:)
The colours are all really pretty and versatile colours varying from beige, earthy tones to raspberry, crimson and orange colours. What’s great about the colours is that they fit every season which makes it an all year round eyeshadow palette. You can use this palette for everyday wear or evening wear. I love palettes that can be worn for every occasion. It makes it so much easier for travelling with or long days out when you want to take with you the least possible belongings. What I also love about the colours is that I find they match every skin tone. I am very pale and the colours complement my skin perfectly as they do to darker skin tones too.
Using the palette
What struck me first about this palette is that the eyeshadows are extremely pigmented. If you swipe your finger across one of the colours your finger will have a LOT of eyeshadow on it. When looking for eyeshadows this is probably the most important feature to look out for. After all, if the eyeshadows aren’t pigmented, usually it’s 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. This eyeshadow palette, however, lasts amazingly. So many people have commented how long-wearing this palette is and how it lasted them all day without any creasing. This is a big feat in the eyeshadow world!
Another thing that I noticed almost immediately was how easy it is to blend the colours and how smoothly they apply. 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.
The only complaint I have is that the brush that came with it is not so great. To me it’s a bit superfluous and lowers the quality of the overall eyeshadow palette.
Do I think this Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palette is worth all the hype? Absolutely YES!! This palette is a must have. The eyeshadows are of very high quality- there are few eyeshadow palettes out there that can compete with the quality and pigmentation of this eyeshadow palette.
If you have this palette I’d love to hear your experience with it. Did you find it better than other eyeshadow palettes? Was it the must have palette for you? Looking forward to hearing from you in the comments below:)
