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!
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 feels like good quality and it has the luxurious factor to it. 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 products, 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 it the palette that much more practical.
That’s all very nice but, it’s the inside which really caught my eyes! The colours are spectacular. I love the colour choice! The Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow palette comes with 14 beautiful shades of which 11 are matte, 2 are metallic and one is satin.
The shades are all really beautiful with versatile colours varying from beige, earthy tones to raspberry, crimson and orange colours. I am obsessed with the colour combinations, you can make your eyes romantic, dreamy and there’s enough there for a boldness too. Add a splash of the bright 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 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 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. Many 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!

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.
