Review| Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

Hello my lovelies,

This palette has been

reviewed to high heaven and I have seen so many bloggers talk about this, I thought it was about time I gave my opinion. ABH is a brand that until I brought this palette I had never ventured into before. I’m not sure why maybe because it wasn’t readily available or because it didn’t seem that interesting and mainly sold eyebrow products. When I discovered Cult Beauty I saw this palette, looked at it and thought I want that. It is one of the most expensive palettes I have ever purchased and I thought it was about time to let you know whether it is worth the splurge.

I brought the palette to broaden my horizons in eyeshadow, for me I always stick to the same colours – the nudes with a bit of glitter in my eyes it can’t go wrong. I knew I needed to mix it up and I thought why not spend lots of money on colours that I may or may not like, smart! The packaging was the first thing that drew my eye to it who doesn’t want this pinky/purple palette in their collection. It’s suede feeling which is nice and white writing. Simple yet effective! However, although it looks nice it’s a bugger to keep clean as you can tell from my photo.

It’s not travel friendly in that way and it is really annoying me because I don’t know how to keep it clean. Its sturdy but not practical for heavy handed people like me. You may or may not care about this but it’s good to bear in mind. Personally I don’t mind it just ruins the aesthetics a little but I can see past that. The major plus is that you open it up and is has a mirror – I’m sold on this point alone. I hate palettes that don’t have a mirror – extremely unhelpful.

Now onto the eye shadows themselves. The palette is a mix of beautiful brown shades along with glitter AND orange and pink shades. At first the whole pink shade scared me, how do you even begin to pull this off. I don’t want to look like a 10 year old trying make up for the first time. I will be honest and say I didn’t use them for a few months BUT I watched a few tutorials and I was sold I can now wear pink eyeshadow and for it to look half decent!

You can really create so many different looks in this palette, it’s so versatile which is what I love about it. Whether you want a natural look or all out smokey there is something for everyone and every occasion. The shadows themselves are AMAZING, a lot better than Urban Decay I really think they are the best I have ever tried. They are pigmented, easily blendable, creamy and zero fall out. What more could you want? Every single shade I have used in this palette and this is something I very rarely find with a palette. I always end up leaving a few that just aren’t my cup of tea but not this selection.

I’m just in love and actually I don’t really have a bad word to say about this product. Apart from the packaging that isn’t travel friendly but hey nothing is perfect. I don’t regret a single penny I spent on this, it’s absolutely beautiful and I know I will be using this for a long time. I really understand why people adore this because I feel exactly the same. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone I just can’t explain my love. This really is a game changer in the world of eyeshadow. I never thought anything could top Urban Decay shadows but I really was wrong.

ABH is a brand that I will be definitely be taking more seriously in the beauty world. I really do need to try out more of their products because it isn’t anything like this eye shadow palette I feel like I’m going to love a lot more. Let me know what you would recommend for me! Also let me know if you have this palette and what you think of it! I picked my palette up from Cult Beauty
