There has been some exciting palette launches the month. And as soon as I’d heard about the about them i sat and patiantly wanted, bank card in hand, for their Uk launch. So here I am with the these to beauties!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette | £41
As soon as I see pictures of this palette I knew I had to have it. 14 beautiful warmed toned shadows all in one palette, I just couldn’t say no. And I’m not disappointed. All the shadows, with the exception of Love Letter, that one is slightly gritty, are buttery soft and really pack a punch in terms of pigment! The shades are:
Tempera – A pale creamy Beige with a matte finish. I really like this an eye shadow base. It also makes a stunning matte highlighter.
Golden Ochre – A Yellow, Beige colour with a matte finish. The swatch didn’t pick up well on camera but it translates well on the eyes.
Vemeer – A pale Pink with a shimmer finish. This is incredibly soft and pigmented! This works well as a highlight or all over the lid.
Buon Fresco – A matte Lilac.
Antique Bronze – This a stunning dark Brown with a Golden Cranberry shimmer. This is a beautiful lid colour.
Love Letter – This is slightly grittier than the other shades, but it still blends well and is well pigmented. The shade is a very bright Raspberry Pink.
Cyprus Umber – A matte Chocolate Brown. This is soft and I did notice a bit of fall out with this in particular but nothing I can’t live with.
Raw Sienna – A warm, mid toned, matte Brown. This makes an excellent crease colour.
Burnt Orange – This a warm Orange with a matte finish. This is one of my favourite shades! I like to use it in the crease.
Primavera – A champagned toned shimmer. Another one of my favourites. This looks stunning all over the lid.
Red Ochre – A deep Red colour. This is perfect for adding more warmth to an eye look, and in the outter v. I also really like it on the lower lash line.
Venetian Red – is a beautiful Cranberry colour with subtle shimmers running through it.
Warm Taupe – The name is very apt, its a warm, matte Taupe colour. This is another great crease shade.
Realgar – A strange Burnt Orange. Another great crease shade.
All these beautiful shades are housed in sturdy cardboard packaging with a mirror. The outside of the packaging is velvet, similar to the Naked 1 palette, which is ok but I feel like this gets dirty really easily and is difficult to clean. But the shades are so pretty I can live with it. Overall, I love this palette. I was blown away by the quality of the shadows and its started some kind Anastasia Beverly Hills obsession. I now want to try everything from the brand!
