Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette Review

Say hello to the only palette you will ever need.
Nothing has topped this palette ever since I bought it all of those months ago. As soon as I saw it and I saw the matte hot pink shades I knew I wanted it. No, not wanted it, I needed it. And wow, was it hard to get. It sold out as soon as it went live on the Cult Beauty website and it seemed to never come back in stock. I wanted it so badly that I tried to get it sent to me from Sephora in America but if I begrudge spending £3.99 on delivery here in the UK then I'm sure as hell not willing to spend over £60 shipping a couple of eyeshadow palettes, even if they will come all the way across the ocean! So I decided to wait a little longer and goodness me, receiving that email informing me that the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette had come back into stock felt like Christmas Day to me. 

About the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette:
"Quite possibly the most-coveted eyeshadow palette yet, Modern Renaissance features 14, highly-pigmented powders in a rainbow of pinks, taupes and berries. With 11 matte and 3 metallic shadows, alongside a dual-ended soft bristle brush for seamless application and diffusion, the versatile palette is a thing of beauty and a joy to use - perfecting for creating an array of day-to-evening make up looks."

I don't really need to tell how you fabulous the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette is as I think you can see for yourself from the images plastered everywhere of this incredibly popular palette. Featuring hot berry tones, warm brick shades and an iridescent champagne pink, I can't think of one shade within the 14 shade palette which I wouldn't use, nor could I think of a shade I would have liked to have been included. I am confident when I say that when you have this palette, you will not need anything else. When I use this gorgeous pale pink felt covered palette, I don't use anything else as everything I need is in this one palette. Each shade is strongly pigmented, incredibly soft which makes blending an utter dream - in fact, I would say my make-up looks better when I use these eyeshadows as they blend so well with very minimal fallout - and they stay all day long on the eyelids. I literally couldn't ask more from a palette and as strange as it sounds, I can actually see myself repurchasing it when I start hitting the bottom of the pan on some of my favourite shades as I can't bear to be without it. Don't get me wrong, at £41 it is pretty damn pricey but it is worth every damn penny.

My favourite shades within this palette are Tempera, a very matte neutral beige which makes for the most perfect base shade, Vermeer, a shimmery soft pink, Buon Fresco, a matte lavender, Burnt Orange, a deep matte orange, Red Ochre, a deep matte red, Venetian Red, a matte crimson, Realgar, a matte brick shade and finally, my one and only, Love Letter which is the most gorgeous matte raspberry. Never before had I thought I needed a bright raspberry pink matte eyeshadow but I was so wrong. I was surprised I could pull it off actually but wow, I am obsessed with it. It looks wonderful on top of Vermeer blended out into the crease with Venetian Red on the outer corners of the eye. I am not too experimental when it comes to colourful eyeshadows but this palette makes me want to wear the berry reds, the hot pinks and the oranges. It makes me think that I can achieve make-up only seen by beauty gurus on Instagram and for that, I love it.

Don't think about it, just buy it. You need the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette in your make-up collection. The reason why I started this blog was to share my thoughts and opinions on make-up and if out of everything I have reviewed and mentioned on this little space of the internet then I could not recommend this more. I want you all to buy it immediately and tell me later about how much you all love it.



  1. I love the Anastasia formula but I really don't now about all the warm shades for myself! It is such a beautiful palette, I love the velvet cover and the more neutral shades x

  3. I wish I had picked up this palette because although there are so many shades I already have in my collection, it's the bright orange and burgundy shades that I'm really drawn to in that palette! xx


  4. I heard so many things about this brand but I've never tried any of their products. This palette looks incredible. It has all the shades I currently use and all the ones I would like to experiment more with. Thank you for sharing. xx

  7. These shades are quite out there for me - I'm usually a stick to the trusty but beautiful golden/bronze classic shades - but I've read so many rave reviews and seen such beautiful swatches that I think I would love to try it! :)
