Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Beverly Hills has been a long time favourite brand of mine. Basically every product they make is pure genius and absolutely worth every penny. This eyeshadow palette is no different. Package wise it’s a pink velvet case embossed with white letters for the palette name and rose gold for the brand name. Flip it open and there’s a mirror, a brush, and fourteen eyeshadows located inside. The eyeshadow descriptions are listed down below so I won’t waste time on that. This palette is a warm toned, red hued palette that is just gorgeous. The eyeshadows themselves are incredibly pigmented and blend out with minimal effort required. My favourite thing about ABH shadows is that I never need a primer, they show up well, due to being highly pigmented, and never crease on me.This palette retails for $55.00 (Canadian) at Sephora.

Product Description:

What it is:
An essential eye shadow collection with 14 shades in neutral to berry tones.

What it does:
A present-day take on Renaissance colors, this eye palette features 14 shades that let you create stylish, day to night looks. From the earthy yellow and ultra-matte finish of Golden Ochre to Primavera’s shimmer gold with a metallic finish, this palette’s high-pigment shadows are crease and fade-resistant and are sure to bring modern elegance to your eye looks.

This palette contains:
– 14 x 0.02 oz Eye shadow in Tempera (beige with an ultra-matte finish), Golden Ochre (earthy yellow with an ultra-matte finish), Vermeer (iridescent shell with a metallic finish), Buon Fresco (antique lavender with an ultra-matte finish), Antique Bronze (metallic sable with a satin finish), Love Letter (raspberry with an ultra-matte finish), Cyprus Umber (dark coffee with an ultra-matte finish), Raw Sienna (neutral amber with an ultra-matte finish), Burnt Orange deep orange with an ultra-matte finish), Primavera (shimmery gold with an ultra-matte finish), Red Ochre (sienna with an ultra-matte finish), Venetian Red (crimson with an ultra-matte finish), Warm Taupe (earthy gray with an ultra-matte finish), Realgar (brick with an ultra-matte finish)
– Double-ended shadow brush

Pros:

  1. Variety of shades, this palette makes it easy to create a full eye look only using one palette
  2. Warm toned, very flattering on many skin tones and my favourite for fall/winter
  3. Pigmented, takes very little product to get a highly pigmented look. Also means, this palette will last you a long time
  4. Fade and crease resistant, these look the exact same at the end of the day as they do at the beginning
  5. Price, for $55.00 (Canadian) you get fourteen eyeshadows with each containing 0.02oz of product

Cons:

  1. If you’re not a fan of red/orange eyeshadow shades this may not be for you, as this palette consists mainly of them
  2. Fall out, on some of the darker shades I notice a bit of fall out due to how pigmented they are. You win some, you lose some
  3. Packaging, the velvet seems to pick up absolutely everything. Minor con but slightly annoying
