I recently purchased the drool-worthy Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette – now, if that isn’t a mouthful…
And the answer is yes, it is worth the hype and the price tag. This is palette is a DREAM. The colors appear to all be warm, berry tones, but there are a couple of cooler tones and the majority lean neutral. So, this baby will work for neutral lovers who are itching to get our of their comfort zone. Also, most of the colors are matte shades which I appreciate because I can get a little carried away with shimmers.
Blend-ability is fantastic (seriously, SO easy), pigmentation is unreal, and the only “con” I can think of is that the shades are so pigmented that they are a bit powdery and can have some fallout. I don’t mind at all, though. I also really enjoy the brush that comes with it!
The price of this palette is $42.00 and you get 14 shades. The price is much less than the Urban Decay Naked palettes and the quality is just as great, if not better.
Here’s a tutorial I filmed on a neutral, matte look with a cut crease. I intended for the look to be super simple and quick, but alas, a cut crease look was born. 😉
Hope you enjoy & thanks for reading/watching! xo
