Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

Version 2

Hi guys! Today I thought I would share with you my first impressions, swatches and look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette! While this palette has been out for quite a few months now, it’s new to me. I knew this palette one day had to me mine after how hard I fell in love with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette. The shadow quality in that palette knocked my socks off.

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette is mainly a warm toned palette, with a few cool shades added in to balance it out. It contains both fourteen eye shadows which contain mattes and shimmers. As long as these shades appeal to you, you have everything you need for several different looks in one place. While this palette had a summer release, it mostly screams “fall” to me (though I would wear these shades all year round).


The shadow quality itself is excellent. It reminds me of my beloved Self-Made Palette so I am one happy camper. The shadows kick off some dust so you just need to make sure you tap off your brush before application to avoid fall-out. All of the shades I’ve used to date are pigmented and very much blendable which makes application a breeze.

I can’t wait to do more looks with this palette for you, but here is the first one that I did! I’ve done a few others but since it’s so dark in the mornings it isn’t ideal for photos. This is the look I wore out for dinner on my birthday last weekend!

As you can see, these eye shadows blended so beautifully together. I barely had to do anything to have them blend! Although I passed on the Master Palette by Mario (it went out of stock and I took that as a sign that I don’t need it, haha), I can’t wait to see what else Anastasia Beverly Hills comes out with for eye shadow palettes. I’m definitely deeply in love with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette!

  3. This does registers as an “Autumn” palette to me too. The look you’ve created looks lovely!
    The last eye shadows I’ve really enjoyed are the Teeez duochrome ones. Not sure if you have Teeez at the Bay where you are but give them a look. They’re in these little orbs:

      We actually don’t have the Bay here, our department store in our mall in Sears 👎 I’ve seen quite a few rave reviews on Teeez though so they are on my radar 🙂

  4. Jordan picked up this palette for me as a Christmas gift and I can’t wait to get my hands on it! Love the colours and the look you created!

  5. Happy belated birthday!
    This palette is so you, and I love this look on you! You’re right, the shades are very autumnal. I picked up the Master Palette by Mario during the VIB sale. Haven’t used it yet, but I’m excited to try it!

      Thank you!! Ooh that’s exciting! I’ve heard so many great things about that palette. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it! 😀

  6. […] Normally on a day like this I may not even bother with foundation and just use either a BB cream or just some concealer, but my skin has been breaking out lately so I wanted to at least cover it up a bit. I did use less product than I use on a normal day. I like adding a bit of colour to my cheeks so even on a quick day, blush and highlighter remain a staple. This whole look took me… maybe 5 to 10 minutes total. And, as you can see, I’m still in love with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. […]
