I’m sure you are aware that there is ALWAYS a waiting list on Cult Beauty for this palette, an ACTUAL WAITING LIST, which all the VIP beauty guru’s get their hands on first. I’d seen so so many dreamy Instagram pictures of this palette, leaving me with a desire to get my hands on one. AND I DID!
I don’t think I have ever been this excited to receive a product in the post! I was checking my emails every 2 minutes (literally), to see if the tracker said the courier had received the parcel yet. I think we’ve already gathered that my opinions on this product are going to be 11/10 but let’s going into it anyway:
The outside of the palette is the cutest light pink shade, reminds me of sweeties, candy floss and all things magical. What could be better, ay? I’m also a little bit obsessed with the gold font the shade names are printed in, it looks so sheek and sassy.
I’m used to using Make Up Revolution eyeshadow palettes a lot, which requires you to rub your brush around in the shadow, to get a decent amount on the brush. I started off like this with Modern Renaissance, OH BLIMEY, MY BRUSH WAS FILLED WITH PRODUCT, I had to tap a lot off (learnt from my mistake). You only need the tiniest amount of shadow on your brush to get a HELLA PIGMENTED LOOK! Definitely, makes it worth the money as even with everyday use it would last a heck of a long time.
What drew me into buying this palette was the vast range of dark pink, red and orange shades, which you just can’t find in any other palette (at least at good quality). I love how there is a mix of matte and shimmery shades, makes it wearable for day to day use and for a night out, where you want to look all glowed up. My current FAV SHADES would have to be Red Ochre (a burnt red) and Love Letter (a bright dark pink).
The modern renaissance palette comes with an Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow brush. The smaller brush end is for applying the colour and the larger brush end is for blending. The only downside I can state is that the larger brush end feels slightly rough on your skin, maybe that’s me just having really sensitive skin. I prefer to use the Real Techniques eyeshadow brush to blend the colour out as it feels softer on my lid.
FIRST ROW/ TOP TO BOTTOM: CYPRUS UMBER, LOVE LETTER, ANTIQUE BRONZE, BUON FRESCO, VERMEER, GOLDEN OCHRE AND TEMPERA.
SECOND ROW/ TOP TO BOTTOM: REALGAR, WARM TAUPE, VENETIAN RED, RED OCHRE, PRIMAVERA, BURNT ORANGE AND RAW SIENNA.
WOULD I BUY AGAIN?
YES OF COURSE! I know its early days but I feel like I can already say that this palette is going to be my FAV MAKE UP PRODUCT OF 2017! I’m pretty sure this palette is going to last me the whole year if not longer with how pigmented the shadows are, so so worth splashing out £41.
Have you tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette, if so what did you think of it?
