Review & Swatch: Modern Renaissance by Anastasia Beverly Hills

The long awaited review on the Modern Renaissance palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. I have used this for a month experimenting and playing around with the shadows available on the palette. Here are my thoughts so far.

Shade range:

The colours range from pinks to browns. If you are fonder of a neutral palette, then I wouldn’t recommend this palette for you. The colours have a range of mattes and glitter shadows which apply lovely to the eye and blend very easily. I do enjoy the colour range however being used to neutral palettes I’m scared of touching the pinks and vivid colours available.


I purchased this palette for only £41.00 on Cult Beauty. Other sites range from the same price.


The packaging is lined with velvet which has an expensive feel towards the product so you don’t feel like you are losing out on the money. Inside the packaging has a mirror and 14 colours are available in the palette.


The formula of the colours has smooth and silky. The shadows apply nice with both a brush and fingers. The pigmentation is really strong however the colour comes out based on how your skin is. As my skin is a light medium tone the lighter colour won’t pay off as much as the darker and brighter colours available in the palette.

Best applied with:

  • Crease: Morphe MB23
  • Outer Crease: Morphe M504 brush
  • Preferably I like to apply the glitter shadow with my finger on the centre on my lid.
  • Inner corner: Crown detail brush


Overall, I am happy with the product. Although this palette is out of my comfort zone having owned mainly neutral palette. I do like this palette to experiment with different sorts of colours as however I’m not sure if I were to ever use some of the colours. Even though this is a beautiful palette I do feel it is overhyped by the blogger world, hence buying it seemed to be a must.


Please keep in mind the shades may be different on other skin tones.

Only three places I have found that sell Anastasia Beverly Hills in the UK, however they are only online shops.
