Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette Review


Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 plus tax) includes 14 eye shadows that comes with warm neutrals/red. It is mostly  matte palette easy to apply on bare skin. I also very easy to blend. These  formulations are not patchy at all,  not only that it adheres well to bare skin without sheering. The vast majority of the shades were very pigmented and wore it for couple of hours. The package is velvety pink and very appealing to the eyes.

Tempera -   is a light beige with  a satin sheen. It was incredibly soft and silky with great color payoff that applied well without sheering out too easily.

Golden Ochre - is medium dark yellow with mostly matte finish, the texture is very dusty but, good pigmentation that can be applied well and blended easily.

Vermeer - is bright with warm undertones and frosted sheen. The consistency was very soft and smooth which resulted from excess products to fall out on its pan.

Buon Fresco - is muted brown with a matte finish,  although the texture was a little powdery it had a good pigmentation.  

Antique Bronze-   is a slightly muted, dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a smooth, lightly dusty consistency that feels or looks  dry on the skin.

Love Letter -    dark berry, with subtle cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It has good pigmentation, though not fully opaque in one go, that was buildable on the lid. More importantly, it blends very well and fairly easily on bare skin (and even better over a primer, of course) and didn’t become uneven or turn patchy. The texture is  not quite as compared to some of the other, lighter matte shades in the palette. 

Cyprus Umber -  is deep, taupe brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft consistency that felt very smooth but did not sheer out too much when applied to bare skin. 

Raw Sienna-  a light medium brown with warm, golden undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had a really soft, smooth, and silky consistency that was blendable on the skin with very  opaque coverage without having to pile it on. 

Burnt Orange-  medium orange-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, very lightly dusty consistency that was more like the texture I expect with Anastasia’s more neutral-hued mattes, but it wasn’t quite as silky as other shades in the palette .

Primavera-   is a light peachy gold with warm undertones and a frosted, lightly metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a soft, lightly dusty consistency–it was a little drier compared to other shades–but applied well without having to work at it. 

Red Ochre-  medium dark reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi opaque pigmentation with a very silky-smooth texture that blended out really easily but  it is best built up in order to get true color.

Venetian Red-   a medium dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. This shade is one of my favorite  in the palette, though it wasn’t firm or stiff in the pan but it is buildable and is good for a vampy look.

Warm Taupe-   a medium, taupe-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth, blendable, and easy to use the richness of its colored paid off.

Realgar-  a slightly  dark orange brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish there was lightly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a very smooth, silky texture that didn’t get too dusty or too powdery nor did it sheer out when I applied it to the lid.

Overall, this is an amazing palette worth the price.

I have posted pictures with and without a flash and see the colors how it look in the bare skin. I am not affliated with ABH company I purchase this stunning product with my own money.
