No Sugar Coating: ABH Eye Shadow Palette

A finished client.

A finished client.

Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of my top brands when it comes to makeup, however, just like everything else, it can disappoint fans sometimes. Not long ago, Anastasia Beverly Hills released the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. The palette is presented as an essential eyeshadow collection with fourteen shades, including neutral and berry tones. Includes a double-ended shadow brush. Crease and fade resistant formula stays put for hours. Mirrored compact slides easily into your bag for on-the-go application.  The Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette has a 4.8/5 stars on both Sephora and Ulta Beauty. The palette goes for an easy $42.

First impression of the palette is that it is completely stunning. The packaging is gorgeous: light pink with a velvety top and a compact mirror. However, the case is cheap cardboard and I’m not a big fan of it since it’s not as durable. The palette comes with a double sided eye shadow brush. I tend to never use the brush that come with palettes; Anastasia Beverly Hill brushes are a huge exception though. Anastasia Beverly Hills eye shadow brushes never fail.

Now, time to use it. I did a couple of swatches and was highly impressed. The colors were so pigmented that with only one swatch I got a very vibrant color. When applying it on my client, the color went on smoothly and blended easily. Before applying the shadow on my client, I prepped her eye with primer. Usually primer can only do so much. The eye shadow stayed put for a whooping six hours. I would totally recommend the eye shadows for a day with bad weather or for a busy person because it is long lasting.  One very negative aspect of the palette would have to be fallout (when particles from the product have fallen onto other parts of your face; can be very messy.) When using Modern Renaissance, tapping the brush after picking product up is essential in order to get the most out of the palette.

All in all, the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette is a makeup product I would highly recommend and for sure gets the No Sugar Coating seal of approval. Besides the cheap compact case and the excess fallout, the palette makes up for this with the high pigmentation, longevity, and beautiful range of shades.

Available at: All major makeup outlets (Sephora, Ulta, etc.)

Price: $42
