Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette Review by Georgia B.

About The Brand

Global cosmetics brand Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded in 1997 by Anastasia Soare. The company’s products are sold at Sephora, Ulta and on their website. Anastasia beauty products are cruelty-free and is known for many best selling products including Dip Brow, Brow Wiz, Glow Kit and now, my latest obsession, Modern Renaissance.


The packaging of the Modern Renaissance eye shadow palette is classy and elegant. It has a light pink suede-like material on the outside of the packaging. On the front, there are white letters pressed down into the cover and the brand name is highlighted in rose gold. The palette includes a good-sized mirror and a magnetic closure. The shadows inside are also labeled in rose gold making the palette very appealing to the eye. The only problem I foresee with the packaging is that the palette might get dirty quickly given the light colored fabric on the outside.

With the color range in this eye shadow palette, you can create many looks.  The palette includes oranges, fire truck reds, light pinks, golden colors, browns, and whites. There are shimmers and mattes. The colors span a broad spectrum from light to dark. This makes the palette usable for day and night.

Colour = 4 ½ out of 5



There are 14 different eye shadow colours in this palette. The shadows are creamy and silky. There is a bit of fall out when you use the shadows, but with a primer, it makes it a lot better. These shadows are so so so soft it is unbelievable, and they are super pigmented.

This palette retails for $55 Canadian. That means each eye shadow has a value of around $3.93. Each eyeshadow has 0.02 oz of product. This means a total amount of product of 0.28 oz in the palette.  Every 0.02 oz is worth $3.93. Which for a high-end eye shadow is worth it. A single Anastasia eyeshadow is $16 Canadian and has 0.059 oz. In general, eye shadow pallets are the way to go rather than single eye shadows. Even though you might think you are getting a lot of product in a palette, in reality, the eye shadows are usually quite thin.

My Opinion

Overall, I believe this palette is a necessity for every makeup lover like myself. It is a very versatile eye shadow palette which makes it perfect for everyone. Plus, the eye shadows are incredibly silky. I think it’s worth every penny.
