Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette Review, Swatches & Tutorial

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette packaging

Anastasia Beverly Hills has done it again. Recently, ABH released its latest addition to its popular eye shadow palettes - The Modern Renaissance palette. This warm rose neutral palette is a permanent palette for the makeup line. With the range of shades in the palette, it is equally pleasing for the neutral and colour lovers out there.

The palette retails for $55 CAD at any Sephora or on Anastasia Beverly Hills’ website. Currently, the palette is sold out, but sources tell me that multiple Sephora locations have it backstage (meaning ask an employee if they have it in the back). This palette is a permanent product with ABH, so fear not, it will return!

As usual, ABH created gorgeous packaging for this palette, giving a rose pink tone with a velvety texture. It is the same size as usual with 14 shades and a dual ended brush. I always find the brushes that are included with the palettes are excellent quality and a total bonus to the price.
Another unique thing about this palette is that ratio of mattes to shimmers. 11 of the shadows have a complete matte finish while the remaining three are metallic shadows. The shadow range easily compliments each other enabling us makeup lovers to create and endless amount of looks.


Tempera: A creamy beige with a matte finish - great for setting your eye base or giving a bright pop on the inner corner without using a shimmer shadow.
Golden Ochre: A warm beige with a matte finish.
Vermeer: A creamy shell with a metallic finish.
Buon Fresco: A light lavender with a matte finish – I really liked this shadow to blend out darker shadows in the crease.
Antique Bronze: A deep bronze with a hint of purple flecks with a metallic finish.
Love Letter: A pink-raspberry shade with a matte finish.
Cyprus Umber: Warm dark brown with a matte finish – perfect shade to deepen any look.
Realgar: Red-orange brick shade with a matte finish.
Warm Taupe: Cool toned brown-grey with a matte finish.
Venetian Red: Crimson shade with warm undertones with a matte finish.
Red Orche: Deeper red shade with warm orange undertones with a matte finish.
Primavera: Shimmery champagne-gold with a metallic finish.
Burnt Orange: Very descriptive name – a deep orange shade with a matte finish.
Raw Sienna: Light brown-orange with warm undertones with a matte finish.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette swatches

All 14 of the shadows are gorgeous and original. When swatches the shadows are very pigmented and creamy. As I worked with them on my eyes, I continued to fall in love with their bendability and how opaque you can get them. With the more colourful shadows, the colour payoff was also a bonus as they did not fade away throughout the day.

Since purchasing the palette, I have created several makeup looks that range from every day work appropriate to a smokey eye ready for a date night.

With that said, it is truly a versatile palette – if you want to keep it neutral, you can. But, you can also intensify it or even add a pop of colour too.
