Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette Swatch and Review

I have been seeing a lot of posts recently where people are asking about the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. A lot of y'all have been wondering if this is something you should purchase or not, so I wanted to do a quick post about it. I personally love this palette, much like ABH's other palettes and shadows. The formulation is amazing, and the shadows blend so well. It features neutral and berry tone shades, which I think would look great on just about everyone. This is suppose to be part of her PERMANENT collection, so there is certainly no rush to go out and get it. So without further ado, let's get to the good stuff. 

The outside of the packaging is stunning to me. It's very simplistic; however, it does has a soft, velvet covering. I absolutely adore it. 

There are a total of 14 shadows in this palette, with 11 matte shades and 3 metallic shades. Again, these shadows are HIGHLY pigmented, and very soft to the touch. The first row is swatched below. 

From the bottom of the picture to the top, the colors shown are as follows: 

Tempera - Velvety beige with an ultra-matte finish
Golden Ochre - Earthy yellow with an ultra-matte finish
Vermeer - Iridescent shell with a metallic finish
Buon Fresco - Antique lavender with an ultra-matte finish
Antique Bronze - Metallic sable with a satin finish
Love Letter- Raspberry with an ultra-matte finish
Cyprus Umber- Dark coffee with an ultra-matte finish

From the top of the picture to the bottom, the colors shown are as follows:

Realgar- Brick with an ultra-matte finish
Warm Taupe- Earthy gray with an ultra-matte finish
Venetian Red- Crimson with an ultra-matte finish
Red Ochre- Sienna with an ultra-matte finish
Primavera- shimmery gold dust with a metallic finish
Burnt Orange- deep orange with an ultra-matte finish
Raw Sienna- neutral amber with an ultra-matte finish

As you can see from the swatches, the colors are very pigmented, and just plain gorgeous! There isn't a single color in this palette that I dislike. When swatching the shadows, there really wasn't that much powder kick-up; however, when I used my brushes, there was some kick up from the matte shades. That is something that I can personally live with, since this is such a gorgeous, versatile palette. 

You can pick this palette up on ABH's website, Sephora, or Ulta. It does retail for $42.

That's all for today y'all. Let me know below in the comments if you enjoyed this post, and if you plan on adding this beauty to your collection!
