As soon as the cold breeze of the early morning started, we all know that the winter is here....and when it's winter it's all about FALL MAKEUP. And when it's about Fall Makeup, we lean towards mostly bold colors.

Although today's review is all about a versatile palette which is created by the brand for every person so that they can create every look in every season. But as it is a time for fall, so I think this palette is the just perfect palette for fall...yes, I am talking about ANASTASIA MODERN RENAISSANCE PALETTE.

PRICE:- $42 + Shipping.

The palette comes in a beautiful lavender color cardboard box. The box and the palette are of same lavender color with the name of the palette emboss on it in white.The outer cover of the palette has a velvety finish.

The palette consists of 14 beautiful shades. The box of the palette is sturdy one and it closes with a magnetic closure. It comes with a mirror and a dual ended brush. The dual ended brush has one side eye shadow brush whereas another side is the blending brush. The bristles of the blending brush are little scratchy and it picks a lot of product whereas the eye shadow brush is less harsh on skin and easy to use. The brush is actually perfect for touch up only.

My experience:- 

I grab the palette from BeautyBay.com long back, when the palette was just launched. As I shopped a lot at that time so I missed out this palette. Recently while cleaning my stash I found out this palette remain untouched from ages. So, I had to take it out for testing ;)

The palette consists of 14 beautiful mixed shades of neutrals and berry shades. The palette is perfect for daytime and evening look. All the shades are super pigmented even the matte shades too.  Even without primer, the eyeshadows are super pigmented one. The texture of the eyeshadows is so soft that they blend easily. But few eyeshadows have minimal fallout which is ok because the shades are super pigmented as I told you earlier. The most amazing part of this palette is that all the neutral shades are equally pigmented like the dark shades.

The staying power of the eyeshadows is worth mentioning. They stay pretty 7 hours plus without any primer on my oily lids. After 7 hours there is slight fading and smudging of shades during summer on my oily lids but that can be fixed with a primer and a setting spray.


The palette is bit costly when it comes to ordering it from the website as they have shipping plus customs. So in India, grabbing this palette is a bit problem. So, if you want to grab this palette hassle free then Instagram sellers are the good options for you.

Secondly, all the shades are pretty dupeable one in the palette so if you can't grab it you can look for the dupes but I admit that the quality of the palette is something that is worth mentioning.

Overall ANASTASIA MODERN RENAISSANCE PALETTE is one of the best palettes that is created by the brand. And the palette is permanent one so anybody can grab it anytime. The palette is a versatile palette full of neutrals and berry shades for everyone to create every kind of look for every season. I am amazed by the pigmentation of the eyeshadows in the palette and I think this palette is a must-have palette in your stash if you are an eyeshadow lover like me.

That's all for today, I am leaving you here with loads of pictures of the palette followed by an EOTD  created by the palette only. 

Hope you like today's post and I will see you soon with some other post until next time stay bless :)

Love Sammy :*


  1. Its a nice palette, although I must say the shades look quite similar to the Makeup Revolution New-trals vs neutrals..I don't know if it's just me. Anyway, I am sure the quality is going to be top notch on this one.And I love the look that you have created here :)

    1. You are absolutely right agni, even I found this palette is pretty dupe of few other palettes from other brand but again, when we talk about quality this palette is something worth mentioning. I wish they are available in India too as the price of the palette is too high.
      And thank you so much dear :*
