Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette
This palette is considered to be one of the most famous palettes in the makeup and the beauty industry. It has 14 shades that are a mix of neutrals and warm tones. It has pops of red and even brown or neutral tones which are perfect for both every day and a party look. It has no problems with blending and can be applied to bare skin too. However, a primer is advised because it makes the eyeshadow last longer and brings out the colour more.
I was surprised because a lot of the new matte eyeshadows in the palette feel much softer and smoother compared to most of Anastasia’s matte eyeshadow range that I’ve tried before. This is the best eyeshadow box not just in the ABH range but generally in the entire makeup range. Shades like Tempera, which is light beige and has a sheen which is satiny. The golden ochre and the red velvet also look stunning when worn alone or worn with other neutral shades. Although this is a high-end brand this palette gives you a run for your money. It is known to last a long time and can be used in almost all occasions.
Anastasia Prism Eyeshadow Palette
This new release took the makeup industry by storm. The packaging has been similar but the colours weren’t packaged well. For this reason, the eyeshadow is said to get wasted and come out more than required. Some people are known to have a difficulty with the shimmery shades, especially when they used a dry brush. Using the fingertips for the shimmery shades application was the best way to go about it.
The mattes were nice overall, though Obsidian was a total disaster for us and Sphere was dusty enough to be hard to build up or use as a lid colour without a creamier base underneath it.
We liked how the palette’s colours worked together and felt that there was a good mix of finishes, though we tend to prefer the inclusion of a few satin/pearl finishes to help blend mattes into the metallic shades but did not find that to be a real issue with the textures between all the shades in this palette.
