I think by now everyone has seen those ‘bloggers made me buy it’ posts and this is one of those purchases. For the past (around 2/3 months) I’ve read probably 20 or 30 posts from some of my favourite beauty bloggers mentioning this palette. Anastasia Beverly Hills is a brand I’ve never actually tried before but heard nothing but good things about it and so recently I welcomed into my life the most coveted palette of the year, the modern renaissance palette.
At a similar price to my favourite Urban Decay Naked Palettes, I figured this one was worth a try. Anastasia Beverly Hills products are quite hard to get hold of in the UK as I’ve only ever seen the brand on Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty.
This palette has a stunning range of warm toned colours and after watching numerous make-up tutorials on YouTube, loads of ways you can wear these shades. I was really drawn to the mix of shimmer and matte shades, from the shimmer highlight tones to the matte burnt oranges. I’m trying to be a bit more experimental with my eye looks and so the deep reds drew me in as well.
This palette is complete with 14 shadows, which are incredibly pigmented and easy to blend. One thing I really love about this palette is the colour range as they are all shades I reach for and shades I love creating eye shadow looks with (especially the burnt oranges!)
As you can see from the swatches, this palette is incredibly pigmented and just with one swipe of a swatch, the colour intensity is amazing. The first shade on the left, Tempera is what I like to call the perfect base shade. I like using NYX eye shadow base first and then this shade on top. I like to follow with Buon Fresco to add some depth to my crease and then use Antique Bronze to add definition.
What's on your make-up wish list right now? Have you tried any Anastasia Beverly Hills products?
