This is the Anastasia Beverly Hills’s Modern Renaissance Palette. I’m going to go ahead an tell you before you continue reading this. I did not get this from Sephora or The brand itself. I found this one on eBay for like $13. I was looking for something else and These came up and I thought what the hell let’s see what I get.
I was not disappointed at all. I did a check and compared it to the actual thing. They are similar in every way. So if it’s a dupe then it is a damn good one.
The Palette itself is this lovely velvet pink case. The only issue I had was I scratched some of the writing off the front and the label on the back is coming up. That was from me inspecting it though. I pulled it up to see if there was anything sketchy under it.
These colors are quite stunning for a bunch of neutral tones with the one bright color. Honestly I prefer the bright colors and for this one Love Letter is my favorite! As you can see below these colors are super light on my skin. I tried to get some good swatches but most of the colors are just too light on me.
Let’s break down the colors below.
Tempera– is the color of my skin, which is why you can’t see it.
Golden Ochre– it’s a light tan color
Vermeer– super light glittery pink
Buon Fresco– light browish purple
Antique Bronze– Brown with hints of silver glitter
Love Letter– Bright reddish Pink
Cyprus Umber- very dark brown
Raw Sienna– neutral Tan
Burnt Orange– Browish Orange, Literally a burnt orange. Very appropriately named.
Prima Vera– tan full of shiny glitter.
Red Ochre– Browish Red
Venetian Red– Super dark red with some purple hues and glitter.
Warm Taupe– light brown
Realgar– Dark Orange.
All the non-glittery colors are matte.
This is a lovely palette if you are in to neutrals. I’m ok with them when I need them, but I prefer more variety of colors. This is actually a nice palette even though it’s not really my style. It’s a lot of darker colors which I really enjoy. It’s not one I would normally buy which is why when I found it on eBay for $13 I decide why not. Like I said I’m not a bit disappointed at all, I really like this palette.
I’m not sure if they still have them on eBay or not but you can always goes the legit way about it and get it straight from Anastasia Beverly Hills or Sephora. I have included the links to both below. On both sites they are $42 a piece.
Have you all every gotten something off eBay like this? How was your experience? I would love to hear it.
