Worth The Hype? Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

It goes without saying that since its release last year, I've certainly been lusting over the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette. I tend to get a couple of high-end palettes a year; usually one when I pop over to the states and the other for a birthday or Christmas present. After roughly a year and a half without this palette in my life, on my recent Florida holiday I finally caved in and added this beauty to my ever-growing collection. But what do I genuinely think?

ABH isn't a brand I've had too much experience with; I definitely enjoy my bargains and you're more likely to find me scouring the shelves in Boots. However, I have previously purchased their liquid lipsticks and for the most part been pleasantly surprised with them. ABH are also one hundred percent cruelty-free, which has begun swaying me more towards the brand recently.

Priced at £43, the Modern Renaissance palette comes with a range of 14 unique matte and shimmery shades. It is also (I believe) the most expensive eyeshadow palette I have owned to date; just slightly dearer than my beloved Urban Decay Naked Palettes

Want my honest reaction? It's totally worth it!

The addition of this palette has introduced me to a selection of warmer toned (and a few cooler toned) eyeshadows which until now have been absent within my makeup collection. This has allowed me to experiment with colour and create a more expansive range of different "looks". 
Whilst certainly not the creamiest, ABH shadows are quite possibly the most pigmented; just a small amount goes a long way; the standout shades for me being Primavera, Buon Fresco, Red Ochre and Antique Bronze. Combine this with the fact they're extremely blendable and I think we've quite possibly got an almost perfect palette on our hands.

VERDICT: It's worth the hype!

Have you tried ABH products before? What would you recommend?

Lots of Love
