Hello my lovelies! 💖
It’s already been two whole years and a number of other other palettes from different brands have been released since then, yet everyone still gravitates towards the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette.
This summer when the Norvina palette launched I got major MR vibes from the packaging but the shades are totally distinct from one another. Norvina is more of a cool toned palette while Modern Renaissance is more warm toned.
My palette was gifted to me for Christmas by my aunt. It was the first actual eyeshadow palette I had ever gotten up to that point so I was super excited when I opened it. At first it was a wee bit daunting to wear eyeshadow since I was so inexperienced and I didn’t really know how to apply it. Now I feel a lot more confident applying eyeshadow and actually wearing it out in public! I have a lot more to learn though; but practice makes perfect!
Regarding the actual palette, the shadows are incredibly pigmented and creamy. I must say that there is a tad bit of kick up, nothing major, but that’s one thing to note. The shade Cyprus Umber is strikingly pigmented so be sure to use it sparingly. As for the brush, I find it kinda scratchy. I wouldn’t recommend it but if that’s all you’ve got then it can be worked with.
Fun fact: The shades were inspired by paintings of the Renaissance period hence the name Modern Renaissance!
