Anastasia Has My HeartThursday, August 18, 2016
When I first heard about the Modern Renaissance palette by Anastasia of Beverly Hills earlier this year, I thought it would likely be something I thought I needed. Then I saw it, and nearly died. I avoided swatching it at Sephora for months, just for the constant fear that I would swatch it and immediately buy it. Brian and I are doing some serious home purchases right now (read, look for a post about our new sofa next week) and buying a new eyeshadow palette is not something on Brian's home improvement list. Although it's definitely on mine.
About a week ago, I was shopping at Victoria Gardens (an outdoor shopping mall) and before I knew it I had swatched five of the shadows on my arm and was instantly in love. Then, I saw it was sold on Sephora.com and panicked.
I'm so glad I finally bit the bullet and got this palette. It is so beautiful and will work for all seasons. The shadows are highly pigmented, blend like a dream and are definitely swoon-worthy. It's also decently priced at only $42, which is pretty good for the quality. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@shesleaningin) to see the looks I've been creating!
