Hi friends! As you know, makeup is where it’s at for me so today i have a little review, which is in no way sponsored, its just my personal thoughts on the palettes!
I just bought the Modern Renaissance Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hill and the Tarteist Contour Palette Volume III and let me tell you one of the best purchases i’ve made. Let’s start off with the ABH palette!
So the Modern Renaissance is truthfully the most gorgeous thing ever. The colors are so vibrant and pigmented and the packaging is flawless. It consists of 14 beautiful pigments, 11 matte and 3 metallic. This might not be for everyday use if you like a natural look, because the colors are more dark neutral and berry tones, but for me, i love that for daily wear. The formula makes them extremely easy to blend out, unlike some palettes where one swipe of the brush with a dark color can ruin your eye look. Is it just me or do the names of eyeshadows entertain and interest you? I know Urban Decay and Tarte have some great names for theirs. In this ABH palette the names describe the colors perfectly, for example, burnt orange or warm taupe. They’re simple, but simple is good! It is a bit pricey, $42, but it will last you for a while and the quality is definitely worth it to me.
Now let’s talk about the Tarteist Contour Palette! Once you’ve tried this there is no going back, it gives you the perfect chiseled cheekbones, natural looking rosy cheeks, and a subtle but stunning highlight! It comes with 6 pigments, 1 blush, 2 bronzing shades, 1 contour shade, a highlight, and a glow! (not sure what the difference between highlight and glow is but they’re labeled differently). Let’s talk about each “shade.” So the blush is a mauvey nude and gives you just the right amount of pink and color on your cheeks. The bronzing shades have somewhat of a shimmer, but that could just be to me, or maybe the lighting i’ve looked at it in haha! The matte contour shade never fails to give me the best sculpted face, and unlike some contouring shades, it has no gray or ashy undertone. The highlight has a rose gold tint and looks so gorgeous on every skin tone. Finally the glow, this highlight shade has a champagne “tint” to it and also looks so amazing on every skin color.Overall the entire palette is so worth the $43 and I promise you you will not be let down, it’s great whether you’re a beginner or professional! Also, all of the Tarte palettes smell amazing, like cocoa or something, and that makes me love the brand even more!!
If you were considering purchasing either of these, or you’ve been looking for an amazing quality contour or eyeshadow palette, I hope I steered you in the right direction and made up your mind for you because you need these in your life!!
I am in no way affiliated with Anastasia Beverly Hill or Tarte, I am just a big fan of their products and these are just my personal thoughts and opinions on each of these palettes 🙂
