This palette was on my NYC shopping wishlist but I ended up buying it before my trip instead. It was on sale in a beauty store in my country so of course, I had to get it. This palette is a beautiful everyday palette but you can also go for a good glam look. Let’s dive into the review!
This is how the palette looks without the carton sleeve. The carton sleeve just looks the same as the palette. I love how the actual palette looks! It has that velvety texture that all ABH palettes have and I think it makes it look so luxury. The color is a soft beige look which fits the color scheme of the palette perfectly.
The palette contains 14 beautiful, neutral shades. Moreover, does it contain a mirror and a brush. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the brush. I Always end up using my own brushes because I like them more. The colors are so stunning! The first 6 colors are really soft, romantic kinda colors and this flows into more deeper colors but still have this romantic vibe. I love it! Some of these colors might be familiar to you because if you own the Modern Renaissance palette you will already have some of these colors.
Tempera: Ultra-matte velvety beige
Glistening: Iridescent gold with a hint of pink reflect
Orange Soda: Ultra-matte pastel peach
Rose Pink: Rose gold with a soft pink iridescent hue
Sultry: A hybrid satin metallic finish warm chocolate brown
Bronze: Metallic gold bronze
Mulberry: Ultra-matte mulberry
Dusty Rose: Ultra-matte dusty lilac
Fairy: Multi-dimensional light gold
Burnt Orange: Ultra-matte deep orange
Sienna: Ultra-matte earthy brown
Rustic: Ultra-matte deep cinnamon brown
Cyprus Umber: Ultra-matte dark coffee
Noir: Ultra-matte deep carbon black
You can really make a lot of different natural looks with this palette and even add a little bit of a shimmer too it, which I really appreciate. I think this palette has an amazing color scheme, I’m really in love!
Colors from top to bottom and left-right: Mulberry, Noir, Bronze, Cyprus Umber, Sultry, Rustic, Rose Pink, Sienna, Orange Soda, Burnt Orange, Glistening, Fairy, Tempera and Dusty Rose.
The shadows feel super soft and are super pigmented. The only two colors which didn’t swatch very well are Hulberry and Cyprus Umber. That doesn’t mean that they won’t perform well on the eyes. I haven’t tried them because I’ve been sick and not able to try make-up. I love the color scheme and how wearable these colors are. On the looks and how it felt, I think this palette is easily blendable.
The palette is a little bit powdery and has some kickback in the palette itself. I don’t feel like that’s a huge problem. I know there has been a lot of problems with the Subculture palette but I can guarantee you that this palette has definitely the same formula as the Modern Renaissance palette.
This palette is $42, £43 and €56,05. I do think that’s a fair price for this palette and I know you would love this palette! This palette is available in the USA but also easy to get in Europe which is amazing.
I really think this palette is worth the money. I can imagine that if you have a lot of neutral palettes, this will probably be a pass. If you’re looking for a new palette, this is the one! Yes there’s some kickback and some fallout but nothing more than Modern Renaissance.
Hope to see you soon loves,
