Modern Renaissance Dupe

Modern Renaissance Dupe

The Modern Renaissance Palette was probably one of the most popular eyeshadow palettes this year! Practically everyone and their dog had one. My Instagram was plagued with stunning photos of the palette and the different looks. I managed to get my hands on the Delicious Palette from W7 and honestly it looks so similar. I don’t have the real one but I’m just going to be reviewing this as a palette in it’s own right.

This palette would be perfect for autumn. It has such a variety of warm tone shades that can create so many different looks! I love all the berry shades as they look stunning on their own or fluffed into the crease. This palette is primarily matte shades but there are a few shimmer shades too which means you can create like a full glam eye look. The combinations are endless so I think this would be a great traveling palette. It won’t get too mucky like the original as the packaging is cardboard as opposed to suede on the real one. It also has a shade that suits my eyebrows perfectly.

As for the quality of the shades, they are extremely well made for the price. They blend nicely and also have a good colour pay off. The shimmer shades blew me away. I honestly didn’t have high expectations. Typically cheaper palettes have shimmer shades that are very chunky and scratch the lid. I’m sure we all remember those pans you used to get in magazines. Imagine that texture. Well these ones are creamy and smooth and resemble nothing of those fish scale like shadows. The eyeshadow catches the light nicely. I have also used these shades as highlighters which isn’t highly practical but they did look nice!

The brush was something else I didn’t really expect. Palettes of this price range tend to include those sponges that are binned after 4 seconds. However this one came with a blending brush much to my surprise. The brush has a fluffy end and a flat tapered end and it works so well. The fluffy end blends shadows through the crease seamlessly. The flat end can be used to pack shadows on to the lid. I haven’t even touched another brush for this palette. This is a big step for me as I tend to be a bit of a brush snob!!
