I believe the first palette I ever tried from Anastasia Beverly Hills was the Modern Renaissance Palette. It’s such a beautiful palette and one that I still reach for. When Subculture came out I went crazy trying to make it mine because I loved Modern Renaissance so much and hoped it would be similar quality. Sadly, for me it wasn’t. Ever since I’ve been a little hesitant with the new palette releases. Even if the color story really stands out to me. That is until I laid my eyes on the Sultry Palette.

I was really drawn to the beautiful, shimmery packaging. It looked all kinds of glamorous. The shades were a perfect combination of neutrals with the most gorgeous pop of coral to tie it all together. I imagined all of the beautiful holiday looks I could create with it.

I read many reviews before deciding to make my purchase. Funny thing is no one mentioned that the gorgeous shimmery packaging was a bit of a glitter fest! Don’t get me wrong. It’s even more beautiful in person. But I wasn’t expecting textured glitter. It’s impossible to touch it without getting glitter everywhere. I really wish it was sealed in so that you get all of the glamour without the mess. Glittery bits aside, it really is a beautiful palette. Inside and out!

The Sultry Palette contains 14 eyeshadows. I love how it evens out between mattes and metallics. I personally love more matte shades. There’s even a great brow bone shade so I won’t have to reach for another palette. The shadows swatched beautifully. This wasn’t really a surprise to me. Even the Subculture palette swatched beautifully. What did surprise me was how well it performed.

I was a little nervous starting out. But the more into my look I got the more I fell in love with this palette. Twig was the only shade that was a little powdery, but it was nothing like Subculture. Dystopian needed a little extra help blending out. It could get a little patchy at times. The other shades were perfect. They all applied and blended beautifully. Even Noir.

You can see a look I created with the Sultry Palette below. I used the shades Twig and Slate in my crease, Cyborg on my lid with a dampened brush, Noir on my outer lid/crease, Fresh on my brow bone, and Pearl on the inner corner of my eye. For my lower lash line I used a combination of Slate and Noir.

This palette isn’t exactly my style. I’m more about color. Yet I found myself drawn to it. I’m really glad that I decided to try something different. While this isn’t something that always works in my favor, I’m happy to say that this time around it did. The Sultry Palette is a winner in my book. I’m happy to store it right next to my Modern Renaissance Palette. After the holidays of course. Because this beauty will be getting a lot of use over the next few months.

Have you tried the Sultry Palette?

Swatches: Kitty Kat, Forever Young, Daydream, Forever Lit, Glo Getter, 143

At this point I’ve got a pretty decent highlighter collection. I really didn’t need another highlighter palette. Except that I did. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit was just too darn pretty to pass up!

The packaging is just your typical cardboard packaging, but it’s a really pretty sparkly pink! I love it! The kit includes 6 highlighters in the shades Kitty Kat which is a pink with platinum shimmer, Forever Young which is a pink pearl with silver shimmer, Daydream which is a coral with white gold shimmer, Forever Lit which is a platinum with lavender shimmer, Glo Getter which is a champagne with rose shimmer, and 143 which is a rose gold with bronze shimmer.

I found them all to be very pigmented. I did swatch them wet so that they’d pop more for the photos, but even when applied dry they’re still very pigmented. If you’re looking for a more natural highlight, this kit isn’t for you. This baby is going to give you some serious glow! I did get a bit of glitter everywhere when I applied some of the shades, but it wasn’t that big of a deal to me. I just figured I’d mention it because I know that some might find that to be bothersome.

I really love this Glow Kit and I’ve been using it ever since I purchased it. You can see it in action below. I used Kitty Kat to highlight my cheeks and used Forever Lit on the inner corner of my eyes, nose, and cupid’s bow.

Swatches: Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Venetian Red, Warm Taupe, Realgar

There were a couple of eyeshadow palettes that I’ve had my eyes on. Do I need a new eyeshadow palette? No. But when shiny new things make their way to social media I can’t help but drool over them all! I let my wonderful husband treat me to just ONE. At first it wasn’t an easy decision. Here’s what I had to choose from; Beauty Killer by Jeffree Star Cosmetics, The Fun Palette by Ciaté London, the Serpentina Palette by Kat Von D which will be launching on July 5th, and finally the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. As you can see I went with the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. After seeing swatches flood my Instagram account I just knew I needed it in my life. And boy did I choose well!

This beautiful palette contains 14 shades in neutral to berry tones. These shadows are incredibly soft and buttery. Love Letter is the only one that felt a little dry, but it’s still easy to work with. Primavera was super soft and almost creamy. It just glided onto my arm. Most of these were super pigmented with just one swipe. But I did build up for photo purposes. Buon Fresco is seriously beautiful! My swatch doesn’t do it much justice. Cyprus Umber surprised me because I assumed it would be dry or chalky, but it was just as soft and buttery as all of the other shadows. These shadows were all very easy to work with. They applied and blended beautifully!

The palette also comes with a double-ended brush for application and blending. I don’t think it’s anything special, but I suppose it’s good to have if you’re traveling or something. I can see this palette being extra special in the Fall with all of the berry shades, but I’m totally going to be rocking the heck out of it now. It’s seriously one of the prettiest palettes in my collection now. You can see a look I created with the Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette below. I totally plan to post more looks in the future. I don’t see me putting this in my tool box any time soon. At the moment it’s sitting on top of my ‘Daily Use’ tray.

I’m wearing Love Letter on my lid, Realgar in my crease, Tempera as my highlight, and Cyprus Umber on my lower lash line. As you can see I opted for a colorful look, but you can just as easily create a more neutral look. I’m really loving this palette!

I have a feeling I’ll be buying that Kat Von D palette anyway. I just can’t pass up a pretty palette.
