Blogmas Day one - The battle of the Anastasia palettes




Oh the Anastasia palettes are possibly the most talked about palettes in the blogosphere, some for good reasons and some not so much. Today I thought I would give you my opinion on the three palettes that are currently available. Modern renaissance, Subculture and Prism. So without further ado lets get on with my little reviews. 


First off we have Modern renaissance which is a cult favourite all over the blogosphere. I have to say this is definitely my favourite out of the three. It is a gorgeous mix of warm toned and pink shades, the only issue I have with this is the fact I would love this palette to have more shimmer shades in as it only has the two. These shadows are just the most beautiful amount of pigment, blendability and wear time. I would definitely say that out off all the eyeshadows palettes I own, which is a lot, this is in my top five. 


Next up we have Subculture which is a very controversial palette. I personally love it however you have to be so careful with it. Although the shades in this palette are very varied I still find there is a good variety of looks which can be done with this palette. Now these shadows have a lot of fall out however this isn't something that bothers me if I am getting good pigment and nice blend ability which I find I do with this palette. The only issue I have is the fact that the shimmer shades seal so badly as they seem to have a lot of binder in them so in this palette I tend to stick to the mattes. 


Finally we have the newest addition to the range, I'm pretty sure the Prism palette is limited edition for Christmas however at this current moment in time it is still available. The colours in this palette definitely have much less fallout than subculture however I feel that in some shades especially the black the pigmentation has been compromised. With this palette I feel like there are some shades which pair well however I find with the blues and purples I need to reach for other palettes in order to make a look. This one is really pretty and I'm glad I have it in my collection however I think if you are looking for a cohesive palette in which you can mix all the shades this one isn't for you. 


Overall I would definitely recommend the Modern Renaissance the most out of the three. Just find it to be the most cohesive and the one which is easiest to work with although I do think all three are beautiful. So that's it for Day one of blogmas I'd love to know what you think about the Anastasia palettes.

  2. These palettes all look super gorgeous when they're put side by side, but for me, I think the Modern Renaissance palette is the most wearable.
