For a long time I was looking at this palette and couldn’t make up my mind on whether to buy it or not. Until one day I’ve finally dared to purchase it. However, I have to say that I was more impressed with its lilac sister, which is Norina palette that was released last summer. But still, this Modern Renaissance is no way worse.

There are a lot of reviews already, so I’ll try my best to make mine the most informative. Besides, I’ll also show you a 100% dupe of it, which is much cheaper as well. It’ll be a way out for everyone who wants to try out the legendary shades of Modern Renaissance palette and is on a budget.

All the shades here are well packed with pigments, they blend out with ease and they are super matchy. They fall out, which is a part of all the branded palettes. But once they work for me, I don’t even take it as a disadvantage. :)The palette consists of:

2 shimmering shades

2 satins

and 10 mattes.

They are super pleasant to the touch and swatching them always brings me a lot of joy.

They stay put the entire day, don’t crease and can be worn even without a primer.

Three bright and bold vinous shades may seem too scary at first sight, especially if you adore neutrally-toned eyeshadows, but these are also fine. They are here as icing on the cake for all the experimental fans.

I managed to create different makeups with it:


And now, the promised dupe. Recently, they released a 100% dupe of this palette which is almost identical to the Modern Renaissance palette at the price of $5 instead of $42!

Here we have the swatches of the identical shades. From the left to the right is Anastasia and the rest are from Wet n Wild.

The only difference between them is actually in the absence of 4 shades: Golden Ochre, Burnt Orange, Vermeer and Venetian Red.

Here’s the link on the Wet n Wild palette.

I assess the Modern Renaissance with 5 stars, even though I love the Norvina palette more. I don’t have anything negative to say about the quality, so there’s nothing to be picky about.
