#DupeAlert: Eyeshadow Palette Edition

in at October 12, 2018

As promised, here’s a major #DupeAlert!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette (Sephora, $42)

The cult-favorite Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills is my top palette of 2017; it’s obviously abused. Being a fan of both warm and cool-toned shadows – love me a pink look! – this features 14 vibrant matte and shimmer shades ranging from neutral to berry hues. The buttery shadows are heavily pigmented – sometimes taking a life of its own – so do use a light hand when blending. There’s a myriad of looks you can create with this, it’s insane. It is powdery, nothing too bothersome, and may be too pigmented for beginners so that’s something to keep in mind.

This also comes with the most wonderful duo eyeshadow brush, surprisingly my favorite from my brush collection! PSA: Anastasia Beverly Hills will be available in Sephora PH on October 16! Snag it then, yes?

Wet n Wild ColorIcon Eyeshadow Palette in Rose in the Air (Watsons, P349)

I am floored by the price tag, does it get any better than this? This has less shades – 8 mattes and 2 shimmers – but the colors are almost identical. The shadows show up, no doubt about it, but you’ll need to keep building up and blending the colors unlike the ABH MR. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s actually perfect for beginners.

The bottom transition shade – a gorgeous dupe for my beloved Raw Sienna – is perfect, and I can’t get enough of it. I can apply this by itself, and I’m done. The gold shimmer – similar to Primavera but warmer and less chunkier – is also more subtle which I honestly prefer!

There’s actually a part of me which prefers this drugstore option because it’s more user-friendly and smaller! If you’re on a budget or simply on the lookout for a great eyeshadow palette from the drugstore (or just in general), this – along with the other available colors, I think there are 2 – is such a must-have in your collection!

ICYMI, Wet n Wild is finally available at SM Beauty Section (Megamall) and Watsons (Megamall and UP Town Center)!
