I bought this pretty little palette from Superdrug the other day. I think it was just the packaging that made me buy it to be honest. And the fact it has the word ‘Renaissance’ in it. I thought this would be a nice edition to my makeup bag as I prefer doing my makeup at work these days so I can get up a little later. I love the natural colours it has which will be good just for some definition in the crease. It gives me Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 palette vibes- which I absolutely love.
I mean come on… isn’t this the cutest palette you have ever seen? I love the cream colour with the gold around the edge.
There are 5 shades which are super natural and have a cool tone to them. They are all matte which I like.
Unfortunately, this product really let me down. As you can see from the swatches they are quite pigmented for drugstore shadows. However, when I dipped my brush into a crease colour and applied it, there wasn’t anything there! I had to apply a lot of shadow, around 5 times and even then there was not a lot of pay off! When I used the black colour it literally blended away into nothing! The lightest shade is nice over the lid but it disappears too!
The palette is £8 which is cheap but I have tried cheaper shadows that have given off better colour than this! I really don’t recommend. There are other versions of this palette with some shimmery shades which look nice- but I am not going to try them because of how much I dislike this palette. I would 100% spend £24 on the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette instead.
I’m so sad I dislike this product! Have you tried it?
