The hottest eyeshadow palette in the drugstore is easily Wet n Wild’s ‘Rosé In The Air’ palette. Can you guess why?
Everyone’s always looking for dupes of Sephora’s most popular palettes, and this one seems to look a lot like the Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Modern Renaissance’ palette.
When I saw this palette a few months ago, my immediate thought was “Modern Renaissance dupe?!?!”. They’re not trying to hide anything here, and I’m not mad at it. Pretty much every shade in this palette has a counterpart in the high end ABH palette. Let’s get into the comparison swatches (on the palette closeup below I numbered off each shade, as the individual shades do not have names).
I tried to recreate my go-to ‘Modern Renaissance’ look, that I just can’t get enough of (look HERE).
I really love the ABH ‘Modern Renaissance’ palette. I absolutely love it. The golds, the reds, the fantastic colour payoff – sign me up! But if you don’t have either of the palettes and are wondering which one to get, how do you choose? If you are a fan of the color family of the ABH palette, you’ll probably like the Wet n Wild ‘Rosé in the Air’ palette. The pigmentation was much better than I thought it would be (although the pigmentation of the metallic shades does not live up to the ABH palette). If you aren’t willing to drop the high end dollars, and want something that is similar to the ABH palette, and are okay with some of the shades not having as much punch as ‘Modern Renaissance’, the Wet n Wild palette is definitely for you. Even though I own both, I can still see myself busting out the Wet n Wild palette every once in a while. But if I’m looking for in-your-face colour payoff, I’ll still reach for ‘Modern Renaissance’.
With the price point of $5 USD/$6.99 CAD you can’t go wrong with grabbing this palette. The price is right, and the pigmentation, while not on par with ‘Modern Renaissance’, still really impressed me.
