$5 ABH Modern Renaissance Dupe? - Wet 'n' Wild Rose in the Air Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette (Review)
Say hello to a strikingly similar palette, or in makeup talk "dupe" of the iconic, Modern Renaissance palette, by Anastasia Beverly Hills. Wet N Wild - Rosé In The Air Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette, is one of four palettes in Wet 'N' Wilds revamped Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection (retail $4.99). Every single shadow in the Wet n Wild Rosé In The Air palette has an almost identical match to the Modern Renaissance palette!
The recently relaunched Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette is the new and improved version of the classic 8 pan palettes, (now 10 pan). The four different palettes now feature 2 larger, matte transition shades on the top and bottom and the main colors in the middle. The hues come in a mix of shimmery daytime hues to sultry evening shades. Wet 'N' Wild describes the reformulated shadows as "powerfully pigmented, buttery-soft and glides on like a dream." The palettes come in a durable plastic compact with clear lid and pictorials printed on the bottom side.
Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette | Rosé in the Air
Rosé in the Air sold out the day it was launched on Wet 'N' Wild's website (it has since been restocked). It features a combo of neutral, warm tones, as well as some berry tones. The majority of the shades are matte, with a few shimmery shades.
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Modern Renaissance Palette
The palette features 14 highly pigmented, easy-to-blend shades, including neutral and berry tones (11 matte shades; 3 metallic).
Retails at $42
How do they Compare?
It would be unfair to expect a $4.99 dupe of Modern Renaissance to yield the same results as a $42 palette. With all due respect to Wet 'N' Wild, in my opinion Rose in The Air is not as pigmented, nor as long-lasting, as Modern Renaissance. Again for $4.99 you truly can't complain.
