Quite some time ago Wet N Wild released a dupe for a high end over hyped eyeshadow palette. The Wet N Wild Rose in the Air palette looks extremely similar to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette.

Within the last year or so I became quite the fan of pink eyeshadow. It’s weird because a few years ago I used to avoid it like the plague. I always felt like it made me look sickly and I would just stick to peaches, oranges and neutral shades instead. But over time I’ve kind of learned which shades of pink work for my skin and I’ve enjoyed playing around with the colour!
I know when the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette came out I was not a fan of the colour pink. So everyone around me was hyping up the palette and I just never wanted anything to do with it. I feel like because of that I just couldn’t ever justify purchasing the palette. If I wasn’t excited about it in the past would I ever even wear it? So when I saw that Wet N Wild came out with an affordable dupe for it I knew I needed it in my life. I really wanted to see if these shades would speak to me and if I would even end up wearing them. I didn’t mind trying them out with this palette since it’s super affordable.
There’s a great mix of wearable and bold shades in this palette. And I really see huge similarities between Rose In The Air and Modern Renaissance. I don’t know if I would consider them complete dupes but I feel like if you have one palette you probably don’t need the other one. The colour selection allows for a lot of versatility when it comes to eye looks! You can create some fairly bold and smokey looks with the darker colours and you can still have very wearable looks with all the neutral shades that they included.
The pigmentation on the Wet N Wild palette is pretty great for being so affordable. It does take a little bit of work sometimes to build up some of the shade pigmentations. But most of the time I would prefer that than it being super over the top pigmented because my eye looks can usually end up looking muddy if the product goes on intensely from the start!
The formula of each of the shadows is really creamy and blendable. I find that I buff out any of the shades and they all mix well together on the eyes. Some of the other Wet N Wild 10 pan palettes that were released at a similar time and this has the best formula out of all of them. The shades perform well on the eyes and the metallic shimmer shades give a great glow to the eyes!
Have you tried any of these Wet N Wild eyeshadow palettes? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! If you own both the ABH palette and this Wet N Wild palette I would love to know if you think they really compare?
