Today we’re going to be doing a bit of a showdown: Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette vs. Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette. Is it a good dupe? How’s the quality? What are the colors like? I’m here to answer all your questions, my friend. Just keep reading if you’re interested!
First, here’s what they look like swatched:
As you can see, the Modern Renaissance palette has a few more oranges, but the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette has a lot of the same purples and pinks as MR. Revealed 2 has a wider selection of pinks and shimmers and has some darker colors as well.
I was pretty impressed at the quality of the Revealed 2 palette. A few of the shades are a little gritty, but the color payoff is great. Compared to the MR palette, I’d say MR is just a little softer and creamier, but the opacity of the shades is very similar. In terms of longevity on the eye, I’ve worn both of these palettes together and they both stayed on all day with a basic eye primer underneath.
Are these palettes similar? Yes. Are they exact dupes? Not exactly. If you’re not planning on using the orange shade in the Modern Renaissance palette then the Revealed 2 palette will be great for you! However, if you were definitely planning on using the orange shades, this palette won’t live up to your expectations. It’s a great palette with great quality shadows at an affordable price, but not an exact dupe of MR. I still would highly recommend it!
