Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette Review

Hello beauties! I’ve been hearing so many mixed reviews about the ABH Subculture Palette so I had to try it out for myself to see what all the talk was about. My initial thought was that I love the packaging and the shades were amazing. Once I started using the palette I realized there weren’t many transition or lighter shades to use. The shadows also had a lot of fall out. Even if I touched my brush to it very lightly, a lot of it was coming up. I knew that this was an issue people were already having with the palette but I waited awhile to get this palette because I was hoping that the initial batch wasn’t good and that ABH would fix this issue. Other than that issue, the shades I used were decently pigmented, but very hard to blend. I was debating on returning this palette because I know I won’t use it much but I decided to keep since I really like the colors. I definitely won’t be grabbing this a lot but I know i’ll use it every now and then for the unique shades. In the bottom two photos, I lightly touched the brush to the shades so you could see the fall out of the shades, some of them had more than others.

    • I loveeee the colors but I wish the formula was more like the modern renaissance palette but they aren’t terrible!
