There are a lot of mixed reviews being thrown out there, mostly negative thus making a lot of people stay away from the Subculture Palette. Honestly, stop focusing on one popular bad review and do what the blogger or youtuber says, if you really want to try it out then by all means go ahead and try it out yourself.

If you’ve been living under a rock then you wouldn’t have known that Anastasia Beverly Hills released a new palette named Subculture, we makeup lovers like to think it’s Modern Renaissance sister. So, does the palette live up to the same expectations and adoration like Modern Renaissance?
Someone posted a video showing how the shade Roxy was a bit too powdery, a lot of people just considered it as a powder. That changed a lot of people’s opinions on this palette saying they don’t want it anymore. I listened to none of that and decided to try it out myself. Here’s what I thought.
I personally think this is a lovely palette, the shades are gorgeous and it has more mattes than shimmers which is a bonus. Now I do have to say that the shade Roxy is powdery, but the other shades are not. So if you don’t want to get this palette because of one shade, then honey you are missing out. I did two looks, one look on each eye and they turned out perfect.
The first look I used the shade Roxy and although there was powder, it was a great shade. And it was my fault because I aggressively swirled my brush around, so I changed the way I pick up product and started tapping it on the shade, thus giving me a good amount of product and pigmentation. I paired it up with a shimmery color for my lid using Electric, it was amazing. The brush easily picked up the product (With no fallout or powderiness) and was applied gorgeously onto my eyelid.
Even though the popular opinion is that it’s a bad palette, I really do think that it’s not at all, maybe people got the bad palettes. While everyone got theirs early, I got my two palettes later than everyone else and I got great results from the palette.
If you like or don’t like ABH, I still recommend this palette the colors are gorgeous and compliment my skin color amazingly.
