ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS | Subculture Eyeshadow Palette

HAPPY 2018, beauty lovers! Starting out the new year with reviews on some new products I got over the holiday season starting today with the new addition to my eyeshadow palette collection, Subculture Eyeshadow Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Cube / Dawn / Destiny / Adorn / All Star / Mercury / Axis

Roxy / Electric / Fudge / New Wave / Untamed / Edge / Rowdy

Subculture Eyeshadow Palette is housed in a compact case containing a full-sized mirror on one side and 14 grungy eyeshadow shades as well as a dual-sided eyeshadow brush on the other. Out of the 14 shades featured in the palette, 11 have matte finish (Dawn, Destiny, All Star, Mercury, Axis, Roxy, Fudge, New Wave, Untamed, Edge, and Rowdy) while the rest have metallic finish (Cube, Adorn, and Electric).

First thing first I want to talk about the formula. Patience and gentleness are going to be the key when using this palette. Although the shades in this palette have an overall very soft and easy-to-blend formula they do tend to be more on the powdery side so if you are heavy-handed, like me, you will experience a lot of fallouts. As far the pigmentation goes, each and every shade featured in this palette are highly pigmented, so getting a nice color payoff is not going to be an issue.

I usually prefer to stay away from palettes with a lot of dark eyeshadow shades but figured I'd give this one a try, and I am glad I did. I am a big fan of matte shades so I absolutely love the fact that this palette has plenty of them. Subculture also has a lot of interesting eyeshadow shades that can be used to create some really amazing daytime looks, nighttime looks and everything in between! Although this palette is a bit high meintanence and requires a lot of patince and tender loving it is still worth it!
