ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS SUBCULTURE + SWATCHES | OH MY GOD?!

I got it, the palette that set the makeup community on fire and danced in the flames. I hated myself for clicking 'complete checkout' a week ago, was I crazy to buy a palette for over £40 that was supposedly "unacceptable," and "the worst formula?" I really wanted to have my two cents in the whole thing, so I got it thinking wow- I might of just paid £42 for a blog post.

First of all, when this arrived I was quite taken back at just how different it looked in the flesh compared to all the images online, I wasn't keen on the shades when I saw them switched online but when I actually had it in my hands my mind completely changed. The palette is certainly unique, and I don't have any shades like these in my huge neutral palette stash. I love the whole dusty, muted and vintage hue and feel the whole colour palette brings. And laying it next to my Modern Renaissance palette, I can now completely see how Anastasia 'complimented,' it. 

If you own Modern Renaissance, you'll know how gorgeous the suede packaging looks and feels and how surprisingly good the double ended brush included is- this is the only brush I've ever used that's come with a product. One side is amazing for blending, and the other flat side is great for packing on glitter or a lot of colour. 

If you own Modern Renaissance, you'll also know how great the pigmentation is of the shadows and that they are a powdery formula with fallout. Which is why I really don't understand the witch hunt with Subculture. This palette has the same amount of fall out as my Modern Renaissance, and the foiled shades have none at all- all good eyeshadows have some fall out, it just so happens that these shadows are highly pigmented so there's a little more. You need to be gentle. You don't need to swirl a brush around the pan in circles to pick up colour, you literally just need to gently tap into the pan and you have intense pay off.

As much as I hate the word, I was truly shook when I swatched my palette, I was expecting pigmentation - but this was unlike any pigmentation I've seen in any high end palette. There is one shade named Cube in the palette with shockingly bad pigmentation, that being the holographic white/pink iridescent, but personally I would of never of used the shade so that really doesn't bother me. I really don't know what went wrong with Cube, it's almost like its not even supposed to be in this palette. 

I really do not understand all of the drama around this palette, I think it's stunning and quirky and so unlike every other palette being released at the moment with the same colour palette. I've been very pleasantly surprised and I'm now left questioning a number of YouTubers that I trust for honest reviews. I've never been disappointed by any ABH product I've purchased and this certainly is no different. I'

If you do like the look of this palette, I urge you to ignore all the hate and go for it. It's without a doubt been my best impulse buy so far this year (and I do a lot of that...)
