Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Subculture Palette Review + Swatches


Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Subculture Palette Review + Swatches

*oh my lord isn't it beautiful* 

I know, its only just arrived, so I cannot do a full intense review, but I find when it comes to new palette swatches is what everyone realistically wants, so here is the swatches and first impressions for each shade! I hope enjoy - and I hope you have found it helpful if you are looking to purchase it :) 


Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Subculture Palette Review + Swatches

Cube. Every palette has a dud, and this is that for me, I mean I can't even see it on my skin tone. It does have a pink shimmer, but its just MEH. Not interesting. 

Dawn. The perfect transition shade. I love this shade for blending out a warm eye look, and to use as a base. I used this today and first impressions are fantastic. 

Destiny. I also used this one today, and it is the perfect Khaki green! I have been looking for a good khaki that isn't patchy, and this on is stunning - even better than the J* one!

Adorn. This is a foiled type shade, stunning swatched and applied wet, but difficult to just apply using the brush. Reminds me of MUG Grandstand I think it is :) 

All Star. Stunning burgundy shade. Perfection, warm toned and stunning. I love how this applies. I cannot wait to use this one. 

Mercury. The perfect Grey tone for eyes, its on the fence between warm and cool, definitely not either, and works with the warmer shades and the cooler ones, I can see me using this shade a lot. 

Axis. This shade of blue is so hard to get right. and I am shook at how pigmented this is. Truly insane amounts of pigment. I cannot wait to be brave enough to use this!

Roxy. This is the perfect on the fence shade between pink and orange, beautifully pigmented. I used this one today - as I was most curious about this one (see below) and I was impressed, it blends beautifully. 

Electric. This is another shade I just won't use. I just don't like the look of it, but never know. But I just don't love the shimmers. 

Fudge. warm brown perfection, I love the look of the shade too, it is just needed to complete a palette like this, it is stunning with roxy. 

New Wave. The perfect in-between orange and yellow, warm stunning perfection. This is the warmer yellow in the palette, it is stunning - and totally unique to my stash! 

Untamed. This is the lighter teal, definitely cool toned. I cannot wait to try this out with edge. I love the idea of a yellow/blue eye. 

Edge. The cooler yellow in the palette is just so unique and nice! I love how this one blends and how different this shade is. 

Rowdy. I love how they went for a dark purple rather than a black, it just works so beautifully with the palette, I used this today and it worked beautifully in the outer V.

Overall, the mattes are BEAUTIFUL. Honestly cannot get over how smooth and pigmented they are, cannot believe how buttery they are, and how easy they are to work with. I now understand the hype around ABH shades, and this palette is so new and unique to the market at the moment, I don't own anything else like this, so it is 100% worth adding to your collection. The shimmers really aren't the best, but with only three in the palette it isn't the biggest issue.

To Address The Drama, there has been a video showing huge fallout with the shade roxy, and I can confirm that mine isn't like this. I don't know if the girl had a truly terrible batch, or if it was done to create views, I'm not sure, but if you are waiting to hear about this I can confirm that my roxy shade is perfect, and won't be crumbling away like the video was showing - no idea what happened there.

If you love the palette I will be doing a follow up post later this month with a full review and looks I have created using the palette, as a different palette like this can be intimidating with the shade range.

Have you looked at purchasing this yet? Do you like how different it is? Do you think you would use it? 

Edit: My Batch Code is P7E19

  8. All Star and Adorn are literally the two most perfect shades ever! I like the look of the Modern Renaissance palette more but this one is beautiful as well if the shades are more up your street xx Nikita

  15. These shades look more appealing to me than the Modern Renaissance did. This palette has caused a lot of controversy so will look forward to hearing your thoughts. Xx

  18. This palette surely does look beautiful! A mixture of 'safe' and out there shades.

  19. I love this palette, it's so pretty and so different from everything that's in the market right now! But I won't be purchasing it because I know I won't use these colors on a regular basis. Great little review!

  22. Omg isn't it beautiful?! I think I'd actually get more use out of this one than Modern Renaissance. I'm so relieved to hear that they aren't all like the bad batch I've seen reviewed recently because I really want to add it to my collection.

  23. I've not heard great things so far, but your swatches look fab. Love the look of Adorn and Axis. Can't wait to see what looks you come up with, deffo try the yellow and blue - so on brand!

  25. Thank you so much for creating a post like this! I wanted to purchase this palette, but when people said the fallout was crazy, I was super nervous to invest in it! The colors are beautiful, and like you said, nothing like I ever owned. I can't wait to add this to my collection! Thanks Erin xxx

  30. Look how stunning this palette is, looking forward to your follow up post xx

  31. I like the fact they put more unusual shades and tones together rather than the normal safe shades we keep seeing. This reminds me I still have the ABH Mario Im still yet to open! x

  32. It looks beaut! I need to get my hands on it so glad you posted a review as I've been in two minds whether to buy it or not after seeing things online about it. I need New Wave in my life!!! xxx

  33. So glad you addressed the drama, I was a little nervous about how this would go down. I'm still not sure about this because I don't know if I'll get a lot of wear out of it but damn, adorn is such a beautiful shade!

  34. This is a palette that doesn't inspire me. I'm not sure what to do with some of the shades. I'm interested in seeing some looks. Maybe then I'll have a better idea, if i'll like it. http://www.mrsqbeauty.com

  35. This palette is soooo beautiful, I love all the greens you get in this palette, it's so unique!! It's a shame about the shimmers but the other shades are too nice to dwell over

  37. The swatches look so stunning, but I really don't know whether to buy to after all of the reviews I've seen. I will probably end up buying it though!

  40. Could you let us know what batch number you got? That we might be able to figure out if the ones that end up in stores are from a good batch.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Mine came today and i can't wait to use it. I had a little swatch and i did find some of the shades super powdery but i'm hoping they will perform well on the lids xx

  42. These swatches look really good! I honestly am holding off on this palette because of all the controversy around it. Your post was very reassuring though. Glad to hear not all palettes have that fall-out problem!

  45. There's so many mixed reviews about this online, but I love this palette! There is a fair amount of fall out but nothing out of the ordinary and it's super pigmented.

  46. While subculture looks incredible and very autumnal, I was very put off by Jamie Genevieve's videos on it. While she managed to create a pretty plummy smoked eye look the second time around, for a total beginner like me it just doesn't seem like its worth the money - I'd rather get modern renaissance! Looking forward to seeing your in depth review!
