My Subculture palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills arrived today and I nearly wept over the beauty of the colours once Mum had gotten the palette out of the box and opened it. Each colour is equally beautiful, and it’s impossible for me to choose a favourite, though Cube and Electric (the two duochrome shades in the palette) are definitely at the top of the list, as is Adorn (the metallic shade). Needless to say, Mum and I were in agreement that the best way to evaluate the palette was to use it, and so she put me in my reclining wheelchair and began to experiment.
The eyeshadows are insanely pigmented. When using this palette, it’s very easy to go from “beautiful” to “clown” if you’re not careful. Use a light hand with this palette. You can always build up the intensity of the shade on your eyelids if it’s not to your liking. That’s preferable to having to wash everything off and begin anew.
The eyeshadows blend easily and beautifully. You’ll have no problem creating looks with a lot dimension, smokey eyes that smolder seductively, or anything else your heart desires. You will really have no excuse for streaks or harsh lines except for yourself because you can’t blame the eyeshadows.
I think it was worth its $42 price tag. Hell, that’s a steal given the quality of the product. I highly recommend this palette. Your makeup collection shouldn’t be without it.
