HAPPY FRI-YAYYYYYY. It’s Friday, kids. Hallelujah. My cute hubby is home for his day off work, so we are going grocery shopping and probably for a bike ride. YAY FOR DAYS OFF. Today’s post is using a very popular and controversial palette in the beauty world: ABH Subculture. It got a lot of flack because it is technically a pressed pigment, NOT an eyeshadow. It’s intensely pigmented and has some fallout but it’s STUNNING so I wanted to test it out and work with it. So let’s do it.
Pros to this palette:
It is an unusual color combination. This is the first palette in a long, long while to have these colors together with such pigmentation. It blew the beauty world’s MIND.
It’s SO PIGMENTED HOLY SHOOT. You literally need a feather light touch, which means this product will last a LONG time. Which at $42, you probably want it to last quite a while.
It’s a reputable brand. ABH constantly comes out with beautiful eyeshadow palettes. I trust the quality completely.
Cons to this palette:
This isn’t a complete palette. There aren’t enough transition shades to only own this palette and nothing else. I still reach for different inner corner highlights and brow bone highlights as well.
It’s SO PIGMENTED HOLY SHOOT. (deja vu). This is a pro AND a con. If you are not used to working with shadows like this, you will have a difficult time with it. It can be very hard to blend out, and one mistake is hard to get rid of.
I was intensely following this palette release because of all the commotion it caused — I held off on purchasing it until I decided if it would be worth it.
After using it, I have decided that YES I really do love this eyeshadow palette. It’s so unique and those mustard yellows are worth it on their own.
