I finally got a chance to play with this palette recently. The colors are very unique and go together nicely; personally, they are not my favorite shades, but I do admire the creativity and how different they are compared to many palettes out there today. The shadows are very soft and have a lot of fallout, more than other ABH palettes I’ve tried. I was able to create some cool looks, but I could easily do without this palette and sometimes the colors looked sort of muddy when I tried to blend. Overall, it’s an interesting palette, but personally, it isn’t a palette that I would reach for much.

Despite negative comments about this palette, I enjoy using it and it is one of my favorite make up palettes. I was able to create many looks with it as it includes wide range of interesting colors in various shades.

Subculture palette contains of 14 eyeshadows that include mattes, metallics, duo chromes and ultra-mattes. It does have kind of unique color range with mostly darker colors that can be used in night make up, but also has brighter shades that can create few day looks.

The eyeshadows are easy to work with, which is always a great thing. They also blend nicely and are buildable like the rest of ABH eyeshadows. It does have fall out, but I did not notice it a lot of times. It is most likely to the high pigmentation that this fall out occurs from time to time. I touch these eyeshadows gently with my brush as they are highly pigmented anyways and I do not need a lot of it, so there is not a lot of fall out.

This palette is travel friendly as it contains a large mirror inside. It also includes a dual-ended brush.

Not really sure why ABH is getting so much backlash from this palette. Yes I could see how the formula could be different than previous palettes, but the over exaggerated claims on the inability to blend out the shades is simply not true to the extent that it is made out to be. This pallets has an interesting shade range of very pigmented colors that you can create so many great looks with. My personal experience with this palette, leads me to recommend it to anyone looking for something to change up their makeup routine.

This is probably the most controversial eyeshadow palette from last
year. I was so curious when I first saw this palette on the internet.
The color scheme is so unique, grungy and just different from all the
palettes that's being released even now. However I was extremely
disheartened to buy it after seeing all the negative reviews and the
hate for this palette is unreal. So I told myself I am not going to
purchase this. When it became available in store I swatched it at
Sephora and yes it was VERY pigmented but the shade Electric and Cube
didn't impress me. So I passed on this one~ However... it went on sale
at Sephora and just for the sake of having it on my collection since I
am an eyeshadow junkie, I purchased it and BAM! It was better than I

Like I said, the shades are insanely pigmented so a
little goes a long way. I have a very light hand when I am using my
palettes anyway so it wasn't a problem for me when I used this. Does it
have a fall out? Yes. But nothing crazy. Keep in mind that I am very
light handed while I was using it, but I noticed one shade that is
powdery and has a lot of fallout compared to the other shades and that
is the shade : Dawn. Other than that, everything seems fine. In terms of
blendability, the lighter shades are easy to blend but the darker
shades, especially "Rowdy", "All Star", and "Axis" gave me a hard time
on blending it. These shades are also patchy so what I do when I am
applying these is I do a tap motion using my brush or my finger. Now do I
love this palette? I don't "love" it but I do like this palette. I
think it's very unique and I am trying expand my creativity with not
just warm colors all the time so I crave something different, something
new and I am glad that I picked this one up. Now would I recommend it to
you guys? I'd say, check it first in store if you're still hesitating.
Swatch it, check how you feel about the texture, the formula, etc. This
is not an everyday palette because it requires you to work on this
palette. If you are looking for a makeup that you can use every morning
when you're rushing to go to work or school then this is not for you.
But for someone who's an eyeshadow junkie, or have enough patience and
really wants to try something different then yes I would totally
recommend this palette.

I hope my review help you guys a little on deciding if this palette is for you or not.

This was my first eyeshadow purchase from ABH, single or palette, and I think that and the color story made me not care about all the scary reviews on it. 

The shadows are all very soft, and now that I have other ABH shadows I know they are a little softer than their average formula. They are softer than Colourpop and much softer than Juvia's Place and Morphe shadows, as examples. Knowing that, and just how I generally apply my eyeshadow, I had no issues at all with this palette besides what to try first!

My best advice for the less "natural" colors and the darker colors is to first place/stamp the color a little smaller than where you want it, at the opacity you want it, then go back and blend the edges instead of trying to blend as you go.

I'm very pro-Subculture on this controversial palette. Admittedly I got it half off. However, it doesn't deserve its bad rep. The color range is striking, and a great choice for ladies who like the ABH formula but are too fair/cool to wear Modern Renaissance or Soft Glam.

The fallout issue: yes, when I applied with brush following a tutorial, there was tons of fallout and I had to clean up with remover before going out. (Gorgeous after that, though.) However, I think where this palette really shines is finger application. You get the color payoff without the fallout issue, and it goes on smoothly with fingers and smudges easily. So my take is that the fallout complaints come from using a product formulated more for fingers with brushes instead.

So I bought this palette on the initial release date because I was so impressed with Modern Renaissance, that I didn't want to miss out on this one. The colors are lovely and not like anything I had in my collection. I wish I would've waited because by now, I'm sure everyone knows that the reviews are less that stellar. When I received the palette, I thought maybe I could make it work, but sadly all the negative things people had mentioned about it, applied to my palette as well. The main things I had problems with were the powery-ness, the shimmers, and the shades oxidizing. So as far as the powdery-ness, Modern Renaissance has some pretty noticable kick-back too, but I dont think it was as bad as this palette. I pushed that fact aside though and just tapped into the pans very lightly from then on since it was something I could easily work my way around. Now, there's only three shimmer shades in the palette. Cube, Electric, and Adorn. Adorn is a bronze shade that is very lovely, but I find the formula to be very thick and easiest to apply with my finger, which I normally don't like doing. Cube is a color that appears to be white, but it has a really pretty purple-pink sheen to it when swatched. I love this shade, but I found it super hard to work with. I swatched it a total of two times when I first received my palette and after the second swatch, the shadow started to get hard (almost like when you wet your brush and dip straight into a shadow) which was incredibly annoying since I only swatched with my finger. The same exact thing happened with Electric, which is a shimmery lime green shade. Overall, I thought the shimmer shades were so pretty, but the formula of these were completely different than Modern Renaissance, and not at all easy to work with like the ones from their previous palette. Lastly, some of the matte shades oxidize when applied to the lid. I found this to be mostly true for the yellow shades. Once I try to blend them in or together, they appear to become darker and don't look anything like they did in the pan. My final verdict was that although I'm able to use some of these shadows, I'm paying to be able to use all of them, and not just some. There's a good chance that I won't even touch this palette in the near future because there's just too much work that needs to go into using these shadows. I have other palettes that blend like a dream and go on the way they should.

THIS PALETTE. Oh! This palette! I remember the initial backlash when it was first launched; influencers everywhere either hated it, or were extremely confused by it. I found this at Marshall’s for 1/2 off of the original price, and bought it out of sheer curiosity. I think it’s fantastic. It’s all pure pressed pigment, so you have to go in to each pan with a light hand, but once you’ve figured out how to work the colors, they are absolutely lovely. Honestly, I never would have paid full price for this, so I’m glad I got it at the value I did. ABH is a great brand with great quality products, but if you can get these types of product on a discount, please do.

I love using soda pop all over the lid then taking rustic and putting in the crease (which i may add blends beautifully) and then finishing it with mulberry on the outer edge. Its easy and beautiful. I haven't played with all the shades yet but from i've used so far, i love. The onky thing is i like that it comes with a brush but the more fluffy black side is kinda rough on the eye lid and doesn't blend the powder very well but i love the smaller kinda more flat side of it.

I waited a long time before purchasing this palette because of all the issues from the first batch. I will say I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked it. I will say that it is NOT a palette for beginners because it does take some work and you have to be careful about which colors you use together. A light hard is also a must because you don’t want too much or you will have some fallout. I’ve done many looks with this palette and they all turn out beautiful. I especially love the light green and white shimmer shades. All around good palette for those that are confident enough to use it.
