The palette has divided the internet, its caused controversy everywhere! So I had to try it out myself.
Unpopular opinion time: I don’t hate this palette. Maybe its because I’ve never tried the Modern Renaissance palette and maybe its because I’m not anywhere near a professional or even really know what I’m talking about. I didn’t hate it.
For starters the colours are flipping gorgeous and really highly pigmented. This does mean fall out, that is to be expected, but I haven’t found that mine kicks up as much as some of the ones I’ve seen online. If you go in with a careful hand you’ll be fine.
Yes, the colours are a bit hard to blend, especially the green shades. But, if you plan your look carefully and go in gently you’ll get an absolutely stunning look. This palette is not for beginners but if you take time and care with your looks this palette will work for you.
Now that is all out of the way, lets talk about those colours! Both metallic shades and flipping gorgeous of one, edge and new wave speak to me on an emotional level and roxy is such a cute shade. However, the show stopper for me is cube! I love the way this looks in the inner corners and and a brow bone highlight.
My concluding thoughts are, if you want a convenient fail-safe eyeshadow palette you should probably avoid this one but if you’re looking for a bit of adventure and you’re up for an artistic challenge give Subculture a try!
Did you buy the Subculture palette? Did you think it was as bad as everyone said or did you have a similar experience to me? Let me know!
