I was intrigued by the color scheme of the palette, so I bought it but ended up returning it. I hated the shade cube because it was so dry and had no pigment along with the electric green shade. The metallic gold was ok but didn’t pick up well on a brush and I had to pack it on with my fingers, which may be fine for some people but a palette this expensive should have shadows that apply well both ways. The mattes were very pigmented, but quite difficult for me to blend.

This is definitely not your ordinary palette, the colors are bold, pigmented and don’t allow for any haste, you gotta be careful with color selection and willing to have patience applying & blending. ABH describes it as a “compliment” to their modern renissance palette, and I agree with this, as the only way I find I can play it safe is to work from both palettes side by side and sticking with 3-4 colors max (4th being used as an eyeliner). I wish I could grunge it out as it calls to me to be. BTW, it also partners well with soft glam.I don’t have much experience working with pigments and hope I’m right assuming this is what these shadows can be considered as. I got this because I felt it would present a true challenge to be creative when applying eyeshadow, there are just too many other pallets, formulas and shades out there where it’s perfectly fine to dig into a pan, load up a brush, and pack it on like a 5 year old. It is not by any means a “must have”.At this price point it is very fair to expect more than a medicore velvet and cardboard case, I recommend keeping the box and putting it immediately back in it after use to help keep it clean.

I think a lot of people let influencers on YouTube convince them that this palette is horrible.yes it has some Fallout but it's not that extreme and you shouldn't be swirling your brushes around in the pan anyway. you should always tap each brush. The colord are very pigmented they blend pretty easy and the color scheme of the palette is so different from anything that I own. I would definitely purchase it again if you've been looking at this and you wanted it but have been scared to purchase it because of reviews on YouTube I say purchase it and you won't be disappointed if you think for yourself. but if you are a trend buyer then it is a for you.

Controversial, I know, however this palette provides some gorgeous eyeshadows with extreme pigmentation - the trick is a light hand and a willingness to suffer a little fall out. The price point is about average for an ABH set of shadows and I would have never marketed it as a companion to the Modern Renaissance Palette but I have grown fond of this and use it more than I use the modern renaissance as the reds and pinks in there are just too bright for me. There are some wonderfully unusual matte colors in here - yellow and pinky/peach shades that I have not seen elsewhere. I am very careful with how I attempt to blend them as certain of the colors (like the deep teals) don't necessarily work well with others - they can become muddy if not applied and blended well but the tones in this grouping are different than everything we are seeing these days and I do enjoy it. Use a VERY light touch when picking up the mattes in here!! I have never regretted buying this!

Do not listen to the bad reviews, this is a great palette. At first I too listened to the bad reviews but then once this palette went on sale and I was able to snag it for $28, I fell in love. It's so unique and I have nothing in my collection (which is huge) like it. The key with this palette is you really only need to tap your brush into the matte shades SOFTLY, ONCE and with a SOFT hand onto your eyelid; this will give you all the pigment and blend-ability you desire. Totally will rebuy when I need to.

WHYYYYYYY?To start - I do not hate this. At all.ButI absolutely loved Modern Renaissance and used it almost daily over the last year. Just when I was down to pan on several shades Subculture emerged- and - though I probably would have gone for it anyway, it has the one color I'm ALWAYS looking for but can never find - Edge, which is like a curry/mustard. So that sealed the deal. Just as MR, I find this palette to have a successful , sophisticated, very wearable yet varied color-play. I love that these palettes aren't just essentially the same color over and over again. I stopped buying palettes that had me forgetting which shade I just used from one second to the next. I finally realized- it's not me it's them. All that having been said, and as much as I wanted to rave about this, I must admit that some of the shadows fall short in the texture/pigment/blend-ability department. Unlike MR, which provided consistent excellence throughout, Subculture is a bit of a mine field. The dark shades (Rowdy, Axis) are very difficult to blend successfully, and while that does tend to happen with dark pigmented shadows, these are more like powder liners. Which I was ok with, and fine with using them as such. I love the color Fudge but even that I find a bit difficult to work with. Tends to go patchy without real diligence.Then there are the light, iridescent shades; Cube and Electric. Electric is decent, although a "creamier" shadow would pop more, and Cube hardly applies at all. As another reviewer pointed out it's more of a glaze. In summary, I like this palette. It's not crazy expensive and I think it's worth what I paid for it. The colors are beautiful. I will probably never use green eyeshadow but I can't expect every shade to suit me, and I know a lot of women who would look great in every single shadow offered here. That said, I find it lacks the user-friendly, easy-to-work-with, winning combination of both beautiful shades AND excellent quality that I found Modern Renaissance provided.

Amazing. I was skeptical to buy this because of all the bad hype this product got from Youtubers but I feel like all of them are all being little whiny drama queens for views. Yes, it is very powdery, even more so than my Modern Renaissance palette, but BOY is it pigmented!! You need the LIGHTEST hand with the shadows. They are super pigmented and very very blendable. Now, the trick with this palette is that. It has very odd and kind of has opposite shades (like how blue is opposite of orange), so if you blend those two colors together, you will get an ugly muddy color and it will lose the blue and orange that you originally put. So because of this, you need to stop yourself from overblending when placing those tricky opposite colors. Just place the shadow where you want it, and lightly blend the edges, but do NOT overblend, or you will get muddy looking eyeshadow. A lot of beauty gurus don't seem to recognize this issue when they're review this product and its really silly to me. Ignore the bad hype. If you're attracted to the colors in this palette and you know how to do makeup ( im not an make up artist lol), just get it.

Check out my video review of Subculture, the bad boy palette of the Youtube airways! You’ll get my myth busting, urban legend refuting review along with live swatches and a demo! This is the biker brother to the pretty and romantic sister, Modern Renaissance. Or the bad boy biker dude with Dr. Jekyll ’n Mr. Hyde tendencies coming to take your sweet daughter out. Is she ready for da ride?!!? AND watch out she may want to tame this dude! But should she??? ;) FITCHICKGLOWS

y'all. this palette. it's drop dead gorgeous. i mean it, the colors are stupid pretty. with fall coming up and our usual choices seemingly awash in an endless sea of peaches, pinks and neutrals, this collection of shades is an effing godsend. also, i'm only a moderate hand at makeup (no contouring or smokey eyes for me) and i'm no artist - i draw stick figures and when i cook, things just get plopped on the plate with no ceremony - but this dang thing is inspiring me to dream up tons of looks because all of the shades are so different but also incredibly cohesive. not gonna lie - you really do have to use an incredibly light hand. also, the blending is a bit dodgy with some of the darker colors and the shade will oxidize so you get a darker look than you'd expect from the pan, but as others have said, just put the colors next to each other as opposed to blending them out on one another. with colors this bold to begin with, your looks is already going to be dramatic, so i feel like less blending and more blocks of color is actually a good aesthetic. also, i know there's the 'omg fallout!' camp out there, but with using a light hand i had basically none. just be gentle with this girl- like most ladies with a tougher look, she's softer inside than you think. overall, i think this collection is amazing. i've actually never used the ABH MR palette so i came in with no expectations, just a lust for the colors themselves. based on this release alone, ABH has hooked me! be gentle, be wary of blending on the darker colors, and know that it'll take time, and have fun!

I bought mine from ulta on the release day, and I've been wearing this palette for several weeks before being able to write a review. Due to insanely polarizing opinions about this product I took it as a personal challenge to see if it's really that bad and if I can make it look good on my hooded eyes. There are definitely some problems, I'll start with them:All matte shades have heavy fallout, no matter how lightly I tap the brush to the pan. However, I DID NOT hit pan with one swipe! It's been 3 weeks of daily use and I only slightly dented the surface of my most used shades. Also fallout on it's own does not make or break the palette for me, because I enjoy working with different formulas, and some of them have insane fallout as well. But if that's a huge issue for you then don't buy this product, you gonna hate the eyeshadow powder spilling on your cheeks. Poor blendability of some shades. All Star and Rowdy are very VERY difficult to diffuse. It's possible, but not pleasurable to do. Sometimes it can turn patchy, and it's very difficult to fix. I use the brush which came with the palette for this job, and, barely touching the lid, I use circular motion to diffuse the color. It might end up patchy no matter what you do, so be prepared for that. I don't have problems blending any other shades though. Even Axis blends well for me. Oxidation. Some colors show significant darkening when applied to the lid: Destiny, Untamed and Edge all do that. You will end up with a darker look than planned. It will still be beautiful, but not what expected. Layering difficulties. Some colors don't play well together when applied on top of each other. Darker green shades turn into blackish mud when applied over burgundy. If these shades are placed next to each other there's no problem with color distinction. Shimmer shades problems: Electric is so beautiful but very temperamental. I developed a hard pan in my shadow after two uses, and was forced to find dupes. Electric is not pigmented enough to be used as eyeshadow, it's rather an eyeshadow topper. A perfect dupe for it is UD Sideline. Cube is not pigmented at all, plus I fail to see how it's beneficial for the overall color scheme of the palette. Adorn is a stunning color, and the only one I have no problems with. Positives: I just love the collection of colors in this palette! It's a refreshing novelty in the sea of burgundy- peach -brown boredom. If the shades performed better this palette would be my HG. I was able to create many stunning looks despite the problems I mentioned. The matte eyeshadows are intensely pigmented, probably the most pigmented colors I've ever worked with, therefore a very small amount covers the whole lid. (Use smaller brushes for crease and outer V). I also love the brush, that's the only brush I use for my creasework ever (I collected three of them already). Most mattes (except the two) blend well for me and create beautiful gradations of color on my lids. Overall due to problems I've mentioned I can't recommend this palette to a friend, but I like it enough to keep and continue to use for myself.
