Hi guys! Today I thought I would post the makeup look I’m wearing today as it was the first time I tried the brand new and highly controversial Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. For those of you who may not know, there appears to be some manufacturing errors with this palette and some people have received duds. I believe most of the issues have to do with fallout and some shades hitting pan after a few uses. I just used mine for the first time this morning so it’s hard to say if I got a good one or not. So far the quality seems very similar to the Modern Renaissance Palette so I have not experienced any issues with the few shades I did use so far.
Primer: Nivea Post Shave Balm (Sensitive)
Foundation: L’Oreal Pro Matte in Classic Ivory
Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape in Fair
Powder: Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder
Blush: Makeup Revolution The Matte Blush in Beloved
Contour: Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit – Sombre & Lucid (mixed)
Bronzer: Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer (Original)
Highlight: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (original). Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette – Dawn (transition & under eye), Roxy (crease), Cube (lid) & All Star (outer v & under eye). Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liner in Demolition (water line). Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara.
Brows: Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Medium
Lips: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned
As I mentioned earlier, so far I haven’t experienced any major issues with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. All Star was a LOT more pigmented than I expected so I do recommend using a light hand with that one. The mattes that I did use blended very well. Cube I found worked best using my fingers vs. using a makeup brush. I kind of suspected that would be the case after watching a few tutorials using the palette.
I will post a better review after I’ve had time to test the palette more. If you are skeptical about receiving a dud I would suggest giving the company some time to correct the manufacturing error.
