After the Subculture palette, anyone thinking about buying another ABH palette might think twice. But I’m here to test it out for you and save you the horror of spending a dime on something of terrible quality. So when unboxing the palette I noticed the same velvety texture of the palette, that both Modern Renaissance and Subculture had. I love the velvet feel to the palette and the black and gold on the palette looks stunning.
The palette is beautiful and bright. The first few colors that really speak to me are Eden, Sphere, Eternal, Saturn, and Throne. They are such cool looking shades and seem fun to play with.
When I swatched them, everything seemed very silky and lightweight. Most of the swatches came out perfectly with the exception of two colors. The two colors I didn’t care for was Obsidian and Osiris. Obsidian is a black color but when swatched it is more of a black shade you would use for a smokey eye. It didn’t have a lot of pigmentation. With Osiris in the palette it looks like a navy blue sparkle shade. When I swatched Osiris it came out to be a patchy navy shade with very little/sparse sparkle. These shades were a miss for me, but the rest are super pigmented, silky and are NOTHING like the Subculture palette.
I did an eye look with this and felt that the colors blended really well together. These shadows went on just as pigmented on the eye as it did when I swatched it. There was also no fallout like there was in the Subculture palette. So I think it’s safe to say that it’s a good buy!
I hope you enjoyed reading and comment down below your favorite shade from this palette!
