One of the most controversial makeup releases last year was definitely the Anastasia Beverley Hills Subculture palette. Being the follow up palette to the highly coveted Modern Renaissance palette, the Subculture had big shoes to fill. As most of you are probably aware, after it’s release the Subculture palette disappointed many, with complaints of horrendous amounts of fall out, shades being hard to blend and some even claiming the shadows oxidised on their eyelids!
Before the palette released and the drama ensued, I was 99.9% sure I was going to buy the Subculture palette – I LOVE the colour scheme. I own a fair number of eyeshadow palettes but I didn’t have anything even remotely close to this one. For me the colours were a game changer, but I was put off buying the palette after reading and watching all the bad reviews. I just couldn’t justify spending £40+ on a palette that so many people had deemed unusable.
Fast forward a few months, and I stumbled across a post by Makeup Revolution on Instagram advertising their new Re-Loaded eyeshadow palettes. One of them in particular (the Iconic Division palette) bore an uncanny resemblance to the ABH Subculture palette – and the best bit, it was only £4! So I snapped it up immediately, and in today’s post I’m going be sharing all my thoughts on this budget friendly dupe with you.
