ABH Subculture Review

This palette has been everywhere. I saw the reviews and people saying its bad and hitting pan on the first use so I was unsure on if I wanted to spend £40 on the palette or not. Typically I decided I would buy it and make my own decision because I really liked the looks you could make with the palette.

I’ve been playing about with it for a few weeks now and although its not the best palette in the world and you really have to work the pigments to get them to blend nicely, I do think the looks that you can get after are really worth it. I found for me the best way to blend it out was to pat the shade in the part I wanted darkest, then to put a bit more product on my brush and blend it out. I don’t think the pigmentation is that bad, you don’t need swirl your brush in it or dig it in too harsh, I found a light tap gave me enough pigment to work with and I’d advise building the colour rather than putting a lot on at one go.

One problem I did find, I did a halo eye, was I’d get the shade in the inner and outer corner, put the shimmer in the middle and blend it a bit to get a nice transition between the colours, and the darker colour would disappear. I had to re-apply the darker shade twice before it finally did what I wanted it too. However it was worth it and the look was bold and striking (not something I often go for but I really liked this).

I think this palette is 100% workable you just need to figure out how to use the pigments and make them work for your advantage, once you figure it out, it honestly looks amazing and lasts ages, it didn’t budge off my eyes when I used the palette for a BBQ last weekend. I do really like this palette its just not really going to be a staple for me.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Review

Tad late on this train but after having the palette since May… I thought it’s about time to do a review on the Too Faced Peach Palette. Slow I know.

I got this palette for my birthday from my nan and I took a while picking between this one and the Natural Love palette, however after a lot of YouTubing videos comparing them and trying to figure out which ones I’m likely to use more, I decided on the Sweet Peach palette. Its now become one of my staples for everyday make up.

The packaging is a really pretty pink ombre effect and is metal that shuts via a magnet. I really like the way the peaches are embossed (I dont think that the right word but their bumpy) and the way its an ombred pink really gives you a feel for the palette before you even open it. Its gorgeous and the metal packaging for me is a saint as it doesn’t get finger prints. The hinge on mine has a small bit of play in it but nothing major and doesn’t have any affect on the quality of the packaging at all.

The colours in the palette are such a good mix of colours that work well with each other, and I currently love using the colour caramelized as a transition colour, with puree in the crease and either bellini or luscious on my lid. These make for a really pretty natural eye look that I wear on a daily basis, usually with no eyeliner, but if I’m in the mood for some I’ll add a winged liner to it to make it a bit more glam. When I wear this palette I always get tons of compliments on my eye make up so its one of my go-to palettes for a casual day look.

I think there are so many options for some brighter looks as well as some darker and theres so many eye look options its a go too for natural day, something a bit more glam and for an evening look with some lashes and winged eye liner.
