If you recall my haul of the Aphrodite palette (Huda Beauty Rose Gold Edition dupe!), I mentioned that I had plans on buying more items from Bad Habit Beauty. A few weeks later, and we are back!
This time I’m bringing you the Retro Love palette which is a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. After the initial controversy and bad reviews I could not bring myself to spend $42 on that palette. So thank goodness for Bad Habit Beauty!
The packaging of this palette is super cute, I mean, do you see it? The “retro” theme was perfectly captured in it’s design which makes it even better. This palette contains 14 eye shadows that just scream Fall.
Anas… I mean Bad Habit Beauty went off on this one.
There are 11 matte shades, and 3 shimmers.
Out of the 14 shades in this palette, the most notable are Flower Power, Rebel, Icon, Mod, Revolution and Nostalgia. Flower Power was the first color that caught my eye because I own several orange eyeshadows but none of them are a creamsicle shade like FP.
By looking at the swatches above, I am sure you are noticing the patchiniess in some of the shades like Mod, and Nostalgia. This can definitely cause a problem during application and should be noted for those who are interested.
I have not used this palette yet as it literally arrived while I was leaving for class 😦 but I am willing to bet that there will be fallout. It won’t be as bad as the first batch of Subculture palettes but it is what it is LOL.
I am eager to create some colorful looks with this palette for the holiday season, so stay tuned for a review or first impression.
