I have to give it to ABH, they impressed me after all the Subculture palette controversy in the beauty community. I bought Subculture because I liked the colors included and found out that it was not as bad as some said. The Prism Palette pigments have a smoother application compared to the last two eyeshadow palette releases. I recommend it to anyone that needs these colors in their arsenal.
So far, doing these two eyeshadow looks surprised me. My blends never come out this good or go on as effortless. I was so happy that Anastasia Beverly Hills dropped a palette that would counter their last fall out with beauty critics. Speaking of “fall out” this palette clearly has less of it. I love using Modern Renaissance and Subculture but the truth is that they both have more fall out than any makeup artist or beauty lover would want.
I find all three palettes useable but Prism has a certain night life glam and holiday party vibe to it. You can do simple or be extra with this palette. It has a few duo chrome shades that change depending on what you pair with them. They definitely have a cause and effect thing going on. The neon greenish-yellow color, Sphere, was a nice touch as far as color range. I found it intimidating yet I was drawn to use it.
I’m sure the contrast of the colors will depend on skin color, brush application and concealer/primer color. I did notice that certain swatches look different on raw skin than with eyeshadow primer. The color Lucid is not as light on me as it seems in the palette. I had to pack it on for it to show its full potential on my skin tone. All and all, I am pretty happy with this purchase of $42 and cannot wait to do more with it. The blendabilty has struck me.
I also did a very short tutorial on the look below. Check it out and let me know what you think. Here’s the link -> Galaxy Smoke Tutorial from ABH Prism Palette
