The Subculture palette has mostly matte shadows. There are three shimmer/ duo chrome shades, making it more of an every day palette than a going out palette, in my opinion. My favorite colors in the palette are Electric, New Wave, and Adorn. My least favorite is Axis, as it is so pigmented, I had a hard time not making a mess with it. This palette is known as the infamous Subculture palette. The Subculture was a palette meant to be edgy, away from mainstream. It has a beautiful array of unique shades. If you were sick of every company coming out with a warm, neutral colored palette this was revolutionary.
The Prism Palette is described on the Sephora website as a luxe holiday eye shadow collection with 14 shades of universal neutrals and prismatic metallics. I will definitely agree with that statement. This palette screams Holiday/ Winter Wonderland to me. My favorite shades in this palette are Lucid, Pyramid, and Eternal. I want to note that I saw some people say that they had issues with Lucid. I use my fingers with shimmer shades a lot of the time, so I have had no issues at all. My least favorite color is Osiris. It really is a beautiful color, but I just can’t see myself using it. I really enjoyed using the Prism palette much more when I rearranged the colors in Photoshop. It helped me visualize how to work the palette.
They both contain the same amount of product weight, both have 14 eyeshadows, and are $42.
The shadows in both palettes compliment the other palette. So you can use Subculture and Prism together to achieve so many gorgeous looks. While I do really like both palettes and think there is room for both in my collection, if I had to pick one, I would pick the Prism palette. The main reason I would pick the Prism palette is because it’s a little easier to work with, it’s limited edition, the formula reminds me more of the Modern Renaissance and I love the shimmer shades.
Which is your favorite? Do they swatch differently than you thought they would?
