The Kara ES07 has a similar color scheme as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. I've been going back and forth with the Subculture palette after all the controversy. Initially, I didn't like the colors and wasn't sure how I would wear them, but I started seeing some beautiful looks that peaked my interest. When alot of influences kept saying the Subculture palette wasn't "beginner friendly" I decided not to pick it up and try the ES07 palette first.
I bought this palette on Ikatehouse for 14.99$, this was my second Kara 35 eyeshadow palette and I hoped it would be similar quality. When it arrived, I couldn't wait to swatch and try it. If you're a beauty blogger you know the feeling of waiting until you get you're product shot...before playing with a product. I quickly fell in love with this palette, and the colors. Now, I'm putting the Subculture palette back on my wishlist because I would like to try it.
The shimmers are very foiled, and I wear them both with or without a setting spray. The mattes are creamy, blend very nice, are are very pigmented. I have no issues with the staying power for these shadows. I always use a primer, mostly a Mac Paint Pot.
The Kara 35 eyeshadow palettes comes in the generic black plastic packaging, but it does have a mirror and the palette name is printed on the front. I'm so happy I picked up this palette, and it's quickly become a favorite.
