5 Alternatives To Anastasia Beverly Hills' Sold-Out Subculture Palette

You always want what you can’t have — especially when it comes to beauty products. That’s why we’re getting the inside scoop from your favorite retailers on what’s selling out right now, how to sign up for waitlists, and where to go to find the next best thing. Because if everyone’s buying it, you know it has to be good.

Last week, days before the launch of Anastasia Beverly Hills' newest eyeshadow palette, Subculture, a Twitterstorm ensued in anticipation of the brand's latest offering. When it finally hit stores, it did what buzzy new beauty products do best: It sold out.

The Subculture Palette, according to ABH founder Claudia Soare, is the evening equivalent to the daytime-appropriate Modern Renaissance Palette — and it threw fans into a buying frenzy. The palette boasts a lineup of fourteen shades in a variety of tones and finishes (warm, cool, matte, duo-chrome, metallic, you name it). Each shade is also ridiculously pigmented — so pigmented that we suggest going in with a very light hand.

For those of you who missed the short buying window, check out five alternatives in the slides ahead.

Like ABH's Subculture, this palette contains matte and shimmery finishes in a variety of shades from deep olive to warm bronze.

Lorac Pro Palette 2, $44, available at Ulta Beauty.
Think of this palette as Subculture with training wheels. Sure, it doesn't contain all the same hues, but if you're looking to dip your toes in the warm olive tone pond, this is a great place to start.

Maybelline The City Mini Palette in Urban Jungle, $9.99, available at Ulta Beauty.
We've never met a Marc Jacobs palette we didn't fall hard for. This one, which features a slew of golden and moss tones, is as blendable as it is pigmented.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow palette, $49, available at Sephora.
This palette has a mix of rich shades that are perfect for any day or night look.

NYX Cosmetics Perfect Filter Shadow palette in Olive You, $20, available at NYX Cosmetics.
Here, you've got your warm yellow and deep green hues, plus a few pops of color (look at that blue!) thrown in for good measure.

Juvia's Place Nubian 2 Eye Shadow palette, $28, available at Juvia's Place.
