The newest Bad Habit Palettes are dupes for the Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes. There’s actually a really great deal on the Shop Hush app where you can purchase all 4 palettes for just $30.00! It truly is an amazing deal, but the only one I had my eye on was the After Hours Palette. I’m a sucker for mauves.

The Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette is only about $17.00 more and I’m sure it’s worth every cent. However, I had points burning a hole in my pocket so the moment the After Hours Palette was restocked I placed my order. Making this baby free! How could I resist?

The Bad Habit After Hours Palette contains 9 eyeshadows. Featuring 6 smooth, pigmented mattes and 3 buttery shimmers. It’s a really nice sized palette. Like the other Bad Habit palettes I’ve purchased the shadows are housed in a sturdy cardboard package that includes a mirror. The first thing I noticed was a bit of a chemical scent. I don’t remember any of the others smelling like this. It was pretty strong when I first opened it. After a few uses I barely notice it anymore. Just figured I’d mention it.

The shadows are exactly what I’ve come to expect from Bad Habit. They’re surprisingly pigmented. The shimmers truly are buttery. I didn’t experience as much fallout with these shimmers. They all applied and blended beautifully. Even the mattes. I love how their palettes always contain a brow bone shade so that you can easily create a full look using only one palette.

You can see a look I created with the Bad Habit After Hours Palette below. I used Clutch on my lid, Flushed and Cabernet in my crease, Powder Room on my brow bone, and Hickey on my lower lash line.

Overall, I’d have to say that this is a really great palette. While I went a tad bold with my look, you could just as easily tone it down a bit and create a neutral look with or without a pop of color. I’m really tempted to buy the other 3 palettes, but I really don’t need them. I already have so many similar shades. But their palettes are usually nicely done and very hard to resist.

Late last year I posted swatches of the Bad Habit Athena Palette on my Instagram. I’ve used the palette quite a bit since and thought I had reviewed it for the blog. It turns out that I haven’t yet. I really have to get back to a routine because I feel like I’m all over the place lately. Anyway, I probably just confused it with one of the other Bad Habit palettes I did review. Oops?

I think the Athena Palette is my favorite so far. It contains 18 beautiful eyeshadows with 4 unique textures. Including 8 mattes, 6 buttery pearled shimmers, 3 shade shifting duo-chrome toppers, and 1 glitter. They’re all very nicely pigmented. Some of the mattes did require a bit of building up, but they built up beautifully. The shades all compliment each other beautifully and you can easily create a number of looks with this one palette. I can see it working beautifully year round too.

They all applied and blended effortlessly. I didn’t use the glitter though because glitter just isn’t my thing. Just figured I’d throw that out there. I applied the shimmers with a dampened brush and gently pat the shadow onto my lid. I’ve never had any issue with application this way. There is a bit of fallout though. There were specks of shimmer on my face throughout the day. It wasn’t much so I didn’t find it to be bothersome. Other than that I found this palette to be wonderful and I can’t put it down!

You can see a look I created with the bad Habit Athena Palette below. This is actually my go-to look with this palette. I’ve gotten many compliments. And somehow every time I recreate the look it turns out better than the last. For this look I’m wearing Epic on my lid, Valour and Justice in my crease, a little Lore thrown in, and Purity on my brow bone.

Overall, I’d have to say that this palette is a winner. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the quality is there! Don’t overlook it because of the $12.00 price tag. The way I see it that’s just a bonus. If you check out anything from Bad Habit, I highly suggest the Athena Palette. Unless of course you’re not a fan of shimmers. Because this palette contains quite a few of them and I did experience a bit of fallout. However, I wouldn’t say it was a shimmer-fest or anything. Use a nice tacky primer and dampen your brush a bit and you should eliminate most of that.

I know things have slowed down a bit around here lately. I assure you that I have not lost interest. I have been working behind the scenes a bit, but I admit that my blog just hasn’t had my full attention. First, one of my oldest (childhood) friends got me hooked on a new game. Then my sister-in-law had her baby. He’s the cutest little guy and I just can’t get enough of him! He arrived at the perfect time and was just what I needed to drag me out of the good old Winter Blues. Seriously, I hate Winter! Mostly, I’ve been trying to get back into shape. I’ve been doing more exercises that my body is no longer used to so I end up getting hurt. I know they say the best thing to do is push through it so I kind of go back and forth. One day I’ll push through it and the other day I’m laying on the couch unable to move. Good times.

To sum it up, I’ve been juggling a lot and I need to manage my time better. The problem is that there’s just so much that I want to do and so little time. I’ll try harder though.

Today I’m going to be talking about one of my Hush App purchases that I mentioned in my Holiday Haul post. It’s the Bad Habit Aura Palette. It’s said to be a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette. It’s not an exact dupe, but most of the shades are very similar. I was even able to recreate a look someone made using the Prism Palette.

Bad Habit claims it features unique textures ranging from intensely pigmented mattes to ultra pearled metallics to shade shifting duo-chromes. I’m really digging the different textures as well as the shade selection. When I first opened this palette the first looks to come to mind were bold. However, you could just as easily tone it down and create a few neutral looks as well. Now onto my thoughts!

The Aura Palette is beautiful! I was very impressed with it. Not only did it swatch nicely, but the shadows applied and blended beautifully. Even some of the darker matte shades! Some of the mattes were a little on the powdery side, but I didn’t experience any issues. My only real complaint would be the shade Energy. It wasn’t anywhere near as vibrant as the yellow shade in the Prism Palette. I used this shade on the inner corner of my eye and had to build it up quite a bit to even get that kind of intensity. Which still isn’t much. Also, the shimmery shades apply much better with a dampened brush. I applied Ecstasy on my lid and when I applied it with a dampened brush that shade just popped! It makes a huge difference! You can see a look I created with Bad Habit Aura Palette below. I used Awakening in my crease, Vibe in my outer crease, Ecstasy on my lid, Energy on the inner corner of my eye, and Dreamstate on my brown bone.

I really want to collect all of their palettes. Even the dupe for the Modern Renaissance Palette (which I already own and love). I just think that they’re surprisingly great quality for the price. I wasn’t expecting to love these palettes as much as I do. So be on the look out for more Bad Habit reviews.
