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.

Have you tried anything from Bad Habit yet?

Another week another beautiful Jouer product! When I placed my most recent Beautylish order I went a little crazy on the Jouer products. So don’t go thinking this is the end of it. Because there’s lots more to come!

I’ve never tried any of Jouer’s Lip Toppers and I wasn’t even sure it would be something I’d like. But when I saw the promo photos for the Jouer Lip Topper in Sweetheart I figured this would be the perfect time to try one.

Jouer Lip Topper in Sweetheart

Sweetheart is a shimmering true red with pink and gold flecks. The packaging is just as pretty and sparkly as the Lip Topper. I seriously couldn’t stop staring at the product inside the tube. It was so much fun photographing it too. I’m so happy that I was able to capture all of that shimmer!

Right away I noticed the sweet smell of vanilla. It’s described as a sheer, shimmering Lip Topper. However, with just one swipe I was left with the perfect shimmery red lip. You can wear the Lip Toppers layered on top of your favorite lipstick or on its own. I always wear this alone. In the photo below I’m wearing just Sweetheart on my lips. It’s not exactly opaque, but it’s also nowhere near as sheer as I was expecting. That’s a good thing. For me anyway. It applied beautifully. It felt more like a lipgloss, but much lighter. It didn’t feel sticky or heavy. And it surprisingly lasts a long time! It does transfer when you’re eating and drinking, but it leaves behind a bit of a stain. Believe it or not this was still going strong at the end of the day. I also found it to be moisturizing. My lips never felt dry even after removal.

Overall, I have to say that this Lip Topper is beautiful. I didn’t think I would love it as much as I do. I keep it on my vanity and whenever I need a little pop of color I just reach for Sweetheart and my look is complete.

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.

Bad Habit Athena Palette

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.
