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.

Have you tried anything from Bad Habit? If so what is your favorite product?

  3. It looks a little too red-based for my taste as a whole, but those purple shades and shimmers are so pretty!
