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.

  1. This palette is BEAUTIFUL! I’m trying to be a lot more mindful with my purchases but at $12.00 this is awesome! I have heard many great things, too, about this palette, and brand in general.

    Also, totally understand how blogging can take a back seat. Some days it’s hard to manage it all, so don’t sweat it! I am also working on being more phsyical and trying to shed some weight – the first month has been going good, but still not doing well with a eating plan. BLAH.

    • Isn’t it??? It was just too good of a deal to pass up.

      I hear you on the eating plan. It always starts off good and ends horribly lol. I’ll have to plan better this weekend. I’m determined to get back on track.

  2. I instantly thought of ABH Prism when I saw this palette but the pigmentation is definitely way better!

    • It’s very similar, huh? I know the ABH is much better quality, but I just didn’t care for the last one performed so I went with the dupe.

  3. Babes I totally understand about blogging taking a back seat. I am going through that phase now. Coming back to the palette I am loving the pigmentation. Gotta figure out how to get my hands on it here in Dubai.

  4. Wow, I am loving all those metallic shades. Very beautiful. Also don’t feel too bad about the blog, we all know how life can happen sometimes!
