Review: Bad Habit Athena and Aphrodite palettes

Bad Habit Athena and Aphrodite PaletteI found out about Bad Habit weeks ago from Reddit. I really wanted to buy Athena but it was sold out on Hush for awhile. There was a recent relaunch of Athena along with their Aphrodite palette only available through their app. I managed to pick up other palettes as well so I'll share those once I get some use out of it! Both of these are cruelty-free! You can view the ingredients here.

-5 neutral mattes: Valour, Purity, Truth, Heroic and Clever
-3 bright mattes: Justice, Lore and Power
-6 pearl shimmers: Fierce, Triumph, Divine, Cunning, Wisdom and Prize
-3 duochrome topper shades: Gleam, Epic and Medusa

-1 glitter: Daring

I prefer blended swatches over packing on color because that's just not how you use it on your lid.

I wanted Huda's desert dusk palette but there's no way I could drop $65 for that.  I found out Bad Habit makes dupe palettes. This was only $12! My favorite shades are the duochrome toppers. The mattes seem to perform better with this palette than the ones in Aphrodite. The mattes are buildable and the shimmers are super creamy.

I've never used glitter so I couldn't do a proper swatch/look with glitter glue. I'm also not comfortable putting chunks of glitter near my eyes. It is a pretty color though!

-3 neutral shimmers: Tease, Infatuation and Euphoria
-4 bright shimmers: Sparks, Adore, Beauty and Love

The mattes are really soft and look pigmented until you blend it out. For these shades, I had to do two swipes. Passion was at the top for patchiness. Admire and Jealously are similiar in patchiness but have better pigment. The mattes aren't amazing but you can work with it and build it up. The shimmer shades are so smooth. These are really pigmented from just one swipe.

Aphrodite is a dupe for Huda's Rose Gold palette.

Both of these palettes are affordable and wonderful dupes. My favorite palette would have to be Athena just because of the color selection and matte performance.

When I first heard about Hush, I immediately thought of counterfeit makeup. That was just my assumption based on their Facebook ads. Well, I was wrong. It's a legit shop. I would recommend downloading the app and adding in your information in preparation for the next relaunch. Right now, Aphrodite is in stock and Athena isn't.

Spirited Away Dress

Has it been over a year since my last outfit post? Probably longer. I'm going to slowly start to creep in once in awhile just to share a few things. I occasionally still post on IG though.

I got this dress about two weeks ago from Hot Topic because of a sale going on. I managed to pick up two more dresses that I may photograph later. Spirited Away is one of my favorite movies and I love No Face. Couldn't stop myself from getting it.

This dress normally goes for $59.90 but I scored it for $36. Looks like you can get it for even cheaper at $25 now.

There were mixed reviews on the website but looks like all are missing. I match to the larger set of measurements on a size Small. I fit decent in the dress. It's a form fitting dress so I have to step into it haha. The downsizes: this waistband has no stretch and the arms are slightly tight. A size up might be way more comfortable to wear!
