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. There was a recent relaunch of it along with their Aphrodite palette which is 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.


Athena
-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

Bad Habit Aphrodite palette swatches
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 would 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 not the best but it's buildable. The shimmers are super creamy. I would recommend applying it damp with a finger instead of a brush. These swatches have no primer underneath.

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!

Aphrodite:
-4 soft mattes: Coy, Admire, Passion and Blushing
-6 bright to dark mattes: Flirt, Lust, Romance, Seduction, Jealously and Heartbeak
-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 similar in patchiness but have better pigment. These mattes need some work but it's not a huge loss. I think the shimmers are the best because of how pigmented it is off one swipe and it's super smooth.

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. If you absolutely hate fall out, you won't like these!

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.
