Hold on to your eyeshadow brushes glamour babes, I have more dupetacular news to share with you!
Are you ready for this one?! K, here it goes…….
Deep breath in. Pause. And out.
Bad Habit Beauty’s Newest Eyeshadow Palette, Athena ($12) is a dupe of Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Palette!!!! ($65). They are identical to one another. Its craymazing!
I know. I’m becoming a Bad Habit Beauty junkie, but my addiction is saving you money in the process, and I am more than happy to bargain hunt for my awesome followers.
Let’s take a peek at the comparison.
Inspired by the Greek goddess of wisdom, this 18 shade collection features four unique textures. Athena has 8 soft and bold mattes, 6 buttery pearled shimmers, 3 shade shifting duo chrome toppers, and one eye-catching glitter.
Fierce is a pearl medium gold.
Triumph is a pearl taupe.
Valour is a soft orange sherbet.
Purity is a soft custard.
Truth is a muted taupe.
Heroic is a warm medium brown.
Gleam is a soft brown with a green to blue shift.
Epic is a shimmering lavender with a blue violet to pink shift.
Medusa is a shimmering golden pink.
Justice is a dark purple magenta.
Lore is a terra cotta orange.
Power is a warm medium red.
Divine is a pearl medium copper penny.
Cunning is a sparkling peach with a gold to pink shift.
Wisdom is a deep grape jelly
Prize is a copper cranberry red.
Daring is a glittery dark copper. This is the eye catching glitter finish. The glitter is quite chunky, so you will need to use a glitter primer or adhesive of some sort to keep this shade from migrating throughout the day. A flat rounded eyeshadow brush or finger tip works best when applying, and it creates the most fallout out of the 18.
Clever is a rich cocoa with a purplish red undertone.
I seriously could not stop staring at this palette when it arrived, I had a hard time putting Athena down. I felt like Gollum from Lord of the rings for a moment-“My precious! Must protect the precious.” Snapping out of it. Lol!
The formula is amazing. Lightweight, buttery smooth, creamy, insanely pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blends out evenly and easily, buildable, produces little fallout, and flatters all skin tones. It’s hard to believe that this a $12 palette. Athena looks and feels very high end.
Wear time with a primer is about 8-9 hours. After that, I started to see the bold colors of the desert slowly fade into the night.
