Bad Habit Beauty Aphrodite Eyeshadow Palette Review:

Huda Beauty fans rejoice! The Rose Gold Palette has a dupe! Bad Habit Beauty’s Aphrodite Palette costs only $10 (Yes, you read that price correctly) and has the exact same shades as the $65 palette.

I find that to be such a foolish price for an eyeshadow palette. Why so expensive? If cruelty free companies such as Bad Habit Beauty can make beautiful affordable palettes with the same high end quality, there’s no need to spend your hard earned money on one palette when you can purchase six different ones. And, BHB has plenty of more eyeshadow dupes that I will share on my blog each week. I have three more palettes to cover for you. I already got the Retro Love Palette down, which is a dupe of ABH Subculture Palette. I’m so excited! They are so beautiful. You’re going to want them all!

BHB Aphrodite Palette features 18 shades and ranges in three finishes-10 deeply saturated mattes, 6 jewel toned metallics, and 2 chromatic pressed pearl eye shadows. This palette has a ton of versatility and you can create many eye looks for day or night.

Mattes:

Admire is a deep earthy tan

Flirt is a hot pink

Lust is a rich mulberry

Romance is a warm reddish brown

Passion is a smooth gray

Blushing is a dusty pink

Seduction is a rich cocoa brown

Jealousy is a maroon clay

Coy is a soft cream

Heartbreak is a striking jet black

Metals:

Infatuation is a smoky bronze

Love is a sparkling cranberry

Sparks is a lavish gold

Beauty is a rose gold

Adore is a rich copper penny

Euphoria is an antique gold

*The metal finishes have a much creamier texture than the pearl and matte finishes. They almost feel mousse like, and create the most fallout during applications. Be sure to have your eyeshadow shield close by.

Chromatic Pearls:

Crush is a sweet pink with a gold shift

Moondust is an astral gold illumination

The formulation of each eyeshadow is lightweight, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, has buttery smooth textures, highly pigmented, opaque, blendable, buildable, and are long lasting.

Wear time is 8 hours. After the 8 hour mark, that is when I started to notice a little bit of fading going on, but the colors stayed intact throughout the day. You can use a shadow primer to prolong the wear. The shades will appear more vibrant as well.

BHB Aphrodite Palette is available at shophush.com or you can download the shophush app and save on shipping.

She’s quite the desirable deity.

Bad Habit Beauty Retro Love Palette Review:

No need to go wasting all your hard earned dollars on ABH Subculture Palette ($42.00) glamour babes. I got just the dupe for you! Bad Habit Beauty’s Retro Love Palette, and this pretty baby only cost $10.00!

I personally do not own the Subculture Palette, but after carefully studying the shades and reading reviews. This palette is indeed a copycat and I am in love with it. It is by far more beautiful in person than depicted on the shop hush website. Product details: An ultimate throwback to the 1960’s, this 14-shade eyeshadow palette features 11 velvety mattes in bold, edgy shades, 2 duo-chromes, and a metallic bronze. Oh, and Bad Habit Beauty is also Cruelty-Free! Yay!  Psychedelic is a duo chrome pink pearl Icon is a duo chrome lime gold Hippie is a matte sage green Pop is a matte slate grey Rebel is a citron orange Mod is a matte tarnished green Rock n Roll is a matte vintage wine Peace is a matte sand Flower Power is a matte muted coral Youth is a matte warm brown Revolution is a metallic bronze Nostalgia is a matte blackened purple Fab is a matte gold mustard True Love is a matte blue green The formula is amazing. It has the same high quality texture as the higher end brands. The eyeshadows are lightweight, finely milled, velvety smooth, richly pigmented, blendable, buildable, apply evenly and easily, and flatters all skin tones. For a finely milled formula, I was super impressed by how little shadow fall out there was when applying and blending the shades together. My autumn leaves inspired look consisted of four colors in this palette-Peace, Flower Power, Youth, and Revolution. The color payoff is wow. No primer 8 hours. With primer 10 hours. There is no creasing or running, and the colors stay vibrant all day through. I highly recommend making a purchase if you’re a fan or collector of eyeshadow palettes once it comes back in stock. This one is gorgeous and does not break the bank.

You can download the Hush app and Follow their feed on IG @shophush. Don’t forget to turn on your post notifications as well to receive a reminder for the next Bad Habit Beauty Retro Love Restock.

I already ordered two more BHB palettes, which look like excellent dupes for Huda Beauty and Urban Decay. That’s all I’m saying for now.

Until the next review.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette Review:

Guess what time it is glamour babes?! It’s peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly time! Now where he at? Where he at? Where he at? Where he at? Now there he go, there he go, there he go, there he go. Sorry! This catchy tune always seems to creep inside my head when using Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.39oz), but I’m sure you saw that one coming. Lol. Just like the song, it’s a fun little palette to play with.

Product Description:

“Inspired by the social media sensation that is Peanut Butter from Too Faced’s bestselling Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Collection, they created this peanut butter palette of nine gorgeous matte and shimmer shades featuring antioxidant-rich cocoa powder with a creamy peanut butter twist! Includes their signature Glamour Guide with three looks to get you started.”

Shades:

Bananas is a soft peachy gold w/ fine gold shimmer

Extra Creamy is a matte creamy beige

Spread the Love is a medium peach w/ gold sparkle

Jammin’ is a dark chocolate w/ golden sparkle

Jelly is a vibrant orchid

Nuts About U is a matte brown w/ red undertones

Peanut Brittle is a metallic burnt orange

Peanut Butter is a matte medium orange brown

Peanut Butter Cup is a metallic golden bronze w/ gold sparkle

I will be honest. I did not pay full price. As much as I wanted this delicious looking peanut buttery palette, I thought $36 was a bit much for 9 eyeshadows. Luckily, Ulta’s Hot Buy happened to be this palette and I picked one up last week for $20!

FYI: The Too Faced PB&J Palette is still on sale and has not sold out yet online. You can call or type in your zip to find the closest Ulta Beauty store near you to check availability for pick up.

The Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette comes housed in a sturdy tin compact that includes a mirror and glamour guide inside. Magnets keep the compact tightly secure for safe travels so you don’t lose your lunch. Hahahaha! Get it? Food humor.

What I love about this palette is that you can create beautiful smoldering eyes in minutes by using only three colors along with the how-to-glamour guide, and boom you’re done. Eyes look good enough to eat.

I went the soft and sweet route (Spread the Love, Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Cup) and finished both eyes in five minutes. I was really pleased how the earthy, neutral tones complimented my skin and eye color (blue gray), and received many compliments. I will be using that shade combo quite often. Those might hit pan first. Lol.

The finely milled formula is lightweight, buttery smooth, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blendable, buildable, versatile, highly pigmented, does not crease or run, and has a rich scent of chocolate and peanut butter that is not overpowering.

The color payoff is filling. In a good way. Without Primer 5 hours. With primer 8 hours. All this talk of savory and sweet is making me thirsty. Excuse me, while I pour myself a nice tall glass of almond milk. Ahhhhhhh.

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette is available at Ulta and TooFaced.com.

Thinking of getting one?

Do tell!

Stay beautiful, xo.
