If you are big on beauty videos on YouTube then you may have heard of Shop Hush. This beauty retailer sells super affordable items with their most notable items being the dupe palettes from Bad Habit. They have “dupes” aka duplicates of Huda Beauty, Anastasia Bevery Hills, and most recently Urban Decay. All of these dupes cost a whopping TEN dollars and they are very popular which means they are constantly selling out!
The Aphrodite palette is a duplicate for the Huda Beauty Rose Gold edition palette that’s fifty-five dollars. Due to the fact that I have the shop hush app, I was able to purchase the palette while it was shown as sold out on the website. Luckily, I received free shipping (it was quick too!) and 30 cents off for logging into the app daily – you know I’m always looking to save money. That’s a huge deal for me LOL. The palette came in a well packaged box, that was a bit complicated to open because I think I was too excited, and two layers of bubble wrap. Safe to say it was goodT.
The Aphrodite palette definitely surprised me when initially opening it. The actual palette packaging is thick and doesn’t feel cheap like some would assume. It comes with a nice size mirror, that makes it great for travel and I really appreciate it. Just like the HB palette it contains 18 eyeshadows but the glitter shadows are replaced with metallic shades. Some of these shades contain a thicker glitter so it looks quite differently in the pan – I can not complain for the price point.
The Aphrodite palette is perfect for the fall because it features so many berry and red shades. I already have a few looks in mind that I would like to play around with. Rihanna’s smokey red look from the 2016 VMA’s is on the top of that list.
So far my favorite colors from the palette are (pictured left to right) Crush, Jealousy, Beauty, Flirt, Lust and Adore. Each of the metallic shades feel very buttery and smooth which had me #shoOk! My swatches aren’t the best but for a more detailed look at this palette in depth Andrea Renee has a great video that you can find here.
All my makeup beginners, lovers and those who do not mind Talc and Mica in their products, you need this palette like yesterday. If I am lucky enough to get my hands on more palettes from Bad Habit then I will share them here. Stay tuned!
