Supernova

Bad Habit Supernova 15-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes a mix of mattes and shimmers across pink/red-toned shades–from plum to copper to magenta–with taupe and brown grounding shades and a pop of rich, violet purple. Most of the shades were pigmented, blendable, and easy to use with wear time between seven and eight hours. There were a few shades that needed to be built up or used with a dampened brush to make them perform well.

Is Bad Habit Supernova a Dupe for Natasha Denona Lila Palette?

If you’re looking to replicate a lot of shades in a single palette, this definitely comes close in color and overall quality. The more noticeable difference, across the palette, is simply is that the shimmer particles are often larger in Bad Habit’s shimmer eyeshadows (true in almost every palette I’ve tried compared to whatever original the palette seems to be duping). To a lesser degree, some of the mattes were a bit more powdery/had a touch of fallout in Bad Habit’s palette. A few of the shades that were more sparkly in the Natasha Denona Lila palette were just frost/metallic in Supernova, which may not give the same effect but then didn’t have the same fallout over time.

A few of Bad Habit’s shades were more pigmented/softer (but in a good way), which made them a bit more user-friendly. Natasha Denona’s formula has more slip and creaminess–you can see it in the ingredient list–which helps them adhere more smoothly to the lid and are less likely to emphasize lid texture (more “refined” if you will). If you more textured or drier lids, you might notice the differences in how the powders sit on your eyes more; I can typically see some of it on my inner and middle lid with thicker eyeshadows, in general, and that’s where it was visible to my eye, but only close-up. I felt like Natasha Denona’s mattes blended out more effortlessly but I only “felt” that difference when working side-by-side; most of Bad Habit’s matte shades blended out nicely (earning full ratings for application!), it just was even easier with several of the Natasha Denona matte shades. I expect that unless you study the differences and own both palettes, most would be surprised at how well Bad Habit’s formula in the Supernova palette performs. When I trialed both over primer, the Natasha Denona palette did look ~10% better than Bad Habit’s palette after 14 hours of wear.

You can view side-by-side swatches between the two palettes, but here is a summary of the shades that are most different in terms of color/finish.

  • Natasha Denona Per Se is significantly deeper and has a cooler tone to it than Bad Habit Lunar.
  • Natasha Denona Viola is redder, warmer compared to Bad Habit Red Giant (which looks more magenta).
  • Natasha Denona Amara is warmer, rustier compared to Bad Habit Celestial (which is deeper and cooler in comparison).
  • Natasha Denona Magnolia is deeper, more shimmery compared to Bad Habit Cosmos (use this shade with a dampened brush to bring it closer).
  • Natasha Denona Nude Mauve is warmer, rosier compared to Bad Habit Zenith.
  • Natasha Denona Purpure is deeper than Bad Habit Flare.
  • Natasha Denona Dragon Bite has a richer, deeper base color compared to Bad Habit Spirit (use this shade with a dampened brush to bring it closer), but Spirit didn’t have the fallout that Dragon Bite had, as it didn’t have larger sparkle/micro-glitter.

Sirius

Sirius is a pale pink with strong, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, slightly chunkier texture that applied best with a pressing motion, which helped to minimize some fallout, as this shade was more loosely-pressed, but it blended out easily along the edges. The color wore well for eight hours on me before it started to fade a bit.

Formula Overview

-

Bad Habit Beauty's eyeshadow palettes typically appear to be heavily inspired by other popular palettes, and I wanted to test several different palettes (that appear to dupe different brands) to see if the similarities are more with respect to colors, finishes, and/or formulations.

What I've noticed is that Bad Habit's formulas seem to be similar in the "type" but the ingredient lists often differ significantly, but what I mean by that is the formula isn't consistent between Bad Habit's palettes--some are much softer and more powdery, other times denser and more substantial, and it seems more linked to the original version of the palette (e.g. Anastasia's mattes are more powdery than Natasha Denona's). I think it would be more differentiating if the brand came up formulations that worked well and stuck with them throughout their palettes, as it would make the brand more reliable and consistent.

As it stands, the formulas vary wildly -- some mattes are pigmented and substantial, others are extremely powdery and sheerer; some shimmers are creamy and intense while others are softer and dustier. Same with the pigmentation; most shades have been pigmented but there has been variance. The wear has been between six and eight hours.

The quality of Bad Habit's take on a particular color scheme has varied for me from palette to palette; I think that the Artistry palette compared to the Mario palette was the brand at its highest, whereas Mystic (which appears most similar to Pat McGrath's Subliminal palette) missed the mark. Something I noticed across the palettes was that Bad Habit's shimmer particle size has been larger in almost all instances--they were less refined, less pearly, which sometimes was the "magic" in the original shade, I felt.

I have noticed that some of their inspired palettes have varied in undertone or depth slightly, but noticeable tweaks depend on the particular palette rather than seem to be embedded in the brand's philosophy. I think it would be interesting if the brand took some of the feedback that was out when the original palette was released and used that to improve upon it in certain ways. I did feel like this was reflected in their Arabesque palette (very similar to Soft Glam in color scheme) with En Pointe (which is most similar to Anastasia's Glistening), but it is much more orange-based and less golden (a complaint for Soft Glam was that Glistening was too close to Fairy, both golds).

Red Giant

Red Giant is a deep magenta with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to bare skin, but it seemed to have more slip in its base so I had to press and push the color onto my lid for more even application and just blend out the edges. It stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Brilliance

Brilliance is a muted, medium plummy-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was drier and dustier, which resulted in sheerer color coverage and moderate fallout during application. For me, it was hard to use on its own and dry, but when I used it with a dampened brush, I was able to get more medium-level coverage that built up and had much less fallout. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

Solar

Solar is a medium-dark orange with warm undertones and a gold-to-pink shifting pearl. It had good color payoff in a single layer that adhered evenly to bare skin, but it did seem to fade a bit after initial application so I felt like I needed to add a second layer to fix that. The texture was firmer, a little thinner in the pan, but I didn’t have any issues blending out the color along the edges or into other shades in the palette. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

Andromeda

Andromeda is a deep purple with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had intense pigmentation with a denser, firmer consistency that applied best with a moderate hand, dampened brush, or fingertips, but a dry brush was possible but I’d recommend pressing and pushing the eyeshadow onto the lid to get the most even application with the least fallout. However, once on the lid, it stayed on particularly well and maintained its intensity without fading after initial application as some shades can. It wore well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly.

Nebula

Nebula is a rich, deep fuchsia with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It had fantastic color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin.

I think it would be more differentiating if the brand came up formulations that worked well and stuck with them throughout their palettes, as it would make the brand more reliable and consistent.

As it stands, the formulas vary wildly -- some mattes are pigmented and substantial, others are extremely powdery and sheerer; some shimmers are creamy and intense while others are softer and dustier. Same with the pigmentation; most shades have been pigmented but there has been variance. The wear has been between six and eight hours.

The quality of Bad Habit's take on a particular color scheme has varied for me from palette to palette; I think that the Artistry palette compared to the Mario palette was the brand at its highest, whereas Mystic (which appears most similar to Pat McGrath's Subliminal palette) missed the mark. Something I noticed across the palettes was that Bad Habit's shimmer particle size has been larger in almost all instances--they were less refined, less pearly, which sometimes was the "magic" in the original shade, I felt.

I have noticed that some of their inspired palettes have varied in undertone or depth slightly, but noticeable tweaks depend on the particular palette rather than seem to be embedded in the brand's philosophy. I think it would be interesting if the brand took some of the feedback that was out when the original palette was released and used that to improve upon it in certain ways. I did feel like this was reflected in their Arabesque palette (very similar to Soft Glam in color scheme) with En Pointe (which is most similar to Anastasia's Glistening), but it is much more orange-based and less golden (a complaint for Soft Glam was that Glistening was too close to Fairy, both golds).

Cosmos

Cosmos is a light, golden copper with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. The texture was stiffer and chunkier, which resulted in pigmentation that wasn’t quite as opaque as I would have expected (this type of shade seems to be one that most brands get right). It lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me.

Zenith

Zenith is a soft taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage, which was a surprise, as this shade was rather powdery and had a fair amount of fallout when I worked with it. I definitely had to be sure to tap of excess product and be mindful to press the product into place before sweeping/buffing out the color. It also darkened a couple of shades as I worked with it on my skin, and itwasn’t as blendable along the edge to sheer it out and soften that edge. The color wore nicely for seven and a half hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

Lunar

Lunar is a soft, grayish-taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, while the eyeshadow felt smooth, soft, and blendable with a smidgen of powderiness that was contained to the pan only. It stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before I noticed some fading.

Spirit

Spirit is a soft, medium red with base paired with pearl that shifted from green to gold. It had opaque color payoff that applied evenly to bare skin, but I noticed the texture was firmer and denser in the pan, which gave the eyeshadow a thinner feel on the lid. It applied a little bit better with a dampened brush, which seemed to bring the base color foward a bit. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.

Aurora

Aurora is a medium plum with warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer with a soft, slightly looser consistency that was blendable but had a touch of fallout during application if I used it dry. The eyeshadow was easiest to use with a dampened brush, though. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Flare

Flare is a medium-dark red with warm, coppery undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a smooth, almost cream-like texture that gave it more noticeable slip. I think it was the slip that made it appear less pigmented in its base color than I anticipated, but it layered well, at least. This shade stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours before it started crease faintly.

I picked this up when you posted swatches and I really enjoy it. There was no way I could get the Lila palette to work with my budget, so I’m really pleased that there’s a more affordable option šŸ™‚

This eye shadow look is so beautiful. I had thought about purchasing the Natasha Denona palette but was scared off when the little 5 or 6 pan palette I purchased just after the brand it the platforms, did not perform well for me. I love the colour story and I don’t mind paying that amount of money if it performs well. This new addition to the blog is so helpful in deciding where to invest and what to skip. Again I absolutely love the face forward, eyes cast down, view of the makeup. Thank yo again, Christine.

When you are a luxury brand, you have to be very consistent in quality, I think, because expectations are very high at that price point so if you miss, it can turn someone off a brand entirely!

I would have to say that Bad Habit did quite a good job at duping Lila. Not 100% perfect, yet still. As I actually have the ND version, and love it, I think I can say for sure that this is a much more affordable option for one to get extremely close to the looks different ones are creating with Lila!

They did! It is very similar, but in a way, the most important part is that it performs well on its own merits, so you aren’t just getting similar colors but terrible performance!

This is amazing for the price and a little primer can fix up those weaker shades – which do live in almost every palette regardless of how expensive they are.
Gorgeous eye looks Christine.

Thank you for the Bad Habit reviews! I’ve had my eye on several of their palettes, but I’ve been hesitant to pull the trigger. I hope you have more reviews in the works!
