I was recently able to review a neutral eye shadow palette from BA Star (you can see that post HERE) through BrandBacker and I was surprised at the high quality of the shadows. So when I saw the opportunity to review a bright colored eye shadow palette, I jumped at the chance.
BA Star is the number one online retailer of makeup for the dance and cheer community. When I first heard this I immediately guessed that this meant that the makeup was long-lasting and vibrant.
Let's be real, the case isn't very exciting and I'll probably end up tossing the included brush. But because of my previous experience with the neutral palette, I now know to not judge a book by it's cover.
Look at these shadow colors! Do they look familiar to you?? The main reason I wanted this palette was it's extreme similarity to the Urban Decay Electric Palette (which is $49 by the way)!
These colors are super pigmented and vibrant. They apply very easily and smoothly. This palette can be used to create a vibrant eye look but you will need more neutral shadows to complete the look.
Here is a rainbow-like look I created using this palette. I wanted to use all of the colors so this look is a bit over the top but I loved the final product!
I started with the BA Star Eye Shadow base as a primer. I then used the sponge tip of the included brush to add the green color all over the lid. Next, I blended a neutral matte brown shadow in my crease. I packed on the purple color in my outer "V". Then I added the pink shadow slightly above the crease. I reapplied the green and purple on my lid to make them more vibrant after all the blending. Finally, I placed the silver color in my inner corners. I used a blue Milani eye liner in my waterline and upper lashline. I also lined the upper and lower lashlines with the blue from the palette. I used Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara to finish off the look.
This is a wonderful eye shadow palette. I truly don't feel like I need the Urban Decay Electric Palette anymore! The best part, this palette is only $8.75 and you can find it HERE. AND, until July 4th, my readers get 50% off with the code 50TROPIC!
Have you guys ever tried BA Star products??
