Review: BA Star Spicy Natural Eye Shadow Palette

As you all know I am a HUGE makeup fan. I love being creative and playing with all sorts of new colors, but I also like something simple for day time use. I'd like to introduce you to BA Star. This company offers a vast selection of makeup that is geared toward performers, dancers and cheerleaders. But really its perfect for the everyday woman who is on the go and wants her makeup to stay put all day.

Although I am not a performer, dancer or a cheerleader, I do have a job where I am constantly on my feet, moving around, getting sweaty, so my makeup really gets put to the test. So my next work day, I broke out this palette and gave it a shot. I applied my makeup as normal, and when I got to my eyes, I used the BA Star Body Shimmer Base Glue that BA Star was kind enough to send along. It was very easy to apply and place onto my eye lids and lower lash lines. Then I started applying the colors, using the copper and dark brown color on my lid and crease, the light tan color on my highlight, and the plum purple color on my lower lash line for a bit of color. Applying the color was so easy, very simple to blend, almost a creamy type of texture. The colors are very pigmented, so a little went a long way. I applied the eye shadow at 7 am, and at 6 pm when I went to take my shower, the colors had faded only slightly. My other facial makeup didn't look too good, but my eye shadow was still pretty good. I was very impressed. Taking the shadows off was fairly easy. Just used my normal eye makeup remover and after 2 swipes all residue was gone. 

I love the color selection not only with this palette, but also the other palettes that BA Star has available online. The eye shadow palette is also very affordable at only $8.75, which equals out to be $1.75 per shadow. The body shimmer base is also $8.75. Super value for some fantastic products. 

Overall I am very pleased with this eye shadow palette. I have been using it daily since I received it, and I am loving it! Be sure to check out BA Star's website for custom face charts and helpful videos using their cosmetics. 

Please scroll through the photos I have taken, at the bottom you will see some swatches I took of all the eye shadows both with and without the base. 

Please note that I was sent this product complimentary to try out in my home in order to share my honest experience, thoughts and review.
