BA STAR Tropical Eye Shadow Palette | Review + Swatches

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while might remember a review I did of BA Star Pro Makeup a few months ago. I was able to try their Spicy Natural Eye Shadow Palette, and loved it. So today I am back with another review of the Tropical Eye Shadow Palette! 

Unlike the natural palette, this tropical palette features bright and lively colors, perfect for dancers, cheerleaders, or the everyday girl who just likes a pop of color! Each of the shadows is highly pigmented, and glides on the skin beautifully. The finish of the shadows is on the frosty, velvety side. Featured in the top photo, you can also buy their primer which helps the colors stay on the skin longer and make the colors even more enhanced! 

Since the colors are a bit bright for me to wear on my full eyelid, I used these as a accent color on my lower lid. These were perfect for adding a splash of color into a boring everyday neutral look. On the next use, on a day when I was off from work, I decided to play around with this palette and just create a editorial high fashion type of look, with wild crazy makeup. This palette was perfect for this. As I said above, dancers, cheerleaders, actors/actresses I could see really benefiting from this Tropical Eye Shadow Palette. 

Below are the swatches from this palette, and I will disclose that I am not using any sort of base or primer. This is the raw look of how these shadows look on bare skin.

I really am a huge fan of BA Star and their eye shadow palettes. Quality products at amazing prices. I cannot recommend this palette enough!

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.


  1. I like the purple, white, and blue shades. I think the purple would look nice as a eyeliner.

  2. My daughter-in-law would love these colors.
