I recently joined a group of bloggers with a new company called BrandBacker. I received my first opportunity shortly after to try out a brand of makeup I’ve never heard of before.

When I first saw the opportunity for BA Star I didn’t really know what kind of company it was. I just saw a beautiful eyeshadow palette and wanted to give it a try. BA Star, come to find out, is a performance makeup for those that like to dance or perform.

My complimentary sample of the smokey eye palette arrived at my doorstep and I was anxious to see some swatches on my skin. What differences would this “type” of eyeshadow have that would be different from what I regularly use?

I immediately noticed that this eyeshadow palette is very creamy. It almost has a cool, silky consistency to it. The palette comes with 3 highly pigmented eye shadows and 2 glitter gels. The glitter gels are something that I have not had the opportunity to try out from any brand so I have nothing to compare them to. But as the trend around glitter continues to grow, I knew I wanted to try my hand at a glittery eye makeup look.

To achieve the look above, I first applied my favorite eyeshadow base. Using my own eyeshadow brushes, not the one provided in the palette, I first swept the lightest cream shade all over my lid. I then applied the bronze shade to the crease blending out as much as possible. I then applied the darkest shade to the outer corner of my eye. I chose the lightest glitter gel available and with the sponge tip applicator that comes in the kit I gently pat the glitter gel onto my lids from my lash line to the crease. The glitter gel felt a little sticky to me, so I lightly pat my entire eyelid with some translucent powder before I applied eyeliner to the upper lashline. I used a small round eyeshadow brush to smudge the eyeliner line with the darkest shade of eyeshadow in the Smokey BA Star palette. I applied a coat of black mascara to my upper lashes and a coat of brown/black mascara to my lower lashes.

Have you ever worn glitter gel before? I can definitely see why the gel is necessary as it helps to hold the glitter and doesn’t make a mess with a lot of fallout when applying it. I just worry about it creasing. I think the glitter gel works the best on clean skin with no other product applied before it. I found that for me, it was best to apply the glitter gel only in a small area. I do like how the glitter gel made my eye makeup look on my eyes. For a special occasion, I think the glitter gel would work fine.

I liked the pigmented eye-shadows the most. I could definitely see myself including them in some of my everyday makeup to achieve different looks. The lightest shade ended up being a great highlighter shade while the darkest shade worked great to smudge eyeliner for a smokey, subtle look.

BA Star currently offers 4 different eyeshadow palettes to chose from. Through BrandBacker I was given a coupon code to share with you all that is good for 50% off. With the coupon code: BBSMOKY these eyeshadow palettes are just $4.37 each.

Disclosure: I’m a member of BrandBacker. I was sent a complimentary sample of the eyeshadow palette mentioned in this post from BA Star. Although product was received, opinions are still my own.
