BA Star is a line that is new to me. I haven’t seen it, heard of it or tried it before but I am definitely excited to show you this gorgeous palette. It is called the Midnight Smoky palette and is brand new to the line. This palette claims to be long lasting and have great pigmentation. Keep reading to see if I find that to be true!
First let’s get into the shades. BA Star’s palettes contain 5 eyeshadows. From left to right this one contains an icy white, a silver, a gunmetal, a true black, and a blue. I am not a blue eyeshadow lover but this one is really pretty.
When I put my fingers on the shadow to pick up the color I was instantly impressed. The shades are so soft and have a wonderful creamy feeling even though they are powders. When I transferred the product onto my arm for the swatches they were still showing to be very pigmented and perfect. Great high quality shades.
The Glue, which is an eyeshadow and glitter base is REALLY nice. It reminds me of Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy as far as what it does to eyeshadows, but has the lotion-like consistency of a primer like NARS Eyeshadow Base. The eyeshadow in the picture below is the lightest one in the palette. The left side is it swatched lightly on base skin and the right side is it swatched lightly on top of the Glue base. Holy WHAT! Look at the difference. It is WILD how big a difference the base made.
In the eyeshadow look below you can see the look I created with the palette and the glue base. It is so pretty and I love it. I used each shade. The gunmetal was placed all over the lid, the light icy shade was on the inner corner, the black shade blended into the crease, the silver on the lower lash line and the blue in the center of the lid.
From what I can tell on the BA Star site, the brand specializes in theater and cheerleading makeup. I can totally see that because the shades are so vibrant and long lasting. They would be perfect for those uses. I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to peruse the site and see what else they have to offer.
