I just wanted to thank those who sent me their best wishes from my last post. I really appreciate it 🙂
So it’s been a while since I posted a make-up look. I wanted to go ahead and review this *BA Star Smokey Palette that I received through BrandBacker. BA Star is a make-up company that is known for their performance quality makeup! If you’re a performer (cheerleader, dancer, etc..) you may have heard or even used this brand.
This particular palette is called Midnight Smoky Eye Shadow Palette and is sold for $8.75. It comes with 4 shimmery shadows and a nice matte black shadow.
Here are the swatches.
First impression: The shadows are creamy and pigmented with the exception of the highlight shadows.
So it was extremely hot outside, and that’s my oily skin’s nightmare (my lids are even oilier). So everything is working against this makeup.
I used a primer on my upper lid and the makeup stayed well there but I noticed that the black shadow on the bottom is fading! Shows you how important that primer is. I decided to make the bottom part a little thicker 🙂
Well my camera died before I could take more pictures. Enjoy these camera phone/instagram pics!
Everyone meet crazy eyes. I was hot and sweating everywhere. :0
Anyway, all in all, I think this makeup is good for it’s price! It didn’t completely melt off my face during heavy sweaty time. Just remember that primer and you’ll be all set.
In other news! My Bee Whimsy GIVEAWAY is over. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR PARTICIPATING 🙂 See the winner below!
