BA STAR is a cosmetics company that makes makeup for cheerleading, dance, and everyday occasions.
They were super-generous to send me their Natural Shadow Palette. It's comprised of 3 super-versatile mineral eyeshadows and 2 fun glitter gels.
Check out the swatches and the look I put together below.

I blended all three colors and used the gold glitter gel on my lash line. The mineral shadows are extremely creamy and feel so nice when you apply them. They are very pigmented and shimmery, which I love. It lasted all day (including running to the car in the rain) without budging. At $8.75 I definitely would purchase this palette in different colors. That's a steal for eyeshadows of this quality. I would say the quality is comparable to Urban Decay's shimmery eyeshadows.

I like the idea of the glitter gel because loose glitter is so hard to get where you want. The gel made the application precise. The only issue I had was after a few hours the gel dried out and the glitter migrated. I don't mind because I don't wear glitter a lot. The palette is worth it just for the shadows.

Overall, I love this palette. The three very wearable shades are very high-quality and the glitter gels are fun. You can shop BA STAR smoky eyeshadow palettes HERE.
