Ive been getting so backed up on blogging, its ridiculous! Sorry for the delays :/ I found these products at the bottom of my pile of products waiting to be reviewed. I actually hadnt tried them out until today!
BA STAR is actually a company that makes makeup designed for dancer and cheerleaders. Their products are also great for some costume looks..and I think they have quite a few products that you could use for every day too!
Because the products are designed for dance they are really well pigmented, and last super long through sweat and everything! Most are very glittery, which is why I think they could be good for costume, but only some for every day..but with dance being so popular right now (dance moms and shows like that have made dance verrryy popular) I figured Id go ahead and review this stuff anyway! :D
Pretty much everything on the site seems to be around $8-$9 (except for kits with more than one product)..butttt since its for dance, they have great deals for buying in bulk for teams..so if you buy 6 or more theyre only $5 each! (im not sure if that works if you buy 6 or more in different colors, or if you have to buy all 6 in the same color, i imagine you would have to buy the same.. ill check on that though)
I didnt get the chance to check out all the products I wanted to..like the blush, bronzer, liner/mascara, and high pigmented shadows..but heres some that I id get to try:
(Heres a swatch of the shadows separately and blended)These are the Natural and Smokey shadow palettes. They also come in pink and blue. These are NOT like regular eyeshadows. You cant tell that well from the pictures but these are very shimmery and have a lot of glitter in them. They have three shadows (first 3 on the left) and two glitter gels (last 2 on the right) These shadows are suuuuper well pigmented, super smooth, and actually have really nice color payoff. They go on like butter and blend better than almost any eyeshadow Ive ever used. If you love shimmery shadows you will LOVE these. Theyre actually really cheap too! $8.75. ($5 each if you buy 6 or more!)
(Heres a swatch of the glitters over the glue)This is their Glitter Glue and Loose Glitter. The glue can be used under glitter or eye shadow. Its sweat resistant and long lasting. The glitter is suuuuper fine. It can be used on body, face and hair. Works best over glue, but doesnt have to be. The glitters are available in tons of colors. The glue and glitter are sold separately, for $8.75 each. ($5 each if you buy 6 or more)
The glitter kind of made a mess, but all glitter kid of does. I also checked to see how easily it comes off, most wiped off fairly easily with just a towel, then i loosened the glue with some makeup remover and wiped it clean with the towel. There is glitter all over everything now, but thats okay! :P
They also sell bags, glitter stickers and hair bead things and custom kits you can select the colors or products you need for your team. Everything is priced really well! If you have a studio or dance team you can request free samples. All orders over $50 ship for free, and all orders ship within 24 hours. You can see all products mentioned and much more at BASTAR.com
