BA Star Chocolate Star Dust

Over this weekend I wanted a natural eye look to wear out while shopping the Labor Day sales. Nothing too fancy, just an everyday eye with neutral browns. I even skipped my every day eyeliner! Keepin' it real. I also wanted to experiment with a fun eye product by BA Star that they were kind enough to send me to try out. See the look below:

As a base I used my favorite Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded (oh my gosh -do I ever shut up about it?!) I slathered that all over my lid, and used it to brighten up the inner corners of my eye as well. Barely Branded is the pearly nude you're seeing along my upper lash line. 

Then I went in with Chocolate Star Dust by BA Star, a bronze shimmery, pigmented loose shadow filled with golden glitter. It is an intense color, but is absolutely gorgeous. To give you an idea of what kind of shimmer/glitter I'm talking about, BA Star's main market is cheerleaders who use the makeup for bold glimmering looks that last all day.

I wanted to keep this look toned down, so I used Chocolate Star Dust on the outer corner and crease of my eyes. It blended out really well, and you can see it added some color and dimension to my lids. I really like how it turned out. 

To really get a feel for Chocolate Star Dust, here's how it swatches.

Can you tell from the right side swatch how amazingly bronze and glittery this is? It is fantastic! I blended it in on the left, and that's more of the look I was going for today however it was a bit more muted on my eyes. 

You have to be careful to avoid fallout under your eyes with this loose shadow (typical of most loose shadows) and definitely make sure to use a base or primer of some sort so you can hold that shadow on all day (Barely Branded functioned as my base today). I wore Chocolate Star Dust for 11+ hours and it looked fresh and didn't crease even after hour 11. I'm impressed.

You can get BA Star makeup at their website, and make sure to follow them on Facebook, too!
