I just found an amazing high-end makeup dupe for a fraction of the price! I recently had a chance to try BA Star’s Natural Shadow palette and I have to say it has the same quality and same color payoff as the shadows in my Urban Decay Naked palette!
Comparable to high end eye shadow palettes, the colors in the Natural Shadow palette are extremely versatile and blendable – which gives you access to a variety of shades. It includes three mineral shadows in Bronze, Cocoa, and Nude along with two gel glitters – Gold and Crystal.
Going for a lighter daytime look here
What I love about this palette is that you can wear the glitter as a standalone eyeliner or shadow – or you can mix it with either the Bronze, Cocoa, and Nude and create a gorgeous custom ultra glam shade of your own! I used an elf brush to apply the shadows because I wasn’t a big fan of the applicator. Nude works as a great highlighter and looks beautiful swept across your lid for a lighter day look. I’m in love with the Bronze shadow because it’s such a pretty warm color – and it very buildable – so you can go darker with this one if you like. Also, Bronze looks amazing as a liner for your lower lash line! Cocoa is the perfect dark shadow for this set, it makes a great smoky eye and works wonderfully as a liner and blended into the corners of your eye.
Bronze, Cocoa, and Nude
What I love best thought about BA Stars compact eyeshadows is that they go on beautifully – and feel like velvet! I don’t know how they did it, but it feels like a cross between creme and powder shadow. It holds very well to your skin and doesn’t feel heavy at all. They just feel so smooth, look gorgeous, and last for hours – without any primer!
