Last week ago BA Star was generous enough to send me some samples to review, so I wanted to share them with you all today! BA Star specializes in dance/cheer makeup, and provided me with their Holo Silver Glitter and Glue Shadow Base to try out.
The Holo Silver Glitter ($8.75 for .5 oz) and Shadow Glue Base ($8.75 for 1.5 oz) in the packaging
A look at the glitter and glue out of the plastic packaging
The holo silver glitter comes in a little pot . The weather in Vancouver was overcast and gross for a while so I couldn’t capture all the intense rainbow holo effect but you can kind of make it out in this picture!
I know this is a blurry pic.. but ooooh just look at that holo sparkily goodness!
The Glue Shadow Base comes in a plastic container with a sponge tip applicator
I tested out the glue and glitter on my hand – the glitter sticks really well to the glue! After about an hour of running errands I didn’t notice any of the design rubbing off.
I also tried doing some nail art with the holo glitter as an accent nail. I used a silver polish and while it was wet dipped my nail into the pot and rolled it around. I gently patted the glitter into place and tapped my finger to shake off the excess, then topped it with a thick coat of topcoat. The topcoat took away from the ultra-holo effect, but it still sparkled in the sunlight!
Another look at my nails with BA Star’s Silver Holo Glitter
Overall I really liked the glitter and glue from BA Star. The only issue is that I find loose glitters to be insanely messy – once you touch it it’s like honey and just seems to get stuck everywhere! I can see how these products would be great for cheerleaders/dancers though because oh my goodness – they are so sparkily! For the rest of us, I think their glitters would be a ton of fun for special occaisions or a night out, and it worked really well for doing nail art.
