These shadows have a creamy texture and I recommend patting them on instead of swiping, and then you can blend. Blending does fade them a bit, but they can easily be built back up to the desired pigment. The first three colors are a beige, a gorgeous orange/bronze, and a deep cocoa. They are all extremely shimmery.
The last two colors add the 'spice' to this palette: a plummy purple and a yellow/gold.
Here are all of the shadows without any primer. Decent pigmentation. Average fallout, but nothing that ruins your look or you can't brush away.
But...it gets better!
With a thin layer of the BA Star Body Shimmer Base underneath and much less of the eyeshadow, the results are spectacular. Just pat on to well-primed eyes and you get luxurious, almost 'foiled', looking color. I am so loving that purple!
Wear time is great. Lasts the whole day on me! (so 12+ hours) There is some minor glitter fallout throughout the day if I am in a rush and missed a tiny spot during priming because these really perform their best when held to the skin with a base.
On the eyes, they are very, very glittery, but a wash of the beige on my brown bone is subtle enough for some daytime sparkle!
Every time I try BA Star products, I honestly like them more and more!
