While I'm pretty stuck in my ways when it comes to makeup, I had some downtime in Eugene, Oregon and decided to try a new product from BA STAR. I'm always down for a neutral shadow palette, and I haven't applied glitter in YEARS. I was missing out, because I had so much fun wearing this stuff! Keeping your shimmer neutral with gold and minimal metallics elsewhere can allow your glitter to still be subtle (therefore mature).
If you love this BA STAR palette, you can get 50% off of your own at BASTAR.com (just enter the promo code BBSmoky)! This affordable palette contains 3 high pigment eye shadows and 2 glitter gels. It's available in 4 color combinations: Smoky, Natural, Pretty N Pink, and True Blue (I'm wearing Natural).
While on the subject of cosmetics, some other favorite brands of mine are Tarte, Make Up For Ever (especially for face products like foundations and powders), and Urban Decay.
