BA*STAR Pro Makeup Smokey Eyeshadow Palette

I received the following palette for review and I've been testing it out for the past few weeks so I wanted to share my thoughts on it with you all!  It is the BA*STAR Pro Makeup Smokey Eyeshadow Palette and it contains 5 different eye-shadows -- 3 mineral shadows (neutral colors) and 2 gel glitters, and it retails for $8.75. The palettes are actually available in 4 color combinations Smokey, Natural, Pretty N Pink, and True Blue. 
The company is actually #1 in Performance makeup and they specialize in competition makeup such as cheer, sing, dance, struct and any other performances; they offer a lot of different beauty items from eye-shadows, to blushes, bronzers, eyeliners and so forth.  

The first two colors Bronze and Cocoa are so pigmented and you really need a small amount of product to achieve a beautiful neutral and/or smokey look.   The color Nude (beige/gold) seems a bit chalky compared to the other two colors and not as pigmented. These three colors are not matte at all they all have a frost/metallic look to them.  The two gel glitters are very pigmented and look lovely as gel liners or even as an accent look on the lids; they are very creamy and the glitters are not rough on the eyelids at all.
In terms of staying power, I was surprised to see the colored shadows lasted pretty much all day (used with and without a primer).  The color did fade just a little bit, after about 6 hours which is still pretty good.  The gel glitters didn't last as long, they took a while to set/dry on my lids and I definitely do not recommend using the gel glitters alone without an actual eyeshadow down first, because of its gel/creamy consistency.

Overall I do like this palette mainly for the bronze and cocoa colors which I have been using a lot lately.  As far as the glitters go, I've just experimented with them since I normally only wear neutrals; but a little bit of glitter is always fun!
