Now with the pandemic going on and everyone wearing masks, my focus has shifted from lipsticks, lip-glosses, and lip-balms to eyeshadows. I was on the Sephora website looking for something. I don't remember what, but as usual something else caught my eye. It was the cutely packaged Kaja Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio and the Kaja Cutie Bento Creamy Lip & Cheek Duo. Today I have the eyeshadow trio in shade Glowing Guava and the Creamy Lip & Cheek in the shade Sweet Sangria.
Sephora website says this is “A stacked, creamy, powder eyeshadow in curated trios of shimmers or combinations of matte and shimmer shades. hese bouncy eyeshadows come packaged in bite-sized shimmer stacks or trios of matte and shimmer pigments that apply effortlessly with your fingertips. Kaja’s Glitter Arrangement Technology delivers uniform shimmer in every swipe—perfect for quick, easy eye looks on-the-go.”
This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.
I really liked the cute packaging and how portable the eyeshadow is. It even has a mirror. The matte shades in Glowing Guava are very pigmented, smooth and easily blendable. Glowing Guava's shimmer shade is beautiful and multidimensional. I did not experience any fall out with the shimmer shade, which could be because I always tap the excess shadow off of my brush, particularly while using a shimmery/glittery eyeshadow shade. The mattes have a mauvy tone and they all blend beautifully together as the whole look comes together.
The matte shades have a better staying power than the shimmer shade. I did not find them bouncy though. Overall, I think I might give other shades in this line a try.
The shade I tried is Sweet Sangria. Sephora says “ these are an ultra-blendable, multifunction, creamy lip and cheek duo for a natural wash of color. Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, and phthalates. This product is also vegan and cruelty-free. These multi-use, creamy, lip and cheek colors come in super-cute stacks of two shades that blend out or build up. Use each shade alone on lips and cheeks or blend with the second shade to create a custom color.”
This stackable compact has two shades. The first is a lighter mauve pink. I would describe the second as a darker deep berry shade. Both the shades are creamy, blendable and pretty pigmented. I love the darker shade looks so natural and pretty on the cheeks. Paler beauties need not worry, you can build it up or tone down the colors to your liking.
