Ardency Inn is one of those under-rated brands which you don’t hear lots about. After being absolutely impressed with their eyeliners (Gold, Coffee, Black), I picked up a couple of shades from their best-selling range, which is the “Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments” having high expectations. Read on to know more about my experience with this Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigment in the shade “Rose Gold.”
A collection of organic and mineral pressed pigments enriched with mānuka honey.
What it does:
Modster Mānuka Honey Enriched Pigments come in a beautiful assortment of everyday and editorial shades with finishes ranging from matte to metallic. Each shade was inspired by the lifestyle of music artists who use makeup as a way of expression on stage and look effortlessly beautiful off stage. Superior color payoff is achieved through sky-high levels of pigments reaching up to 78 percent depending on the shade. High-grade silicon waxes provide ultralong-lasting wear, even without an eye primer. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
My Experience with Ardency Inn Rose Gold Modster Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments:
Packaging: This single eyeshadow comes in a small round case with a see-through lid. The lid closes securely with a click and is travel friendly. They are easy to pop out of their container and the compact is magnetized so you can customize your Z palette with these eyeshadows.
Texture: These shadows are dense and have a very creamy feel to it. Even though they are shimmery, they are not the slightest bit gritty. They are pretty smooth and easy to work with. You can apply these eyeshadows with a flat eyeshadow brush or even use your fingers to pack it on. They apply and blend effortlessly.
Shade: The shade “Rose Gold” is described as a metallic rose with warm golden reflects. It has a beautiful gold duochrome effect, which gives you a nice pop on the lid. It is a great everyday lid color suitable for daytime, but you can absolutely wear it on special occasions and parties, it is that versatile.
Pigmentation: These shadows have amazing pigmentation. This particular eyeshadow is even more pigmented than “Sunday” that I have reviewed previously. It goes on opaque in one swipe and does not apply uneven. There is very minimal fall out which you can control by tapping off the excess off your brush.
Staying Power: Staying power is very good even on oily lids like mine. I noticed absolutely no creasing or fading for 8 hours, the time I usually wear makeup for.\
These Ardency Inn eyeshadows are very similar to the Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadows, which I am a huge huge fan of. They have an almost similar feel (the Ardency Inn ones may be just a tad bit creamier) and yield the same intense pigmentation and have the same great staying power. They come with the same price tag of $21 expect for the fact that the Ardency Inn eyeshadow are a mere 0.06 oz whereas the KVD shadows are 0.10 oz making the former more expensive in comparison, but overall, I am equally impressed with both the eyeshadow range, and highly recommend it.
In the EOTD, I have used the shade “Rose Gold” all over the lid and some mascara. A very simple and easy look 🙂
