Continuing with my reviews of Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow line, this review will be on the shade ‘Doce’.
About the product
An innovative eye shadow with maximum pigment and extreme long wear.
What it does:
Bring a shock of metallic color to eyes. Kat Von D’s proprietary formula features Color-Soaked Concentrate™, the result of a technique in which pigment-saturated powders undergo a unique tumbling process that softens and smooths each particle until shadow is creamy and lustrous—leaving behind the highest possible levels of pigment and pearl in this ultra long-wear shadow. With a polished metal finish and 11 striking shades, Metal Crush Eyeshadow glides smoothly across the lids, saturating them with beautiful metallic pigment.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
My Experience with Kat Von D Doce Metal Crush Eyeshadow:
These eyeshadows have a sleek packaging – a see-through cap with the KVD logo. The cap closes securely with a click. It’s a travel-friendly packaging too.
This shadow is sort of dense and tightly packed, and almost has a creamy feel to it. There is no powder flying when you dip your brush in, and I find that the most effective way to pick up most of the pigment is by dragging your brush rather than just dipping it in the product.
Doce is described as a metallic copper. This is an absolutely beautiful rust-copper color with reddish orange undertone. It is a perfect color to wear for fall/autumn and looks absolutely perfect when paired with a gold eyeshadow as you can see in the EOTD to create sunset eyes. If you are someone who loves warm toned colors, this is an absolute must-have color. It is smooth, creamy and metallic to perfection.
Pigmentation and Blendability:
The pigmentation on these shadows is insane – so opaque and so beautiful. They are also buildable hence you can layer them to achieve the most vibrancy. They also blend beautifully, though blending diffuses a lot of the metallic finish. In order to merge one color into the other, you just have to do slight tapping motion on the overlapping areas and the colors merge without getting muddy. These shadows are so easy to work with which makes it a joy to use.
Simply amazing. They stay put without fading for up to 6-7 hours even without a primer. A primer will, of course, stretch that time even more. There is no creasing.
I cannot rave enough about this range. Each one of these shades has blown me away. They rival every other eyeshadow I have in my collection, and I don’t know if anything will live up to these metallic goodness. An absolute must-have!
In the EOTD I have used the shades Thrasher and Doce to create this warm autumn/fall inspired look.
