Continuing with my review on the amazing metal crush eyeshadow line by Kat von D, this review will be on the shade “Electric Warrior.”
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. It is formulated without parabens.
My Experience with Kat Von D Electric Warrior Metal Crush Eyeshadow:
Packaging: 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.
Texture: 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.
Shade: The shade “Electric Warrior” is described as a bright citron green. It is indeed a very metallic bright lime green color with a bright yellow undertone with similar colored shimmer particles which give it an even more intense appearance. This is a very beautiful and unique color and I don’t have a color like it in my collection. This color looks beautiful both on the lid and as a bright pop of color either on the lower lash line or inner corner. This color can also be worn toned down by pairing it with more earthy shades like brown but either way it is sure to grab attention and have people asking what are you wearing on your eyes.
Pigmentation and Blend-ability: 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.
Staying Power: 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.
Overall, this is an amazing collection of eyeshadows and I love every single color I have from this line. If you are in a mood to experiment with bright bold colors as your eyeshadow, you cannot go wrong with these super pigmented, easy to work with, long wearing shadows. I highly recommend them all.
In the EOTD, I have used the colors Electric Warrior, Paranoid, and Danzig to create this peacock inspired multi-color look.
