Today, I will be rounding up all my reviews on the Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadows that I own and have immensely enjoyed using. They will always be a staple in my kitty, which I would reach for, again and again and again! This review will be on the shade “Iggy.”
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 Iggy 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. Some of the shimmery shades have a slightest bit of gritty feel, but overall, they are pretty smooth and easy to work with. You can apply these eyeshadow with a flat eyeshadow brush or even use your fingers to pack it on. They apply and blend effortlessly.
Shade: The shade “Iggy” is described as a metallic mermaid green. True to its name, it is a dark green and has a high metallic finish. It is an absolute gorgeous color and if you love greens, this is a must have. I feel green is one of those shades that really complements brown/ black eyes very well. This shade would be gorgeous paired with fancy Indian party/wedding attires.
Pigmentation and Blend-ability: The pigmentation on these shadows is insane, fully 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. I highly recommend them to all.
In the EOTD, I have used “Iggy” all over the lid with Ardency Inn Modster with Manuka Honey Enriched Pigment in “Sunday” (review coming soon) in the inner corner. Blended a matte brown shade in the crease from my Viseart Dark Matte Palette.
