I am continuing with the series on Kat Von D metal crush eyeshadows that I had hauled a while back. This review will be on a gorgeous shade called “Paranoid.”
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 Paranoid 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 “Paranoid” is the most beautiful shade of blue I have come across in an eyeshadow. I own nothing of this sort of brilliance and vibrancy in my collection. It is a bright blue color with silver shimmer throughout. The shimmer is not gritty and does not generate fall out if carefully applied. This is a very eye-catching shade and can be implemented in so many ways in your look, provided that you are open to experimenting. If you would like to play safe, these Kat Von D shadows can be used as a pop of color to an overall neutral look.
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.
In the EOTD, I have used the colors – Electric warrior, Paranoid and Danzig to create this multi-color look.
Overall, I am super impressed with this metal crush line and have loved every single color that I have used so far. Some colors are of course more wearable than the others, but that depends on your comfort level. I have no hesitation in recommending this product and guarantee you will not be disappointed.
