I am obsessed with Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadows. I own almost all the colors in this range except a few. This time around, I picked up yet another shade to add to my collection which I did not find interesting the first time around, but after watching a few youtube beauty gurus talk about it, I decided to get it. This review will be on the Kat Von D Crush Eyeshadow in the shade “Thunderstruck.”
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 parabens.
My Experience with Kat Von D Thunderstruck 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 eyeshadows with a flat eyeshadow brush or even use your fingers to pack it on. They apply and blend effortlessly.
Shade: The shade “Thunderstruck” is described as a metallic pearl. It might look very mediocre in the pan, but this is a gorgeous color on the skin. This shade pulls out the best quality of both silver and gold. It looks pretty white and silvery in the pan, but it has a gold duochrome effect when it catches the light. It has a very pearly sheen hence it makes an amazing highlight for the eyes and even the face. You can use it in the inner corner or the brown bone and it lifts the area and will complement any makeup look. I also use it as all over lid shade when I want to go for a minimalistic look yet don’t want to keep my eyelids bare. It just gives that subtle pop and glow. When used to highlight the cheeks and bridge of the nose, it accentuates and brightens forth the area without looking too shimmery. It does not cling to dry patches nor accentuates pores.
Pigmentation and Blend-ability: The pigmentation on these shadows is so opaque and so beautiful, even for a light shade as this. These shadows are also buildable hence you can layer it on top of any other matte shadow to give it some dimension and sparkle. 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 all.
