Compact high pigmentation eyeshadow, for an intense, even, easy-to-apply colour. Its velvety texture is ultra-blendable, releasing a particularly intense and instant-coverage colour, for high- impact, long-lasting make up. With a range of 81 shades, divided into many different finishes – from mat to satin, from pearly to glittery – eyeshadow allows you to create an infinity of chromatic effects and new looks, perfect for day or night.
Packaging: The eyeshadow comes in a small plastic round black pan which has a lid attached to it. The lid is opaque and hence the actual color is not visible that easily. The pan is packed in a cardboard carton. The ingredients are mentioned on the side of the cardboard carton in a small slip attached to it and the shade number is written on the top. The shade number is also mentioned at the bottom of the eye shadow pan. Although the name is mentioned on the website, it is nowhere to be seen on the eyeshadow pot or the carton.
My Experience with KIKO #171 Pearly Grey Ombre A Paupieres Eyeshadow:
Pearly Grey is a very gorgeous pretty basic silver color. Although there are shimmer particles in it, they are very fine in nature and are not visible on application. In no way are they gritty or rough. This shade has the effect of foiled eyeshadows and shimmers in the right way when the light hits it. It has an amazing shiny metallic pearly finish to it. The texture is velvety soft and does not seem to be chalky or dry at all. Remember to use a soft bristle brush for its application as it breaks down into powder if a rough brush is used due to its soft texture. It has a very smooth and even finishing to it and is extremely easy to blend.
The pigmentation here is very good. Just a single swipe and you will get the desired color on the eyelids. There is not much difference in single or multiple applications but the more you apply the more it shines. This shade is a staple one for nightout and parties. Pearly Grey makes a fantastic shade for smokey eyes. The staying power is good for around 4-5 hours after which it starts fading away. I would recommend using an eyeshadow base as it would enhance the staying power and brighten the shine. It did not crease on oily lids though. It is not completely waterproof either as you will need an eye makeup remover to remove it completely. Also there is not much fallout but still tap the brush once to knock off extra eyeshadow.
I totally love it especially when going out in the evenings.
