Hello beautiful ladies,
My love for eye makeup is never ending and I love to try different variants of various shades. I kind of love baked eyeshadows these days. So, here is another eyeshadow from my KIKO haul. KIKO Colour Sphere Eye Shadow in #40, Gray Multicolor.
Baked silk effect eyeshadow, brilliant and easy to blend. Rich in illuminating pigments and multifaceted pearls for a special effects texture. May be used wet or dry to adjust the intensity from transparent to intense. Well tolerated by sensitive eyes. Available in 36 colour varieties.
My Experience with KIKO 40 Gray Multicolor Colour Sphere Eye Shadow:
The eyeshadow comes in a small round pan which has a see through lid to it. The pan is packaged into a cardboard carton. The pan is made up of soft, velvety plastic and is black in colour. The pan will definitely attract dirt and dust. The lid is very steady and hence can be carried around for travels. The ingredients are mentioned at the back of the cardboard carton and the shade number is written at 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.
Gray Multicolor is an absolute adorable colour, one that you would want to use again and again. It is a silver shade with strong gray undertones and lots and lots of sparkle. It has shimmery finish. The shimmer particles are clearly visible, but they are real tiny and closely held and hence the sparkling effect is magnified, but at no time does it look over the top like “I so resemble a shiny disco ball”. Also, they are finely milled and not at all gritty or rough. This eyeshadow is sure to catch a lot of attention in crowd.
The texture of the eyeshadow is super soft. It is not at all chalky. Also, since it is a baked one it is more closely held and one just has to swirl the brush over it. It gives an amazing, silky smooth radiant finishing. The pigmentation is super awesome and just a single swirl gets maximum color on the lids. The color can be built up to intensify the effect as well. Also, one can apply this eyeshadow with a wet applicator and it darkens the shade and intensifies the sparkle along with increasing the durability in terms of staying power. But, this color is already highly pigmented that I loved wearing it dry. The staying power is also good for like 5-6 hours. An eye primer will increase this to around 7-8 hours. It does not fade away a lot, but yes the sparkling intensity reduces a bit by the end of 5-6 hours.
Also, I did not notice any glitter or shimmer fallout. It does not seem to crease on oily lids, but yes it does wash off on oily lids much sooner if an oil absorbent base or primer is not used. It does not seem waterproof, but needs an eye makeup remover to remove all the color and sparkle. I am totally in love with this one. It is exactly on the edge of catching attention, but not being overboard.
