My Experience with KIKO Infinity Eyeshadow #238 Mat Light Taupe
#238 is again a Taupe shade like the one I reviewed before (#239) but a shade lighter though. This one too has gray undertones. Shades like these do not look good on me if used as an overall eyeshadow on the lids. But yes these shades work wonders when used as transition shades or say to deepen your crease. There are absolutely no shimmers in this eyeshadow. The texture is super soft. This shade does not seem to be chalky either on your fingers or after application on the eyelids. The finishing is matte. It is super easy to blend away with other shades. Also depending on the kind of brush you use, this eyeshadow may break into powder. So either use your fingers or soft brush.
The pigmentation is very good. Single swipe brings out the color on the lids. Also with this shade, you can go light on the outer corner of the eye and using a shading brush pull in the color from the outer corner into your crease. Layering it helps in adjusting the intensity as well. It does not look cakey with multiple layers. The staying power is around 4-5 hours. It does look a little darker when applied on an eyeshadow primer. Also the staying power increases a bit when applied on primer. It did not seem to crease on oily lids. #238 is not waterproof and can be easily removed with water as well.
As I mentioned in the previous review for #239, these shades if applied on their own on the overall eyelids make the eyes look more dull and hollow. But these are good transition shades for defining the eyes and also for smokey eyes. Again it is not a must-have shade, but for the one who loves eye makeup like me, having such shades in the stash helps some way or the other.
