Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Today’s review will be on the third and last eyeshadow from Kiko’s Infinity+ Sparkle eyeshadow range – the shade is called “#405 Magenta.” I have already reviewed #408 Turquoise and #411 Anthracite on IMBB before. Kiko Infinity + Sparkle Eyeshadow in # 405 Magenta.
Quantity: 2.5 gm.
The eyeshadow comes in a small round pan which has a lid to it. The pan is packed into a plastic tray which secures it firmly and the tray comes packed in a cardboard carton. One can either use the pan along with its lid or remove the lid and put the pan in magnetic empty palettes available separately with Kiko. The ingredients are mentioned on the back of the cardboard carton 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 Take on Kiko Infinity+ Sparkle Eyeshadow – #405 Magenta:
# 405 Magenta is a very pretty magenta with it being on more the purple side, loaded with tonnes of shimmer. The eyeshadow is not at all chalky or dry and has an amazing shimmery finish to it. Unlike the other two shades that I have reviewed from this range, the texture of this particular one cannot be termed as very soft and smooth. I could definitely feel the shimmer particles on touching the eyeshadow. So, you will feel a little grittiness if you apply with fingers, but surprisingly, you do not feel so much of it on the eyelids and it is manageable. It adds a spark to the eyes and looks super awesome when a similar matte shade is applied as a base. It is easily blendable and the shimmer particles look evenly distributed on the eyelids.
The pigmentation is good. Although it looks much darker in the pan, it goes a little soft on the lids. It looks pretty even in a single swipe but yes not as pigmented as it actually looks. Even when you apply multiple layers it would not look that dark and pigmented which is actually what I loved about it. I think if it had been highly pigmented to match the way it looks in the pan, then it would have looked too over the top on the eyelids. The color can be built up to a darker more intense glittery shade.
The staying power is good. It stayed on me for 5-6 hours. I used an eyeshadow base and the color looked more intense. Also, I did not notice any 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. The shimmer particles stay and the color fades away on oily lids. It does not seem waterproof and can be easily removed with water.
Magenta can be used for statement eyes with n*de lipstick and then just let your eyes do all the talking.
