Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Hope all are doing awesomely fine. When there is so much of beauty, makeup and fashion talks around in IMBB, how can one not be happy. Coming to the second eyeshadow from KIKO’s Infinity+ Sparkle eyeshadow range, I have reviewed the shade #408 Turquoise earlier.
GBP 2.80 for 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 is 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 at 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 eyeshadow pan. Although the name is mentioned on the website, it can nowhere be seen on the eyeshadow pot or the carton.

My Experience with Kiko Infinity+ Sparkle Eyeshadow #411 Anthracite:
Kiko “#411 Anthracite” is a super duper gorgeous metallic grey-ish silver black shadow with loads and loads of shimmer. It looks like a beautiful clear starry night sky. It has a shimmery finish to it. The eyeshadow is not at all chalky or dry and has an amazing smooth finish. The texture is very soft and smooth. Although there are shimmer particles in the eyeshadow, they are in no way gritty or rough. They are finely milled and you can feel them on your fingers, but not on the eyelids. They are very fine and easily visible. They add a nice sparkle to the eyelids and look 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 super good. In a single application, it looks starry black, but with multiple layers, it looks more of a silver black with a metallic tint. The color can be built up to a darker and 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 than when it’s applied directly on the lid. Also, I did not notice any glitter or shimmer fallout. In addition, it does not crease on oily lids, but yes, it does fade away from oily lids much sooner if an oil absorbent base or primer has not been used.
The shimmer particles stay and the color fades away on oily lids. It does not seem to be waterproof and can be easily removed with water.
Anthracite is an awesome shade for parties and night outs, and very apt for sparkling smoky eyes.
