Today’s review will be on a cream eyeshadow from the brand “Kleancolor.” Looking at the jar, I thought it was a gel liner, but then, it can be used as one!
$5.5 with shipping and customs.
Product Description: KleanColor presents Smokin’ Cream Eyeshadow in a variety of brilliant and bodacious shades to create versatile looks of everyday adventures. The special formula of Smokin’ Cream Eyeshadow is incredibly easy to apply and blend, which can be used as all over lid color, contouring or highlight
with subtle to dramatic colors.
My Experience with Kleancolor Galaxy Smokin’ Cream Eyeshadow:
Packaging: This cream eye shadow comes in a round and tiny jar with a black lid and transparent body. This eyeshadow looks like a gel liner. If not for the name, one would definitely mistake it for a gel liner. It doesn’t come with any brush. The jar is tiny and pretty sleek, and would be safe to travel with.
Shade: “Galaxy” is a black shade with no shimmer or glitter. When you swatch it with your finger, it doesn’t come off as pigmented, but when you dip an angled brush and then swatch, it is super pigmented. It isn’t matte but has a nice glossy finish to it. The pigmentation can be built up to a maximum of 2-3 layers. Also, since it is so pigmented, it takes a lot of time for a makeup remover wipe to get rid of it completely. You need a full wipe and makeup cleansing solution to completely remove all traces of it.
Texture: This cream eye shadow has an extremely smooth texture. It gives a nice glossy finish to the eyes. It is very creamy, but has many cons too. The product doesn’t set even after 3 hours of wear time! It moves around the eyes if not set and smudges very badly. It gave me panda eyes with just 4 hours of wear time. All through the wear, it kept transferring to the upper part of my lid, as shown in the swatch. It looks cakey if layered. In the swatch, I have just applied one stroke of the brush for the entire winged liner. I haven’t gone for a second stroke of the brush. The product also feels like home made kajal, slightly oily and slick.
Staying Power: It does stay until you remove it with a makeup remover wipe, but it will smudge and transfer all over the eyes. It needs to be set with a powder immediately or you will end up with panda eyes within no time. When set, it stays on for 7-8 hours.
Pros of Kleancolor Galaxy Smokin’ Cream Eyeshadow:
- Intense black color.
- Smooth and creamy texture.
- Glossy finish.
Cons of Kleancolor Galaxy Smokin’ Cream Eyeshadow:
- Doesn’t come with a brush.
- Smudges badly.
- Needs to be set with a powder.
- Moves and transfers if not set properly.
- Takes a lot of time and effort to come off.
The number of pros and cons are almost equal and I feel that I can live without the product. For me, it’s just an average product, hence I wouldn’t repurchase this one.
