This is the review of a very favorite eyeshadow shade from my stash. I do not have a true red shade in my stash and thought this will be one. Well, it is not. But that does not stop me from loving the color. Read the review to know why.
Iridescent, micro-fine eyedust powder for brilliant shimmer effects. A total of more than 200 pearlescent colors create extraordinary impressions on eyelids and skin.

My Experience with Kryolan Satin Powder SP 551:
Packaging: The packaging of the satin powder is very similar to the glitter pots except for the fact that these come in cute, blue paper boxes. The shade and ingredient details are mentioned on the box. Also, the information is provided at the back of the plastic pot. These are grey plastic pots with a hole on the top and a transparent plastic cap. You can bring out the product through the hole in your palette or on the transparent cap and use it. The cap twists and closes perfectly and thus, it is super convenient for travels too. But please be careful while using it as you may end up bringing out more product than needed.
Texture: The texture of this satin powder is indeed very satiny and smooth. It gets applied like a dream on the skin. One swipe of the product gives the perfect color and coverage. I generally prefer applying concealer on my eyes and powder it well before applying the shadow. It has an amazing color payoff when applied with a sponge applicator. With the brush, the color needs to be built up gradually. I am okay with both and I choose the application tool according to the need. It never shows any clumpy application on the eyes.
Color: This is a duo-chromatic pinkish red kind of shade. It reflects light and it gives a pinkish red color and a light pink highlighter kind of effect under the light. You can see this in the swatch too. I love the pastel kind of shade and also the fine shimmery finish makes it even more beautiful. If you are planning to do a sunset eye makeup, this will be a nice color to play with. Also, most Indian bridal eye makeup needs a good red shade. This is the one for that purpose.
Staying Power: These colors stay on the eyes for long. As it is powdery, there can be some fallout initially during application but once it is set on the eyes, it stays for long. Also, I do not see any creasing. It may not get removed completely with water. So, I generally use an oil-based remover to remove it in one swipe in a hassle-free manner.
Overall, I am pretty happy with the product. It is cost-effective and the color is beautiful.
