Cut crease eye makeup is in trend these days and I wanted to try it badly. In this method, the general trend is to fill the lid with a light highlighting shade. I was searching for a pink highlighting shade for so long and when I saw this one, I could not resist the urge of buying it. The shiny, metallic effect in it makes it a very favourite product of mine. Know more about it in the review below.
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 554:
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 in 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 amazing color payoff when applied with a sponge applicator. With the brushes, the color needs to be built up gradually. On the lid, I generally use a sponge applicator to get very good coverage. But when used for highlighting the cupid bow, I use a brush to get a highlighted effect. It never shows any clumpy application on the eyes.
Color: This is a super pearly, velvety, pale pinkish highlighter. The color once swatched, looks like a high end highlighter. The color is beautiful and it will suit all the skin tones. It has a silvery shine with no glitters, therefore, it becomes perfect for highlighting. It helps to make the eyes look big and bright. If you are planning for a bridal eye makeup look, this is the perfect choice to brighten up the inner side of your lids.
Staying Power: This color stays 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 and in a hassle free manner. Overall, I am pretty happy with the product. It is cost effective and the color is beautiful.
