I am going to review Viva Brilliant Color in the shade “Dragon Fruit” from Kryolan. It is a single colour eyeshadow pan and it is a beautiful shade which you can use to create a statement look. This shade is available in some Viva Palettes as well as sold individually. You can also buy it as a refill separately to fill up a used up shade in your eyeshadow palette. Read on to know more about it.
Price and Quantity:
INR 450 (3.5 grams)
Product life: Recommended use is within 18 months after opening. Mine is already 36 months old and it is in a very good shape and texture. So, it definitely meets high quality and longevity standards.
Viva Brilliant Color is a new make-up concept which is suitable for eyes, face and body. Viva Brilliant Color is a color intensive pressed powder with pearlescent effects which can be applied dry or with a moistened brush or sponge. This technique will once more strengthen the color effect and its adhesion. The pearlescent Mica pigments which are used are responsible for the exclusive luster and glitter of the product. No metallic pigments are being used.

My Experience with Kryolan Viva Brilliant Color Dragon Fruit:
This is a duo-chromatic shade from Kryolan meaning that though the colour looks like a pink eyeshadow at first sight, it reflects a blue shade in light. This is what makes this product more special. You can create a very dramatic look on your eyes with single colour.
The colour pigment is good and can be build up for intensity. It gives a very lustrous and shiny look on application. It can be used as an eyeshadow for beauty looks and it can be use on the face and body for high-fashion looks, photoshoots, etc. The colour retains it shine easily for 6 to 7 hours. Apply a concealer/primer/foundation on the eyelid and directly apply the product. It will give a strong and long-lasting look. This shadow can also be used with water which makes blending very convenient. I have done a dummy look on my arm as shown below.
Pros of Kryolan Viva Brilliant Color Dragon Fruit:
- Fine texture.

- Amazing and unique shade.
- Long-lasting and durable.
Cons of Kryolan Viva Brilliant Color Dragon Fruit:

IMBB Rating: 4.5/5
Would I Recommend Kryolan Viva Brilliant Color Dragon Fruit?
Definitely Yes. The shadow lasts for a long time. The quantity is very good and it offers a great shiny finish and long stay time. It is a great value for money.
