Dior is coming out with some limited edition cream eyeshadows this Summer. Having never loved cream shadows at the start of my makeup life and now suddenly completely a convert to them, I find the Dior release terribly exciting to say the least.
Now I spend most of my makeup existence gathering up cream eyeshadows. Some are super great, some not so much…Kryolane Aqua Pearlshades is a bit of an over hyped product on indie makeup blogs and with youTube gurus. I fail to find the joy sadly.
Have you tried them?
Oh hello there Kryolan Satin Eyedust Powder Eye Dust you’re so incredibly affordable that the Muse feels every so inclined to share you with the rest of the world.
Jump for it.
Available in almost 50 shades and in a .12oz size Kryolan Satin Eyedust Powder Eye Dust beats many mineral company shadows in price and size. Loving the huge size and ridiculous price tag of….guess….go on guess….$6 bucks!
The size, pigmentation, shade selection, and price make these great shadows a super deal for anyone who loves a bit of sparkle and shine.
I got two of these off of E-bay but they are for sale on www.funhousetheatricalcostumes.com if you’re interested or most E-bay sellers carry ’em at retail which is six bucks.
The formula is quite smooth and applies nicely with minimal fall out. The packaging is very friendly as it has a small spout for tapping just the right amount out without making a mess. It wears long when your eye is prepped and primed correctly and pigmentation is very, very good. I only experienced one problem which was blending shades. I noticed shades wore great alone but when blended with other colors I created a bit of a mess but chalk that up to my technique.
The colors I have are SP661 which is a mint green and SP552 which is a baby pink. I felt like both shades had a frosty finish….a bit of a sparkle yes but a bit of frost thrown in as well. Blending out you can get a soft, velvet finish minus sparkle or frost if you use a light layer and blend evenly.
Choose from a crazy variety of shades!
Overall, if you’re looking for a great deal these are sooooo affordable at $6 bucks each and come in a variety of shades suitable for any and all kinds of looks you’re wanting to create. Many mineral companies have big selections as well and inexpensive prices but I thought the size of these was very nice for it’s price tag.
Muse Approved for purchase.
Fab little deal.
It’s easy to compel the Muse when the the name of a product includes the key words “glamour” and “sparks”. Glamour, for sure. Sparks? As in sparkles? Ok, I’m in! Kryolan Glamour Sparks is bringing the sparkle and the glam along for this ride!
Kryolan Glamour Sparks is a brand new loose shimmering powder available from Kryolan. This finely milled, iridescent powder with it’s shimmery finish is available in 9 shades for $12 USD each.
The pots are fairly a large size and are easy on the application due to their cool packaging design. The “sparks” are housed in standard jar with a separator that has a hole on top. This hole makes for less mess when using the product as you can easily tip a small amount of the product into the lid for application or dip your brush end in it for just the right amount of powder without causing a major mess.
The powder itself isn’t terribly pigmented but more of a shimmering layer which would best be used over another shadow. In my picture below I used Silver all over my lid for just a hint of sparkle but they do work best when paired up with a shadow for a bit of a dramatic effect. If you own alot of matte shadows this is the perfect companion to create a bit of sparkle when you’d like to spice things up. On their own they work equally as well but aren’t pigmented enough to create a deep eye look. The texture is quite silky and almost reminds me a bit of MAC Solar Bits but with alot less fall out and ease of blending is considerably better as well (I’ve always found Solar Bits difficult to work with!).
Kryolan Glamour Sparks can be used on your eye obviously but they are rather great for highlighting cheeks or your arms, legs, etc for a bit of sparkle…..plenty of product comes in the jar so it last ages. You do need to prep and prime properly prior to use as they do tend to slip and slide off the eye rather quickly but with proper application they’ll last all day!
The Muse is a shimmer, sparkle, and glitter lover so Kryolan Glamour Sparks are definitely right up her alley.
Tell the Muse!
