Kaja Neutral Moment Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio includes three matte eyeshadows in a more velvety, less powdery formula than the brand has released previously. I was surprised to see that this one and the other one launched with it were both rather light-leaning, as Kaja has been a brand that has released most of their trios without putting in very light matte shades–this is the darker of the two. The quality was so-so; the middle shade was sheerer and more powdery, while the other two shades were better.
Kaja Modern Beige Matte Eyeshadow
Modern Beige is a light beige with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well with minimal fallout. The texture felt velvety and smooth without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed in the pan. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.
Kaja Java Jazz Matte Eyeshadow
Java Jazz is a darker, golden beige with muted, olive undertones and a barely-there golden shimmer through a more matte finish. The texture was very soft, smooth, and finely-milled, but it was somewhat powdery, which led to more medium coverage. I was able to build it up slightly, but it was never fully opaque. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me.
Kaja Cocoa Dip Matte Eyeshadow
Cocoa Dip is a medium, muted brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very smooth and silky with minimal powderiness, and it “melted” slightly on my skin, which gave it a smoother finish than I expected. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours.
