Kaja Orange Blossom Beauty Bento Bounchy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio includes three, ultra-sparkly “cream-powder” eyeshadows that are explicitly recommended to be applied with fingertips. The good news is that for those who prefer brushes, they work well with denser brushes (think shader brushes), and they were easy to use with dry brushes but could be amplified further with a wet brush. They were pigmented, sparkly, and shiny with good adherence to bare skin, minimal (sometimes none) fallout during application, and slight fallout during wear. I found they were more prone to slight creasing by the eight-hour mark rather than lots of fallout.
Though it’s not the easiest packaging to see all the shades at once, it is compact, lightweight, and travel-friendly. Each shade is 0.03 oz., which is smaller than the average full-sized eyeshadow but still plenty of product to work with (they don’t feel mini!). The price point is a sweet spot for mid-end, I think, and this type of product is great for augmenting one’s stash with its type of product (super sparkly!) and size.
Kaja Sandy Peach Bounchy Shimmer Eyeshadow
Sandy Peach is a light, peachy-pink with warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink sparkle and finer shimmer. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer when applied with fingertips, as advised (so that’s what the ratings are based on!), though I was still able to get nearly opaque coverage using a dry brush. Fingertips tended to apply the product more smoothly to the lid more quickly, almost as if it was applied wet with a brush.
The texture was smooth, emollient, and had that silicone slip I’d expect based on the ingredient list (dimethicone is first in line). I was impressed by how well the eyeshadow adhered to bare skin and how there wasn’t fallout when applied with a fingertip and barely any when I used a brush. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly on me.
Kaja Sun-kissed Tan Bounchy Shimmer Eyeshadow
Sun-kissed Tan is a bright, medium-dark coral with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation applied with a fingertip and had only a few stray sparkles drop during application. If brushes are preferred, I found them manageable but this shade was a bit sheerer and chunkier to work with, so there was a little bit of fallout during application but nothing deal-breaking, in my opinion.
The eyeshadow had a smoother, more emollient feel to it, but it was thin and held together well so it did feel a bit like the cream-powder it was described as. It stayed on well for eight hours with slight fallout over time and a bit of creasing toward the end.
Kaja Baked Cinnamon Bounchy Shimmer Eyeshadow
Baked Cinnamon is a light, golden brown with warm undertones and a sparkling, shiny finish. It had opaque pigmentation when applied with fingertips (as recommended), and it had mostly opaque coverage applied with a dry brush (rating isn’t based on that). The texture was smooth to the touch, emollient without feeling that sparkly, and it adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin without fallout. It wore well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly but had very, very little fallout.
