Kaja Toasted Caramel Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio Review & Swatches

 

Toasted Caramel

Kaja Toasted Caramel Beauty Bento Bounchy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio contains a sparkling light gold, golden bronze, and chocolate brown. I enjoyed using all three shades, but Gold Dust had weaker pigmentation (which may or may not be a problem you) but would work really well as a layering shade or to brighten the inner corner/tearduct space and Sunny Amber could of had a bit more slip.

Gold Dust

Gold Dust is a light gold with stronger, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (using a fingertip) but was never fully opaque unless I really packed it on and used a wet brush to do so. It seemed to have more of a translucent base, so it was more sparkle/shimmer than underlying pigment. The texture felt smooth to the touch, emollient without being thick or too densely packed in the pan. I had a bit of fallout when I initially applied it to my skin but far less than was typical for a finish like this. It wore well for eight hours on me before creasing faintly but had some fallout over time–I’d recommend using this with an adhesive spray to improve hold a bit.

Sunny Amber

Sunny Amber is a light-medium brown with warm undertones and lots of golden sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage and had similar coverage/buildability both with fingertips as well as dry brushes. The texture felt a touch drier than other shades, though it blended out well and had a couple of sparkles drop underneath my eye while I blended the edges out. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before creasing faintly and had a smidgen of fallout over time.

Gilded Chocolate

Gilded Chocolate is a medium-dark, chocolaty brown with warm undertones and a twinkling, gold sparkle. It had opaque pigmentation applied with fingertips, as recommended, though I was able to get similar coverage applied with a brush by pressing/patting on. I was impressed by the lack of fallout during application, yet the color was still blendable! The texture was smooth to the touch, more firmly-pressed but not stiff or difficult to work with. It stayed on well for nine hours with a smidgen of fallout before creasing faintly.
