Today I am here with the most useful and must have product in every single girl’s vanity – Matte Black Eyeshadow. Mine is from the brand Kryolan which is quite close to becoming my most favorite brand.
For me, black eyeshadows are a must have. I use them to smudge the liner to get that simple effortless smokey look, to intensify a color at the crease area and to simply intensify the black color of my Kohl Pencil. I use them almost every day and it is one product that I actually finish.
That said, I have tried eyeshadows from various brands. When it comes to matte, most of them fail in terms of pigmentation. If the pigmentation is good, they were difficult to blend. If you are in search of a perfect matte black eyeshadow, search no further.
Kryolan Eyeshadow Compact matte in Black comes in a compact eye-shadow singles packing which is in the trademark silver grey color. It has a transparent and sturdy lid which will never fail. It has this lock mechanism in it, which prevents the lid from opening during travel.
The compact is packed in a similar grey colored carton in which the name, ingredient list and other information are printed. (I lost the carton).
The eyeshadow is pure matte. No shimmer. No Shine. And, it is insanely pigmented. What more can you ask for in a matte black eyeshadow. ? I have used it in almost all my eye looks and it does not crease or look patchy.
It blends easily and evenly. You need not put in much effort. It is good when I used it as an eyeliner with a wet angled brush.
I have never used a primer. I don’t have one. I just apply an n*de pencil randomly on my lids and spread it out to create a base. This eyeshadow works well even without a primer. It stays put for almost 7 hours on my lids and I am sure this will stay on forever if I use a primer underneath.
This eyeshadow has become something which I will continue repurchasing. Price is very low (just INR. 350/- ) when we compare the quality. Now, I have a neutral brown, dark midnight blue and champagne color on my list.
Availability is an issue especially when you dont have a showroom in your city. I so wish they make their products available online.
Maniac's rating: 4.5/5.
Hope you girls found my review useful. Which is your favorite matte black eyeshadow? Do share so that I can check it out.
