I love how it adds just an extra something special to my eyes on a lazy day. I spritz a little bit of fix plus on a brush and pat Kitschmas onto my lids and as long as I’m careful with how much I put on my brush the fallout isn’t terribly bad for a loose pigment.
When I layer it over Soft Ochre paintpot, I find that it doesn’t crease and stays put on my lids longer and doesn’t fall out onto my cheeks throughout the day. I would highly recommend it to someone who’s looking to buy their first pigment!
Kitschmas is described as a “shimmering pink mauve pearl.” It’s a pinky-lavender with subtle cool undertones and a frosted finish. The texture of this is slightly chunky, so it is best applied with a damp brush as this will help it smooth out and apply with more color payoff (and less fall out!). It wore well for seven and a half hours, and after eight hours, there was some slight creasing. It’s part of the permanent range. Urban Decay Grifter (P, $18.00) is darker. MAC Cheers My Dear (LE, $21.00) is similar–more metallic. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #1 (LE) is darker, less metallic. Bobbi Brown Cool Lilac (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned and a cream product.
