Sweet Pineapple

Sweet Pineapple is a bright, light yellow-orange with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was intensely pigmented where a little went along way, while the texture was smooth, soft, and almost plush when pressed with a fingertip. It applied well to bare skin and wore well for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Sunshine Shimmer

Sunshine Shimmer is a light, yellowy gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The consistency was moderately dense, thick but not overly so (thus, it didn’t emphasize lid texture) and was blendable with just a touch of fallout during application when I used a dry brush. It had opaque color coverage that lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to have "uniform shimmer in every swipe" that is best applied "with your fingers." They have a dimethicone-heavy feel (unsurprising given it was typically the first ingredient in each shade), so there's a velvety slip that is lightly emollient but not truly wet or cream-like to the touch. I found them to be more powder-like than cream-like, but they had the binding and hold of a creamier formula. They applied well to bare skin without the need of primer, adhesive sprays, or glitter glue for pretty stellar wear--they often lasted between eight and 10 hours on me with slight fallout. I more often saw faint creasing after eight hours than much in the way of fallout.

Fingertips will definitely yield the most pigmented the quickest, but I didn't struggle to use brushes (my preferred method for precision) and found that brushes often packed semi-opaque or opaque coverage as well. I also tried them wet and didn't find that to cause issues to the pan, and it did give some shades a smoother, shinier finish but wasn't necessary to use them (more like a bonus). I didn't have issues with fallout whether I used my fingertips or brushes to apply; I pressed and gently pulled the brush across my lid area to distribute the product (same technique I use for high-shimmer/metallic shades). They were impressive; they were magical--if you love sparkly, shiny eyeshadows, they're well worth a look!

Coconut Shell

Coconut Shell is a medium brown with stronger, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which applied well to bare skin as the eyeshadow diffused easily along the edges without losing its intensity.

The texture was soft, silky-smooth, and a smidgen powdery in the pan but wasn’t prone to fallout during application. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Having UD Naked Honey, I probably don’t need this. I will say this though, I really do love how cohesive this little trio is! Great for travel!

Nice. The Kaja stacks are quite concise. Obvious and mono (not in a bad way.) Stacks have been around for decades, but current stacks are so much better than those of 20+ years ago

Not a colour combo that works for me and also just doesn’t appeal. I do have several of these stacks and they are really great. I think they are perfect for travel. I hope this performs well as I think many will really like it. Nice combo of finishes also. I have one of the early stacks that was all shimmer and so it isn’t as versatile and the newer ones.

A lovely little trio of shades, although not for me. I would have liked the shimmer shade to be a little more vibrant though. It’s a shame that the brand decided to scent it.

I’m late to the party on this review but purchased it from Sephora and wore it the past 2 days. The colors in this trio are great together. I can’t often wear yellow toned shades but this one works for me (NW22 in MAC) The eyeshadow stayed true to color all day without fading. The formula blends easily as well. This little cutie is a keeper.
