Poppy Champagne

Kaja Poppy Champagne Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow TrioKaja Poppy Champagne Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio ($21.00 for 0.09 oz.) features a bright, sparkling yellow, lighter orange, and deeper red-coral. The three shades coordinated well together, and the shimmery shade could be layered with the other two to create lighter/brighter takes on those shades as well. All three shades performed well; they were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.09 oz. - $233.33 Per Ounce

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!

Starcrusher

Starcrusher is a bright, light yellow with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lid and spread easily without dropping lots of fallout. The texture felt smooth to the touch, was firmer/denser in the pan but not thick or difficult to pick up with a brush (if desired–the brand says to use fingers!). It wore well for eight and a half hours with just a smidgen of fallout over time.

Thank you! 🙂 This was a surprisingly well-received look IRL… we went out for dinner, and every single woman who came to the table complimented my eye makeup, LOL.

Have dupes, but doubtful that mine are as travel friendly as this little trio! Or as cute of packaging, either.

Do the package ingredients show Glass as one of the top ingredients? I happened to notice in Sephora reviews that one reviewer showed ingredient list on package had Glass as second ingredient and yet the ingredient list on the product page tab does not. This was the Orange Blossom trio. Very leery about this product after reading that….

This is a perfect little trio. I think the colors were really thought out well and work together beautifully. That’s pretty great that the shimmery yellow layers well over the two mattes for added versatility.

Your eye look makes me want the two that you used to create this beautiful sunset look. I have most of these shades in some form or another and if one of the Bento Boxes ends up with a light enough matte shade for brow bone I might be tempted to pick more of these up just for traveling. They are a nice size for packing.

What a cute and popping summer combo! Doubtful I can find in Europe, but may have to check this brand out.
