Butter Up

Kaja Butter Up Play Bento Sculpting TrioKaja Butter Up Play Bento Sculpting Trio ($25.00 for oz.) includes a light-medium, peachy coral powder blush, iridescent peach powder highlighter, and light, warmer brown cream bronzer. The highlighter was sheerer compared to the blush and bronzer, though the brand didn’t have much in the way of claims (in any direction!) for the trio’s products. The blush could have been more blendable, but those who tend to apply over set or more matte bases should have less trouble.

Pink Cloud

Pink Cloud is a light-medium, peachy coral with stronger, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer–a little went a long way–with a soft, finely-milled consistency that felt a touch dry. I found it blended better over foundation or lightly powdered/set skin as it was more reactive to natural oils on bare skin. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

Twinkle Lights

Twinkle Lights is a very light, golden beige base with iridescent pink pearl throughout. It had medium color coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation, and the finish became more metallic with layering as well, though it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The powder felt soft, smooth, and firm–but not stiff–to the touch, so no powderiness while remaining blendable. It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Ingredients

Dimethicone, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Mica (Ci 77019), Diisostearyl Malate, Hydrogenated Poly (C6-14 Olefin), Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Phenyl Trimethicone, Sorbitan Sesquiisostearate, Aluminum Distearate, Hydrogenated Castor Oil Isostearate, Synthetic Wax, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Propanediol, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Tin Oxide, Silica.

Homemade Waffle

Homemade Waffle is a light brown with moderate, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had opaque color coverage, which tended to apply more semi-opaque in practice. It could be applied with a lighter hand or diffused for a sheerer effect with ease. The consistency was smooth, balmy, and lightweight without being tacky or overly emollient, which helped it go on evenly and work well over bare skin as well as over foundation. It didn’t have a full dry down but only had a soft sheen–so not a very dewy finish at all. The color lasted well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Ingredients

Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Barium Sulfate, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Silica, Sorbitan Isostearate, Cetyl Peg/Ppg-10/1 Dimethicone, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Paraffin, Polyethylene, Iron Oxides (Ci 77492), Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Silica Silylate, Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Cera Microcristallina/Microcrystalline Wax/Cire Microcristalline, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Magnesium Myristate, Propylene Carbonate, Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Fragrance (Parfum).

I think as a very fair girl, this would be perfect for me and i love that the bronzer has more of a golden undertone than a redy/orangy tone. A very good price too.

Also, how perfect is this stack for travelling with? not that i could put it to good use atm, but when i can again, wooaahh baby.

I’m loving the blush and highlighter a lot, but I already know that the bronzer is just too light for me. What a shame, because otherwise I would have bought this trio.

Another delightful trio of blush, highlighter and bronzer – I think the shades would work best on a fair toned complexion and they aren’t too shimmery or glittery either.

I so wish Kaja would make the single shades stackable instead of pre-made trios. I would definitely purchase more of their products if I could create my own combinations – plus, having the option would make their concept even more travel friendly!
