Sparkling Rose

Kaja Sparkling Rose Beauty Bento Bounchy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio ($21.00 for 0.09 oz.) contains three plummy shades with lightly sparkly finishes. This trio seemed more monochromatic than the other trios, but those who prefer slightly less sparkle may find this one more up their alley compared to the other trios as well. The texture seemed a touch firmer/denser in the first two shades, which made application take a bit more effort.

Moscato Pink

Moscato Pink is a bright, light pink-plum with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold and violet sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer or if used with a wet brush. The texture was firmer in the pan, which made it a little harder to apply evenly with a brush so using fingertips really was best (as the brand recommended, but I’ve had good experiences using these with a regular brush!) as the warmth helped to maneuver the product across my skin better. The application wasn’t as foolproof as other trios, though. It wore well for eight hours on me, and I didn’t notice any fallout over time.

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!

Cassis

Cassis is a soft, reddened plum with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation, which was the same whether I applied with fingertips or a dense, dry brush. The texture was smooth to the touch but felt thinner and a bit more firmly-pressed in the pan compared to other shades in the same formula. The eyeshadow applied evenly and didn’t have fallout during application, and there was only a touch of fallout over the eight hours it lasted well for.

Cognac

Cognac is a medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. There were very faint sparkles strewn throughout, but it wasn’t as sparkly as most of the shades have been in the trios. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and dense without being stiff or too firmly packed in the pan. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer whether I applied with fingertips or a dry brush. It applied evenly, blended out easily, and stayed on well for eight hours on me.

The 1st and 3rd shades really do appeal to me, and I could see using both together in a look. I do feel more undecided on this trio than the other two you reviewed already. Those two I just knew that I would love to have and make good use of!

I find I don’t like this trio as much as the other two you have reviewed. The shades are all too similar and on the eye it would be hard to distinguish them. The formula is not quite as good either.
Thank you for the review Christine.

Even though Moscato Pink and Cassis are similar, this is still my favorite set. I really love the colors and could see me using them as singles, if not as a trio.

I really love this trio. These are my favorite shades to wear so likely tho pick this up at some point in time. Thank you for the review, Christine.

I do really like the colors of this one, but like most everyone else, I think the first two colors are too similar. This would have been a whole step better with the first shade being a whole step lighter.
