Spiked Ginger

Kaja Spiked Ginger Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio ($21.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new, warm-toned neutral eyeshadow trio that included two matte shades and one shimmery shade. All three eyeshadows had rich color payoff, blendable and easy-to-work-with textures, and lasted between eight and nine hours on me. Kaja has put out another winning trio–the format is compact, travel-friendly, and the three shades complemented each other.

Nude Apricot

Nude Apricot is a light, peachy brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was incredibly smooth and silky with a touch of powderiness in the pan. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Penny

Pretty Penny is a muted, medium-dark copper with moderate, rosy undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, smooth, and almost cream-like–dense and plush but not too heavy or stiff, so it still picked up well with a dry brush and had great adhesion to bare skin. It had opaque color payoff that stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading noticeably.

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!

Toffee

Toffee is a medium, caramel brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease along the edges. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and velvety, so it wasn’t prone to powderiness and didn’t sheer out too readily when applied. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Great little portable trio for those on-the-run moments! I really like the look you did incorporating both new trios. They work great together.
