I have been enjoying using my High Pigment Wet and Dry Eyeshadow in 84 Pearly Green (click here to read more about this shade) and so I picked up two more shades to try out when I was in store recently. There is a good selection of colours in the High Pigment Wet and Dry Eyeshadow range and these two shades caught my eye. I love orange and purple eyeshadows and these two products had micro sparkle through them, making them extra pretty. I just couldn’t resist trying them out!
I chose shade 20 Pearly Tangerine. 20 looks as the name says – a beautiful medium orange-tangerine with a pearl finish. It has very faint, micro gold sparkles through it which sparkle in the light. The sparkle does transfer to the lid but it is extremely faint and only gives a slight glimmer on application. I think this product is really nice for if you like the look of sparkle but want it to be very natural and toned down. The texture is very soft and smooth.
The eyeshadow can be used dry or wet, depending on your preferences. I used the eyeshadow dry and it applied beautifully to the lid, giving it a tangerine hue and a faint sparkle. I think the eyeshadow would be even more vibrant and sparkly applied wet.
I chose shade 24 Pearly Violet. 24 is a muted, pale violet with a pearly finish. Like the previous shade, it has faint micro sparkles through it but this time they are silvery in hue. Again, the sparkle does transfer to the lid but it is extremely faint.
The texture of this eyeshadow is very soft and smooth, like shade 20. I think the pigment is slightly weaker than the other shades I have tried in the range, but I find that purple eyeshadows can often be a bit weaker for some reason. I still like it, though, as it gives the eyes a very soft hue of lilac with a faint silver sparkle. I think the sparkle and colour would come through more strongly when used wet.
Like the other High Pigment Wet and Dry eyeshadows, shades 20 and 24 are thin and square shaped, making them easy to store and take with you.
You can keep the eyeshadows in the compact or flip them out to store them in one of Kiko’s eyeshadow palettes (or any other magnetised palette). The pan comes out really easily; just press down gently in the corner of the eyeshadow to remove it. The eyeshadow has a magnet on the back of it, so it stays in place whether you keep it in the compact or store it in the palette. I really like this feature, as you can chop and change between the compact and palette, depending on your needs.
Here are some swatches of the two eyeshadows:
